SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE THEATER OF THE APOCALYPSE?

Yesterday I made my usual video Fireside chat News and Views from the Nefarium, and at the opening of that video, I mentioned that with the recent events in the world - the BP oil spill, the Japan earthquake, the Libya mess - that I felt as if we were living in the Apocalypse Theater, and I asked if anyone else felt or thought that way as well, and asked for why they thought that way.

Well, my habit when I blog is to search various news sites for things that interest me, or that I'd like to comment on, or that I think others might be interested in or might not know about. As a result, I like to visit a view sites regularly just to see what's up. Yea, that means I even tune in to the dreaded idiot box for the latest Matrix News from See BS, NBC, ABC, Fox, CNN (Cable Non-News), and so on. Well, this morning(which is Friday morning actually even though this is scheduled for Saturday) I checked in with google's news and here is a direct copy-and-paste of what google is saying are the eight top stories:

Yup....you read that correctly: in spite of the nuclear meltdowns in Japan, a Middle East running amok, a massive geopolitical realignment going on, what interests Americans are the domestic jobless rate (entirely understandable), the NASDAQ performance... and then comes all the hallmarks of American barbarism with its galloping and somersaulting march into irrelevance and insanity: we are more interested (according to google) in the LA Dodgers, American Idol, .... well, you get the picture...

...and it's a bleak picture. Marie Antoinnette is reported as allegedly having said, when informed of the plight of France's lower classes and the brewing revolution that would follow their not being able to obtain bread, "Let them eat cake."  The world is changing at a record pace... and America is focused on NASDAQ, the LA Dodgers (they belong in Brooklyn anyway), the Dallas Mavericks, and American Idol.

American Idol is aptly named... indolent America needs an idol, for the old messianisms of American culture - its boundless and almost messianic faith in its own government and leaders - are crumbling.

.... can anyone recommend a good country to move to?

  1. The same story goes on here in the Netherlands, no real news, just idols and sports…….lucky for me i was able to hear Richard Hoagland speak in Amsterdam on Sunday…… You should have been there too mr. Farrell…..The both of you can realy teach the people what is important….

  2. My wife says Marie A. actually said-“let them eat brioche”
    It isn’t just the bible that loses nuance in the translation.

  3. Paul De Gagne

    A correction please. Zinn didn’t say, “lattice-spider-web” just the word Cacoon. That added frame was just a pinch or buzz-word from me. ( Maybe I should find out how to spell cacoon? I always been kind of sloppy but then a forum should be more relaxed where we don’t always “Have To” mind our p’s and q’s?

  4. Paul De Gagne

    I remember the Late Howard Zinn saying in an interview, ” The American People on a whole have no recollection of History. They live in the US as though they are wrapped up in a Giant Cacoon or “lattice-spider-web.” I like these two simple statements. (I am not fond of Zinn anymore for he took part in the bombing of citizens in Drisden, Germany and that was pure genocide. Must we have to forgive people? Everyone seems to think so? I guess he can be forgiven because he woke up and influenced many in the alternate, no – revisionist history buffs field of inquiry. I do like that Studds guy who wrote “oral histories” of citizens in the US Great Depression.)

    I suggest we do as Nancy Reagan advised and “Just Say NO!” when we suspect we are being led around in circles. I once did that when I was in the Marine Corp refusing to go to Vietnam and kill people. I survived to tell it and I got out under honorable causes to boot! It might cost you your neck if you tried that stunt in Afganistan today. I don’t know. There are still plenty of whistle-blowers with courage around.

    So we don’t have to be sheeple.

    I like a few of the comments Nancy brought about Technologically-Induced Sleep. I wonder about involuntary compliance and all this paranoid mind-control business you hear. Not that we shouldn’t be cautious but still. How would I know if some “freaking rays are brainwashing me?” (Should I get a tinfoil hat and paper-clips as a foil to off-set these effects like some poor souls do)

    It’s like the “Unconscious?” If you know anything about the Unconscious then it isn’t the Unconscious anymore. It’s a conscious content. The Unconscious is always the Unconscious. Pretty baffling isn’t it?.

    This brain we inherit as a member of a species is not all we got. If I should get zapped one day (I suspect Farrell thinks about this once in a while for he did respond to Nancy’s comment) I believe something else will come to our rescue provided we do the legwork. ( What exactly consists or constitutes “legwork.” I don’t know! Just will yourself free between the times (spaces) we are feeling just like little-smucks and do the research..

    We all need a push sometimes. I find myself stopping for a break with this book – The Philosopher’s Stone.” Too much to digest all at once! I am taking a short break and reading more about how we “See Things” or how our “Visual Apparatus Works.” After that I will continue with the book.

  5. A couple of hours ago I made some comments, but am now awakened with an interesting thought – Dr. you listed the THEATER OF THE APOCALYPSE with the first note as the BP oil spill….think about this: two natural food sources with iodine are fish and kelp …. it is interesting that two of these sources were destroyed first. (“They” have been taking salt away from the diet over the years and salt was the other food with Iodine added)
    Then came the earthquake showing more than electrical plants in operation (Xenon is from nuclear fusion and is a surgery sleep inducer) hum… how long will the American’s be ‘asleep’ on this – is the major surgery past, present or future? Where is the list of the issues of the last three years or so — what else is coincidental?

  6. I found a talk show by Michael Savage a few months ago (a former New Yorker based in San Fran no less). He has been saying the same thing and has the third highest ratings on national radio stations. Where is the ‘news’ that would keep the country ‘safe’ and ‘prosperous’…? I haven’t heard another talk show host saying those things – you and a few others keep the voice of understanding alive on paper and interviews. Thank you.
    PS if tincture of Iodine is not available – a good ‘kelp’ is your next option…of course, the faith in the Christ of the Creator God is always the first guidance (I didn’t say religion!).

  7. Well, I for one, am much more interested in the theories of Joseph P. Farrell than Nasdaq, Lindsay Lohan, or American Idol, and my google search history can attest to that.

    Mount Athos is looking more appealing every day. I wonder if they’d let me hotwire their electrical grid with bedini motors.

  8. The mention of Marie Antoinette reminded me of something I had recently read about the French Revolution. In the Spring and Summer of 1789, an artificial shortage of grain was created by manipulations of the grain market.. One of the leading figures in this scheme was the Duc d’Orleans, the Grand Master of the Grand Orient Lodges These folks held up the food supply and blocked all reforms in the National Assembly to exacerbate the situation–and the people starved. The point is that the forces who contrived the French Revolution, in spite of their rhetoric, did not have the peoples interest in mind.

    I believe there are malevolent forces in play that will set up a counterfeit Apocalypse in order to stage a counterfeit second coming–and those waiting to be raptured will have a rude awakening. That is not say there won’t be an authentic apocalypse at some point–but we will know neither the day nor the hour. People have free will, and it is ultimately our choices which will determine our future. Unfortunately, many people are willing to give up their freedom and better future for immediate gratification. And this makes for easy manipulation.

    Unfortunately there is no place to escape… I recommend following the two greatest commandments, choosing wisely, and praying.

  9. I remember a retired professor friend of mine told me, when he had
    come home from one of his many trips abroad (where he noticed that
    you could get stuff in the foreign press that you can’t get here usually),
    that he felt like he had come to Michael Jackson Land because that
    was all they talked about.

  10. Father Krespi

    Marie Antoinette may have said: “let them eat cake.” But I say:

    “let them eat plutonium.”

    There is nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. Stay here and fight. The war is between the one percent and us– the ones who see through their charade. The playing field is the mind of the masses and they’ll go wherever the television directs them. Currently, they are happy to send their military and tax dollars to help the El Qaida backed rebels in Libya overthrow Gadaffi. East Asia has always been at war with West Asia.

    If we can get our numbers to five percent we can conquer the one percent. We did it in 1933. It just requires men and women of courage who won’t back down from the truth and openly speak out against the 800 pound gorilla throwing his fesces at them.

    We have also reached that tipping point where a large percentage of the population has had a personal experience of being ripped off by a Babylon bankster. The media can’t spin away this personal scar, no matter how many Ann Frank movies they show on PBS.

    1. the Father Crespi/Krespi was Hitler story has two problems.
      1. regarding this person calling himself Krespi, the real Fr. Crespi
      died some time ago.

      2. as far as I can make out, from looking at photos, the ears don’t
      match Hitler’s, and absent a workover on them, ears don’t change.

      the whole Krespi story depends on the word of one woman, who
      might indeed have been part of the post war Nazi survival effort,

      a. that gives her a reason to lie, that she was – since the story
      incl. Bormann – attempting to discredit stories of sightings of
      Bormann in his normal face, and the whole Mirabosol and
      related stories.

      b. she could have been viewing the creation of false faces on
      people who were to be doubles, and die, not the alteration
      of the originals. (and this would easily tweak if she was
      deliberately lying to the version that Hitler and Bormann and
      I think someone else, escaped with different looks.)

      c. the reports of odd attendance at Crespi’s funeral, and the
      peculiarities surrounding his ordination, IF TRUE, can be
      explained in terms of his being important to some post war
      plans.

    2. Whether it be Crespi or Krespi, I think the ‘Father’ has said it best. To paraphrase; Wake up and smell the pis* bucket in the corner of your cell!. Switching the channel from CNN to PBS, and so forth, wont solve anything.

      For someone who is as intellectually honest and balanced, such as Dr Farrel, I would recommend http://www.infowars.com. I listen to the radio show everyday to get the real scoop.

  11. I’m so glad you said it, someone needed to!!! The stuff they sow us and think we are interested in is an insult.

    1. what is more frightening, is that so many of us ARE interested in it
      otherwise how would these idiot stars make so much money? and
      the advertisers on these programs make plenty of money selling
      their wares?

  12. Another bread reference which might be even more fitting comes from Rome – “bread and circuses” – i.e. what you need to give the masses to keep them occupied so the elite can get on about their agenda for the empire.

    Our circuses now even have “weather monkeys”……….(nice phrase, Mel)

    The other thing I would suggest is that this is what the media Monster is feeding people, not necessarily what they really want. While many people do indeed parrot the memes they are fed by the media, I don’t think that really reflects their true concerns.

    Besides, the masses have never really been much involved in the progress of humankind – it has always been a small percentage of the people who move things forward. Fuller used to say that 1 percent of the population was responsible for the survival and advancement of the other 99 percent. It is easy to feel justification for an elite running things when so many people are either not capable of understanding, nor interested in, the big picture. Most people are cornered, wounded animals, sleepwalking and self-medicating their way through life.

    Of course, that is no excuse for not educating and involving them in their own future – it is simply an expedient method of propping up one’s own ego.

    I wish there was a nice, big tropical island to move to where one could live a healthy, natural life unencumbered by the threats of the modern world. Unfortunately, that luxury is no longer to be found. The Monster is global and pervasive.

    Another planet would be interesting, Risa perhaps…………

  13. A good country to move to???

    How about this…Stop the world, I wanna get off!

    Ya know one of my favorites for the brain-dead masses is when we have severe weather and the networks send someone out in the middle of a hurricane or a blizzard to stand there and scream how bad it all is, as the wind knocks him down the street. Man, now that’s entertainment, right? I have given these idiots the name “weather monkeys”. I wonder what weather monkeys make for their “performances”.

    I almost never watch network news. It’s a sad day when, if you want to catch truthful news, you have to resort to RT TV and the Drudge Report.

  14. Mary linderman

    Well I have thought the same thing on several occasions but there is no respite from the slack-jawed programers that inhabit mainstream media. The good stuff like yourself is mostly unknown and hidden. Most of us play a sort of Whack-a-mole game. Hiding our heads quickly after speaking out so as to not be whacked. Down here in Mole country there are no haters only “Knowers”. Hopefully knowers will increase until the only audience for mainstream media will be cardboard cut-outs and straw people that the powers that be have constructed for the circus media.

  15. I can’t recommend a country that would want anyone from the USA.
    The ‘Ugly American’ was required reading in my HS English class.
    George Green has been promoting south of the equator for years to avoid the predicted nuclear fallout and radiation of the Northern Hemisphere that was imminent and now is in process. Only Leuren Moret via Alfred Webre are sounding the alarm on this unfolding disaster. Where can one find ‘tincture of iodine?
