The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world.
– Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
My blog was started four years ago this month. Inspired by the courage of other writers out here on the still-free internet, I thought I’d add my two cents, as it were; an American Nobody speaking truth to power. Indeed, in September 2016, I fully expected Hillary Clinton to win the presidency in a matter of weeks.
During the two months immediately preceding November 8, 2016: I wrote on the Trojan Horse aspect of political correctness, immigration, the giant sucking sound of manufacturing jobs lost to Mexico, mainstream media obfuscation, the rise of the technocracy, George Soros, Obama, Hillary, Trump, the Illuminati, the rigged-game of American politics, Agenda 21, Cloward-Piven, Fractional Reserve Banking, and encroaching tyranny.
My penultimate article prior to the 2016 election was entitled “Winners Who Won the Wind”, whereupon the following was written:
To those who are encouraged regarding recent headlines of the FBI reopening the case again Hillary a few weeks before the election, keep in mind even this could be a play by the globalists to orchestrate a Trump win. There are some who claim the best play by the financial elite would be to allow the nationalist movements behind both Trump and Brexit to have their day in the sun. This would allow the establishment to simply collapse the system in any number of ways and thus blame the ensuing wreckage on nationalist naiveté and the foolish dreams of protectionism.
With a Hillary win it will be a fast track to war, financial armageddon and third world status. With a Trump win, the powerful moneymen can simply change the order to: financial armageddon, war and then, third world status. The names may change but the end results will be the same. Either way, the winners have won.
In my last piece before the 2016 Election, entitled “Monsters Under the Bed. Chaos in Your Head.”, these words were typed at the end:
Regardless of the outcome of the election, the supporters of whoever loses will most likely NOT go quietly into that good night. Moreover, amid ongoing government investigations involving those holding the highest governmental offices in the land; a debt-filled financial balloon just about ready to burst; a shamefully biased, lapdog national media reporting whatever their corporate masters tell them to say; and the real possibility of war with Russia as our divided republic teeters upon the precipice of a second American civil war:
Is the election chaos almost over? Or is it all just beginning?
Still, even knowing what I thought I knew then, I was thrilled when Trump won; if only for some extra time. And, immediately in the aftermath of Trump’s surprise victory, I wrote a series of three articles comparing our current circumstances to Charles Dickens’ novel, “Tale of Two Cities”, the French Revolution, the best of times, and the worst of times. It was in the third installment of that series, dated November 17, 2016, whereby America’s color revolution was referenced… long before it was cool.
So, even understanding what I think I now know, I was quite surprised to have been inspired by the recent Republican convention. It brought to mind the nostalgia of America as founded: A nation of ideas, principles, and values over petty political positioning and gamesmanship.
The speakers, many of them common folk, expressed their genuine appreciation for President Trump standing in the breach of making America great again or complete oblivion. I found myself wondering if Trump actually is the nation’s last best hope.
But, then, the realist within me speculated if Trump was, instead, hired by the elite… and playing a role prepared for him in advance while generating enthusiasm in the same ways as seen in professional wrestling.
For years now, primarily pursuant to the 2018 Midterm Elections, I’ve written regarding the “episodes” unfolding in the daily headlines as having a sort of movie-of-the-week, reality-TV-show vibe.
I want to believe. But I do wonder if The Puppet Masters don’t have the game rigged for 2020:
– if the most enfeebled presidential candidate in U.S. history wins, then Marxist hell will begin immediately under the Kamala Harris Administration with Joe Biden…
– but if Trump wins, the Marxist hell will still come… and right on schedule.
Can democracy save the nation at this point? Or has America become mostly a television show?
There is no denying the tyranny is accelerating – even under Trump. And, perhaps unsurprisingly, much of the authoritarian enforcement is now administered by our fellow plebeians. It’s been fascinating to see COVID politicized as a left-right issue.
Like the climate-change deception, the bogus science behind COVID has been embraced by The Borg with the same sort of religious fervor. Those promoting the benefits of masks cite science as justification for the new totalitarianism; and those questioning any healthcare despotism are scorned and vilified in the same fashion as “climate deniers”. Yet, when the actual science behind wearing masks is explained, the disciples of COVID will shut down faster than a downtown business during a Black Lives Matter® protest.
It appears political hysteria is a vaccine against logic and reason.
Accordingly, at the behest of elite globalist Billionaires, the medical mafia (i.e. The CDC & WHO) has sustained the COVID terror through the bright days of summer. And this does not bode well for the forthcoming winter, as flu season returns. To be sure, the COVID-mania will shift into high gear and the only real antidote for people will be the “off” button on their electrical devices. But, of course, these will remain on and fully powered; with lies shining through.
America’s ideological divide has always existed; but, in our time, the divisions have finally reached critical mass. Even professional sports have been subsumed by leftist politics. I’ve often privately speculated on the pressure-release-valve effect of athletics on American culture. Perhaps we would have balkanized long ago if not for sports. Attend any high-school, college, or professional football game and it’s like a scene from the movie Braveheart – complete with face-paint, flags and songs.
Now, it seems COVID has turned up the heat and, concurrently, sealed our societal release mechanisms. New battle lines have been drawn. The fuses have been lit. The countdown has begun.
Is it possible the election of Donald Trump caught the military-industrial complex by surprise? Keep in mind it’s the same cabal that took complete control after the JFK assassination and had five decades to consolidate its power with zero obstructions. The same cabal that conjured the technological chains by which we’re now enslaved. The same cabal that orchestrated 911 in order to facilitate the rise of the surveillance state.
Order out of chaos.
At 8:46 AM on September 11, 2001, American Airlines Flight 11 hit the north tower of New York City’s World Trade Center. This marked the beginning of the War on Terror®. And, paradoxically, 8:46 became a “potent symbol” in the year 2020 as well. It’s because 8 minutes and 46 seconds was reported to have been the amount of time a Minneapolis police officer’s white knee pressed down upon a black man’s neck.
Two separate time stamps, with numbers adding up to 18 and separated by 18 years’, 8 months’ time. The former gave birth to a reunified nation and the surveillance state. The latter severed American society in two with a certain finality, while setting more large U.S. cities aflame.
What if the titans of American industry like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Jack Dorsey, and Donald Trump were all front men for the surveillance state? It is possible these men, and others, are paid actors and the entire show is stagecraft on a grand scale, administrated by real technocrats via intelligence agency spooks.
It might explain why the 2020 election resembles the plotline of a Marvel comic-book based movie; a diversionary side-show as the actual revolution commences undeterred. And what if Q-anon was an intelligence operation designed to deceive patriotic Americans while drawing out the digital footprint of those opposing the New World Order?
Hope for the best and plan for the worst, I say. Same as it ever was.
Tyrants have come and gone through the ages and, yet, the lust for power will never die.
Certainly, there is an ancient inevitability to the changing of seasons and one need only to read the Bible’s Book of Ecclesiastes to appreciate all of what happens under the sun.
A sense of fatalism can take two forms, resignation or acceptance, and these remain in the eyes of the beholder. In a previous article entitled, “It is What It Is”, I wrote the following:
An honest person sees a situation and knows what can be done and what can’t be done. Realists do what they can while acknowledging the outcome is beyond their control. Having the right scale of ourselves helps us to understand where we end and where the universe begins.
…Like a flower, a nation was planted onto the fertile ground. It grew and blossomed under the midday sun but now wilts and dies. The seasons come and go. The sun rises and sets. We are born, we flourish and fade. Everything turns.
It is what is.
For obvious reasons, I’m reminded of a quote in the 2007 movie “No Country for Old Men“. It was one of those rare films that was quite close to being as good as the book. Anyway, there was a scene where a Texas sheriff (played by Tommy Lee Jones) sought the counsel of an older mentor by the name of Ellis (played by Barry Corbin) who said:
Whatcha’ got ain’t nothin’ new. This country’s hard on people, you can’t stop what’s coming, it ain’t all waiting on you. That’s vanity.
I am also reminded of another quote. It was one a fellow blogger, Hardscrabble Farmer, wrote in a comment on a long-ago thread. He said it was paraphrased from a book and I forgot the title. It was this:
History appears to be a raging, bloody river, choked by the bodies of innocents and tyrants alike, but most of it is lived high upon its banks, where people tend gardens, raise their children and whisper to one another in the darkness.
Sadly, the tyrants today have developed the technological means by which to see and hear in the dark. They are intoxicated by power and have at their fingertips wizardry never realized before in all of world history.
Exactly how future events will transpire remains to be seen but, irrespective of whatever happens, may the flame in your spirits ever remain. May you never take part in the lie – even as your bodies wither in time’s fire.
Over the last several months, 2020 vision has made the following very clear: literal face-coverings have been donned as allegorical masks were ripped away. Just as COVID is not about health, Marxism is not about sharing resources. Both were, instead, contrived to consolidate power and control wealth. The financial elite hunger for global socialism. And, sadly, many Americans are deceived as they pursue earthly utopia with religious fervor.
In the end, however, those who have obtained power through deception will burn. All they desire will turn to ash. They were deceived even as they went out to deceive. They will inherit the wind.

While truth lies dead in our streets, you speak truth to willing and receptive minds. Thank you, sir.
Thank you, Herb.
