Lying Wonders

hillary“Obviously, Hillary Clinton is a demon from outer space.”

This, according to a poster on the Landover Baptist Church’s message board.  As some may know, the Landover Baptist Church is fictional and its website parodies Fundamentalist Christians, much in the same way the Church of the SubGenius is a satire of Scientology, Evangelicals, etc.  Some obviously do not get the humor and have attacked these groups over the years as real cults.  Back when I was a student of the occult and had an unfavorable view of Christianity, I regularly tuned in to a local college radio station to hear the SubGenius Hour of Slack “radio ministry” program, a mind-warping collage of crazed sermons, radio drama, underground music and, most importantly, calls for financial support.  More than parody genuine Christianity, the humor was directed squarely at quack televangelists, but also the wide variety of UFO and doomsday cults preaching the return of the “ancient ones.”

This is where it gets tricky, because this is sorta what I believe in (not really).  If you’re confused by any of this, then please continue reading, because I promise… it gets weirder.  I will admit, the conclusions drawn here are highly speculative, but the parallels are quite interesting to consider, none-the-less.  Is Hillary Clinton really a demon from outer space?  In this case, maybe the truth really is stranger than fiction.

In the Spring of 1946, a series of occult rituals were performed by brilliant rocket engineer and chemist Jack Parsons, founder of Jet Propulsion Laboratories (JPL) and his partner at the time, New Age charlatan L. Ron Hubbard, who would later go on to write the bestseller Dianetics and establish the Church of Scientology.  At the time, both men were protegés of infamous British occultist Aleister Crowley, known in the tabloids of the day as the “Most Wicked Man in the World.”  The series of magickal rituals were named Babalon WorkingIn Crowley’s religion of Thelema, the goddess Babalon represents the divine feminine and is alternately referred to as the Scarlet Woman, the Great Mother and the Mother of Abominations.  Crowley’s Babalon is an amalgamation of various goddesses worshiped in the ancient world: the Babylonian Ishtar, Sumerian Inanna, Greek Aphrodite and Egyptian Isis.

The goal of Babalon Working was to incarnate the goddess Babalon in human form.  In theory, this would be accomplished by opening a dimensional gateway through which the goddess Babalon would pass.  The ritual utilized sex magick (ceremonial sexual acts which need not be detailed here) as a sort of astral copulation, paired with a multitude of invocations, by which a “magickal child” would be produced.  The rituals were loosely based on descriptions found in Crowley’s novel Moonchild, published in 1929.

But why would Parsons and Hubbard seek to sire such an entity?  Crowley himself was skeptical and warned Parsons about potential overreactions to the magick he was performing.  In a letter to Karl Germer, head of the O.T.O. lodge (Ordo Templi Orientis) in the United States, Crowley writes, “Apparently Parsons… or somebody is producing a Moonchild.  I get fairly frantic when I contemplate the idiocy of these louts.”  So what was the ultimate motive behind Babalon Working?  According to authors Tom Horn and Cris Putnam in their book, On the Path of the Immortals:

 “… the working explicitly stated the goal of transforming traditional values.  The rituals were aimed at incarnating the archetypal divine feminine and changing culture through her influence.  It is a matter of record that feminism, homosexuality and pantheistic monism were sowed into public consciousness from the ivory towers of academia shortly subsequent to Parsons’ dark invocation.”

In his biography, Parsons declared Babalon Working a success and proclaimed that Babalon would be born approximately nine months later, “Babalon is incarnate upon the earth today, awaiting the proper hour for her manifestation.”  In Immortals, Putnam goes on to say:

“… accordingly, if they’re correct, one would expect a female child to be born either in 1946 or 1947.  Ritual magick aimed at the birth of the archetypal divine feminine … may have more to do with feminism and the mandatory prohibition of all forms of distinction, including gender and sexual preference.  An influential feminist born in 1947 offers the most promise for identifying the putrid and Satanic fruit of Parsons’ infamous ritual.”

In his plan to destroy the human race, a principle tactic Satan employs is to disrupt and uproot traditional values and institutions.  This would include things that human societies have held as fundamental for thousands of years.  Central among these would be the family, composed of a man and woman bound in marriage and their children, often including grandparents and grandchildren as generational extensions living in the same home.  Of primary importance to the survival of the family unit are gender roles, which insure first, procreation and second, an efficient household and village economy.  In other words, the men, who are designed with more physical strength and stamina, engage in hunting, building and warfare, while the women, who are designed with a more nurturing instinct, rear the children, forage, collect water, prepare meals, etc.  They represent different but complimentary roles.  In larger civilizations these tasks become more and more specialized; goods and services are swapped or traded in a free market system.  This is a natural progression of the system God Himself established in the Garden of Eden.

If Babalon, as an agent of Satan, was made manifest upon the Earth in order to transform traditional values then we might expect her to possess certain personality traits, foremost of these would be an unnatural lust for power, arising from the original curse of Genesis 3:16:

Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

Many Bible scholars explain that the woman’s desire as described here is not a sexual desire, but a desire to exert authority.  This is frustrated by her submissive position in relationship to her husband, who seeks to rule over her.  I feel I should point out, lest any of my female readers take offense, this was not our Creator’s original intent, but a punishment for sin.  Of course, Adam sinned as well; his curse was to toil over the land and exhaust himself until death returned him to the dust from which he was made- all the while having to endure his wife’s persistent nagging! [Genesis 3: 17-19]

This is the main impetus behind the modern feminist movement, which does not promote equality between the sexes, but seeks to reverse the natural order established by God.  This is a rebellious undertaking, an emotional reaction against the curse, which denies the original sin of Adam and Eve and thus aligns itself with Luciferian ideology.  God, in his mercy, seeks to restore a sense of order to mankind’s fallen state, which can be achieved through obedience to the Law.  But with each generation, man becomes more wicked, continuing to lust after the knowledge represented by the Tree.  Luciferians hold that YHWH is a tyrannical god, who unjustly restricts mankind and demands unwavering worship.  Lucifer is seen as a liberator of mankind, offering him the keys to illumination and immortality.  But this is a lie and a trap.  This false characterization of YHWH does not account for His love and mercy, which would later be proven through the sacrifice of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to atone for the sins of all mankind [John 3:16].

Intricately tied into Lucifer’s strategy is the need to confuse traditional gender roles- a trend which has greatly accelerated in recent decades, primarily in the secularized West.  Today, feminism in its extremist form goes far beyond the ideas of equal pay for equal work or women’s suffrage, but promotes the idea of a “liberated woman,” who not only refuses to be the man’s help meet [Genesis 2:18], but rejects the necessity of men altogether, assuming roles normally reserved for men and rejecting many of the roles reserved for women, namely childbearing and homemaking.  Gender confusion, homosexuality, fornication, contraception, abortion, divorce and a general rejection of traditional family life ultimately leads to a decline in the birth rate.  All of this constitutes a spiritual virus spread by none other than Satan himself, for the sole purpose of destroying the human race.

Our Scarlet Woman would necessarily be one who struggled greatly in “a man’s world” to achieve her power, perhaps even in the shadow of a powerful man.  She would have been instrumental in the shifting of cultural values, the sexual revolution, gay rights, legalized abortion and even Statism, which promotes the state, not God, as the ultimate authority over the lives of individuals.  Because Satan is a deceiver, it follows that Babalon would possess a deceitful nature and be highly skilled at twisting the truth to fit her hostile agenda.  There is a parallel in the Holy Scriptures to the goddess Babalon, and that is, of course, the Whore of Babylon, which represents the final, apocalyptic incarnation of the divine prostitute [Revelation 17].

Hillary Clinton was born on October 26th, 1947.  Now, this doesn’t mean Hillary Clinton is the Whore of Babylon and it doesn’t necessarily mean she is Parsons’ and Hubbard’s moonchild, but one doesn’t need to dig deep to know Hillary Clinton’s policy stances.  She is a rabid supporter of abortion rights and the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.  She has praised Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger- a contemptible human being by most standards of decency- as a role model for women.  George Grant in his book Grand Illusions: The Legacy of Planned Parenthood, in reference to Sanger’s paper, The Woman Rebel writes:

“It was an eight-sheet pulp with the slogan ‘No Gods! No Masters!’ emblazoned across the masthead.  She advertised it as a ‘paper of militant thought,’ and militant it was indeed.  The first issue denounced marriage as a ‘degenerate institution,’ capitalism as ‘indecent exploitation,’ and sexual modesty as ‘obscene prudery.'” [pg. 53]

In a speech at the 2015 Women in the World Summit, Hillary Clinton said, “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”  This, for the sake of expanding women’s access to “reproductive health care”- in other words, abortion.  Again, the agenda is transforming traditional values.

Hillary appears less ideological when it comes to so-called gay marriage, having openly opposed it as recently as 2013.  When it became politically convenient, Hillary swung to support gay marriage, hoping to align herself with a changing Democratic base, increasingly under the influence of LGBT interests.  I surmise this was to shore up her chances in the upcoming presidential election.  Is it any wonder some of the most influential people in the LGBT community stand with her?  She has great potential to effect them as a powerful political figure. With her support for unbridled immigration from the Muslim world however, she stands to betray them, as devout Muslims have absolutely no tolerance for homosexuality.  And need I mention the reprehensible and cruel treatment of women under Islam?  Hillary Clinton, champion of women’s rights, would serve to betray them as well.  Because, underneath her progressive veneer, she is nothing but a channel for confusion, destruction and death.

I have written before about the radical Left and their alliance with Islam; both believe in totalitarian government and both share a common enemy- Christianity.  Unfortunately for those caught up in the LGBT movement, they may find themselves abandoned by the Left as Muslims in the West push for an expansion of Sharia Law.  As a Christian, I do consider homosexual behavior a sin against God.  I’m not talking about same-sex attraction necessarily and I do think some of our notions about gender roles can be restrictive.  But I certainly do not advocate for killing homosexuals and transgender people or otherwise discriminating against them.  I advocate for spreading the Gospel to them, which they are free to accept or reject.  In so much as their movement doesn’t seek to overthrow the natural foundations of society, then their right to exist and live freely should be protected.  Allowing for the spread of militant Islam would endanger these freedoms.  Still, progressives defend Islam and unchecked Muslim migration to the West.  In most instances, this is due to ignorance about Islam, which is not simply a religion but a political system, which is rooted in conquest and fundamentally incompatible with our Constitutional Republic.  Remember, the devil is a liar [2 Corinthians 4:4].  We must not be ignorant of his schemes.  Behind the facade of LGBT rights is a far darker plan.

Hillary Clinton has, as a matter of principle, demonstrated support for socialist policies- an outgrowth of her formative years as a disciple of Saul Alinsky, who, in his book, Rules For Radicals, published in 1971, acknowledges Lucifer as the first radical:

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”

Again, the end result of advancing these policies is the empowerment of Satan’s kingdom, which is constantly at war with God’s kingdom. Despite her constant banter about her “Methodist faith,” Clinton’s policies are a direct threat to religious liberty and Christians in particular.  Notice how she never talks about her faith in Jesus Christ?

Far from being a peace-loving liberal, Hillary Clinton- especially during her tenure as Secretary of State under Barack Obama- made even the most hardcore neo-cons envious with her annihilation of Libya and the fomenting of radical Islam throughout the Middle East, brilliantly re-branding it as a democratic uprising.  Clinton also laid the groundwork for the overthrow of the democratically elected government of Ukraine in 2014, when her chief spokesperson for the State Department, Victoria Nuland was promoted to Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs by Obama in 2013.  Nuland promptly made the coup in Ukraine her top priority, setting up our current adversarial position with Russia.

Hillary Clinton is a con-artist.  Her and her husband, Bill Clinton, through the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative, systematically robbed poor Haitians of billions in aid following the 7.1 magnitude earthquake that devastated the island nation in 2010, by funneling aid money meant to help Haiti recover and rebuild into contracts for the Clinton’s corporate friends.  Homes that were promised for the Haitian people were never built, job creation fell far short of expectations, and Haiti is still in dire straits six years later.

There comes a point where one moves beyond political spin, beyond omission, beyond misspeaking, beyond even careful wordings and cover-ups to protect individuals and government secrets.  There comes a point where lying becomes an entity.  Hillary Clinton is such an entity.  And I do mean this in a Christian context; I believe she has been inhabited, and is controlled by a spirit of deception- a demon.  The woman is incapable of speaking without lying.  Every statement, every sentence, every word that flows from her mouth is a purposeful deception.

Then there is this little nugget, found in Jack Parson’s writings describing the Babalon Working: “And within seven years of this time, BABALON, THE SCARLET WOMAN HILARION will manifest among ye, and bring this my work to its fruition.” According to Parsons, this message, part of The Manifesto of the Antichrist, was communicated to him from Babalon herself.  The distinction between Babalon and Hilarion is not clear to me.  But while these channeled messages could easily be dismissed as the narcissistic rantings of a disturbed person, I have to wonder if Parsons really achieved- in Hillary- what he hoped to accomplish in 1946.  He would never live to witness her rise to power; in 1952 he died as a result of injuries suffered from a chemical explosion in his Pasadena, California workshop.

Like her father the devil, she comes to steal, kill and destroy [John 10:10].  Can anyone identify another prominent feminist, born in 1946-47 having the same degree of political power and influence as Hillary Clinton?  Interestingly enough, Crowley keeps coming up in connection to Hillary.  As the most recent Wikileaks data dump reveals, there are strange references to Thelema in the hacked emails of John Podesta- Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman and former advisor to Barack Obama- as well as correspondence between John Podesta’s brother, Tony Podesta and Marina Abramovic, the shock artist known for her occultic performances.  According to former Clinton hitman, Larry Nichols, Hillary regularly traveled to California to participate in ceremonies as part of a witch’s coven.  At the very least it appears that Hillary is shadowed by some very peculiar individuals.  She certainly appears to embody much of what Parsons’ and Hubbard were shooting for as the incarnation of Babalon.  Considering her record, her policies and her unbalanced persona, a further investigation of these connections seems reasonable, but unlikely.  No, these inquiries are reserved for brave researchers of the fringe… and certain curious bloggers.

Jade Helm: What’s In A Name?

jade_helmSpeculation about Jade Helm 15 has been mushrooming ever since Infowars broke the story back in March about the Army training exercise set for this summer.  1,200 Green Berets, Navy Seals and other special forces personnel will participate in the eight week drill, over a ten state area.  Most of the outrage has focused on a map of the Southwestern United States, included with the US Army Special Operations Command document on Jade Helm, identifying Utah and Texas as “hostile territory.”  This has lead to concerns the military training is targeting Americans in these traditionally conservative states.  The mainstream media immediately moved to discredit Alex Jones and Infowars by falsely claiming he said Jade Helm was a “martial law takeover.”  While Jones never made such a statement, he did say it appeared to be training designed to engage the American people, not unlike numerous other exercises which are steadily on the rise.

Perhaps in reaction to the unanticipated response from the American public, it seems the military has rolled out Jade Helm ahead of the official July 15th start date. Military exercises within Jade Helm states and elsewhere have already begun, most notably Operation Raider Focus out of Fort Carson in Colorado and urban warfare drills in Flint, Michigan.  Earlier this year, US Special Operations Forces along with Broward County police practiced detaining American citizens in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.  These are just a few examples of the frightening increase of military activity on American soil- outside of military bases and in the “human domain.”

According to Army officials the training will require some participants to be in “civilian attire” and drive “civilian vehicles” and “some individuals may conduct suspicious activities designed to prepare them for complex environments overseas.”  The Army has repeatedly stated that the training is to help solders familiarize themselves with different terrain overseas.  But if the training is designed to prepare them for deployment overseas- say Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. then why train in American cities and towns?  Why attempt to blend in to the civilian population?  Why are farmers and ranchers being approached and offered money to utilize their land?  It’s clear the military is not being honest about what Jade Helm really represents, but I think we’re asking the wrong questions here.

While the debate over Jade Helm continues, Americans from all over the country are reporting a large-scale movement of military equipment, tanks, armored vehicles, humvees, cannons, razor wire, helicopters and more.  People have also observed an unusual amount of construction equipment being transported around the country, as well as FEMA buses, ambulances and mass-casualty units.  Countless pictures and videos have been taken by ordinary citizens in the last several weeks showing military convoys traveling US highways and military vehicles being transported by train, not to mention what appears to be an uptick in helicopter surveillance and aircraft flyovers.  Is this activity related to Jade Helm?  Is Jade Helm a cover for this unprecedented deployment of equipment?  Or are we dealing with something else?  Is Jade Helm just one component of a larger strategy of domination, that includes repositioning of military assets?

Surprisingly, not enough attention has been given to the name “Jade Helm” or its slogan, “Master The Human Domain.”  But herein lies the key to understanding what this training is all about.  While this has been pointed out before, it is worth noting that jade is a precious stone, valued by many ancient societies, but having a particular significance in Chinese dynastic culture where it was highly valued by emperors and believed to possess supernatural powers.  Helm is a naval term used to describe a navigation or control point; the captain’s wheel is the “helm” of the ship.  What are the implications of this?  Could we be saying that China is in control?  Is our government and military admitting that we are entering an era where America is no longer a global superpower?  Our $350 billion trade deficit with China is certainly one indicator of our diminished leverage.  With Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS) moving to establish the New Development Bank to rival the Western dominated IMF and World Bank, and a shift away from the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency, the future of the US economy feels bleak.  Meanwhile, the Chinese have been busy buying up American infrastructure, businesses and housing.  If you recall back in 2012, on the heels of the Sandy Hook school shooting, China, through their state-run media, demanded that the American public be disarmed.  Why should China care unless they are anticipating some sort of future conflict with America?

By conducting urban military exercises on American soil, it appears obvious to me that the military is training for war here, but is it to defend against an invasion by the Chinese or Russians?  Doubtful.  More than likely our government is anticipating 1) An economic collapse, leading to rioting and civil unrest, and 2) A backlash against foreign control, globalism, UN peace keeping forces, gun confiscation, etc.  And who would be at the center of a resistance against a totalitarian federal government and foreign occupiers?  Patriots, Constitutionalists, veterans, Libertarians, etc.  In other words, people who believe in our sovereignty, liberty, self-determination and a free-market economy- you know, Americans- all the same groups the Pentagon has identified as the nation’s number one terrorist threat.  Assuming the economy does collapse and chaos ensues, inevitably the military will move in to restore law and order and the continuity of government.  They will attempt to coordinate their efforts with state and local law enforcement.  The UN may be called upon to assist in peace-keeping efforts, humanitarian aid, etc.  A civil war may erupt as martial law is imposed and the federal government tightens its grip on power.  So, in this scenario, its helpful to have all the equipment already in tactical position, as well as have your soldiers trained to comb the streets, going door-to-door, confiscating weapons and rounding up dissenters.  It seems suspect that as Jade Helm kicks off, another mass shooting, this time in Charleston, South Carolina, is being used to push the gun control agenda yet again.  Make no mistake about it, if they cannot succeed in passing gun control legislation through media manipulation and coercion, they will use an economic collapse, race riots, war or other calamities to do it by force.

Another scenario- World War III.  NATO and the US have been relentlessly pressuring Russia by building up forces along the Russian border, in the North Atlantic and the Black Sea.  Claiming “Russian aggression” in Crimea as justification, NATO and the US have been using increasingly provocative language in their condemnation of Vladimir Putin.  Nevermind the fact that the E.U. is responsible for removing the democratically elected government of Ukraine (which rejected E.U. membership) and replacing it with a Nazi dictatorship, who has furthered the persecution of ethnic Russians in Crimea.  If war breaks out, we would undoubtedly face more unrest and, in the case of a nuclear attack, a complete breakdown of our society.

When I did a simple search for “human domain” I found several documents and instances where this terminology has been used before.  This is old news to military insiders, but not most Americans.  In 2012, Army Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond Odierno, along with Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James Amos and Adm. William McRaven, head of U.S. Special Operations forces, authored a paper entitled, Strategic Landpower: Winning the Clash of Wills which highlights the importance of understanding the human domain as necessary for success in future conflicts.  It should be noted that the context of this paper was in relation to growing threats in the Pacific region, but in this paper, “human domain” is defined as the physical, cultural and social environments that exist within a conflict.  It also applies to how humans interact in cyberspace.

“Operations in the “human domain” provide a unique capability to preclude and deter conflict through shaping operations that leverage partners and populations to enhance local and regional stability. Moreover, effective engagement does not rest entirely on the forward stationing of large formations. Interdependent teams of conventional and special operations forces can build local forces capable of handling many situations that previously called for direct U.S. intervention, while maintaining a low-cost, small footprint presence almost indefinitely.”

– Strategic Landpower: Winning The Clash of Wills [pg.6]

What I understand from this is, “Mastering the Human Domain” means gathering information about people, predicting and anticipating responses, blending in and working with locals, establishing who’s friendly and who’s hostile, who’s mailable and who’s resistant.  In town hall meetings, such as the one that took place in Bastrop, Texas, the military has repeatedly tried to portray itself as innocuous.  They are selling the idea that their presence in the community will benefit local businesses.  For example, “Well if our boys stop in for a hamburger after the drill, I hope you’ll have a few tables for them [nervous laughter ensues].”  So, Jade Helm, in my estimation, is purely a psychological operation in advance of a full military roll out.  It is designed to descend on American towns and gauge the local response.  Are people uncomfortable with our presence?  Where is the resistance centered?  Who can we count on for information?  How many explosions in the middle of the night will people tolerate before they start to get cranky?  Notice, the Army is going town to town asking permission from city councils to conduct the training, complete with PowerPoint presentations explaining how wonderful and patriotic it is for their city to participate.

Personally, it makes me want to vomit that any American city would be ok with this obvious infiltration.  We should be praising the likes of Texas Governor Greg Abbot who ordered the Texas State Guard to monitor Jade Helm operations this summer. “During the training operation, it is important that Texans know their safety, constitutional rights, private property rights and civil liberties will not be infringed,” Abbott wrote.  Abbot was ridiculed in the media for acting responsibly, in my opinion.

It is important that Americans arm themselves with information and stand up to this incursion now.  The military, under the direction of the tyrannical federal government, is using this time period to evaluate how easily they can subdue a population in the aftermath of a crisis, whether it be food riots, an ISIS attack or any number of tragedies they’re peddling- take your pick.  Will they subdue you?  Will you allow them to commandeer your warehouse for clandestine meetings, where, by cover of night, they plan to strike “enemies” in a Third Avenue apartment building?  Will they have your assurances- your cooperation?  More Americans need to be storming the doors of city hall, demanding that their cities decline participation this “training exercise.”  Some cities, to their credit, have said no to Jade Helm, but acquiescence seems to be the norm.

The military claims to not understand the debate over Jade Helm.  In Bastrop, Army Lt. Col. Mark Lastoria said to a crowd of concerned citizens, “You may have issues with the administration. So be it. But this institution right here has been with you for over 200 years.  I’ve worn this uniform across five different administrations for 27 years.”  In other words, it’s fine to distrust the government, but you don’t question the Army.  Perhaps the Army needs to examine the simple fact that the armed forces are under the direct command of the President of the United States, an office that has become more dictatorial than ever before.  Surely the government, through their NSA spy programs, have taken notice of the pictures and videos people have posted to Facebook of military convoys and massive amounts of weaponry and equipment moving around the country.  If they wanted to quell fears, they could hold a press conference announcing that the transports are simply military equipment returning from scaled-back operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Maybe we’d even believe that.  But the fact that they’re silent on the issue is chilling.

“Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.”

– George Washington

I’m not a military expert.  I’m not even a veteran.  I admit that I haven’t done months of intense research on this issue, like others have.  I’m sure one can repel much further down this particular rabbit hole.  I’m just One American- of many.  My point is, the Army’s explanations regarding Jade Helm don’t match up with simple common sense or even a cursory understanding of history.  They think you’re stupid.  And in many cases, we are… ignorant.  Turn off CNN and FOX and educate yourself.  Observe.  And then, like in Bastrop, send them packing.


Tagger Flouts Globalist Mantra

drink_waterDuring a recent trip to Walmart, I was delighted by what I read tagged on a Coke machine outside the entrance.  Right below the Walmart slogan, “Save Money.  Live Better.” was the line “Drink Water” in white paint pen.  Hah!  Really, do we save money when we ploink seventy-five cents into a soda machine and get a twelve ounce can of colored, carbonated, caffeinated, sugar-water that likely cost Coca-Cola twenty-five cents to manufacture and ship?  Do we live better with all the health problems associated with soda consumption, not to mention diet soda and the artificial sweetener aspartame?  The little hoodlum and his graffiti pen got me thinking.

Might we have more money and live better by not shopping at Walmart?  Lots of people loathe the place, but can’t seem to avoid it, either because it’s the only store within twenty-five miles that sells boxer shorts, bicycle chains and mini-blinds or because it’s the most affordable option.  In my case, both reasons apply.  It works like a tractor-beam and I’m not being overly dramatic, I’ve studied the physics of it.  I live in a small town.  Last week a brand new Walmart Supercenter held its grand opening here.  Perched on a hill like a stucco fortress overlooking the town, it eclipses the older, regular Walmart that opened back in the nineties.  Oh, you should have been there!  They brought out the spotlights and everything!  From a distance, you may have thought there was a film festival in town or heck, even a monster truck show.  They didn’t even have spotlights for the rodeos that took place over the summer.  Yes, it was the talk of the town:  “Have you been to the new Walmart yet?”  Yeesh.

As I shopped stealthily behind enemy lines, I realized this wasn’t just about Walmart, or soda for that matter.  I shop at Walmart.  I drink Coke.  You might be surprised to learn that I get SNAP benefits on an EBT card and I’m one of the millions of Americans who can’t afford health insurance for my family.  Didn’t you notice this is a free WordPress blog?  Instead of relying on government handouts in the form of food stamps and Obamacare, I would much prefer an occupation that offered a wage to support a family on.  I would like to buy my own health insurance, with my own money.  I don’t want to take from the haves to give to the have nots.

For my parent’s generation it was possible to find an entry-level job with training right out of high school.  All you had to do was show up and work hard; you could move up the ladder, make decent money and retire after forty years with a nice pension.  My folks both got two week paid vacations nearly every year and health insurance too.  It’s not that they worked harder; the opportunity they had as young adults has disappeared for my generation.  My generation has had to go back to college and rack up tens of thousands of dollars in student loan debt, in a desperate effort to earn a degree that still doesn’t guarantee a job allowing one to buy a home or put one’s kids through college.  I have a college degree, work two jobs and struggle to put food on the table and keep the power on.  That’s how much this country has changed.

The debate over whether Walmart is a boon or bust to local economies has been raging for years; it’s not exactly news.  The retail chain is notorious for treating its employees like dirt, offering mostly temporary and part-time positions, low wages, crappy benefits, forced overtime, etc.  It’s also not a mystery that a majority of products (especially electronics, toys, clothing and housewares) sold at Walmart are manufactured very cheaply in other countries like China and India where the company can capitalize on cheap labor, cheap components and minimal safety regulations.  Furthermore, because the chain is so large, they have massive buying power, allowing them to rake in more profit by buying already cheaply produced products at bulk discounts.  The Supercenters also offer groceries, which means the grocery stores, delis and bakeries in town also suffer.  Don’t go to Napa Auto Parts for seat covers, go to Walmart.  Don’t go to Safeway for Frosted Flakes, go to Walmart.  Don’t go to Les Schwab for tires, go to Walmart.  And they ad-match too, so even if a local store dares to compete by having a really good sale, forget it.  At Walmart, it’s cheaper and it’s all in one place.  Save money, save time, that’s the mantra.  Some argue that’s a brilliant business model, others say it’s predatory.  What’s the difference?  That’s free-market capitalism, right?  What is not so well known is that Walmart uses billions in taxpayer money in the form of tax breaks, infrastructure assistance, grants and other subsidies to help fund its expansion.

Is saving money the catch-all for a dependent, globalized America?  As a society, we sacrifice a lot for the sake of low prices.  But therein lies the key to Walmart’s success.  Walmart thrives in a poor economy, where people have less and less to spend because wages are so low and good-paying, full-time work is disappearing.  But, they also drive the poor economy, and so do we, by shopping there.  It’s a cycle of dependence.

It’s not that folks who shop specialty marts and boutiques are all trendy snobs, but they can afford to buy all organic, sustainably-grown, non-GMO stuff.  They can afford artisan, hand-crafted, American made products.  The rest of us get cheap, microwavable slop, and vacuum cleaners that stop working after a few runs across the carpet.  I don’t hate the people who have nice homes along the lake.  They are not our enemy.  Perhaps they started a successful business or made smart investments.  Someday, I would love to own a home by the lake and a boat.  In America, that should remain an achievable goal for all, a reminder of the opportunities that exist in our nation.  The globalists want to strip away wealth and opportunity.  They want to nullify success and the values that have made America strong: innovation, ingenuity, determination and hard work.

Walmart is a key molecule in the globalist paradigm.  But Walmart is just one prominent example of how globalism destroys culture.  The landscape of our country is changing, and not for the better.  Not so long ago, individual cities had their own character and style, defined by their signature shops, stores and restaurants.  They were operated by local people, families and small-business owners.  Now, everything is homogenized and corporatized.   You can’t go anywhere in the United States without finding an Olive Garden, Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, Target or PetSmart.  Often, they’re all lined up together in the same shopping center.

The myth of globalism assures us that interdependence results in a more peaceful, equitable world.  The reality of globalism, however, is subjugation to authoritarian control.  It’s not about nations working together, caring and sharing, it’s about nations surrendering their sovereignty, wealth, resources and culture.  It is the arch-nemesis of liberty and independence.

It should be no surprise then that Walmart serves as the staging ground for economic crisis experimentation. When the corporate controlled government wants to test people’s response to malfunctioning EBT cards (either when they’re rendered useless or when they’re given an unlimited balance, both of which we witnessed last month), Walmart is used to gauge the reaction.  Why?  Because Walmart is everywhere, and they’re still spreading.  If you don’t have one nearby, you will soon.  When Black Friday rolls around this year, Walmart will hire armed guards in some locations and even set up SkyWatch surveillance towers in the parking lot.  Nobody complains.  It’s there to keep everyone safe while assaulting each other over cell phones and Furbys.  When the economy collapses, will the military use Walmart stores as distribution centers for your weekly ration of food, water and clothing?  Of course they will, because they know you’ll be there.


“Shutdown” Exposes Government’s True Agenda

ufo_capitolJust when you thought mainstream media propaganda couldn’t be any more blatant, NBC ran a series of revolting specials earlier this month, all designed to praise Obamacare and reinforce the notion that we need the government for everything.  On September 30th, following a melodramatic story about the fate of annual elk-watching activities at Yellowstone in lieu of a government shutdown, the NBC Nightly News ended with anchor Brian Williams’ words, “Our cameras picked up another gorgeous sunset in Washington, the question there is, when we see the sun again tomorrow morning will it rise over a city paralyzed by a government shutdown?”

One can hardly call the fiasco in Washington D.C. a “shutdown”.  If we are expected to believe the myth that the shutdown is due to a lack of funding, because Congress and the President can’t agree on a budget, then we might expect things like welfare checks being postponed or the NSA suspending domestic spying operations- hah!  Or, we might expect to take a leisurely hike through Yellowstone National Park without the benefit of a park ranger to give us directions or warn us about rattlesnakes.

Instead, we are witnessing extra money being spent on bureaucracy, barricades and security to close national parks and monuments, where no barricades or security were in use before- even in locations not funded by the federal government, like Mount Vernon (George Washington’s historic plantation), which is privately owned and operated.  In fact, hundreds of privately managed parks and businesses which reside on federally owned land, providing the government with tax revenue and the American people with jobs, were forced into closure for the duration of the shutdown.  A group of mostly senior citizens, including tourists from Japan, Australia and Canada, were held for hours in their hotel rooms at Yellowstone National Park by armed guards because their tour unfortunately landed on October 1st, when the boot-stomping- err, shutdown- commenced.   Some of the tourists were treated so harshly they thought they were under arrest.  The government even went so far as to block the highway off-ramps leading to Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, so that the monument could not be seen.  The state of Arizona offered to use its own funds to keep Grand Canyon National Park open, but was denied by the federal government.  Taking a jog through Valley Forge National Historic Park in Pennsylvania got one man fined $100.  And perhaps worst of all, war veterans were threatened with arrest by the feds for visiting the World War II and Vietnam War Memorials and the Iwo Jima Monument, which were all closed off because of the shutdown.  In defiance, veterans, some World War II Marines in their eighties and nineties, broke through the barricades and exercised their freedom to visit these open-air memorials.

Across the greater Washington D.C. area, playgrounds, walking paths and bike trails were closed, which require no staff or funding to keep open.  But Lincoln Park, which is known to be used by several members of Congress was kept open.  Non-essential employees like President Obama’s staff of gourmet chefs are still employed, meanwhile low-income military families who depend on the commissary for tax-free groceries were forced to shop elsewhere.  Camp David and a military golf course used by the President remained open, but thankfully, Michelle Obama publicly stated she would stop Tweeting.  Aren’t Twitter accounts free?  Catholic priests working on military bases ministering to soldiers were told they could no longer provide religious services like mass and baptism.  When the priests offered to volunteer their services for free, they were threatened with prison.  Visitors to the Amber Alert website were re-directed to a page stating the website was unavailable due to a lapse in federal funding.  People became outraged when they discovered the actual website was still running and that staffers had been used to create a re-direct in the URL.  There are literally dozens of examples of President Obama’s “shutdown theater”, many more of which are outlined in a disturbing article on Breitbart.com.  The goal of all this?  “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can.  It’s disgusting.” said an angry park ranger who blew the whistle on the Obama Administration’s bullying tactics to the Washington Times.

Compared to the Department of Defense or IRS, the country’s national park system is perhaps one of the least expensive departments of the government to operate, but is one of the most symbolic.  In other words, shutting down national parks does virtually nothing in the way of cutting spending or reducing debt, but is designed to show force and punish the American people- for political gain.  The result of all this is an American public now furious with Republicans in the House of Representatives, who are being wrongfully blamed for causing the shutdown and furloughing thousands of government employees.  Of course Congress has been inept for decades, but we should be in praise of those few willing to take a stand against disastrous decisions like raising the debt ceiling (again) or allowing Obamacare the funding it needs to properly cripple the economy and destroy the middle-class.  As Republicans, again and again, offered compromises to re-open the government and begin negotiations, President Obama, again and again, threatened to veto any legislation placing boundaries on his agenda.

In the midst of this political mess, Miriam Carey, a mother, was murdered by Washington D.C. police in front of her one-year-old daughter because she was confused and frightened by a makeshift military checkpoint.  Let me repeat, a military checkpoint.  When the unarmed woman fled, she was pursued by frenzied cops and executed.  She was shot twelve times at close range, through the windows of her car.  Meanwhile around D.C., manic police smashed into barricades with their patrol cars to give the appearance of a chaotic situation deserving of a total lockdown.  Members of Congress praised the police as heroes and applauded their efforts to keep them safe.  The media salivated at the opportunity to cast the woman as a rampaging Tea Party activist, storming the White House with guns ablaze.  She never rammed a White House fence or fired a shot, as was initially reported.  There was never a threat to members of Congress or the President.  That didn’t stop the feds however from descending on her Stamford, Connecticut neighborhood, complete with bomb-defusing robots, to search her home for anti-government literature.  When the truth was revealed that she was a young, Black, dental-hygienist, being medicated for mental health issues, the story quickly lost its usefulness.

The very next day, a man later identified as John Constantino of Mount Laurel, New Jersey, gave a “crisp military salute” to the Capitol, doused himself with gasoline and set himself on fire, according to a witness.  He died later at a hospital from severe burns.  The media downplayed the significance of this event, saying he may have been protesting.  The man’s family issued a statement saying he suffered with mental illness and that his death “was not a political act or statement”, reported NBC.  But self-immolation has long been seen as a form of radical political protest.  One of Constantino’s neighbors, Regina Horner, told Reuters that Constantino was a friendly man who showed no signs of depression.  She added, “He did not want to talk about politics because the government did not care about us.”  Perhaps he was giving a final salute to the Republic?  We can only speculate.  But the fact that this occurred on the National Mall, in the midst of all this political scheming, does beg the question.

With the majority of the federal government still in operation, the “shutdown” is mostly an illusion, but one in which real Americans have suffered.  Ours is a nation seized by international corporate interests who control the media and your mind.  This is nothing more than a psychological operation designed to sway public opinion and crush the Obama regime’s opposition, so they can continue with their plan to spend the economy into the dirt and expand their authoritarian, welfare, nanny state.  It is so anti-American, so anti-human in fact, it may as well be an alien takeover.  And what do you do when there is an alien takeover?

You resist, or die.
