Trump Now A Captive Of The Deep State
Paul Craig Roberts
When the gullible and insouciant American public and the presstitutes who participate in the deceptions permitted the Deep State to get away with the fairy tale that a few Saudi Arabians under the direction of Osama bin Laden, but without the support of any government or intelligence agency, were able to outwit the entirety of the Western Alliance and Israel’s Mossad and deliver the greatest humiliation in history to “the world’s only superpower” by making the entirety of the US government dysfunctional on September 11, 2001, Washington learned that it could get away with anything, any illegal and treasonous act, any lie. The gullible Western populations would believe anything that they were told.
Not only insouciant Americans, but much of the world accepts any statement out of Washington as the truth despite the evidence. If Washington said it, Washington’s vassals in Germany, France, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Netherlands, Belgium, and Japan assent to the obvious lie as if it were the obvious truth. So do the CIA purchased media of these vassal states, a collection of whores who prefer CIA subsidies to truth.
When Obama inherited the Deep State’s agenda from George W. Bush, he set up Syria’s Assad for regime change by repeating for many months that if Assad used chemical weapons in the “civil war” that Washington had sent ISIS to conduct, Assad would have crossed the “Red Line” that Obama had drawn and would, as the consequence, face an invasion by the US military, just as Iraq had been invaded based on Washington’s lie about “weapons of mass destruction.”
Having burnt this idea into the feeble minds of the Western populations, Obama then arranged for a chemical weapon to be exploded in Syria and blamed it on Assad. Thus, the Red Line had been crossed, the insouciant West was told, and America would now invade.
The UK prime minister, the usual piece of Washington-owned garbage, rushed to the support of the American invasion, promising British support. But the British Parliament voted NO. The MPs said that the UK was not going to support another American war crime justified by obvious lies. Only in Britain does democracy still have any teeth, as we saw a second time with the Brexit vote. All the rest of the West lives in vassalage and slavery.
The Russian government also took a firm stand, admitting that Russia stupidly trusted America in Libya, but no more. We, said the Russians, will ourselves remove any and all chemical weapons from Syria and turn them over to Western “civilization” to be destroyed, which the Russians did.
What did Western “civilization” do with the weapons? They gave some of them to ISIS. This gave Washington a second chance to accuse Assad of using chemical weapons “against his own people.”
And so Washington has rolled out this hoax a second time. During a Syrian air force attack on an ISIS position, a chemical weapon exploded, or so it is alleged. Instantly Washington said that Assad had used “Sarin gas against his own people.” Trump was shown photos of dead babies and stupidly ordered a US military strike against Syria.
This was the first time that Washington had engaged in an unambigious war crime without any cover. Trump had no UN resolution, not even one that could be stood on its head as in Libya. Trump had no NATO participation, no George W. Bush “coalition of the willing” to give cover to the war crime with the support of other governments.
There are no skirts for Trump to hid behind. He stupidly let himself be pushed into commiting an unambigious war crime.
Now all his opponents—the Deep State, the military/security complex, the CIA, the Hillary Democrats, the warmonger Republicans—have the New White House Fool under their control. If Trump doesn’t do as they want, they will impeach him for his war crime.
Meanwhile the risk of war with the Russian/Chinese/Iranian/Syrian alliance grows closer. The US shows every intention of provoking this war. Washington has imposed sanctions on 271 employees of Syria’s Scientific Studies and Research Center for, in Washington’s lying words, responsibility “for developing and producing non-conventional weapons and the means to deliver them.”
In order to make this false charge stick, Washington prevented any investigation whatsoever into the facts of the alleged chemical weapon associated by Western propaganda, not by any known fact, with a Syrian air attack on ISIS. If Washington is so certain that Syria is responsible, why does Washington block an investigation? If Washington is right, an investigation would prove Washington’s case. But as Washington is again lying through its teeth, an investigation would prove the contrary. And that is what Washington fears and is the reason Washington blocked an investigation.
Why do Western peoples believe the US government, a well proven liar, who blocks an investigation and asserts that everyone must believe Washington or else be put on a list of Russian agents?
Here is the lie, the raw propaganda, that the US government has no qualms about issuing: https://www.treasury.gov/press-center/press-releases/Pages/sm0056.aspx It comes from the US Department of the Treasury in which I once served honorably. But honor no longer exists in the US Treasury.
Are Western populations intelligent enough to understand that the only reason for Washington to block an investigation of the alleged use by Syria of a chemical weapon is that the facts clearly do not support Washington’s lie? No, they are not.
Theodore Postol, a scientist at MIT, has concluded from his investigation that the chemical weapon was not dropped from the air but was set off on the ground and that it was not Sarin gas as Sarin lingers and the alleged aid workers who were immediately on the scene were unprotected by gloves or masks or by anything. If the gas were Sarin, they would be dead also.
The Russian explanation is that the Syrian air force attack hit a storage facility, conveniently arranged by Washington, that contained chemical weapons. I have seen reports that Washington, or Washington’s vassals such as Saudi Arabia, have provided ISIS with chemical weapons. President Putin of Russia says the reason Washington has delivered chemical weapons to ISIS is that there can be more orchestrated instances of their use that can be blamed on Assad.
I think I can say in complete confidence that this is what is happening: Washington intends to wear Russia down with orchestrated chemical attack after chemical attack, portraying Russia as an inhuman defender of Assad’s alleged chemical attacks, in order to more thoroughly isolate Russia and in order to provoke opposition to Putin’s government, especially among the US and German financed NGOs that Russia stupidly permits to operate in Russia and in the Russian media. Washington’s goal is to force by the weight of world opinion Putin to abandon Assad to Washington.
US Secretary of State Tillerson, another gigantic disappointment to those who hoped for peaceful relations between the US and Russia/China/Iran/Syria, has said that the US still intends regime change in Syria. Tillerson has advised Russia to get out of Washington’s way and to “consider carefully their support for Bashar al-Assad.”
Russia cannot abandon Assad, because if Syria falls to Washington, Iran will be next, and then the Washington-financed jihadists will be set upon the Muslim populations of the Russian Federation and China.
This is Washington’s game plan. I am certain Putin is aware of it, and I think the Chinese are, despite their inordinate focus on making money.
The questions before us could not be any clearer: Will Russia and China break and give in to Washington? If not, will Washington become a good world citizen for the first time in America’s history, or will Washington issue more threats, thereby convincing Russia and China that their alternative is to wait for Washington’s preemptive nuclear strike or deliver one themselves?
This is the only question that the world faces that is worth our attention. I spent a quarter century in Washington. The evil that is in control there at the present time is unprecedented. I have never seen anything like it.
Can the world survive the evil that is concentrated in Washington, evil that has the support of the governments of the Western world?
LISTEN TO THE WORDS OF OLD UNCLE VIKTOR. HE’S RIGHT.
IF YOU MESS WITH NATURE, THEN NATURE WILL FIGHT BACK. AND NATURE WILL WIN.
SO. ARE YOU WITH NATURE, OR AGAINST IT?
SURVIVAL, OR EXTINCTION?
IN THE YEAR 2030, OUR FATE COULD BE DECIDED.
Take good look at the following wonderful illustrations:
The artist is Roger Dean, noted for his album cover fantasy art. So these are just some artist’s dream, yes?
How about these:
The architect is Frank Lloyd Wright, and once again, these appear to be a creative mind indulging in flights of fantasy.
You would be wrong. These are real designs. Two artists separated by decades of time, a continent apart, with the same goal. They both believe that you deserve to live in a better world, and that you are being deceived, and you are being made to live in a world that destroys and works against nature. They are presenting you with visions of how our homes and cities should and can be.
See for yourselves:
And yet our greedy Elitist governments want you to live and work in bland, brick and concrete industrial wastelands. Now they want you to make do with less and live in containers, while others have no hope of affording even the most basic dwelling.
Meanwhile they hoard trillions of dollars in their tax havens. Stolen money, stolen opportunities.
See those images above? This is what they stole from us.
In the wake of the 2010 Greendale fault earthquake, Christchurch breathed a sigh of relief. Sure, there were homes and buildings damaged, and Kaiapoi in particular was badly affected. Buildings are buildings, we’ll make ’em newer and better. Some of those rickety old structures needed tearing down anyhow, right?
A chance to do some rebuilding.
The main thing is, no one died. Such lucky timing. And a once-in-16,000-year event they say? No worries. Open up the EQC coffers, the tradies have a field day overcharging and draining said coffers. Everyone happy…..
So why was the ground still shaking?
Did someone mention rebuilding?
Be careful what you wish for. In order to rebuild, one must first demolish.
In the Aftermath of February 22, 2011, a slogan emerged in Christchurch. A single word:
And heaven knows. we sure need it.
I won’t delve, yet again, into the extraordinary coincidences and events that led to the “On Cue” demolition job that was the February 22 ‘quake, as others , including Jeff Phillips, have covered everything in commendable detail. Nor will I repeat my personal experiences, which have been covered in other blogs.
I’m going to focus on one man, his mission in Christchurch, and the corporations he works for and the connections that reveal a combined and co ordinated effort to bring into being the New World Order.
They call him “Mr. Disaster”, and what an appropriate nickname it is.
Let’s start with this man’s entry into Christchurch. He was here for a somewhat controversial assemblage of dignitaries at the Christchurch Convention centre; the Pacific Partner’s Forum (PPF), paving the way for the TPPA. While this event drew a fair amount of media scrutiny due to the “closed door” secrecy, it would all be eclipsed and forgotten the next day:
Mere moments before the quake struck, “Mr. Disaster” and his retinue departed Christchurch, for the safety of Wellington. Right on cue.
“Pleased to meet you, hope you guessed my name,
What’s confusing you is the nature of my game…”
Thad William Allen (born January 16, 1949) is a former United States Coast Guard admiral who served as the 23rd Commandant of the Coast Guard. Allen is best known for his widely praised performance directing the federal response to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in the Gulf Coast region from September 2005 to January 2006, and for his role as National Incident Commander of the Unified Command for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. Robert J. Papp, Jr. succeeded him as Commandant on May 25, 2010, in a change of command ceremony.
In his four decades of service, Allen has held operational command both at sea and ashore, conducting missions to support the maritime safety, security and environmental stewardship interests of the nation. He served aboard USCGC Androscoggin (WHEC-68), and USCGC Gallatin (WHEC-721) and commanded USCGC Citrus (WLB-300). He performed dual roles as commanding officer of Group Long Island Sound and Captain of the Port, and he commanded Group Atlantic City and LORAN Station Lampang, Thailand from 1974 to 1975. He also commanded the Seventh Coast Guard District in Miami and the Atlantic Area in Portsmouth, Virginia.
Allen remained on active duty for 36 days after being succeeded as commandant while serving as Deepwater Horizon National Incident Commander. He officially retired from the U.S. Coast Guard on June 30, 2010, but continued to serve as National Incident Commander as a civilian for an additional three months. He has served as an Executive Vice President at Booz Allen Hamilton since November, 2011.
Wow. Quite a career. This is the important part:
In October 2010, Allen joined the RAND Corporation as a senior fellow. On November 28, 2011, Booz Allen Hamilton named Allen a Senior Vice President at Booz Allen Hamilton. Allen joined the firm’s Justice and Homeland Security business and will lead development of thought leadership and client engagement regarding the direction of law enforcement and homeland security.
RAND corporation. If you haven’t heard of that one, you should have. What role did Allen play as a “Senior Fellow” at RAND?
“In this Resilient Communities podcast, Admiral Thad Allen discusses the critical questions confronting the field of community resilience as well as a new toolkit developed by RAND researchers to support community disaster planning.”
The Admiral’s specialist field then, is disaster rehabilitation, resilience, and infrastructure and community rebuilding. I should think by now, every Christchurch resident reading this will be sitting up and taking notice.
This guy just happened to be in Christchurch moments before the big quake hit, moved out of town during the event itself, then came back to advise us on rebuilding..?
HELLO, WAKE UP!
One would almost think this earthquake was expected. Hillary Clinton sure seemed to think it was “right on cue”.
SO WHY IS A MILITARY MAN WITH NO ARTISTIC ABILITY, NO IMAGINATION, AND NO PERCEPTIBLE AFFINITY FOR NATURE, ADVISING US ON HOW TO REBUILD CHRISTCHURCH, “THE GARDEN CITY”?
But RAND isn’t the half of it.
Here’s the big part, and the part that seems to have escaped the attention of most:
Booz Allen Hamilton.
So what? Big consultancy corporation aren’t they?
Transportation and infrastructure consultants. No wonder they picked Allen to be their man. But, again, so what?
Looking to “change the world”? This is your firm! Hint of NWO? You bet. They do have a branch here in NZ, and have been heavily involved in rail and transportation consultancy here. Now things start to get really interesting. BAH is not what it seems to be.
“Booz Allen, a consulting firm that earns billions of dollars by working for American intelligence agencies, has been called the world’s most profitable spy organization. …. the lucrative contracting business that American intelligence now relies on to run its vast, global surveillance operations.
The company also employed Edward J. Snowden, who spirited out a cache of documents that, in 2013, exposed the extent of American surveillance programs in the United States and around the world.
Booz Allen is one of a handful of defense and intelligence contractors that blur the line between the government’s intelligence work and private enterprise.”
In plain English, guys. the NSA is advising on the rebuild of Christchurch. And has been advising and consulting in New Zealand’s infrastructure for a long time!
Firms like Booz Allen Hamilton and their employees also spend big to maintain their influence in Washington through lobbying and campaign contributions. According to OpenSecrets, a project of the Center for Responsive Politics, Booz Allen Hamilton employees donated $139,907 to candidates in the 2016 election cycle, and the company has spent $310,000 lobbying since 2015.
Booz Allen Hamilton’s lobbyists also benefit from the “revolving door” of the military-industrial complex. According to OpenSecrets, “4 out of 6 Booz Allen Hamilton lobbyists in 2015-2016 have previously held government jobs.”
At $35,017, Hillary Clinton was the top recipient of contributions from Booz Allen Hamilton employees. The contractor’s employees also donated $15,165 to DNC Services Corp, a Democratic Party PAC, and $13,603 to Bernie Sanders during the same time period.
Employees also supported the Republican Party, with just under $20,000 in contributions going to top GOP candidates Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush. Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president, netted $4,100, less than his GOP rivals.
Both Clinton and Trump have sharply criticized Snowden, with Trump going so far as to call for him to be executed. Even Sanders was reluctant to praise the whistleblower during his campaign, though he has joined the “Pardon Snowden” movement since ending his candidacy for president.
In a 2013 interview with Democracy Now!, Shorrock warned that Americans should be alarmed by the cozy relationship between U.S. intelligence agencies and the corporate 1%. He told Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman:
“[W]e have hundreds of thousands of contractors with security clearances. We have hundreds of thousands of federal workers in, you know, Homeland Security and intelligence. We have a massive number of people that are monitoring other Americans. I think it’s a very dangerous situation.
So, we see that “Mr. Disaster” has some very powerful and rather terrifying connections. But wait. there’s more.
Take a look at the subject of this symposium:
Look closely. Who’s on the panel?
Nov 21, 2013 – light rail system, buses, and other transportation services were …… Thad Allen, Executive Vice President, Booz Allen Hamilton, McLean, VA.
“Most members of the public and the news media see the UN as a secular organisation, but UN documents reveal the organisation believes it has a “spiritual” mission to usher in a new world leader who has yet to reveal themselves. That’s one of the reasons the Pope’s involvement with the UN is significant.
“No human force will ever be able to destroy the United Nations,” wrote Assistant UN Secretary General Robert Muller in 1994, “for the United Nations is not a mere building or a mere idea; it is not a man-made creation.”
If you think that’s a strange statement for one of the UN’s topmost officials to make, what followed was a doozy:
“The United Nations is the vision-light of the Absolute Supreme, which is slowly, steadily and unerringly illuminating the ignorance, the night
of our human life.
“The divine success and supreme progress of the United Nations is bound to become a reality. At his choice hour, the Absolute Supreme will
ring His own victory-bell here on Earth through the loving and serving heart of the United Nations.”
Sounds distinctly NWO-Project Blue Beam, yes?
Remember The Lucis Trust, the UN charter organisation? Their Satanic-Luciferian influence is all over this. Check out the connections for yourself, most of you probably already have.
I will leave the last words to Roger Dean, who has been an inspiration to me all my life:
And Frank Lloyd Wright, who I have only recently discovered:
If you listened to these two men speak, you listened to hope.
Remember that my blogs always involve personal opinion and speculation, and I always appreciate constructive criticism, additional information or any other feedback.
Thanks for reading,
The MSM Comedy Hour never ends. Murdoch just advised that Fox News is doing great. While down at CNN they ran footage of Chinese soldiers, in Chinese uniforms, with Chinese weapons, boarding a Chinese helicopter, and said they were American Marines. They have Fact Checkers as well as armies of editors. But sometimes the comedy and fiction writers just seem to take hold.
Another Junk Law Bench Warmer has emerged. Judge William Orrick III has determined that Trump cannot block federal funding to cities which refuse to obey federal laws concerning the protection of illegal immigrants; The Sanctuary City inanity. (Ed’s note, see Rappoport: https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2017/04/25/breaking-obama-judge-blocks-fed-action-against-sanctuary-cities-he-raised-money-for-obama/ )
This character was a money chaser (bundler: avoiding contribution laws) for Obama. A non entity Junk Law enthusiast. He worked to block Alabama passing state legislation to control illegal immigrants. He did the same in Arizona, concerning SB1070, to control illegals.
He was such a genius at his career or bundling for Obama, that Obama popped him up to be a bench warmer. The notorious little fellow even promising that he would exclude himself from decisions concerning illegal immigrants. But he lied. Who would believe that he would do such a thing?
Texas is currently passing state legislation to control illegal immigrants. The legislation correctly includes the gaoling of local sheriffs who refuse to enforce federal immigration laws.
Illegal Immigration is a major Socio-Economic issue. It is not some social engineering moralised play toy. You either get it, or you get out. Employment is taken from Americans; causing economic damage. They commit crime and use the medical and legal systems, causing economic damage. The ancillary damage is estimated at $90 billion for fiscal 2017.
Nancy Pelosi is House Minority Leader; a Democrat. Her history is littered with absurdities and delusions. To suggest she has no idea; is being overly kind. Obviously she’s well qualified to be a high end Democrat.
She appeared on a TV wafflefest supporting illegal immigration. A clueless jockey of the first order. With her were two ranchers. They advised that they had to fence and patrol their own properties to prevent what was happening; including the movement of violent drug gangs. One advised that over a 30 year period, over half a million captures and returns had been conducted. But Pelosi knew better.
House Majority Leader, Paul Ryan, seriously damaged the passage of The Obamacare Repeal Bill. Instead of a one sentence repeal with the new legislation attached; he puts forward a 2,000 page repeal. Everthing focussed on that document, without the new legislation gaining any traction. He also naively assumed votes in a chamber controlled by a GOP majority without confirming.
As a consequence of the latter; The Congressional Human Rights Caucus (the same crew who sucked in the Nayirah al Sabah, Lauri Fitz Pegado, Hill and Knowlton, Kuwaiti Humidicrib Lie in 1990) decides it will package its 30 lower house votes to block the repeal. Ryan has to pull the vote.
The current position; which should never have occurred; and will be difficult to remove in the future; involves the passage of the repeal, together with the new legislation; but with the addition that; members of Congress and their staff will be excluded and treated separately as a privileged sector.
The full import of which is difficult to explain to the community who sought a better system. The community will be carrying Congressional members, their staff and their families. Those on high goverment salaries and benefits will be carried by those at the other end of that spectrum.
The USN has just come out posturing that they are being threatened by Iranian patrol boats, when The USN wonders into Iranian territorial coastal waters in The Persian Gulf.
In reality it is virtually a daily event, and is The USN charging down on small Iranian patrol boats. The USN stopped the practice in The South China Sea, when The Chinese Navy sent out tankers to stand fast amidships infront of USN charge downs. The USN only needed to ram one.
The USS Mahan, guided missile destroyer was threatened when the Iranian patrol boat came within 1,000 meters. So The Mehan fired a flare at it, and it moved away. That certainly would have terrified anyone. Even any terrorists on that patrol boart.
On 3/7/1988; The USS Vincennes under the command of William C. Rogers III in The Persian Gulf; moved close into Iranian coastal waters; in what was later described as; ‘Reckless and aggressive behaviour’. He ordering the firing of an SM-2MR Surface to Air missile, shooting down Iranian Air Flight 655, murdering 290 civilians.
The civilian flight had taken off from Mehraban International Airport, Tehran, on a sceduled flight to Dubai. It was in Iranian airspace, and would not pass any disputed airspace.
Following which many deceptions were put forward by America and the propagandised MSM. One was that; The Vincennes had launched a helicopter, it had accidentally wandered into Iranian airspace. Rogers thought that an F-14A was taking off to engage the helicopter, so he had it shot down.
Iran had taken delivery directly from Gruman of F14As some 18 years prior. They were armed with unguided bombs and unguided missiles. And would not have been sent to engage or warn. Rogers would have been aware of all this.
Then it was put that The Vincennes tried to make radio contact with the aircraft without success. IA-655 was on continuous signal civilian IFF Mode III. Not military IFF Mode II. In addition; The Vincennes would be normally monitoring all local area frequencies. The chatter between IA-655 and ground control would have been monitored. Radar would have further confirmed the position.
All of which was further confirmed by the ICAO report that followed.
MSM had run with strong ethnocentric bias, fed by the Reagan-GHWB administration.
Rogers was moved to a desk job st Port Loma and retired into hiding in August 1991.
On 10/3/1989, Rogers’ wife Sharon stopped at a traffic light in San Diego. The car was hit by a small rocket and exploded into flames. The local police and FBI describing the device as a pipe bomb. She was not injured. No one was fitted for the event. Which signals another issue.
The American government in traditional form; after a hearing brought in The ICJ, offered an ex-gratia payment to the families of the people murdered; without any liability, explanation, or apology. It was a total of $61.8 million in total. Not a big print run for Treasury.
The intel files read an interesting parallel with MH-17. Except for the SVR-GRU hack concerning the latter. Neither of which I can render. There is also a connection with Lockerbie PA-103 (21/12/1988), and MH-370. Libya did not down PA-103.

What Chuck Schumer is revealing out in the open
by Jon Rappoport
April 26, 2017
Senator Chuck Schumer on MSNBC (via ZeroHedge): “We’re no longer fact-based. The founding fathers created a country based on fact. We don’t have a fact base. If Breitbart News and the New York Times are regarded with equal credibility, you worry about this democracy.”
First of all, in Schumer’s opening sentence, who is this “we”? There is an implication that the “we” is somehow monolithic and centralized. But people have been in disagreement about facts and what they mean since the dawn of time. People have rejected centralized sources of facts, from kings and queens and priests, to newspapers and television news.
In the same way that 99% of economists assume society must be planned and centralized, Schumer and “the people in power” assume media must operate as a centralized force—as if it’s a natural law.
They just assume it, because until recently, it was the case, it was cozy and easy. But not now. And they’re angry and shocked. They see their foundation of propaganda and mind control slipping away.
You must appreciate how secure they used to feel. It was a cake walk, a picnic in the park. The definition of “fact” was: whatever centralized media said it was. What could be simpler? And to them, that was “democracy.”
Feed the people lies, hide deeper truth, slam dunk.
Then along came independent media.
It turned out millions of people were interested.
The cat jumped out of the bag.
I know about this. I’ve been letting cats out of bags since 1982.
That’s longer than some of my readers have been alive.
I also know about censorship, because almost from the beginning of my work as a reporter, I had stories turned down by major media outlets and even alternative outlets. I saw the handwriting on the wall.
Chuck Schumer is echoing what many of his colleagues—and far more powerful people—are worrying about. Their vaunted mouthpieces, the NY Times, the Washington Post, etc., are failing. They can’t carry the same old freight with impunity.
So Schumer “worries about the future of democracy.” What he’s actually worried about has nothing to do with democracy, and it certainly has nothing to do with a Republic, which was the form of this nation from the beginning.
Schumer is worried about decentralization.
He’s worried that people are defecting from the authoritarian arrogant Castle of Truth.
And, given his position, he should be worried.
We are at a tipping point. Needless to say—but I will say it—independent media need your support. Your choice about where you obtain your news makes a difference.
Until a few years ago, I never considered that I was relentless. I was just doing my work. But as I saw the counter-efforts of major media, social media, government, Globalists, and other players, as they tried to reassert their primacy, I found a deeper level of commitment. A person can find many reasons to stop what he is doing. Every person eventually realizes that. But will he give in? Or will he decide to keep going? My choice is reflected on these pages, where I write every day.
Many of my colleagues have made the same choice. As for myself, I take the long, long view. Whatever befalls this civilization, the individual survives. He cannot be erased. I know that as surely as I know I am sitting here.
People like Chuck Schumer are living on a foundation of sand. Their power depends on obfuscation and deception and exchanging favors. When they feel the ground shifting under their feet, they growl and accuse and declaim and resort to fake ideals. If they see their con isn’t working and isn’t selling, then they panic.
Which is a good sign.
Many, many years ago, I had a good relationship with a media outlet. Then one day, the man in charge told me I was “positioning myself” outside the scope of his audience. I was speaking to “different people,” and therefore I should “go my own way.” I could tell he wasn’t happy about saying this, because he thought of himself as an independent, but there it was. He was bending to the demands of “his people.” So we parted company.
I was now further “out there” than I had been before. I was “independent of an ‘independent’ media outlet.” It took me about five minutes to see the joke. A good and useful joke.
As the years rolled on, I kept finding myself in a more independent position, which meant I was writing what I wanted to write, and in the process I was discovering deeper levels of what I wanted to write.
Understanding this changed my political view. If I didn’t stand for the free and independent individual, what did I stand for? If I didn’t keep coming back to THAT, what could I come back to?
It made sense to me then, and it makes sense to me now.
This is why I keep writing about collective, the group, the mass, and the generality, those fake representations of life.
The individual is always free, whether he knows it or not. And therefore, he can choose.
This is what the Chuck Schumers of this world vaguely apprehend on the horizon. They can’t believe what they’re seeing; it’s too horrible a prospect. They reject it as a fantasy. A random nightmare.
But it isn’t a random nightmare.
It’s the potential for an open future.
Back from obscurity.
Back from the late 18th century, when the ideas embedded in the Constitution reflected the desire to unleash the free and independent individual and afford him protection from the powers-that-be.

Water is rapidly becoming the new oil:
A scenario reminiscent of Western Business interests dealing with Nazi Germany (Prescott Bush, remember?). It remains unclear how much of this is actually endorsed or officially tolerated by Chinese government, but it does seem logical that North Korea relies heavily on foreign supply for it’s weapons manufacturing.
One thing of note:
“Businesses based in China” says the article. Lots of businesses have manufacturing bases in China, many of them Western owned. More to the picture….?
When North Korea launched its Kwangmyongsong-4 satellite into space last February, officials heralded the event as a birthday gift for dead leader Kim Jong Il. But the day also brought an unexpected prize for the country’s adversaries: priceless intelligence in the form of rocket parts that fell into the Yellow Sea.
Entire sections of booster rocket were snagged by South Korea’s navy and then scrutinized by international weapons experts for clues about the state of North Korea’s missile program. Along with motor parts and wiring, investigators discerned a pattern. Many key components were foreign-made, acquired from businesses based in China.
The trove “demonstrates the continuing critical importance of high-end, foreign-sourced components” in building the missiles North Korea uses to threaten its neighbors, a U.N. expert team concluded in a report released last month. When U.N. officials contacted the implicated Chinese firms to ask about the parts, the report said, they received only silence.
China’s complex relationship with North Korea was a key topic during last week’s U.S. visit by President Xi Jinping, as Trump administration officials urged Chinese counterparts to apply more pressure on Pyongyang to halt its work on nuclear weapons and long-range delivery systems. Yet, despite China’s public efforts to rein in North Korea’s provocative behavior, Chinese companies continue to act as enablers, supplying the isolated communist regime with technology and hardware that allow its missiles to take flight, according to current and former U.S. and U.N. officials and independent weapons experts.
The private assistance has included sensitive software and other items specifically banned for export to North Korea under U.N. Security Council sanctions, the officials and experts said.
China has officially denied that such illegal exports exist, but investigations show restricted products were shipped privately to North Korea as recently as 18 months ago. Still unclear, analysts said, is whether the Chinese government tacitly approved of the exports, or is simply unable or unwilling to police the thousands of Chinese companies that account for more than 80 percent of all foreign goods imported by North Korea each year.
“There’s all kinds of slack in the system,” said Joshua Pollack, a former consultant to U.S. government agencies on arms control and a senior research associate with the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies. “It could be that the Chinese don’t care enough to do much about it. A second possibility it that they don’t have the systems — such as strong export controls — in place. Or that it’s just corruption.”
Whatever the reason, experts say, the flow of products through China has allowed North Korea’s missiles engineers to achieve progress that would otherwise be difficult for an impoverished regime that is cut off from the West and lacks a sophisticated microelectronics industry.
When confronted privately about such exports, Chinese officials have typically demanded high levels of proof — specific names and dates that can be difficult to derive from water-damaged rocket parts pulled from the ocean, said an Obama administration nonproliferation official involved in sensitive negotiations with China over its relations with North Korea.
“They’d say, ‘give us details,’ but in most cases we could never say it was ‘this precise person on this precise day,’” said the official, who insisted on anonymity in describing diplomatic negotiations. “With them, it was never a team sport. It was always just the bare minimum of what they had to do in order to avoid having to take serious action.”
The Unha-3, the rocket that launched North Korea’s Kwangmyongsong-4 satellite into orbit on Feb. 7, 2016, was among the most powerful ever built by Kim Jong Un’s government. It is also the most worrisome. U.S. and South Korean intelligence officials have long believed that the three-stage, 100-foot-tall rocket was designed as a forerunner for a future nuclear-tipped space vehicle that could allow North Korea to threaten cities as far away as Washington.
Mindful that spy agencies would seek to recover spent parts after the launch, North Korean engineers laced the rocket with explosives so that each stage would self-destruct while hurtling back to Earth. Still, South Korean navy ships were waiting to scoop up any parts that survived, eventually harvesting enough components to allow a crude reconstruction of the entire rocket.
Investigators determined that the Unha-3’s frame was indigenously made. But inside the rocket’s shell was an array of electronics, including specialized pressure sensors, transmitters and circuitry. An extensive probe by U.S. and South Korean officials revealed that many of the components had been manufactured in Western countries and shipped to North Korea by Chinese distributors — a finding that was echoed in the United Nations Panel of Experts report made public on March 9.
The report, which received scant attention outside the world body, described elaborate systems for disguising technology exports intended for North Korea. Some schemes involved Chinese front-companies created by North Korean intelligence agencies; others were run through banks created as joint ventures by Pyongyang and foreign partners, including Chinese financial institutions. As sanctions grew tougher, the sanction-busters simply learned new tricks for getting around the rules, the panel’s investigators found.
“The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is flouting sanctions through trade in prohibited goods, with evasion techniques that are increasing in scale, scope and sophistication,” the eight-member panel concluded. International resolve for approving new sanctions had “not yet been matched,” the report said, “by the requisite political will, prioritization and resource allocation to ensure effective implementation.”
The track record on this vaccine (Gardasil) just keeps getting worse. Please do watch the series screening right now called ‘The Truth About Vaccines’ at the link.

(NaturalHealth365) A 12-year-old aspiring pop star from the UK is now bed ridden with paralysis from the neck down after receiving the HPV vaccine called, Gardasil. However, instead of acknowledging a vaccine injury, doctors want to have her committed.
Mia Blesky received the Gardasil shot at her school in September. The next day she experienced a burning sensation in her spine and a heaviness in her legs. These symptoms quickly progressed to a full loss of feeling in all of her arms and legs. (and the doctors think, ‘it’s all in her head?!’)
The 12-year-old has a gift for singing and an aspiration of becoming a pop star. However, now that she is paralyzed from the neck down, her prospects have become much more limited. At this time, Mia can only talk and blink her eyes. She must now be home-schooled from her bed; however, she continues to receive singing lessons.
