    Plenty of Sources , by Ray Zwarich

    To all the Really Good Ones, and to all who yearn for the truth:

    I’m really not much interested in ‘conspiracy theories’, per se, but only silly Pollyanna-fools don’t understand that powerful political forces in our world, and in our nation, powerful people, are working together (conspiring) to try very hard to steer events in various directions that they think will benefit them.

    To ‘conspire’, (whose Latin root means ‘breathe with’), simply means to cooperate (breathe together with) other people to make certain things happen, (or try to), that are beneficial to all the ‘conspirators’.

    “Our real enemy has not yet revealed himself”… Michael Corleone. The End Game was fast approaching, and yet the aging Don Corleone (in the fable) had not yet ‘identified his enemy’. The people who make the most important decisions for the Ruling Elites are people whose names few of us would even recognize if we knew them. We will likely never be privy to what that sort of people do. Yet surely we all can ‘see’ that these decisions are being made by someone, somewhere, somehow, without meaningful input from the public.

    The Ruling Elites have ‘effective control’, but they do not control events. They have immense power to steer events, however. They have ‘effective control’ because they have so much more raw power than any other social agency. Their primary lever of control, (though hardly their only one), is their total (as in totalitarian) ownership and control of Mass Media. 

    The Ruling Elites are not a monolithic entity. They are comprised of various forces, many of which are themselves intense rivals, or even bitter enemies. These various forces are like Mafia ‘families’. They are blood-deep rivals/enemies, but they cooperate in their shared selfish interests. The Ruling Elites comprise a ‘syndicate’ of independent but cooperating forces. The Ruling Syndicate owns and controls all Mass Media. It controls our government through our legislative system of legalized bribery, and through its Mass Media power and control of the electoral system, which in 2020, actually became a Mass Media ‘conspiracy’ to actually censor the news in the most crucial days right before the election. (The Biden Laptop Story is still an ongoing mass scale ‘cover-up’. How long can they keep such an explosive story buried?).   

    What do we suppose that these people, these people who take a seat at the table when the Ruling Syndicate meets, (this is symbolic language, these people likely only rarely, if ever, actually ‘meet’), want to have happen in the US? 

    In their wilderness mountain aeries, sitting in large soft chairs covered in finely pleated Spanish leather, before magnificent native stone fireplaces two stories tall, or… in gilded cabins on luxurious yachts secreted away on some deserted private South Seas bay, or… boarding a rocket to travel to outer space in search of amusement… wherever such people find their peace to ponder their desires, what IS these people’s desire? 

    What are they trying to make happen? Do they WANT blood to flow in the street gutters? In their ongoing efforts to steer events, what is the ‘denouement‘ of our current threatening predicament  toward which they are trying to steer us? What is the outcome they are using all their power to try to create?

    There are almost a BILLION white people alive on the Earth. Many have theorized, (Caesar wrote about it at some length), that people become tougher and stronger, the further north they have evolved to live. The comfort of warmer climates does not ‘temper’ people, (as wood or steel can be tempered), as a more “bracing climate” (Caesar’s term) does. 

    It is clear to ‘see’ that events are progressing in a manner that will inevitably, (if it continues), polarize people into our most primitive human tribal enmities. White people, as a race, are not likely to ‘surrender’. When their collective back, as a race, is intentionally ‘put to the wall’, they will rise and fight back. Count on it… 

    In the US, these people, speaking of them as a tribal grouping, (‘white people’), are heavily armed.

    The US Ruling Syndicate is led by brilliantly capable people, most of whose names we likely have never even heard. Most of them are white people, (assuming that Ashkenazi Jews consider themselves white people), but only an infinitesimal percentage of white people are among their actual ranks. A larger percentage of white people are under their control, of course, often using manipulation of tribal emotions as a means of control. Many are their lackeys and sycophants among ALL races. People become loyal to the source of their ‘rice bowl’, to the source of their paycheck.  

    The Ruling Elites are mostly white people, but they are cruelly victimizing MOST white people quite as enthusiastically as they victimize any and all other people, of any race, they can. There are an estimated THREE TIMES as many poor white people in the US, (‘poor’ defined as living in ‘sub-middle class’ conditions), as there are poor African Americans.

    The US Ruling Elites are primarily of European heritage. They are primarily Caucasian people, including Ashkenazi Jewish people, (who have a different genetic heritage from the indigenous Sephardic Jews of the Middle East). But these Ruling Elites have ALWAYS been, since they acquired the power that superior technology brings, ‘equal opportunity exploiters’. 

    White Ruling Elites were enslaving white people for thousands of years before Stone Age sub-Saharan African black people first became a source of slaves.   

    Most of the population of Europe lived in some form of ‘indentured servitude’ for several thousands of years. They lived in constant jeopardy of tribal warfare, resulting in many indentured peasants being captured and sold into actual ‘slavery’. The more primitive tribes of Eastern Europe, the Slavic Tribes, were the sources of the ‘best’ slaves, so much so that their tribal identity, as ‘Slavs’, became our word for people owned by other people.

    It was only about 500 years ago that the more advanced human civilizations, (meaning Europeans, North Africans, Arabs, Persians, and Asians), developed the confidence in their technology to sail far enough across the ocean to encounter the primitive Stone Age people of sub-Saharan Africa and the Americas. But slavery was already practiced by those Stone Age people before the more advanced civilizations came. 

    Slavery was a virtually universal practice among humans for thousands of years. Looking back into the mists of Humanity’s evolution, the fact that some people owned other people, and used them as beasts of burden, was simply a fact of human life.

    Americans are not very well educated people. We have a relatively high literacy rate, but relatively few people, even ‘educated’ people who hold college degrees, know or understand even rudimentary Human History. Our torn nation seems on the verge of erupting into widespread and bloody social violence between factions of people so ignorant of Human History that they think most American white people’s ancestors were slave owners. 

    Most American white people’s ancestors were ‘slaves’ of some sort or degree. The people who came to America from Europe were fleeing horrific conditions of servitude. They made a dangerous journey seeking ‘freedom’. 

    Few of them found anything much resembling ‘freedom’ when they got here. Many arrived as indentured servants/indentured labor. In exchange for the cost of their passage, they owed a certain number of years of work to whomever had paid the passage, (or to whomever a broker who had paid their passage might have sold the indenturement rights to). 

    Conditions among white working people in America were horrific. Many white people lived in considerably worse physical conditions, (in terms of quality of housing, clothing, diet, etc), than the African chattel slaves of the South. They were paid wages that were too low to live more than a subsistence ‘beans and gruel in a hovel’ living on. 

    Chattel slaves were like cattle. They were valuable ‘owned’ property. (A strong African male was worth as much as $40,000, in today’s money). People tend to take better care of their valuable property. The white ‘wage slaves’ of the North were completely expendable. Sure… They were ‘free’. Nobody owned them. When one broke down, no ‘owner’ cared about her or him. They were kicked into the gutter to die. There were plenty more Paddy and Colleen O’Reillys, and Pietro and Maria Mongonis, and Grigori and Magda Petrovitches arriving on the docks every day.

    Children went to work in the mills at 8 or 9 years old. No bowl of gruel or beans was ‘free’. Every able body who could carry spools of thread from one machine to another was put to work, at 12 hour shifts, in noise so deafening that conversation was impossible, in air so thick with lint that the mill windows were sometimes mere rectangular orbs of fuzzy light. People commonly died in their mid-30s, after 25 years or so of choking to death from lung disease like miners choked on coal dust. Dead as young adults, leaving orphans behind toiling like… well… slaves… for their daily bowl of gruel and their bug-ridden bed.  

    Such conditions of life were still common for white working people, for the American Common Folk, when my own parents were grade school children. In the early 20th Century, in the lifetimes of many of our own parents and grandparents, conditions among white working people were so bad all over America that the Elites who controlled the government, (then as now), feared actual armed revolution. Armed uprisings, running gun battles between white working people and ‘the police’, and even against soldiers, were taking place in both the west, in places like Colorado, (look up ‘Ludlow Massacre‘, in 1913), and in the East.

    It’s bad enough that people do not know their own History, but it’s even worse when all-too-many do not yet even vaguely realize that they are being intentionally and deliberately deprived of that crucial knowledge of their own shared History and Culture. (They do not yet even know, even realize, that they are being intentionally subjected to someone else’s will by being intentionally deprived of the birthright of their own heritage and culture). 

    Our History and Culture, as a nation, and/or as Humanity, and/or as part of our various ethnic heritages, are crucial elements of self-awareness that people are being intentionally deprived of.

    This is REAL! This is REALLY happening!

    We are really being subjected to an immensely powerful ‘will’ that wants to pretend that it does not exist. That ‘will’ is now snarling and demanding that we, the Common Folk, must agree to pretend, along with ‘the will’, that ‘the will’, whose immense power is apparent to all, does not even exist. 

    Hey… Wait a dang minute here. This story was told long ago… Hans Christian published it in 1837, but he had read a source of the tale that traces back into antiquity, and through various other cultures, for a millennia, (or likely far more). A naked emperor is a naked emperor. Don’t be talkin’ at me, fool, ’bout his ‘new clothes’.  

    But alas… This is effin’ REAL!… This is really happening… If we do not agree to pretend that we live in a ‘democracy’, and that the 2020 election was a shining beacon of our great democracy, (all genuflect), that anointed kindly Uncle Joe and saved us all from the mega-Evil Trump Monster, if we do not touch the knee as we swear our fealty to this clearly delusional mythology, we have been ‘branded’ as people to be persecuted as ‘outlaws’, (as potential “domestic terrorists”), by the leader of the Party in power, ole Skinny Joe his own dang self. 

    Well… LOL… Okey doke, then… But a broke-down old silverback can’t help but wonder what these people who are trying to orchestrate events, who are now even often dropping their clown ‘democracy masks’ completely, baring their fangs and using all their power, even naked Totalitarian Censorship, (ask Greenwald), to try to control events, actually WANT to have happen?

    Do the powers that control our nation WANT the Common People’s blood to flow? Doesn’t it surely seem that way? They seem to want to goad every faction into a fever’s pitch of volatile anger.

    Why would they want to do that? 

    To people who are not ignorant of our Human History, the answer is very obvious. When the orange glow in the night sky is close enough to flicker against the clouds, people will BEG The Police to take over. (Yup… You’ve heard an old ape say it before). THAT is how naked Fascism rises. (People don’t merely welcome it. They BEG for it). 

    Once ‘martial law’ is declared, how will it ever be rescinded, except in ruins and ashes, (as it usually is)?  

    “Better to avoid it”, muses a thick-skulled old simian. Better to ‘wake up’ from both ‘wokeness’ and ‘anti-wokeness’. Once we ‘see’ the old ‘divide and rule’ trick for what it is, we will feel sheepish all ’round… Sure… Yea… Well… Eff it!… Grown adult citizens can have a good laugh at ourselves, slap our palms on our skulls, (trying to pound in the lesson), and just move on.

    When we awaken into new consciousness, isn’t that usually how it happens? A palm to the skull? A lesson learned? A shake of the head. And you just dust off and get on going again. (“That’s life… What the people say… You be ridin’ high in April… Shot down in May… ” Is that not as deep as any human wisdom? “You just get yourself up… You get back in the race”.

    Hey… We’re ALL just ‘poor dumb humans’… Ain’t nobody here, or anywhere, that hasn’t made plenty of mistakes. We can ‘awaken’ to actually decide that we folks maybe outta cut each other some slack?

    People who should be allies must first stop being enemies.

    Identify the Enemy… Hint to the Common Folks: It’s not each other. Google “Human History”. There’s plenty of sources on it.

    A Donkey is Not a Pig, by Ray Zwarich

    To all the Really Good Ones, and to all in peril, wherever ye may be:
    We are caught in an intentionally contrived battle between people who don’t fully understand their own circumstances. The people lined up in social ‘battle-order’ against one another are people who should be natural allies. But in our ‘post-reality’ era, (‘postreality’ is the next ‘logical’ progression of postmodernism, from which the craziness of Critical Theory has sprung), where ‘reality’ takes a back seat to ‘narrative’, these people live in their contrived ‘narratives’. Their point of contention is ‘reality’ itself, but actual reality means little (if anything) to them. 
    Whose reality is the REAL ‘reality’? How does that question sound to one who thinks both confused and enraged factions are lost in their own dead-end labyrinthian belief systems, which lead them FAR astray from actual ‘Reality’?

    These people were skillfully led into their belief systems. Belief systems are built… well… ‘systematically’. They are built one premise at a time. Postmodernism leads us to Post-Reality, which leads us to Critical Social Theory.

    Both directions, toward what is now called “the Left”, or toward the so-called “MAGA Bloc Right”, are dead-end traps. One faction cannot ‘rule over’ the other. One faction cannot ‘eradicate’ the other. The Left and the Right are ‘natural parties’. They arise from human biology. The most talented rise to form a class of Elites. Don’t we want our most talented people to run things?
    By the dictates of our human nature itself, the most talented rise to form a class of Elites.  
    Both sides are being led, primarily by the immense power of Mass Media, into ‘ideation’. Once the most basic premises are ingrained in ‘belief’, you begin to build the next premises on the last ones. Thus ‘ideation becomes ‘ideology’.  
    Ideology leads to action. 
    The CIA has been doing this, in nations all over the world, since Herbert Marcuse was sipping brandy and sharing his genius with Allen Dulles, in those heady post-WW2 days, as the US, emerging unscathed as the entire world lay in ruin, asserted its Empire, and the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) became the CIA, (’47).    
    Our nation has been rendered very nearly to the point of widespread bloody violence and civil war, (Antifa mobs fought MAGA bloc mobs in the streets of Portland yesterday), over a clash between ‘belief cults’. We are witnessing the ‘Clash of the Narratives’, (neither of which has much resemblance to actual reality). These contrived (socially ‘engineered’) groups are fighting to impose competing versions of ‘false reality’ on each other.  
    Many of us have constructed elaborate ‘belief systems’, to which we hold with the certainty of passionate self-righteousness, but in which the actual facts and events of our lives, and of History itself, are always ‘optional’. We filter our thoughts through our Desire, rather than by Reason. If ‘the facts’ are inconvenient, we either ignore them, or simply change them, to ‘believe’ things that better suit what we ‘want’. It is Desire that drives Belief.  
    Whatever we may believe, most all of us surely know that we are facing a serious predicament. Humanity has arrived at a near-term existential crisis. We surely stand the best chance of favorably meeting the challenges ahead if we can become more self-aware. Only objective self-awareness can bring our ‘belief systems’ into better compliance with actual Reality.
    Reality, actual reality, comprised of the daily events and circumstances of our lives, (stretching back as far as we can ‘see’), is our ‘friend’. The truth, whatever it may be, is our most powerful potential ally. 
    We need to be capable of objectivity. We need to be able to inhabit other points of view besides our own. When we can “see ourselves” through other people’s eyes, that is when we can begin to become self-aware. 
    We don’t have to ‘agree with’ another point of view in order to ‘inhabit’ it. We can understand other people’s motivations without judging them. When we can ‘see’ what we look like to others, when we understand why people think and/or feel whatever they do, that is when, and how, we can learn about ourselves. 
    When both sides are imbued with self-righteous fervor and moral certainty, when each side thinks it is morally superior to the other, the potential for violence is much higher. The more self-righteous people are, the more willing we are to do evil to those whom we consider our moral inferiors. 
    This is human biology. This is pure animal ‘tribalism’. Loyalty is a tribal virtue. Loyalty is not ‘rational’. Loyalty knows nothing of ‘reason’. Loyalty simply compels us to fight for our ‘tribe’.

    What a field day for the heat
    A thousand people in the street
    Singing songs and carrying signs
    Mostly say, “Hooray for our side”   

                               – S Stills  A “field day for the heat”. Indeed. (Divide and Rule. It’s been going on for 10,000 years).

    Caliban is trying to have us all ‘awaken’ into a New Awareness. Caliban, broke-down old ape that he is, wants everyone to ‘see’ that our plight is not hopeless… This can happen… We can awaken… Is it more than faith?
    The world’s Ruling Elites are themselves in a desperate plight. They have immense power to steer events, but they do not control what happens. They have successfully divided the Common People into mutually hateful and self-righteous warring factions, but they are also desperate to find a ‘way forward’. Their lives are at stake as well as ours. They know this.
    How do the Ruling Elites themselves hope these dire circumstances will resolve themselves? What do they have planned to wreak on our lives? They use massive violence, without a trace of moral conscience, against millions of people in other nations to assure their own ongoing Authority. When gunfights begin to proliferate in our streets, what are our Ruling Elites “prepared to do”?   
    Things are NOT going well for them, after all. They show clear signs of their own desperation. Bullets of ‘flop sweat’ are falling from their brows, as it’s becoming apparent to them that their position ‘on the board’ is a losing one. 
    The only way for them to ‘win’ is to ‘take everyone with them’. What kind of ‘victory’ is that? Do they REALLY believe they can ‘rule the world’, as is their officially stated (written) policy position that they should, and MUST? Do they REALLY believe that the entire world is going to ‘surrender’ to US Power?
    “Amerika uber alles!”? Do we share that ‘dream’ with our Ruling Elites? 
    The US Ruling Elites are ‘getting richer’, sure, (faster than ever), but they’re not stupid. They know it’s just ‘paper’. It’s hardly worth stuffing into their already bursting vaults. These people already have, quite literally, more paper money than they know what to do with. Any time they need more, they just back up a semi-trailer to the Federal Reserve and get more. (I’m ‘old-fashioned’… actually it just takes a few keystrokes on a computer terminal). They can get as much as they want. (The nominal ‘interest rate’ currently remains only a ‘formality’ above 0%, at .25% ). It’s (literally) ‘free money’. 
    The US Ruling Elites have used the US Dollar’s world domination, as the world’s ‘reserve currency’, (especially its status as the ‘petro-dollar’), as a deadly weapon. We print paper money to finance our mega-military that is deployed all over the world. We are only able to float our massive debt, and our now yearly deficit of over a TRILLION dollars, ($28.7 TRILLION total National Debt in a $21.4 trillion dollar economy, our debt is 134% of GDP), because the US Dollar’s reserve currency status creates a demand for dollars in all other nation’s national treasuries. (Nations pay their bills to each other in US Dollars, so they need to hoard Dollars).
    If the Dollar loses its reserve currency status, nations will no longer need dollars to make their international payments. When they don’t need them any more, they’ll ‘dump’ them. A glut of US dollars will set off hyper-inflationary pressures on the Dollar. The US will then no longer be able to just ‘print money’ to maintain our Empire, which is dependent on US Military might and ruthless cruelty for its authority.
    We surely cannot be surprised that other nations are reacting defensively to our continuous and brutal siege warfare, (economic sanctions), as well as to our brandishing of our raw, ruthless (and deficit financed) military power  all over the Earth, by seeking to erode, and eventually destroy, the dominant international status of the US Dollar. Nations that represent well over half the world’s population, led by China and Russia, are leading the way in a concerted focused effort to break the ‘reserve’ status of the US Dollar.

    If they succeed, (as seems inevitable), the US will no longer be able to pay our bills by running a faster printing press. The Federal Reserve will no longer be able to give away ‘free money’ to the Ruling Elites, so they can loan it to the government at a profit, (as they do now). 
    Interest on the National Debt is projected to be $378 billion in 2021. The current interest rates on 10 year US Treasury Notes is 1.24%. 10 Year Treasury Rates were almost 16% in 1980. That’s almost 13 times what they are today. Let’s see, $378 billion (current interest being paid out) times 13, is almost $5 TRILLION per year. We have to borrow just to pay the current ‘vig’. We can’t float that boat. 
    Get the picture? That’s how ‘hyperinflation’ happens. Chicken feed, (Poulin layer pellets), is up to $17 per 50 lb bag. It was $13.40 at the beginning of the year. That’s a 27% rise in the cost of a very basic commodity, (feed grain), since the beginning of 2021. The inflation rate in January was 1.4%. It was 5.4% in July. If inflation rises, no one will loan money unless interest rates rise as well. (If inflation rates are 5%, a lender has to charge 5% interest just to break even).    
    The Ruling Elites can ‘see’ that their power is waning. The World is openly rebelling against US Empire. The China-Russia Alliance is growing. It is asserting itself in rapidly expanding alliances with traditional US ‘allies’.  
    Is power not the true measure of wealth? If the US Dollar loses its ‘reserve currency’ status, many ‘Great Fortunes’ would be reduced to paper. The impact on the US economy could be severe in the extreme, (as in large numbers of gaunt people roaming the streets with nowhere to go, as me ole buddy Jack London described so graphically in ‘People of the Abyss’). 
    The US Ruling Elites have done too many flagrant things now that the whole world knows that their obviously malignant motivations are not benign. Only the most gullible are any longer fooled by their absurd ‘mask’ of ‘spreading democracy’ and ‘promoting human rights’. If the US Ruling Elites force the issue by provoking a final fatal war, the US will be ‘the villain’ in such a war. 
    The US is ‘The Empire’. The ‘Jedi Warriors’ will be on the OTHER side.
    Get it? If you don’t ‘get’ that, you are not yet ‘self-aware’.
    It is the US Elites’ openly stated intention that the US Ruling Elites, as the powers that control the US Government, and all the US Mass Media, must rule over the entire Earth. Any nation that resists subjecting itself to US ‘Authority’ will itself be subjected to US Wrath. Either by siege warfare, (economic sanctions), or by dropping bombs on them, the US will start killing large numbers of their citizens if any nation dares defy the Authority of the US Empire.
    The nations that are resisting subjecting themselves to US World Rule, led primarily by China and Russia, are openly and officially stating their own desires that the world cannot be “uni-polar”. The world must be “multi-polar”, with power shared among nations through democratic negotiations.
    US citizens don’t know that, because our centrally owned Mass Media don’t tell us what their owners don’t want us to know. 
    Few of us even know that China and Russia do not reflect our animosity toward them back at us. Neither China nor Russia wants to be our ‘enemy’. They both constantly declare, in both official statements and in more informal discussions and attitudes, that they want to be our “partners”.
    They want ALL the world’s nations to have a voice in how the world is run. They advocate for democratic negotiations between sovereign nations. Understanding that the government of EACH nation represents its OWN citizens’ aspirations first, and directly, China and Russia, and the nations in their orbit, believe that ALL nations are obligated to also consider and respect the interests of ALL other nations, not just their own. 
    The US Ruling Elites HATE that very idea. The US wants to impose what our Ruling Elites call “Rules Based Order” on the rest of all Humanity, with the US unilaterally ‘dictating’ the Rules, enforced by deadly US military and economic aggression. 
    We ALL live under a shadow of Mass Media propaganda. Can’t we try to inhabit other points of view? Can’t we at least TRY to “see ourselves as others see us”? Can’t we at least try to become self-aware?
    How do we think the rest of the world’s people now ‘see’ the US, as we snarl and growl out our deadly determination to Rule Over Planet Earth, as we boast about being “the best country in the world” even as our society seems to be exploding into the chaos of moral corruption that infects every American public institution? 
    Anyway… The Ruling Elites’ immense propaganda power, their complete control of Mass Media, is actually eroding somewhat, as ever fewer people hold ‘trust’ in Mass Media. Reportedly, only 29% of Americans trust that Mass Media tells the truth. That’s 71% of Americans who no longer believe what they read in the NY Times, or especially in the Bezos/CIA handshake outfit, the Washington Post.
    [Too few ever even mention that Bezos is business partners with the CIA. Amazon Web Services was not the lowest bidder for the contract to manage cloud data storage for the CIA. Bezos bought WaPo within days (a coupla weeks?) of signing the lucrative CIA contract. $600 million to get started. Could be worth many billions ‘down the line’. He paid less than $300 million for WaPo, (lock, stock, and barrel, as they say).] 
    They don’t really need our ‘trust’, however. They just need our ‘compliance’. People generally will comply until the negative consequences of compliance exceed the perceived benefits of resistance and/or revolt.
    Their power lies not primarily in their control of information. It lies in their control of us, their psychological control of The People. We are each bombarded with an estimated 6,000 to 10,000 commercial messages every single day. Any direction we turn our heads, we encounter multiple commercial messages that impact and register in our consciousness, (even if subliminally).
    Advertising goes beyond merely understanding people’s motivations. It seeks to formulate people’s motivations. Advertizing seeks to control what we WANT. If y7ou control what people ‘want’, you control who they ‘are’.  
    The Ruling Elites’ desire to start a Race War only reveals their desperation. A Race War will be VERY dangerous for them. They are apparently counting on their own ability to steer events in ways advantageous to them, but the risks to themselves are significant. Their willingness to take such risks seems to show that the alternative(s) they are trying to avoid are worse, and that the Elites themselves think that those alternatives may be imminent. 
    The Elites can ‘steer’ a Race War because they have operatives, on both the ‘Woke’ so-called ‘Left’, and among the MAGA Bloc Right, in effective control, or at least able to exert steering influence, on both sides.  
    They heavily fund both sides. 
    In a Race War, people fight each other. In a Revolution, people fight the Ruling Elites. If you were the Ruling Elites, wouldn’t starting a Race War be the perfect means to completely distract people’s attention from the gross injustices in our economy that actually CAUSE deadly tribal rancors, (racism being but one)?
    They want to start a Race War? Fueled by our most primitive tribal passions? Okey doke, then… Will we be slinking through the jungle toward sleeping villages, machetes ready to express our deadly tribal hatreds, thinking of sleeping babies as “cockroaches”, (as has happened before, as it did in ’94)?
    If the Ruling Elites are willing to promote that degree of ‘mayhem’, that degree of primitive tribal animosity among our own citizens, as the Mass Media so obviously and constantly do, are they ruthless enough to ‘gun people down’ in the streets when Mass Media-aroused Hysterical Mobs rampage? (Actual gunfights took place in Portland, Oregon, yesterday). 
    And even assuming they are willing to be that ruthless, would the people in uniform carrying the guns obey their top command officers? Would the individual police, or US or NG soldiers, open fire on American citizens?
    Better (maybe the ‘top command officers’ figure? quien sabe?) to get armed mobs rampantly patrolling, assault rifles bristling from the beds of pickup trucks? Gangs of thugs from every corner, red bandanas, or blue, or Antifa-black, walking arrogantly, guns in belts, razors in boots, (daggers in teeth?), just looking for trouble, just looking for someone on whom to unload all their pent-up rage?
    Defund the Police? Yea… Sure… People will be begging the Police. THAT is how naked Fascism rises. When people fear for their immediate security, when danger immediately threatens, when the orange horizon in the night sky gets closer, people won’t merely ‘demand’ the Police. They will be ‘begging’. 
    The Authorities certainly impressively garrisoned the US Government after the January 6th events. When a government bristles arms at its own people, is that not a clear threat of overt tyranny? 
    Just like they learned to do in Baghdad, they built and garrisoned a ‘Green Zone’ in DC. Heavily armoured troops carried assault rifles. They reportedly garrisoned the DC Green Zone with 25,000 troops.
    Surely we’ve all seen lots of video of the events of January 6th. Anyone who is pretending that they believe that what happened was an actual attempt to seize control over the US Government, that it was an actual “insurrection”, an actual ‘coup attempt’, an actual attempt to overthrow the US Government to seize power, is just not fooling anyone.
    No rational person in their right mind could come to that conclusion.
    No rational person could witness the events that took place on January 6th, and rationally decide that an attempt had been made to seize control over the US Government. Evidence has been presented that considerable numbers of ‘provoking operatives’, including possibly FBI operatives, were disguised among the crowd at the crucial moment when it became a ‘mob’. 
    Cui bono? The assault on the Capitol Building would have been relatively easy for any organized entity to ‘provoke’. Mere handfuls of people in key locations, and those locations might likely have been easy to predict. 
    Trying to ‘trace’ the “provocateurs” is likely a dead-end. Who has benefited most from these clownish ‘legal charges’ that the illegal breach of the Capitol Building was an attempt to overthrow the US Government?
    Nobody ‘in their right mind’ could believe that. 
    What we are witnessing is a ‘gaslight conspiracy’. One Political Party, with the support and participation of less than half the nation, has decided to ‘all pretend together’ that they all believe something that no rational person in their right mind could possibly believe… LOL… And they really expected that this would work?… They thought that they could ‘gaslight’ over 100 million people en masse? 
    Well… They’re still trying… Bless their hearts, anyway… They can be dogged… These people are themselves, en masse, by mass agreement with themselves, delusionally insane. They are a very large and very powerful ‘belief cult’. They are dangerously passionate in the manner of their beliefs… They ‘reason’ with their emotions… Their passions always win… In their belief cult reality they believe that they are ‘morally superior’. Self-Righteousness is the reward of cult membership. Drink the kool-aid, and you too can become a ‘morally superior’ person.  
    And around and around it goes. Where it stops nobody knows. Nuclear Armeggedon anyone? Or environmental poison?  
    If one Political Party decides that all its adherents must now call a donkey a pig, and start treating donkeys as if they were pigs, do they really think people will start thinking that donkeys are pigs?  
    We ‘SAW’ what happened in the 2020 election. You canNOT erase it from our minds. (It’s like they think they have the power of the ‘little flashy thing‘ in ‘Men in Black’).
    The Events of January 6 were illegal. Some people are guilty of breaking in. They should be punished. In many cases, however, the Police simply stood aside, and most people just walked in. People became a ‘mob’. They ‘rampaged’. They reveled in their defiance of authority because they were outraged by the perceived ‘injustice’ of a ‘rigged’ election. They were clearly “petitioning their government for a redress of grievances”, as the Constitution allows. 
    The 2020 Election was heavily ‘rigged’. Somewhere’s north of 100-120 million of us, American people from all over the so-called “political spectrum”, SAW what effing HAPPENED!  
    A donkey is not a pig. 
    Our nation is now ruled over by a regime that has openly declared that anyone who stubbornly continues to believe what they ‘saw’, with their own damn eyes, is a criminal ‘outlaw’ in their own nation, (a potential “domestic terrorist”). 
    There are as many as 120 million Americans who could think that could refer to them. 

    “Wait. What? Didn’t this half-senile old goat just SAY, (out LOUD, fer crissakes), that anyone who thinks what I think is a danger to our nation, and should be persecuted as a “domestic terrorist”? “

    LOL… Okey doke, then… Plumb Half of the American citizenry have been declared “outlaws” by the POTUS. (ding! cuckoo! ding! cuckoo!).
      Look, folks… I think Trump is a real creep. He’s also a charlatan of great skill who has a LOT of people believing his lies. 

    The thing is, Biden is worse. MUCH worse. Trump is an individual. A classic ‘lone wolf’. ‘Biden’ is a ‘machine’. Biden is the propped up figurehead of the Democratic Party Machine. 
    I think the Trump forces would have ‘stolen the election’ if they could have. It sure wasn’t moral scruples that stopped them. The Mass Media are just too powerful. Our entire electoral process has been reduced to a Reality TV show. The people who do this, (what people are those, exactly?), are VERY good at ‘stage managing’ the process. 
    The 2020 Election was a Mass Media ‘staged’ Coup d’Etat. Voting and vote counting irregularities aside, the Biden Laptop Cover-up, alone, in the last crucial days before the election, defined the 2020 US Election as a Mass Media Coup. This is an ongoing cover-up. If this was Trump and his kid, the Mass Media would be sensationalizing this story, instead of conspiring to ‘bury’ it. 
    Our current Biden Regime did NOT gain office through anything even resembling a “free and fair election”. (Ron Unz’s work on this remains the best I’ve seen).
    If the entire edifice of Mass Media ‘stonewalls’ a ‘big story’, if they all refuse to even acknowledge the reality of events as they are known to have happened, does that make ‘reality’ itself any less ‘true’?  
    The truth, the actual truth, (whatever it may be), is always our most powerful potential ally, even when it may shine an uncomfortable light on us. Self-awareness can be excruciatingly difficult. (It doesn’t always ‘tickle’). 
    A donkey is not a pig. 
    The more that the Regime that ‘won’ a crooked election tells me that it is, the more that they insist that the stink-ass clown show we ‘saw’ was a “free and fair election”, the more that such a Regime sounds tyrannical and Orwellian to me.  
    Hope all are well and strong, or have someone to ‘lean on‘ if you’re not,
