The Spying Game

Watch what you say in the UK. This article, just one of many popping up around Europe and the US, shows that, not only is London the town with the most surveillance cameras per capita in the world (unless you count Chicago, where they tie in more privately owned CCTV sources, but who’s counting), but now anything you say or text is going to be recorded, traced, tracked and logged as well. London has over 12,000 CCTV cameras, costing approximately $380 million, yet 80% of their crimes go unsolved. Clearly, money well spent.

Spying on civilians happens here in the good ‘ol US of A too. Los Angelinos are up in arms about being tracked on their cell phones without warrant or notification, but who doesn’t love the LAPD, right? The Washington Post says that this is happening all over the country. But don’t disappear, our boys in blue won’t be alone at the donut shop while on brake from tracking you down, their comrades from the DHS will be out in force too. Yes, those same liberty loving patriots that just ordered 450 million rounds of hollow point ammunition and a boatload of mobile,  bullet proof security booths will be out en masse too. [BTW – hollow point ammunition isn’t meant to “stop or deter”, they are made to blow people’s heads and limbs off, and nothing else]. The DHS also announced that it plans to increase the number of unannounced check points that TSA’s VPER teams will be manning at freeways, sporting events and shopping malls near you. Yes, the TSA is not just for airports anymore. The “T” is for transit, or travel. Driving is traveling. Heck, walking is traveling. You should have to pass security to walk your dog, right? Don’t worry, you don’t have anything to hide… DO YOU? We just need your papers, please. Madam, papers please!!!

And if you think you’re “off the grid” because you live in a beautiful, quaint little hamlet somewhere, relax, I’m sure the recently launched, FBI secret spy satellite would never be looking for domestic terrorists. No. Not where you are, it’s too remote. You, your family and your privacy are all safe and sound. That is, unless you fit any of the descriptions on the FBI’s ridiculous new lists of evil-doer activities to look out for; like if you wear blue jeans, or pay with cash, or talk about the constitution “too much”. Seriously, follow that last link and click on some of the lists of things you’re supposed to be very, very aware of and report. The person sitting next to you, right now, is probably a terrorist. Actually, you probably are too. You really should turn yourself in.

Had enough of this nonsense? Want to just bail out and go live somewhere else? Well, just make sure your taxes are paid.  That’s right, California’s own freedom fighting sweetheart, Barbara Boxer has introduced a bill that says you may not leave the US if you haven’t paid your taxes, and it’s making progress. The content of SB-1813 MAP 21 contains sections which say that unless you are up to date with paying the IRS (the privately run collection agency for the privately run-for profit, criminal Federal Reserve, neither being any part of the US government) you cannot leave the United States. Why don’t we all drop her a line and tell her how thankful we are that she’s here to protect us. Of course, in true blue, bloated government style, this comes to us as part of a “highway safety” bill. Makes perfect sense to me.

MAP 21 stands for “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act”. Beyond the redundancy of that title, I can assure you it is in no way related to the United Nations “map” for their Agenda “21” plans, and any similarity is purely and completely a coincidence. Right… You might want to do your own image search and take a look at the legend on that map. This MAP is from a UN plan revealed about 1998, and it outlines how the US population will be restricted, reduced and re-allocated  in an attempt to live more harmoniously with nature and embrace Biodiversity.  But that leads to another topic…


Goldman Sachs “doing god’s work”… ripping you off (the good news)

The king is dead, long live the king….Greg Smith, you have committed career suicide and you’ll never work in your chosen field of endeavor again. May whatever god you believe in, bless you and yours on your new journey. You’re a good man.

I’ve often been accused (occasionally, rightly so) of being a bit of a soothsayer, prognosticator of doom or general downer and not one to invite to parties. I can live with that… Sorry to be all Paul Revere about this, but don’t kill the messenger. Guess what? Good things AND bad things happen, bad people sometimes win, life can be unfair. Quit crying, finger pointing and burying your head in the sand (or your ass). Accept the world for what it is. Life is hard, wear a cup, and get back in the game. Sometimes, the devil vomits on your cheese platter. But…. BUT!.. sometimes people do the right thing. Sometimes, we see what’s worth saving here. Enter Greg Smith; FORMER Goldman Sachs employee and full time hero, king badass, banker-bitch-slappin pimp. Okay, I don’t know him at all, but I do like what he did.

Upon exiting his employ at GS, “GS” give the biggest middle finger in recent memory to his former masters. In Mr. Smith’s resignation letter, he skewered his former employer for nurturing and operating in an “environment now is as toxic and destructive as I have ever seen it”. Mr. Smith has simply had enough. And, the New York Times knew it was coming, had done there research on the author and ran with the letter anyway. This research and subsequent support of an idea is called “vetting”. That means “we studied, researched and have concluded that these claims are accurate and true”.

Now, the left-leaning (as if that moniker actually matters) NYT  backing a story like this is not a huge surprise. The left vs. right struggle is a distraction, nothing more. But, let’s remember that the same banking interests control the left and the right. Several people are taking a big risk here, and risk is a good thing. Defiance of this kind is either a) a PR stunt  / smokescreen or b) an actual, heartfelt need to do the right thing. I’m going with option b, this time.

We can, at least for now, afford ourselves the luxury of thinking that some people do have a soul, even in banking executives. If I’m wrong for going out on this limb, I’ll take the bruises, dust off and learn. But I don’t think so. I think this guy is actually a good guy.

Not everyone is evil. Many good ideas get usurped (climate change, hybrid cars, etc), but that doesn’t mean that we stop trying. It just means we don’t let go of the reigns. If you’ve got a great idea, and all of the sudden, there’s a lot of support for it and money coming in beyond expectations…. trace the money… it probably goes back to Goldman Sachs… and they, don’t like you…


“Waking Up From The Matrix” – Why call it that?

Knock knock Neo…

You’ve undoubtedly seen the movie (at least the first one). These big machines run the world and people are kept as batteries, or something, and Keanu Reeves is this hot, sort of trans-dimensional super hero, or something… right? Anyway, that chick was super sexy in all that PVC and there was lots of shooting, so… yeah, that movie was awesome.

Close enough, right? Well no, that’s completely missing the message of this movie. Here’s how life imitates art imitates life imitates art…

In the movie, human bodies are used as a “power source” so that the heartless, unfeeling and vastly superior (at least technologically) machines can rule their world. The machines fabricate an artificial reality for those they are sucking their very life from, those of whom they see only as an efficient but undesirable necessity. They create a dumbed down world so that humans can wander around, experience things and think that what’s happening in their life is real and important. This gives off the energy in the brain that the machines are harvesting and using. The humans are asleep. In a force fed coma, of sorts. They “live” in a world that has been created solely as a way to control them, keep them working hard enough to get the most out of them possible. But when you wake up…

Ah, but when you wake up, you see that you have been lied to. That there is actually a war on. That the overlords of technocracy saw you as nothing but a disposable source of power, a means to an end. The fed you just enough to keep you going, keep you fighting with each other, paying taxes, watching the TV, going to sporting events, and plodding, one meaningless day after another, through your seemingly meaningless life. After all, your life is meaningless, to them. You’re a commodity, a resource to be used, exploited, squeezed dry and then discarded, recycled or thrown away.

It is widely held in many circles that the book book Matrix Of Power by Jordan Maxwell is the premiss for this movie’s story line. Maxwell is well worth a couple hours of research on the web. His videos on youtube and other sources of information are amazingly in depth, yet easy to understand, study of the world we live in, who controls it, what they want from us, how and why they lie to us and, in the end, how they keep us too embattled with each other to ever stop and notice them.

If you can understand and accept the concept of a global power elite, the Council On Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, The Bilderberg Group (just to name a few) that are actually controlling your world, that you are kept around to pay them taxes and do their bidding, that they don’t care about you, your family, your health and that once you become enough of a nuisance, your services are no longer needed or valid or they’ve found a way to replace you that you are simply gone (or more likely targeted as an enemy)… you will now be able to watch the the The Matrix with a different, more accurate perspective.

It’s as simple as this; there is a very small group of people / families that have always run things. They don’t always agree on everything. They bicker, they fight, they compete, they throw one another under the bus. But one thing they do agree on; They’re better than you. Better, smarter, stronger, more aggressive, more entitled. Hell, there’s even a large body of research that says they believe their from a completely different, more highly evolved blood line, if not solar system / plane of existence. Look at such lunacies as The Groom Of The Stool, Royal Bloodlines, The Reptilian Elite just to name a few. There is clearly a lot of commotion around the question of; are some people here superior to others. And I can tell you that many think the answer is yes. And even less surprising, the ones that think so, are the ones that think it’s them… And in their minds, they own you and everything on this planet. The really scary part is; they’re getting very close, and you’re letting it happen…
