Headlines were made last week when the results of an experiment by two New York University professors went viral. The study was designed to demonstrate gender bias by reenacting the 2016 presidential debates between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, except the gender for each was reversed. In other words, a woman recited the statements of Trump and a male reenacted Hillary Clinton’s original comments made during the debates.
The goal of the ‘Her Opponent’ project was to prove that people would not have accepted Trump’s aggressive behavior had it come from a woman, and that Hillary’s debate style would be much more likable if she were a man.Ironically, the exact opposite happened.
The professors and audiences of the mock debates, however, were ‘unsettled’ to discover that the opposite was true – Trump became more likable as a woman and Hillary became even less likable as a man.At last. Although it took a scientific observation to remove the prejudice against Trump’s gender, these people could FINALLY see what the tolerant, open-minded “Deplorable” voters saw all along.
Reading about this experiment inspired me to consider other ways by which conceptual bridges might be built to span the ever-growing ideological gulf now separating America’s blue state people from her red state citizens. The following is my proposed plan of action:
Neo in the Matrix – Blue Pill, Red Pill
I would start out by asking any interested, liberal-leaning persons if they have viewed the Matrix Trilogy in order to establish a common understanding. For those who have not seen this science fiction series, I would explain how the actor Keanu Reeves plays a hacker by the name of Neo who learns his entire world is a digital universe created by computers which had enslaved the human race. In the first movie, a member of the “resistance”, named Morpheus (played by Lawrence Fishburne), entered the Matrix to recruit Neo by asking him to ingest a red pill to learn truth or a blue pill, whereby nothing would change.
Neo chose the red pill and, in turn, “woke up” to discover he was nothing more than a living “battery” whose body was electrically charging the computer simulation along with hundreds of thousands of other poor souls dreaming in a digital world.
For those who are philosophically inclined and scientifically minded, I would refer them to academics in the field of philosophy like, Nick Bostrom, and astrophysicists, including Neil deGrasse Tyson, who, today, propose our entire universe may actually be a simulation.
Neo in the Matrix digesting the red pill and waking up in a world of truth might be a good way to begin dividing my hypothetical “blue-state people” from the “hive”.
Bubblevison: The Mainstream Media
Next, I would inform my liberal “guinea pigs” that only six corporations control 90% of the media today and how these corporations comprise what is called “The Mainstream Media”. This means a little over 200 media executives control the information regimen of near 300 million Americans. If this was NOT true, then how else could the following video be explained?
I would then make mention of Sigmund Freud’s nephew, Edward Bernays, who was the famous pioneer in the field of public relations and author of the book “Propaganda”, in which he wrote:
The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. …In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.I would also quote Adolf Hitler’s Reich Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, and his assertion that:
A lie told once remains a lie but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth.Then, knowing my liberal subjects would have most likely heard of Trump’s accused collusion with Russia and the alleged hacking of the 2016 presidential election, I would inform them of the recent WikiLeaks Vault 7 revelations and the program entitled UMBRAGE whereby American intelligence agencies were revealed to have the ability to counterfeit internet hacks from other countries.
Next, I would point out how the Wikileaks dump occurred on Wednesday, March 8, 2017 and, by Thursday, the next day, there were no Russian election hacking stories in any of the mainstream media. Zero.
“How could this be?” I would ask my blue-state identifying test subjects before continuing into the next stages of experimental elucidation.
The Military Industrial Complex & Secret Societies
In his farewell address on January 17, 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower challenged the American people with the following solemn warning:
In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.On April 27, 1961, John F. Kennedy spoke before the American Newspaper Publishers Association in an address that later became known as his “Secret Society” speech. In this address, President Kennedy stated:
For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence: on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.Thirty months later, President Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963.
In the documented annals of history, two twentieth-century American Presidents warned regarding very distinct threats to the citizens of the United States. I would ask my test subjects to consider if these revealed threats might have diminished or become stronger over the past several decades.
The Deep State
Over time, more and more public figures have been referring to what has become known as the Deep State. Congressional aide, Mike Lofgren, who retired after 28 years on Capitol Hill, has written a book regarding the Rise of a Shadow Government. Conservative radio host, Rush Limbaugh, refers to the Deep State as unelected influential bureaucrats working to consolidate government power, often against the will of the American voter. Even liberal news outlets have published articles about it; and politicians, like Ron Paul, have railed against what he has identified as the Police State.
I would ask my test subjects if they have noticed our ever-expanding surveillance society and the increasing militarization of police departments around the country, followed by the question: “How did we get here?”
Then, I would gently introduce them to the concept of “order out of chaos”.
The Hegelian Dialectic – Ordo ab Chao
There are some who claim governments achieve specific goals via “ordo ab chao”; or “order out of chaos”. In other words, “conflicts bring change” and “controlled conflict brings controlled change”. This means whenever you hear a politician speak of “change”, “hope and change”, or “fundamental change” what they really are promising is conflict in order to bring about their desired results.
This is done through the use of the Hegelian Dialectic; a method of operation made known during the 1800s by the German philosopher George Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel. The Hegelian method creates change when a “thesis” is transformed into an “antithesis” and then resolved by “synthesis”. A simpler way to describe it is as follows:
Crisis (thesis) + Solutions (antithesis) = Change (Synthesis)Many speculate the Hegelian Dialectic was responsible for the financial crisis of 1906 leading to the Federal Reserve Act of 1913; World War I creating League of Nations; World War II forming the United Nations; the 911 attacks bringing about the Patriot Act with the ensuing societal surveillance; and the War on Terror combined with the ongoing collapse of our current Bretton Woods financial system (that began in 2008); the international migration crisis and the increased breakdown of civil law in the Western nations now guiding us into a political and economic New World Order.
If this becomes too much for my liberal test subjects to process, I would simply dial it back to Edward Snowden’s revelations regarding the modern-day surveillance state, the NSA, TSA, CIA and all of the other alphabet soup government agencies violating the Fourth Amendment right of American citizens against “unreasonable searches and seizures” without “probable cause”:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.I would ask my test subjects to consider the following quote by former President Gerald Ford:
A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.And, finally, I would use the quote above to transition my control group into an understanding of how the governments of western nations “purchase” their citizens via consumer debt and welfare benefits.
The Federal Reserve
In his 1994 book “The Creature from Jekyll Island”, author G. Edward Griffin wrote about the birth of the Federal Reserve System, which occurred at a clandestine meeting at Jekyll Island, Georgia in 1910. In the aforementioned book, the wonders of paper (fiat) money are explored along with the magic of fractional reserve banking which induced the inflationary death spiral of our American currency over the last century. I would further describe the Ponzi scheme that finances war and enriches global bankers at the expense of the common people.
In addition to helping my liberal subjects to understand how there is nothing “federal” regarding the Federal Reserve because it is a privately held corporation; the mechanics of fiat financial manipulations would also be explained and how it all contributes to the ultimate objective of global totalitarianism.
According to Griffin:
The Fed has become an accomplice in the support of totalitarian regimes throughout the world. As stated at the beginning of this study, that is one of the reasons it should be abolished: It is an instrument of totalitarianism.Before moving forward to the next stage of understanding, I would need to make sure my observed control group understood how slavery is rooted in economics and the truth behind the ancient proverb:
“The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender.”Cloward-Piven
The author, Ayn Rand, once said:
The difference between a welfare state and a totalitarian state is a matter of time.Under the eight years of President Barack Obama, food stamp usage increased 32% and the national debt grew by 86%. Obama graduated Columbia University which also was the academic home of the professors Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, who developed a strategy to:
… bring about the fall of capitalism by overloading and undermining government bureaucracy.Sound familiar? It seems like an awful lot of community organizing to me.
Its supporting tactics include flooding government with impossible demands until it slowly cranks to a stop; overloading electoral systems with successive tidal waves of new voters, many of them bogus, shaking down banks, politicians in Congress, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development for affirmative-action borrowing; and, now, pulling down the national financial system by demanding exotic, subprime mortgages for low-income Americans with little hope of repaying their loans…
… much of their strategy was drawn from Saul Alinsky, Chicago’s notorious revolutionary Marxist community organizer.
I would ask my test subjects if they knew of the connections between Saul Alinsky, Obama, and Hillary Clinton: That Obama actually taught a college course at the University Of Chicago entitled “Alinsky Tactics 101” and Hillary’s college senior thesis endorsed the cause of Alinksy whose own book, “Rules for Radicals”, acknowledged Lucifer.
Hunger for A Global Agenda
Next, I would use the film “Hunger Games” as an example of prophecy, or perhaps, psychological programming, designed to transition the masses into accepting the Agenda 21 plan for a global-fascist dictatorship.
For those who were unfamiliar with “Hunger Games”, it would be explained as a book and film series which chronicles the totalitarian state of Panem, a fictional North American post-apocalyptic scientific dictatorship where the extravagant elite lead luxurious lives of high society in a shining citadel of fortified power while the workers, plebs and serfs all suffer in abject poverty throughout twelve prison districts.
For those who were unfamiliar with the global initiative that is Agenda 21, I would reveal its definition as:
I would then explain to my test group the real deception behind Agenda 21; that is how it promises to benefit future generations of mankind when, in truth, those behind U.N. Agenda 21 desire to reduce world population.a non-binding, voluntarily implemented action plan of the United Nations with regard to sustainable development. It is a product of the Earth Summit (UN Conference on Environment and Development) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992. It is an action agenda for the UN, other multilateral organizations, and individual governments around the world that can be executed at local, national, and global levels. The “21” in Agenda 21 refers to the 21st Century.
The British public speaker, journalist, governmental advisor and former political candidate, Lord Monckton, once described Agenda 21 as:
a United Nations action plan which aims to depopulate the nations, impose a world government and usher in the return of Communism.
If, at this point, my liberal minded subjects attempt to label me a “conspiracy theorist”, I would remind them how this term was coined in 1967 by the U.S Central Intelligence Agency’s Clandestine Services Unit in a dispatch marked “psychological operations” designed to diminish investigative questioning of official government narratives.
I would then ask my test group: “Besides, how can it be conspiracy if it’s all been published?”
Today, there are entire websites devoted to the cause of population reduction, complete with quotes from famous historical and contemporary luminaries alike.
Perhaps this is why some of the wealthy elite are planning to retreat underground and into their pre-prepared doomsday bunkers. Of course, they know what’s coming because they’ve been speaking for many years regarding their overt desire to see world population reduced.
CNN founder, Ted Turner, once stated his dream of: “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels” as being “ideal” which closely corresponds to the first of the secular globalist Ten Commandments as revealed on the Georgia Guidestones, as follows:
Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.From seven billion current souls on earth to a few hundred million. That is quite a reduction.
The American military contractor, Deagel, with ties to the U.S. Navy, the NSA and the CIA, made headlines recently when they forecasted a U.S. population decrease from 321 million in 2015 to only 61 million by the year 2025. In addition, they are also predicting massive declines to America’s Gross Domestic Product and Military Budgets.
Could this be why hollow point ammunition is being purchased in the last several years by multiple U.S. government agencies including the Postal Service? The Postal Service? WTF? If the ammunition is destined to be used for governmental agency target practice, then why would they want to incur the additional expense for “jacketed hollow-point” ammo that is engineered to cause maximum damage to the human body?
Also, what are we to make of 2,700 armored vehicles recently acquired by the DHS and the previously mentioned militarization of police departments around the country?
A War Being Waged Over You
Although there are some who lament the jingoistic League of Nationalists like President Donald Trump and his American Deplorables, The UK Independence Party in Britain, Marine Le Pen of the National Front in France, Austria’s Freedom Party and Geert Wilders of the Netherlands, it really has become battle of sovereign nations fighting against global hegemony; of individual freedom versus collectivist tyranny.
Here in America, the phenomenon behind Trump definitely transcends “left-right” politics and is predicated, instead, upon a man who is viewed by voters in both parties as one who loves his country, is financially independent and unafraid to speak truth to power.
Just eight days before Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration, the New York Times reported on an unprecedented action initiated by President Obama:
In its final days, the Obama administration has expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.It is no wonder why the corrupt establishment politicos, political commentariat, Neocons and the operatives within the Deep State desired to expand their communications, while simultaneously increasing the chances of national security leaks, prior to Trump taking office. Perhaps these measures were put into place so the Washington Post could later blame any leaks on Trump for being a “clueless child” and not because he was surveilled in Trump Tower.
The new rules significantly relax longstanding limits on what the N.S.A. may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations, which are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. These include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches.
The globalists, the entrenched agents of the Deep State, and the purchased Establishment Neocon Politicians are threatened because their grip on the reins of power are being challenged by a big-haired billionaire whose very existence is daily exposing widespread governmental corruption, collusion, and deceit.
The Deep State desires global domination via Agenda 21, the demise of constitutional law and the abolishment of national sovereignty in order to implement their final plans for worldwide depopulation.
President Donald Trump wants to make America great again. The globalists want you dead. Perhaps this is why the Deep State and the captured corporate media are promoting a war with Russia.
I would then ask my blue-state identifying test subjects: “Have you even considered that? Why not?”
