The Family Meeting

This past Sunday, I had called a family meeting to discuss the state of the union, as I saw it, and what the family might do as a group to prepare ourselves for the coming Fascist States of America. Well, let's just say it went better than I expected it to, although some of the invited family members didn't show for various reasons.

My mother and step-father, my sister and brother-in-law and my husband and me sat all afternoon and talked about the very things I'm discussing here on the blog. Each were in different states of awareness. They listened patiently as I went through the evidence stored in my mind on 9/11, the war on terror, PNAC (see previous post), the coming economic crash, the coming state of fascism in America, mind-control and many other topics that relate.

We all agreed that we didn't like what our government was doing in our name. All have been against the war in Iraq and Afghanistan since the beginning, all are liberal in their thinking, but none were quite able to grasp the terror of the situation. Sis had a hard time believing that King George and court are lying about the elections (2000, 2004), about 9/11, about these pre-emptive wars, all to suit a hidden agenda and run by an admitted secret government. Brother-in-law worried that they don't have enough extra capital to join with my husband and me in a venture toward a safe haven outside the U.S.

We agreed to keep the dialogue going on this subject and to pay attention to the signs, but that's about all we agreed upon. We also agreed that an income producing property would be better than one that's not -- producing income, that is.

We talked about various countries where we could go. I had decided already that Canada and Mexico are out after reading on From the Wilderness that both countries had signed extradition treaties with the U.S. in 2003 to send draft dodgers back to the U.S. (geez, I wonder what King George's court knows that we don't). Having three draft age boys and three soon-to-be draft age boys made these two countries out of the question. Latin American countries, such as Belize and Costa Rica, were discussed as possibilities.

Those in the family of my parents' generation (65+) will not consider leaving the U.S., but some of them at least agree that it might make sense for those of my and my children's generations to get the heck out of Dodge while the getting is still good. Regardless of whether the family joins us in this venture or not, my husband and I have decided that we will pursue moving out of the country, as soon as we possibly can.

We don't think we can change the course that King George has set, not even with our now useless vote. We no longer wish to support this government in any way -- not with our tax dollars, not with our compliance, not with the shirts off our backs.

Move, Neo, now...

SEEing is Believing

I said a few posts ago that to be able to SEE what's really going on in the world today, one must first wake up to the fact that we are imprisoned by a Matrix that serves a purpose. But who, or what, controls this Matrix? Who are the Architects? Who is enslaving us? And, perhaps more importantly, why? In the next several posts, I'll post some observations that might give some clues to the answers to these questions.

Let's start here in the U.S., although I don't believe the Architects are strictly U.S.-based -- they're all over the world -- but the U.S. seems to be the hotbed headquarters for the current plan. It is quite clear to a good number of us now that our government has lied to us about many things to further its own hidden agenda. Let's see, where shall I start?

I gave the example in the last post about there being no weapons of mass destruction, which was the key justification for King George's plan to invade Iraq, but let's go deeper into the rabbit hole, Alice. Let's go to the root event that allowed the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, will likely allow the invasion of Iran, Syria, and North Korea, and prompted the entire "war on terror." That event was, of course, 9/11.

Most of us watched in horror as the second tower was hit by a passenger plane, then we reeled with disbelief as both towers collapsed, right before our very eyes. Over and over again, we watched it happen, as the news media inundated us with these images (repetition while in a state of shock is a very effective mind-control technique). Before the morning was done, we were told that a plane had also hit the Pentagon and one was downed in a Pennsylvania field.

Almost immediately and without any kind of investigation whatsoever, we were being told that Al-Qaeda was responsible for the dastardly plan. We were told that 19 hijackers of Middle Eastern descent had piloted the planes that did the damage. And were told it over and over again.

Now, there are some fairly obvious questions surrounding the government's story, none of which were addressed by the supposed 9/11 Commission, which only served to tighten the intelligence controls on the U.S., rather than get to the real perpetrators.

For example, if the heat from the fires in the towers were the cause of their collapse, how is it that the tower hit last was the first to collapse and why have a number of engineers and demolition experts said that they believe the twin towers were demolished? Indeed, it certainly appeared to be a planned demolition, when viewing the sight on live TV.

Or how about this one -- why were some 7 of the 19 hijackers, who were supposedly killed in the attack, reported alive and well by their friends and relatives shortly after 9/11? That was a story squashed quickly. Here's another story that got squelched shortly after 9/11 -- why has the SEC not released the names of the unusually high number of investors who sold short on American Airlines, United Airlines, and the companies who insured the World Trade Center, and why does the investment trail lead back to an ex-CIA director, turned banker?

No, let's just focus on one area where some fairly convincing evidence clearly shows that the Pentagon was not hit by a passenger plane. Watch this flash presentation, called Pentagon Strike, and read this Commentary on the Pentagon Strike, then come back to the rest of this post for more discussion.

SEEing is believing, Alice. When confronted with the facts, the objective reality, it is quite clear that no passenger plane hit the Pentagon. Something hit the Pentagon, but it wasn't a passenger plane. So, if we accept the facts before our very eyes, then we must conclude that our government is lying about the facts surrounding 9/11. And why would they do that? Why would they deliberately participate in a cover-up of the facts of 9/11? Why did the military stand down when they supposedly knew that four planes had been hijacked? Why was our government complicit in killing some 3,500 of its own citizens?

Well, the answer in part can be found in a document prepared by the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), a right-wing Washington think tank founded in the spring of 1997 by some of the very men who now hold office in King George's court. Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Perle and others, including the King's brother, Jeb Bush, have all been affiliated with this think tank. Four years before 9/11 and three years before the King ascended to the throne in early 2001, PNAC was urging then President Clinton to wage war on Iraq, according to this Philadelophia Daily News story:
"We urge you to... enunciate a new strategy that would secure the interests of the U.S. and our friends and allies around the world," stated the letter to Clinton, signed by Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, and others. "That strategy should aim, above all, at the removal of Saddam Hussein's regime from power." (For full text of the letter, click here.)
When Clinton wouldn't invade, it became clear that more was needed to push their agenda on the world. In September of 2000, a full year before 9/11, PNAC published their comprehensive report on the state of America's military and made recommendations for Rebuilding America's Defenses, a plan that is still being followed almost to the letter by King George and his court. One quote from the report seems eerily prophetic (or planned) in relation to 9/11:

"Further, the process of [military] transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event –like a new Pearl Harbor." (p. 51; italics mine)

Well, 9/11 has certainly been a "catastrophic and catalyzing event," now hasn't it? In fact, it is the very event upon which everything else has been based. This is the big lie at the root of all else that has ensued since King George grabbed power, well, except for the even bigger that he's even in power. This is the lie that threatens our very democracy (see Michael Moore's Farenheit 911 for more on the fraudulent way in which King George came to power in 2,000).

I don't know about you, but I don't think the 2004 election was any more legitimate than the 2000 election, and long live King George for another four years! How lovely to pay my taxes and have them squandered on needless, senseless war, secret intelligence and covert black ops to disrupt whole nations, like Haiti, when the money could have gone to so many other constructive uses here in our own country, like healthcare, arts and education.

I want out, Morpheus. Give me the red pill, please, please...

Signs of the Times

One way to wake up and stay awake is to pay attention to the signs of our times, to really observe our reality for what it is, not for what we'd like it to be or for what we're told it should be by corporations, politicians or the media.

For instance, when King George was justifying his invasion of Iraq, the world was told that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and that he had links to Al-Qaeda. The media played it up for days, weeks and months. All we heard was "Saddam" linked to "weapons of mass destruction" and "Al-Qaeda" ad nauseum. This is how the brainwashing is accomplished -- repetition, repetition, repetition.

So, the U.S. invades Iraq, kills (and is still killing) tens of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians, then finally admits a month ago that there were no weapons of mass destruction. Whoa! What the heck, Alice, was that the cheshire cat?

Now, if you were to conduct a poll today of American sheeple, you would find that a fairly high percentage still believe that Saddam had "weapons of mass destruction" and "ties to Al-Qaeda," especially those who rely on Fox News for their information (see the video Outfoxed for more on that).

I've found a website that does its level best to see the world as objectively as possible by gathering and reporting the news as it is, without the spin, without the glitz, without the right-wing neo-con agenda, but also without a left-wing agenda, because, you see, they are really just two sides of the same coin. To see objectively means to see without bias, prejudice or wishful thinking for the left or the right.

That website is the Signs of the Times. I go there regularly to get a dose of reality, especially when I've been inundated by all the propaganda, espoused by the mainstream U.S. news media.

The Matrix: A Culture of Lies and Illusions

We can't wake up to the idea of escape, if we don't even realize we're in prison, and most of us on the planet now don't have a clue. We think we live in the free-est country in the world -- America -- land of the free and home of the brave. Hogwash, Alice!

Most of us are enslaved by materialism, debt and the need to survive in a world full of psycopaths. The American public has been so thoroughly hypnotized by the electronic media, which is now controlled by corporate elitists and the government, that we have lost the power to think, let alone the ability to see the forest for the trees.

I said in my description of this blog that we live in a world dominated completely by Evil Magicians. This concept was introduced by G. I. Gurdjieff, an early 20th century Gnostic philosopher, to teach his students about what we would call the Matrix Control System. P. D. Ouspensky, a student of Gurdjieff, offers Gurdjieff's parable in his book, In Search of the Miraculous, which uses the metaphor of a rich magician and his sheep:

"First of all it must be realized that the sleep in which man exists is not normal, but hypnotic sleep. Man is hypnotized and this hypnotic state is continually maintained and strengthened in him. One would think that there are forces for whom it is useful and profitable to keep man in a hypnotic state and prevent him from seeing the truth and understanding his position.

"There is an Eastern tale which speaks about a very rich magician who had a great many sheep. But at the same time this magician was very mean. He did not want to hire shepherds, nor did he want to erect a fence about the pasture where his sheep were grazing. The sheep consequently often wandered into the forest, fell into ravines, and so on, and above all they ran away, for they knew that the magician wanted their flesh and skins and this they did not like.

"At last the magician found a remedy. He hypnotized his sheep and suggested to them first of all that they were immortal and that no harm was being done to them when they were skinned, that, on the contrary, it would be very good for them and even pleasant; secondly he suggested that the magician was a good master who loved his flock so much that he was ready to do anything in the world for them; and in the third place he suggested to them that if anything at all were going to happen to them it was not going to happen just then, at any rate not that day, and therefore they had no need to think about it. Further the magician suggested to his sheep that they were not sheep at all; to some of them he suggested that they were lions, to others that they were eagles, to others that they were men, and to others that they were magicians.

"And after this all his cares and worries about the sheep came to an end. They never ran away again but quietly awaited the time when the magician would require their flesh and skins.

"This tale is a very good illustration of man's position." (p. 219; author's italics)

Now, let's see what else Gurdjieff and Ouspensky have to say about being in prison. Again, from In Search of the Miraculous, here's first a quote from Gurdjieff, then Ouspensky's remarks:

"You do not realize your own situation. You are in prison. All you can wish for, if you are a sensible man, is to escape. But how escape? It is necessary to tunnel under a wall. One man can do nothing. But let us suppose there are ten or twenty men -- if they work in turn and if one covers another they can complete the tunnel and escape.

"Furthermore, no one can escape from prison without the help of those who have escaped before. Only they can say in what way escape is possible or can send tools, files, or whatever may be necessary. But one prisoner alone cannot find these people or get into touch with them. An organization is necessary. Nothing can be achieved without an organization."

G. often returned afterwards to this example of "prison" and "escape from prison" in this talks. Sometimes he began with it, and then his favorite statement was that, if a man in prison was at any time to have a chance to escape, then he must first of all realize that he is in prison. So long as he fails to realize this, so long as he thinks he is free, he has no chance whatever. No one can help or liberate him by force, against his will, in opposition to his wishes. If liberation is possible, it is possible only as a result of great labor and great efforts, and, above all, of conscious efforts, towards a definite aim. (p. 30; author's italics)

So, there you have it. Evil Magicians, the Architects of the Matrix, have been controlling this planet for a very long, long time, always hiding their true intentions. When you look at the history of our planet, it is quite clear that Machiavellian ideas have reigned supreme for eons, long before Niccola Machiavelli thought to write them down in The Prince, and they are no less prevalent today.

Gurdjieff offers the only means of escape -- a group, an organization. Until groups of us band together in like-minded determination to escape, we are lost. And to form groups of like-minded people means that a critical mass must first awaken to the fact that we are in prison, we are not free, we are merely sheeple.
