As long as the systems of control, crafted carefully over centuries by the entrenched elites, were able to sustain themselves within the illusions that they had embedded within the language, the mechanisms of control were possible. Stated another way for clarity; as long as the entrenched elite had control of the illusion, the illusion of control works for them. However, the opposite is also true, and this is where we find ourselves now; that is to say, at a point in time where the entrenched elite are using the control systems so badly that they are stepping outside of the inherent limitations imposed by the use of language as their primary control mechanism. Again, stated another way for clarity....when the 'prime proponents of democracy planet-wide (e.g. usa senators)' vote to 'legalize their war on their constituent populace' they are stepping outside of the inherent common consensus understanding of 'USA democracy' at such a level as to disrupt the illusion that allows them to control. Make any sense at all? The 'herd' is smelling the 'slaughter house', both metaphorically and actually. The stench of blood work travels on the air.

Everything seems extremely slow and boring right now. After so much happened in bursts during various periods last year, we are currently in a gestation period. We are in a period of building tension. In retrospect, it seems that this period began in September/October of last year, thus it has now been building energy for almost five months. This period of building tension happened after the last major release of energy in this Fourth Turning and that was in August/September, with the debt ceiling debt debacle, markets crashing, gold soaring and the emergence on the scene for the first time of a “progressive/urban rebellion” against bankster puppet Barack Obama from within his own set of perceived supporters. Namely, the OWS movement.
Yes, everything seems extremely slow and boring right now. This is an illusion. As I said at the time, the emergence of OWS was a huge deal. Obama and his minions immediately attempted to co-opt the movement and create class warfare and that failed miserably. Once that failed, King Bloomberg and other feudal mayors from all across the country went out and cleared them out in a coordinated fashion. Let me ask you a question? If this movement had publicly supported Obama and his dishonest agenda do you really think they would have been cleared out so aggressively? I for one do not. TPTB initially saw the movement as a way to divide and conquer the nation along the traditional geographic and “cultural” lines. Once this failed, and they recognized that it actually had much in common with the angst of the tea party movement (demands for an end to crony capitalism, no bail outs or socialism for the super rich connected elites while at the same time free market capitalism and austerity for the poor) they shut it down faster than you can say 99%.
There is a reason I put “cultural” in quotations in the above paragraph. The reason is that the most powerful players in this nation that seek to control the sheep class (pretty much everyone that remains asleep, both rich and poor) through the old tried and true method of divide and conquer. While Obama talked about bringing together red states and blue states during his speech at the Democratic national convention in 2004, as is standard operating procedure for this pathological liar he actually views everything from a divide and conquer standpoint. So the story we are told is that there are “red” states and “blue” states and that we aren’t supposed to like each other and that on most of the important issues the various populations are diametrically opposed to each other. They make it seem this way by never actually really debating the issues that really matter to our freedoms and economic prosperity. They instead pick out divisive and highly emotional “social” issues, that while I understand are important to many, believe me are being used very deliberately to keep you heated and engaged in furious debate over these less consequential matters while they avoid talking about the stuff that really matters like the Federal Reserve and the counterfeit monetary system they run to bail out the richest and most connected, as well as the dissolution of your civil rights and the rule of law. So indeed this “cultural” divide is patently false but it has held sway for so long because humans are inherently tribal creatures. The good news is that Americans are now for the first time in perhaps a generation figuring out that we are indeed ONE culture and that culture is being systematically and intentionally dismantled right before our very eyes. That culture revolves around the Constitution of the United States of America and its all important Bill of Rights, without which this country would never have become what it was. TPTB are aware of the fact that we are rediscovering the common thread that binds us and they are flipping out. OWS was the final straw.
So OWS came on the scene at roughly the same time the markets were crashing and gold was soaring. These guys had seen enough. While markets have been manipulated forever, what I have noticed over the last several years is that it gets exponentially worse at certain moments. Something causes a freak out moment and they redouble their efforts to keep the populace asleep based on heavier doses of propaganda and market manipulations. That is how we turned from massive tension release into this five month period of tension build we are now in. It is winter and although OWS has been evicted, rebellion is certainly not dead, it is simply regrouping and to figure out the next best way to attack the corrupt house of cards. Similarly, investors that are cognizant of what the Central Banks of the world are doing to destroy currency did not simply decide to buy IBM and JPM after realizing the futures markets have been killed following than ransacking of MF. No, they too are regrouping and figuring out other ways to own physical assets as far away from the grubby hands of the casino operators as possible.
The reason I don’t write about markets so much anymore is because I don’t believe there are markets any longer. Sure there are flashing prices on the screens for various assets and those can be addicting to look at on a daily basis, but I think these “markets” are now merely a mechanism for government propaganda and a method to ultimately fleece more money from the uniformed masses that play in it by the casino operators and their puppets in government. It’s basically a hologram. I have alluded to this in recent interviews, but I myself feel extremely uncomfortable being involved at this point in a way I have never felt before. For now, I am still willing to play the game with some of my own capital but I fear I may regret this decision and that the smart thing would be to pull out completely and go entirely into hard assets as well as real estate abroad. This game is not safe.
By definition, the longer the period of tension building the more explosive the release will be when it ultimately happens. This period has already been going on for almost five months with only minor releases so I think we are already staring down the barrel of something horrific. Should they actually succeed and delaying the release until after the election I expect the release scenario to be downright cataclysmic. Should they succeed to delay it that far I hope I am wise enough to pull the remainder of my assets out of this casino beforehand and get entirely physical.

The final thought I want to leave you with is perhaps the most important one. While watching the criminals that run the nation manipulate, scheme and systematically dismantle our inherent rights as human beings is bewildering and frustrating, I believe their actions are representative of nothing more than rats scurrying around. The much more important thing is that humanity is waking up and beginning to rise to the occasion. These moves by them are last ditch attempts to preserve their system of control and their positions in society. Unfortunately for them, we are in the midst of a mega cycle of structural change and everything they are fighting to save will end regardless of what they do.
Here’s a personal story. I was having drinks with three other people recently here in Boulder. Every single person at the table thought the official 9/11 story was a total bunch of bull (building 7 anyone?). I didn't even bring it up. It was remarkable. That never would have happened three years ago. So my point is, every day that passes results in more people waking up to who the criminals are. This has now backed them into a corner where they feel like they need to always avoid another downturn at all costs. Historically, they always have used the downturns to manipulate public opinion and consolidate control further but we have turned their playbook around on them. We are now waiting for the downturn to pounce on them because we know who they are and what they are up to. They are totally cornered.
To conclude, I recently taped another interview with Max Kesier on RT and it can be seen here. I come in halfway, but the whole show is really hilarious and worth a watch. Please take a look.
Oh and here is a little cartoon to lighten up your day!
