DRONES, TEXAS, STATES, AND TRENDS

In the wake of the Sandy Hook School shooting tragedy - whatever really happened, and there is a growing body of data to suggest the "official" version is as leaky as the Warren Report or the various official versions of 9/11  - the incident was seized upon by opportunists to ram through yet another attempt to disarm the population. The usual Dummycrooks whined and wrung hands about the dangers of guns and assault weapons and so on, and came forth with the usual incrementalist proposals, the end result of which is always the same: only the government is allowed to have guns.

The only problem is, it backfired, big time; people of all walks, demographics, and even political leaning or party affiliation, rushed to the stores to stock up on guns of all types. Then various states began to pass legislation and/or resolutions to prohibit and restrict the effect in their territory.

Similarly, we saw after the passage of Obromneyackcare an attempt - unsuccessful - to challenge the legislation via states bringing suit against it on constitutional grounds. Additionally, there has been a move by states to pass resolutions concerning lawful currency, and in many cases, to limit the effects of the recent NDAA or National Defense Authorization Act.

Now, Texas is considering legislation to limit the use of drones:

13 Texas "Anti Drone" Laws Would be Toughest in USA

Now, there's an interesting trend here, and it is this: whether one wishes to admit it or not, there is a growing gulf between the Federal government, which effectively has become nothing but an agent for the corporate financial power, and therefore internationalist and globalist in outlook, and the states, which, even in the case of extreme state nuttery like Massachusetts, New York, or the worst of the lot, California, there remain state vs federal tensions. The NDAA, which received support from both Republithugs and Dummycrooks, for example, has almost as much criticism from the Liberal ideological side as from the Conservative or Libertarian.

What this spells, I suspect, is a trend beneath the trend. At the surface level, the trend favors the Dummycrooks and the "blue" states. But beneath this, there is a deeper realignment taking place, one reflected in the growing efforts of states to fight increasing dictats from imperial Washington. Some may look on this with favor, and indeed, I am inclined to do so in some respects, but not all. What this trend really means is that if you thought left-right political gridlock was bad, wait until you experience groups of states vs. the federal government.

What the trend portends, if we're not careful, is that provincialism and regionalism, vs the centralization and financial debasement, that was the late western Roman empire, and we know how that ended... (and that's the point, it ended, for the old "way of doing things" simply could not keep up, and was inadequate). Then, as now, the decisions at the centralized center increasingly were ignorant of, or chose to ignore, the concerns of the "periphery,"he more so as the periphery was able to get "a better deal" from the barbarians than from the center. And the center paid the price as the periphery simply abandoned it.  Of course, that's a vast over-simplification of a great deal, but the basic lesson remains: you ignore those "peripheral" concerns to your peril.

In America it's called "states' rights" and a civil war was fought over the issue, and though some would argue that the issue was settled, others would say it was merely papered over, but never really went away. But even that isn't the point. Late imperial Rome's problem wasn't even really political, nor political in terms of the center and centralizing tendencies vs peripheral and de-centralizing ones. It was cultural. As the suburbican dioceses of Italy became increasingly populated by conquered populations imported as cheap slave labor, and eventually as this population took over the imperial bureaucracy, the original Roman nobility moved to the provinces, there to strike their deals with invading barbarians.  America is now similarly culturally divided, and the political debate is merely a shadow of that split. It isn't race, for in spite of the best efforts of media to portray it as such, it really isn't. Neither is it a "legal citizen" vs "illegal immigrant", for those illegals are here because of a passionate desire for liberty. It isn't a rich vs. poor issue either. You will find all classes, races, and demographics, on all sides. In the final analysis it is, really, two different cultures with vastly different perspectives and "ideologies", held together - for the moment - by a common but increasingly visibly corrupt government that really is but a collection of special interests.

See you on the flip side.

  1. And now for big problems with this proposed Texas law:

    Gee, so it turns out that the Texas anti-drone law is actually about protecting business interests, hiding illegal activities that would be easily visible from aircraft–manned or unmanned–and possibly easily visible well outside a property’s boundary lines.

    Sure there are huge problems with drones, but making say pollution air sampling illegal from a plane, only helps those who insist on polluting.

    So this Texas “law” is not about respecting liberty, it’s about well funded private interests thinking that they can do whatever they like, somehow this is very Koch Industries like.

    http://www.salon.com/2013/03/01/texas_takes_on_drones/

    How typical of government in Texas (and yes also the Federal government)–defend the corporations, in Texas under the false flag of liberty.

    Why is it that these liberty abuses (preventing anyone from taking pictures from a plane) so frequently get ignored by those who note and celebrate the possible creation of this Texas law?

  2. Joseph, To really get to the meat of your argument, it requires a bit of unpacking.

    I would think your Roman metaphor applies more aptly to the Fed and the global reserve than it does to the US. The U.S. is an ersatz empire. While those in control have dictated much over the 70 years, and used globalist institutions to further their hegemony, and violated every principle by which it was founded; when you look at the stability of this empire, it looks to me a lot less stable than Rome or Britain.

    The core power is wealth, and the U.S. doesn’t seem to have the momentum anymore. It’s just the muscleman for something else: money power.

    You specifically mentioned that corporations have captured Washington; that seems unequivocal. Even the patina of justification for what can perhaps best be described as a “Tyranocratic” regime is peeling away. The symbol of the U.S. ought to be changed from an eagle to an “open palm” or a bridge troll.

    Perhaps money power has told these power broker minions that they can have a luxury cabin on its globalist Titanic. Since they are “on board,” they don’t realize that the highest level has no loyalty to anyone, ever, at anytime. Just pure craven will.

    The problem of course is the vast sums of wealth that move through the political sewer in the former swampland on the Potomac; to its fascist friends. Wherever there exists a concentration of wealth, evil natures gather like horse flies to a blood meal. Nature, it seems, abhores concentrations past a certain point over time..

  3. Dr. Farrell,

    Your reference to circumstances perhaps being similar to those of the late Western Roman Empire parallels similar thoughts that I have developed for books I am writing. I intend to propose a causal mechanism for both, a poor man’s psychohistory if you will. May I impose upon you to briefly engage on this topic offline (email)? Kind regards, S.

    1. Sophia,

      If you ever get around to writing that book about psycho-history post the name of it on this web-site. I just might buy it? (psycho-history is just one of the aspects that attracts me to Farrell’s writings for I find any accurate recording of history is ‘psychological in nature’ when one considers all the fairy-tales we have been fed called an “Education?”

      I’m waiting for his “The Financial Vipers of Venice” book to come out. I’ll scoop that one fast now that I have my own brand new computer to work with (my own place too – overlooking the Boston Harbor/Skyline. What a relief after eight months of so-called community living, ugh!)

      I currently ordered these four books after reading six of Farrell’s books. I scanned them very quickly a few years back but realize I should study them a bit more closely for they relate to much of what Joe posts on his web-site. They are “The Unseen Hand, Forbidden Archaeology – the debate…, The Hidden History of the Human Race (updated), and of course a popular one around this site – The Seeds of Destruction.”

      Afterwards , I am going after a book ROBERT from this site suggested I read called “The Folly of Fools.” Plus, eventual get to an old, long time interest of mine, Depopulation and these two books – Merchants of Fear” and The War Against the Population and perhaps Michael Crichton’s ‘State of War’ novel.

      We never know how valuable book-suggestions can be. (of course many of them aren’t our cup-of-tea) but a few rare ones are and what an ‘uplift’ when we find them!

      Have a good MOON-day this Monday all you fine people.

      1. I left out something in this previous posts. The books I mentioned are probably quite elementary to some of you here. At that you may be correct BUT as a wannabe- make believe Alchemist I like the basic ‘elements’ of theories, hypotheses or just plain ideas more than their advanced developments. I find if I better understand these elements (refine them) then I have at least a small chance (long shot at best) at comprehending the very complex developments or theories that sprout up like mushrooms around here?

      2. Paul,

        Thanks for the book tips. I need to get “Seeds of Destruction.” Have read the Cremo “Forbidden” stuff, can’t remember if I’ve read “Hidden History.” You might try the Knight-Lomas books, especially “Civilization One.” The implications are somewhat astounding.

        I use Sophia in the sense of wisdom – I’m a gent. My books won’t address psycho-history per se. They argue that the symptoms and causes of the “Decline and Fall” as identified by Edward Gibbon are actually clinical identifiers of narcissism on a social scale. Christopher Lasch wrote a modern classic entitled “The Culture of Narcissism.” I’m making the link between these two magnificent works. If a hidden discipline of psychohistory does exist, I’ll be explaining in psychological terms the effect of those unknown equations.

        This all started with my horrific divorce in 2008. Every feminist within 100 miles lined up to help put the boots to me. I began investigating feminism, and immediately recognized narcissism. Then the entire puzzle fell into place. The books are being written for a popular, non-academic audience. Quite a story – I maintain two feminist judges committed serious criminal offences in my case.

        Like you, I quite enjoy Dr. Farrell’s books.

        Cheers,

        S.

        1. Sophia or whatever your name is,

          Pardon me for the indiscretion or assuming you lack a ‘penis’ as Bob Wilson would comically put it. (I guess that qualifies you as being good enough to be a priest in the Catholic Church?)

          Isn’t Christopher Lasch the fellow who wrote about the loss of Public Space or a true “Agora?” Also, I read his book (I think is by him) about the Myth of Progress.

          Your post about Narcissism (the feminine kind) immediately brings to mind a big Boat-Rocker or at least a Wave-Maker called Henry Makow and his strange Web-Site. He’s over top most of the time but sometimes he plants Gems or little pearls of wisdom between the lines! Or should I say, “His Ongoing Rants!” I believe some woman really got to him real good or at least scrapped his goat in a way he can never live it down! At least he’s (Makow that is) more honest than most of these politically-correct nit-wits who pretend they don’t have ‘Axes” or that they are not grinding them everyday on some sort of Hamlet’s Wheel? I like a good fight and it does seem to be in our Human Natures to watch blood being spilled even if it is of the Intellectual Kind.

          I’ll check out the reference you made of Knight-Lomas book ‘Civilization One’ but I got the feeling a lot of books are saying the same thing which each of us pick up at different times of our lives and development. I don’t know? Maybe I’m in for another surprise?

          Anyway, are Black Swans (Events or Books) really Black Swans? (gigantic earth movers??????)

          Thanks for getting back to me so quickly and one more thing. Stay away from MIRROR LIKE PONDS! ha, ha!

        2. Sophia or what ever your name is,

          I responded to this post of yours earlier but I got “MODERATED!” I guess it was too racy or gossipy.

          Anyway, I think I got your feeling about some forms of feminism you mentioned in your post? Try visiting a web-site by Henry Makow if you so wish and don’t already know about him. He’s very out-spoken but little pearls of wisdom keep popping up in-between some of his articles. He has much to say about shams and cultural warfare.

          He got excommunicated from the Jeff Rense web-site and I hear Farrell sometimes does business with Rense. (I hope that’s not the reason I got moderated?)

          Anyway, it really doesn’t matter.

          Thanks for getting back to me and one more thing Sophia(???) : > Stay away from MIRROR-LIKE PONDS! Ha, ha!

          1. You made me smile with the “mirror-like ponds” bit. Based on alternative writers like Dr. F., I treat the myth of Narcissus as if it were a metaphor for actual knowledge, and use it as part of my explanation of what narcissism is. I was married to a woman with expert-confirmed narcissistic personality features for 19 years, and I saw some things that allowed me to interpret existing theory in a slightly different manner. I’ll call it the classical interpretation, as I reference the myth. Good on you for the humour.

            My kids (and I) were the victims of fraudulent feminist child protection, which I both explain and prove in my book. However, by law I can’t be identified publicly in regard to my story because of this. Book pseudonym = “Scott Peter Douglas.” Real initials S.P.D.

            Dr. Farrell is 100% correct when he draws a parallel to the decaying Roman Empire. Hopefully I can explain why, and expose a rotten system in the process.

            I’ll check out Makow – thanks.

            Cheers,

            S.

          2. When somebody notices my ring and says/Your married. I reply/Yes, but happiness isn’t everything.
            Both you & Sophia have great reading lists. You might want to consider:
            Columbus and Other Cannibals: The Wetiko Disease of Exploitation, Imperialism and Terrorism by Jack D. Forbes, Seven Stories Press, Nov 4, 2008.
            For instance, religion is at the core of many topics here, as it was an instrument used by authoritarian rule; and of course, the Gods being spoken of were, no doubt, alien in nature. So Forbes writes something to the effect that by the time a religion has a name & structure, not to mention a fixed creed, it is probably no longer a religion at all. To say,
            …that for “us”, truly, there are no “surroundings”. I am a point of awareness, a circle of consciouness, in the midst of a series of circles.
            When he isin’t going deep, he’s grinding his ax. Althoght I don’t have it now, his “superchicken” analogy of organization is priceless. Another concept, discussed here at length, is civilization/ What the wetiko means by “civilization” is something terrible indeed: a civilization is a society in which there are so many evil or violent or dishonest people that the police, soldiers, & other armed forces of control must almost equal the total population in numbers.

    2. G’day Sophia,
      It might also be valuable for your work to look at the fall of the Roman Republic. Though many of the “Pax Americana’s” circumstances today are similar to the fall of the western Roman Empire, the politics and foreign policies more closely resemble the end of the Republic.
      The Republic was expanding and wasn’t shy to impose its values on foreign people via invasion (sound familiar?). The Republic was run by an oligarchy of the wealthiest families who more often than not occupied the consulship (also sound familiar?).
      So the question is that does America’s situation more closely resemble the fall of the empire or the fall of the republic? Should America reach that fall will it emerge stronger as the republic did to become what we call the empire or shall America go with a whimper like the Empire in 476AD. Will the last American President be an Augustus or a Romulus Augustulus?

      1. Legio, You raise an excellent question. To be honest, my understanding of the history is quite modest at this point, and certainly requires additional research before I write Book Two of my current initiative. I have been considering this from the narcissism angle, of which I am quite confident. I am inclined to equate the current trend in Anglo-American countries for the executive to dominate the legislative as being analogous to Caesar Augustus v. the Senate, so I would suggest death of the Republic, particularly in the US. Regardless, if I am correct in my arguments – I wouldn’t be writing two books unless I had some degree of confidence -, we’re in the same social process of narcissistic decay.

        I do hope I am wrong, as my line of thought suggests we’re heading towards a 2nd Dark Ages. I’d rather we didn’t.

        1. Sophie, I had never heard the term “narcissistic decay”, but it is so perfect for what is wrong with the west, at least, right now. Unfortunately we have been programmed to be like this. Young people are confronted with beautiful/handsome narcissists constantly on the screen, in magazines etc and far too many young people have been programmed well. It has concerned me for a long time.

          My very best wishes for success with your books.

          1. Daphne,

            Thank you for your kind words of support. You are astute to have recognized the progressive degeneration of the elements of civil society. It seems to be something that people who hold to traditional values intuitively understand, even if they can’t put a name to it. If we liken civilization to an organism, then narcissistic decay can be likened to the spread of cancer. How people believe they should behave, consciously and unconsciously, and thus do behave, is our social DNA. Narcissism corrupts this, and in a manner that has built-defences against correction.

            Disney’s animated movie “Brave” can viewed along these lines. Since I’m not a member, I don’t know if Dr. F has discussed the Disney flop “The Black Hole” as a metaphor for his Nazi International / Bell theme. Regardless, if we postulate that Disney engages in social messaging / memetics / metaphoric disclosure, “Brave” can be considered Disney’s attempt to counter the effects of radical / ideological feminism. The movie is thus a sort of social chemotherapy. I explain the feminism-narcissism angle in my first book when it eventually comes out later this year.

            Cheers,

            S.

          2. Daphne,

            I’d be honoured to. So that I don’t abuse Dr. Farrell’s hospitality here at his blog, perhaps you could send me an email at the3rdletterbooksgmail.com.

            Kind regards,

            S.

  4. Wait until a drone collides with a commercial jetliner. They will have to cover it up and blame it on an alien attack if they want to save their drone agenda.

    Hopefully these initiatives that fly in the face of the commands of the central government are a growing trend and not just the death pangs of the last few citizens who have not succumbed yet to fluoride, drugs, tv, and the numerous other forms of mind control.

    One thing I do know, money trumps all, including attempts to centralize power. If there is an agenda 21, it is not working in my rural community where the big real estate developer holds sway and continues his projects with the help of lots of money from Asia. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say he is paving the way for a future Chinese leisure zone. The periphery abandoning the center and looking for better deals with the “barbarians?”

  5. The cat is already out of the bag mini drones done they are available as remote control helicopters, airplanes. Mini digital camera exist all it takes is little tickering to put it all together and you have your own spy drone. What to have your own killer drone you might have to wait but not for long. But to get back to the Texas story I agree with that state government other states should consider their own anti-drone laws.

      1. When asked by the press when he had been released from the mental hospital, Pound replied: “I never was. When I left the hospital I was still in America, and all America is an insane asylum.”

        1. I think Ezra Pound was compartmentalizing-

          let’s take it a step farther and include the entire planet- as John Lennon stated: “the more real you get the more unreal the world gets”- the inmates have been running the asylum for quite some time now and is just my own personal cheap opinion but I think the US is just one of many wards, although it may be the most extensive- but my gut feeling tells me you know this already-

          stay well Frankie- regards-

          Larry

  6. Hard to take seriously anyone who makes preposterous claims about plans to ban all guns like:

    “The usual Dummycrooks whined and wrung hands about the dangers of guns and assault weapons and so on, and came forth with the usual incrementalist proposals, the end result of which is always the same: only the government is allowed to have guns.”

    JPF, you shoot your “respectability” in the foot writing things like that, sort of the same about what you “know” are “god given rights”.

    Re: Newton Connecticut, sorry but there aren’t serious contradictions in the official story of who did the shooting, and how. This isn’t like the Mauser found in Texas that day in 1963.

    1. Yaj!?! Do you ever have anything nice to say? All the while I’ve been reading Your posts, I can’t recall anything positive or constructive coming from your end.

      Must suck to live with you. To each his own, I guess.

        1. I’m being plenty nice by not saying what I think of posting this ill conceived tea party John Birch Society foolishness. (I can read Glenn Beck too.)

          “diktat” really.

          On no there’s an income tax, well propose a way of paying for things that you use like highways and the internet with something other than an income tax.

      1. cali kush:

        More than once, I’ve nicely, if directly, said in these comments: Stop obsessing over gold, it’s very likely that various parties no how to make it in quantity.from things like copper.

        Rarely does someone say: What does that mean, instead commenters attempt to shout me down.

        Once someone posted links to very interesting modern Italian alchemical work on a simple method for turning mercury into gold.

        1. Yaj the Amusing,

          “Stop obsessing over gold,”

          That’s the pot calling the kettle black! You are the one obsessed with gold. That and defending Israel are the only thing you ever comment about (and I suspect the latter is done for pay) . The rabbis really did a number on you. The minute after they got giddy chewing the immortal cells of your foreskin they began filling your head with this unhealthy gold obsession and now I’m afraid you are paying the price. You are severely brainwashed my friend. You got gold on the brain 24/7. It really is the curse of your tribe and you guys have made it the curse of the human race.

          I can picture you now, still in your pajamas, standing in front of the little laboratory you set up in your bedroom in your parents’ house, alongside your star wars action figures, trying to make alchemical gold while all the time driven by a burning desire to make it rich and get even with all those kids who used to laugh at you at hebrew school because of your pimples and bad breath and because you once announced to the class how you loved to sit in your closet and smell your own gas. Possibly you even dream of finally getting a date with Mitzy Cohen, the yenta with the big boobs who once called you “repulsive. ”

          I can picture you every once and a while taking a break from your “experiments” to berate your doting mother because she didn’t cut the crust off your grilled cheese sandwiches they way you like it and then screaming at her when she suggests that you get outside at least once this month for some fresh air telling her that you are a great alchemist and she is stifling your genius. Occasionally you take time out to respond sloppily to anti-zionist comments under the blogs you are assigned to monitor. But that is a great chore for you and you are easily distracted from this by your gold obsession and pornography. For exercise I imagine you standing in front of a mirror practicing karate you learned on youtube and fantasizing about one day being promoted from an annoying zionist internet troll to a full fledge mossad agent with a license to kill. A real Shlomo Bondstein! Killing entire families because the father dared criticize Israel while lecturing at a college or serving as a honey trap at a skinhead keg party in order to find out who the ring leader is only to discover the ring leader is also a mossad agent! Oh vey!

          You’re really too much, Yaj.

          1. Wow! Wonderful stuff. As one of those who have been corrected incorrectly, I thank you. Definitely my laugh for the day.

          2. @DaphneO–

            So D, you like FC, wish to remain ignorant of Cold Fusion, macro-biotics, ormus, various over-unity systems, the work of people like Louis Kervan, John Bedini, Judy Wood, big problems in the periodic chart of elements, etc.

            You realize that FC used to be a bankster of some type and is angry that his/her powers were subverted. And FC just can’t stand the idea of open systems (how very like a bankster). Nor, given FC’s reference to Star Wars above, does FC appear to have read any books by Joseph Farrell.

            In short what you’ve celebrated is not a correction; it’s an over long ill informed rant, by someone who can’t stand to have his or her world view challenged. That’s your me-too-ism on display nicely.

            If you don’t think low energy transmutations are possible that’s fine, that’s what you’ve been taught, but it’s very unlikely that you’d stick with that claim if you’d done any reading on the subject, including Farrell’s books, unless you either have blind acceptance of authority issues or are heavily invested in gold or other “precious metals”, and can’t stand the idea of those metals being actually cheap.

            @FC:

            You fit the cliche of the man on ham radio, or a blog ranting about what the “jews” have done to him, it’s simpler to blame someone else rather than the limitations of your authoritarian world view, one where anyone who disagrees with you is subject to shouting and poor attempts at bullying by you.

            I’m kinda or proud on the toys I own, of course those toys would include tables saws, tube amps, multimeters, cameras, orgone generators, a microscope, many socket wrenches, and advanced 3D CAD software, no action figures though. And still no oscilloscope.

          3. Yaj the Awe-Inspiring,

            “I’m kinda or proud on the toys I own, of course those toys would include tables saws,”

            Wow! You have a table saw? That’s impressive. And I bet you let all the women know that at jewish single’s night. The macho jewish guy with power tools would seem like a clever shtick. Good luck with that.

            As far as claiming I never have read Dr. Farrell’s books, where do you think I got that tidbit about the immortal cells in the foreskin (which your tribe savors)? It came out of “Transhumanism.”

            I was also trying to figure out why you bring up this “bullying” subject so frequently and why is the anti-bullying message so prevalent in our culture currently, particularly in the schools, and then it struck me that this is your tribe’s great defense. Isn’t that really what the whole holocaust dogma is all about? It creates a victim status and anyone who then picks on the victim becomes a bully and bullies of course are unacceptable, even if they are routing out insidious people. “Bully” is just another designation like “conspiracy theorist.” Label someone a bully and then the witless brain dead goyim will instantly get riled up and want to attack them, if the television so commands. And how convenient a weapon the bully label is for a school aged talmudist who may strut around the school contemptuous of all those who have not been Chosen by Yahweh and don’t carry a superior, unique DNA sequence as well. When a Gentile classmate finally becomes fed up with this obnoxious behavior, he can instantly be labeled a bully and expelled from school. Like the phrase “anti-semite” a bully will designate anyone a talmudist does not like.

            My favorite bullies would be the Vikings who, after spending the winter at sea, returned to their villages to discover foreign merchants and bullion brokers along with Christian missionaries had moved in and had begun to undermine the social order while the men were away. Overwhelmed by their “bullying instincts” the Norse men cleaved these dangerous intruders heads from their bodies with battle axes and clubs. Surely you can find no fault in this behavior in light of what we know now? It seems like a healthy instinct.

            I just wonder if the Christian missionaries and bullion brokers came hand in hand by design? The bullion brokers could whisper and give bribes of gold to the missionaries who in turn convinced the native women with the help of that beautiful Jesus that their husbands and sons were deplorable bullies and they must change. Eventually the women won out and the missionaries and the dishonest Mediterranean merchants were allowed to stay. And the rest is history.

      2. without stating any names I think you are just one of many who have realized there are a few contributors to this website who think they’re the world’s foremost informed entities about everything-

        from my own experience, even if one replies with a partial agreement to their postings, one is confronted with disdain (very often “passive aggressiveness”) or complete dismissal-

        respect begets respect- so after “once bitten/twice shy” I simply ignore their original postings let alone their responses to anyone else’s postings-

        there are too many wonderful contributors to this website who respectfully and humbly provide so many wonderful insights (let alone Dr. Farrell’s input!- understatement!) so I ignore shills-

        I hope I get at lot of “hate mail” for this posting- will be dealt with accordingly: ignored

        please stay well, cali- regards-

        Larry in Germany

        1. “… the most informed entities about everything-”

          Dear LSM,

          You mean to tell me I “Don’t KNOW it all?”

          What a big disappointment and letdown.

          Now, I am beginning to believe I might not be able to KNOW anything what’s so ever. If I finally arrive at that conclusion then I will ask the true know-it-alls how I came about realizing or knowing HOW I cant know anything!

          One gets some good ‘tips” on this web site plus a lot of ‘heads ups” about phony propaganda that just might capture our interest and side-tract or distract us from the REAL PROPAGANDA that we get hooked on!

          1. “You mean to tell me I “Don’t KNOW it all?””-

            no. not at all- we’re all experts- we all know the invisible man in the sky is watching out for us so there are obviously no mafias, deceit, lies, cabals, etc. influencing us…

            I assume your response was satire- if not humanity is in deep trouble

        1. As you, Yaj, are totally wrong about what I believe and don’t believe. I am at this site because I knew enough of all the subjects you mentioned to want to learn more. And I’ve learned a lot… but from JF rather than yourself.

          When I mentioned you were incorrect that was another matter altogether which I won’t discuss again here.

  7. What are the two distinct American cultures in your opinion? I find it almost impossible to extract the true character of the American citizen since both left or right, educated and not, all possess varying delusions that obscure their true opinions. What a Democrat conceives of as a Republican — and vice versa — is only a myth.

    What attracts me to your writing, and your unorthodox thought, is its revisionist nature that seeks to reveal what is occulted, including the false paradigms that rule us.

    But your occasional partisanship surprises me. After listening to several of your older interviews I was shocked to hear you speak with passion about how you despised Democrats. You qualified the statement by stating you loathe both parties, but you emphatically characterized yourself as conservative, and then cited that day’s Bill O’Reilly episode.

    I am no lover of Democrats, but it was as if you were stacking the deck against the party when you mentioned it was they who sanctioned “slavery”, gave us the “income tax” and so forth. One would have gathered from this interview on the Byte Show that Republicans were rather gentle libertarian populists over the American Century, instead of the bloodthirsty reactionaries that sponsored Gladio and other countless evils. The party of James Angleton.

    Now I don’t think you paint Americans with such a large brush, and your point was essentially a rhetorical one, but I suppose I bring it up here because it seems that our background conditioning will still often color our disposition, no matter how cosmopolitan we become. So when we are asked to choose the less evil, we call upon an instinctual taste, our most ancient, particularly if you are religious.

    But back to your main point. I am not certain there are two cultures in THAT classical sense. There is a widening gap between the awake and the dormant, I suppose. But your characterization of California as the “worst” only betrays your indulgence in those older paradigms that do not serve the current battlefield.

    I agree rather with your other conclusion that there is a growing parity between populist sentiment and a co-opted federal government. We only disagree that the populist strain will be aggravated by conservative-liberal conflict. Not at all, because all those wedge issues that famously divide them are false abstractions, a magician’s trick to hide the real trick: that of a central banking criminal cartel destroying our culture and economy.

    It is my belief that we would all be less polarized if we could get our country back.

    1. Hi Solfeggio (your name sounds so musical- I like that)

      “It is my belief that we would all be less polarized if we could get our country back”- it’s just my belief but the only way to get our country back is to be less polarized/divded to begin with

      1. This will only happen if the people begin to serve higher ideals rather than themselves, special interests & political parties. It’s time to be good Americans rather than either good democrats or republicans. The so-called elected “leadership” is drunk on privilege & perks, so there will have to be some pretty heavy slugging for the American rennaisaunce. Things have already been degraded, but could easily become worse.

        1. I agree with you totally- but it is only until the “sheeple” wake up and realize/acknowledge that both political parties are financed/manipulated by the same cabal will any positive “change we believe in” occur- until then it will be a continued “chains we can believe in”-

          “Things… could easily become worse”- already happening-

          stay well, Elm- regards-

          Larry
