    Conspiracy or Chaos: “The Farce Of Competing Political Parties Is A Smoke Screen Used By The Deep State To Maintain Their Control”

    “The main thing that I learned about conspiracy theory is that conspiracy theorists believe in a conspiracy because that is more comforting. The truth of the world is that it is actually chaotic. The truth is that it is not The Iluminati, or The Jewish Banking Conspiracy, or the Gray Alien Theory. The truth is far more frightening – Nobody is in control. The world is rudderless.” – Alan Moore

    Alan Moore, the renowned graphic novel writer, and author of the dystopian classic V for Vendetta, politically identifies as an anarchist. His view that all political states are an outgrowth of anarchy, with the biggest gang taking control and dictating how things will be run, is manifested in V for Vendetta. As an anarchist, you can understand why he is doubtful of conspiracy theories and an all-powerful entity controlling the world. He believes in a chaotic world competing gangs position themselves to gain power and control.

    “We live in a badly developed anarchist situation in which the biggest gang has taken over and have declared that it is not an anarchist situation – that it is a capitalist or a communist situation. But I tend to think that anarchy is the most natural form of politics for a human being to actually practice.”- Alan Moore

    The Guy Fawkes mask from V for Vendetta has been adopted by anarchist groups around the world, including: Anonymous, WikiLeaks, and the Occupy protestors. Moore’s positive view of the Occupy movement was based on his belief ordinary people had the right to reclaim what had been taken from them by criminal bankers. The initial impetus for the Occupy protests was the destruction of Main Street USA by Wall Street sociopaths, who not only escaped prosecution for their crimes, but were bailed out by the taxpayers they had pillaged and further enriched as captured politicians enabled them to get even bigger.

    Millions were evicted from their homes and lost their jobs. Middle class families have seen their real income continue to stagnate, while bankers, corporate executives, and politicians have reaped billions in bonuses, stock gains, and payoffs, provided by central bankers in their back pocket.

    “I can’t think of any reason why as a population we should be expected to stand by and see a gross reduction in the living standards of ourselves and our kids, possibly for generations, when the people who have got us into this have been rewarded for it – they’ve certainly not been punished in any way because they’re too big to fail. I think that the Occupy movement is, in one sense, the public saying that they should be the ones to decide who’s too big to fail. As an anarchist, I believe that power should be given to the people whose lives this is actually affecting.” – Alan Moore

    For those of us who visited Zuccotti Park during the early stages of the Occupy Movement, you understood this was a true populist protest with Ron Paul libertarians alongside liberal college students, old time hippies, middle aged men and women put out of work by the massive Wall Street fraud, and a myriad of citizens supporting varied causes and exercising their First Amendment rights. They were primarily focused on the true enemy – sociopathic Wall Street bankers and corrupt captured politicians. Sadly, the movement was co-opted in short order by Soros and his minions, just as the Tea Party had been co-opted by neo-cons earlier. Supposedly liberal mayors in NYC and across the country eventually unleashed their police state thugs on the protestors and wiped it out. Was this an example of chaos or conspiracy?

    There isn’t an easy answer to this question. I have to lean towards Alan Moore’s view of the world. There are certainly conspiratorial schemes plotted by powerful men in smoke filled rooms, but there are other gangs of men conspiring to push their competing agendas. Conspiracy theorists who think there is one massive conspiracy controlling every aspect of the world have an extremely tough case to make. People who believe everything is part of a grand conspiracy are seeking an easy solution to our problems, rather than dealing with the complexity and chaos which is the true nature of our world. V’s speech to London after blowing up the Old Bailey explains who is really to blame for allowing Deep State actors to gain control of our government, creating an Orwellian surveillance state.

    Good evening, London. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of the everyday routine, the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration – whereby those important events of the past, usually associated with someone’s death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, are celebrated with a nice holiday – I thought we could mark this November the fifth, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat.

    There are, of course, those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now orders are being shouted into telephones and men with guns will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn’t there?

    Cruelty and injustice…intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance, coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who’s to blame? Well certainly there are those who are more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable. But again, truth be told…if you’re looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

    I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn’t be? War. Terror. Disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you and in your panic, you turned to the now High Chancellor Adam Sutler. He promised you order. He promised you peace. And all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.

    Last night, I sought to end that silence. Last night, I destroyed the Old Bailey to remind this country of what it has forgotten. More than four hundred years ago, a great citizen wished to embed the fifth of November forever in our memory. His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice and freedom are more than words – they are perspectives. So if you’ve seen nothing, if the crimes of this government remain unknown to you, then I would suggest that you allow the fifth of November to pass unmarked. But if you see what I see, if you feel as I feel, and if you would seek as I seek…then I ask you to stand beside me, one year from tonight, outside the gates of Parliament. And together, we shall give them a fifth of November that shall never, ever, be forgot!

    We have no one to blame but ourselves for our current state of affairs. Blaming it on some shadowy group makes us feel somehow comforted. If an all-powerful entity is controlling the world, then we can easily convince ourselves anything we do to try and change the course of history would be fruitless. Therefore, we just bitch on internet forums. The truth is fear rules the actions of the majority.

    Those who constitute the Deep State are not conspiring directly by working together to rule the world and control the people. What they are doing is taking advantage of a dumbed down fearful populace by using the chaos, incompetence of institutions, and confusion spread by the propaganda press to institute their agendas. The Deep State consists of shadowy billionaires, mega-corporations, the military industrial complex, surveillance state agencies, crooked bought off politicians and their mass media mouthpieces.

    Those with the financial means and access to the power of the media have embraced the Edward Bernays worldview that an invisible government of the rich and powerful is necessary to manipulate the opinions of the masses through propaganda in order for society to function smoothly. Is this truly a conspiracy or just competing gangs of rich and connected men utilizing their wealth to mold the minds of the masses in a way that continues to benefit and enrich them?

    These Deep State players don’t meet every other Saturday to conspire and plot ways to pillage and enslave the masses. But they do know each other and silently agree to never rock the boat, whether they are Democrats, Republicans, liberals, conservatives, socialists, corporate executives, academics, or journalists. Money, control and power are at stake.

    Those currently pulling the wires behind the scenes are conspiratorial in nature. It has become crystal clear since the election of Trump the farce of competing political parties is just a smoke screen used by the Deep State players to maintain their control. Trump’s shocking upset and seeming disregard for bowing down to the status quo has forced politicians of all persuasions to reveal their true masters. Both parties favor bloated government control of healthcare, with a medical industrial complex controlling the show, writing the rules, reaping riches, and buying off politicians. “Free” healthcare buys votes.

    The flogging of the false Russian narrative by the corporate media has been used by neo-cons and ultra-libs to force Trump into the military interventionist camp – guaranteeing increased wealth for the military industrial complex. Neither party has any interest in cutting spending. The debt ceiling will be raised. The $4 trillion in annual spending will ratchet ever higher. Both sides are perfectly fine with $1 trillion deficits and $200 trillion of unfunded liabilities, as long as their gravy train keeps being fueled by the Deep State. They will spend your money until it all collapses under the mountains of debt.

    Donald Jeffries explains why it is vital to the vested interests they scorn and ridicule anyone who uses factual data to prove conspiratorial intent by the government or its cancerous corporate outgrowths.

    “I can remember when believing in conspiracies wasn’t cool. Now, in the second decade of the twenty-first century, more people are starting to sense that things may not be as they appear to be. The truth in Lord Acton’s classic axiom that “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely” becomes more self-evident every day. Politicians from the only two parties we have to choose from break promises, are unresponsive to the will of the people, and opt for war, austerity measures, and state control over and over again. Gary Allen, author of the book None Dare Call It Conspiracy, defined things perfectly when he wrote, “It must be remembered that the first job of any conspiracy, whether it be in politics, crime or within a business office, is to convince everyone else that no conspiracy exists.” – Donald Jeffries – Hidden History: An Exposé of Modern Crimes, Conspiracies, and Cover-Ups in American Politics

    It ultimately comes down to power and control over the key mechanisms of finance, taxation, legislation and the media. There isn’t one specific group of conspirators working together to rule the world. Is George Soros attempting to influence and control what happens in the U.S. and Europe to benefit his interests? Yes. Are the Koch brothers attempting to do the same with a different end goal? Yes. Are Pelosi and Schumer conspiring to push their left wing agenda? Yes. Are McConnell and Ryan conspiring to implement their establishment vision? Yes.

    They have competing agendas, but they want the status quo to remain intact. No one within the establishment wants to change anything of substance. The current system benefits their personal interests, while destroying the lives of hard working American citizens. The country is currently run by same party with slightly different rhetoric and policies put forth by the Republican side and Democrat side. Promises are made to voters and then reneged on in short order. Therefore, no significant change ever occurs. Meanwhile, the anger and frustration build among the deplorables.

    What Trump has realized quickly is how powerful the vested interests are and how ruthless they will act to retain their power. During the campaign Trump ran on a non-interventionist platform, looking to repair our relationship with Russia, scorning NATO, and lessening our involvement in the Middle East. He know rattles his saber on a daily basis, threatening war with North Korea, Venezuela, Iran, Syria and anyone else who doesn’t toe the American Empire line.

    He provokes Russia and China on a regular basis. He has sent more troops to Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria, while expanding spending on the military. Neo-cons and neo-libs don’t think Trump is being aggressive enough in policing the world. They won’t be happy until middle class boys across the land are sacrificed as cannon fodder for our welfare warfare surveillance state.

    Trump bloviated about the stock market being in a bubble during the campaign when it was trading at 18,000. He now pronounces the record highs of 22,000 as proof of his brilliant economic leadership. Meanwhile, the economy has grown at less than 2% during his first six months, retailers are going bankrupt and closing stores at a record pace, consumer spending and real wages are barely growing, and consumer debt has reached all-time highs. Best time to buy, according to the Prez.

    A critical thinking individual might wonder how a market could be in a bubble at 18,000 but not be in a bubble at 22,000 ten months later. During the campaign Trump accused Obama and his BLS minions of manipulating the data to make horrible jobs numbers appear strong. Now he bellows about the strong jobs market as if we’re now supposed to believe the hysterically absurd 4.3% reported rate when 101 million out of 255 million working age Americans aren’t working. And a vast majority of the jobs are either part-time and/or low paying service jobs with shitty pay and benefits.

    Trump is playing the status quo Deep State game in an attempt to fend off a coup currently in progress by lying to the masses. Jobs are plentiful, consumers are confident, the economy is booming, the stock market is always right. Ignore those vacant crumbling malls, your declining disposable income as health care cost increases outpace your salary increases by a factor of five, and your ever increasing credit card balance.

    Trump wouldn’t be using the tried and true method of distracting from domestic failure by starting a foreign conflict because he understands how easily manipulated the ignorant American masses can be moved by fear? Rather than draining the swamp, Trump has been forced to swim with the gators. And his own people hired a Deep State alligator hunter named Mueller who will stop at nothing to mount Trump as a trophy or force him to depart the DC swamp for the friendly environs of Manhattan Island.

    Trump belittled the troll-like Yellen during the campaign, declaring her low interest policy was geared to help Obama/Clinton. He talked tough about replacing Yellen and increasing rates. He evidently got the talk from the banker cabal and he suddenly loves low interest rates and believes Yellen is doing a bang up job. He has filled his cabinet with vampire squid and other Wall Street scum. He is as beholden to the Fed and their Wall Street puppeteers as his predecessors. Wall Street remains in control, while Main Street will continue to get screwed. It’s not a conspiracy. It’s about powerful special interests capturing the levers of government.

    Our government doesn’t in any way resemble its original concept of a republic. It doesn’t even resemble a democracy at this point. Since FDR and specifically since LBJ, we’ve become a welfare/warfare state. Since Bush II we’ve devolved into a corporate fascist surveillance socialist state. Despite rhetoric about free market capitalism, both parties have embraced socialism. The super-rich, bankers, corporate executives, liberals and conservatives came to the realization socialism disguised as capitalism fills their coffers at a much higher rate than true free market capitalism.

    They have bought off the poor with unfunded welfare benefits, the old and poor with unfunded “free” healthcare, government union workers with unfunded pension benefits and all with unfunded social security payments. Trillion dollar annual deficits and $200 trillion in unfunded welfare promises, enabled by Federal Reserve easy money policies, does wonders for the bank accounts of Deep State players and their acolytes. Spending money you don’t have is the ultimate confidence game, but the payback will be a bitch.

    “Why are the super-rich for socialism? Don’t they have the most to lose? I take a look at my bank account and compare it with Nelson Rockefeller’s and it seems funny that I’m against socialism and he’s out promoting it.” Or is it funny? In reality, there is a vast difference between what the promoters define as socialism and what it is in actual practice. The idea that socialism is a share-the-wealth program is strictly a confidence game to get the people to surrender their freedom to an all-powerful collectivist government. While the Insiders tell us we are building a paradise on earth, we are actually constructing a jail for ourselves.” – Gary Allen, None Dare Call It Conspiracy

    The Deep State thrives on chaos, confusion, and complexity. Our financial system, healthcare system, entitlement systems, military, and government agencies are too big and complex to fix. Those pulling the strings don’t want the public to understand how anything operates. Supposed “experts” are put forth on the corporate propaganda networks to further confuse the masses. The purpose of government run public education is to matriculate non-thinking socially engineered consumers into the world.

    The vast majority of iGadget distracted, math challenged, functionally illiterate morons will believe anything the propaganda media peddles because they are incapable of critical thinking. They have an infinite capacity for rationalizing how spending money they don’t have on things they don’t need is actually making their lives better. This same mindset keeps them from questioning how their government can run up a $20 trillion national debt (with $15 trillion added since 2000), with no adverse consequences. These debts are the ultimate threat to our survival as a nation.

    Based on everything that has happened in the last twelve months, to believe this is part of some well-planned conspiracy is a reach of epic proportions. The Deep State/status quo were sure their hand-picked candidate Hillary Clinton was a shoe in. Since November the country has been roiled in election result challenges, chaotic antifa violence, fake news stories, silent coups, thousands of tweets, congressional investigations, assassination attempts on congressmen, special prosecutors, increasing odds of civil and foreign wars, and deteriorating economic conditions for the majority. Just when you thought the chaos couldn’t get more pronounced, we experienced a week of sheer turmoil and tumult. Even the stock market stopped rising for a day or two.

    I’ve been observing the goings on this week with a jaundiced eye. As the rhetoric between President Cheeto and Kim Jung Nutjob has ramped up to nuclear proportions I’ve been reminded of the rhetoric and fake news leading up to the invasion of Iraq. Suddenly, confidential reports are released saying the midget dictator has miniaturized a nuclear warhead to go on top of his ICBMs that now supposedly can kill everyone in the U.S. The exaggeration of this country’s nuclear capabilities is on par with Hussein’s WMD and killing of babies in Kuwaiti hospitals.

    The neo-cons smell blood and more money for their beloved arms peddlers. The propagandists have two thirds of Americans fearful of this rotund midget with an IQ of 85. Trump then set in motion his backup plan – attack Venezuela, which poses absolutely zero risk to America or our interests. But it does have the largest oil reserves on earth.

    Now this weekend’s escapades in Charlottesville have worked the propaganda media into a tizzy. It’s these types of stories that reveal all the corporate media to be peddling the same narrative. Fox News was peddling the same white hate narrative as CNN and MSNBC. Because protestors with proper permits included some white supremacists, nazi sympathizers, and KKK members, all participants were branded as racists. Their right to protest regarding the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue was guaranteed by the First Amendment.

    It was the violent Soros funded antifa SJWs who were bussed in to create a violent confrontation, while government officials told police to stand down and let the clashes happen. The Deep State is desirous of a race war and their media mouthpieces are busy spreading misinformation and falsehoods to further rile up the masses. Their job is to portray all flyover country whites who elected Trump as rednecks, racists and white supremacists. And at least half the country believes this fake news.

    “The militia experts accuse anti-government agitants of paranoia, yet they spin around and claim that militias speak in coded phrases, have underground bunkers, and are secretly conspiring to take over the world and enslave minorities. They say it`s lunacy that men at the pentagon can conspire, yet they`re certain that farmers out on the plain are plotting as we speak. They depict the United Nations as weak and ineffectual, yet they portray raggedy-ass backwoodsmen as the world`s biggest organized military threat.” – Jim Goad, The Redneck Manifesto: How Hillbillies, Hicks, and White Trash Became America’s Scapegoats

    I don’t believe what is happening in this country and around the world is some vast conspiracy. But I do believe the Deep State thrives on chaos and fear. They used 9/11 to pass the Patriot Act, creating an Orwellian surveillance state. They used the Wall Street created 2008 global financial implosion to rig the financial systems in their favor, while issuing mind boggling levels of government debt and artificially suppressing interest rates to create the largest financial bubble in world history.

    I do believe we are in the midst of a Fourth Turning where the mood of the masses has turned unequivocally dark. As we approach the ninth year of this Crisis period, the intensification and potential for enormous levels of domestic and foreign bloodshed ramps up by the day. With a decade or so remaining in this period of turmoil, chaos and war, the existing social order will be swept away and replaced by something new. But not necessarily better.

    Whatever Deep State conspiracies are being plotted by various gangs seeking power during this Fourth Turning, they will all rot from within. Human nature never changes. Hubris and greed will lead to miscalculations and missteps which will result in another financial crash, civil chaos, and world war. Blood will be spilled in vast quantities if the wrong people make the wrong decisions. Chaos will rein for the next decade and the outcome is very much in doubt. Get prepared mentally and physically for the trials ahead.

      There is some truth to this article, and some very important truth. Think, e.g., Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. But I don’t buy the moral equivalence gambit. Think Joe Miller, who ran against Murkowski. He did NOT run as a Democrat candidate, and indeed he never would or could. Or again, recently there was talk of if you are a Democrat, you MUST support abortion.

      I get it that there is a deep state, and both parties are involved. But I don’t agree that all on the Republican side are. I even hear people write about how the Tea Party is co-opted. No doubt, some are. But I am a Tea Party person, and know many who are, and we are in NO WISE co-opted. Next they’ll come up with folks like the Bundys or the OathKeepers or Constitutional Sheriffs Assoc is “part of the whole deep state.” Sorry, I don’t buy it. In fact, that is just a scam to demoralize the few people who still remain fighting the fascist left. And yes, the left IS fascist (merger of the socialist state with co-opted, crony big biz).

      This whole moral equivalence is the argument of lazy thinking, the creed of Grima Wormtongue. As I say, I don’t buy it.

      • Former TBP'er says:

        Jim Quinn’s site was once a bastion for excellent discourse about where our country was headed. It’s now been taken over by the “alt right” nutjobs that glorify the killing of a counter protester and advocate for totalitarianism in the US. Several members are proud Nazis / supporters of Marx and Hitler.

        Listen to Oath Keepers. They still uphold the Constitution and position themselves against the alt right factions, as they know these groups don’t support the Bill of Rights. Most importantly, read, research and make up your own mind. Quinn was good before the crazies got to him.

        • Anonymous says:

          Old man, Clinton, looks a little aroused– maybe because the young lady to his side (opposite his yukky wife)? But then, the missis Clinton looks a little happier than usual, as well… um…

      • This article is a very good read and most here can benefit in their own understanding from it. The explanation of what the deep state is hits the nail squarely on the head and is an excellent assessment. I would add that our government has morphed into a giant criminal enterprise via the deep state control freaks. For whatever reason the DEMs seem to be far greater aligned with the deep state shadow government at this juncture. Seems that is likely because of the Obama 8 years to steer it that way ? No doubt they put it all on steroids for almost a decade !

    2. PO'd Patriot says:

      Time soon to put down the pen and pick up the rifle. What went on down in Charlottesville was just a preamble. Once the fluff(Antifa and the lefties) have been mowed down, then its on to Traitorsville (DC).

      • CrackSummSkulls says:

        Our Founding Fathers were smart. They gave us the 2nd Amendment Right, when the 1st Amendment Right is no longer working for us.

        Stop writing and start shooting. Politicians will soon sober up and start doing whats right for our country. However 30% or more of congress are being blackmailed by Aipac’s Do as I say Policy. $38 Billion of our monies, far in excess of all other nations combined in foreign aid is being spent to destroy us. It makes no sense. America is under siege by parasites. Term limitits on all politicians is vastly needed. Drain the swamp, rinse and repeat.

        • Old Guy says:

          Ok you could replace every politician in the entire country with perfect cantidates and it wouldn’t solve anything. Take a hard look at Illinoi. No matter who they elect they cannot become fiscally solvent. Its a simple problem very east to understand why they are no longer fiscally viable. They spend more than they take in. There are more folks taking more money out of the public than there are folks putting money into those public coffers. And this situation was enacted via the ballot box. There is only one solution . That is to reduce expenditures. They must reduce the parasitic drain. However they cannot reverse the shortfall so they try and robb the producers even more. Of course the productive just leave and take their money with them. Now Ill. is simply the first glaring example that is very noticeable. There is a very large majority of state &local goverments, personal households & buisnesses ect. that are Zombies. The only stay erect by countinually restructuring and refinancing their ever increasing debt. however the value of their assets most times is much less than the amount of debt they have. Our federal government is in the same boat. Except the federal government can pay its expences with fiat digital dollars created out of thin air. the individusl citizens and states ect. cannot create money anyone would accept out of thin air. So until the lopsided situation of too many parasite taker losers and too few producing making winners is reversed the decline continues. Now eventually if & when the USA’s digital petro dollar becomes unacceptiable as payment for the debts our government incurs. It will not make one iotia of difference who is occupying elected office. Those in power know this. And when it all unravels here those who are not self reliant will soon be doing the very same thing we see in Venezuelia at this very moment. There are too many parasites and too few producers. So its right there to see what you should do. Forget political or ballott box solutions. forget protest & rebellion. None of those actions are productive. They do not address the problem. The real problem is too many cull parasite losers and too few prize winning producers. What to do? Become self reliant enough that you will not be begging and demanding the Government take care of you like is happening in Venezuelia. Prep for that type of event. And if you prep for that type of thing and it don’t occur that is wonderful. Those kind of preps like providing you own food and shelter are just as good in relatively good times as they would be in extremely bad times. identify the problem and work out a viable solution that will benefit you and yours. Think about it protest, petitions, voting & politicans, revolution,s killing other people ect do not address the root cause and are not viable solutions.

            This will never be accomplished until we begin manufacturig our own products…from toothpicks to shampoo to refrigerators.
            2)the scale of foreign aid is outrageous compared to the parasitic drain

          You dont really believe that do you? In my entire lifespan i have only on rare occasion seen a politician do anything good for the common folks, the politicians are some of the parasites that have ruined our home

          • Old Guy says:

            well I have sen a politician who did good. Arkansas was really poor during the tenure of Orville Faubus. Winthrop Rockerfeller adopted Arkansas as his home state. Built a home and ranch at Petit Jean Mountian. He ran as a republican opposing Faubus. Finally in 1964 He became the first republican governor since reconstruction. And He did good works. He cleaned up the vice and gambling at Hot springs. The democrat legislature wouldn’t fund any of his projects. He still wanted to do something for the people. So the Rockerfeller foundation Paid for his projects. They bought new up to date school books for every school in the state. He started the Arkansas industrial developemebt commission . And convinced wealthy friends to start factorys here. He brought jobs to the people. The Rockerfellers paid out of their very own pockets to build state parks. His influence caused dams to be built making lakes like Lake norfork ,bull shoals and many others. The governors job paid $3000 in 1964. His son Winthrop Jr was in recient times the lt governor and did a good job. He believed in giving back. Like Trump he wasn’t a lawyer or a career politician. And he certianly didn’t need the job to become wealthy. He had enough money he didn’t need to steal from the citizens.

      • Heartless says:

        I wish people would understand that when all is said and done it is only force and ability and willingness to carry it out that counts. Money, financial success, equates to force by the same principle. Imagine having a million dollars and buying nothing with it. What separates you then from a pauper? You’ve the ability but do not do anything with it. Your willingness to do so is missing. It can be argued that “…. but, but, but… I could ….” and the fact remains that you do nothing. The forces arrayed over us and in control have the means, the tools and they certainly act. Until the rest of the deplorable masses rise up and ‘do’ rather than talk or sit on their duffs, run off to the hills like cowards thinking to preserve themselves…….. all of those will eventually lose. Those in power play centuries long games of chess. It has come the time to overturn the checkerboard and scatter the pieces and create an entirely new game. Or at the least, to start a new game with new players.

        • Old Guy says:

          That sounds well and good . However its futile because there simply enough ready willing and able who can pass the foxhole test. So we do whatever we can without jepordising our current situation. Only when our backs are against the wall will most of us strike back. I was taught when your not certain what to do then do nothing. That way you don’t cause additional harm. You can chastise and lamblast me all you wish I don’t care. After breakfast I went out and weeded the garden and built a portable chicken tractor. Im gonna start on a rabbit tractor this afternoon. Anything that helps us to grow our own food is a step in the right direction. If The usa become,s a Venezuela It will be needed. If not its still a good thing.

      “Water found to be wet”

      • CrackSummSkulls says:

        Angry Beaver. Sometimes water just doesn’t seem to be that wet. I think we need to protest and riot we want wetter water. lol

        • CrackSummSkulls says:

          And I will add, since being off the grid, and not on municipal water, my skin and hair is much better looking and healthier. Municipal water tends to have so many chemicals in it, including chlorine that it will massively dry out our skin and hair. People don’t need to shower every day, maybe clean up a bit but showering twice a day is bad for your body. Since I have not been using municipal water, I rarely find the need to put on any skin lotion at all and my hair is much better feeling, that the dry feeling hair when using municipal water. So just getting off the grid you will use less lotions and hair conditioners and body products and let your natural body oils keep you skin healthy fresh and supple. Just an observation regarding water and the source of the water and what it does to your body.

            Some Stats on dead beat Dads:

            34% of Fathers are under orders to pay child support.
            of which, only 72.9% of those children are receiving that support.
            Most don’t pay because they are prevented from seeing their kids.

            More Stats:

            “1. 40.9% of single mothers were living below the poverty line in 2011, which was more than 5 times the amount of married or couple families.
            2. 15.6% of children today are living in a single parent family because of divorce.
            3. 80% of single parent households are run by the mother and not the father.
            4. 30% of single mothers have more than 1 child for whom they are responsible.
            5. Out of all the single mothers, 45% of them were never married.
            6. Single mothers who have a child while unmarried are at the greatest risk of being homeless and living in poverty.
            7. Only 60% of single mothers are employed on a full-time basis.
            8. 24 million children, 1 out of 3, live without their biological father in the home.

                Relevant to the WWII generation he is correct. Generations have got softer and now it appears that feminization is the order of the day.

                Society is being molded, shaped, transformed. The greater the mass communication the greater the potential of accomplishing it. Everything becomes a psychological collective. What was personal, where you go, what you do is now voluntarily put out in public for collective approval or criticism. Its net effect is to blend the masses into a compliant group.

                None of this is accidental.

          • cranerigger says:

I’ll bet there are some great patriot drill instructors that can weed out the chaff. These young fools are going to force the nation to return to a draft.

          • Beaver , excellent analogy/comparison. A few nights ago I was watching Sadhguru videos and he said people some years back could do far more physically at 60 years old than todays 20 year olds, and he is quite right. I already knew this so I was not shocked at all. He was talking about using our bodies to create our own health and that is something I have also known about for some years as well. He was talking about how we are far too sedentary and the many ill affects that has on our overall health and well being. Interesting guy for sure with all kinds of common sense and knowledge. Part of the problem is todays 60 year olds gave up around 40 years old and got very stupid about their own health and fitness and now the 40 year olds give up even younger ? so it is all self induced and completely not necessary. I will be 70 next birthday and stronger with far more stamina than I had in RVN in 68-69. So I imagine I am doing something quite right, hey ? Here is that video

      • aljamo, No, he was not saying that ? He was saying it is just people in many positions that are simply acting out of greed and their own interest and not necessarily the popular theme of Illuminati or a bunch of guys sitting around planning out the worlds ill events. He is saying they are so engrossed in their crimes they cannot see it for what it is. In other words they are truly sociopaths and psychopaths running our world. And that is spot on accurate !

        Think about it? Isn’t all of our worlds insanity caused by people ? Isn’t our corrupted government just insane people allowed to run amok and control us ? That is what he is saying. I say the same thing quite often and I know many here do not understand that simple premise, but it is the truth of the matter. Everything is always about people that cause all the worlds problems. We can solve it all with some prosecutions and executions !

So I doubt there really is an illuminati planning such shit ? What makes far more sense is that the control freaks are in fact simply insane and may well fuck up everything so bad that it all comes tumbling down one day ?

      Jacques Mallet du Pan (1749—10 May 1800), wrote about the first leftist reign of terror, in his 1793 essay that ”…the Revolution always eats its own children” (“A l’exemple de Saturne, la révolution dévore ses enfants”)

The truth of the world is that it is actually chaotic. The truth is that it is not The Iluminati, or The Jewish Banking Conspiracy, or the Gray Alien Theory. The truth is far more frightening – Nobody is in control. The world is rudderless.” – Alan Moore

      Out of chaos comes order….says the jewish freemasons who control our reality.

      this article is total BS. Its marxism and the jews behind our demise. Period. Completely in control and for quite sometime now. Why would SHTF print this garbage?

      The Census Bureau has just reported that about half of the American population will soon be non-white or non-European. And they will all be American citizens. We have tipped beyond the point where a Nazi-Aryan party will be able to prevail in this country. We [Jews] have been nourishing the American climate of opposition to ethnic bigotry for about half a century. That climate has not yet been perfected, but the heterogeneous nature of our population tends to make it irreversible Earl Raab. Writer, previously Executive Director of the Jewish Community Relations Council.

      Elite Jewry, when supporting multicultural policies, concurrently employ a strategy of divide and conquer. Israel Cohen (Jewish) sums up this strategy with the following quote:

      “We must realize that our party’s most powerful weapon is racial tensions. By propounding into the consciousness of the dark races that for centuries they have been oppressed by whites, we can mold them to the program of the Communist Party. In America we will aim for subtle victory. While inflaming the Negro minority against the whites, we will endeavor to instill in the whites a guilt complex for their exploitation of the Negroes. We will aid the Negroes to rise in prominence in every walk of life, in the professions and in the world of sports and entertainment. With this prestige, the Negro will be able to intermarry with the whites and begin a process which will deliver America to our cause. — Thomas Abernathy read this passage into the Congressional Record on June 7, 1957 (vol. 103, p. 8559)

      Socialism vs Racism

      A young black kid asks his mother, “Mama, what is Socialism and what is Racism?”
      “Well Child,..Socialism is when the white folks work every Day so we can get all our governmental entitlement stuff for free. You know…..like our free cell phones for each family member, rent subsidy, food stamps, EBT, WIC, free school breakfast, lunch, and in some places supper; free healthcare, utility subsidy, and on and on….you know, that’s Socialism.”

      “But, Mama, don’t the white people get pissed off about that?”
      “Sure they do, Honey. That’s called Racism.”

      Wake up America, its behavior, not religion or color of skin that is destroying us…the enemy is already within the gates…and its marxism and the Jew World Order that is behind all the instability and race baiting by CNN/MSM and our own government. We were usurped in a silent coup on November 22, 1963 and those same people are stall running the show.

      This is exactly what the Russians and Germans experienced when the jews took over both nations at the turn of the century…now its America’s turn.

    18. READ the US CONSTITUTION. Why? Because we are NOT supposed to have “political parties”, factions as the framers called them. Political parties are NOT to select the people we vote for, that is a “power” they gave themselves (yes, the Dems and Repubs). We are not to be divided along “party lines”, but are supposed to be deciding who will most follow the US Constitution when we vote. Nor are we to put in measures within our Constitutions – state – that go against our natural rights. We are NOT to let agencies be created that also work against our freedom, instead of defending them as is required of all who serve within our governments.

      But how can you vote wisely when you let those who are working to destroy our nation tell you that we are NOT a constitutional republic where everything those who serve within our governments are in writing, but instead tells us repeatedly that we are a “democracy”.

      George Washington, Farewell Address, Sept. 17, 1796: “And of fatal tendency … to put, in the place of the delegated will of the Nation, the will of a party – often a small but artful and enterprising minority. … They are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the Power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government; destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”

      John Adams: “There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.”

      John Adams: “Abuse of words has been the great instrument of sophistry and chicanery, of party, faction, and division of society.”

      James Madison: “If our nation is ever taken over, it will be taken over from within.”

      James Madison knew that there was always a possibility that: “men of factious tempers, of local prejudices, or of sinister designs, may, by intrigue, by corruption, or by other means, first obtain the [votes], and then betray the interests, of the people” so he recommended that the people always watch those that serve within our governments closely and hold them accountable for their actions.

      Daniel Webster: “We may be tossed upon an ocean where we can see no land – nor, perhaps, the sun or stars. But there is a chart and a compass for us to study, to consult, and to obey. That chart is the Constitution.”
      Daniel Webster: “Is the Constitution worth preserving?” He said, “Then guard it as you would the very seat of your life. Guard it not only against the open blows of violence but also against that spirit of change.”
