The Establishment’s War On Truth

The propaganda machine in place that pervades the western hemiphere military and economic bloc was developed by Edward Bernays.  Bernays was Sigmund  Freud’s nephew. His propaganda theories were adopted by the Third Reich, U.S. Corporations, the U.S. military and Deep State and the media.   The article below will help explain the current domestic political chaos in this country as well as the re-emergence of the Cold War between the U.S. neocon warmonger and Russia.

Inside the Invisible Government: War, Propaganda, Clinton & Trump

Bernays’ influence extended far beyond advertising. His greatest success was his role in convincing the American public to join the slaughter of the First World War. The secret, he said, was “engineering the consent” of people in order to “control and regiment [them] according to our will without their knowing about it”.

He described this as “the true ruling power in our society” and called it an “invisible government”.

Today, the invisible government has never been more powerful and less understood. In my career as a journalist and film-maker, I have never known propaganda to insinuate our lives and as it does now and to go unchallenged.

Crony Communism: Hillary Clinton’s Game Plan For America

“The goal of socialism is communism.” Vladimir Lenin

Inferential Analytics (IA), the forecasting method we have created and use, has generated a new theme. IA themes define significant macro developments that are in progress. IA themes almost always become full-blown realities in time. This is our first article about the new theme, which is particularly threatening and disturbing.

If this theme develops as the IA model projects, the resulting new reality will have a profound effect on every United States citizen living either within or outside the country. (U.S. citizens are taxed no matter where in the world they reside.) While the entire American experience will be re-shaped by this new reality, citizens’ financial freedom, and therefore their overall liberty is particularly at risk. This theme extends beyond the United States, especially to Europe, but in this article we will focus on the U.S. situation.

Before introducing and detailing the new theme, here is some context.

Until now, the United States has been able to fund its massive, structural deficits and debts by leveraging its unique position as issuer of the world’s reserve currency, the dollar, frequently referred to as the petrodollar. The dollar’s reserve privilege has enabled the nation to artificially enhance America’s financial quality of life by creating out of nothing colossal quantities of the currency. By perpetuating a system that forces other nations to use the dollar, strong, unnatural demand has kept the currency from imploding in value despite its hyper-creation.

Among other things, this currency privilege has hidden rapidly escalating corruption within the American financial and economic system. The costs of this corruption have been funded by chronic deficits and surging debt; in other words, by excess currency creation, or money printing. If the costs of this corruption had, instead, been forced to be paid from the existing, and not an inflated money stock, the economy would have collapsed by now from the leeching of the lifeblood of any truly capitalistic system: namely, capital.

As the techniques of monetary debasement, deceit and plunder have become more sophisticated, reckless and brazen, the looting of the American economy has expanded to an epic degree. For example, we now know for a fact that the United States Army alone (not the military, just the Army), cannot account for $6,500,000,000,000.00 ($6.5 trillion) of the money it has spent. Despite the astronomical amount of this missing money, it is a drop in the bucket compared to the total number of trillions that have been plundered from the nation by establishment corruption.

In the mid-1990s, when the escalating corruption within the Wall Street-centered global monetary and financial system had become so obvious that the Establishment eleech (our term for the “elite,” a word we no longer use because it does not describe their now totally parasitic nature) could no longer deny it with a straight face, a new term to describe the system was concocted: Crony Capitalism.

The term Crony Capitalism was meant to imply that the system remained capitalistic, even though a bit of cronyism had crept into it around the edges. Further, the term implied that it is natural for a certain amount of cronyism to accompany any capitalistic system, and that people should not be concerned about it, as it is a normal and expected development.

This was blatant propaganda and a lie. The term Crony Capitalism is a fundamental contradiction in terms, and a fallacy. It is like saying, “healthy corpse,” “honest thief,” “trustworthy liar,” or “loyal snitch.” Cronyism pollutes and destroys capitalism. They are natural enemies and polar opposites, and they cannot legitimately or naturally co-exist.

Through constant repetition, which is how lies are dressed up to appear true, the term crony capitalism took hold, and became the descriptor for what we were expected to believe was a slightly imperfect, but still fundamenally healthy and vibrant form of capitalism. This falsehood was believed, until now.

Today, people in nations around the world have figured out that the United States is deep within a debt vortex from which it can never escape; that its structural deficits are uncontainable unless the system flat-out collapses; that the dollar is a massive figment of the imagination, supported only by an ephemeral confidence completely disjointed from any logical justification for it; and that the nation’s socio-political reality is fractured, dysfunctional and irreversibly disintegrating at an accelerating rate.

Therefore, these international players are increasingly unwilling to play the dollar game, and are progressively withdrawing from the field. While the U.S. government and Crony Class are doing everything possible to keep the game alive, it is now obvious that they are failing.

With the United States approaching a time when it can no longer fund its structurally and systemically defective financial, monetary, economic, fiscal and socio-political contraptions with a combination of currency counterfeiting and the subtle extraction of wealth from the rest of the world, it is being left with only one means by which to perpetuate itself: plundering the private wealth of its own citizens.

This is the theme that has been identified by Inferential Analytics. We have named it: “Crony Communism.”

Crony Communism takes the absolute worst aspects of every former, parasitic national operating system that has existed in history, including socialism, communism, colonialism, tribalism, totalitarianism and statism and blends them into a new, malevolent, deceitful, destructive, deadening, militaristic, hyper-corrupt, soulless, and thoroughly evil form of human command and control. Its total financial and human cost will be unprecedented, if it plays out as the IA signals indicate it most likely will.

Crony communism is the actual “fundamental transformation,” or better termed “fundamental destruction” of the United States of America that Obama promised in 2008. The people should have listened to him more carefully when he said that, because he wasn’t kidding around.

Many have believed that communism will never happen in the United States, because it would hurt the Crony Class the worst, given that they possess the most money. What the people repeatedly fail to comprehend is that communism is intended for and inflicted upon them, but never upon the Crony eleech. History proves that the eleech live like royalty in communist regimes. Two of the most glaring examples are North Korea and Venezuela, but the phenomenon has been identical in every single communist system that has been implemented to date.

One notable example of this reality is Maria Gabriela Chavez, the 35 year old daughter of deceased Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, who has never held a real job in her life, yet who happens to be the country’s richest person with a net worth of $4.2 billion. This phenomenal wealth is thanks to the plunder her so-called communist father schemed for her to receive. As the Venezuelan people eat family pets to survive and starve in the streets, Maria Gabriela lifts not a finger to lessen their anguish, despite possessing a fortune that she could not possibly spend in two dozen lifetimes.

This illustrates the sheer hypocrisy of communist organizers: while they force wealth redistribution upon the citizens, they refuse to contribute one penny of their own wealth to anyone, let alone to the general welfare of their society. Communist organizers and their Crony Class brethren are not just greedy, they are cheap. Maria Gabriela’s pathological greed is shared by every single communist organizer we have researched, from Kim Jong Un to the Castros to the living, phony, self-righteous, well-known communist frauds in the United States.

The establishment’s vast wealth will never be subjected to communist expropriation. It will be stashed in various “Foundations,” which would be much better termed “Fraudations,” or “Slushfundations,” where it will be fully exempt from all forms of taxation and fees. Communist impoverishment will be for us, the people, not them, the establishment. Only the well-connected Crony eleech will be provided the necessary licenses to establish fraudations and thereby escape taxation and expropriation. The Clinton Slushfundation comes to mind, as a leading indicator of this sub-theme.

While it is not possible in this brief overview for us to outline in detail each of the building blocks that, combined, will result in the imposition of Crony Communism upon the nation and its people, we can provide a glimpse of some of the more important tactics that will be used. These factors are not theory; they are reality. Each and every one of these tactics is already in play at this time.

  • The notion of “After Tax Savings” will be destroyed. It will be said that only criminals or greedy, selfish, anti-social hoarders save money. Savers will be villified for hurting their fellow citizens and “the economy” by not spending. All income net of taxes will be forced to be spent, to prop up a phony economy structured to enrich the Crony eleech. Any legacy money existing when people die will be forfeited to the state via confiscatory death taxes such as those outlined, as a first step, in Clinton’s campaign platform. Zero and negative interest rates will ensure that savings are expropriated by banking institutions controlling those funds, and by inflation, which is guaranteed to significantly escalate. (See Venezuela.)

  • The “cost structure of life” will be increased to make it impossible for people to save, get ahead or become independent of the state. This cost structure will include ever-increasing taxes; health insurance premiums; insurance deductibles; medical costs; licensing, registration, inspection and reporting fees; surcharges; arbitrary fines; food costs; energy costs; currency devaluation- and inflation-related costs; and virtually every other category of expense related to simply surviving in the crony communist society. As people become impoverished and can no longer afford these costs, they will receive subsidies while those who are not yet impoverished will continue to be charged the full boat until they, too, require subsidies as they disappear into the financial morass. (See Obamacare.)

  • Citizens will be required to file not just income tax returns, but personal asset returns detailing every financial asset and physical possession they own. A financial dossier will exist on every citizen, making it easy for the state to pinpoint and expropriate whatever wealth it wants. Executive Orders will be in place allowing the government to seize any and all assets on any pretext it creates, such as ambiguously defined “emergency situations.” Please note: such Executive Orders already exist, just like everything else in this list.

  • Cash will be eliminated so that any money still possessed by citizens is electronic, non-withdrawable, controlled and available for seizure. This objective has been publicly announced and is on a fast-track development path right now.

  • Entirely new taxes, fees and fines will be imposed upon individuals and businesses. These charges will be said to promote “fairness,” “equality,” “togetherness,” and similar high-sounding but totally phony terms, and will be named such things as “Climate Improvement Contribution,” “Wage Harmonization Donation,” “Refugee Resettlement Offering,” and “Financial Equalization Gratuity.” Once one brand new tax category has been fully implemented, a new one will be introduced, in a never-ending cycle that will only stop when all the people’s money has been stolen and nothing is left to loot.

  • Wealth taxes will be imposed on all who possess assets net of the tax and fee dragnet, an idea that has been formally introduced by the IMF. Please note that IMF employees do not pay income taxes on their lavish, taxpayer-funded salaries; they are exempt, which is a perfect illustration of our fundamental point that taxes and fees will be meant for the people, and not the establishment eleech.

  • Mass immigration will be used to destroy the nation’s identity, skew elections and reduce resistance to the overthrow of the nation’s institutions, values and traditions. It will also be used as an excuse to create an entirely new set of taxes and fees, to pay the exorbitant costs of providing food, housing, medical care, transportation and other resettlement and living costs of immigrants and “refugees.” Currently, 70% of the American population has less than $1,000 in savings. The communist organizers never explain who is supposed to pay the costs of bringing millions of immigrants into the country, because they have no answer and don’t care; their agenda is domestic regime change. The United States is already bankrupt, so “what difference, at this point, does it make?” They will simply counterfeit more currency, even if it means hyperinflation, an event they will sidestep via indexation clauses that will benefit them, but not the people.

  • Guns will be banned, which has happened in every single communist and totalitarian regime throughout history. Gun possession by government agents, members of the eleech, and mercenaries protecting the eleech will be legal and authorized. See Venezuela.

  • The Alternative Media will be shut down, and replaced by State Media which will become the monopoly provider of “news” and “information.” This explains why the MSM is currently licking the establishment’s boots and pushing its agenda with media bias so extreme it is actually laughable and absurd. They realize there is a huge payday for them as State Media monopolists under Crony Communism. Again, state control of the media is a consistent theme in all communist regimes.

For IA to signal a theme, literally hundreds of datapoints must converge upon a common story. While the above list contains just a small number of factors, it is indicative of how this new theme has developed.

The objective behind the vast array of taxes, surcharges, regulatory and licensing fees, inspection fees, fines and the like will be to transfer the maximum possible amount of private assets from the citizens to those in charge of the Crony Communist regime. As the people are systematically stripped of their assets and impoverished, they will become increasingly and ultimately totally dependent upon the state for their existence. This, of course, is the point.

Accompanying the full-blown overthrow of the nation by the for-profit (for them) Crony Communist regime will be an endless litany of slogans, many of which have already been used to brainwash and confuse the people. Examples abound, such as, “Change We can Believe In,” “Owning the Future,” “One American Family,” Stronger Together,” “Forward,” “Hope and Change,” and the like. Soon, we will be hearing new ones such as, “Service over Selfishness,” “Don’t Get: Give,” “Talent Must be Shared with All,” all of them deriving from the famous communist mantra, “From Each According to His Ability, to Each According to his Needs.” Slogans have been a cornerstone of communist overthrows throughout history.

Every single element of Crony Communism outlined above is either already in place to a certain degree, or has been officially proposed and recommended by the government and/or the Crony Class mouthpieces and shills. The only thing that has not happened, yet, is for all of these elements to be pulled together into one, interconnected system of Crony Communism. It is the amalgamation of the individual elements that is now demonstrably underway, and this is the critical change that has been detected by the Inferential Analytics model. This change vastly accelerates the imposition of Crony Communism upon the nation, and makes all the difference.

Inferential Analytics is a descriptive, predictive and prescriptive forecasting method. Typically, we omit the prescriptive aspect in our reports, because we view people as intelligent beings who are best able to plan for their own futures once they have been given a good idea about what is heading toward them.

However, in this case, we are going to depart from convention and issue a prescriptive statement. We are doing this because Crony Communism represents such a radical, sweeping and dangerous departure from everything the American people know and value that many might simply be incapable of believing it can happen here, internalizing what it will mean to them personally, and taking the necessary steps to protect themselves from its onslaught.

As we await further information (the outcome of the 2016 elections will have enormous implications for the Crony Communism theme), two prescriptions for readers are these: First, politically speaking, if you support any long-term, professional politicians, you are voting for Crony Communism, because those people have everything to gain from it, and are working to make it happen. Second, financially speaking, you need to slam on the brakes right now and get your houses in order. This means that all expenses not absolutely necessary should immediately be eliminated. You need to generate and protect precious financial resources however possible, because they will be necessary to fund your escape from Crony Communism, should it go full-blown. We can assure decent, principled, moral, productive, tax-paying, everyday American people that you will not want to live for one minute under Crony Communism, nor will you want your loved ones to live under it, either.

We regret feeling obligated to delineate the Crony Communism theme, and pray that the IA forecast is wrong. Given the accuracy of the IA method, which has been successfully back-tested for many years, we believe it would be wrong of us not to speak out publicly at this time, because this theme has a very high probability of coming true unless the people rise up to stop it.

A Reader Responds To Paul Craig Roberts

I love PCR’s well informed analysis of the situation. He clarified things for me when I read his book, How America Was Lost. The 9/11 commission report was delayed for a year, and then those on the commission felt they were lied to and not given all the information they requested.

I believe the neocons are afraid of Trump. That is a good enough reason for me to give him my vote. We should have another investigation of 9/11. Since President Obama has not answered the call, then it needs to be Trump.

The PNAC document provides all the evidence we need to demand an investigation. It is a blue print for the interventionist Middle East policy we have had since 9/11.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_for_the_New_American_Century

Only Trump and Sanders are outside of the neocon’s grip.

Is World War Three Unavoidable?

I was first dragged, somewhat unwillingly, on to the “dark side” back in 2001.  I was spending my time shorting the market, mostly still-overvalued tech stocks at a daytrading shop in Denver.   I met a guy who had been studying the precious metals market and all of the issues connected to gold and the evolution of fiat currency since 1971.  Really, this development dates back to the founding of the Fed in 1913.  And, really, it dates back to when President Lincoln allowed someone to use Government-issued war bonds as legal tender to settle a debt.

After doing my own due diligence on all of the above, I concluded about two years later that what was developing economically and geopolitically would eventually lead to World War Three.  Talk about largely playing by myself in the doom and gloom sandbox…

While my opinions don’t need to count, Paul Craig Roberts has written must-read commentary which explains why he believes that WW3 is inevitable:

The events of September 11, 2001, are regarded by informed people as “the new Pearl harbor” that the neoconservatives said was necessary in order to begin their wars of conquest in the Middle East. Paul O’Neil, President George W. Bush’s first Treasury Secretary, has stated pubicly that the agenda of President Bush’s first meeting with his cabinet was the invasion of Iraq. This invasion was planned prior to 9/11. Since 9/11 Washington has destroyed in whole or part eight countries and now confronts Russia both in Syria and Ukraine.

I’ve been following Dr. Roberts’ since the mid-2000’s, when his commentary was published by CounterPunch.  Back then everything that has unfolded up til now was regarded as “wild conspiracy theories.”   It’s one thing for an amateur hack like myself to predict an eventual World War, but when someone with the career path of Dr. Roberts puts this reality in front of us, it’s worth reading and heeding:

At this point in time, nuclear war can only be avoided in two ways. One way is for Russia and China to surrender and accept Washington’s hegemony. The other way is for an independent leader in Germany, the UK, or France to rise to office and withdraw from NATO. That would begin a stampede to leave NATO, which is Washington’s prime tool for causing conflict with Russia and, thereby, is the most dangerous force on earth to every European country and to the entire world. If NATO continues to exist, NATO together with the neoconservative ideology of American hegemony will make nuclear war inevitable.

Just for the record, don’t blame this on Obama.  He’s just a pathetic hand-puppet for the real forces of power behind the scenes who are controlling U.S. geopolitical policy – the Deep State.   History will be a harsh judge on Obama’s Presidency, but he’s nothing more than a figure-head who was inserted into the post because he was completely malleable and lacked any DC power base.  Hell, all he wants to do is learn how to tee-off without slicing the ball out of bounds and how to avoid 3-putting every green.

Eric Dubin Of The News Doctors Interviews Ron Paul

The really odoriferous brown stuff is now beginning to connect with the fan blades.  Ron Paul is one of the few former inside officials who feels compelled to try and educate Americans and the world about what fraud  the U.S. Government has become.

Eric Dubin, sounding as serious and professional as I’ve heard him project, conducted an excellent interview of Ron Paul on the heels of RP’s new book, “Swords Into Plowshares.”

RPgraphicI highly recommend spending the time with this interview as Eric uses thoughtful questions to provoke a thoughtful conversation:   SWORDS INTO PLOWSHARES    (note: this link will enable you to download an MP3. You can also access the interview here: LINK

Paul Craig Roberts: The True Motive Behind The Iran Nuclear Treaty

All that the agreement with Iran means is that Washington has belatedly realized that the concocted Iranian and Muslim threats are using up time, energy, and resources that Washington needs to apply to Russia and China.  –  Paul Craig Roberts,  LINK

The U.S. has wasted $6 trillion, thousands of U.S. lives  and 100,000’s of innocent Muslim civilian lives on George W. Bush’s “war on terr-uh.”  Obama rode into the White House on promises to end the insanity and illegal war of the previous administration.  Instead, Obama has escalated and intensified every aspect of the United States’ attempt at global hegemony.

Thus, as Dr. Paul Craig Roberts brilliantly lays out, the real reason for Washington’s deal with Iran was to enable the Department of Defense to re-direct resources and taxpayer money toward its attempt to subjugate Russian and China.

This essay by Dr. Roberts sheds brilliant insight on the real reasons behind the Obama administration’s nuclear agreement with Iran, not the least of which is an attempt  make Iran’s oil freely available to Europe and reduce Europe’s dependence on Russian energy.  He also delineates the true reason for United States’ influence on keeping Greece in the EU.

This is a must-read, must-contemplate essay:   The Real Reason For The Iran Agreement

Although I have  not correctly predicted the path followed and timeframe, predictions I made in conjunction with a few other “truthseekers” about 12 years ago are unfolding as we asserted they would.

I would still stand by my assertion that gold will be restored as the world’s “base” currency, however I now am nearly certain it will never have that chance before a world war erupts – a world war that will likely take humanity back to the Stone Age.  If you want a great vision of what this could look like, read “The Road” by Cormac McCarthy.

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.   –  Albert Einstein

 

Paul Craig Roberts: The Truth Has Been Murdered

The coup in Ukraine is Washington’s effort to thrust a dagger into Russia’s heart. The recklessness of such a criminal act has been covered up by constructing a false reality of a people’s revolution against a corrupt and oppressive government. The world should be stunned that “bringing democracy” has become Washington’s cover for resurrecting a Nazi state.  – Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

What amazes me is how quickly the United States’ news gawkers have forgotten the infamous phone recording of Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland – who is a neocon – that was leaked in which Nuland is heard saying “F&ck the EU” in response to the issue of the EU not supporting U.S. efforts to put its own puppet into power in Ukraine (LINK).

Furthermore, it’s been documented that the U.S. spend $5 billion in Ukraine to help overthrow the previous Government and install its own puppet,  Petro Poroshenko (LINK).

The Western media has created a fictional account of events in Ukraine. The coup organized by the Obama regime that overthrew the elected democratic government in Ukraine is never mentioned. The militias decked out in Nazi symbols are ignored.  – Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Dr. Roberts has authored a must-read commentary on complete death of truthful reporting in the west, especially the United States.  Here’s the link:   Truth Has Been Murdered.

Unfortunately this problem with mainstream U.S. media is getting  worse.  Ironically, with all the facts about what really happened in Ukraine known, one would have thought that Fox News would used as an opportunity to slam Obama and his administration.  But of course, Fox News is first and foremost a neocon-driven news propaganda tool of the highest order.

It’s only a matter time before the Government decides to shut down all alternative news sources on the internet and we will be living in complete Orwellian darkness.

Neoconservativism: Unbridled Political And Financial Terrorism

The real enemy of this country is not the Russians or the Islamic population – it’s the neoconservatives who control your Government.

Wikipedia erroneously attributes the origins of “neoconservatism” to the United States.  In fact, it was a political philosophy that has its roots in Israel.  It’s essence: “kill your enemy and spare no expense.”   It’s a political movement that gained momentum in the U.S. Government, I believe, starting with Henry Kissinger’s influence.  Perhaps there’s earlier roots.   It’s true substance is nothing short of unbridled political  and financial terrorism.  However, it was during the Bush II administration the the neoconservatives gained a stranglehold on the most important avenues of power inside the Government.

“Neoconservatism” is perhaps a misnomer.  It’s more akin to philosophies adopted by the Nazis in Germany and it unmitigatingly has spread its wings over BOTH Republicans and Democrats.   Hillary Clinton is a neocon, for instance.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts has been warning us about the excessively dangerous neocon movement that has gripped our entire political system.  I have had the privilege of several one on one conversations in the course of co-authoring articles with him on the gold market.   I know first-hand that he has a long history of experience in dealing with these people both a  personal and professional basis during the course of his career.  In other words, he understands “the monster” as well if not better than anyone willing to expose it for what it is:

The neoconservatives constitute a war lobby. When one war doesn’t work, they want another. They have an ever expanding war list. Remember, the neoconservatives are the ones who promised us a 3-week “cakewalk” Iraq war costing $70 billion and paid for by Iraq oil revenues. After 8 years of war costing a minimum of $3,000 billion paid for by US taxpayers, the US gave up and withdrew. Today jihadists are carving a new country out of parts of Syria and Iraq…

The wars with Iran and Russia that the New York Times is encouraging will be much more dangerous than the wars with Iraq and Afghanistan. Humanity might not survive them.  – PCR (link below)

That sentiment from the NY Times should only surprise the Democrats and liberals who still believe that the NY Times and the Washington Post are the journalistic bulwarks of freedom and democracy.  They are not.  I noticed during the Bush II regime that both newspapers had become heavy promoters and supporters of all things neoconservative.

The quote above is from Dr. Roberts’ latest piece:   Manufacturing Dissent (LINK).   It is a must-read/must-absorb commentary.   Rest assured that the next election will only serve to transfer neocon power from the Obama government to the successor government, irrespective of political affiliation.   The rhetorical fireworks that will no doubt accompany the next three ring circus campaign season will be only by design – to deflect the truth about what is really happening with your Government (it’s not mine).

Why War Is Inevitable — Paul Craig Roberts

As the US is the Constitution, what was once the United States no longer exists. A different entity has taken its place.

Dr. Roberts has written a must-read article as his gift to the people of the United States on this Memorial Day Weekend. But it’s only a “gift” if people read it and decide to do something about the Government which no longer of by or for the People.

The truth is hard to bear, but the facts are clear. America’s wars have been fought in order to advance Washington’s power, the profits of bankers and armaments industries, and the fortunes of US companies. Marine General Smedley Butler said, “ I served in all commissioned ranks from a second Lieutenant to a Major General. And during that time, I spent most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street, and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism.”

Please take time out to read Dr. Roberts’ article and pass it along to others:   Why War Is Inevitable
