Understanding Evil: From Globalism To Pizzagate

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com,

I have spent the better part of the last 10 years working diligently to investigate and relate information on economics and geopolitical discourse for the liberty movement. However, long before I delved into these subjects my primary interests of study were the human mind and the human “soul” (yes, I’m using a spiritual term).

My fascination with economics and sociopolitical events has always been rooted in the human element. That is to say, while economics is often treated as a mathematical and statistical field, it is also driven by psychology. To know the behavior of man is to know the future of all his endeavors, good or evil.

Evil is what we are specifically here to discuss. I have touched on the issue in various articles in the past including Are Globalists Evil Or Just Misunderstood, but with extreme tensions taking shape this year in light of the U.S. election as well as the exploding online community investigation of “Pizzagate,” I am compelled to examine it once again.

I will not be grappling with this issue from a particularly religious perspective. Evil applies to everyone regardless of their belief system, or even their lack of belief. Evil is secular in its influence.

The first and most important thing to understand is this — evil is NOT simply a social or religious construct, it is an inherent element of the human psyche. Carl Gustav Jung was one of the few psychologists in history to dare write extensively on the issue of evil from a scientific perspective as well as a metaphysical perspective.  I highly recommend a book of his collected works on this subject titled 'Jung On Evil', edited by Murray Stein, for those who are interested in a deeper view.

To summarize, Jung found that much of the foundations of human behavior are rooted in inborn psychological contents or “archetypes.”  Contrary to the position of Sigmund Freud, Jung argued that while our environment may affect our behavior to a certain extent, it does not make us who we are. Rather, we are born with our own individual personality and grow into our inherent characteristics over time. Jung also found that there are universally present elements of human psychology. That is to say, almost every human being on the planet shares certain truths and certain natural predilections.

The concepts of good and evil, moral and immoral, are present in us from birth and are mostly the same regardless of where we are born, what time in history we are born and to what culture we are born. Good and evil are shared subjective experiences.  It is this observable psychological fact (among others) that leads me to believe in the idea of a creative design — a god.  Again, though, elaborating on god is beyond the scope of this article.

To me, this should be rather comforting to people, even atheists.  For if there is observable evidence of creative design, then it would follow that there may every well be a reason for all the trials and horrors that we experience as a species.  Our lives, our failures and our accomplishments are not random and meaningless.  We are striving toward something, whether we recognize it or not.  It may be beyond our comprehension at this time, but it is there.

Evil does not exist in a vacuum; with evil there is always good, if one looks for it in the right places.

Most people are readily equipped to recognize evil when they see it directly.  What they are not equipped for and must learn from environment is how to recognize evil disguised as righteousness.  The most heinous acts in history are almost always presented as a moral obligation — a path towards some “greater good.”  Inherent conscience, though, IS the greater good, and any ideology that steps away from the boundaries of conscience will inevitably lead to disaster.

The concept of globalism is one of these ideologies that crosses the line of conscience and pontificates to us about a “superior method” of living.  It relies on taboo, rather than moral compass, and there is a big difference between the two.

When we pursue a “greater good” as individuals or as a society, the means are just as vital as the ends.  The ends NEVER justify the means.  Never.  For if we abandon our core principles and commit atrocities in the name of “peace,” safety or survival, then we have forsaken the very things which make us worthy of peace and safety and survival.  A monster that devours in the name of peace is still a monster.

Globalism tells us that the collective is more important than the individual, that the individual owes society a debt and that fealty to society in every respect is the payment for that debt.  But inherent archetypes and conscience tell us differently.  They tell us that society is only ever as healthy as the individuals within it, that society is only as free and vibrant as the participants.  As the individual is demeaned and enslaved, the collective crumbles into mediocrity.

Globalism also tells us that humanity’s greatest potential cannot be reached without collectivism and centralization.  The assertion is that the more single-minded a society is in its pursuits the more likely it is to effectively achieve its goals.  To this end, globalism seeks to erase all sovereignty. For now its proponents claim they only wish to remove nations and borders from the social equation, but such collectivism never stops there.  Eventually, they will tell us that individualism represents another nefarious “border” that prevents the group from becoming fully realized.

At the heart of collectivism is the idea that human beings are “blank slates;” that we are born empty and are completely dependent on our environment in order to learn what is right and wrong and how to be good people or good citizens.  The environment becomes the arbiter of decency, rather than conscience, and whoever controls the environment, by extension, becomes god.

If the masses are convinced of this narrative then moral relativity is only a short step away. It is the abandonment of inborn conscience that ultimately results in evil. In my view, this is exactly why the so called “elites” are pressing for globalism in the first place. Their end game is not just centralization of all power into a one world edifice, but the suppression and eradication of conscience, and thus, all that is good.

To see where this leads we must look at the behaviors of the elites themselves, which brings us to “Pizzagate.”

The exposure by Wikileaks during the election cycle of what appear to be coded emails sent between John Podesta and friends has created a burning undercurrent in the alternative media. The emails consistently use odd and out of context “pizza” references, and independent investigations have discovered a wide array connections between political elites like Hillary Clinton and John Podesta to James Alefantis, the owner of a pizza parlor in Washington D.C. called Comet Ping Pong. Alefantis, for reasons that make little sense to me, is listed as number 49 on GQ’s Most Powerful People In Washington list.

The assertion according to circumstantial evidence including the disturbing child and cannibalism artwork collections of the Podestas has been that Comet Ping Pong is somehow at the center of a child pedophilia network serving the politically connected. Both Comet Ping Pong and a pizza establishment two doors down called Besta Pizza use symbols in their logos and menus that are listed on the FBI’s unclassified documentation on pedophilia symbolism, which does not help matters.

Some of the best documentation of the Pizzagate scandal that I have seen so far has been done by David Seaman, a former mainstream journalist gone rogue. Here is his YouTube page.

I do recommend everyone at least look at the evidence he and others present. I went into the issue rather skeptical, but was surprised by the sheer amount of weirdness and evidence regarding Comet Pizza.  There is a problem with Pizzagate that is difficult to overcome, however; namely the fact that to my knowledge no victims have come forward.  This is not to say there has been no crime, but anyone hoping to convince the general public of wrong-doing in this kind of scenario is going to have a very hard time without a victim to reference.

The problem is doubly difficult now that an armed man was arrested on the premises of Comet Ping Pong while "researching" the claims of child trafficking.  Undoubtedly, the mainstream media will declare the very investigation “dangerous conspiracy theory.”  Whether this will persuade the public to ignore it, or compel them to look into it, remains to be seen.

I fully realize the amount of confusion surrounding Pizzagate and the assertions by some that it is a "pysop" designed to undermine the alternative media.  This is a foolish notion, in my view.  The mainstream media is dying, this is unavoidable.  The alternative media is a network of sources based on the power of choice and cemented in the concept of investigative research.  The reader participates in the alternative media by learning all available information and positions and deciding for himself what is the most valid conclusion, if there is any conclusion to be had.  The mainstream media simply tells its readers what to think and feel based on cherry picked data.

The elites will never be able to deconstruct that kind of movement with something like a faked "pizzagate"; rather, they would be more inclined to try to co-opt and direct the alternative media as they do most institutions.  And, if elitists are using Pizzagate as fodder to trick the alternative media into looking ridiculous, then why allow elitist run social media outlets like Facebook and Reddit to shut down discussion on the issue?

The reason I am more convinced than skeptical at this stage is because this has happened before; and in past scandals of pedophilia in Washington and other political hotbeds, some victims DID come forward.

I would first reference the events of the Franklin Scandal between 1988 and 1991. The Discovery Channel even produced a documentary on it complete with interviews of alleged child victims peddled to Washington elites for the purpose of favors and blackmail.  Meant to air in 1994, the documentary was quashed before it was ever shown to the public. The only reason it can now be found is because an original copy was released without permission by parties unknown.

I would also reference the highly evidenced Westminster Pedophile Ring in the U.K., in which the U.K. government lost or destroyed at least 114 related files related to the investigation.

Finally, it is disconcerting to me that the criminal enterprises of former Bear Sterns financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and his "Lolita Express" are mainstream knowledge, yet the public remains largely oblivious.  Bill Clinton is shown on flight logs to have flown on Epstein's private jet at least a 26 times; the same jet that he used to procure child victims as young as 12 to entertain celebrities and billionaires on his 72 acre island called "Little Saint James".  The fact that Donald Trump was also close friends with Epstein should raise some eyebrows - funny how the mainstream media attacked Trump on every cosmetic issue under the sun but for some reason backed away from pursuing the Epstein angle.

Where is the vast federal investigation into the people who frequented Epstein's wretched parties?  There is none, and Epstein, though convicted of molesting a 14 year old girl and selling her into prostitution, was only slapped on the wrist with a 13 month sentence.

Accusations of pedophilia seem to follow the globalists and elitist politicians wherever they go. This does not surprise me. They often exhibit characteristics of narcissism and psychopathy, but their ideology of moral relativity is what would lead to such horrible crimes.

Evil often stems from people who are empty. When one abandons conscience, one also in many respects abandons empathy and love.  Without these elements of our psyche there is no happiness. Without them, there is nothing left but desire and gluttony.

Narcissists in particular are prone to use other people as forms of entertainment and fulfillment without concern for their humanity.  They can be vicious in nature, and when taken to the level of psychopathy, they are prone to target and abuse the most helpless of victims in order to generate a feeling of personal power.

Add in sexual addiction and aggression and narcissists become predatory in the extreme. Nothing ever truly satisfies them. When they grow tired of the normal, they quickly turn to the abnormal and eventually the criminal.  I would say that pedophilia is a natural progression of the elitist mindset; for children are the easiest and most innocent victim source, not to mention the most aberrant and forbidden, and thus the most desirable for a psychopathic deviant embracing evil impulses.

Beyond this is the even more disturbing prospect of cultism. It is not that the globalists are simply evil as individuals; if that were the case then they would present far less of a threat. The greater terror is that they are also organized. When one confronts the problem of evil head on, one quickly realizes that evil is within us all. There will always be an internal battle in every individual. Organized evil, though, is in fact the ultimate danger, and it is organized evil that must be eradicated.

For organized evil to be defeated, there must be organized good. I believe the liberty movement in particular is that good; existing in early stages, not yet complete, but good none the less.  Our championing of the non-aggression principle and individual liberty is conducive to respect for privacy, property and life.  Conscience is a core tenet of the liberty ideal, and the exact counter to organized elitism based on moral relativity.

Recognize and take solace that though we live in dark times, and evil men roam free, we are also here. We are the proper response to evil, and we have been placed here at this time for a reason. Call it fate, call it destiny, call it coincidence, call it god, call it whatever you want, but the answer to evil is us.

"Out of the temporary evil we are now compelled to commit will emerge the good of an unshakable rule, which will restore the regular course of the machinery of the national life, brought to naught by liberalism. The result justifies the means. Let us, however, in our plans, direct our attention not so much to what is good and moral as to what is necessary and useful."

"It is the abandonment of inborn conscience that ultimately results in evil."

In the attempt to negate collectivism, its first principle is embraced. That is that the good is innate. Instead of the good owing its being to reason, desire, choice, and actions, it is purported to come from an ideal Form prior to action.

Again and as always, the pursuit of happiness and all that the principle begets comes from Aristotle and communism, even from "anti-collectivists," comes from Plato.

Pretty deep stuff.  And it is good that we think about such things and discuss them as rational men & women.

I have an issue with this point, however...

"The ends NEVER justify the means.  Never.  For if we abandon our core principles and commit atrocities in the name of “peace,” safety or survival, then we have forsaken the very things which make us worthy of peace and safety and survival.  A monster that devours in the name of peace is still a monster."

So... what is the "peaceful" solution when the world faces an entity such as talmudic communism which has at its hellish core an "ethos" of utter barbarity, cruelty and murder to hold itself together?  Are we to sit back and hope that the "monster" softens and eventually comes to a change of heart to spare the next generation of innocents?  Or is violent annihilation of the system and its adherents the righteous (and natural) thing to do?  In my opinion, when there is an obvious "good" (freedom & liberty) versus an obvious "evil" (tyranny and subjugation), the ends DO justify the means.  THIS is the great test of the souls of mankind.  In nature, the only way to defeat an adversay is with equal or greater force.  When an aggressor is totally amoral and uses tactics abhorent to its adversary, the only chance the latter has of victory is to play by those same rules, else he is doomed to extinction.  This is not choice, but necessity.  It is Nature's and thus, God's Law.

The aggressor sets the rules. Agreed. They who would eradicate us, must themselve be eradicated. They say they only do so for fear of being eradicated. I say, it is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Fuck off, be left alone. Persist in your program, be wiped from the face of the Earth.

Don't fuck with me, I won't fuck with you. Fuck with me, I'll fucking END YOU. That's my deal; take it or leave it.

The problem with the secular evil hypothesis is that it ignores the greater evil which is not secular but every bit as real.  Behind the scenes is a spiritual war.  God and His angels vs Satan and his fallen angels and their demons.  God, of course, knows the end from the beginning and cannot lose.  He's already won and the book of revelation tells us of the victory.  

The elite are powered by God's adversary.  They come from the highest positions of the secret and not so secret societies.  Freemasonry, The Order (Skull and Bones), Illuminati, CFR, Trilateral Commission, Knights of Columbus, Knights of Malta, etc. etc. all worship Lucifer and hate God.   You're right, they are organized!  But their leader is supernatural, a liar from the start, and the reigning prince of the Earth until Jesus returns.  As such, their is little a league of 'so called' good people (Jesus tells us there are none, anyhow) could realistically expect to do against such a force.   

Hidden, in plain sight, at a higher level is the Beast of Revelation which all the leaders of the reformation knew could only be the Catholic Church.  A careful examination will show that the idea of a one world government with no borders originated here.  As they see it, the Pope is to occupy the top spot with authority over both religious and governmental matters, just like in the middle ages, only global!   Naturally, the rooting out of all "heretics" will be a top priority.  Just like in the middle ages, only global. There is nothing new under the sun.

It's going to get worse before it gets better.  But don't forget, God has already won.  You might want to consider joining His team while that's still an option for you as there are only two teams and if you haven't joined His then you're playing with the losers.

"Evil often stems from people who are empty. When one abandons conscience, one also in many respects abandons empathy and love."

When it comes to top political posts, Deep State would only choose candidates who are empty and corruptible for ease of control (blackmail). Failing that, threat would likely be another option. If you have something dear to lose, you can be controlled. Essentially, no one is safe. I suspect the evils we are witnessing are all by design bcos of the apparently well-organized network/layers of protection that they seem to be getting.

Looking at the evidence of Pizzagate (and after verifying some of them), there appears to be too many coincidences that can't be ignored. And there are NO coincidences, especially one this intricate.

REVELATION 13

1 And I (John) stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast (One World System) rise up out of the sea (people of the earth), having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

2 And the beast (One World Sys) which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon (Satan) gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; (Brexit, Trump, EU BuBye, etc )and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.  ( Oh Look at that)

4 And they ( Unlearnered and the straight up wicked)  worshiped the dragon (satan) which gave power unto the beast: and they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?.....

 

At this point the 6th trump sounds and Satan shows up on earth posing as Christ er Instead of Christ (A good looking dude in a white robe, pierced hands and a beard) putting a chicken in every pot and paying your bills.  when they say Christ in in the Church  DONT GO.  When thweysay Christ is in the wilderness DONT GO.

 

Only by showing up before the REAL CHRIST, can the people be fooled into loving and working for the false christ.

 

When your body is changed into a spiritual body... at the very moment he arrives will you know The King has arrived.

 

And soon ALL tha affends will be rendered away from those whom he loves and that love him

This is the truth.

Yes, it will get worse.

Only the Creator of creators is the true God.

Only a true Creator, not begotten, does NOT have a name.

And Sophia is the Holy Spirit, his feminine manifestation.

And Jesus Christ is God's son, not Yahweh's. This is the real reason he was hated by the Pharisees.

Jesus was a threat to Yahweh, because he knew the truth and shared it.

This truth has been buried for a long time. Many have been killed for saying it.

And this truth is being spread again, here, right now, again.

No fear.

The Protestants in their misguided zeal made the pope the anti-Christ, employing prophecies fulfilled in or before AD 70. The Jesuits, to deflect this attack, created the notion that these prophecies were not being fulfilled in the 16th century, but were waaay in the future. The pope of Rome may be Dr. Superevil, but he isn't prophesied in the Bible. http://www.preteristarchive.com/

Satan is a projection of the combined action of the unregenerate mammalian psychobiology and automatized intellect in humans.

Predictions from biblical verse are in a sense "insightful", but they reflect predominantly the repeated behaviours of the unregenerate human condition, some representative description of which can be expected to be repeated again and again as human history continues.  This makes them more allegories than firm predictions.

Akzed's picture

St. Augustine described evil as a corruption of a good thing, having no independent existence. I'll leave that with you.

 

Interesting that the author says religion and "god" are irrelevent to his discussion of evil, then qualifies science and psychology as relevent. Whenever someone marginalizes God, he is usually, oddly enough, putting his own judgment front and center.

Lonesome Crow's picture

"In all arts and sciences the means and the end should be equally within our control."

We agree. However, I would clarify that when the two clash we say the ends do not justify the means but that when the two are in harmony, and rightly so, we say the means justify the ends.

For, "both the reasoning must be true and the desire right if the choice is to be good."

"Allah" means "God" in arabic. Nothing more, nothing less. If you go for a church service in Syria, with the oldest Christian traditions, you will hear of nothing but "Allah". Do go, now that the satanists are being brought to heel. 

CNONC's picture

Allah is commonly used as "God" in Arabic, but it does not actually mean The God as often stated.  Alilah would be the more accurate usage of the definite article and the word god "ilah."  Muslims have, at various times, including in Indonesia today, objected to the use of "Allah" by Christians.  The Syriac word, used in many Syrian churches is Alelah.

Allah is the name of of a pre-Mohammedan god, the chief god of a polytheistic pantheon of the tribe which controlled Mecca.  Mohammed's father was named Abd Ullah, or "slave of Allah."  The black stone in the Kabba is the idol of Allah.  Allah had two daughters, represented by the crescent moon and morning star, still the symbols of Islam.  Mohammed once told the residents of Mecca that could still pray to these daughters for intercession.  Abu Bakr and many of his other followers rebelled at this statement, as it contradicted the strict monotheism Mohammed had previously preached.  Mohammed claimed to havebeen deceived in his sleep by Satan, unfortunately, he did not know what verses of the Koran were from Satan, thus the "Satanic Verses"

So yes, Allah in common usage means "God," but it is not a matter of "nothing more, nothing less."

I would agree, but this reminds me of the Frankfurt meme that "those who don't actively combat racism are complicit in it" which is bullshit to me. Not conflating racism and evil (that's a whole diff conversation) but that kind of thinking is a little too black-and-white to me. I mean, i have plenty of friends that I had to forcibly thrust into the light (you know what i mean) and i don't think they were previously evil, just blind or misguided. Just my two cents :)

That is why St. Augustine came up with Just War Doctrine.... don't overthink it Bach... the bible doesn't forbade war - God uses it in many instances in attempts to wipe out evil such as in the area that still plagues Israel today b/c Joshua didn't listen to God's command to wipe out every tribe.... he ultimately failed by not killing off every tribe in the area and the people that plague Israel is the West Bank, Golan Heights, and Juraselem are the same stock of people that Joshua failed to eliminate. 

 Obviously the tenants of Just War doctrine are brilliant b/c it attempts to avoid it with all effort, yet if evil is being perpetrated there are instances such as WWII where it is justified obviously.

Saint Augustine is usually indentified as the first individual to offer a theory on war and justice. The Saint referred to the Bible and regarded some wars as necessary to amend an evil. Saint Thomas Aquinas revised Augustine's version, creating three criteria for a just war: the war needed to be waged by a legitimate authority, have a just cause, and have the right intentions. The moral justifcations for a war are expressed in jus ad bellum; whereas, the moral conduct of the war is expressed in jus in bello. The Just-War Theory is a set of rules for military combat.

Hmm...

J S Bach: When an aggressor is totally amoral and uses tactics abhorent to its adversary, the only chance the latter has of victory is to play by those same rules, else he is doomed to extinction.  This is not choice, but necessity.  It is Nature's and thus, God's Law.

AlexCharting: Those who do not fight evil are indirectly complicit.

We're getting deep into philosophy and semantics here, but I'll toss in my 2¢.

To oppose does not necessarily mean to "fight" in the traditional sense.  I absolutely and categorically oppose the evil we are all currently witness to in the elites of world governments and banking systems.  I strongly approve of defining this as evil; there is no better word for it.  This is indeed a moral battle.

I, however, agree with Brandon Smith about the need to avoid duplicating the methods of those we oppose.  I like the saying (loosely paraphrased): Pay close attention to the evils of your enemy, lest that be what you become upon your victory.  This pattern has been played out so many times in the past century it's obscene.

In my examination of history, I don't ever see evil being defeated head-on.  Evil cannot be "fought" to an end.  Evil is starved.  It is not by overwhelming force that evil is eliminated, but by the removal of the sustenance on which it feeds.  I have written many times about the Soviet Union, the end of which to me is a beautiful example of a huge loss for evil.  There was no "violent battle" that ended Communism in the Soviet Union and the eastern block.  There were some skirmishes, but in the end, it was not violence which ended the evil.  The end came when the population woke up enough to reject the story.  All these evil systems survive on people's beliefs.  That is their food.  That is how they exist.  Enough people believe this system is at least good enough that the system survives and the evil continues to grow.

This is why the "fake news" story is incredibly good news!  We're winning.  We are already winning.  We can't let our guard down, because evil is ever-vigilant, but the trend right now is good.  Every day now, more and more people are seeing the evil for what it is.  As people see this, they withdraw their support, and their support is the critical factor.  Without the active support of the population, the system will fall. This all fits together.

Ironically, what we are most concerned about on this site - economic stagnation and contraction - can also be viewed as a positive when viewed morally.  The existing economic order is thoroughly corrupt.  We all know this.  Goldman Sachs represents the poster-child for that corruption, but it is corrupt in a much more diffuse and difficult to access way, involving many corporations and many many people operating at all scales of activity.  This is what is failing!   We are watching people moving away from dealing with these corrupt institutions.  That looks like (you guessed it) economic stagnation and contraction.  The corrupt system is starving to death.

Our job now is tremendously subtle, and requires incredible patience and intelligence.  We need to find the way to sustain and nurture a new - relatively pure - alternative to the old guard.  Move our energy to the good.

This is happening.  It's why TPTB are having to attack cash.  They are desperate to stop people from returning to direct face-to-face interactions.  In interactions like this, good is born.  Organized evil loves large, impersonal constructs.  The move toward decentralized interactions which physical cash or barter promotes is correctly seen by evil as its death sentence.

Whether positive trends will continue is forever in doubt, because evil has never in history been eradicated, and I don't see it happening in the future.  But again, more and more people are seeing the corruption of the global economic / political / environmental mainstream and are seeking alternatives.

If we provide a violent alternative, then we will end up with a violent context replacing the prior violent context.  Different people in charge, but the same basic evil underneath.  This is Orwell's Animal Farm.  This is what using their own tools against them ends up with every time.  History is quite clear on this.

Starve the beast.  it's our best tool.  Find healthy ways to meet your needs, and starve the beast.

Again, my 2¢.

Everybody knows the Christian world view, complete with angels and demons, is reality.  It's just hard to admit.

No collectivist believes good is innate.  They all argue that good is determined by the collective.

The ideal Man or the ideal State, both come from the same Academy.

No they don't.  The ideal man is a man that simply follows his conscience.  The ideal State is a myth.

Here's that sentiment (moral relativism) - straight from the "horse's" mouth:

When I first saw this, I had to laugh out loud ... because if "Society determines what's good and evil" by Jewish standards, then Hitler was perfectly righteous in what he (supposedly) did, since that's what society determined was "good" .... so yamulke-boy shouldn't have anything to complain about ...

Mo Ti, the Chinese philosopher, wrote some 3000 years ago, "Selfishness is the root of all evil". It was also common for any writer to directly plagiarize anyone's material without offense or penance, nevertheless his is the oldest known written version of that particular philosophy. I still have yet to find a single person to refute it as not true by reasoning.

Hey DUMMY (and i call you that because you call the NWO the "old" world order):

 

The Protocols were stitched together over a hundred years ago by idiots seeking confirmation bias. If you want to know the deep tribe's true intentions and motivations, just look at their ACTIONS, not some 100+ year old BS lazily thrown together by some idiots like yourself.

You are the dummy! If you look closely, the actions match perfectly.

I have a friend who went through Seminary School.  For several years he refused to read the "Protocols" because they are supposedly "anti-semitic" fake propaganda!  After enough badgering, I told him to read them without thinking about the "who" and ask himself, "Are these things happening?"  A few days later he came back with "Holy. Shit."   I then suggested he go to https://thezog.wordpress.com/ and spend some time poking around. 

It's pretty obvious once you've done that that the Protocols are right on the money.

A good article, but it fails to deliver on these key aspects of the matter:

Everyone knows from the Godfather and its genre that there is a connection between loyalty, criminality and power: Once you witness someone engaging in a criminal act, you have leverage over them and that ensures their loyalty. But what follows from that - which healthy sane minds have trouble contemplating - is that the greater the criminality the greater the leverage, and that because murderous paedophilia places a person utterly beyond any prospect of redemption in decent society, there in NO GREATER LOYALTY than those desperate to avoid being outed.  These must be the three corners of the triangle - Power:Loyalty:Depravity through which the evil eys views the world.

I always beleived in an Illuminati of sorts, however they care to self identify. Until Pizzagate, I never understood that murderous paedophilia, luciferian in style to accentuate their own depravity, is THE KEY TO RULING THE EARTH

And another thing. If pizzagate is 'fake news' then it it inconceivably elaborate - they'd have had to fake Epstein 2008, Silsby 2010, Breitbart 2011, the 2013 portugese release of podestaesque mccann suspects, as well as the current run of wikileaks and Alefantis' instagram account - which had an avatar photo of the 13 yr old lover of a roman emperor.

Is that much fake news a possibility? Or has this smoke been blowing for years and we've all been too distracted to stop and look for fire?
