The system is rigged,

and 'they' do not care what you think...









Part 1

May 31, 2021




"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society.


Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country...


We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.


This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society...


In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses.


It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind."

Edward Bernays

Propaganda - 1928


"For the first time in its history, Western Civilization is in danger of being destroyed internally by a corrupt, criminal ruling cabal which is centered around the Rockefeller interests, which include elements from the Morgan, Brown, Rothschild, Du Pont, Harriman, Kuhn-Loeb, and other groupings as well.


This junta took control of the political, financial, and cultural life of America in the first two decades of the twentieth century."

Carroll Quigley

Tragedy & Hope - 1966

It has been somewhat baffling to me why the masses have been unable or unwilling to acknowledge the existence of a ruling cabal/invisible government who are the true ruling power in our world.


Any impartial assessment of facts, recognition of historical events confirming the observations of Bernays and Quigley, and knowledge of human nature, should unequivocally convince a critical thinking individual what they are told to believe by politicians, media and financiers is entirely false.

For decades, calling anyone who questioned the approved and sanctioned narrative about how our "democracy" supposedly operates has been called a conspiracy theorist.


Of course, this term gained widespread use after the CIA used the term about anyone questioning the JFK assassination.


CIA Director William Casey could not have been any clearer about the true nature of our government than his statement in 1981.

"We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false."

Your government and the financial interests who operate the puppet strings of their politician, media and central banker puppets do constitute a malevolent Deep State, designed to enrich themselves, while subjugating, controlling, and manipulating the masses.


If anyone was in doubt about this fact, what has transpired in the last fifteen months should have convinced them of their error.


The criminal ruling cabal have virtually perfected Bernays' propaganda techniques through collusion with Big Tech and the traitorous surveillance state apparatus.

They have consciously and intelligently manipulated the ignorant masses regarding,

a non-lethal - to healthy people under 80 years old - annual flu, in order to test how far they could push their authoritarian un-Constitutional masking and lockdown measures upon us before we pushed back...

To their delight and astonishment, the vast majority of Americans proved to be cowardly, easily manipulated, fearful, and begging to be enslaved by their superiors.


It has truly been a depressing display of spinelessness, supplication, and subservience.

The lack of questioning authority, absence of critical thinking skills, inability to understand real risk, relinquishing liberties, and freedoms for presumed safety, and believing self-proclaimed medical "experts" has been a disgraceful exhibition of weakness, self-enslavement, and voluntary confinement at the behest of tyrannical politicians.


You have to be seriously delusional or willfully ignorant to not acknowledge the coordinated effort by government apparatchiks, over-hype this Wuhan bio-lab virus as a means to implement their Great Reset master plan.



Their overwhelming success in pulling the wires controlling the public mind during this scamdemic have convinced them of their invincibility.


Their control over all levers of our society makes it virtually impossible to change the course of our country and future history by operating within the system.


When the system is entirely corrupted and dominated by a criminal cabal, there are no systematic solutions which will change the current paradigm.

William Casey's dream of a successful disinformation campaign has been achieved, as virtually everything Americans believed over the last fifteen months has been false.


At this point, no one operating within the government, mainstream media, financial industry, military industrial complex, or medical industrial complex can be trusted to tell you the truth.


Discerning the truth of events, supposed facts, and those pretending to act in your best interests have never been more difficult.

I stopped watching the mainstream media news networks years ago and cancelled newspaper subscriptions before that. Over the last year, the relentless Covid propaganda being shoveled by my local news stations forced me to abandon them.


Most of the websites which allowed divergent opinions have sold out for the almighty buck.


Big Tech tyrants and the Wall Street cabal see it as their job to suppress the truth and censor those who dare question the ruling party sanctioned narrative by cutting off access to advertising revenue and followers.

Even the few larger sites who remain committed to revealing the truth have been forced by Big Brother 'Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Twitter' to censor commentary and not go too far off the reservation regarding who is running the show and calling the shots.


The fear of seeing your income obliterated can be a very motivating force in convincing you to do as you are told.


As Orwell predicted,

The Party (aka as Deep State, ruling criminal cabal, invisible government) is always right...


I have experienced de-platforming, censorship demonetization, and denial of service attacks for attempting to tell the truth and allowing freedom of speech within the comment stream of my website.


Back in 2008, after Seeking Alpha and Financial Sense sold out to Wall Street, they began censoring, editing, and suppressing my articles, which told the truth about Wall Street criminality and Washington corruption.


Ultimately, they banned me from posting articles, prompting me to create a site where I controlled the content.

I did it on the cheap, with low-cost server companies.


Trying to make a buck proved challenging as my site was black balled by Google Adsense, Amazon, Yahoo, Lockerdome, and several other ad companies who did not believe in my right to publish articles not toeing the company line...

A massive denial of service attack mysteriously brought the site down for a week, shortly after writing a scathing article about Google.



Fellow freedom of speech advocate Mike Krieger (Liberty Blitzkrieg) saved the site by putting me in touch with his freedom of speech believing IT guru, who fought off the attack and placed my site on his secure server.


Through the generosity of dedicated members of my community and a few lower tier advertisers, the site continues to be a voice in the wilderness.


My non-reliance on Twitter, Youtube, or Facebook is now a blessing, as they have zero impact on the success or failure of my site.

Still, in this cancel culture environment, there is constant danger of Tech retribution and/or left-wing loons attempting to destroy my life for telling the truth and pulling back the curtain on the traitorous scum destroying our country.


They have tried to get me fired from my job and will surely try again.

Censorship is the hallmark of authoritarian regimes, so you judge what we are experiencing at this point in history.

My belief there are no solutions is based on what I have observed since I first started writing about economy, financial markets, politicians, media, and society as a whole in 2008.

I was outraged by federal spending of $3 trillion and budget deficits exceeding $500 billion in 2008.


I thought ratcheting spending over $3.5 trillion and running deficits exceeding $1 trillion would destroy the economy during Obama's reign of error.

Wrong again...


Spending swelled to over $4 trillion, and deficits approached $1 trillion again during the Trump administration, culminating in FY20 'pandemic' spending of $6.5 trillion and a deficit of $3.1 trillion.


It looks like FY21 will finish with spending in the $5.8 trillion range and a deficit in the range of $2.5 trillion.


These numbers would have seemed unfathomable in 2008 and would have provoked rage among any reasonable person.


Instead, our illegitimate dementia racked empty vessel of a president, when he is not ogling fourteen-year-old girls in the audience, is proposing a budget of $6 trillion of expenditures, while government revenues are stuck in the $3.5 trillion range.


And no one blinks an eye. Interest rates decline. The stock market goes up. All is well in this fantasy land of delusion.

The powers that be are supremely confident they can run the national debt as high as they choose, with no adverse consequences to themselves or the long-term stability of the country.


In fact, QE (Quantitative Easing) to infinity to fund the multi-trillion-dollar deficits has greatly benefited and will continue to benefit the criminal billionaire cabal reaping enormous profits from this scheme, while the plebs are left with stimmy crumbs, declining real wages, and raging inflation in food, energy, rent, home prices and just about everything they need to live.

How can anyone believe there are reasonable methods of solving the problems of this country (and the rest of the world) through democratic means, when the entire system is captured, corrupt, and concealed from visibility by a criminal cabal of sociopathic billionaires and their highly compensated lackeys?

The Deep State, or whatever you want to call the ruling oligarchy controlling the levers of society, have been able to deflect responsibility for the current state of affairs by having their captured media mouthpieces deny their existence and classify those of us who call out their misdeeds as conspiracy theorists.

As this denial of reality loses credibility, and every conspiracy theory is proven to be true, these Deep State co-conspirators have stepped out of the shadows and showed their cards during this fake ''pandemic'' crisis.


I am not sure whether this change in tactics is an act of hubris or desperation...


"I have come to call this shadow government the Deep State…a hybrid association of key elements of government and parts of top-level finance and industry that is effectively able to govern the United States with only limited reference to the consent of the governed as normally expressed through elections"

Mike Lofgren



Part 2

June 01, 2021




In Part One above, I described the circumstances which make it impossible to change the system from within. The past year should put the final nail in that coffin.


Now on to what is in our control.

"Experts agree that it is only a matter of time before one of these epidemics becomes global - a 'pandemic' with potentially catastrophic consequences."

Center for Health Security - October 2019

The boldness and extremeness of their actions since the Fall of 2019 seem out of character with their usual shrouded machinations behind the scenes, where the public is ignorant of their actions.


Something broke within the debt saturated financial system and Powell was ordered to restart QE and start reducing interest rates to fend off disaster.


In a fascinating coincidence, Event 201, a 'pandemic' simulation, was conducted on October 18 in New York City, jointly run by,

  • The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security

  • World Economic Forum

  • Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

The four-year coup attempt by the Deep State against Trump was floundering, with their pathetic last gasp impeachment farce in January 2020.

The weaponization of the Chinese bio-weapon lab virus into a global 'pandemic' narrative accomplished numerous objectives for the Deep State.


It provided cover for the Federal Reserve to funnel trillions into the pockets of the criminal Wall Street cabal and their billionaire clientele. It provided the means for Democrat governors and mayors to use it as an excuse to allow mass mail-in voting in order to fraudulently steal the election.


Destroying the economy through unnecessary worthless lockdowns and blaming it on Trump gave the Democrats a further impetus to steal the election.

Convincing the entire nation masking and lockdowns stopped the spread (they did not) allowed the ruling class to exercise tyrannical authoritarian un-Constitutional mandates with little to no push back from the masses - giving them the confidence to push further.


Cases and deaths were plummeting before vaccines were rolled out in any quantity, but the media mouthpieces and lying politicians will credit the jab for decline.


Using propaganda fear, convincing the masses cowering in your basement was brave, using their captured media to lie about "being in this together" as our rulers flaunted their own lockdown dictates, creating social unrest based on the false narrative of systematic racism, forcing people to be scared and suspicious of each other, and pitting families and friends against each other based on falsehoods, has accomplished the mission of tearing the fabric of our society.


And now for the coup de grace:

forced vaccinations with an experimental untested DNA altering concoction for a virus with a 99.8% survival rate...

The immune systems of all but the sickliest are sufficient to fight off this virus and cheap, effective, and safe treatments like ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine have been scientifically proven to successfully defeat this virus.


Watching scientists and doctors declare these treatments dangerous and ineffective, with Big Tech censoring anyone dissenting from this narrative, tells you how corrupted the medical and media industries have become.


Science is never settled.

"No scientist ever believes that he has the final answer or the ultimate truth on anything."

Carroll Quigley

Tragedy & Hope


Again, following the money leads to the most likely reason for this totalitarian insistence on everyone on earth be inoculated with a substance that has not been thoroughly tested or vetted over the long term.


Demanding mass vaccination as the only way life can return to normal has generated tens of billions in profits for Big Pharma and the medical industrial complex administering the jabs.


Scientists and medical professionals have been bought off to sway their research and opinions.

Do No Harm has been replaced by How Much Will You Pay Me to endorse your unproven drug.

They tell you the jab is free, but the government is funding this disgraceful exercise with your tax dollars.


Actually, the tax dollars of unborn generations (if they can be born after the sterility impact of the jabs surfaces in the future) are being used since we now borrow $4 trillion per year from them...


Bribing the ignorant masses with donuts, fast food, million-dollar lotteries, and vaccine passports guaranteeing access to the jabbed, certainly seems excessive for a relatively non-lethal illness...


They have accomplished convincing and coercing over 50% of adults into getting fully vaccinated, pushing hard for 70%.


Now they have turned their attention to children, who have a .003% chance of dying from Covid. Is this asinine idea only to generate profits for the ruling class or is there a darker motive for injecting a substance that has already killed thousands, creates blood clots, and is now causing heart problems in teenagers.

When you step back and try to comprehend the motives of Gates, Schwab, Fauci, and the criminal cabal running the show, with their,

  • "new normal"

  • "build back better"

  • "you will own nothing and be happy",

...slogans, you get the feeling this is all part of a much bigger agenda of control over the masses by an elite few, who believe they know what is 'best' for the planet regarding population size, resource usage, climate, and what they allow you to do and not do.

This is essentially a globalist attempt by the Davos crowd to create a new world, run by them, with you as a debt enslaved peasant, asking their permission to leave your house. Enrichment and control for them, meager existence, and enslavement for you.

The majority of Americans have been conditioned to believe their government and their leaders.


The oligarchs have nearly perfected the art of manipulation.


They have utilized propaganda, public school indoctrination, and pharmacological methods to create a dictatorship without tears, just as Aldous Huxley predicted many decades ago.


I do not think Huxley realized how much easier it would be for the masses to be subjugated and made to love their servitude with the advent of advanced technology, controlled by the powers that be.


Propaganda has been so much more effective in the manipulative hands of,

Zuckerberg, Dorsey, Bezos, Cook and Schmidt,

...with their stranglehold on social media, search engines, apps, and ability to censor what they do not want heard.


They have convinced the masses consumerism, materialism, personal satisfaction, wokeism, and various other "ism" tripe is what is important in this world.

The past year has borne out Huxley's painless concentration camp analogy, as we allowed ourselves to be locked down in our homes, while enjoying the fact our liberties and freedoms were taken away by government tyrants at the behest of billionaires pretending to be medical authorities and bought off medical "experts".


Any thoughts of rebelling against this tyranny had been conditioned out of the masses over the course of decades. This is why there are no macro-solutions to extract us from this concentration camp.

When I write articles detailing the subversion of our country by the Deep State/criminal cabal/ruling elite/oligarchy, a frequent comment has been,

"He is great at detailing the problems, how come he never offers any solutions?"

That comment always irritates me, because I have proposed solutions for over a decade, which never had a chance of being implemented or even considered.


I wrote an article one week after the election of Barack Obama in November 2008 - U.S. Economy: There Are No Problems, Only Solutions - which laid out dozens of solutions to what I considered the major problems facing our nation.

How naïve, uninformed, and foolish I was back then to think any of my proposals had a realistic chance of being adopted, when the ruling class had created the system and reaped the benefits from maintaining it just as it is.


Working to get Ron Paul elected in 2008 and 2012 was a futile effort.


Our political leaders are selected, not elected, as we have seen with Dementia Joe and his cackling vacuous VP. Hoping for the next election to go your way and your favorite candidate to win is nothing but false hope.

The system is rigged, and they do not care what you think.

We need to cast aside childish thoughts and deal with the harsh reality of being pawns in a game we do not control.


Quigley described the two-party farce five decades ago, and it has only gotten worse since.


"The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers.


Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.


Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years, if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies."

Carroll Quigley

Tragedy & Hope

The only solution is to not play in their game...


We only have micro-solutions which can be implemented on an individual level to reduce our risk and exposure to the criminal enterprise known as our government.


Depending on our financial resources, location, occupation, and personalities, we can all take actions which provide more freedom and distance from the corrupt system.


Some actions are easier than others, but every step in the right direction pushes us closer to a tipping point where good outweighs evil.


Make no mistake, we are at war with evil men with evil intentions, and they have no qualms about killing you or your family.


Individual actions will matter.

Reducing your debt increases your freedom.


Disconnecting from technological imprisonment keeps them from tracking you.


Reducing your taxable footprint, if possible, helps starve the beast.


Associating with like-minded people and dis-associating from untrustworthy establishment supporting stooges will clarify your life.


Raising your own food, and/or forming an alliance/friendship with local farmers will reduce your dependence on the toxic manufactured food industry.

Get healthy through exercise to limit your exposure to the medical industrial complex.


Move out of cities and stay away from crowds.


Own guns and be prepared to use them.


Become part of a community (online or in-person) where ideas are shared, and different viewpoints are heard. Prepare for energy and food shortages.


Currency debasement has entered a hyperbolic phase, so own some alternatives (gold, silver, land, crypto).

Get right with your family and decide who you can trust and depend upon.

  • Do not consume - save.

  • Do not obey - resist.

  • Do not believe - think...!

  • Do not trust - investigate...!

  • Do not conform - rebel.

  • Do not submit - withdraw your consent.



Based on the global experiment

conducted by the oligarchs over the last year,

it appears only a small fraction of the population

seem capable of independent thought

and a willingness to resist

entering the technological gulag

orchestrated by our gatekeepers.



There may be no implementable solutions on a grand scale, but there is a semblance of hope once their master plans self-destruct and crumble under the weight of hubris and ego driven ambition.


Cracks in the façade are already forming as they have turned on Gates, Fauci and Cuomo for glorifying themselves ahead of the agenda.

Quigley held out hope based upon human virtues which have fallen out of favor, but still exist among a portion of the population. I know they exist because the on-line community I call home has people with these qualities in abundance.


And a number of these friends will be getting together at a farm in New Hampshire on July 4 to celebrate our quaint belief we can help once again set brushfires of freedom in the minds of men and seize the moral high ground from the criminal cabal who occupy it now.


Our choices are few and road ahead difficult, but what choice do we have?


"The hope for the twentieth century rests on recognition that war and depression are man-made, and needless.


They can be avoided in the future by turning from the nineteenth-century characteristics just mentioned (materialism, selfishness, false values, hypocrisy, and secret vices) and going back to other characteristics that our Western Society has always regarded as virtues:

generosity, compassion, cooperation, rationality, and foresight, and finding an increased role in human life for love, spirituality, charity, and self-discipline."

Carroll Quigley
