Live not by lies

At one time we dared not even to whisper. Now we write and read samizdat, and sometimes when we gather in the smoking room at the Science Institute we complain frankly to……


Racist is a made-up word

“Racist” is a spell-word used to entrance our mind and control our behavior. It works by instilling fear and shame. Thus, the only way it can control us is if we give into fear and allow ourselves to be shamed. If fear is born of ignorance, then knowledge is the source of true power. Armed……


Endangered species

Native Europeans and the European diaspora around the globe have been marked for extinction. Our homelands are being overrun by an invading army. There is an all out war being waged against us, but most cannot see it. Many refuse to even acknowledge it.

Those who aim to destroy European people claim we have no culture…….


The Woodstock psyop

The tumultuous decade of decline, destruction and death that was the 1960s culminated in “three days of peace and music” in August 1969 with the Woodstock festival. 2019 marks 50 years since nearly half a million young people swarmed a dairy farm in upstate New York for three days of bad weather and even worse……


Q—the plan to scam the weary?

This article is a detailed critical analysis of claims made in the video titled Q—The Plan to Save the World. If you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend watching it (above) before reading any further. I was unaware of the Q phenomenon until recently, and……


5G: Everything connected

The impending roll out of 5G is eagerly anticipated by many, especially the corporations that stand to reap substantial profits from it. But governments and other entities that seek to strip us of all……


Digital retardation

Digital technologies—smartphones and other devices, social media, video games, internet search engines—are not “smart” nor are they benign. In many ways, they substantially impair human growth, development and intelligence. They are particularly harmful to the……


Hallow Evening

The modern man moves through time and space without knowing from whence he comes nor wither he goes. He has no direction. He is lost. He is like an arrow shot randomly into the thin air: sans……


Pepsi or Coke?

We’ll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

The change, it had to come
We knew it all……


The coming transformation

Human society is undergoing a transformation unlike anything our current iteration of civilization has seen in the past. Right now, we are on the outer rim of a brave new technological world. Soon, we will be inexorably immersed in a disturbing new paradigm. These massive changes are touted as “solutions” utilizing digital technologies……


Late, weird and weary

As a late bloomer, I often learn lessons too late to be of practical value. One of those is this: Japan is a weird place. It attracts weird people, and the longer you live in Japan, the……


The real fascists

Modern Western nations describe themselves as republics or democracies, but in fact they are all corporations. To paraphrase a quote attributed to Benito Mussolini, the merger of state and corporate power is fascism.

Fascism is a political theory advocating an authoritarian hierarchical government and the promotion of a capitalist economy subject to……


An American living in Japan

Melancholy observations of an expat.

I am an American and have lived in Tokyo for most of my adult life. I am married to a Japanese woman with whom I have one child…….


Proud to be American

In the above video, college students are asked if they are proud to be American. Most of their responses reflect the results of a Gallup poll released this week indicating that Americans are less patriotic than ever. As today is the Fourth of……


Why I am not a conservative

A conservative is someone who prefers traditional views and values. Conservatives resist change. The whole ideology of conservatism is based on the desire to preserve and maintain the existing system and traditional order.

Conservatives want to maintain the U.S. government. They want to maintain the financial system. They want to maintain capitalist……


From a chill to the deep freeze

Someday, in the not too distant future, this website may be considered illegal in the EU. So keep reading, before it is too late!

I started this site in 2013 after the Edward Snowden psyop—which is exactly what I think that whole affair was. For several years, I had suspected that our……


Not the right kind of immigrant for Ireland

Earlier this year, I visited Ireland for the first time to trace my family history. I spent nearly one month traveling around that amazing country, and after a lifetime of trying to find myself by looking in all the wrong places (read about that here), I had finally found what I have……


There is no such thing as a microaggression

An article on the BBC Capital website titled “The tiny ways prejudice seeps into the workplace” took its presumably majority white readers to task for the unforgivable crime of microaggressions, which it defines as “brief queries, comments or actions sprinkled throughout day-to-day life that make others—particularly those in marginalized groups—feel……


Guns or ignorance: Which is more dangerous?

The eagerness of millennials to give up their Constitutionally protected rights is evidence that they do not understand the purpose and intention of those rights. Our right to free speech, our right to bear arms and our right to be secure in our persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures……


Reflections on the importance of tribe

There are a few axiomatic truths that we dare not mention in 2018. All men are not created equal. Race is real, and the differences between races is more than skin deep. Racial differences, like differences in intelligence,……


Shitholegate

According to the U.S. corporate media and our so-called leaders, Vladimir Putin is the new Hitler. Russia is a dangerous, aggressive force to be reckoned with, one that is constantly meddling in and influencing elections in free and democratic countries throughout the world.

Politicians and the corporate media have also been pushing……


The supremacist plot to take over the world

The supremacists have hatched a dastardly plot to take over the world. And if you bother to listen to academia and the corporate media, there is only one group who considers themselves to be supreme: White people.

There are two core beliefs that one must hold to be bona fide a White……


This is not what America is supposed to be

I am proud to share Ryan Bundy’s opening statement to the court, delivered on November 15, 2017. This is a must read for all Americans!

Thanks to the jurors for being here. I told you a little about myself at voir dire, but I’d like to introduce myself a little more, and tell you……


The Mandalay country massacre

When attempting to make sense of the alleged “lone wolf” shooting in Las Vegas on October 2nd, it is important to consider the possibility that this was yet another hoax. Or perhaps a false flag. I have written about the difference between the two, as well as some reasons why it appears that……


#TakeAKnee

It appears #TakeAKnee is having the unintended effect of waking up more than a few White sportsball fans from their slumber/stupor. White America is finally realizing that many of the Black athletes they worship, Black men whose names are on the back of the overpriced jerseys they proudly wear in a display of……


The smart Panopticon

I started this website back in the summer of 2013 after the Edward Snowden psyop began. For the record, I do not consider Snowden to be a whistle-blower, nor a leaker of……


Bittersweet consolation

The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves. –Vladimir Lenin

If you can be convinced that there is no such thing as race, White culture or Western civilization, then you will never……


My thoughts on Charlottesville

If anyone out there was still laboring under the apprehension that the corporate media can be trusted, the news coverage of the “Unite the Right” (UTR) rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, is definitive proof that the corporate media……


A path to freedom

Does freedom still exist in our modern world? With every passing day, “civilization” is closing in on us like a prison door slowly slamming shut. More and more of our freedoms are being curtailed in the name……


The genius of George Romero

I was saddened to learn that George Romero passed away on July 16th. I was even sadder that he didn’t turn into a zombie and take a bite out of someone with his trademark……


Time for leisure

I can’t wait for the era of unprecedented leisure that is just around the corner. Some people worry about being replaced by a touchscreen kiosk or an algorithm, but I am actually looking forward to it.

You see, people smarter than us have already figured everything out. They are going to pay……


Generation X

I am a member of what is known as Generation X, a demographic designation defined by Douglas Coupland in his 1991 novel of the same name. Born roughly between 1965 and 1980, Gen Xers are the children of post-WWII Baby Boomers. Coupland characterized Gen Xers……


Japan: Reptilian colony?

Having lived in and among Japan and its quirky inhabitants for a couple of decades longer than is advisable for one’s mental health, I have come to the conclusion that if there are indeed reptilian shape-shifters hiding……


Parenting on a hostile planet

I’d like to say a few words about parenting, but before we get started, can you please tell me what pronouns you prefer and how you identify?

As for me, I identify as many things: a man, a husband and a father. And I go by the only pronouns appropriate for those……


Where have all the good times gone?

Music has a magical way of whisking us down memory lane to destinations all but lost to the ravages of time. Hearing a long forgotten song for the first time in years can at times be a nearly out-of-body experience, bringing back a flood of memories and feelings that go beyond the ability……


Gunning for the Old West?

The regressive Left’s attack on the Confederacy is just one battle in the war to destroy explicit Whiteness in America. Once the last Civil War monument has been removed the next……


More fake terror to fool the fools

We should be angry. We should be disgusted. We should refuse to take this shit anymore.

I am talking about our criminal, lying governments and their propaganda arm, the corporate media.

The Manchester Arena “terror attack” is total fucking garbage. It is a fake, phony, staged hoax.


Hypocrisy, island style

Did you know Mt. Everest is not the largest mountain on Earth? That distinction goes to Mauna Kea on Hawai’i Island, also known as the Big Island. The state of Hawaii gets its name from this island, which is the largest of the eight islands that make up the Hawaiian archipelago. It is……


Open response to my father

In a recent email, my father made the following observation:

More and more [American Indian] tribes, with the help of casino money, are closing open space, mountains, creeks, old bones and vast areas of a state is closing off their land. I guess they still don’t like the white man…….


North Korea: No way out?

Yesterday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats issued a joint statement on North Korea that leaves little, if any room for either side to back……


The truth is racist

Given all the pro-war rhetoric force fed to us by the corporate media, I can’t help but think this time the psychopaths might really do it. World War III! Or is it World War IV? To people living in places like Venezuela, Ukraine and Syria, it must feel like the end of the……


Befehl ist befehl?

Ever heard the defense “we were only following orders,” which the accused at the Nuremberg trials in 1945–1946 were not allowed to use? This is known as “superior orders,” a plea in a court of law that a person is not guilty for actions that were ordered by a superior officer or official…….


What you don’t know about North Korea

I have recently observed some absolutely absurd headlines in the mainstream media with regard to the North Korea “threat.” From a “Pearl Harbor-style” attack on Hawaii, to satellites with EMP weapons that can kill 90% of Americans, the bullshit is being laid on double thick.

In 2002, President……


The argument against mass immigration

There is no need to base our opposition to mass immigration—the hordes of “refugees” and economic migrants flooding into Western countries from the Middle East and Africa—solely on the acts of terrorism, rape, murder and other crimes they commit. Even in the complete absence of immigrant crime and violence, the reasons why these……


Propaganda as policy

We cannot trust the corporate media. Mainstream news in particular consists of little more than propaganda. This includes “gray” propaganda, comprising corporate “sponsored news” reports that are merely thinly veiled advertisements or public relations messaging not attributed to an openly identified source, as well as black propaganda, consisting of pre-packaged lies straight from……


On negativity

I have been criticized for “negativity” and “worrying too much.” I have been branded with the labels “crazy” and “conspiracy theorist.” And those are just the stellar reviews from my parents. I can count the number of supporters on one hand, and I have no idea what strangers who happen upon my website……


There is no such thing as a Nazi

There is no such thing as a Nazi. There never was.

The word “Nazi” is a political epithet invented by German Jew Konrad Heiden in the 1920s to denigrate the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, abbreviated as NSDAP) and National Socialism (NAtionalsoZIalismus). It was chosen for……


Always look on the bright side of lies

Has the endless onslaught of shocking revelations, dire predictions and outrageous fake news stories got you down? Are you plagued by feelings of uncertainty, hopelessness and angst? Well, you are supposed to be. Before you reach for that second pint of ice cream and binge watch more episodes of Santa Clarita Diet on……


A club of my own

In his famous letter of resignation to the Friars Club of Beverly Hills, Groucho Marx wrote “I don’t want to belong to any club that will accept people like me as a member.” That is more or less the situation I find myself in today. To be precise, there are few clubs that……


White privilege strikes again

In a shocking display of White privilege, Georgia couple Jose Torres and Kayla Norton were sentenced to only 13 years and 6 years, respectively, for three counts of aggravated assault, one count of making terroristic threats and one count of violating Georgia’s Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act.

Like me, you are……


Embrace the confusion

For those of you fortunate enough to live obliviously somewhere else, Justin Trudeau is the Prime Minister of Canada, a member of that country’s Liberal Party. That in itself should explain the “logic” of his……


How the Left convinced me they’re right

I guess it was the forceful persuasiveness of the Left that finally changed my mind. And by forceful persuasiveness, I mean angry screaming and violent protesting. You can only hear yourself called a racist, homophobic, xenophobic, hate-filled Nazi so many times before you think “well, I suppose they’re right.”

I admit, in……


Immigration as punishment for the Holocaust

In the Current Year, we are all supposed to believe that America Was Never Great—but did you know America is also responsible for the six million Jews that we are told perished in the Holocaust? And the only way to atone for this sin is immigration.

First of all, you should understand……


The very model of a modern quackademic

I have to admit a new guilty pleasure: Tucker Carlson. I don’t actually watch FOX News, but I do watch YouTube clips in which he skillfully eviscerates dumb liberals, hack reporters and lying politicians. If you find yourself explaining something to Tucker Carlson and you see this expression on his face, you are……


Adrift no longer

While studying philosophy in college, I developed an interest in Eastern thought as expressed through Confucianism and especially religions such as Buddhism and Hinduism. For a few years, I took every course offered that had anything to do with India. I read the Mahabharata, the Bhagavad Gita, and to this day, I still……


Udo Ulfkotte found dead

Udo Ulfkotte, German journalist, political scientist and former editor of Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, was found dead of apparent heart failure on January 13, 2017. He was 56 years old.

I first became aware of Mr. Ulfkotte a few years ago when he did an interview on RT in which he claimed that……


The anti-philosophy philosophy

The purpose of education is to teach people how to learn. If successful, a proper education will instill critical thinking, rational thought, and above all, a thirst for knowledge that will last an entire lifetime. The only way we can progress and grow throughout our lives is to constantly learn. Wisdom is the……


Making slaves beg for their chains

In Michigan on Sunday, usual suspects Chuck Schumer and Bernie Sanders led a rally called “Our First Stand: Save Health Care” intended to oppose President-elect Trump’s attempt to overturn and replace the Affordable Care Act.

People actually went out in freezing Michigan temperatures to listen to two known liars as they tried……


The bottomless pit of reparations

Georgetown professor and inciter of racial division and hatred Michael Eric Dyson is decidedly at odds with Martin Luther King’s belief that “A man should not be judged by the color of his skin but by the content of his character.”

Mr. Dyson says the “greatest purveyors of identity politics today, and……


Top five risks in 2017

2017 is a transition year, when a new president and his cabinet will assume office in the United States and critical elections are scheduled to take place across Europe in France, Germany and other key nations. These transitions may lead to improvements, but they may also lead to increasingly dire conditions for people……


The plot thickens

The Berlin truck attack and assassination of the Russian ambassador to Turkey appear to have been staged. I base this opinion on repeated viewing of the raw footage available from both events. I have not followed any of the mainstream news coverage on either event, and have only seen a limited amount of……


Yule: The Winter Solstice

Like most Americans, I grew up with Christmas traditions including a decorated tree with presents underneath, stockings stuffed with goodies hung on the mantelpiece, wreaths hung on doors, a yule log, and of course, Santa Claus sneaking down the chimney on Christmas Eve. And, like most Americans, I never questioned where these traditions……


On the outside looking in

Looking back on my life, I realize that I have lived as an outsider for a large portion of it. I have spent many years living among people of different cultures, who speak different languages and have different customs and traditions from myself. I used to think this somehow made me more worldly……


Racial solidarity for me, but not for thee

A faithful reader sent me a link to an opinion piece on the CNN website by Peniel Joseph, who is the Barbara Jordan Chair in Political Values and Ethics and the Founding Director of the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University……


Contradictions indicating deception

When navigating through the murky waters of the mainstream media, we must look for indications of deception to see past their attempts to trap us in false reality. One such indication is the presence of contradictions in a heavily promoted narrative. Here are some examples.

Pussy grabbing
One of the funniest and……


The pizza is a lie?

A Gallup poll recently revealed that American’s trust in mass media has sunk to a new low: only 32% of Americans still trust the mainstream media. And that was before election day, which proved that the mainstream media are either totally inept or shameless liars. There is no doubt……


Diversity does not work

If you are like me, you are weary of hearing about how great diversity is and how it is a source of strength. This is not always the case. Even when we apply diversity to scenarios other than societal, it can be an utter catastrophe.

Companies engaged in manufacturing achieve economies of……


Too early to complain?

Election 2016 is over and although president-elect Trump has yet to be inaugurated, I already have a sense of dread about the next four years.

I did not vote because I refuse to support the lesser of two evils. I was overjoyed that Hillary Clinton lost, and particularly pleased with all the……


Power, pedophiles and pizza

For parents, there is no greater fear than that posed by the threat of harm to one’s children. Children are the most vulnerable members of society, requiring love, guidance and protection. These are the primary duties of all parents, who are genetically predisposed to put the well-being of their children before themselves in……


The war on truth in a time of universal deceit

The recent claim that “fake news” is an existential threat to American democracy is particularly troubling for those of us that aim to shed light on the dark and dirty underbelly of the military-industrial-corporate-banking-political complex. Unsurprisingly, even President Obama is pushing this false narrative:

Many……


Smartphones are making us dumb

Yesterday, our family spent the day in nearby park enjoying the stunning orange, red and gold autumn leaves. I enjoy sitting outside and simply taking in the sights while listening to birds sing. I also enjoy people watching. We have been going to this particular park for more than 15 years, and lately……


Post election thoughts

It’s finally over.

American voters stood up and gave the middle finger to the status quo. While I am no Trump supporter, I have nothing against those who voted for Trump. Given the choice we were presented with, it seemed like a no-brainer. But rather than excitement over the Trump win, I……


Good news, bad news

I’ve got good news and bad news for you, folks.

The bad news: It doesn’t matter who you vote for, or even if you vote at all.

The good news: It……


Round three of the deplorable debates

Life experience and bearing witness to the absurdities and atrocities that plague our modern world have gone a long way toward eradicating the pernicious idealism of my youth. Yet, I still long for the Socratic utopian ideal of the “Philosopher King.”

Plato tells us Socrates claimed “the way to bring about a……


Social media = censorship and control

I have never had much of an interest in so-called “social” media. Sitting alone behind a screen wasting hours at a time browsing the selfies of people you barely know or reading all the wisdom and pithiness that can be crammed into 140 characters is hardly what I would call being social. Like……


The curious lack of motive

The recent spate of mass casualty events have a curious common thread: the utter lack of a concrete motive.

Of course the media will speculate, jump to conclusions and interpret according to a particular political agenda or predetermined narrative—anything but investigate and report verifiable facts, incomplete though they may be. If there……


On the Trump-Clinton debate

Tonight’s presidential debate was the first I ever actually watched. Although I missed the initial 15-20 minutes, I stuck with it until the end. Admittedly, it wasn’t easy. I found myself looking away from the screen and just listening, because both of their faces are so damn hard to look at for any……


A rambling reflection on recent events

Weirdness abounds in the latest “terrorist” attacks in America, both of which were allegedly perpetrated by Muslim Americans, although President Obama stresses they had nothing to do with Islam. Even when the shooting was accompanied by the dread refrain “Allahu Akbar!”

The bombings in NY/NJ are suspicious because, like the Underwear, Shoe……


Deep State manipulation of U.S. presidential election

It is sad and frustrating to see how many Americans are hoodwinked by the stage-managed freak show that is the U.S. presidential election. Clearly, Americans have lost their short-term memory: Back in 2008, Barack Obama was the last, best hope for an America that was clearly on the wrong track. A vote for……


9/11: 15 years of bullshit

The 21st century has been a total disaster for peace, privacy and freedom. The hostile takeover of the United States went from covert to overt at the turn of this century, when for the second time in U.S. history, the Supreme Court decided the winner of a presidential election. And, for the fourth……


Dear corporate world: It’s not me, it’s you

I never liked going to parties in high school. I just didn’t get what was so fun about it. Later, in college, I felt the same way about going to out to the bars. The noise, horrible music, crowds, superficiality and omnipresent threat of drunken violence was extremely off-putting. Many of my friends……


Pickin’ and grinnin’

When I was a kid, back before the advent of VCRs and cable TV, all we had were 4–5 VHF channels and 1–2 UHF channels. You had little choice in what to watch, and no control over when you watched it. Sometimes tough decisions had to be made: either stay home to watch……


Never be a victim

We are rapidly approaching a tipping point in the West. Wide-spread social unrest and violence loom on the horizon, but few seem to notice. Governments in the U.S. and Europe have been quietly preparing for what is coming, while most citizens remain woefully unaware, stupefied by television, porn, video games, processed junk food……


All hail cultural appropriation!

It’s only a matter of time before whites aren’t allowed to listen to jazz anymore.

Just like dreadlocks and the word “squad,” soon the greatest expression of American culture, what Dizzy Gillespie referred to as “our native……


Japan votes for destruction

On Sunday, July 10th, Japanese citizens voted for the destruction of their country.

Currently, Japan is a nation crippled by failed policies implemented by feckless leaders determined to take the country over the edge and into the abyss. The outcome of this election, which overwhelmingly supports the status quo, gave the Liberal……


Corporate media won’t tell the truth about the “innocent victims”

By now you should be aware that the corporate mainstream media deliberately refuses to cover stories about white people killed by police. This is especially suspicious, as there are actually more white people killed by police each year than black people. If you don’t believe that, you aren’t supposed to…….


The phony war on blacks

In the wake of last week’s events, it is hard to know what to think anymore.

Both the shootings, particularly the one in Falcon Heights, look like they may have been staged. Then there is the curious change in the narrative of the Dallas police shooting, from multiple shooters, to two snipers,……


Making Britain great again

If you ever had any doubt that the corporate media colludes to manipulate your understanding of events, you need look no further than headlines regarding the Brexit victory. Here is a random sampling:

Brexit’s lesson: Do not underestimate angry voters (Los Angeles Times)
“A bad day for Europe”: Brexit stuns EU leaders……


Islam in Japan

As I have written about here, here and here, Japan is not isolated from Islam’s exodus out of the Middle East. When I first came to Japan over 20 years ago, I never saw anyone wearing Muslim garb. Now, I see women wearing burqa in my traditional working class neighborhood,……


The Orlando alligator massacre: Bullshit on top of lies

One tactic used to pass off staged events as real is to introduce elements that appear to discredit the official narrative.

For the past few days, we have suffered through dubious eyewitness accounts and the dry-eyed “crying” of family/friends of alleged victims in Orlando. Those who have chosen to go beyond what……


The good news about SJWs

I must be a glutton for punishment, because for the past few days I have spent way too much time watching SJW videos on YouTube like this:

What was even more disturbing, was discovering the SJW blight is not limited to the United States. Here……


Which corporations control the world?


Source: InternationalBusinessGuide.org


Initial analysis: Fake Orlando shooting is a psy-op

The corporate media cannot be trusted. We are living in an age when we must question everything the media tells us. It is essential we take a critical and dispassionate view of all “news” presented for our consumption.

The alleged mass shooting in Orlando is immediately suspicious. I suspect this is another……


Free from the need to be free

Are any of us truly free? Would we know if we weren’t? What does freedom even mean?

When I was young, I was told that money was the most important thing in the world, because without money, we aren’t free to do anything in life.

If we have money, we are……


The system is working just fine

Given that the U.S. election in November looks like it will be between Clinton and Trump, it is time for Americans to demand a third ballot option: none of the above.

It really says something about the gullibility and ignorance of the American people that, once again, they are being offered two……


Weaponized entertainment

As much as I dislike most of the music of the 1980s—despite the sentimental effect it has on me—it appears this was the last decade of anything new on the American music scene. In the 1990s, we began to see a rehashing of what had come before. In the 2000s, rap versions of……


This is Negan’s world

Although I actively avoid watching television, one of my guilty pleasures is The Walking Dead. I say guilty, because what started out as a genuinely compelling story quickly devolved into an absurd farce, yet like a bad car wreck on the highway, I can’t force myself to stop watching. A more appropriate title……


The financial news media are liars

We are living in the midst of the greatest full-court press of lies and propaganda in human history. Reality has been turned on its head. Black is white. Left is right. Up is down. The so-called “news” media is engaged in pushing false narratives, blatant lies and deliberate misinformation. Nowhere is this more……


Evidence of deception in Brussels

Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action. — Ian Fleming

Fun fact: What do 9/11, the London 7/7 bombings, the shoe bomber, the underwear bomber and this week’s Brussels event all have in common?

A company based in the Netherlands called ICTS.

ICTS is an aviation……


Black Lives Matter: Some black perspectives

It is difficult to be optimistic for the future of the United States of America, especially when viewed through the manipulative lens of the morally bankrupt mass media. Black Lives Matter (BLM), founded and funded by Jewish-Hungarian billionaire and enemy of Western civilization George Soros, is a violent, racist and……


Voices of Brazil: Paula Morelenbaum

Back in 2010, when I began to take a serious interest in bossa nova music, I came across a CD I thought was a recording made by Antonio Carlos Jobim. When I got it home and had a listen, it turned out be Jobim’s music, but recorded after his death by a trio……


Making America great again—for Trump

Fascism is predicated on the idea that people can’t make decisions for themselves; rather, they need a strong leader to make decisions for them. Thus, it is nauseating to watch the American people clamor for a new leader every four years. Especially after so many were duped by the Obama “hope and change”……


The “refugee crisis” is a planned invasion

Given the disastrous ramifications of the “refugee” invasion of Europe we are witnessing at present, logic and common sense dictate that other countries think carefully about accepting refuges/asylum seekers/immigrants. Yet in the United States, “the White House is quietly pushing for an increase in refugees from Syria…a move intended to have the……


Those were the days

I have heard more than one Baby Boomer cite The Andy Griffith Show (1960-68) as representing the America they grew up in. Their fond memories are tainted by the realization that the America of yesteryear is gone—perhaps forever.

I also grew up watching and enjoying The Andy Griffith Show, which was on……


Today Europe…tomorrow Japan?

There are numerous indications Japan will be inundated with immigrants in the coming years. The same problems seen in Europe today are coming to Japan in the near future. There are several reasons why I think this will happen.

Declining population
First and foremost: Japan’s low birth rate. This is one of……


One of these things is not like the other

There is a strange disconnect between criminal activities attributed to Muslim refugees/asylum seekers in Europe versus the United States.

For example, New Year’s Eve in Cologne, Germany, was marred by sexual assaults carried out by gangs of men of Middle Eastern and African origin. This was not an isolated event, but in……


Another mass shooting averted (planned?) by the FBI

Gather round, boys and girls, its story time. Today’s psy-op comes from the sleepy state of Wisconsin, known for its cheese and snow. Less known is that it is also home to the global Masonic control grid.

The villain in this story is called Samy Mohamed Hamzeh, a 23-year old chin strap-bearded……


Warabistan

In October 2015, on a quiet Sunday morning in Tokyo’s Shibuya district, a brawl erupted between Turks and Kurds in front of the Turkish embassy. About 600 people were involved in the fight, which broke out as the two groups were set to cast absentee ballots in the Turkish general election:


Conspiracies: Fantasy or felony?

If you saw the staged and scripted exchange between President Obama, Mark Kelly and Anderson Cooper on CNN’s “Guns in America” propaganda broadcast, you were supposed to be led to believe that conspiracies (i.e. Obama’s secret plot to take our guns away) are absurd and the people who perpetuate them are……


Community (communist) oriented policing

Note: Although my goal is to generate as much original content as possible, the following article is too compelling to simply embed as a link. Written fifteen years ago, this detailed analysis sheds light on the agenda being forced upon us today. While I do not necessarily agree with everything the author contends,……


Don’t appropriate me, bro!

When I see social justice warriors (SJW) pontificating and throwing temper tantrums, I can’t help but think they must never have traveled or spent an extended period of time living in other countries, speaking a second language or struggling to adapt and survive outside their cultural context.

In my experience, traveling to……


98.29% Japanese

Twice each year, Japan’s Ministry of Justice publishes statistics on foreign residents in Japan (current as of June 2015).

Population of Japan: 126,958,000
Non-Japanese residents: 2,172,892

Non-Japanese (NJ) residents make up just 1.71% of the overall population. Not surprisingly, the majority of these are from Asia, which……


Why is the U.S. government staging mass shootings?

Mounting evidence suggests that the mass shootings/mass casualty events in the U.S. that have become almost a daily occurrence in recent years are either hoaxes, false flags or a combination of the two. Let’s start with a definition of those terms:

Hoax

Obama: A better actor than Ronald Reagan?

This is the most disgusting piece of political theater in recent memory. Barack Obama is a mendacious phony. If you haven’t seen this already, get a bucket ready because it may make you vomit:

Obama shedding tears over the college kids at Blacksburg and Santa……


The Dubai miracle

A miracle occurred on New Year’s Eve.

Despite being engulfed by a raging fire, the 63-storey Address Downtown hotel in Dubai did not collapse (disintegrate into dust?) at free-fall speed, through the path of greatest resistance, landing neatly into its own footprint. Suffering a fire that was more extensive and burned longer……


Voices of Brazil: Elis Regina

The first time you listen to Elis Regina, you are overwhelmed by the emotion with which she sings. You can hear her smile and feel her joy. Her intense energy is palpable. The power and attack of her technique spellbinds the listener. Elis interprets every song in her own unique way, with raw……


Baby, it’s cold outside

We are supposed to be encouraged by the announcement that the Paris COP21 meeting ended with an historic agreement. But what is not being mentioned is that the agreement does not include the cost of greenhouse gas reductions, nor how they will be paid for. This is tantamount to buying a house without……


Charlotte’s not the only harlot

Iron Maiden lead singer Bruce Dickinson is a uniquely accomplished human being. In addition to being an airline pilot, an aviation entrepreneur, a motivational speaker, a fencer, a novelist, a script writer and a radio broadcaster, he is also a world-class cunnilinguist.

Having been diagnosed with cancer after the discovery of tumors……


Corporate media as a weapon

The lies and deception being force fed to populations in the U.S., France and around the world are delivered through the corporate media. The corporate media has been weaponized and is waging a war on our minds. None of the paradigm shifts already underway would be possible without the complicity of these giant……


TV, a weapon of mass delusion

To paraphrase Mark Twain: if you don’t get your news from the corporate media, you’re uninformed. If you get your news from the corporate media, you’re misinformed.

Despite the rise of the internet, the primary tool of the corporate media is still the television. By 2013, four out of five homes on……


Amazon.com censorship

Amazon.com will decide what you can and cannot read. Jeff Bezos, CIA asset, evil overlord of Amazon.com and owner of the propaganda-packed Washington Post newspaper, has flagrantly raised a middle finger towards the U.S. Constitution and further subverted our right to free speech and open debate.

About one month after James Fetzer’s Nobody……


You are a slave

We are all slaves. We have been trapped in a system created without our knowledge or consent. Our conception of what constitutes a slave needs an update.

In its most basic form, slavery traditionally involved forced labor by a captive group of people. Even though the slaves worked for free, and even……


Who controls the world?

Consider the Money Pyramid.

Note that the government occupies the lowest level of the control matrix. Corporate lobbyists and NGO’s like AIPAC have more influence over Washington D.C. than……


This is your war, on drugs

Michael Haas, a former senior airman and drone operator for the U.S. Air Force, has gone public with the revelation of widespread drug and alcohol abuse among drone operators. An article in the Intercept reports: “Drone operators, he said, would frequently get intoxicated using bath salts and synthetic marijuana to avoid possible……


Criminalizing thought

Governments around the world are moving to criminalize thought. Consider the following:

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and the European Court of Justice are among those who advocate criminalizing skepticism or doubt regarding climate change.

Message: If you are skeptical about human……


What is terrorism?

Terrorism is only effective at terrorizing us when we know who did it and why they committed an act of terror in the first place. Furthermore, “terrorism” is a political act with a clear objective. The act itself is supposed to send a message. It creates a threat demanding specific action.

Take,……


Evidence of insider trading ahead of 9/11

“Marc Chesney, professor at the Department of Banking and Finance at the University of Zurich, and his colleagues Remo Crameri and Loriano Mancini have published a new version of their scientific long-term project in econometrics, ‘Detecting Informed Trading Activities in the Options Markets.’ One more time the three scientists present evidence for insider……

In U.S., war more important than education

The next time you hear U.S. politicians say “we don’t have enough money for that…” when talking about education, healthcare, affordable housing or renewable energy, just remember that more than 50% of federal discretionary spending goes to “national defense,” in other words, wars waged in other countries, wars fought in Americans’ names that……


This time, it’s gonna be different

Most Americans think the form of government we have in the United States is a Democracy. They are wrong.

The United States of America is a Republic. The dictionary defines a republic as “A political order whose head of state is not a monarch and in modern times is usually a president…in……


The soup odyssey

Last weekend, we were visited by another winter storm that inundated our tiny town with heavy rains, wind and cold temperatures. This was not unwelcome, as we are currently experiencing extreme drought conditions. The situation has been improving since December, but the deep green has yet to return to the hills in which our home……


Insecure about security

They hate us for our freedoms.

No, I’m not referring to the “terrorists.” I am referring to the United States government:

“America will never seek a permission slip to defend the security of our people.”

— George W. Bush

The government will never ask permission to “secure” us, it……


Why we hate you

M.I.T. Professor Emeritus and pseudo-intellectual gate keeper Noam Chomsky describes what he calls the democratic deficit—the difference between the will of the people and the policies they actually get:

“American democracy is what we call a “guided democracy” [a term usually reserved for] countries that we don’t like, like Iran…….


T.I.N.A.

In his 1992 book The End of History and the Last Man, political scientist Francis Fukuyama wrote:

“What we may be witnessing is not just the end of the Cold War, or the passing of a particular period of post-war history, but the end of history as such: that is, the end……


High time

“The old believe everything, the middle-aged suspect everything and the young know everything.”

— Oscar Wilde

As someone who is officially middle-aged raising a young one, I can attest to the truth of the above quote. In fact, the older I get, the more I suspect everything and everyone, including myself…….


Prepackaged news for prepackaged thought

It’s OK, you can admit it—you thought the corporate media was informing you with “news.” You thought the only way to know what is going on in the world was by watching it on TV…

The videos below should clearly demonstrate that television is an evil, propaganda-driven means of controlling how we……


Can you keep a secret?

According to a Reuters article, “the upper house of Japan’s parliament late on Friday [Dec. 6, 2013] approved the state secrets act, which toughens penalties for leaks and broadens the definition of official secrets, despite protests by thousands of demonstrators near parliament and criticism from a broad swathe of media and……


On Philosophy, ethics and prejudice

I studied Philosophy as an undergrad. Philosophy is defined as: a love and pursuit of wisdom by intellectual means and moral self-discipline. As an academic discipline, it falls under the university Science and Liberal Arts curriculum and consists of logic, ethics, aesthetics, metaphysics and epistemology.

I regularly attended Philosophy colloquiums, where professors……


Stop logic

Investopedia defines financial markets as: “any marketplace where buyers and sellers participate in the trade of assets such as equities, bonds, currencies and derivatives. Financial markets are typically defined by having transparent pricing, basic regulations on trading, costs and fees and market forces determining the prices of securities that trade.

Most financial……


The outrage will not be televised

Controlling your perception is the task of the corporate media.

In the United States, 90% of the media—television, print news, radio, film and online—is controlled by six companies.

When only six companies control virtually all……


When I’m 94

Given the ratio of retirees to workers in the U.S. is currently 2:1, I think an update of the Beatles song When I’m 64 is in order:

As I get older, unable to retire,
Many years from now,
Will you still be offering entitlements
Like Medicaid and Medicare or will it all be……


Feeling safer yet?

Air travel in the U.S. is going to become a whole lot safer. Sure, you may have felt a little uneasy after the senseless shooting at LAX back in 2013 targeting those brave men and women who make sure there are no bombs in our shoes and undies nor any shampoo in our……


The art of misdirection

Misdirection is defined as the act of distracting or drawing someone’s attention away from something. Misdirection determines the success of magicians, pickpockets and all manner of confidence tricks in between.

It is also a major tool of the corporate media and other propagandists. For example, how many of us remembered that Obama……


Laughs in translation

Looking back on my life, it occurs to me that I should have been a comedian. The only common thread linking all my misadventures and ill-advised career decisions is the fact that I cannot take anyone or anything seriously. When asked to brainstorm ideas, or suggest ways to “add value,” the only things……


Preying on Japan

Of all the lousy fakes and phonies that crap all over our precious mindspace on a daily basis, Stefani Germanotta certainly deserves top billing.

Also known as Lady Gaga, Germanotta is possibly the most cynical and contrived chunk of fecal matter ever shat out of America’s shallow bung hole. This is a……


Ironically, Fukushima means “lucky island”

Remember the good old days when the scariest thing about hearing the word “nuclear” was George W. Bush’s pronunciation? Read on.

Since November 2013, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), operator of the Fukushima Dai-Ichi Nuclear Power Plant, a facility consisting of six nuclear reactors, three of which were destroyed……


Sorry! We’re closed

It is difficult to understand how the United States government could shut down because of funding problems. Don’t they have a credit card or one of those Pay Day Loans places in Washington D.C.? How can it be that the greatest country in the history of the world, the richest, most powerful nation……


Why no one cares about you

We should be concerned that most of the GOP, and many of the older, cuckservatives in the United States, think Ayn Rand and her philosophy of ethical egoism are the best way forward for the United States. In a country that represents only 5% of the world’s population, yet consumes more than 25%……


We must never forget 9/11

“It is firm and continuing policy that Allende be overthrown by a coup…We are to continue to generate maximum pressure toward this end, utilizing every appropriate resource. It is imperative that these actions be implemented clandestinely and securely so that the U.S government and American hand be well hidden.”

      — Thomas……


“Will you walk into my parlour?” said the spider to the fly

I’ve never been into computers, nor am I fan of the internet. We are supposed to believe that the information superhighway is the greatest thing ever, but the revelations about PRISM and other U.S. government spying has me feeling like smashing my computers, canceling my Internet service and going back to actually talking……


Somewhere, I’m late for dinner

I have an interest in string theory, and some of the ideas that intrigue me most are those involving the multiverse theory, which posits that our universe is not the only game in town; there are many universes that exist parallel to each other. Each of these universes is called (you guessed it)……


Bad news for good jobs

I encourage everyone to read I Was a Warehouse Wage Slave by Mac Mclelland, who went undercover to investigate working conditions inside an online shipping warehouse in the United States. The implications are grim for working class Americans, a growing segment that also includes many people who were earning traditional middle-class……


I know I don’t know what I don’t know, but do you?

I have heard that “ignorance is bliss,” but I wonder. I don’t consider myself blissfully unaware of anything. That is to say, I’m certain there are many things I am unaware of, but the fact that I am ignorant of something doesn’t make me feel blissful. Quite the opposite: I am ashamed and……


The difference between now and then

The Pentagon Papers revealed that the Vietnam War was an unnecessary lie that resulted in the deaths of over 58,000 young, mostly lower-income and working class Americans (and lest we forget, approximately 3.8 million Vietnamese). We know this because of Daniel Ellsberg (former military analyst/RAND Corporation employee, who leaked the Pentagon Papers to……


Paradise, but only for those able to afford it

Although the cost of living in Hawaii is among the highest in the U.S., people earn less here than they could doing the same job on the mainland. A lot of jobs here pay the federal minimum wage, only $7.75 an hour, which isn’t bad when you consider the federal minimum wage for……


The root of all our problem$ and answer to all our prayer$

In July 2013, it was announced that NYSE Euronext would be taking over LIBOR to restore its credibility. Since most people are unfamiliar with what this means, here is a quick primer:

LIBOR = London Interbank Offered Rate. LIBOR is the global benchmark for short-term interest rates. This rate is……


Why own when you can rent?

My father had a reel-to-reel tape player when I was a kid that I have seen in pictures and I vaguely remember 8-track tapes. I listened to albums until around 1988, by which time I had also amassed a sizable cassette tape collection, but traded the whole thing for a handful of CDs……
