Preparing to escape from the Matrix:  obstacles to overcome

A few months ago, I published the following article on our website:

Here is a brief summary of the problems described and documented in that article:
People worldwide are gradually awakening to the realization that their governments, academic institutions, corporations, international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and even religious institutions have long been waging a predominantly secret, silent war against the general population. This war encompasses:

  • crony capitalism, engineered death, destruction, terrorism, and warfare for profit
  • use of legal deception and fraud to ensnare the masses into a lifetime of economic debt slavery
  • election fraud on a massive and systematic scale
  • political blackmail and subversion of high government officials, judges, military leaders, university professors, and media personalities
  • mass poisoning of food, water, air, vaccines, consumer products
  • mass mind control via popular media, computer technology, and microwave radiation
  • abusive medical treatments; ineffective, toxic, addictive, and ultimately deadly pharmaceuticals
  • dumbing-down of young people via a mentally, morally, and spiritually degrading public educational system
  • human trafficking, sex slavery, pedophilia, child torture and murder, forced organ harvesting

Engineered countercultural movements, social turmoil, and civil wars

Currently, civil unrest has emerged in the USA and in many other countries, punctuated by episodes of deadly violence. Yet many still remain asleep, and much of the violence and malicious rhetoric is fueled by confrontations between the awakened portion of the population and those who remain easily manipulated by mainstream media (MSM) propaganda.

        Civil War Coming to America?
    by Jonathan Roth; 2018 Nov 18   [31min video]
    This speech was given at the Capitalism and Morality seminar in Vancouver, Canada, 2018 July 21. Roth discusses demographic statistics from Cambridge Analytica and other sources regarding the current state of mind in America.

Surprisingly, in many of these violent outbreaks, the perpetrators are not long-suffering victims who are fully aware of the nature of this silent war, who wisely choose to fight oppression with facts, logic, reason, and informed political action. Instead, in many cases violent factions have little idea why they are protesting; when questioned about their motives and goals, they may revert to bellowing slogans or fits of screaming, as hundreds of Youtube videos have documented.

    "In just the first 14 days of October we have seen news (downplayed by the mainstream media) of a tsunami of violence, threats, and harassment of conservatives, including, but not limited to..."

Examination of the organization and funding behind many of these factions reveal a web of control that leads back to elitist, globalist, Deep-State institutions: George Soros and his many international foundations and NGOs, London's secretive Tavistock Institute, Club of Rome, Council on Foreign Relations, Atlantic Council, Operation Gladio, to name only a few of the more notorious. Their hidden motives include population divide-and-rule strategies and intent to discredit otherwise peaceful protest movements; such Deep-State operations have been ongoing worldwide since the early 20th century, and have since escalated in scope and frequency following World War II.

        TAVISTOCK INSTITUTE: An Ongoing Social Engineering Project to Mind Control Humanity
    by The Millennium Report; 2018 Dec 01
    "In 1946, the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations split off a policy-making 'mother of all think tanks,' ... it remains an influential intelligence organization tied to MI6, CIA, Project Paperclip German scientists, The Rockefeller Foundation, and cryptocracy.
    Founder, John Rawlings Rees, claimed: 'Public life, politics and industry should all … be within our sphere of influence…If we are to infiltrate the professional and social activities of other people I think we must imitate the Totalitarians and organize some kind of fifth column activity! We must aim to make it permeate every educational activity in our national life...' "

Socialism and fascism — the dream vs. the historical reality

Within the USA, the MSM portrays this situation as a just another conflict between left and right, Democrats vs. Republicans. In reality, it is more accurately described as a worldwide conflict of nationalists vs. globalists, the awakened vs. the hypnotized sheep, freedom-fighters vs. proponents of the ever-expanding nanny state, who welcome government and corporate control of every aspect of their lives. To those who still trustingly welcome the omnipotent nanny state, ponder the following documented first-hand account of a woman who recalls her childhood during the Nazi Anschluss of 1938 in Austria, which began quite benignly with lofty promises and dreams of a glorious socialist paradise, but which then morphed into ever-increasing, tyrannical control of every aspect of business, social, and family life over a period of 5 years:

To those who may consider any comparisons of modern leftist-progressives with the National Socialists (Nationalsozialismus, or more commonly known as Nazi) of 1930's Germany and Austria to be hyperbole, historian and scholar Dinesh D'Souza explains how the German National Socialists directly borrowed three major ideas from Democrat-initiated or leftist-progressive policies in American history:

  • Hitler knew that the 19th-century Jacksonian Democrats of America — despite treaties with the American Indians — chose to violate these treaties, expel the Indians from their land, drive them further and further west, and kill any Indians who attempted to remain behind. Hitler applied this same model and rationale for territorial conquest to the Poles, Slavs, Russians, and East Europeans.
  • German Nazi legislation for segregation of, discrimination against, and outlawing intermarriage with Jews was directly taken from statutory language of the Jim-Crow American South — which was uniformly under control of the Democratic party — regarding its African-American population.
  • Nazi laws regarding forced sterilization and euthanasia were modeled on existing laws in a number of US states and on policies promoted by American progressive activist Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood.

All the preceding facts, which have been suppressed from academic history texts within the US, are documented by D'Souza in the following articles/videos:

Many naive American leftists attempt to vilify anyone disagreeing with their demands as a "fascist". When asked to define that term, most have no idea of its original meaning as a term of political science.

Fascism:  a governmental system with strong centralized power, permitting no opposition or criticism, controlling all affairs of the nation (industrial, commercial, etc.), emphasizing an aggressive nationalism. — The American College Dictionary, 1967

Is fascism on the "left" or "right" of the political spectrum? Again, D'Souza demolishes the popular misconception that it is a right-wing ideology. The first fascist dictator, Mussolini, established the Italian Marxist movement during the early years of the 20th century, whereupon Vladimir Lenin congratulated "fellow socialist revolutionary" Mussolini for his efforts. Hitler later modeled the German Nazi Party on the Italian fascist template. Western leaders at that time understood that fascism was a leftist ideology that combined socialist economic principles with nationalist political goals, and they consistently referred to it as a leftist ideology in their speeches and publications.

Echoing many of the points made by Dinesh D'Souza, the following article concisely summarizes the 20th-century history of fascism, leaving no doubt that fascism is a form socialism; this fact was openly acknowledged by all its leaders.

        European Union Prepares For Possible Trump 2020 Loss With Historic American Citizen Travel Ban
    [Primary topic: A concise summary of the 20th-century history of national-socialism/fascism]
    by Sorcha Faal; 2019 Mar 09
    "Paying very close attention while President Franklin Roosevelt and Benito Mussolini heaped praise on each other over the creation of this new fascist-socialist movement, this report continues, was the leader of The National Socialist German Workers’ Party (National-Sozialistische Deutsche Abeiterpartei — NSDAP)—who was Adolph Hitler."

For sheer murderousness, the German National Socialists are by no means an exceptional case. Read on. I devote several additional sections of this article to various authors who discuss the Soviet (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) and Communist Chinese (the People's Republic of China) governments, which together had murdered over 100 million of their own people, far exceeding even the largest estimates of Nazi atrocities during World War II. It is astounding to me that many young people in America do not know these facts, as they are no longer taught at public schools. By the time I had completed my university education in 1980, I had taken multiple history courses throughout high school and college that had covered various aspects of this subject.


How is the "mind-body-spirit" mantra of the New Age holding up to political reality?

Having studied and practiced as an herbalist for over 30 years, some of those years in hyper-liberal urban enclaves like the San Francisco Bay Area, Silicon Valley, and the Denver-Boulder metro area of Colorado, I've long been aware of an irksome hypocrisy within the alternative health and New Age communities. The vast majority of schools of alternative health are located in strongly leftist, urban enclaves. Almost all these schools claim to simultaneously espouse the holistic mantra of mind-body-spirit as well as the hyper-leftist, globalist, nation-busting political views typical of their environs or, at a minimum, refuse to discuss any political philosophies that "stray off the plantation". So, I ask, what happens when graduates of such schools are faced with conservative/libertarian-minded clients who present with health and life issues directly involving the dreaded specter of politics? Consider the following common scenarios occurring now all over America, similar to the vitriolic rhetoric, rioting, and extreme political polarization preceding the first American Civil War:

  • Families have split over political differences, in many cases, refusing even to speak to each other.
  • Violent urban riots have periodically erupted featuring clashes between opposing political groups.
  • Threats of murder and assassination are rampant on social media and by mainstream journalists and even politicians — the overwhelming majority of these being perpetrated by extreme leftists.
  • Threats by extreme leftists (and other groups favored by the left) of terrorism, murder, and assassination go unchallenged by corporate social media platforms while conservatives and libertarians are massively censored for their views on corrupt and criminal politicians, questioning vaccine safety, discussing medical cannabis, exposing institutional pedophilia, child rape and murder, and Satanic ritual abuse.

          Magic, Manic and Monstrous: How Facebook is Programming Us
      by Socrates; 2018 Mar 29
      "in the end, their intelligence, money, power, and technology helped them to do infinitely more damage than good. ...Story is the most powerful tool in the world. And military and political leaders have known and used narrative as a weapon for millennia. Because if one can control and manipulate your story one can control and manipulate you."
          "Twitter Is Biased Against Conservatives - That's A Fact": Tim Pool Destroys Twitter CEO In Heated 3.5 Hour Interview
      by Tyler Durden; 2019 Mar 05
      "...the implicit bias in the social media will... force people who hold non-standard, 'accepted' views ... into ever darker corners of the web and the endgame is already apparent — a second civil war"

That such "holistic" practitioners can claim to respect mind-body-spirit philosophy while refusing to address concerns that are now affecting the daily lives and well-being of us all is astounding and intolerable. It is the most blatant hypocrisy. Many conservatives and libertarians, like myself, refuse to remain silent. We have been pushed beyond our line in the sand, we have regained our voices, and we will no longer back down from confrontation.

In traditional Chinese philosophy, chaos vs. order is a fundamental aspect of the Yin-Yang polarity governing the cosmos. When individual humans, societies, or nations tend toward either extreme of chaos vs. order, they become imbalanced. Healthy self-awareness leads to perception of such imbalances, allowing the affected individuals and groups to contemplate, acknowledge, discuss, analyze, strategize, experiment, and eventually to resolve these imbalances. If open and honest human communication is thwarted, however, such imbalances can lead to tragedy: the ill health and death of individuals, the disintegration of families, communities, and nations, and, in extreme cases, world wars and planetary destruction.

Habitually lying to ourselves and to others and allowing others to lie to us without challenge or rebuttal have dire consequences. The greater the lies, the more extreme the consequences. If such lies are carefully woven into a systematic whole that encompasses dysfunctional economics, distorted ethics and political science, falsified history, religious dogma, and pseudo-science by means of propaganda, political correctness, and censorship, an artificial matrix reality — a Malevolent Control Matrix (MCM) — can be created that has power to hypnotize entire populations, who willingly submit to the dictates of their psychopathic MCM-controllers.

When healthy, functioning societies identify psychopathic behavior within their midst, the perpetrators are shunned, prosecuted legally, isolated, and/or confined to some sphere of action in which their distorted talents might be harnessed toward some positive goal. However, in a society that has fallen under the spell of the MCM, hypnotized humans go about their daily lives literally not seeing what appears daily before their very eyes. Such people may not merely pretend to be blind; many truly believe that the MCM is their only reality. Psychopathic behavior, especially when perpetrated by "experts" and authority figures, is assumed to be normal and is rarely questioned. Those rare individuals who publicly call out such psychopathic behavior are labelled "conspiracy theorists", "radicals", or "extremists". The men behind the curtain who control the Matrix are terrified of exposure by conspiracy researchers, for these Matrix-men have perpetrated the most gargantuan conspiracy in human history. The following essay explains what happens to government under such conditions:

        Mr. Sociopath Goes To Washington
    by John Hunt via; 2019 Feb 13
    "Government holds the monopoly on the legal power to initiate force against the innocent. In other words, government has given itself the legal right to break natural law. Sociopaths live their lives defying natural law. You can see how politics (the control of government) is therefore a safe and attractive home for sociopaths.
    ...It’s simply what happens when we allow government to grow. Washington has grown until it has become intensely attractive to the worst sort of semi-human scum."

The subject material of these latest articles has been one of most difficult and emotionally challenging of anything I have ever written, perhaps because it probes into dungeons of the human psyche that inevitably induce discomfort, denial, rage, incredulity, and even insanity in some listeners.


Confronting our individual and collective Shadows — psycho-historical perspectives

Jordan Peterson and Carl Gustav Jung — the Shadow

For many decades, I have been disturbed by the mismatch between mind-body-spirit philosophy and the absence of practical application of this philosophy within many alternative health and New Age communities — hypocrisy. Why does this mismatch persist, and what can we do about it? In the following video lecture, Jordan Peterson answers a related question that I believe offers the key:

Peterson explains why enlightenment can be a terrifying process, requiring each of us to recognize within ourselves the potential for evil. He defines evil as the conscious, intentional infliction of suffering on others, far beyond the suffering that results from our own limitations and the ordinary constraints and misfortunes of living in the world. To reach enlightenment requires each of us to acknowledge the nature of our own Shadow, an idea that was popularized by psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung, but which can be traced back to many ancient spiritual traditions. The terrifying aspects of one's Shadow lead many to shun this confrontation and to settle for enlightenment substitutes. One tell-tale sign of individuals who have settled for substitutes (e.g., comforting mantras, feel-goodisms, and hucksters of the prosperity gospel) is the tendency to reject consideration of any "negative" thoughts and ideas, for such might lead to vexatious glimpses of this Shadow.

Before we delve further into such seemingly esoteric issues, the following summary of Jung's work by free-market libertarian Brandon Smith explains why we should all care about the Shadow, the nature of evil, and sociopathy/psychopathy and how these destructive influences have infiltrated many globalist institutions and political movements:

        Luciferianism: A Secular Look At A Destructive Globalist Belief System
    by Brandon Smith; 2019 Feb 06
    "Over many years of investigating the mechanics of global events and the people behind them I have become perhaps a little obsessed with one particular subject – the source and motivations of evil. This fascination does not stem from a simple morbid curiosity, but a strategic need to understand an enemy. Much like an exterminator needs to understand the behavior of cockroaches to be effective, I seek to understand the behavior and nature of organized evil.
    ...Saul Alinsky, a high level leftist organizer and democrat gatekeeper, praises the rebellious Lucifer in the personal acknowledgments of his political manual 'Rules For Radicals', ..."

That the preceding article was written by a secularist author who ordinarily focuses on economic systems and free-market issues only lends it more credibility. All too many of us have been programmed by the MSM and by our culture to reflexively dismiss such ideas as the ravings of religious fanatics, in spite of the numerous credible reports of Satanic/Luciferian groups who actively and systematically perpetrate ritualistic abuses on human victims, which are considered heinous crimes in all civilized nations.

According to Jung and Peterson, if one is entirely unaware of one's Shadow, it tends to conjure up a series of misadventures and tragedies in one's life. To such unaware, unawakened individuals, these events may seem beyond one's control and entirely the fault of external agents and actors — in extreme cases, appearing as if demons have been summoned from the pits of hell. Such individuals will instinctively blame everyone but themselves for their problems. The modern leftist phenomenon of group identity politics plays right into this mindset by encouraging various oppressed groups (defined by gender, race and skin color, ethnicity, and economic class) to glorify their own victimhood. Instead of striving for self-empowerment, identity-politics players become embroiled in endless squabbles over which groups have more privilege, who are the more oppressed and victimized, and who should be blamed as the victimizers. Group identity politics leads to endless conflict and is ultimately enervating and exhausting, because, according to Peterson, only individuals can exercise rights and responsibilities.

To compel individuals to seek their rights and privileges by means of some arbitrarily defined group identity — there are innumerable ways that we can subdivide ourselves into groups, subgroups, tribes, etc. — is to strip those individuals of their personal power and their natural rights as autonomous beings possessing free will. It was for this very reason that European civilization, from the Renaissance through the Enlightenment, increasingly acknowledged that human rights ultimately derive from the relationship between each self-actualized, self-responsible man/woman and the Universal-Source-Creator. Powers of government and all other human institutions derive only from the natural law that is necessarily implied by such relationships and from the mutual informed, knowing, voluntary, and willful consent of such individuals.

If we seek out the intellectual and philosophical roots of identity politics, we will find ourselves going back in time to the late 1960's, when news reports, documentaries, and newly authored history texts chronicled the industrial-scale murderousness of the Soviet-Marxist government. Marxist academics and theoreticians realized they had a serious problem of public perception. Feeble attempts were made to excuse the past as a product of imperfect implementation of an essentially sound political doctrine. However, Jordan Peterson and Stephen Blackwood (see video interview, below) systematically demolish this argument by pointing out the numerous 20th-century instances of where Marxism had been tried and failed, with equally bloody consequences, most notoriously in Communist China where an estimated 100 million were murdered by their own government. Modern Marxist academics proceeded to repackage Marxist doctrine as "post-modernism" and "identity politics" by the magician's trick of misdirection, slyly side-stepping the essential failure of Marxism as a tool for ushering in the utopian state. Instead of the old-fashioned economic class warfare of Karl Marx, modern Marxists discarded the rhetoric of classic Marxism and substituted it with an entirely new lexicon based on the post-modernist politics of oppressed victim groups, as defined primarily by gender, race, and ethnicity.

    [Listen to the first 30 minutes for discussion of the transition from classical Marxism to post-modernism and identity politics. The remainder of the discussion focuses on the primacy of the individual as the focus of classical liberal, Judeo-Christian philosophy.]

Alexander Solzhenitsyn:  The Soviet era and a warning to the West

Another widely revered prognosticator of western civilization, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, in a powerful speech delivered at a Harvard University graduation of 1978, scolded the West for its obsession with self-indulgent materialism at the expense of its soul, a warning and prophecy that, 40 years later, seems to have largely fallen on deaf ears. The superficial spirituality of the occidental New Age, with its comforting mantras and feel-goodisms, is no match for the existential crisis that now confronts the West. We are terrified of our own Shadow, and our politicians are only too eager to oblige our fears by projecting it onto foreign bogeymen.

At the time of Solzhenitsyn's 1978 Harvard lecture, he had been a Soviet expatriate living in the U.S. for 3 years. He chose to return to his homeland of Russia after the Soviet Union collapsed in 1990. Modern Russia, in contrast to the U.S., has undergone a spiritual resurgence remarkable in scope. Since the Soviet collapse, the Russian government has restored thousands of churches, shrines, monasteries, and seminaries to their original condition, as if in rebuke to the atrocities and savage destruction of culture perpetrated during the Soviet era. These policies are widely supported by the Russian people, many of whom covertly held to their religious and spiritual traditions during the 7 decades of Soviet repression.

Igor Shafarevich:  a comprehensive world history of socialism

In his lecture, Solzhenitsyn references the meticulous, scholarly history of socialism by Igor Shafarevich, which is a historical exposé of the failings of socialism over the entire span of recorded human history, from ancient Mesopotamia to the 20th century. Shafarevich was an internationally renowned mathematician and opponent of the Soviet regime, and his political writings circulated for many years via the samizdat networks that had been established to help publicize suppressed Soviet authors. A public-domain download of this formerly rare volume may be accessed here:

        Socialist Phenomenon
    by Igor Shafarevich; 1975, 1980 English translation from the Russian
    [public Domain, download of full text; foreword by Alexander Solzhenitsyn]
    "Examines the history and development of socialism tracing its origins back to ancient times and the medieval heresies to its supposed scientific development under Karl Marx and his followers."

Shafarevich argues that a basic principle of socialism throughout human history has been the urge to suppress individuality, and that it is essentially nihilistic, unconsciously motivated by a death instinct and a visceral hatred of the power of individual creativity and autonomy to succeed where collectivism has failed. In this respect, Shafarevich's views coincide with those of Jordan Peterson.

David Wilcock:  practical advice for facing one's Shadow, bad psychedelic trips

David Wilcock is a popular American author on metaphysical topics, and he has a knack for giving practical insights in plain language. In the following video discussion, he and his hosts explore the similarities of exploring one's Shadow, dealing with psychedelic "bad trips", and the terror and emotional turmoil that many people are now experiencing in facing up to current world events and industrial-scale, institutionalized evil. Wilcock's views on the Shadow and on Jungian psychology dovetail with those of Jordan Peterson, but many readers may find Wilcock's style more easy-going and congenial.

        Deep State can't stop the Great Awakening: DAVID WILCOCK Exclusive Interview [Part 5]
    by David Wilcock and the Edge of Wonder; 2019 Feb 25   [45min video]
    "There is a definitely an awakening happening in the world and the #DeepState is not going to be able to stop it!. #TheGreatAwakening is starting to flow into every aspect of our society including President Trump's recent speech. But the question is are we ready? What do we need to do to be prepared and how will this affect our lives?"

The false choice of socialism vs. corrupt crony capitalism

Our present American dilemma is that our economic and financial system is so fraught with corruption and has deviated so far from the classical liberal ideal of free markets that many choose socialism out of frustration and desperation; people on all sides of the political spectrum acknowledge that the current system is failing many. Homelessness, drug abuse and addiction, and social breakdown are relentlessly worsening and by all sane measures of economic wellbeing, we seem to be on a trajectory toward disaster. We are being forced to choose between the two tyrannical polarities of corrupt crony capitalism and socialism, both choices representing top-down control by a self-appointed elite hierarchy; neither offers much hope when objectively analyzed. If rational debate regarding potential solutions becomes impossible, is there any way out of our dilemma?

The three articles listed below explore the key characteristics of crony capitalism. The first explains why socialism, with its top-down control of the economy by technocrats, shares many of the same defects as crony capitalism, just gussied up in different rhetorical garb. Both systems inevitably fall into the hands of ambitious sociopaths, who are attracted toward power like flies to a dung hill; subsequently, the levers of government become accessible only to their cronies, who had abetted their ascent of the power hierarchy. The third article in the series addresses what many consider to be the primary fatal flaw of both crony capitalism and of almost every single socialist government on the planet currently: private central banks, which have the power to generate new money out of nothing and "loan" it out to governments, favored banks, and financial institutions at interest. In such an economy, those parasites closest to nation's source of financial blood flowing from the central bank get rich at the expense of the 99.9%.

        The Fallacies of Bernie Sanders
    by David Gordon; 2016 Nov 28
    "It does not seem so much a capitalist system in the United States as a crony capitalism in which individuals get rich, not by supplying good products and services at the lowest possible cost for consumers, but rather by getting monopoly protections or other favors from government or by otherwise benefiting from government actions or connections.
    ...By neglecting to distinguish crony capitalism from genuine capitalism, Sanders is led to propose 'cures' that would only intensify the disease he diagnoses."
    [This article contains a concise description of the main characteristics of 'crony capitalism'.]
        Property Rights Take a Hit
    by Peter Schiff; 2009 Jun 13
    "'Crony capitalism' is a term often applied to foreign nations where government interference circumvents market forces. The practice is widely associated with tin-pot dictators and second-rate economies. In such a system, support for the ruling regime is the best and only path to economic success. Who you know supersedes what you know, and favoritism trumps the rule of law. ...the phrase now more aptly describes our own country [USA]."
        The Era of Fiat Currency Capitalism
    by by Paul Rosenberg; 2013 Jun 20
    "Our daily money is created by politically-favored groups who have been granted monopolies on the creation of currency. (They are referred to in polite company as central bankers.) They create our money, from nothing, and all others are forbidden from doing so. If that sounds crazy, it’s because it is.
    ...This change from redeemable money to fiat currency has affected Western life immensely. For more than 40 years, life in the West has been based on money with no value, which has spawned a lot of other things that have no value."

However, in recent years, and in spite of the social turmoil we are all witnessing, I also see signs that our current crisis has triggered a rapid awakening of a critical mass of people within America and many other nations. We have more than the two false choices presented to us by the MSM media and by the elite Eastern Establishment that have controlled American politics for at least the previous century.


Time for action:  I'm shifting my focus to help awaken more people

Over the previous 25 years, I have been intensively involved in creating what many have called the best and most thorough Chinese herbology online course available. In 2017, components of that course — the expert system modules — received international recognition (5th place) in the Herbal Medicine Awareness Competition sponsored by UCLA's Center for East-West Medicine. That project is now mostly completed and requires much less of my time creating, developing, and debugging — RMHI currently offers a comprehensive self-study course that is self-perpetuating, largely self-explanatory, and easy to use.

While I continue to actively interact with students in our Chinese herbology curriculum, for the past few years I have devoted myself to an entirely new project. Given that so many people in America are now confronted with extraordinary life challenges that go far beyond which herbs to take for their maladies, I have decided to shift gears to match the needs of the time.

Ever since I served as the volunteer county coordinator for Ron Paul's failed presidential campaign in 2008, I have sponsored an email newsletter, free subscriptions to which were reserved primarily for fellow libertarians and conservatives whom I had met during that campaign; over the years, some of our subscribers have been elected to public office, and almost all are active within their local communities. Without exception, our subscribers are dissatisfied with the shallow, gossipy, and frequently devious news coverage typical of the MSM; they are "deep divers" and appreciate articles and documentaries that explore the hidden history, motives, and economics lurking beneath the surface of current events.


Newsletter topics and contents

Over the intervening years, the newsletter has expanded its scope to include a daily (occasionally twice-daily) summary of world news and recommended reading spanning the following topics:

  • USA news
  • World/international news
  • Science and technology
  • Economics and libertarian principles
  • Political action; self-help education on law, natural rights
  • #GreatAwakening, #QAnon
  • "Deep diving": historical, cultural, legal, religious/philosophical, and psychological roots of unfolding events
  • Occasional coverage of local issues, including of Montana and other regions per interest of our members.

The references section of my recent "ikigai" article comprises articles and documentaries that had appeared in previous issues of the newsletter — that article will give you a good idea of the type of content I typically include in our daily "Deep diving" section, which has a breadth and depth of subject matter that very few individual alternative media websites encompass.

Additionally, included is a once-weekly issue focused exclusively on health news:

  • Herbal medicine, diet and nutrition — ideas, research, clinical applications
  • Legislation affecting our health freedom, the right to choose
  • Environmental illness and toxicity
  • Hazards of EMFs
  • Modern diseases, epidemics
  • Prepping ideas
  • Vaccinations, the research evidence, vaccine rights, dealing with aggressive medical practitioners
  • Education, homeschooling ideas, legal rights

Hopeful signs for the future

Throughout the previous 8 years, our newsletter has regularly presented overwhelming evidence that, at least since the presidency of John F. Kennedy, a faction of patriotic insiders within the US government recognized the very dangers that I have outlined in this article and formulated a long-term plan to counter the Deep-State, NWO Cabal's dark objectives for world domination. After JFK's assassination in 1963, this faction recognized that they had greatly underestimated the power and extent of the Deep State. Consequently, their plan went into deep cover, with many of their agents embedding themselves within the power structure as long-term "sleepers".

Within the past year, our subscribers are seeing almost daily evidence that the Cabal is now being defeated at all levels. Publicly visible signs of this defeat are discussed in the following two videos:

If for some reason any of the preceding videos have been censored/deleted, do an Internet search for the title using a search engine like Yippy, DuckDuckGo, or Dogpile.

Is QAnon fake news, a psyop, or the fantasy of conspiracy theorists, as the MSM would have us all believe? Millions worldwide are now following the Q chronicles. In a series of detailed analyses starting soon after Qanon came onto the Internet scene in late October of 2017, researcher Michael Salla concludes that Qanon is most likely a small team of high-level military intelligence officers who are working closely with President Trump to provide a direct channel to communicate with the American people. If this is all true, is Trump having the last laugh at the expense of the "Fake News", an epithet he is fond of using when referring to the corrupted corporate media?

By now, you probably have figured out that there is much happening on planet earth that the MSM refuses to even acknowledge. The Internet is huge, and valuable information is tucked away in obscure crannies, buried amidst a vastly larger heap of pure dross, idle gossip, trivia, and balderdash. Many major search engines and social media have been caught massively censoring content, so you cannot rely on those for anything "off the plantation". A key to finding this information is simply knowing where to look, knowing which websites and journalists have a track record of delving deeply into controversial issues and verifying their sources. Since 2008, with the help of our subscribers, I've uncovered a gold-mine of information and would like to share it with a discerning audience who will help spread the message to their friends and compatriots. I look forward to hearing from you.
