Act II: Solidifying Control
We the People just want to live and enjoy our lives and not be bothered by excessive government interference. The government is hell-bent on ensuring we have to beg and pay them for their permission to do even basic things. How do we find freedom in this world? We will touch on that in Act IV. The topic here is control. Through that age-old approach of Problem, pain, solution, what “solution” are the-powers-that-be (TPTB) going to try and sell to us?
As Turkey marches forward in its plan to establish “Buffer Zones” in Syria, the nature of the Turkish-backed forces and the real purpose of the Turkish invasion are becoming more and more clear for all to see.
As many in the alternative media have realized for quite some time, Turkey’s military incursion into Syria is an attempt to establish the solidification of ISIS/terrorist staging grounds inside Syria as well as to prevent the solidification of Kurdish forces in both Syria and Turkey. While the mainstream media tends to present Turkish-backed forces as moderates fighting against ISIS, the truth is that the Turk-backed fighters are barely distinguishable from ISIS. In fact, in many cases, the groups are one in the same.
They do, however, provide a good pretext for claiming victories over ISIS, justifying, and maintaining a hold on territory seized by these terrorists after they have “driven out ISIS.”
Imagine for a moment if an online news media outlet that supposedly inspires citizen action on the environment and human rights was espousing that every American – man, woman or child – should be extra careful not to eat, drink or touch some specific poison that was spread around the land, but at the same time said that consuming the very same poison as medicine was wonderful. Would your “common sense” alarms all be sounding off? Does that sound like some warped form of “global stewardship?”
What do you imagine is the poison we are talking about here – is it nuclear radiation, chemical pesticides or industrial pollution? Something is contaminating the air, soil, sediment, plants, fish and wildlife across Western North America, and Alternet is sending out their noble “call to arms” for all Americans to take heed for the sake of health, the environment, and human rights in general, but don’t worry about injecting that exact same massive threat into your blood and muscle tissue with a syringe because it magically turns into helpful medicine when it bypasses your body’s natural defense filters, like your skin, lungs and digestive tract.
All the hottest, richest names in tech attended an exclusive ping pong party tocelebrate the birthday of Dropbox CEO Drew Houston (8/10) at Spin’s “Babes and Balls” party in San Fransisco.
The young, sexy elites played ping pong and drank expensive libations you probably can’t afford with Olympic table tennis champ Lily Zhang (9/10).
James Rickards: Long-Term Forecast For $10,000 Gold
James Rickards, geopolitical and monetary expert and best selling author of the ‘The New Case for Gold’ has written an interesting piece for the Daily Reckoning on why he believes gold will reach $10,000 in the long term.
The FBI: The Silent Terror Of The Fourth Reich … Lately, there’s been a lot of rhetoric comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. The concern is that a Nazi-type regime may be rising in America … That process, however, began a long time ago. … In fact, following the second World War, the U.S. government recruited Hitler’s employees, adopted his protocols, embraced his mindset about law and order, implemented his tactics in incremental steps, and began to lay the foundations for the rise of the Fourth Reich. -Rutherford Institute
The FBI’s Fourth Reich began as a result of German efficiency and has by now silently taken over all aspects of the FBI. So impressed was the FBI with German authoritarianism, that the FBI recruited at least 1,000 thousand Nazis over the years and especially at the end of the war.
While thousands of Nazis were allowed to immigrate and were given disguised identifies, Jews were turned away from the US at the same time. They were supposedly considered a security risk.

German officials won’t label Thursday’s ax attack in Dusseldorf a “rampage,” underscoring the country’s commitment to political correctness at the expense of public safety.
“We are not using the words ‘rampage’ or ‘terror,’” a police spokesman told media, despite the attacker targeting at least seven random people, including tourists.
Officials likewise downplayed a similar German train attack in July, that time committed by a Muslim migrant, by claiming it wasn’t exactly terrorism because the suspect was simply “inspired by ISIS.”
We aren’t supposed to talk about what goes on behind closed doors when the cameras are off and the public can’t see what is happening. There is corruption in virtually every large organization, but those that hold themselves out as “spiritual leaders” need to understand that they are going to be held to a higher standard than everyone else. And when those “spiritual leaders” greatly violate the trust that the public has put in them, the fallout can be absolutely devastating. In this article you are going to read about some things that are deeply disturbing. An immense wave of evil has swept through major religious organizations, and the Catholic Church is certainly no exception.
India’s Currency Ban – Part X
It has now been four months since Narendra Modi declared about 86% of monetary value of currency illegal. Linked here is the last in my series of updates, which was written soon after the deadline to deposit the demonetized currency. Most of the banned currency was eventually deposited, making a mockery of Modi, who had claimed that unaccounted money would not reach the banks. Perhaps 3% of the cash never reached the banks.
This last week marks four separate instances of something that has broken here at the house which I could have “called someone” and would have likely cost me a ton of money during the last few months — but in each case the cost of the repair was either nothing or just a few dollars.
The first was my oven, right around the holidays. It stopped heating, which is a real bitch when you’re in the middle of making food. Usually that’s the heating element, which is typically $25 or so to buy (and can be changed by anyone who can successfully use a screwdriver in under 30 minutes.) The element in this case was in fact bad, but in addition there was a fuse in the back of the oven which had also “cooked.”
It didn’t fail from overcurrent (a short) it failed from a bad connection which heated it up enough for it to pretty-much catch the fuse holder on fire. Cost of the repair? $5 for a new fuse holder and $25 for a lower element. The “snowflake” solution would have been to buy a new $1,000 range/oven combination.
In recent articles, I’ve highlighted items from the latest WikiLeaks data-dump of CIA files. For example:
The CIA’s use of other nations’ hacking tools, in order to give the impression that, when the CIA hacks into secret areas, it looks like other nations did the hacking.
All this is SOP for the CIA and intelligence agencies around the world.
Spies tell lies. A day without lying is a day without joy.
Spies play chess. “Well, when we leak THIS information to the press, they’ll emphasize the source of the leak (of course we know it’s a fake source we’ve chosen). But when we leak THAT information, the press will emphasize the content of the leak—which is what we want them to do in that case.”
