Politics is Fake and Staged

The following video was published by corbettreport on Jul 21, 2016
Only a psychopath could read someone else’s lies from their teleprompter with such feigned emotion. And only the flag-waving, dumbed down masses could believe them. Politicians are puppets, and your only questions should be: “Who is writing their speeches? And who is pulling their strings?” This is a public service announcement from The Corbett Report.

America is Being Divided and Conquered Into Oblivion

Or take the right to vote. In principle, it is a great privilege. In practice, as recent history has repeatedly shown, the right to vote, by itself, is no guarantee of liberty. Therefore, if you wish to avoid dictatorship by referendum, break up modern society’s merely functional collectives into self-governing, voluntarily co-operating groups, capable of functioning outside the bureaucratic systems of Big Business and Big Government.
-Aldous Huxley, in Brave New World Revisited (1958)
The single event that changed my life more than any other was TARP, aka the banker bailouts. The unfairness, extreme greed and selfishness with which the status quo bailed out financial criminals while leaving the public high and dry changed me forever. When it comes to shaping American history, it is equal in importance to the attacks of 9/11.
As someone who grew up privileged, I never really questioned the criminality of the status quo system. Like so many others who are beneficiaries of the ways things are, there’s no much incentive to look behind the curtain. Nevertheless, the banker bailouts shook me to my core and opened my mind in ways that no other event could. At the time, I was happily earning a very large income at a young age while doing absolutely nothing to benefit society. As such, I couldn’t contemplate why government officials were putting so much money and energy into bailing out people like me, while ignoring everyone else. It felt irrational, unethical and dirty. I wrote about all this for over a year while still working in the financial sector, before concluding that it was time to part ways in early 2010. Even back then, I was incessantly warning that tremendous anger from the banker bailouts would ultimately bubble to the surface and create the sort of backdrop in which authoritarians, demagogues and fascists thrive.
The following years have felt like a tremendous rollercoaster ride. My emotions have vacillated significantly from pessimism to optimism, and now reside in a bizarre state in which the two inhabit an uncomfortable coexistence. I’ve previously defined the monumental struggle of our time as: Liberty and Decentralization vs. Authoritarianism and Centralization. For example, I noted in the post, The Comcast/Time Warner Merger and the War Between Centralization and Decentralization:

New York Media Struggles to Name the Most Dishonest Presidential Candidate

In what feels like scenes from an edgy political satire film, New York media are now alternately casting either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton as the most dishonest presidential candidate in the annals of political history. Tragically for the country, there are legitimate grounds for making either case.
On the very eve of the Republican National Convention, where the party of Lincoln is expected to choose real estate billionaire Donald Trump as their candidate for the highest office in the United States, the New York Times ran a front page article yesterday in its highest circulation Sunday edition, characterizing Trump’s career as an ‘operatic record of dissembling and deception.’
Staring up at Republican convention goers in the lobbies of their Cleveland hotels, under the byline of New York Times reporter David Barstow, was the following:
‘As Mr. Trump prepares to claim the Republican nomination for president this week, he and his supporters are sure to laud his main calling card – his long, operatic record as a swaggering business tycoon. And without question, there will be successes aplenty to highlight, from his gleaming golden high-rises to his well-regarded golf resorts, hit TV shows and best-selling books. But a survey of Mr. Trump’s four decades of wheeling and dealing also reveals an equally operatic record of dissembling and deception, some of it unabashedly confirmed by Mr. Trump himself, who nearly 30 years ago first extolled the business advantages of ‘truthful hyperbole.’ Indeed, based on the mountain of court records churned out over the span of Mr. Trump’s career, it is hard to find a project he touched that did not produce allegations of broken promises, blatant lies or outright fraud.’

FAKE CIA AGENT AND FOX NEWS ‘TERROR EXPERT’ SENTENCED TO PRISON FOR LYING TO THE PUBLIC FOR YEARS

Editor’s Note: The difference is, if he had been a real CIA agent, he would get to continue lying to the public for years…
A man who falsely claimed for decades to be a CIA agent and worked as the FOX News ‘Terror Expert’ has now been sentenced to 33 months in prison, according to prosecutors, as cited by Reuters.
According to a U. S. District Attorney’s Office statement, Wayne Shelby Simmons of Annapolis, Maryland, was sentenced in a U. S. District Court in Alexandria, Virginia.
‘Wayne Simmons is a fraud,’ U. S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Maryland, Dana Boente, flatly stated. ‘Simmons has no military or intelligence background, or any skills relevant to the positions he attained through his fraud.’
U. S. District Judge T. S. Ellis III also ordered Simmons to serve three years of supervised release, pay restitution, and to forfeit two firearms and $176,000 in criminal proceeds.
Simmons had previously listed himself as a ‘CIA operative,’ and had appeared as a guest contributor since April 2003 under that assumed role. Reuters noted a grand jury indicted the former Fox News contributor in October for fraudulently posing as an ‘Outside Paramilitary Special Operations Officer’ for the Central Intelligence Agency for decades – from 1973 until 2000.

Fiat Chrysler Shares Slide On Reports Of SEC Securities Fraud Probe

Fiat Chrysler is under investigation by the U. S. Justice Department for fraud, according to people familiar with the matter. As Bloomberg reports, prosecutors are scrutinizing whether the carmaker violated U. S. securities laws, they said. The inquiry is in early stages, according to two people, who asked not to be identified because the investigation is confidential and declined to specify what conduct is being investigated.
A civil lawsuit against Fiat Chrysler may provide clues about what prosecutors are looking at.
A Chicago-area dealer alleges the company inflated its U. S. car sales by paying dealers to report selling more vehicles than they actually did.
Fiat Chrysler shares are sliding on the news…

The Trump Revolution: A Preliminary History

Beating the Hillary Hate Brigades (HHB) to the punch with what appears to be the first book published about the political rise of Donald Trump, Ilana Mercer has written an insightful short history of the ascendancy of ‘The Donald’ entitled The Trump Revolution: The Donald’s Creative Destruction Deconstructed. The HHB in the media will undoubtedly do its best to rewrite history (i.e., lie) when it comes to how Donald Trump repeatedly exposed them as mostly a bunch of frauds, imposters, and biased political hacks during the primary campaign season. The Trump Revolution sets the record straight on all of this, and more, in thirty-one short chapters, and will be a valuable – and entertaining – fact-check resource.
Why the entire Washington establishment, including the bigwigs of both parties, hate, and fear Trump is clearly explained by quoting the candidate’s own words. He opposed the invasion of Iraq and said the war was a terrible mistake; he favors liberalizing relations with Cuba; denounced his Republican competitors as ‘totally controlled by their donors, by the lobbyists, and by the special interests’; he explained that ‘the stock market is bloated,’ thanks to the Fed; he would rather ‘have a great relationship with Vladimir Putin’ and do business with Russians than start World War III against them; he said John McCain ‘is not a war hero. He is a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured, okay?’; he wants to enforce American immigration laws by building an even better border wall than the ones built by Clinton, Bush, and Obama (yes, Trump is not the first to have the idea); and he shocked and offended the liberal media by declaring that he does everything in his power to pay as little tax as possible.
Mercer would make a good speech writer in a Trump administration, for she has a talent for spot-on adjectives, such as ‘the none-too-bright Joan Walsh, Salon editor-in-chief’; ‘smarmy Michael Smerconish’ of CNN; ‘Campbell Brown, another banal bloviator’; ‘jackass Anderson Cooper of CNN’; the ‘malevolent moron’ Jorge Ramos of Univision; ‘being a Democrat generally comes with the presumption of asininity’; and how Megyn Kelly of FOX is ‘a showgirl, really.’

Jill Stein Just Promised To Pardon Snowden, Appoint Him To Cabinet If Elected

Presumptive Green Party presidential nominee Dr. Jill Stein promises to grant NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden – whom many describe as a true American hero – not just a full pardon, but a promotion to the upper echelons of government should she win the White House.
‘[Snowden] has done an incredible service to our country at great cost to himself for having to live away from his family, his friends, his job, his network, to basically live as an expatriate,’ Stein asserted during a town hall live-streamed to supporters on her Facebook page, US Uncut reported.
‘I would say not only bring Snowden back, but bring him into my administration as a member of the Cabinet,’ she continued, ‘because we need people who are part of our national security administration who are really, very patriotic. If we’re really going to protect our American security, we also have to protect our Constitutional rights, and that includes our right to privacy.’
Stein said her pardons wouldn’t stop with Snowden, but would extend to others, including CIA whistleblower John Kiriakou, who first revealed proof of U. S. government employment of waterboarding and other torture tactics, as well as Chelsea Manning.

NOT A WHITE PROBLEM

The statistics in the chart below are representative of every Democrat controlled urban shithole city in America. Obama and his anti-gun activist minions are peddling a false narrative about guns because they understand most Americans are dumber than a sack of hammers and easily manipulated by propaganda. Obama uses every high profile shooting to blame guns, in order to deflect people from seeing the truth. And the truth is guns are not a problem in white America.
It’s only a problem in the urban ghettos with the toughest gun laws run by Democrat mayors and city councils. Chicago is a perfect example of Obama ignoring the real problem. Fifty years of welfare programs and treating black people like victims has created a dysfunctional system leading to hopelessness, crime, and perpetual poverty. Chicago is 32% white, but they commit only 3.5% of the murders. Over 96% of the murders are committed by non-whites. Essentially, it is young black men murdering other black men. White people are not in the equation and are not part of the problem. It’s a black problem framed as a gun problem by Obama and his lying apparatchiks.
There are approximately 8,000 gun related homicides annually in the U. S. The vast majority occur in the urban ghettos and are committed by blacks and hispanics against other blacks and hispanics. They use illegally acquired guns, so more gun laws will do nothing. Their lawless culture, requiring no personal responsibility by those who father children, creates the dysfunction and crime. The urban ghetto kill zones all have the same thing in common – run by liberal Democrats for decades, with poverty created by their welfare policies, dreadful public schools, and a black population who don’t work and take no personal responsibility for their lives or their children.
Here are the murders by city for a sampling of these shitholes:

IT’S OFFICIAL: ROBOTS ARE NOW INJURING AND KILLING HUMANS

Even as robotics experts, universities and tech luminaries sound the alarm about the potential for a future filled with killer robots, this technology evidently already has arrived … minus the stringent ethics.
There can be no debate about the use of killer robots in the military. We are in the middle of an admitted global drone arms race in which there are mass civilian casualties occurring under a specious U. S. legal framework that has thus far not even excluded its own citizens from being targeted for assassination. There is also a host of ground- and sea-based systems that are equally lethal and continue to be tested in massive joint military exercises.
Time after time we have seen that military developments – normally first employed ‘over there’ – eventually trickle down into the everyday lives of citizens at home. Sometimes the technology is beneficial, most often it is not. When weapons of war are handed down to local police, for example, we can’t be shocked when we are soon having debates about ‘militarized police’ in the United States.
Artificial intelligence is another area that that has ushered in dual-use technologies such as drone surveillance and warfare, robot security guards and police, and self-driving vehicles for military and for civilians. In all cases we are now seeing disturbing misapplications as well as outright system failures. In fact, we are seeing many ‘firsts’ that are threatening to become a trend if not quickly addressed and reined in.

2000 Refugees Sexually Assaulted 1200 German Girls on New Year’s Eve

The refugee crisis in Europe is a real nightmare and the politicians are desperate to hide what is going on. The first incident of sexual assault that finally made the world news was in Cologne, Germany, on New Year’s Eve. Now, a leaked document has surfaced reporting that 2,000 men assaulted and raped 1,200 girls across Germany on New Year’s Eve. This illustrates how politicians would rather put 15-year-old girls at risk of rape than admit that they were seriously wrong.
Initially, there was dead silence from officials and the press was not reporting the truth after joining the cover-up conspiracy. Only after reports hit the internet (we even had clients contacting us) did the truth begin to surface. Then the police were told to remove the word ‘RAPE’ from all reports on the Cologne attacks. Then, Police Chief Wolfgang Albers, age 60, was fired after criticism of the police’s lack of involvement during the incident.

Osama Bin Laden’s Son Emerges, Threatens Revenge For Father’s Assassination

When it rains it pours. Lately the US has been dealing with surging violence between state police forces and local residents. Along with the continuing threat of ISIS, the US now has Hamza Bin Laden, son of Osama Bin Laden, to focus on following reports of a new audio message in which he threatens the US among others.
The new threat comes just over two months after the five-year anniversary of Osama Bin Laden’s death.
Hamza appears to desire a rekindling to the Bin Laden vs. US tensions following a recent surge in ISIS brand recognition. Hamza is a new face for al Qaeda and offers a millennial viewpoint for recruitment and brainwashing. As a mid-twenty-year-old Hamza is ripe to lead a new jihad given his claims that his revenge is less about his father and more about “those who defended Islam”.

Another Prosecutor Shows Comey’s Complete Incompetance-Political Bias?

Former District Attorney for the State of South Carolina and a Federal Prosecutor, Trey Gowdy, tears James Comey apart illustrating how he has simply refused to indict Hillary when there is far more evidence what she did was scathingly criminal. But the Democrats will cover it all up far worse than the Nixon cover-up of Watergate. This actually involves complete incompetence of Hillary to hold any office involving the security of the nation. In fact, now Paul Ryan has petitioned the intelligence agencies NOT to provide security information to Hillary during the campaign. Hillary has no credibility and never has. Now the State Department is reopening the probe into Hillary’s emails since Comey refuses to indict. They will look at sanctioning Hillary and her staff. This is a scandal beyond belief for it involves the very security of the United States as well as the entire western society. Hillary has place the West in danger and has the audacity to run for president. Worst yet, the Democrats justify her actions so effectively this means every government employee can refuse to use secure government emails and it is not a crime.

The End: Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes Banned For 2 Years From Entering A Lab

We appear to be entering the final chapter of the fraud known as Theranos which at one point captured Wall Street’s eye with the promise of unwarranted character affiliations and humorous magazine photo shoots.
Theranos founder and chief value pillager Elizabeth Holmes, who saw her net worth vanish from $4.5 billion to zilch, has been banned for two years from owning or even operating any sort of medical laboratory.
Last night on the company website Theranos notified investors that it “received notice from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services regarding the imposition of sanctions arising from the 2015 survey of its Newark California laboratory.”
The sanction Theranos lists from the CMS are as follows:
– Revocation of the laboratory’s CLIA certificate which, as dictated by the regulations, includes a prohibition on owners and operators of the lab from owning, operating or directing a lab for at least two years from the date of revocation

– Limitation of the laboratory’s CLIA certificate for the specialty of hematology

– A Civil Money Penalty
– A Directed Portion of a Plan of Correction

– Suspension of the laboratory’s approval to receive Medicare and Medicaid payments for any services performed for the specialty of hematology

– Cancellation of the laboratory’s approval to receive Medicare and Medicaid payments for all laboratory services

JUDGE HAS GEORGIA NEWSPAPER PUBLISHER JAILED AFTER HE REQUESTS PUBLIC RECORDS ON HER

Mark Thomason, a publisher out of North Georgia, and his attorney Russell Stookey, were both charged with attempted identity fraud and identity fraud after filing an Open Records Act request that apparently hit a little too close to home for a judge.
Thomason was also charged making a false statement in his request. They were arrested, spent the night in jail, released on $10,000 bond, and will be subject to random drug screens and a laundry list of things they cannot do or they’ll be thrown back in jail before their trial.
By all appearances, the arrests are in retaliation for pissing off Superior Court chief judge and chair of the state Judicial Qualifications Commission Brenda Weaver, who obtained the indictments on Thomason and his lawyer seemingly because of what they were after in their records request in regard to her business dealings.

3 boggling facts in Hillary email cover-up/Dallas shooting

– Arch-Globalist Hillary Clinton’s no-prosecution, the recent exit of Britain from the EU which torpedoed the unchecked advance of Globalism, the current Presidential campaign which features a candidate (formerly two candidates) attacking Globalism as no major candidate ever has before – all this suddenly fades from public consciousness in the specter of the Dallas shootings – the racial conflict that has been decades in the making – made in America, by Globalists, for the express purpose of Divide and Conquer –
I know full well how incompetent, stupid, amateurish, and ill-prepared government employees can be. But the dog and pony Hillary show of the last few days is truly staggering.
If the effort was to exonerate Hillary Clinton, it was done so badly the American people are more certain than ever that she is guilty as sin.
Here are the top three actions of the past few days that conspired to free her, while actually revealing how culpable she is, to anyone with a few working brain cells:
One: Just by chance, US Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, the highest law-enforcement official in the land, runs into Bill Clinton at the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. They talk in secret, as the FBI is wrapping up its email-scandal probe and is preparing to present its findings. This Lynch-Clinton meeting assures one and all that the fix is in. ‘Hillary’s guilty, but we’re going to find her innocent.’

15 COMMON SENSE REASONS TO FREE YOURSELF FROM POLITICS

‘Our continued participation in this circus performance we call politics feeds the illusion of its legitimacy.’
When even the highest agencies of the law cannot prosecute the political elite for their crimes, and when no mainstream media organization is willing to press for truth on obvious election fraud, it’s naive to expect the political system to improve just because we got involved and casted a vote for the least terrible of two shady candidates.
The rule of law in America is now effectively dead, and its time to hunker down and prepare for the worst, while doing everything possible to create a better society within our own communities, cities, states and world at large. Change happens on the ground level, and while getting worked up about American elections is a popular thing to do, it doesn’t really do much to free us from tyranny or a slave mentality.
It’s time to break free from the programming that tells us voting is our only opportunity to make a difference, because there are a million other things any of us can do to improve this place. Politics is distracting us, it’s fooling us, and it’s sucking our revolutionary and evolutionary potential into a vacuum of deceit, dirt, broken promises and lies.
‘Is it conceivable that our electoral system is cleverly designed to exhaust our positive, community-minded energies and to pacify our inherent human will to live the prosperous and peaceful lives we deserve? Could it be that the resources and energy we have applied to this social mechanism have been squandered in one of the greatest opportunity costs of all time?

KIM JONG-UN IS BINGE EATING TO DEAL WITH FEAR OF ASSASSINATION

The North Korean regime has a habit of popping into the news cycle a few times a year due to their horrifying antics. Either they’ll execute a few dissidents, arrest some tourists, or threaten the world with nuclear annihilation. The media puts them in the spotlight for a few weeks, but quickly moves on to more important things once we all remember how backward and irrelevant that country truly is.
But it seems like every time North Korea shows up in the news, their dear leader is fatter than he was before. Have you wondered why that is?

Depression, cynicism, passivity: a grand covert psyop

These are notes I made prior to authoring my collection, Power Outside The Matrix:
The feelings and states of mind in the headline above are people’s reactions to what’s going on in the world – but what’s going on in the world is being manipulated on a large scale. And one purpose of that manipulation is: producing those very feelings and states of mind – depression, cynicism, passivity.
This is amplified by the increased frequency of staged events; shootings, economic downturns, phony scare-tactic epidemics, absurd reversals of common-sense justice, and so on.
Psychological operations (psyops) are planned with the purpose of demoralizing populations. That’s the frequent goal. It’s intentional.
What’s at stake is the life-force of the individual.
If he keeps surrendering his own energy and space and passion and reason and imagination to these psyops, he falls into a black hole; or he decides to focus on some glazed-donut Disney version of rescue and salvation.
That’s the idea. That’s the plan.
Of course, all along the way, he cooks up excuses, excuses, excuses. These become his only weapons.
For the past 30 years and more, my work has moved in the opposite direction: become as aware as possible about what’s really going on in the world, behind the scenes – and then build on that knowledge to launch, with life-force and creative impulse, individual enterprises that surpass ‘the reality machine.’
The reality machine turns out nothing but status quo, status quo, and fake consensus and conformity.

CIA: Amaryllis Fox, Whistleblower or Secret Agent of Confusion?

Activist Post / JULY 3, 2016

Making quite the circuit on the Internet landscape is a new video purporting to show a former CIA agent speaking out against the manner in which the ‘war on terror’ is prosecuted and portrayed to the American public. The video (see below) has been shared and discussed thousands of times particularly within the alternative media community as evidence that the ‘war on terror’ is one big snowball of bad decisions and blowback.
The video, is a short clip of an interview conducted by AJ [Al Jazeera] with Amaryllis Fox, a former CIA Clandestine Services Officer, who makes a number of claims during the three-minute clip that range from the reasonable to the absurd.
While many alternative media outlets have hailed Fox’s video as ‘brave’ and Fox herself as a whistleblower, it would be wise to analyze her statements for what they are as opposed to praising them simply because they are being presented as ‘anti-establishment.’
Fox makes a surprising amount of claims for three minutes and she also manages to conflate issues, concepts, and people in a cleverly designed monologue that is clearly scripted for effect.
Fox begins by saying:
