21st century bogeyman

To subjugate a country, you need to demonise its leaders and destroy its culture. The biggest bogeyman of the 20th century was Adolf Hitler who had the temerity to challenge the authority of the Structural Elite. We know how that ended. Germany was destroyed and made a vassal state. Adolf Hitler has become the epitome of evil - all based on propaganda, lies and the fabricated "holocaust".

Like Hitler did for Germany in the 1930s, Vladimir Putin is rolling back Structural Elite power in Russia. When the Soviet Union fell, Boris Yeltsin was put in place as president by the Structural Elite and proceeded to give away Russia's assets to banksters and Jewish oligarchs, as the country and its people slid into decay. However, Yeltsin's parting gift to Russia was Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin who has reversed the tide of decay. The parallels with Hitler's Germany are uncanny - staging of the Olympics, rebuilding of infrastructure and industry and most of all, the reassertion of Russian pride.

By all accounts, Putin is not the monster that Western media are wont to portray. The elevated cattle follow the Structural Elite script but Russia is not the aggressor; in our inverted world, the "victims" are the aggressors. Those who've worked with Putin corroborate the picture painted in the documentary above.

Is Putin incorruptible? U.S. insider's view of the Russian president's character and his country's transformation by Sharon Tennison
As the Ukraine situation has worsened, unconscionable misinformation and hype is being poured on Russia and Vladimir Putin. 
Journalists and pundits must scour the Internet and thesauruses to come up with fiendish new epithets to describe both.
Wherever I make presentations across America, the first question ominously asked during Q&A is always, "What about Putin?" 

We know that Putin was not the aggressor in Ukraine (or Crimea which voted to join the Russian Federation). We also know that US/UK/NATO/Israel are the primary global aggressors. So before we jump on the anti-Putin bandwagon, perhaps we need to examine the evidence and think a bit harder.

No leader or hierarchy will save us from our predicament but some are potential allies in limiting the power of the Structural Elite whose agenda is total subjugation of humanity. Putin is no bogeyman and if every country was run by a Putin, we would be in a lot better shape than we are ruled by criminal bankers.

Reaching a shared understanding of what is really going on is our first step to freedom.

Water to life

We are under constant attack from toxins in the atmosphere, the food chain and our water (bottled and tap water). Detoxification regimes abound but we need to look no further than pure water to start the process.

Our technological age encourages us to abandon what is natural and based on the wisdom of millennia and multiple civilisations - we'd be foolish to ignore ancient wisdom.

Recognized for his groundbreaking work on the origins of Western philosophy, Peter Kingsley has helped shed light on the sacred roots of Ancient Greek culture and civilization. Here we explore his life-long relationship with two great figures of antiquity, Parmenides and Empedocles, who he explains were not merely philosophical intellectuals but ecstatic mystics and poets whose message holds great significance for the world today.

Studying the past shows us where we went wrong to arrive at our dystopian present.

Why Economics Needs Repentance, Not Reformation by COLIN MCKAY
The only way for economists to earn public faith in their profession, is to repent, and cease from practicing cabalists’ magic.

The causes of our current woes are not complicated. They arise from a system of control because we've abdicated responsibility for ourselves and each other. Hierarchy, theft of the commons and usury underpin our current political economy and, in combination, these three flaws drive abuse, oppression and the destruction of life. This understanding is not rocket science, nor is it new but stems from deep rooted human history.

Fundamentally, we are social beings whose future relies on each other and human relationships are the most important foundations on which to build. The three flaws are designed to destroy and distort those relationships. Relationships are monetised within a framework of asymmetric power in which the few dominate. But they can only do so as long as we believe in their abusive, oppressive and destructive system. We now have a choice: to succumb to slavery or to live.

Here's to awakening in 2018 to a new realisation... none of the pain and suffering in the world is inevitable; it is caused by our belief in authority and this pernicious system.

"Live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about his religion. Respect others in their views and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.

Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, or even a stranger, if in a lonely place. Show respect to all people, but grovel to none. When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.

Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision. When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home." by Tecumseh (1768-1813) Shawnee Chief

Fake Protocols?

Often, when the Protocols of Zion are mentioned, there is a prompt reaction: "they're fake". However, like so much documentary evidence of the plans to subjugate humans, the unfolding of history and current trajectory of the political economy betray their veracity.

Protocols 16-24: Events Confirm their Authenticity by Henry Makow
There is a direct link between the plans outlined over a 100 years ago in the Protocols of Zion and the destruction of higher learning and religion in the West today.

The destruction of nation states and European culture was documented in the Coudenhove-Kalergi plan and reiterated by some of the elevated cattle.

The Protocols aren't any protection for Jews because, as has often been highlighted in Daily Pickings, Jews are victims of other Jews or, more accurately, cuckoos in the Jewish nest.

As long as we shy away from discussing these issues for fear of "frightening the horses", we are a binding our shackles ever tighter and guaranteeing our subjugation. It takes patience to break down resistance to facing up to reality but there is plenty of documentary evidence to cite. Two books which start to reveal the truth of Jewish power in the 20th century are essential reading if we want to know who rules, how and why?

Under the Sign of Scorpion by Juri Lina

Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil by Gerard Menuhin

The culture of critique

Our conflation, over the "Holocaust", Israel and Jewish power, renders us incapable of sober, impartial assessment of Jewish power. Daily Pickings has referred to how academia was captured by the "robber barons" a century ago; since then, Jewish representation in the institutions of the levers of power has expanded to become the dominant influence in society which eclipses and excludes all other voices.

The Culture of Critique (hereafter, CofC) was originally published in 1998 by Praeger Publishers, an imprint of Greenwood Publishing Group, Inc. The thesis of the book is a difficult one indeed—difficult not only because it is difficult to establish, but also because it challenges many fundamental assumptions about our contemporary intellectual and political existence.
CofC describes how Jewish intellectuals initiated and advanced a number of important intellectual and political movements during the 20th century. I argue that these movements are attempts to alter Western societies in a manner that would neutralize or end anti-Semitism and enhance the prospects for Jewish group continuity either in an overt or in a semi-cryptic manner. Several of these Jewish movements (e.g., the shift in immigration policy favoring non-European peoples) have attempted to weaken the power of their perceived competitors— the European peoples who early in the 20th century had assumed a dominant position not only in their traditional homelands in Europe, but also in the United States, Canada, and Australia. At a theoretical level, these movements are viewed as the outcome of conflicts of interest between Jews and non-Jews in the construction of culture and in various public policy issues. Ultimately, these movements are viewed as the expression of a group evolutionary strategy by Jews in their competition for social, political and cultural dominance with nonJews.

Jewish power is the safety blanket for the Rothschilds to dampen open debate on issues and events by suppressing dissident voices through academia, media and the law, all of which are dominated by Jews.

The Death of Academic Freedom: Prof James Tracy Denied First Amendment Rights by Federal Court by Vivian Lee
Global Research brings to the attention of its readers this review article pertaining to the West Palm Beach court decision regarding Prof. James Tracy’s dismissal from Florida Atlantic University (FAU). Whilst opinions may diverge regarding the events at Sandy Hook, we nonetheless believe that First Amendment Rights should prevail with a view to preserving academic freedom.

Jewish power is a double-edged sword and the longer discussion of its importance is suppressed, the greater the potential blowback when people's perceptions of reality shift and Jewish power crumbles. For the sake of Jews and the rest of us, we need to talk.
