The Eagle Has Fallen – Right on Cue

The Eagle Has Fallen – Right on Cue

Division, division, division. Yada, yada, yada! Shock horror! The Second US Civil War is in full swing. Swipes at diversionary behavior with sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea. The (virtually) whole of Congress throws the Sanction Button switch to order. The Janus inspired two faces of Trump obeys the “Throw everyone into confusion” order coming from behind the curtain of control.

If this was Hollywood the thumbs down from critical appraisal would sink this film script before it got ten minutes into the matinee performance on the first day. Yet it is festering, fermented and flagged by the voice-box – aka – The Mainstream Media, like some broken record on crystal meth.

To that growing section of the Western world’s population caring for signs and portents this is not unexpected and more poignantly, really bad news for the next phase.

‘Why?’ you may ask.

Because with the transparency that is the hallmark of arrogant grandstanding, those  pulling the strings in this worsening theater piece have so little care for outcome and every intention for their own glory, even if that glory needed garnering from an underground bunker.

Lapping at the puppet masters’ every order are so many quisling yes guys in political high office, self serving corporate self interest and minions blindly following in the belief rewards follow like sweeties at the ‘tuck shop’ counter. Psychopaths and psychos in process all of them!

The pronouncements uttered and political suicide pills DC seem hell bent on taking have a sick familiarity to them and many ‘I told you so‘ echoes to them.

Truth be told, again: America has been carved out over many decades to fall on the sword of its own arrogant sense of great self, albeit unwittingly. It was set up in modern times through the manipulated Crash of 1929. So few have any idea of how much of a canary in the mine-shaft this event was. It was always taken as a huge economic disaster so many never saw coming. Yet for those uncovering the form, it had terminal written all over it.

That is the point – ignorance of true intent, true goings on – will always produce an intake of collective breath and horror at the seeming impossible transpiring. Think Titanic, World Wars I, II and III, the death of John Lennon, Patrice Lumumba, Gandhi and so much more.

World War III? It has not happened yet!

For those thinking thus, I rest my case.

Like a nail beaten forcibly and definitively into wood, America is being driven into the ground to become as the dust of 9/11 – set up, toxic, destroyed of all later evidence for forensic study and made to look completely unexpected. Though frankly for a nation so desensitized, disbelieving of its own self created demise you could forgive them for thinking so. Yet this sort of reaction is so far from reality as to be a perfect contender for one of their saccharin sweet, nauseatingly self adulatory Hollywood scripts with full cast clapping at the denouement!

The isolation the USA –  or being more factually correct – those in DC, within the Beltway and treasonous military interests, both client and supplier – is self created. They are marching to orders from forces who have taken over the established ruling order like cuckoos taking over the nest of an unsuspecting mother bird.

The destruction of the USA was preordained and that plan, through the blind self interest and utter stupidity of those sealing their collective fate, is right on cue and perfectly and symmetrically balanced.

Some might scream Russia, China and other smaller players are running this show. For your own sanity and for fear of being declared 100% blind deaf and dumb do not go there.

For those that have taken the poison the MSM spew out, like good pharma-crazed zombies, the fact it has nothing to do with these so called ‘enemies’ will seem illogical, unbelievable and so conspiratorial as to be rejected outright. If that is the case then be warned you have just signed your own death warrant!

For whatever comfort it offers, had both Russia, China and Iran not been as they stand today we’d be breathing already the deadly soup of apocalyptic fallout. It may merely still be  postponed, so count not your chickens quite yet.

What is obvious is that these three players were never expected to go this distance, with this amount of restraint and resistance. The miscalculation was as great and as admissible when we hear, just the other day, the head of the Rothschild cabal proclaim they have little idea of what the heck is going to happen next.

For two reasons, at least, this is a good sign. One, because not having any real planned idea of what happens next gives time for those sane enough to maintain a step ahead, keep their powder dry and outwit a force so long in total control. Secondly, these powers of control are not, as often is credited, entities of omnipotence and far sighted wisdom. Quite the opposite, their reactions almost always fall down into knee jerk mode making mistakes no one could have foreseen. This sort of positioning has and always will be the Achilles heel of psychopaths, moneyed or otherwise.

So for now, may I suggest you gather your personal powder, keep it dry, ditch fiat above any amount needed to meet the requirements of a system you interact with and watch for arrogance and overarching stupidity to crash into its own nemesis-filled end, most probably sooner than later.

In all of this, never fall for fear, just watch with engagement, keep others informed, supported and critically thinking, maintain non attachment and hold deep gratitude for being born to witness these most interesting of times. We all die one day, just make sure today is the very best of all days gifted you.  Thus the sweet juices of experience can be memorably etched deep into your very own Akashic phrase in the book of no rubbing out!

Once the Eagle has fallen, that is when the Phoenix will know and be invited to rise…..

 

 

Theft, Lies and Propaganda

Theft, Lies and Propaganda
While we are all set one against the other, we are left no room for a cohesive stand against real criminality perpetrated while coaxed into and occupied in continual infighting.
Brexit being one such tool – it always has been.
The 5%’s emolument, gain and enrichment is tethered to the rapacious Tory Greed Machine. This mechanism is filled up at the gas station of arrogance, topped up with total insensitivity and pollutes the roads and byways of Collective Support with rabid Self Interest. Its toxic fumes choke us all. If that was not bad enough we are held up by teams of Highway Robbers, spouting “We’re all in it together!” and “We are for All The People!” and more such BS. Meanwhile they whip the few pennies, savings, health and well being we saved and nurtured, the houses we thought were our castle, last bastion of reward for hard work and the inheritance we hoped our children and their children would be able to use to pave the way for a better, fairer world.
Keeping us sick, making us sicker as our NHS is handed over to private profit and the threat of instant dismissal of nurses, doctors and servants of health for the people, under the banner of austerity and cost cutting is the only way to profit. It merely loads up a future where the superficial looks rosy and selfless, yet its true apparel is one of deprivation, despair and death.
Our young know and see through these veils of deceit. They smell the treachery and greed surrounding them, the starvation from preschool to university. They shudder in horror at the piling up of the usurious debt they are asked to carry for the rest of their lives, the lack of meaningful employment on zero hours.
They see only despair in a Tory Future. The few that are promoted and offered up as examples of Right Working for All are chancers making a quick fortune on the back of the rest, promoted by sycophantic media as the future. The Pure Propaganda poured out by the BBC, the bias on the right, the Establishment and all self interests are fawned, cow towed to in a way that makes good people, awakened, sick to the pit of their stomach.
Are we to allow these insensitive, uncaring, self interested inexcusable representatives of humanity yet more power, yet more control and yet more dominion over us and our future?
The answer has to be a resounding: “NO WE WILL NOT !”
Robin Hood, Luke Skywalker, Alfred The Great, Boadicea, John Lennon, Clement Attlee, John Locke, William Wallace and the rest – just some of the many sorely missed and so needed now.
Where are you now when we most need you?
We must find all these great people who came before within ourselves, emulate their visions, believe in their dreams where people matter, society cares for each other and truth speaks its soft spoken verity and better times are cultivated!
On all these shoulders stands one leader, whose voice, though drowned by bias, propaganda, BS and lies still resonates a clarion call to sanity, a vociferous cry for peace and one of that history will surely write down as a true Hero of the People:
Stand by support Jeremy Corbyn, the #Labour Party and a return to Power for The Many Not The Few!

Read the extraordinary, true story of one man’s uncovering the mechanisms of global control in Dreams and Realities

“Unputdownable” – Katherine Fenton – Actress
===================

The Heavy Hand of Empire – The Dull Bell of Deceit!

The Heavy Hand of Empire – The Dull Bell of Deceit!

Every cheer of “Hail The Emperor“, every flag waived for victory of Regime/Party/Government, shouts of “Long Live [enter country]“, “Our Right is Might” “Hurrah for the King/Queen/President/Dictator/Puppet” is the sound of a dulled, duped and despised populace by a psychotic Elite, impressed on nothing other than their own power, vanity and enrichment.

We all know power corrupts!

To create a surge of popular support all manner of travesties need implementing. The first to be proffered is THE VOTE. This is then followed by heavy insistence on the existing principle of FREE AND FAIR. Once this has been consumed the placatory dessert of TRUTH AND FREEDOM is a mandatory offering. All these essential First Responders are followed in quick succession by a barrage of appeasement by way of promises of the easy to the wildly impossible.

The target in all this play has ever been – the mind of the recipient. Control that mind and you have full control. In days of old methods used and handled were brute force, belligerence and bellicose behaviour. Today progressing into so called civilised states these methods remain at the very centre of the psychopathic despots’ tool kit, yet neatly wrapped in wool of accepted flannel, namely propaganda, lies, deceit and distraction.

undercoshIn days gone by it was easier to crush a population to the will of the Elite through force brutal oppresionalone. Limited and exclusive access to education enabled fear through harassment by praetorian guard, special forces, militarised police, army units or religious leaders to maintain a quiescent people under control and under the cosh.

Today the Internet offers an arm for the freedom fighter while at the same time creating a tantalizing divisive tool of deception for the powers that be. An overkill of information does not procure an education for those participating in its availability. On the contrary social media becomes a drug of addiction and an impression of invincibility to speak loud and vocally to a world perceived to be listening. Most of the time these resonate as the echo of a hollow box, when used without thought or planning, negating the impact most messages and communication could achieve.

The Viral Weapon is a much hyped and poignant methodology. Its counter use by those most fearing its potency, comes through flamboyant distracting fluff thrown out by media and control, like cake from a royal carriage. It ends up splattered over mindless attention spans of sycophants, bottom feeders and the fully ponerized. When used strategically it carries a wholly more relevant and effective message. A message of truth, moving under the radar and mortally wounding any elite messaging. Truth, reality behind manipulated circumstance and the awareness of being played like a fiddle usurps the chintz of celebrity, here today gone tomorrow ‘Awesome Wow’ exciting and stimulating craving of a shallow and superficial emotionally divided population. The repetitive, toxic and embedded nature of memed mind games sidelines real messages from its widest audience, yet when exposed propaganda crumbles into dust with the effect of the reciprocal torch of focus shining back on the true manipulators.

For many the constant barrage of deceit throws down a challenge too far, subduing weak minds. It leads to surrender, quiescence and ultimate collusion through silence becoming the berth of choice.

It would be both fatal and foolish to believe we have to  “Abandon hope all who enter here“. Social media communications may be described as “a hollow echo chamber” by those very well aware of its dangerously challenging nature  but it is never enough to slaughter the effect it can have, used tactically and through the power of the many, to redefine the greater picture.

Their message to slag off its relevance while denying its potency, to all who use their critical faculties, further accentuates the desperation of action to ban, sideline, diminish or demonize it. These are the tactics of a frightened elite, fearsome media losing its audience against the rise of the popular voice. I could have used the term ‘Populist’ however the Powers That Be (PTB) manipulate this word, as with so many others, in a very pejorative way. It is the same with their description of the other side of the story told being described as ‘Alt media’ and Fake News – intimating their legitimacy as dubious at best. The whole campaign of Fake News turns on this deceit. Whenever fake news (propaganda) is disseminated by the mainstream, so as to avoid the lens focusing on their fake, dissembling pieces, they lash out and blame those challenging and telling the other side, the greater truth. These tactics are as old as the hills. Trouble is today they are becoming more and more transparent, so as to awaken those previously somnolent into an alert, awakened state.

Quotefancy-16646-3840x2160

Not one of us can afford to lay back on our laurels at times like these. We often hear the cry: ‘What can I do to effect change in the world?‘ – this question is either a search for action or more likely the response rosa-parks---legacyof an overwhelmed and conditioned mind constantly told how powerless one person is towards making a difference. This is the greatest lie. A ripple always starts with seemingly minuscule action, able to turn into a tsunami of change far greater than believed. Rosa Parks, with her steadfast challenge to racial segregation comes to mind – one of many thousands.

Everyone has at least another to share with, one to challenge and persuade of a more compassionate, empathic and caring path. Where there are two there is even greater reach and so on and so forth. All within our present connectivity and environment. Only if we truly support and believe what we feel, if only we put those beliefs into action for others to experience, witness and observe will change be at least stimulated. The rest is out of our hands!

We can never change anyone.

What we can do is through example, considerate manner, listening and offering alternative viewpoints, feed others enabling development towards their own change. If that necessitates releasing a personal goal for the collective betterment then selfless service is precisely what changes the world!

Empires fall when critical mass of such actions takes place.

We are at a point today when that is not only demanded but is within our reach.

Never let anyone refute that truth. Turn the dull bell of deceit into a celebratory ringing in of cooperative collective consideration where the many are served, not the few!

What We Feed You is How We Play You

What We Feed You is How We Play You

“D’ya see that great movie the other night. Wasn’t it awesome?”

“So emotional!”

“My favourite soap is so real to life, isn’t it?”

“Love the blood and guts. Wanna go and blow those rag heads to Hell”

“Aw, coulda cried my eyes out. So sad she lost her man”

“We’ll show ‘em exceptional!”

“I so want to be that guy/girl.”

“Make Believe sure, but I’d love to just get lost in that fantasy world right now!”

It has been the dream of every despot, control freak and tyrannical power entity to be able religion-fakenewsto control, mind meld and subject their every citizen to the will of the ruling elite. Bloody oppression on a local scale was the recipe of choice in ages gone by. Religious edict has always been the ‘causus controlata’ down the ages, irrespective of original intention by instigators of whatever belief system. Today these control freaks have been blessed with an overarching and wet dreamed answer to their prayers in the the form of successful penetration through technological advancement. Far from setting us free it has been purloined and used as the main successful tool for our own self selected imprisonment and/or demise.

For those never having experienced life without the pernicious, invasive creep of things technological, these statements may seem irrational fear mongering nonsense and fuddy duddy rubbish. Oh, ye ignorant masses!

With the innovation of moving images at the end of the 19th century, advancing rapidly towards today’s steroid punched ‘entertainment industry’, a vast all encompassing art form has been corralled into the mind controlling, fear inducing desires of the Empire.

No, not the cinema chain, the ruling elite!

propaganda-globalHollywood right from its outset was created and made then and today in its horrific mode, to capture, steer and inculcate hearts and minds. Our emotions, especially unrefined, raw emotions, untrained to be under intelligent control, become rich fields for exploitation and messing with.

Nah! Harmless fun, distraction and entertainment, you say.

Fun it can be, harmless definitively and absolutely not, distraction certainly and entertainment – well that depends on who is really being entertained.

Some may feel I am harsh in my appraisal. Others will consider me a party pooper on theirpropagandamediaentertainment choices’. So be it – however until we use our mind, our critical thinking as to what ends and for why this whole industry is so full of glitz, glamour, money, sex and manipulation – well I feel even in those few words many might spark a chink of ‘aha light’. But let us assume that is not the case. Let us just follow the money. By the way the best way to track down dirt, deceit and malevolent intent is by doing precisely that – follow the money!

The entertainment industry – be it music, film, art, television, newspapers (MSM is truly that nowadays) online distractions – has several goals. A main one, for all creaming the most profit, is to serve agendas of masters/owners/Deep State that utilise their inherent expertise for propaganda, mind control and desensitisation of the masses . While so many believe, blissfully ignorant or uncaring of endgames, the very powers instigating these modalities are occupied in, they drink in the lie that truth tellers are mere tinfoil and conspiracy. This creates distraction, division and opposite camps infighting. An abject, intended outcome from the start. However to focus on what we are universally being served is the object of this article.

I need to clarify my interest – I come from a lifetime spent in the ‘industry of illusion’. You could say I served the propaganda masters fully and for selfish intent. Well you would be right.

I saw the advertising and film industry as a marvellous channel for my creativity and rosedreams-cover-600-400 to be a significant master of the arts. What I failed to take on board and recognise was the full feature, the main attraction behind the main attraction, if you will. Experience and years have helped open my eyes and see the real hidden pernicious creature behind the curtain. The Wizard was truly non existent – read my book Dreams and Realities to navigate that underbelly, a con with feet of clay, supported only by the belief in the Yellow Brick Road to dreams offered temptingly but never allowed to realise in the true potential those denying it allow themselves. You are never allowed to join the club unless you live by their rules.

There are so many examples to cite along the rocky road to propagandised perfection, however I will merely take a couple I came across today that inspired me to write this.

Because we are being hit tsunami-like with the well proven and successful operation called entertainment , we have become so distracted, so divided among each other and so unclear and incapable in recognising truth from lies. Where to start becomes a minefield. Most take the position in comfortable ignorance, easy compliance and self satisfied stupidification. So easy to avoid uncomfortable and disrupting truths. Best slag off those awake to such things while remaining dead asleep.

I turned to watch a trailer for the film Arrival – a film I admit I very much wish to watch, as the underlying story is interesting. This of course is what makes any of us watch, gain interest. Nothing wrong with that, absolutely. Where the entrance of discrimination against intent (with the creators’ money) and objectives are concerned – it is vital to hold clear thinking, intelligence and reasoning on why such things, outside of pure hollywoodciaentertainment is concerned, are set before us.

The film deals with aliens first contact, comprehending and communicating between two parties. It also deals with misinterpretation, the usual blast’ em to Hell arrogance of the military mind against a sage and considered empathic approach. So many films of ‘aliens, otherworld, zombie’ subject based movies ‘entertain’ through the fear factor. the unknown. Whereas masters such as Hitchcock used the fear element as a dramatic tool and brilliantly correctly, fear utilised today is far more bent on drilling that fear deep into our core system,keeping it alerted awaiting a trigger through use of key word triggers (NLP) in daily life.

Easily identifiable ones come to mind triggering gut reaction or feeding a false sense of comfort on a daily basis: some are conspiracy theory, tin foil, collateral damage, boots on the ground, shock and awe, extraordinary rendition, Islamist, terrorists and on and on. On the political stage we get a real load of terms to control and persuade. Death with dignity (for suicide), austerity measures, quantitive easing, vertically challenged for short. Recently deplorables is a current derogatory term for those thinking differently and of course post-truth – as if there is something after truth!

Euphemisms are a propagandistic tool of misdirection. They ill serve a free people. But advocates won’t stop manipulating us until we insist that they “call a spade a spade” – Wesley J. Smith

The process of dumbing down through the rise of ‘dumb’ films is certainly one way of condoning and retaining ignorance levels and supporting lack of intellect to be a positive quality and hip to be lauded. Making heroes out of the Idiocracy is not only a cheap gag but also satiates those who exist on that level in their blissful state of ignorance.

Another film I ‘trailered’ was IT in which the excellent Pierce Brosnan seems to have put his name against, in order to settle some outstanding tax liabilities perhaps. The story line can be summed up in showing the audience that anyone, especially the CIA, though not portraying this film’s antagonist, can get into your life completely in our technological age of uber infestation. Whether the film has merits is for me irrelevant as the cash cow was always to implant even greater fear in Joanna Public. Mission – constantly ramp up the fear we are never safe from terror. That the terror is incoming and from the inside is an unspoken truth never ending investigation. They who set up, order and perpetrate these things have zero interest in any of us maintaining our sentient, individual beings with pertinent choice. Ah, choice that’s another great euphemism for freedom, democracy and the ‘Mercan way, itself a euphemism for the right to invade over 70 countries world wide in its relatively short existence.

Black Hawk Down, The White Helmets, Designated Survivor, World War Z, American Sniper, Argo and a host of others hidden in many other subject areas, are doing an excellent job conditioning the feeble minds of compliant sheep.americansniper

In the vein of mind control and softening up a population for current and future lock down, dehumanisation and denial of empathic life the movie industry, as sponsored and run by Hollywood and the Mainstream media, has been outrightly successful in pretty much all areas of its objectives. Yet alongside the proliferation of their fake news, these organs are awakening even the most somnolent with their more and more implausible BS. It is unsurprising the worm is turning. The battle now is for our minds, as the visionary Sir George Trevelyan once so rightly stated. The real battlefield and war zones are in our heads, in the way we perceive, think and make choices.

Since getting the best from these activities requires a serious dose of self education, it is incumbent on each of us to develop critical thinking, our capacity to filter truth from lies and a desire for far deeper research than is offered by way of the institutionalised news, entertainment and information outlets. By refusing to take up these arms we consign ourselves to the fate and mercy of tyrannical rule, dressed, cross dressed and displayed by way of celebrity icon, sexualised music totems and BS spread as our daily ration. The deep oozing, putrid and fast decomposing cesspit of gargantuan lies offer illimitable distraction and fascination to the pliant. Until we are able to disengage from the overt control pushed through entertainment and newspeak we will all fast forward down into the oceans of swill and sure death.

It is absolutely fine and proper we entertain ourselves but let us do so on a level so far removed from the base plate offered as the choice of tyrants, psychopaths and abject loonies. We feed the beast with our coin. We buy into their scripts and digest their dirt. Withdrawing our support may mean short term loss, yet supporting alternative funding for films of depth and insight is one step in the right direction. Crowdfunding such efforts, promoting the few films the music that matters and the art that is revolutionary is so far into our grasp as to leave no room for excuses.  red-carpetdr-1400x1866

Can you imagine a world created through the highest good, the profoundest intention and with the benefit of present technology? Then if you can you will know what a golden gift we have all denied ourselves and been denied. We may not be able to heal the past and our lost way, yet collectively through whatever means we each have at our disposal we can assure our future and our children’ future will not have to carry  a trace of the present contamination and toxicity.

Now that is a show I will pay the top dollar for!

Living in That Scary Place

Living in That Scary Place

World’s gone even more crazy than yesterday. Probably will be crazier tomorrow than today, so preparing oneself for Scary 46.0 might seem like the best plan.cellphone_slavery_17

All the tools we have around us, you know those distracting hand-helds, the bozo screen in the corner of the room, the social media where we can rage to our heart’s content believing nothing comes back to us in our comfortable aerie in downtown Wacko or deep in the countryside of Mid Shiredom.

Well one small item we may have forgotten. As much as we prefer not to paint ourselves  resembling human beings, cut off as we have created our lives, sans community, sans culottes, sans everything that matters – we still are human. We still retain an ability to think critically, act honourably, deal transparently and talk truth.

However actively denying these attributes brings such a retribution that if intelligence had been adhered to primarily we would never have dealt ourselves such blows of misfortune.

You see ego is a wily beast. Uncontrolled, unrestrained and unknown for its ultimate death blows, we easily allow it to become the Master of our Tiny Universe and maintain dominion over us.

As an essential part of our constitution, it has its place. When we do little to restrain, train and control it we enter “that scary place”. Denial never cuts a deal worth coping with, it merely hands over more power to this unrestrained beast, offering up more pain in store for that day you least expect it to bite back.

When these conditions are played out through the hands and actions of this we have so doggie-pooper-scooperwillingly allowed to have power over us, then we truly garner an unholy alliance of shite and aim it directly at the fan. We enter Poop Land, where every consequence is marked “Return To Sender“. Unalloyed Joy!

So as we live out our badly decision filled lives, many blame that old chestnut GOD, the immutable DOG spelled backwards, the Eternal Creative Force under which we remain powerless or other Immutable, Impenetrable Invisibility that conveniently releases us, allegedly from Ultimate Responsibility.

So does that make you feel a whole lot better knowing it is not your fault really and that destiny will wash it out in the Final Rinse?
Do you have  the certainty knowing you can just sit on your hands, tell others you were “just doing my job, guv!” and washing your proverbials of blame?

If you do, then you are in for a rude shock. One you will NEVER see coming and if glimpsed the question “Why?” will leave you farting in the wind before extinction. Think I am being over dramatic? Think again – your life will literally depend on it.

Truth is the Lion in the room. It will gobble you up as if you are a gazelle on the menu. Thelioncourage Lion of truth needs no sword – It is Master of its own clearing – It recognises being King of the Self is what counts. Accountable to and for its own actions, its own place in the order of things and its own wise strength and council.

Seek it out within you. Allay any fear of encounter. Slay the ego and rise up and face iniquity with the courage of that Lion, the strength of knowing and royal pride in standing with Truth.

At that time the Scary Place will melt as surely as the snows on Kilimanjaro will melt away in the face of the heat of eruption. Avoid the Poop, develop the Brave!

The Times of Guns and …

Roses Poppies.

As October turns its page and the November winds bring the expected chill to all, a greater bitterness is ignored and hid from view.

In the annals of human bestiality and destructive power, the symbol of the poppy is produced to recognize the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. An Armistice to millions slaughtered in the name of power and aggregation of wealth. Of course the word to those ignorant as to war’s true purpose, it personifies that great sacrifice made for Freedom and Democracy.

poppiesblood

How hollow these lies are seen for what they are from the distance of years. Yet still it does not affect the blindness of so many who cannot see the travesty continued and played upon lost souls, ignorant of present commitment to slaughter, destruction and the hawkers of greater lies.

Evil is resident within the very core of our lives yet the distractions offered like candy have a raw, repellent  and invidious means of hiding these truths. Addiction to such candy is such a pernicious pestilence as to make the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt seem like rank amateurs conjuring up  their own karmic returns.

We fondle our palm and handhelds, we chatter on our Galaxies and i-Phones yet the real information, the true news seems to skid around us as if it was some ephemeral irritating mosquito. Best swat it as its inconvenience brings realizations we prefer not encounter.

Denial in the face of a witch burning at the stake, a Christian thrown to the lions or children slaughtered without attention by the bombs and actions of the very leaders we allow, through passive acceptance, to  ‘fight for us’ add up to the same thing. An utter disregard for humanity. A disdain for truth and a roll over surrender to lies and manipulation.

On the 11th November the world is told to recognize heroes long dead, gallantry hard pressed. Yet these needless actions of the unwitting or cajoled are merely illustrations of very lambs to slaughter to feed an appetite of psychotic power. To glorify the very slaughter about to be rained down on us again for a third time under the pretense of fighting evil and terror, must be the very descriptor of lunacy.

Yet screaming from the surrounded towers of truth is a voice declaring these same terrorists ruling us are using their proxy prostitutes of psychopathy to deal the true injustices that war always has been. Poppies show the color of blood yet refuse to speak out the excrement ordering that blood spilled.

I am surrounded by those appeasing such evil, in the pursuit of inexcusable ignorance or even worse, refusal to accept hard truths for the comfort of easy lies. Such sorrowful humans exist in the depth of our families, strut their pernicious righteousness as alleged friends and acquaintances, pompously presuppose all people will blindly accept such end of days iniquities as plausible and right.medialies

The presstitutes, the television terrorist journalistic employees using the Mainstream to perpetrate such horrors demand the wearing of such poppies as marks of subservience, compliance and corrupted allegiance.

There can be no greater sick sycophancy than this annual abeyance of reality. Yet in truth when is it ever out of abeyance these days?

Does it take another dose of humanity’s lunacy to waken realization of what we have spent centuries denying? If it does it could be the final Yaroo  of a human race, like some lemming awakening as it falls to its death, recognizing it has become its own worst enemy and final executioner.

In the space that is eternity, this nano etch might come to be seen as an irritating interlude of little importance.

A minute’s silence anyone, or should we pause longer for illumination to spark?

To All In The So-Called Defence Industry – Poem by Adrian Mitchell

Arms trade workers, here’s an early warning
You might wake up tomorrow morning
And find that this is the glorious day
When all your jobs will just melt away
Because the people of the world are going to make sure
There’ll be no more, no more, no more war
So now’s the time to switch your occupation
From dealing in death and desolation
Don’t hang around now you’ve been told
The international murder trade’s about to fold
You won’t have to maim, you won’t have to kill,
You can use your brain and use your skill.
Peace needs workers of all kinds-
Make artificial limbs instead of landmines.
Tricycles instead of tridents,
Violins instead of violence,
Lifeboats, hospitals, medicine, drains,
Food and toys and buses and trains-
Come on, there’s plenty of work to be done
If we’re going to make peace for everyone.
