“Conspiracy Theory” – Let’s talk about it

Aliens have Elvis! Bigfoot ate my Schnauzer! Batboy dating Jennifer Aniston!

These are the types of non-sense, clearly fictitious headlines that get plastered on new rags at your local super market. Well, perhaps not so much as when I was growing up. Current fascinations seem to center around mind rotting, reality programming, but you get the point. These stories are pure sensationalism.

Now, a group of people banding together in a dark, smoke filled room, pulling on beards, twisting long mustaches, bent over a table top map of the world and belting out the occasional , Dr. Evil style “bwa ha, bwa ha ha…. bwa ha ha ha” as they plan the ultimate destruction of, well… everything. Surely not. These are stories that people in tin-foil hats tell each other, right? Don’t be a nut job! Oh, you’re one of “THEM”! “Conspiracies”!!! Poppycock!, Stuff and non-sense, old man! Good god, you’re depressing, why do you think about stuff like this!?!? You know none of this is real, right?

So, you don’t believe in Conspiracies? Okay, I guess you don’t believe in Football either. What does football have to do with conspiracies? It’s how the game is played. A group gets together, in a huddle (the word itself has the same origin as the word “hide”) to discuss a secret plan that will move their agenda forward at the cost of their opponent. Yep, that’s it. That’s all a “Conspiracy” is. It is how business is handled in most cases. It’s no more vaporous, spooky or scoff-able  than that. So, get over it.

Why is it that the concept of a group of people making a plan in secret to move their agenda forward at the cost of others is such a point of contention, mockery and downright anger to some people? Well, a lot of people cannot accept that the world they’ve been sold isn’t exactly what’s really happening. However, there are other issues to consider, such as cointelpro, misleading smokes screens or disinformation.

Not all that long ago, the mention of somethings as “insane” as, say,  area 51, would have labeled you a laughing stock. “Oh, right, and we didn’t go to the moon, and Lee Harvey didn’t shoot Kennedy…” You see how instantly anything outside of the accepted norm is immediately lumped into an all encompassing pool of immediate dismissal. That is, until technology advanced to the point that you could no longer hide a secret testing facility in the desert. Then it was “well, there’s no such thing as area 51… I mean, unless you talk to some people that work there. They sometimes call it that, but that’s not what it is, it’s… it’s… oh, you have pictures… oh, well then… yes. But of course EVERYONE knew that!”. It is denied until the last possible moment, then when all the lies collapse, the know-it-alls will flip 180 degrees and say they knew it all along and chide you for making such a big deal out of a “known issue”.

What typically happens when people are trying to hide something in plain sight or obfuscate the truth is;

A) Denial of accusation and dismisall of accuser (“Honey, I was not at the bar and you’re a nut job for saying it”). B) Pleading guilty to a lesser charge (“I only stopped by to say hi to a friend and I left right away”). C) Distraction and diversion (“what do you mean I was at the bar?.. good god, Godzilla is outside the window!!) and D) Inflating the accusation to an absurd level (“Oh right Honey, I got smashed at the bar, married a hedge hog and killed a hooker. What’s wrong with you?”). Or, person A: “I believe there is a secret base in the desert”. Person B: “Oh, right, and it’s FULL of aliens that secretly run the world”.

Next is the issue of how our language is used. Terms like “Conspiracy nut”, “birther” or “tea bagger” are all intended to diminish and mock the point of view of a person before you even hear it. Notice how each of the terms has a built in condemnation or invalidation in the way they’re presented. A great description of what a Conspiracy “Theory” (because that’s how they’re always mentioned, as if precluding that they already couldn’t possible be true) is found in the opening of In Plane Sight (below). Now, before anyone gets their pants in a twist, has their blood pressure sky rocket or rolls their eyes; we NOT going to talk about 9/11 here. If you don’t want to watch the first few minutes, I’ll paraphrase here:

If I buy a lottery ticket, in “theory” I could win the lottery. This will remain only a theory, until I actually buy a ticket. At this point, it is no longer a theory, but a possibility. The more I buy, the better my chances are. If someone says something is possible “in theory”, it means just that. But the minute there is any piece of evidence that their idea MIGHT be true, it is no longer theory, it is now a possibility. And the more evidence you find to support your idea, the more possible, and then the more plausible, this theory becomes.

There, that’s it. No scary monsters, no space babies, no maniacal laughter. No reason to mock, admonish or ridicule. Just an explanation of what a Conspiracy Theory is; the idea that a group of people have a plan. Preposterous, I know….

Types Of Government – a video

We have (for the most part) lost sight of how this country is supposed to function, and the great opportunities our predecessors have fought and died for. The idea of this America is truly a great one. The greatest idea for a government that has ever existed. Truthfully, we now live in what is called an Oligarchy. Watch this and you’ll see what we’re talking about…

A Democratic Republic means that there are elected citizens that are to speak and vote on behalf of the the people they represent and government is limited. Democracy, in it’s simplest sense, is mob rule. An oligarchy is what we have now. We think have a choice in our officials, but the truly powerful are “selected”, not elected.

False Flag operations – explained

A False Flag operation is covert / secret act designed to deceive the public into thinking that actions are being carried out by other entities. The name comes from the ancient (usually naval) practice of flying the flag of another country on your ship.Typically this is done to help you achieve a military objective that you need to blame on the people you want to go to war with.

How to tell if something is a legitimate attack vs. a False Flag operation can sometimes be tricky, but if you’re paying attention, they’re not usually hard to spot. Often, the story you hear leading up to this “attack” is muddled, confused or (usually a dead giveaway) wrapped in patriotic / nationalist rhetoric that just says; “They” did something very bad / are a very real threat to “Us” (i.e. our freedoms, liberty, national interests, international security, etc). In recent years however, there has been a new tier added to these justifications; Some of “them” are hurting others of “them”, and it’s our job to step in and stop it in the name of very good, noble ideals that we hold of value.

There are many reasons that this last incarnation is becoming so widespread. One old, very wise, military mantra is; If you want (or need) to attack someone, do it. A better option is to get someone else to do it for you. Better still, create a conflict within your enemy, and get them to destroy themselves. This last part is happening in our country at an alarming rate right now. Hence my decision to start these writings. I first became aware of these ideas and practices in the early 90’s while listening to the lectures of Dave Emory.

A False Flag operation is different from other popular ways to start a war or hostile takeover. Another very popular method is the “Bully / Punch in the Nose” practice of goading an adversary into attacking you (or equally as popular; make their way of life so difficult that they have no choice but to act), standing back and letting it happen, then launching the attack you had planned all along. As always, there are grey areas, where you can find varying amounts of both, but the point that is being pursued is to make it appear to the public that your reactions, the very war you wanted to start, were in self-defense, unavoidable and completely justifiable.

Some famous / infamous (now declassified, provable or commonly accepted) instances of False Flag operations are:

The Manchurian Incident (1931) – Japanese soldiers place explosives on a railroad track owned by Japan’s South Manchuria Railway near Mukden (now Shenyang). Even though the explosion didn’t destroy the tracks (and a train passed by only minutes later) the Imperial army accused Manchurian rebels and launched the full-scale  attack they’d been planning. This ploy was so transparent that Japan was internationally humiliated and withdrew from the League of Nations (more on them in later blogs).

The Reichstag   (1933) – A week before a very important election that could have placed Hitler in power, the Reichstag / German parliament building was set on fire (while still occasionally contested) and blamed on the actions of a mentally challenged Russian man,  Marinus van der Lubbe. While Marinus was certainly disturbed, there are many reports that he was “coaxed” into, and even aided in, commiting the act by Hitler’s own supporters. Let’s call this one a draw. We shouldn’t, but there are SO many more to talk about….

Gleiwitz incident (1939) – On August 31, 1939, operatives (often called provocateurs)  pretended to be Polish terrorists and raided the Gleiwitz radio station near the German/Poland border. Hitler used this as an excuse to invade Poland, which he did the very next day. And on that day, WWII began.

Nero’s Fiddle – Well, actually it was a Lyre he was playing, but… There are as many accounts of Nero trying to save Rome as there are of him playing his “fiddle” while it burned. However, the accounts that say that he did actually start / order the fires also indicate that he did so to implicate and blame the Christians. He (might have, just maybe) needed a reason to blame them for… something, in order to vilify and attack them and seem justified in doing so.

Gulf Of Tonkin – The accounts of 2 (or 4, or 9…) North Vietnamese war ships  attacking 2 US patrol boats is now declassified and widely accepted to have been completely fabricated in order to escalate the war.  After all, the North Vietnamese has cracked many of the US codes and were calling in airstrikes by US forces on our own US soldiers. That looks bad. Something must be done, right? We can’t just sit around and wait…

Spanish / American War (1898) – Acting Navy secretary Teddy Roosevelt Blows up the USS Maine. The USS Maine is ordered (secretly, by Roosevelt) to Havana Harbor (Cuba) where, 3 weeks later, it is mysteriously destroyed. Spain is falsely accused of blowing up the USS Maine in order to get the American people to support a conflict. The US government has long since admitted that Spain was falsely accoused and now says that the explosiong that killed the 26

Operation Northwoods (1962) – When the proposal for Operation Northwoods (which called for the US to attack its only troops and blame it on Cuba) was presented to President Kennedy he rejected it immediately. Still, the fact that the joint chiefs had even committed such an atrocious idea to paper should shed great light on what people with unchecked amounts of power will do to get what they want.

The list goes on and on… False Flag operations have been responsible for more world wide changes in policy and have started more wars than most people can imagine.

Problem / Reaction / Solution – explained

The phrase “problem – reaction – solution” is a very import one. It is the explanation of a large percentage of what happens in the world you live in, and can help to understand why so many things in our world seem confusing, yet feel perfectly correct and / or justified. A simple example could look like this:

A person sells surveillance systems and goes door to door hawking their wares at a certain price. They are rejected out of hand as there hasn’t been a need for heightened security to date. This person then then hires a group, to vandalize the neighborhood, but show no connection to X.  After waiting for the situation to get so bad that the residents are not only willing, but demanding that “something be done”, the person returns (possibly under a new name, possible not) offering to provide increased security, and maybe even at a price much greater than the original.

Other, purely hypothetical, examples of this could include: I want to go to war with that person over there. I will frame him for a crime against “the people” (likely done at my own hand) and attack him as an enemy of all the is good, just and true. The people will not only support an idea they naturally resist (war) but demand it, as there has been an affront to their egos, beliefs and sense of security.

Or, I’m a megalomaniac, control freak whose sole purpose in life is to amass as much dominance over those around me as I can. I exacerbate a delicate situation with an “enemy” (or make one up out of thin air – see Wag The Dog) that instils a sense of mistrust among the common people and fear of the unknown. “Something” must be done by “someone”, the people cry. I will now “protect” the common man, but… You just don’t know who to trust anymore, do you? I just need to make sure everyone is registered, accountable, tracked, guided… dumbed down, brain washed and proud to be surrendering their inalienable rights and liberties to the very person that created the problem. But that, of course, would be crazy… right? But it happens all the time. It’s happening in this country, right now.

Know your rights. Protect your privacy. Defend your liberty. Fight for your freedom. Don’t take anything for granted. Don’t trust anyone you don’t know. Always do your research. No, it’s not fun. Yes, you’re busy. No, it’s not pretty. But it’s worth more than you can imagine and you do not want to realize that after it’s too late.

An introduction to the esoteric and occult

This blog will, hopefully, serve as a jumping off (or jumping in) point for an explanation and exploration of the world that has been pulled over your eyes…

First, let’s start with a couple basic ground rules:

1) Nothing I say here will be my personal opinion, prophesy or clairvoyance. I will site news sources, give back up links and research and each reader is thoroughly encouraged to poke holes, investigate, interpret and (most importantly) think for themselves. Leading me to…

2) If you wish to comment, please do. This is very much encouraged. However, if the sole basis of your “argument”, the kernel of your contradiction is “nuh-uh”, “oh, you’re one of those” or “why are you so focused on the negative?”, please, please, shut the hell up. If you’ve got evidence that is contradictory to something posted here, let’s see it. I always (as should we all) welcome any chance to learn, even if I’m wrong.

3) Anything rude, disrespectful, racists, sexists… etc, will be immediately deleted. There’s already enough hate in the world. We don’t need anymore.

So, let’s get on to the first topic. “‘Esoteric and occult’ you say? You must be a loon. I don’t know what the first one means, but ‘occult’ means you worship the devil”. Here are some definitions you should be familiar with:

esoteric – adjective – intended for or likely to be understood by only a small number of people with a specialized knowledge or interest

occult  – noun –  beyond the range of ordinary knowledge or experience; mysterious. communicated only to the initiated; esoteric: the typically occult language of the time.

Esoteric refers to things or ideas that, frankly, you’re not meant to know. There’s a lot of that in the world, far more than most people can imagine. We’ll talk about that a lot here. Occult does not, in any definition, refer to things “satanic”. However, the word has been given that association, for a very good reason: You’re supposed to be afraid. Very afraid. People are far easier to control when they are afraid, and control is what it’s all about.

This will have to do for now. I’ll post more tomorrow…
