Conspiracy Or Chaos?

Authored by Jim Quinn via The Burning Platform blog,

“The main thing that I learned about conspiracy theory is that conspiracy theorists believe in a conspiracy because that is more comforting. The truth of the world is that it is actually chaotic. The truth is that it is not The Iluminati, or The Jewish Banking Conspiracy, or the Gray Alien Theory. The truth is far more frightening – Nobody is in control. The world is rudderless.” – Alan Moore

Alan Moore, the renowned graphic novel writer, and author of the dystopian classic V for Vendetta, politically identifies as an anarchist. His view that all political states are an outgrowth of anarchy, with the biggest gang taking control and dictating how things will be run, is manifested in V for Vendetta. As an anarchist, you can understand why he is doubtful of conspiracy theories and an all-powerful entity controlling the world. He believes in a chaotic world competing gangs position themselves to gain power and control.

“We live in a badly developed anarchist situation in which the biggest gang has taken over and have declared that it is not an anarchist situation – that it is a capitalist or a communist situation. But I tend to think that anarchy is the most natural form of politics for a human being to actually practice.”- Alan Moore

The Guy Fawkes mask from V for Vendetta has been adopted by anarchist groups around the world, including: Anonymous, WikiLeaks, and the Occupy protestors. Moore’s positive view of the Occupy movement was based on his belief ordinary people had the right to reclaim what had been taken from them by criminal bankers. The initial impetus for the Occupy protests was the destruction of Main Street USA by Wall Street sociopaths, who not only escaped prosecution for their crimes, but were bailed out by the taxpayers they had pillaged and further enriched as captured politicians enabled them to get even bigger.

Millions were evicted from their homes and lost their jobs. Middle class families have seen their real income continue to stagnate, while bankers, corporate executives, and politicians have reaped billions in bonuses, stock gains, and payoffs, provided by central bankers in their back pocket.

“I can’t think of any reason why as a population we should be expected to stand by and see a gross reduction in the living standards of ourselves and our kids, possibly for generations, when the people who have got us into this have been rewarded for it – they’ve certainly not been punished in any way because they’re too big to fail. I think that the Occupy movement is, in one sense, the public saying that they should be the ones to decide who’s too big to fail. As an anarchist, I believe that power should be given to the people whose lives this is actually affecting.” – Alan Moore

For those of us who visited Zuccotti Park during the early stages of the Occupy Movement, you understood this was a true populist protest with Ron Paul libertarians alongside liberal college students, old time hippies, middle aged men and women put out of work by the massive Wall Street fraud, and a myriad of citizens supporting varied causes and exercising their First Amendment rights. They were primarily focused on the true enemy – sociopathic Wall Street bankers and corrupt captured politicians. Sadly, the movement was co-opted in short order by Soros and his minions, just as the Tea Party had been co-opted by neo-cons earlier. Supposedly liberal mayors in NYC and across the country eventually unleashed their police state thugs on the protestors and wiped it out. Was this an example of chaos or conspiracy?

There isn’t an easy answer to this question. I have to lean towards Alan Moore’s view of the world. There are certainly conspiratorial schemes plotted by powerful men in smoke filled rooms, but there are other gangs of men conspiring to push their competing agendas. Conspiracy theorists who think there is one massive conspiracy controlling every aspect of the world have an extremely tough case to make. People who believe everything is part of a grand conspiracy are seeking an easy solution to our problems, rather than dealing with the complexity and chaos which is the true nature of our world. V’s speech to London after blowing up the Old Bailey explains who is really to blame for allowing Deep State actors to gain control of our government, creating an Orwellian surveillance state.

Good evening, London. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of the everyday routine, the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration – whereby those important events of the past, usually associated with someone’s death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, are celebrated with a nice holiday – I thought we could mark this November the fifth, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat.

There are, of course, those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now orders are being shouted into telephones and men with guns will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn’t there?

Cruelty and injustice…intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance, coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who’s to blame? Well certainly there are those who are more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable. But again, truth be told…if you’re looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn’t be? War. Terror. Disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you and in your panic, you turned to the now High Chancellor Adam Sutler. He promised you order. He promised you peace. And all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.

Last night, I sought to end that silence. Last night, I destroyed the Old Bailey to remind this country of what it has forgotten. More than four hundred years ago, a great citizen wished to embed the fifth of November forever in our memory. His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice and freedom are more than words – they are perspectives. So if you’ve seen nothing, if the crimes of this government remain unknown to you, then I would suggest that you allow the fifth of November to pass unmarked. But if you see what I see, if you feel as I feel, and if you would seek as I seek…then I ask you to stand beside me, one year from tonight, outside the gates of Parliament. And together, we shall give them a fifth of November that shall never, ever, be forgot!

We have no one to blame but ourselves for our current state of affairs. Blaming it on some shadowy group makes us feel somehow comforted. If an all-powerful entity is controlling the world, then we can easily convince ourselves anything we do to try and change the course of history would be fruitless. Therefore, we just bitch on internet forums. The truth is fear rules the actions of the majority.

Those who constitute the Deep State are not conspiring directly by working together to rule the world and control the people. What they are doing is taking advantage of a dumbed down fearful populace by using the chaos, incompetence of institutions, and confusion spread by the propaganda press to institute their agendas. The Deep State consists of shadowy billionaires, mega-corporations, the military industrial complex, surveillance state agencies, crooked bought off politicians and their mass media mouthpieces.

Those with the financial means and access to the power of the media have embraced the Edward Bernays worldview that an invisible government of the rich and powerful is necessary to manipulate the opinions of the masses through propaganda in order for society to function smoothly. Is this truly a conspiracy or just competing gangs of rich and connected men utilizing their wealth to mold the minds of the masses in a way that continues to benefit and enrich them?

These Deep State players don’t meet every other Saturday to conspire and plot ways to pillage and enslave the masses. But they do know each other and silently agree to never rock the boat, whether they are Democrats, Republicans, liberals, conservatives, socialists, corporate executives, academics, or journalists. Money, control and power are at stake.

Those currently pulling the wires behind the scenes are conspiratorial in nature. It has become crystal clear since the election of Trump the farce of competing political parties is just a smoke screen used by the Deep State players to maintain their control. Trump’s shocking upset and seeming disregard for bowing down to the status quo has forced politicians of all persuasions to reveal their true masters. Both parties favor bloated government control of healthcare, with a medical industrial complex controlling the show, writing the rules, reaping riches, and buying off politicians. “Free” healthcare buys votes.

The flogging of the false Russian narrative by the corporate media has been used by neo-cons and ultra-libs to force Trump into the military interventionist camp – guaranteeing increased wealth for the military industrial complex. Neither party has any interest in cutting spending. The debt ceiling will be raised. The $4 trillion in annual spending will ratchet ever higher. Both sides are perfectly fine with $1 trillion deficits and $200 trillion of unfunded liabilities, as long as their gravy train keeps being fueled by the Deep State. They will spend your money until it all collapses under the mountains of debt.

Donald Jeffries explains why it is vital to the vested interests they scorn and ridicule anyone who uses factual data to prove conspiratorial intent by the government or its cancerous corporate outgrowths.

“I can remember when believing in conspiracies wasn’t cool. Now, in the second decade of the twenty-first century, more people are starting to sense that things may not be as they appear to be. The truth in Lord Acton’s classic axiom that “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely” becomes more self-evident every day. Politicians from the only two parties we have to choose from break promises, are unresponsive to the will of the people, and opt for war, austerity measures, and state control over and over again. Gary Allen, author of the book None Dare Call It Conspiracy, defined things perfectly when he wrote, “It must be remembered that the first job of any conspiracy, whether it be in politics, crime or within a business office, is to convince everyone else that no conspiracy exists.” – Donald Jeffries – Hidden History: An Exposé of Modern Crimes, Conspiracies, and Cover-Ups in American Politics

It ultimately comes down to power and control over the key mechanisms of finance, taxation, legislation and the media. There isn’t one specific group of conspirators working together to rule the world. Is George Soros attempting to influence and control what happens in the U.S. and Europe to benefit his interests? Yes. Are the Koch brothers attempting to do the same with a different end goal? Yes. Are Pelosi and Schumer conspiring to push their left wing agenda? Yes. Are McConnell and Ryan conspiring to implement their establishment vision? Yes.

They have competing agendas, but they want the status quo to remain intact. No one within the establishment wants to change anything of substance. The current system benefits their personal interests, while destroying the lives of hard working American citizens. The country is currently run by same party with slightly different rhetoric and policies put forth by the Republican side and Democrat side. Promises are made to voters and then reneged on in short order. Therefore, no significant change ever occurs. Meanwhile, the anger and frustration build among the deplorables.

What Trump has realized quickly is how powerful the vested interests are and how ruthless they will act to retain their power. During the campaign Trump ran on a non-interventionist platform, looking to repair our relationship with Russia, scorning NATO, and lessening our involvement in the Middle East. He know rattles his saber on a daily basis, threatening war with North Korea, Venezuela, Iran, Syria and anyone else who doesn’t toe the American Empire line.

He provokes Russia and China on a regular basis. He has sent more troops to Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria, while expanding spending on the military. Neo-cons and neo-libs don’t think Trump is being aggressive enough in policing the world. They won’t be happy until middle class boys across the land are sacrificed as cannon fodder for our welfare warfare surveillance state.

Trump bloviated about the stock market being in a bubble during the campaign when it was trading at 18,000. He now pronounces the record highs of 22,000 as proof of his brilliant economic leadership. Meanwhile, the economy has grown at less than 2% during his first six months, retailers are going bankrupt and closing stores at a record pace, consumer spending and real wages are barely growing, and consumer debt has reached all-time highs. Best time to buy, according to the Prez.

A critical thinking individual might wonder how a market could be in a bubble at 18,000 but not be in a bubble at 22,000 ten months later. During the campaign Trump accused Obama and his BLS minions of manipulating the data to make horrible jobs numbers appear strong. Now he bellows about the strong jobs market as if we’re now supposed to believe the hysterically absurd 4.3% reported rate when 101 million out of 255 million working age Americans aren’t working. And a vast majority of the jobs are either part-time and/or low paying service jobs with shitty pay and benefits.

Trump is playing the status quo Deep State game in an attempt to fend off a coup currently in progress by lying to the masses. Jobs are plentiful, consumers are confident, the economy is booming, the stock market is always right. Ignore those vacant crumbling malls, your declining disposable income as health care cost increases outpace your salary increases by a factor of five, and your ever increasing credit card balance.

Trump wouldn’t be using the tried and true method of distracting from domestic failure by starting a foreign conflict because he understands how easily manipulated the ignorant American masses can be moved by fear? Rather than draining the swamp, Trump has been forced to swim with the gators. And his own people hired a Deep State alligator hunter named Mueller who will stop at nothing to mount Trump as a trophy or force him to depart the DC swamp for the friendly environs of Manhattan Island.

Trump belittled the troll-like Yellen during the campaign, declaring her low interest policy was geared to help Obama/Clinton. He talked tough about replacing Yellen and increasing rates. He evidently got the talk from the banker cabal and he suddenly loves low interest rates and believes Yellen is doing a bang up job. He has filled his cabinet with vampire squid and other Wall Street scum. He is as beholden to the Fed and their Wall Street puppeteers as his predecessors. Wall Street remains in control, while Main Street will continue to get screwed. It’s not a conspiracy. It’s about powerful special interests capturing the levers of government.

Our government doesn’t in any way resemble its original concept of a republic. It doesn’t even resemble a democracy at this point. Since FDR and specifically since LBJ, we’ve become a welfare/warfare state. Since Bush II we’ve devolved into a corporate fascist surveillance socialist state. Despite rhetoric about free market capitalism, both parties have embraced socialism. The super-rich, bankers, corporate executives, liberals and conservatives came to the realization socialism disguised as capitalism fills their coffers at a much higher rate than true free market capitalism.

They have bought off the poor with unfunded welfare benefits, the old and poor with unfunded “free” healthcare, government union workers with unfunded pension benefits and all with unfunded social security payments. Trillion dollar annual deficits and $200 trillion in unfunded welfare promises, enabled by Federal Reserve easy money policies, does wonders for the bank accounts of Deep State players and their acolytes. Spending money you don’t have is the ultimate confidence game, but the payback will be a bitch.

“Why are the super-rich for socialism? Don’t they have the most to lose? I take a look at my bank account and compare it with Nelson Rockefeller’s and it seems funny that I’m against socialism and he’s out promoting it.” Or is it funny? In reality, there is a vast difference between what the promoters define as socialism and what it is in actual practice. The idea that socialism is a share-the-wealth program is strictly a confidence game to get the people to surrender their freedom to an all-powerful collectivist government. While the Insiders tell us we are building a paradise on earth, we are actually constructing a jail for ourselves.” – Gary Allen, None Dare Call It Conspiracy

The Deep State thrives on chaos, confusion, and complexity. Our financial system, healthcare system, entitlement systems, military, and government agencies are too big and complex to fix. Those pulling the strings don’t want the public to understand how anything operates. Supposed “experts” are put forth on the corporate propaganda networks to further confuse the masses. The purpose of government run public education is to matriculate non-thinking socially engineered consumers into the world.

The vast majority of iGadget distracted, math challenged, functionally illiterate morons will believe anything the propaganda media peddles because they are incapable of critical thinking. They have an infinite capacity for rationalizing how spending money they don’t have on things they don’t need is actually making their lives better. This same mindset keeps them from questioning how their government can run up a $20 trillion national debt (with $15 trillion added since 2000), with no adverse consequences. These debts are the ultimate threat to our survival as a nation.

Based on everything that has happened in the last twelve months, to believe this is part of some well-planned conspiracy is a reach of epic proportions. The Deep State/status quo were sure their hand-picked candidate Hillary Clinton was a shoe in. Since November the country has been roiled in election result challenges, chaotic antifa violence, fake news stories, silent coups, thousands of tweets, congressional investigations, assassination attempts on congressmen, special prosecutors, increasing odds of civil and foreign wars, and deteriorating economic conditions for the majority. Just when you thought the chaos couldn’t get more pronounced, we experienced a week of sheer turmoil and tumult. Even the stock market stopped rising for a day or two.

I’ve been observing the goings on this week with a jaundiced eye. As the rhetoric between President Cheeto and Kim Jung Nutjob has ramped up to nuclear proportions I’ve been reminded of the rhetoric and fake news leading up to the invasion of Iraq. Suddenly, confidential reports are released saying the midget dictator has miniaturized a nuclear warhead to go on top of his ICBMs that now supposedly can kill everyone in the U.S. The exaggeration of this country’s nuclear capabilities is on par with Hussein’s WMD and killing of babies in Kuwaiti hospitals.

The neo-cons smell blood and more money for their beloved arms peddlers. The propagandists have two thirds of Americans fearful of this rotund midget with an IQ of 85. Trump then set in motion his backup plan – attack Venezuela, which poses absolutely zero risk to America or our interests. But it does have the largest oil reserves on earth.

Now this weekend’s escapades in Charlottesville have worked the propaganda media into a tizzy. It’s these types of stories that reveal all the corporate media to be peddling the same narrative. Fox News was peddling the same white hate narrative as CNN and MSNBC. Because protestors with proper permits included some white supremacists, nazi sympathizers, and KKK members, all participants were branded as racists. Their right to protest regarding the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue was guaranteed by the First Amendment.

It was the violent Soros funded antifa SJWs who were bussed in to create a violent confrontation, while government officials told police to stand down and let the clashes happen. The Deep State is desirous of a race war and their media mouthpieces are busy spreading misinformation and falsehoods to further rile up the masses. Their job is to portray all flyover country whites who elected Trump as rednecks, racists and white supremacists. And at least half the country believes this fake news.

“The militia experts accuse anti-government agitants of paranoia, yet they spin around and claim that militias speak in coded phrases, have underground bunkers, and are secretly conspiring to take over the world and enslave minorities. They say it`s lunacy that men at the pentagon can conspire, yet they`re certain that farmers out on the plain are plotting as we speak. They depict the United Nations as weak and ineffectual, yet they portray raggedy-ass backwoodsmen as the world`s biggest organized military threat.” – Jim Goad, The Redneck Manifesto: How Hillbillies, Hicks, and White Trash Became America’s Scapegoats

I don’t believe what is happening in this country and around the world is some vast conspiracy. But I do believe the Deep State thrives on chaos and fear. They used 9/11 to pass the Patriot Act, creating an Orwellian surveillance state. They used the Wall Street created 2008 global financial implosion to rig the financial systems in their favor, while issuing mind boggling levels of government debt and artificially suppressing interest rates to create the largest financial bubble in world history.

I do believe we are in the midst of a Fourth Turning where the mood of the masses has turned unequivocally dark. As we approach the ninth year of this Crisis period, the intensification and potential for enormous levels of domestic and foreign bloodshed ramps up by the day. With a decade or so remaining in this period of turmoil, chaos and war, the existing social order will be swept away and replaced by something new. But not necessarily better.

Whatever Deep State conspiracies are being plotted by various gangs seeking power during this Fourth Turning, they will all rot from within.

https://www.eyeonspain.com/userfiles/07-There-May-Be-Trouble-Ahead[1].jpg

Human nature never changes. Hubris and greed will lead to miscalculations and missteps which will result in another financial crash, civil chaos, and world war. Blood will be spilled in vast quantities if the wrong people make the wrong decisions. Chaos will rein for the next decade and the outcome is very much in doubt. Get prepared mentally and physically for the trials ahead.

“The risk of catastrophe will be very high. The nation could erupt into insurrection or civil violence, crack up geographically, or succumb to authoritarian rule. If there is a war, it is likely to be one of maximum risk and effort – in other words, a total war. Every Fourth Turning has registered an upward ratchet in the technology of destruction, and in mankind’s willingness to use it.” – Strauss & Howe – The Fourth Turning

Absolutely right: it's demons controlling them all.  They don't need to collude; the demons do that for them.  And "coincidence theory" is born!  :(

No jewish banking conspiracy? Wrong.

Its just (((coincidence))) that they are routinely over-represented in all esteemed companies like facebook and new york times, and insane influence in DC

Billy the Poet's picture

I assume the point is that the banking cartel operates in full view and is all nice and legal (if you don't look too closely). The author said we have no one to blame for such things but ourselves and I assume that he means that we should find the commitment to change that which is not only spoiled rotten but is also in plain sight.

Alan Moore lost me after the very first sentence when he states 'conspiracy theorists believe in conspiracies because its more comfortable.'

When in fact it shows mental retardation in an individual that believes in no conspiracies.

Billy the Poet's picture

But one does often find a kind of religious fanaticism among so called conspiracy theorists. The feeling that one has inside information that no one else knows makes the adherent feel important and intelligent.  This leads to embarrassing incidents like when Alex Jones conned his listeners into believing that Charlie Sheen had met with Obama and had convinced him to re-open the 9/11 investigation. The Truthers celebrated like it was the Second Coming until the real truth became obvious the next day.

runningman18's picture

You're talking about isolated incidences, not the general rule and behavior of people that research conspiracy.  You can't have a "religious fanaticism" over facts, which is what most of us are interested in.  Obviously you invested a lot in defending this article, but it is pure crap. The term "conspiracy theory" was coined by the CIA in 1967 in order to slander people who sought truth behind lies.  You and this article are only helping to perpetuate the propaganda.

Yes, I realize that you consider me to be a heretic.

I know that. That's why I said "so called conspiracy theorists." The point is not that powerful forces don't use untoward means to exert control, the point is that they do it in plain sight and more often than not they depend on choas (never let a crisis go to waste) rather than by the command of some omnipotent yet unknown power.

It seems strange to me that you rail against the idea that such incidents as the lies that led to war in Vietnam and Iraq are easy to see and well documented. What advantage is there in attributing such obvious and well documented false flags to unknown forces when we do who know the responsible parties are?

rather than by the command of some omnipotent yet unknown power.

Well, there is your problem laid bare. THEY believe in Lucifer, and you don't. They are perfectly fine with that, as is Lucifer.

Alan Moore is also a sphincter for distorting Christianity in his putrid novel, yet referring to the "Holy Koran" with reverence. I turned the insipid propaganda off fairly quickly, knowing that Guy Fawkes was a papist who wanted most of all to return England to the Vatican.

Iskiab's picture

Well I think there is a conspiracy too. The media's spin in each country resembles the best interests of those in power too closely for their not to be something going on. If it was purely chaos, you would have seen more dissent before the Iraq war for example, when it was no coincidence the US went in alone, almost every other country knew the WMDs were BS.

Think about events back then. Iraq got it's ass kicked in Kuwait and had been sanctioned ever since. Saddam knows he can't win, and restructures his army to have a million plain clothed soldiers/intelligence operatives to fight back as insurgents.
1. There's a ruckus about WMDs in Iraq
2. The UN asked for full access with inspectors, a request that was meant to be rejected
3. Iraq gave full access against expectations
4. UN inspectors find nothing
5. The US says we know they have them (mostly because the US sold them the chemical weapons), they must be hiding and moving them
6. France is the only country to say that maybe they aren't there and the US should reconsider
7. The US starts a 'freedom fries' campaign instead of French fries
8. Saddam warns if you invade you'll pay with lots of American lives, but it was written off as usual middle eastern hyperbole
9. Every other major country respectfully declines to join in but says nothing (learning from France), except some countries looking to gain favour
9. The US invades, and trounces the Iraqis. Shortly afterwards Bush is on an aircraft carrier with 'mission accomplished' on it
10. Years later, the US is still there. The Syrian war is an extension of the Iraq war, half of the territory involved in the conflict is in Iraq but it's still 'the Syrian war'

Where's the accountability? Where were the journalists with 'tough questions'? When after the aircraft carrier incident bush says he never said the war was over, or that Iraq was helping terrorism where was the outcry? Where are they right now questioning how the government is framing the war? Plus, a look at what happened to journalists who did question is telling in itself, they're no longer journalists. They didn't play the game so got the boot.

After all that, how can you say there isn't a conspiracy? People will lie and join in a conspiracy if they think it's in everyone's best interest. Want an example? Do you tell your kids that Santa Claus exists? Point made.

Yeah thats bullshit. It would be waay more comfortable to go back to sleep.

"When in fact it shows mental retardation in an individual that believes in no conspiracies."

TRUE.  But also applies to an individual that believes in all conspiracy theories.

{Creationists who proclaim "Evolution is just a theory" please take note.}

OverTheHedge's picture

So, the author doesn't believes in conspiracy theories but "The Deep State is desirous of a race war and their media mouthpieces are busy spreading misinformation and falsehoods to further rile up the masses."

Is that one a conspiracy fact, fully proven with documentation? I quite agree with the sentiment, but show me documented proof, otherwise it is just a theory about powerful people conspiring to provoke a reaction that benefits said powerful people. You can't tell me there is no conspiracy, except this one. Oh, and that one, and the one over there. But all the others are silly.

I get what he is saying, but I believed that it is more comforting to believe in random acts, that don't need fighting against, than the idea that a small group of lunatics are playing a not very well thought out game of Risk, with real lives and real deaths, for their personal advancement. If you take this view, then by definition, you ought to be doing something about it. Me? I hide on a hill in the middle of nowhere, and hope no one notices I am here. Cowardice is alive and well, and living in my house. It's important to be honest, I think. I have too much to lose, and not enough to gain, to take up the arms of righteous indignation against the wrongs of the oligarchic dictatorship. For the moment, anyway. I also live in someone else's country, and they are all mad foreigners so not to be taken seriously. It helps, believe me. If I still lived in the UK, I might well have been arrested years ago, for doing something impulsively stupid.

Conspiracy Or Chaos?

My response: Probably a combination of both. Something DEEP, DARK and SINISTER is coming to America ... we have legislators and leaders in government, business and religion who are behaving very, very strangely. I will leave it right there and say no more.

@ Future,

Conspiracies are really just a Bias term for the truth we do not want to believe in.

First of all, very few people hold internationalist opinions outside of pure economic terms and almost none advertise it. Second, Rockerfeller's admission to being a part of a secretive cabal of people working to undermine national governments and move sovereignty to a global level hardly removes the conspiratorial nature of it, by definition. He never says which groups or de facto groups he belongs to. He doesn't mention names, or what he has done or will do. He doesn't say how much money he's given. The fact that a single KGB spy defects doesn't unravel all of the KGB sleeper cells who come out of the woodwork and say "OK you got me!!". You see, with these NWO types you need to hit the nail precisely on the head, and only then will they deflect by saying that "well I don't attend meetings in robes and don't sacrifice children so I guess I'm OK!!". That only absolves him of the comic book characterization, not of the legitimate substantive charges of being a part of a group of extraordinarily powerful elites who are working to break down borders and unite world government with total impunity, with zero oversight, and with power approaching the CIA.

Look, this goes out to anybody listening - there are conspiracy theories, and then there are true stories about people with an ungodly amount of power and wealth and a lot of "ideas" about the way the world should be. Do you want to permanently change your opinion of what's possible in this world? Watch Soros talk about "getting hooked on experimenting with regime change" in third world countries on 60 minutes. And then check him out creating democratic revolutions in Eastern Europe, post-USSR collapse. This is the kind of stuff CIA keeps off its books and calls it "black ops". He just comes right out and says it in "oh so many ways" on tape, not to dissimilar to Rockerfeller. It's like both of them employ the "catch me if you can" motto - if you can get me to an intreview and ask me precisely the right question to a nanometer of tolerance, I'll answer, but that and only that!!

In summary, there is a group of global elites working to create a world government, world law, and a world bureaucracy without telling any of us this and the scope of their activities, and it should freak everybody the fk out. And I'm SURE that they don't think of themselves as such, as can be evidenced by Rockerfeller's reluctant flip-flopping admission, but that is nevertheless who they are.

Jews at 2.2% of the US population...is their a statistics person amongst us that could calculate the Standard Deviation for the Number of Jews in a row as head of the US Federal Reserve?

Volcker was the only one I could find and they only chose him because of his superior intellect. If not for him, a mere data point, there are zilch others so it becomes a number divided by 0 which is no standard of deviation, it's infinity. They must have been scared shitless to bring a Goy into the fold to save their bacon (pork). If they had ever selected the second one at least they could have drawn a straight line, not a curve, mind you.

Now the data points on this cluster look like a bird shot pattern at a turkey shoot. This bunch of Babylonian idiots are taking the entire mess down and all the serfs and slaves can't save it. Christians are the problem, they think these idiots are genuine semitic Hebrews. Trace the origins of the Star of David, better hurry or it will be revisionist and become fake news. The Old Testament begins to make sense if you substitute some head reptile with scales and slitted pupils with a human shape for Yahweh-Jehovah. No way a human God could be that vicious and be followed by Christ.

If the (((bankers))) are not in control, they're so lucky that it defies any logical explanation. No one "just happens" to be on the winning side of EVERY SINGLE conflict.

2013 Headline:  "Goldman Sachs had 236 profitable days of trading last year (and just 15 days of losses)"  

Today those Goldman Sachs guys are running the US economy form their offices in the Trump Administration. They're just lucky, I guess.

Did you guys know that having drunken sex is illegal in Iceland?
Evidently illegal at my local Trader Joe's as well

Sorry, did I drift off topic there a little?

Well, I started reading the article and became so nauseous and peeved that I couldn't finish it so I scrolled to the bottom to see what kind of snide remarks you guys had left and realized THERE WERE NO COMMENTS! ....... And if I hurried I COULD BE the FIRST poster dude!

So I grabbed the first thing I could find that had any relevance at all off of the desk top and plastered her up. ........ I hit 'reply' in a state of hyperventilation annnnnd waited for the PAINFULLY SLOW ZH server to respond.

Finally after what felt like hours but was probably only a minute or two the screen began to flicker and scroll on its own and, at last, revealed that I had achieved the Holy Grail of posting first! .. Top dog! .. Right there at the front of the line was I. .... Donnie, my NSA snoopy pet doesn't even let me see most articles for the first hour and a half. (He must have taken a bathroom break and missed the Quinn piece.)

But I apologize for not picking a more polished or amusing handbill to plaster up right on top of the pile.

Too much information for ya?

Now, what were you saying about having drunken sex with Trader Vic? .. Or was it Joe?

I'm sure it's much more amusing and definitely more relevant than the fun I sometime have with my mouse and keyboard on Donnie's night off.

I forgot to add.....

Jim Quinn, you are a moron and your article is bullshit.

There are conspiracies all around us every day. ... A lot of them are criminal. ... Some are immoral ...... And some are so fucked up as to defy description. ...... Some are fairly benign.

Not all conspiracies are perpetrated by the same group of evil assholes ALTHOUGH there is a certain group of evil conspirators that are very consistent in that they are always conspiring to fuck over everyone not in their little conspiracy club.

I repeat, if you think people never conspire against the interests of others you are in all probability an idiot or do not really believe what you are saying and maybe a member of or paid tool in the service of the biggest, most fucked up group of conspirators the world has ever seen.

Or you are a moron, Jim.

Jimm,

This article is exactly what the conspirators would write if they so conspired.

Hanlon's Razor is a valid application of the general idea of Occam's Razor, in the absence of evidence to the contrary. However, there is an overwhelming abundance of evidence that human history has been a grand conspiracy based upon the applications of the principles and methods of organized crime. Indeed, warfare was organized crime on larger and larger scales, while it was the history of warfare which created the civlization that "we" are now living inside.

Conspiracy or Chaos?

How about both? Evil is real, and Satan is now in control.
