…Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time.
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle.
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
– Shakespeare, William (1606). “Macbeth”, Act 5, scene 5
In that passage of Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”, the protagonist turned antagonist swallows hopelessness and nihilism like an opiate. He does so for this reason: If life is meaningless, then so, too, are regret and guilt. It’s also been said that quote represented Shakespeare’s own view of theater – as all the drama was meant to invoke emotional responses from the audience after a suspension of disbelief had occurred.
In so many ways does the inevitable unfurl like a divine comedy; or a Shakespearean tragedy. Even now as the tin-foil hat-wearing conspiracy theorists and fake news propagandists in the Mainstream Media, along with their comrades in The Resistance, tear at their clothing and gnash their teeth in the wake of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s gigantic nothing-burger.
How sweet are the screams of those now wearing sackcloth and ashes. Well, not really, because sackcloth and ashes would signify remorse, if not repentance. Of course, there will be none of that from the shameless liars. Never. Not in this lifetime.
At least Macbeth expressed some initial sorrow over his foul deeds before doubling down on the lies in his head; lies that were planted there by apparitions hovering above the bubbling cauldron of witches.
Some of us will never learn.
Time is the fire by which we burn.
Obviously, intelligent folks have a depth of understanding on varied topics and, therefore, an easier time “connecting the dots”. Which brings to mind a quote from the 1979 “Superman” movie when Lex Luther, played by the actor Gene Hackman, said this:
Some people can read [Tolstoy’s] ‘War and Peace’ and come away thinking it’s a simple adventure story. Others can read the ingredients on a chewing gum wrapper and unlock the secrets of the universe.
Indeed. Common sense infused and fair-minded adults in the audience can “read between the lines” and see “the big picture”. But immature and nonsensical children? Not even close. And so it is with the red-pilled and blue-pilled citizens in the modern matrix:
The people perish for lack of knowledge.
Same as they always have.
By and large, the Mainstream Corporate Media is to blame for fooling some of the public all of the time, but it wouldn’t be so easy if the dimwitted and ambitious weren’t so gullible. In fact, that’s why propaganda works so effectively: The People of the Lie WANT to believe what they wish were true. It’s like selling free hot air to Eskimos in the dead of winter, Kool-Aid to toddlers, or stolen sovereignty to Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
Consider how easy it would have been for Mueller to frame Trump in his report and have him convicted in the court of public opinion. Can you imagine the media and political firestorm which would have taken place if that had happened? But, instead, Mueller ended the investigation on collusion while claiming Trump was not exonerated on obstruction. Of course that language was purposely planted, and for nefarious reasons, because it will allow the Dummycrats the opening they need to continue investigating Trump; just as the Republicans in the U.S. Senate now are pretending to get serious on FISA Abuse.
The show goes on. Are you entertained? Well, are you?
It seemed the Russiaphobic conspiracy theorists felt betrayed by Mueller for not delivering the injustice they desired and demanded. For over two years the media, like Macbeth’s witches, conjured Mueller’s apparitions as imaginary Pied Pipers leading the foolish snowflakes into delusions of disappointment. And the same people who were dumbfounded on November 8, 2016 were stunned again when the proverbial rug was, once more, pulled out from beneath them. They believed Trump won the presidency because of Russian interference. They wanted to believe that. They needed to believe it because, in so doing, they could avoid looking inward.
But now they know there was no conspiracy. Why no conspiracy they wonder? Why no charges of obstruction of justice? It’s because Trump’s recently appointed Attorney General Bob Barr colluded with the President! That’s the ticket! The fix was in all along.
Now even Former FBI Director James Comey is “confused” and “can’t quite understand what’s going on”. Obviously, one of the principal agents of the bogus Russia probe currently feels misled by the magicians who played him like a puppet. In literature’s “Tragic Hero Stages” this is called the “Anagnorisis” (Greek: “recognition”), which is a stunning discovery that transitions the misguided from ignorance to knowledge. Or, in this case, Comey’s “A Higher Loyalty” was, after all, a fool’s errand.
Could these people be any more pathetic?
Ironically, yes. Just as Trump was NOT exonerated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Chicago hate-crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett received a unilateral pardon on Tuesday March 26, 2019 by Cook County States Attorney Kimberly Foxx, who had recused herself from the case last month due to “potential questions of impartiality”.
If a constitutionally elected president can be investigated for over two years and found to have committed no crimes, yet not be exonerated, as a second-rate TV actor who signed a check to two Nigerian brothers in order to fake a hate crime has 16 felony counts arbitrarily dismissed and the case records sealed – then the rule of law is dead in America. Do what thou wilt has become the new norm.
Fortunately, for those in media, the Smollett travesty was a smooth narrative channel-change on short order which transitioned Mueller’s nothing-burger to the back burner, so to speak.
Signs of desperation? Channel flipping distractions? Or a reality stage play revealing the purposeful and systematic destruction of American institutions on live television?
Think about how much has unraveled since the election of Donald Trump. To be fair, it all started coming apart long before Trump was elected, but since November 2016 the clowns have gone full retard. Fake News and Russiagate have destroyed the media, as Spygate and FISA Abuse have demolished faith in America’s Shakespearean three witches: The intelligence community, Department of Justice, and FBI.
The U.S. House currently resembles the bar scene from Star Wars even as they double-down on Trump’s “lack of exoneration” from Mueller – the one guy who could have shut down his illicit investigation much earlier, but didn’t. Who stacked his team with what Trump had called “13 angry Democrats” engaged in a “rigged witch hunt”. Who, very likely, used the investigation as the means to cover up the previous crimes of Obama and Hillary Clinton – and then had the hubris to falsely claim his investigation did “not exonerate” Trump from accusations of obstruction of justice. And this “lack of exoneration” language by Mueller has now, in turn, allowed Trump’s opponents the foothold they need to transition the drama into more theatrics.
Think about that.
Now think about this: Trump recently said Mueller was “honorable”.
Just as 911 and WMD’s simultaneously destabilized the nations via war and mass migration while establishing the surveillance grid worldwide – so, too, did Russiagate accomplish its mission. Trump is a mirage and the media’s manipulation of the moods of mindless and malleable minions has proven completely manageable. These apparitions are doom porn projected on prison walls:
Again, the stories we tell ourselves are “tempered by circumstance”, which is just another way of saying they are “refined by reality”. In three-dimensions are the stories cast in fires of actual experience; where falsehoods are flamed away and truth gets forged like swords in a furnace.
If time and circumstance affects the stories we tell ourselves, even unto the formation of our very identities – then so, too, are heroes and villains classified in the same manner. During periods of prosperity or hardship these polemic constructs form our internal dialogues to varying degrees, before bending, or breaking, by reality’s bite.
Will Trump, who first said he would prosecute Hillary Clinton BEFORE his election, and AFTER the election said the Clinton’s were “good people” now get to the bottom of FISA abuse, and Spygate? Will he allow for the release of the FISA applications, FBI 302 forms, and 1023 counterintelligence documentation that still remain classified?
Even if Hillary Clinton is locked up for her crimes at some point, Trump pardons Mueller’s victims, Huber the Hidden Prosecutor indicts all of Spygate’s snakes, and Q-anon his bad self circles the Pentagon gates on a white horse with sword raised high – it won’t matter.
This is because, at the very least, most Americans won’t know and won’t care.
Time is the fire by which we burn.
Even if Trump was real, quite honestly, he would need to be the reincarnation of Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, and Ulysses S. Grant, figuratively speaking, to drain the modern swamp.
Stated another way: If Trump were to prevent America from splitting in two, he would need to be like Malcolm in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” physically wresting his nation from the iron grip of tyranny.
Is anyone reading this now even remotely holding on to such illusions?
If Trump were real, the dark powers still control the money, the media, the tech grid, and the war machine. But now, it is Trump who owns the optics of the economy in the minds of the masses. He did this on his own accord when he changed gears from his campaign “economic bubble” positioning to now bowing on the stage and taking credit for the stock market highs; all while exploding the deficits and perfectly lining up his tax cuts and trade wars to (optically) pick up the Fed’s tab.
In all truth, if Trump were real, he would have unsealed all of the FISA documentation prior to the midterms and the swamp would have been more than halfway drained by now. He would have done so on behalf of the American public; especially for those who voted for him.
But that didn’t happen, did it? Not even close. Instead, all we get is reality TV and tweets.
Therefore, the possibility remains that everything happening now, including the recent New Zealand mass murder of Muslims, is a giant mindf*ck by the globalists designed to accelerate outcomes. It is a scripted manifesto paired to video and all telegraphed to accelerate specific reactions; or chain reactions, if you will, where everyone across the political, ideological, and theological spectrums can play their parts right on cue.
Consider the following chain of events:
Earlier this month, the senior Republican Senator from South Carolina, Lindsay Graham, told CNN that he believed Republicans and Democrats could “come together” on gun control during a forthcoming March 26, 2019 senate hearing on “extreme risk protection” or “red flag” gun laws. This proposed legislation has the full support of Democratic Senators Richard Blumenthal and Dianne Feinstein and would allow just one of your neighbors to claim to see something before saying something that would allow law enforcement to seize all of your guns with no legal hearing whatsoever.
On March 14, 2019 Lindsay Graham called for the appointment of a new Special Counsel to:
Investigate alleged misconduct around the handling of the Clinton email investigation.
Investigate the abuse of the FISA warrant process against Mr. Carter Page.
… for someone to look at the other side of the political coin.
On Tuesday March 19, 2019 Lindsey Graham announced: “that the Senate Judiciary Committee [was] scheduled to begin conducting hearings… Tuesday, March 26, on Senate Bill 7, the Extreme Risk Protection Order and Violence Prevention Act of 2019—, otherwise known as the national ‘red flag’ gun confiscation bill”:
The bill was introduced in the Senate by Marco Rubio (R-FL). If this gun confiscation bill passes the U.S. Senate, it will most certainly pass the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives, and President Donald Trump absolutely WILL sign it into law.
On March 24, 2019 Graham hinted at further questioning of former FBI Director James Comey in light of Special Counsel Mueller’s findings.
And, finally, yesterday, at the time of this writing, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, addressed the 2nd Amendment during the Senate Bill 7 hearing (on Tuesday March 26, 2019) and said: “every right has limits”.
Could Trump, Russiagate, Spygate, FISA Abuse, and the majority of daily headlines we see simply be distractions; or, rather, apparitions?
Because, within the matrix, it appears technology has morphed into power: The power to surveil, the power to control, the power to steal, and even the power to generate illusions in the minds of the masses; movies in the mind, or a stage-show as it were; but with genuine consequences.
Sadly, even the Discerners of Reality in the audience, with an honest comprehension of current events, can’t fix stupid. Nor can they stall the inevitable. At least not until a sizable percentage of the Idiocracy dies first.
Because it’s unstoppable, like spring rains, the summer’s heat, falling leaves, and winter’s chill.
It’s just time. That’s all.

do you believe that it is all a big conspiracy or are you just asking the question,or are just writing for entertainment?
As I’ve stated before, I write to clear my mind, speculate, and for the discussion here and on other blogs. For whatever reason, it seems most of my readers on this blog prefer to communicate via e-mail or the Contact Page here (in lieu of the comment section) -so I write for their input and feedback as well.
To answer your question I believe in the big conspiracy. Which is, in fact, a pretty low threshold since Merriam-Webster defines ”conspire” as:

I swear I had something really interesting to say, but by the time I retrieved my password from this WordPress account and got settled down with time to think, I am thinking “interesting” was hyperbole.
Why is it I am seeing so many references to that Shakespeare guy these days?
Is there some sort of divine comedy afoot?
AIPAC is real .
he is nothing but Israelis bitch cooked kosher.
ANN COULTER for the first real MAGA potus!
PS:Things are more like “The Wizard of OZ” these days not Shakespearian .
we got flying monkeys militarized for the phycos running the scams,and buckets of water on the evil bitches won’t work or clean up their filthy asses.
is that Sorry the SORROS behind the curtain or just old bennie the rat?
that kosure cooking sure smells like SHIT!
How biblical to have such a brilliant messenger with such an unobtrusive name. As a behavioral profiler I found it rather telling that the New Zealand video terrorist proclaimed “Let’s get this thing started,” as if he was about to do something under orders. And I think he’s not the first to have proclaimed such and introductory comment.
And you my friend are growing exponentially.
Your penpal and mentee,
