In the new story of spying we will see panic fly on wings that multiply until whole peoples become hysteric. . .
Even revolutions are hatched and wars launched that keep the whole world terribly on edge, all prepared by espionage.
— Joseph Gollomb, Armies of Spies (1939)
A MAN NAMED JAMES called in to a Chicago-based talk radio show last Saturday night.
The discussion was about President Trump’s announcement that the U.S. government will withdraw from a critical nuclear weapons control treaty with Russia.
“If Trump go[es] down, then that means he could move to Russia, and they could build a bomb and blow ALL of us up!”
The exchange occurred on the Salim Muwakkil Show (Saturdays, 7-10 p.m. CST on Chicago’s WVON).
Laugh for a moment at the utter craziness of the comment.
However, the fact is we can find many comparably crazy, extreme comments being made daily by “mainstream” pundits and “experts” and their random followers in the would-be #Resistance, who listen to the pundits and then believe themselves to be informed.
Thankfully, many Americans are not fooled. Not only Trump supporters but progressives who can’t stand Trump, have remarked that the level of media-induced panic and paranoid ideation toward the 45th president of the United States is off the charts.
Muwakkil himself — the talk show host who writes for left-wing journals such as In These Times and The Nation, has himself observed that media bias against Trump makes the truth difficult to discern.
Going a bit further, journalist Caitlyn Johnstone, a self-described socialist, writes that the media-political outrage and hyperbole machine is literally making people both physically and mentally ill with an induced epidemic of Trump Anxiety Disorder.
“The mass media is not in the business of reporting facts, it’s in the business of selling narratives,” Johnstone writes. “Even if those narratives are so shrill and stress-inducing that they imperil the health of their audience.”
In addition to making Trump haters retarded (or bringing out their existing retardedness), the crazy machine is pushing Trump into some retarded policy decisions that actually COULD get us all blown up.
Case in point: scrapping the nuclear arms treaty.
“We are about to enter a very dangerous and unstable period in U.S.-Russian relations, and the U.S. and Russia could soon be in a new arms race that neither country needs,” writes Daniel Larison of The American Conservative.
Former Senator Sam Nunn and former Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz warn that the U.S. and Russia are “sleepwalking toward nuclear disaster.” (By linking, we’re not necessarily endorsing their proposed solutions.)
And at least part of the blame for these world-endangering decisions can be placed squarely on the “resistance” and its Russiagate conspiracy theory — “in some ways worse than the Red Scare of old,” as foreign policy scholar David C. Hendrickson put it. The result is that “instead of an administration soft on Russia . . . Trump’s team, in its personnel and policies, has been deeply hostile to Russia and has opposed it across the board.”
The political and media establishment of Swampington have taken up the spurious Russiagate scandal — which clear-headed adults from both left and right have realized, to their alarm, is actually “Intelgate”: a hostile intelligence operation run by a faction of “our” cryptocracy, in league with foreign counterparts, against the United States.
In the words of a former Democratic Congressman and presidential aspirant, Swampington and its foreign accomplices are committing a coup against America — and it’s this lawlessness real Americans must #resist.
The Swamp has used the spurious allegations of collusion with Russia and the legally unfounded, conflict-ridden and thuggish Mueller investigation to mercilessly bully our elected chief executive out of any attempt to normalize relations with a historic U.S. ally.
And this crazy situation — propelled by crazy conspiracist allegations that have found exactly zero evidence in more than 2 1/2 years of searching — isn’t just making us sick.
In the distant or near future, it could make us all very, very dead.

BUT ALWAYS IN REALITY. We’ve been away from home, but not on vacation — just very busy, toiling very hard, in various and sundry other corners of the Web as well as IRL. It’s long past time to return and tend to the homestead (or what suffices for one at the moment). Bookmark this blog, and better yet, subscribe, to receive notifications of new posts to come shortly.

YOU ARE ROBERT DEAN, TARGETED INDIVIDUAL.
You’ve been unwittingly caught up in a drama involving repressive “anti-terror” legislation, a Senator’s murder, mob corruption, and ubiquitous government surveillance.
You’re trying to find and solicit the help of Brill, the good guy spy.
A guy intercepts you in the men’s room at the ferry station. He responds to the name Brill.
He even helpfully discovers and dismantles a tracking device hidden in your shoe.
Is he really Brill?
How would you know?
“Do you know how many federal agents you had following you on that ferry?”
“You have something they want.”
Watch from 1:06:00 to about 1:19:20 to get the scene.* Then, ask yourself some questions.

ON OBAMA’S ANNOUNCEMENT he’s going to “act alone” to solve the immigration crisis (that his administration has caused) because, he claims, Congress “won’t act” (to his satisfaction):
- If he chooses to act in ways not authorized under Congressionally enacted law and the united States Constitution, we have the right to ask: Who does this guy think he is? Who told him he was the king — and what do we need to do to disabuse him of that notion?
- If he simply means he will choose to act to enforce existing, duly enacted law that is constitutional — what took him so long to realize he should start doing his job?

IT’S THE YEAR of Tax and Monetary Truth: that’s what I (only twelve months late) am proclaiming 2013.
The following opinion, written by former Illinois banker Edward Mrkvicka, appeared in the April 7, 1992 edition of the Chicago Sun-Times. Since that time it has resided in one of several boxes comprising my morgue (that’s what they call a clipping file in the newspaper business. Hey kids — you’ve heard of newspapers, right?) I’m posting it here because it doesn’t seem to be available anywhere else on the Internet.
Return power to the people
By Edward F. Mrkvicka Jr.
Article I, Section 8, Clause 5 of the Constitution states, “The Congress shall have Power … To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standards of Weights and Measures.”
In 1913, Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act, which, in seeming violation of Article I, gave the power to regulate money to a handful of unelected private bankers.
America has been paying the price ever since.
Our founding fathers knew this basic truth: Those who control a nation’s money control the nation. That’s why the Constitution gave ultimate authority for our currency to the people. The passage of the Federal Reserve Act handed our economic future to an unsupervised private corporation called the Federal Reserve.
The issue of repeal is worthy of review for many reasons, the most pressing being our close to $4 trillion national debt (what more proof is needed that present policy is a failure?). This intolerable, crushing financial obligation threatens our very existence. And the prime force that has brought us to the edge of the insolvency abyss is the Federal Reserve Act.
As the Federal Reserve is a private banking institution, every time Congress requisitions money it creates a debt obligation. There have been thousands of these monetary transactions since 1913; i.e., a transfer of cash from the Fed in exchange for U.S. bonds, resulting in taxpayers paying untold billions of dollars in interest every year with no hope of ever being able to reduce the principal. By controlling our money, private Federal Reserve bankers have indebted us forever.
Repealing the act offers almost unfathomable economic rewards. A government that prints its own money cannot be indebted. Taxes could be slashed and the savings used by consumers. Government, instead of being forced to spend substantial tax dollars to pay interest, would be able to pay, not borrow, for housing, education, mass transit, health care and other critical social problems. By eliminating the Federal Reserve middleman, we would be able to create a debt-free, productive government at all levels.
Of course, Congress could abuse its recovered power and cause, for example, runaway inflation. However, if it does, we can exercise our right to vote members out of office. We are unable, by any means, in any manner, to affect the Fed.
America, while not the economic power it once was, is still the richest nation in the world. Yet average Americans have virtually none of the wealth. Thomas Jefferson was prophetic when he stated, “if the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and the corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” *
Repealing the Federal Reserve Act, while perhaps sounding extreme, is a concept produced by a belief in constitutionally mandated capitalism. Conversely, the Federal Reserve is a tool of totalitarianism. It has allowed a small number of private bankers to financially enslave America.”
– Edward F. Mrkvicka, Jr., who lives in Marengo, is author of The Bank Book.
- And I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale. (Letter to John Taylor, 1816)
- Bank-paper [credits from private banking institutions printed and circulated as money] must be suppressed, and the circulating medium must be restored to the nation to whom it belongs.”
Now back in the ’90s, Mrkvicka was on record as a supporter of the Sovereignty Proposal for debt-free United States Treasury money. He since threw his support behind Stephen Zarlenga, Dennis Kucinich and their proposal for Treasury-created interest-free money. I myself lean more toward the Monetary Reform Act.

OR SO YOU’D think,from all the royal brat worship filling every monopoly media channel wall-to-wall.
Barack Obama must be envious. There hasn’t been such a media orgasm since his 2008 campaign.
If there were any doubt our elite are essentially foreign in every sense that counts — a foreign occupying enemy, removed from and opposed to all that America once stood for — that doubt has been removed. Your national media elite openly glorify monarchy. They’ve decided you the people are obsolete, except from time to time when they need a mob of useful idiots to whip up and get you to cry for the abolition of your own rights. They’ve decided representative government, vertical and horizontal separation of powers, and the spirit of independence and liberty itself, are obsolete. Kings are the new thing.
Except, of course, that kings are not the new thing. They’re the old thing — the thing we overthrew in 1781.
If you the people decide kings and queens, princes and princesses, privileged aristocracies and obsequious man-worship, are the trendy thing, sexier than exercising and safeguarding your own rights and being your own leaders, then God help you — and may your chains rest lightly upon you.

Big-time globalist honcho Zbigniew Brzezinski, in his 1997 book, The Grand Chessboard – American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives, lays out his three-step formula to “offset, co-opt, and/or control” the “geopolitical critical Eurasian states.”
In a terminology that hearkens back to the more brutal age of ancient empires, the three grand imperatives of imperial geostrategy are to prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among the vassals, to keep tributaries pliant and protected, and to keep the barbarians from coming together…. Competition based on territory still dominates world affairs.
Do you think that just applies to Europe and Central Asia, or is it being applied amongst the “vassals” (provincial puppet rulers), “tributaries” (corporate cronies?) and “barbarians” right here at home?
Well, duh. Those are the first people you conquer when you’re trying to enslave the world. And by the way, guess who the “barbarians” are.
