Who Are The Illuminati?

Who Are The Illuminati?

By Richard Stone 

“A loose affiliation of millionaires and billionaires” (Paul Simon).
“The world is governed by far different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes” (Benjamin Disraeli).
“Give me control over a nation’s currency, and I care not who makes the laws” (Mayer Rothschild).

Conspiracy theory is the theory that most of the world is secretly governed by a small group of men who operate behind the scenes. Conspiracy theory is now an accepted turn of phrase but sometimes one hears the expression, sometimes whispered rather than spoken. “The Illuminati”.

What does this mean? Who are the Illuminati? They are, in essence, a cartel of international bankers and industrialists based in Western Europe and North America. The names of certain families persist over long periods of time. Some of the most important names are Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, Lazard, Warburg, Schroder and Schiff.

The pivotal family is probably the house of Rothschild, the descendants of Mayer Rothschild (1743 – 1812) of Frankfurt. The male descendants of this family, for at least two generations, generally married first cousins or even nieces. The family established banking institutions in Vienna, London, Naples and Paris as well as Frankfurt. Ever since the middle ages, these families have been building their power by lending money at rates of interest to the monarchies and governments of Europe who were forever in debt, particularly in times of war. Sooner than tax the population to raise funds, always an unpopular measure, they usually preferred to borrow money from the money-lenders. This was the birth of the concept “the national debt.” The countries of the world are forever in debt but where there is a debtor there is a creditor – who is this money owed to? It is owed to this coterie of international bankers.

By the nineteenth century the power of the Rothschild family was immense. They increased their wealth with great cunning and cleverness, while maintaining a low public profile. A notable example of their methods was their exploitation of the battle of Waterloo. The Rothschilds had spies watching the course of the battle and as soon as became evident that Wellington had won, a Rothschild agent traveled at maximum speed to London, arriving hours before Wellington’s own messenger. Rothschild received the messenger and began conspicuously selling his stocks. The whole stock exchange assumed that Wellington had lost and Napoleon had won so everybody started selling, at this point, other Rothschild agents bought up huge stocks at give-away prices. Thus an already massive fortune was massively increased.

The Rockefeller family may be equally important. The pivotal figure in this family was J.D.Rockefeller, who made his fortune out of Standard Oil or Esso in Ohio and Pennsylvania. He also controlled the railroads. When rival road transport systems were established he attempted to block them by parking his trains across the roads at level crossings. His basic business technique was the elimination of competitors at all costs, followed by the establishment of a monopoly, followed by profit taking. He rapidly gained a name for huge wealth, secrecy and hard and dirty business practice. In his later years he had a harsh and gaunt appearance, so to counter his bad “public image” JD more or less invented the PR industry. He had short films of himself made, calculated to charm the public, himself playing golf with a pretty little child for instance. This film was shown on TV recently. It has a rather false and amateurish air but was very effective with the public of the day.

The Rockerfellers currently have controlling interests in Exxon (the world’s biggest company) and the Chase Manhattan Bank, which turns over trillions of dollars a week. With so many billions in their hands already, what does more money mean? Obviously it means more power and more control over other human beings, but to what end and in whose name?

Apparently in the name of Lucifer, the fallen angel also known as the bringer of light, hence the name “Illuminati”, which means “the enlightened ones”. Lucifer is also known for the characteristics of pride, deception and impermanence. The illuminati were apparently founded in Bavaria in 1770 by one Adam Weisshaupt, a student of the Jewish philosopher Mendelsohn, and backed by the Rothschild family. The society has always been based on the lodges of Freemasonry, which was taken over at the highest levels during the course of the eighteenth century by agents of the Illuminati. Freemasonry is a very secretive institution, to the extent that members at one level do not know what members at another level are doing. Hence it is an organisation which is full of bonhomie and good deeds at the lower and middle levels, while its motives and deeds at the highest levels veer towards the dark side.

Both Freemasonry and Judaism have strong roots in the ancient Egyptian systems of religious belief, and it was this very similarity which attracted the illuminati to Freemasonry, for most of them were Jewish. It is a source of controversy today to speculate whether or not they are still predominantly Jewish. No unfair racism intended – they either are or they aren’t. Certainly there is much evidence to suggest that they are not, George Bush for instance, a prominent illuminati figure and obviously not Jewish.

The all seeing eye on the U.S. Dollar Bill

The United States of America is more or less a creation of Freemasonry. The symbol of Freemasonry was placed on the cornerstone of the Whitehouse, while the assembled Freemasons lodges stood and watched the ceremony. The famous all-seeing eye in the pyramid appears on the one dollar bill. It is one of the main symbols of Freemasonry. This bill also bears the inscription, in Latin, “1776, the year of inception of a new world order”. If one joins the dots formed by the stars of the thirteen original states one obtains an exact Star of David.

The goal of the IlIuminati is total control of the world. The only nations, which are holding out against their power, are some Islamic nations and China but this resistance is limited because the Illuminati have crushing economic power.

There are certain methods of subjugation and control which are indispensable to this power. The first is, of course, complete control over all financial systems, all borrowing and lending. All banks, all building societies, all insurance companies have to be under their control. At the lowest level even the smallest bank will be forced to toe the line. At the highest level the World Bank decides the fate of countries. It is an interesting and amazing fact that both the Federal Reserve Bank and the Bank of England are controlled by these Illuminati dynasties, in spite of the names of these banks, which suggest that they are run for public benefit. It is said that both Abraham Lincoln and John Kennedy wanted to change this system.

The second essential component is control of the media. It is controlled through business fashion. If the board meeting, or the management meeting, or the sales meeting, or the training meeting suggests that facts should be presented in a certain way, who is going to present them differently? There is an implied threat to one’s job and one’s career. Few people would gladly face demotion, retrenchment or the dole and most people are so ambitious they will do nearly anything “reasonable” to court favour with their superiors. This is how business is controlled and the media is the most important part of business, for it controls people’s minds. People are very suggestible and often lend more credence to what they see on “the box” than to what happens on their own street. The Illuminati know this and use this suggestibility factor to the full. Lenin’s key move during the Russian revolution was the capture of the radio station.

The third factor in the control system is the universities, and through them the whole education system. Particular effort is put into the schools of sociology, politics, economics and education, hence “liberal” systems of education which are often degenerate and even violent. Their men are inserted into the universities through the power of funding by big business. They then spread their influence downwards through tertiary to secondary and primary education.

The fourth factor is the enormous influence wielded by two similar organisations, The Council of Foreign Relations in the USA and the Royal Institute of International Affairs in England. These institutions are schools for statesmen, Illuminati statesmen. They are the stamping grounds of men such as Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinksi and Lord Carrington. These two “think tanks” have a crucial influence on all US and British governments, no matter which party is “in power”. The statesmen produced by these institutions can and do decide the fate of nations.The tax-exempt foundations are also instruments of Illuminati power. The Ford foundation and the Rockefeller foundation are two prominent examples of this type of “charitable” institution. They were heavily involved in supporting various communist powers when the cold war was at its height. Communism versus capitalism arms race = more money and power for the Illuminati. So these are some of the structures through which the Illuminati work but what methods do they use?

Pitting one side against the other, using a theory devised by Hegel, which is: Thesis versus antitheses – synthesis.

Every force tends to have an opposite counterforce. The conflict between the two results in a new situation, the synthesis. The illuminati make it their business to be the synthesis. Thus no problem situation is ever “nipped in the bud” it is rather fostered and used, just as the Soviet Union was fostered and used.

The insertion of immigrant groups into countries is a variation of this divide and rule process. Each group can be played off against the other.

“Double talk” and “double think”. George Orwell knew instinctively what was going on when he invented these two expressions:
I categorically deny = it will happen a bit later.
Peace = war by another means.

To say one thing and do another is fundamental to Illuminati practice. They believe that the public will accept these lies through laziness and wishful thinking. Unfortunately they are usually correct.

“Keep them busy busy busy, back on the farm with the other animals.” We are kept so busy with business (or busyness) that we do not understand or participate in the decisions and events that will crucially affect our future.

When a real power move is made it is usually done secretly and suddenly often with the pretence that nothing has happened. There is preparation for opposition, but conflict is often not necessary as most people have been trained to be so passive that they will probably not create an effective opposition.

Use of front men in important positions. These front men have the characteristic of “servile obedience”, probably because of a blot or blots on their character which they are anxious to conceal. Most of the Presidents of the USA fall into this category. The current situation springs to mind. Behind the opponent stands the man with real power, who has long been groomed for this position. Men like Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski and George Bush are in this category.

The assassination of opposing leaders as quietly and as secretly as possible, so as to simulate a natural death. If this is not possible due to time constraints or other limited circumstances, surrogates are used and the lines of suspicion are covered by deception, false accusation and if necessary, multiple assassinations. Induced heart attacks, fake motor accidents and apparent suicides are also favoured methods of assassination.

Social engineering. An easily manipulated rabble is what is required. Mixed population groups with weak morals, weak traditions, low educational standards and weak group willpower are the aim. Those with special aptitudes can be taken out and trained to serve the illuminati for technical purposes, security purposes or as part of the propaganda apparatus. The middle class will become surplus to requirements and will be reduced to relative poverty.

Mockery and submission of the manners and morals of societies which show any resistance. Control of the media, the fashion industries and the education systems are essential components in this strategy. “Free love”, the cult of youth, mockery of the Christian and Muslim faiths also fall into this category. “I don’t give a rats ass about Jesus Christ” is one recent masterpiece from one of Hollywood’s biggest starts. He probably didn’t realise what he was saying, which makes him a “useful idiot’. A “useful idiot” is much more effective than a conscious supporter. By these means of subversion societies and nations are conquered from within and open battle is usually not necessary.

The conduct of unrelenting economic warfare. This is the real war and continues even while the bombs are falling and the bullets are flying. The important part is the control of the enemy’s economy after the conflict. The recent economic crash in the far-eastern countries is in reality an assertion of the Illuminati’s economic power, an expression of economic dominance. The Illuminati now control 10-15% of the Japanese economy. This is public knowledge, that is what has been bought at bargain prices. In reality they probably control much more.

Control and exploitation of the standards of public health. The sale of prescription drugs is a huge business generating mega profits. Medical operations and treatments can also be very profitable to big business. These extreme treatments have their place but are over-used for the sake of profit.

In fact big business, particularly the big drug companies, have a vested interest in the ill health of the population. These companies, working through the US Food and Drug Administration, have tried to suppress the health food industry. In this they have largely failed but now the game is to own it and control it so that health foods can only be afforded by the elite.

Argument through defamation of character. The factual debate is ignored while characters are defamed. This is usually a very effective technique as many human beings are very suggestible and seem reluctant to use their reasoning abilities. Thus a “smear campaign” can easily draw attention away from the facts.

To conclude, it is growing increasingly evident that a world government is developing, and many would say that it is probably no bad thing, but few have asked for what purpose this “new world order” is created. Nor have they asked themselves what the consequences will be. These consequences (or some of them) will probably be as follows:

• Increasing profits for big business, increasing poverty for the middle class (who they despise). A rapid decline in moral standards and the promotion of social decay.

• Transience. Jobs that don’t last; neighbourhoods that don’t last.

• Increasing levels of crime and violence.

• Decline and demise of public services; replacement by private enterprise – good service for the few who can afford it.

• Ongoing ill health for the bulk of the population because of stress; poor quality foods; food additives; genetic engineering; pollution and drugs. There may be good health for those who can afford it – only the rich and well informed.

• The gradual phasing out of national governments, which will have powers more like the regional governments of today.

• The formation of several conglomerations like the United States.

In time a world leader will be announced, a real one this time. A pity he will have a cynical contempt for the most of humanity. Do we deserve it?

Divide & Conquer: How Racism Is Being Used To Distract From the Great Reset and Collapse

The Dollar Vigilante – July 12, 2020

Europe: Rape Victims Accused of Racism

Raymond Ibrahim – Gatestone Institute July 11, 2020

  • “[W]e are neglecting to properly address the religious and racist aspects of grooming gang crimes…. It’s telling them that it’s OK to hate white people.” — “Ella”, a British woman who was raped more than 100 times in her youth by a Pakistani sex grooming gang, YorkshireLive, April 29, 2020.
  • Advice against alcohol, drugs, and reckless behavior would be more compelling if it were not made under duress.
  • Even when it comes to rape, then, if the victim is white and the rapist is not, she is no victim at all; worse, she is a “racist” and “hater” who, if anything, apparently deserves what she got and more. “Blame the victim” is back with a vengeance and gaining ground throughout the West.

ROTHERHAM, ENGLAND – NOVEMBER 30: Labour’s newly elected Member of Parliament Sarah Champion walks on to the stage to be declared the winner of the Rotherham by-election on November 30, 2012 in Rotherham, England. UKIP candidate Jane Collins finished second. The by-election was called after former MP Denis McShane wrongly claimed expenses and stepped down from his parliamentary seat earlier this month (Photo by Christopher Furlong/Getty Images)

An increasingly popular idea is that whenever races clash, only minorities can be victims. The notion is hardly limited to the recent riots in America. Elements of such thinking often appear in other contexts.

British women, for instance, including rape victims who drew attention to “Asian” (Pakistani and South Asian) sex grooming gangs, are also being attacked by the “woke” establishment.

Earlier this month in the UK, Sarah Champion, a Labor politician and MP for Rotherham (the epicenter of sex grooming), was accused of “fanning the flames of racial hatred” and “acting like a neo-fascist murderer.” Her crime? She had dared to assert that “Britain has a problem with British Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls.”

The same elements accusing Champion of being a “murderer” also characterized the UK’s anti-extremism program, Prevent, as being “built upon a foundation of Islamophobia and racism.”

A few weeks earlier, an article titled, “I was raped by Rotherham grooming gang—now I still face racist abuse online,” appeared. In it, a British woman (alias, “Ella”) revealed that her Muslim rapists called her “a white whore, a white b***h,” during the more than 100 times she was raped in her youth by the Pakistani grooming gang.

“We need to understand racially and religiously aggravated crime if we are going to prevent it and protect people from it and if we are going to prosecute correctly for it,” she said in a recent interview.

“Prevention, protection and prosecution—all of them are being hindered because we are neglecting to properly address the religious and racist aspects of grooming gang crimes…. It’s telling them that it’s OK to hate white people.”

Ella’s attempts to highlight the “religious and racist aspects” of her and many other girls’ similar abuse led only to “a lot of abuse from far-left extremists, and radical feminist academics,” she said. Such groups “go online and they try to resist anyone they consider to be a Nazi, racist, fascist or white supremacist”.

“They don’t care about anti-white racism, because they appear to believe that it doesn’t exist. They have tried to floor me and criticise me continually and this has been going on for a couple of months. They tried to shut me down, shut me up … I’ve never experienced such hate online in my life. They accuse me of ‘advocating for white paedophiles’ and being a ‘sinister demonic entity.'”

Placing the blame — or at least responsibility — on the victim is not limited to the UK. According to an August 9, 2019 report, “in the Swedish city of Uppsala … four women were raped in as many days.” Although police failed to issue descriptions of the rapists — usually a sure sign of their origins — they did issue warnings for women to “think how they behave,” to “think ahead,” and not “go out alone.”

Advice against alcohol, drugs, and reckless behavior would be more compelling if it were not made under duress.

After mobs of Muslim migrants sexually assaulted as many as a thousand women on New Year’s Eve 2016 in Cologne, Germany, the city’s mayor, Henriette Reker, called on women to “be better prepared, especially with the Cologne carnival coming up. For this, we will publish online guidelines that these young women can read through to prepare themselves.”

In Austria, after a 20-year-old woman waiting at a bus stop in Vienna was attacked, beaten and robbed by four Muslim men — including one who “started [by] putting his hands through my hair and made it clear that in his cultural background there were hardly any blonde women” — police responded by telling the victim to dye her hair.

“At first I was scared, but now I’m more angry than anything. After the attack they told me that women shouldn’t be alone on the streets after 8pm. And they also gave me other advice, telling me I should dye my hair dark and also not dress in such a provocative way. Indirectly that means I was partly to blame for what happened to me. That is a massive insult.”

In Norway, Unni Wikan, a female professor of social anthropology at the University of Oslo, insists that “Norwegian women must take their share of responsibility for these rapes,” because Muslim men found their manner of dress provocative. So much for the feminist claim that women are free to dress as seductively as they want — and woe to the man who misinterprets this, unless he is from a racial or religious minority group.

Professor Wikan’s conclusion was not that Muslim men living in the West need to adjust to Western norms, but the exact opposite: “Norwegian women must realize that we live in a Multicultural society and adapt themselves to it.”

Even when it comes to rape, then, if the victim is white and the rapist is not, she is no victim at all; worse, she is a “racist” and “hater” who, if anything, apparently deserves what she got and more. “Blame the victim” is back with a vengeance and gaining ground throughout the West.

Illuminati “Will Leave No Aspect of Global Society Untouched.”

henrymakow.com — July 13, 2020

Democracy is a Farce – Our Leaders Have Betrayed Us 

“Taken together, the United Nation’s Agenda 2030, the Paris Climate Agreement, the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Bank for International Settlement’s ‘Innovation BIS 2025’ offer an insight into how elites want to turn the lives of every man, woman, and child inside out over the course of the next decade…
Every major industry in the world, be it banking, agriculture, healthcare, media, retail, travel, and tourism, is directly connected to the World Economic Forum through corporate membership…”
The WEF “unites business, government, and civil society.”

The World Economic Forum – The Institution Behind the Great Reset

by Steven Guinness — (abridged by henrymakow.com)

Details of ‘The Great Reset’ come as nations began to reopen their economies following a global lockdown.
The extent to which Covid-19 has dominated every facet of existence – largely because of unrepentant media coverage – has encouraged people to focus exclusively on what life will be like after the virus.
For many, what came before now seems inconsequential. It is anything but. For example, three months before Covid-19 took hold, a global pandemic exercise – Event 201 – was held in New York City which simulated the outbreak of a coronavirus that originated in Brazil.
The scenario focused on a novel zoonotic virus that ‘transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic.’ Whilst initially some countries managed to control the outbreak, it ended up spreading, and ‘eventually no country can maintain control’.
The simulation culminated at the eighteen-month mark with 65 million people having died and severe economic and societal repercussions. But that was not the end of it. As the scenario explained, ‘the pandemic will continue at some rate until there is an effective vaccine or until 80-90 % of the global population has been exposed. From that point on, it is likely to be an endemic childhood disease.’
Event 201 also used the exercise as an opportunity to warn that ‘the next severe pandemic will not only cause great illness and loss of life but could also trigger major cascading economic and societal consequences that could contribute greatly to global impact and suffering.’
That pandemic arrived in the shape of Covid-19, just weeks after the conclusion of Event 201.
On examining the makeup of Event 201, we find that the three institutions at the forefront of the simulation were the World Economic Forum, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
It is through the WEF that ‘The Great Reset’ was launched, in what the group said was in response to Covid-19. Johns Hopkins has been the go-to source for the number of global infections and deaths thanks to their newly established Coronavirus Resource Center‘. And then you have The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation which has been a driving force behind efforts for a vaccination to be found and disseminated worldwide.
Event 201 consisted of fifteen ‘players’ that represented, amongst others, airlines and medical corporations. Out of these fifteen, six are direct partners of the World Economic Forum. One is the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, with the other five being Marriott International (hospitality), Henry Schein (medical distribution), Edelman (communications), NBCUniversal Media and Johnson & Johnson.
To be clear, these organizations do not all operate at the same level within the WEF. For instance, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Johnson and Johnson are ‘Strategic Partners’, the highest stage for a participant. Only 100 global companies are Strategic Partners, and to qualify for an invitation they must all have ‘alignment with forum values’. Not only that, but Strategic Partners ‘shape the future through extensive contribution to developing and implementing Forum projects and championing public-private dialogue.’
Beneath the Strategic Partners are the ‘Strategic Partner Associates’, which is the category that NBCUniversal Media fall under. Strategic Partner Associates include some of the largest businesses in the world, who are ‘actively involved in shaping the future of industries, regions and systemic issues’. According to the WEF, associates also believe in ‘corporate global citizenship’.
Next come the ‘Partners’ which comprise of Marriott International, Henry Schein, and Edelman. Partners are described by the WEF as ‘world class companies’ who possess a ‘strong interest in developing systemic solutions to key challenges’.
Finally, there are the ‘Associate Partners’. Whilst they participate in ‘forum communities’ and have a ‘strong interest in addressing challenges affecting operations and society at large’, none were present at Event 201.
Every major industry in the world, be it banking, agriculture, healthcare, media, retail, travel and tourism, is directly connected to the World Economic Forum through corporate membership…

Reflections in a Petri Dish – July 13, 2020

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
I have lived so long with certain understandings that I don’t question the validity of what I have proved out to myself often enough to feel confident about the perspective I arrived at. Also… and this is a biggie.; during my individual Kundalini experience, I had information arrive in such volume that it took a long time to integrate it all. Then there have been other Kundalini events that followed, of lesser force but still significant, in respect of what I was able to realize from them. Along with this came a great deal of knowledge from previous lives.
This in no way causes me to feel superior, or to be superior, given my unwavering awareness of the knowledge possessed by those further up the road from me and then there are the levels of wisdom and understanding that belongs to The Sun and other entities that are far beyond the human state. Given what I have been permitted to see and experience, my insignificance is indelibly branded into my consciousness. I am nothing at all and I know this. The ONLY THING that gives me any value is that which is resident in me AND… in everyone else BUT we are NOT all equal in that regard. I won’t be going into why that is. If I try to explain each of the points and principles made and mentioned here I would never finish this post. It is up to the reader to do their own research and that is what you are here for anyway… unless you are not. Then you learn the hard way.
I only mention this to bring up a particular point. It seems that for most people, Karma provides a near-insurmountable obstacle for their belief systems. They seem unable to understand WHY such a force exists and why God… who is all-powerful, doesn’t fix it. I am going to try, to the degree that I am able, to explain how I understand Karma and how those far past my own level of awareness understand it as well; because my understanding of many subjects is based on the conclusions reached by those of a much greater level of comprehension than I. It is also true that much of what I believe is the result of a long period of observation and not in just this particular appearance. I should also add that those whom I refer to as having a far greater level of comprehension than I are nearly all in full agreement with each other and I… am in agreement with them.
Maybe giving you something of a time frame will help with the initial hurdle of getting over how it is that so many terrible things happen to so many people and to children. Children!!! There are 4 ages in a cycle, just as we have the four seasons in a year. Each of the ages is called a Yuga and the yugas are called; Satya, Treta, Dvapara, and Kali. The first of these, Satya, is the most light-infused and possesses the greatest amounts of wisdom and good qualities. It goes downhill from there by degrees and each succeeding Yuga has less light than the one before. The first Yuga is said to last for a little under 2 million years and each following Yuga is shorter than the previous one. Finally, there is the Kali Yuga which ‘they say’ lasts under half a million years.
Life is exquisite in Satya and not too bad in the next two either. As life moves to Kali Yuga, ignorance increases and so does vice. There is hardly any vice or ignorance in Satya. These numbers, however, are chicken feed to the big numbers, which are what composes a single day of Brahma and that is A THOUSAND ROTATIONS OF 4 YUGAS. Try as you might, you cannot imagine this. Although traditional Hindu pundits all more or less agree on these numbers, one realized yogi of recent vintage, attributes considerably less time to these periods and that is Sri Yukteswar. According to him, we are coming out of the Kali Yuga now and I agree with him. He wrote a book called The Holy Science and it is not for everyone. It is quite dense. BUT… BUT… even if the numbers are considerably reduced you STILL CANNOT IMAGINE SUCH A LENGTH OF TIME.
The cosmic scale of things is beyond the comprehension of mere mortals who come and go here through a rotation of lives that can amount to millions. This is also impossible to imagine. At this point, I need to mention that the universe operates according to inflexible rules of order and that there is, within this universe a consciousness that is so profound and also unimaginable that NOT A SINGLE ACT EVER COMMITTED is ever missed. It is all recorded and our personal record is imprinted into the fabric of the being of every single one of us. We take our history with us wherever we go and there is NO ESCAPING IT. The living out of Karma is what erases the magical letters of record imprinted on our being until none remain.
You may not like it. You may not understand it BUT… everything that happens to every single one of us is the result of our happening to whatever it was that then happened back on us. Whether you are a baby who cannot walk or an old person who can no longer walk, whatever you encounter is something you orchestrated at another time. The Kali Yuga is The Payback Yuga. This is not to say that there is no payback, both good and ill, in the other yugas. There is but it is in Kali Yuga where everything that didn’t get resolved at another time, including whatever you got up to in Kali Yuga, is finally addressed.
This universe is the body of God and every single lifeform from those too small to be seen by the eye to massive stars- also living things- are individual expressions of God operating in that form. It is ALL God playing hide and seek with himself. Let us imagine a huge mirror that is splintered into countless fragments, each of these is a living thing. God shatters this mirror and then spends the rest of the time gathering all of the pieces back together. TRULY FORTUNATE are those with the insight and awareness that motivates them to cooperate in this activity. Everyone else is running around doing whatever it is that they do AND EVERYTHING YOU THINK AND SAY AND DO HAS COSTS AND CONSEQUENCES. That… is Karma.
Why doesn’t God make it all perfect and free of cost and consequences? Well… there are places where that is the case. You need to get there if that is what you want but… YOU WON’T GET THERE IF YOU ARE MESSING AROUND WITH EVERYTHING ELSE HERE, or feverishly consumed in a feeding frenzy for this that or the other thing. It is true that we are all already perfect BUT… Realization is what is missing. You need to get realized. You need to become Jivanmukti.
Some souls there are, great souls, who are pained beyond measure by what they see here and who spend many lives of austerity and lesser selfless service, in order to get to a point where they can come back here and rescue some amount of the willing. They are among you now, whether you can see them or not. Some of us are DIRECTLY EMPLOYED BY HEAVEN to serve here BUT you can’t save those who don’t want to be saved. My friends… as simple as it is for those who understand it, it is a thing of the greatest complexity and NO ONE has satisfactorily explained it yet; not in any comprehensive fashion. That is why there has been more than one avatar, even if they are all the same and why there are all those religions, even if… in essence, they are all the same. That is why there are all these languages and nations rising and falling and cultures coming and going, ever and ever on.
You don’t like what goes on here? Leave! You don’t have to stay here. Your own actions are what keeps you here and thinking you know what’s what is one of the biggest obstacles you face. Heaven awaits but there are those who will tell you that they have no interest in Heaven. They have a different objective that has to do with Total Liberation but we won’t be going into that at this time. Heaven is something you can take with you wherever you go and you can share it as liberally as you wish, once you have EARNED that privilege. IN THIS PRESENT TIME FRAME… there are possibilities that are also impossible to imagine, so fine and wonderful are they. This is why the fascinations and material bondages are so great. It is all about the degree of difficulty in relation to the magnitude of the opportunities.
Under no circumstances can you do it on your own. You need help and help is there and you can contact that help within yourself, by crying out for it with the necessary force and level of persistence. That which you need to ferry you beyond the ocean of birth and death is present within you ALWAYS. It is witnessing your life through your eyes and closer to you than you can imagine. It is possible to have your slate wiped absolutely clean at this time and I am not exaggerating. It has happened and will happen to some. GRACE is ever possible. Love God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind. Nothing more is required of you. LOVE GALVANIZES THE GOD FORCE!!!
God cannot resist true love. It is the great magical secret and the great magical agent, although there are other forces available that can accomplish certain transformative occurrences. I realize and you should realize that I am leaving a lot out here but I am not leaving out critical and important details. Understanding the power of love alone is all you really need.
You may not like how things are here and you may not understand why things are the way they are. Better yet, let me say, THE WAY THINGS SEEM. You can change the whole course of your life this very moment but… you WILL need to be sincere and committed. You can’t waver or backslide; keeping in mind that all of us fall to the side many, many, many times BUT… only a few of us keep picking ourselves back up and soldiering on. Like The Wayfarer said in the Stephen Crane poem, when he saw that the pathway to Truth, was overgrown not with weeds but with knives; “Doubtless there are other roads.”

Explosive: New Melania-Epstein Ties Alleged Along with Massive Cover-up

Veterans Today – July 13. 2020

Trump’s real addiction has been prostitutes and porn stars.  It is also his weakness and why Roy Cohn, Barr, Guiliani and Cohen spent much of their lives cleaning up his messes.  We also know Trump won’t turn down a little girl when Epstein offers one. (link)

Who else did Melenia date?

It’s also why 140,000 Americans are dead and why America is drowning.

Snopes.com: “Epstein stated that he introduced Donald Trump in 1998 to his future wife Melania”

Editor’s note: We have confirmed that Jeffrey Epstein owned a modeling agency where he brought girls in from Slovenia to be used to seduce and blackmail wealthy and powerful men, according to a new MSM story, on behalf of Israeli intelligence.


We also know that it was Jeffrey Epstein that introduced Melania to Donald, something confirmed in the MSM story below.  Are those things connected?


Connecting “dots” or more than dots, much more, involving Trump, Epstein and Israeli control of Trump can and we believe has been fatal.

What happened in the rest of the film….? (this screenshot was repeatedly removed from VT archives through national security level malware that crashed the website). Click to enlarge

Our people like Melania, say she hates Donald.  Imagine that!

We aren’t saying that Melania, who is from Slovenia and came to the US as a model, with a history of questionable films, a history erased by plastic surgery and extremely aggressive action in her home country….

Where did the nose go?

We aren’t saying that at all but we are saying that the Maxwell/Epstein organization was a Mossad operation, which is confirmed here, based on statements during Acosta’s confirmation hearings.  From the Daily Beast:

“Is the Epstein case going to cause a problem [for confirmation hearings]?” Acosta had been asked. Acosta had explained, breezily, apparently, that back in the day he’d had just one meeting on the Epstein case. He’d cut the non-prosecution deal with one of Epstein’s attorneys because he had “been told” to back off, that Epstein was above his pay grade. “I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone,” he told his interviewers in the Trump transition, who evidently thought that was a sufficient answer and went ahead and hired Acosta. (The Labor Department had no comment when asked about this.)

By “intelligence,” they meant “Israeli intelligence,” of course.  What they forgot to mention is that his target was the United States.

Maxwell came from a Mossad family, they murdered her father in 1991 for trying to blackmail them.  We could never find what Epstein actually did for a living and we looked really hard.  We start with him leaving college without a degree and getting a teaching job from current Attorney General William Barr’s father at an exclusive school…though he had no degree, teaching experience, certification…and was even then an extreme risk at the Dalton School, one awash with sex abuse intrigues.

Then comes Les Wexner…and we begin seeing the moves toward 9/11, war with Iraq and an economic collapse in 2008….but this story is from today’s Daily Beast:

“Donald Trump once hosted a party with a guest list made up of just himself, Jeffrey Epstein, and “28 girls,” according to The New York Times, and ignored an organizer’s warning about Epstein’s conduct. The “calendar girl” event is reported to have taken place at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago in 1992.

George Houraney, who ran American Dream Enterprise, claimed in an interview that he organized the event after a request from Trump. “I arranged to have some contestants fly in,” said Houraney. “At the very first party, I said, ‘Who’s coming tonight? I have 28 girls coming.’ It was him and Epstein.” Houraney added that he warned Trump about his friend’s conduct, recalling: “I said, ‘Look, Donald, I know Jeff really well, I can’t have him going after younger girls.’… He said, ‘Look I’m putting my name on this. I wouldn’t put my name on it and have a scandal.’” The Times report also claims Epstein has told people since the election that he was the one who introduced the president to his third wife, first lady Melania Trump. The White House didn’t respond to the newspaper’s request for comment.”



BLM terrorists cut down memorial to 9-11 firefighters in New York

This isn’t about George Floyd anymore

JD Heyes – Natural News July 13, 2020

Regardless of what George Floyd did in his past, he didn’t deserve to have the life choked out of him on a dingy, dirty Minneapolis street earlier this year, and the fact is, the vast majority of Americans agree with that.

And most Americans could understand the anger and outrage expressed in the form of protests — legitimate, peaceful protests — following his death.

But now, months after the incident, it’s become clear that the continuing riots and violence, along with the desecration and destruction of monuments around the country, have nothing to do with honoring or ‘seeking justice’ for Floyd.

Reports noted last week that Black Lives Matter Marxists cut down a flagpole honoring firefighter heroes who lost their lives during the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in a blatant anti-American display.

Big League Politics reported on the latest act of “cultural genocide”:

Black Lives Matter (BLM) rioters have targeted a 9/11 memorial in Washingtonville, N.Y. honoring fallen firefighters who lost their lives as first responders during the World Trade Center attacks. Washingtonville Police Chief Brian Zacarro said that the terrorists severed a flag pole near the base of the memorial using a large saw. 

They vandalized the bottom of the statue with a message that law enforcement is currently refusing to release to the public. 

Community members are outraged at the defacing of the monument, which occurred as part of a coordinated marxist movement to rape what’s left of America.

“The destroy everything & hate everyone culture has struck again last night as the Washingtonville NY Orange County 9/11 Memorial park was vandalized & AMERICAN FLAG CUT DOWN. These individuals obviously don’t know what sacrificing everything to save a fellow human being really is,” said a tweet from NYCFireWire, a newswire service focusing on the FDNY, in response to the senseless destruction of a monument to heroes.

“This is simply disgusting. These vandals obviously were not alive on 9/11/2001 – didn’t watch brave men and women rush towards a building that was on fire, about ready to collapse in order to save as many people as possible,” another user wrote.

Meanwhile, Washingtonville Mayor Joseph Bucco says his police department is on the case and will find the perpetrators.

“Our police department is in the process of collecting evidence, and I promise you they will not leave any stone unturned to find the person or people responsible for theses damages. Please be assured that whoever is responsible will be prosecuted to the fullest extent allowed by law,” he wrote on Facebook, noting further that the city is offering a $3,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest and conviction.

“We also learned the entrance sign to Saint Mary’s Parish Center was also destroyed and the eagle that stood on the Memorial Flagpole was seen at the Saint Mary’s Site,” the mayor also noted. (Related: Seattle holds white re-education seminar where employees are forced to admit their “complicity in the system of white supremacy”.)

It’s become obvious the American Marxist Left has launched a full-fledged cultural revolution against our country. These are no longer random acts of stupidity by pranksters and goofball Millennials with too much time on their hands.

These monuments have meaning. Like the 9/11 memorial, they are nearly sacred. And that’s why they are being chosen. It’s an effort to attack our culture, our founding, our history, and our traditions (which don’t include ‘systemic racism’ — not for decades).

At some point, the culture warriors will cross a line. We don’t know where or when, but someone, somewhere, will go too far, and there will be massive pushback from a growing silent majority who will have been shoved to their limits.

And likely, violence.

Americans are a patient lot. But once that patience is tested beyond its limit, there’ll be hell to pay.

BLM Activists Swarm and Torment Daughter of Murdered Police Officer

Your Destination Now – July 13, 2020

Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of liberal Black Lives Matter activists are tormenting the teenage daughter of a slain police officer on social media.

On Saturday evening, Texas Police Officers Edelmiro Garza Jr., 45, and Ismael Chavez, 39, were shot and killed while responding to a domestic disturbance in McAllen. They were both fatally shot by the suspect as they approached the door.

“The officers never had a chance to suspect a deadly assault on them, much less death, at that moment in time,” McAllen Police Chief Victor Rodriguez said during a press conference about the shooting.

When additional officers arrived, the suspect shot and killed himself.

Savannah Chavez, the 18-year-old daughter of Officer Chavez, posted about her grief on Twitter shortly after the news broke.

“Words cannot describe the pain I’m in, but I’m glad my dad is at peace. you were an amazing man and anyone who ever came across you knew that. I’m going to miss you so much. you died doing what you loved most, you died a hero. i love you daddy, see you soon,” Chavez wrote in her heartbreaking tweet, along with photos with her dad.

Though most normal people responded to the distraught young woman with compassion and kindness, the left did not hold back on attacking her.

Many of the shocking and cruel tweets directed towards her were compiled and shared by the Nationalist Review. They included people saying that he “finally became a good cop,” now that he was dead, and worse. Others scolded her for daring to talk about his death, telling her “now is not the time or place” and to “read the room.”

Though she faced a barrage of cruelty, the young woman conducted herself with grace and dignity. It is clear that her father raised her right.


Dispatches from the war: Mr. Trump, you’re not Tom Paine

No guts, no glory

Jon Rappoport – No More Fake News July 13, 2020

(To join our email list, click here.)

Note to the reader: Don’t blithely assume the economy is reopening and things will continue to improve. The nation is under the control of public health traitors. They can declare “new waves” of cases. They can invent pretexts at the drop of a hat, and governors and mayors can declare lockdowns again. This is not over. The economic war against the people is being waged to destroy America.

You’ll see this week, as my controversial series of dispatches tries to reach out to the president, I’m suggesting that he break with hallowed tradition and send in troops (or the FBI) to the states and force open the economy, once and for all. Permanently.

I fully realize the dangers of such a move. I also realize what this economic war against the people and the country is doing to America. The news media are covering up the full effects. The nation is being driven off a cliff into chaos. That is the heinous plan. COVID is a pumped up lie and a gross exaggeration, formulated to enable the plan.

It’s a long night in the White House and a long night in America.

It’s a folded newspaper on a silver tray, and the headline screams: WAR, AND AMERICA IS LOSING.

You’re the president and you read it. You can’t not read it.

It’s 3AM and the moon is sitting in the sky. Lopsided. A blood moon.

The enemy hasn’t just landed on our shore. He’s in every community in the country. He’s inside the inside:

Every mom and pop store, every small and medium business in the nation is signaling frantically to you: WRECKAGE. WRECKAGE. WRECKAGE. WRECKAGE.

Is no one hearing those voices? Is it a silent movie? Just because the traitorous press refuses to cover it?

Mr. Trump, when are you going to fight the enemy? When are you going to declare the real state of emergency?

Millions of people who voted for you are on hold. They’re waiting.

They’re waiting for the cavalry to come over the hill.

You’re paralyzed.

In a state of war with the country fully invaded, with the economic devastation that has been visited on the land…

You’re surrendering to the likes of those two-bit vampires, De Blasio and Cuomo, to that blown-dry idiot, Newsom. The governors and mayors are taking you out.

That’s your destiny?

Who are you?

What’s the watchword and the battle cry in this crisis?

Is it Tom Paine? “THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.”

Or is it, “Order a contactless pizza from Domino’s”?

That once great city, New York, your city, lies in ruins.

Who, Mr. Trump, is the enemy? Who has stormed the beaches and swarmed into the cities and towns of this country? Who has taken down the engines of business?

Do you know?

You swaggered into the White House in 2017 like a two-gun cowboy, backhanding the press, talking fast, talking hard, promising to lift up the economy to soaring heights…and now you’re sitting in the Oval signing away trillions of dollars for a Welfare operation the likes of which the world has never seen. Trillions of air-guitar dollars, lunar dollars, out-of-the-sleeve stage magic dollars, Fed Reserve high-on-speed dream dollars, boiling frog dollars, Wizard of Oz rainbow dollars.

Dollars for a smoking wreckage of an economy, for the people who were working every day in that economy. Some of those checks are going out to people who have already committed suicide, who are now solidly addicted to booze and drugs, who are smashing apart their families, who are standing inside the empty dusty rooms and offices of their former small businesses, wondering what shuck and jive con leveled their survival and their legacy.

They’re being told by bright-eyed android news heads that “the reopening is proceeding.” What do you think their unedited response is?

Do you really think it’s “we’re all in this together”? Do you think they’re happily gnawing on that bone a gaggle of grinning PR devils tossed out the window of their cruising limos on the way to summer vacation houses?

You can’t worm out of this one, Mr. President. You’re no Tom Paine and no George Washington. You stood down and watched this storm hit. This dismantling. This economic invasion. This wrecking ball.

Do you know who the enemy is?

What are you going to do?

Millions of your supporters are waiting for your answer and your action. They’ve eaten as many of your tweet-calories as they can possibly handle.

They’re ready to sign on for the war and back you up, and but they can’t find an enlistment office.

Ten years from now, with the economy nationalized, with wage and price controls, with a permanent dole, with the hideous face of Pelosi or Hillary or Biden stamped on every digital dollar, where will you be?

And 50 years from now, when the history of this nation is buried under multiple layers of scrambled-egg obfuscation, some addled historian will write: “Donald Trump was once thought to have been the president of the United States, but he was actually a composer of a song, BACK IN THE USSR.

Unless you fight the war now, Mr. Trump. No holds barred.

These are times that try men’s souls. Who’s got your soul in a box?

Are you so dumb you can’t see it? He’s the gnome standing right next to you at press conferences.

He’s the front man for the blood moon.

Convicted Terrorist Susan Rosenberg Is On Black Lives Matter Fundraising Board

Carlos Christian — The Union Journal July 12, 2020

Susan Rosenberg, a convicted terrorist, is on the executive board of Thousand Currents, the group that delivers funding for Black Lives Matter.

A Literal Communist Terrorist!

In the 1970s and 1980s, Rosenberg was involved in the May 19th Communist Organization, a terrorist group that was behind multiple bomb attacks. The group also provided support to the Black Liberation Army, a black supremacist terror organization.

She was charged with being involved in the 1983 bombings of the Capitol Building, the USA National War College, and the New York Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, although these charges were later dropped in a plea deal by other group members. She was suspected to be involved with the 1981 Brink’s Robbery that resulted in the death of a guard and two police officers, and was also sought after in connection of the prison escape of Assata Shakur, a murderer and leader of the BLA.

Rosenberg was jailed for 58 years in 1984 for explosives possession, but was released on January 20th 2001, with her sentence commuted by outgoing President Bill Clinton. Now, 19 years later, is the Vice Chair of Thousand Currents. Rosenberg’s group “provides the legal and administrative framework” that lets Black Lives Matter “fulfill its mission,” in accordance with their web site.

Black Lives Matter Are Dangerous

Bernard Kerik, the former NYPD Commissioner, told Tucker Carlson about Rosenberg’s criminal past on his show on Fox News on Wednesday evening

Rosenberg “was a radical revolutionary… and now she’s out. Who does she work for? Black Lives Matter,” Kerik said. “We’re missing something here. I think the DOJ should be looking at Black Lives Matter as a terrorist organisation.”

“Black Lives Matter is a revolutionary Marxist group,” that he continued. “It wants to overthrow this government and this country.” We know this from their leaders, who are admitted Marxists, and today the people behind the scenes, including Rosenberg. Even if Black Lives Matter it self was seemingly unblemished, being controlled by way of a literal convicted terrorist, should make everybody concerned.


Young White Mother Executed By Black Lives Matter Mob for Allegedly Saying ‘All Lives Matter’

Infowars – July 12, 2020

A young white mother was murdered last week by a Black Lives Matter mob after she allegedly told them that “All Lives Matter.”

24-year-old Jessica Doty Whitaker was shot and killed in Indianapolis amid a confrontation with BLM thugs who were triggered when she told them “All Lives Matter.”

“According to the victim’s family, the shooting started with an argument over Black Lives Matter and language. Eventually the two sides separated and walked away from each other, until witnesses claim the killer opened fire from a nearby bridge and ran away,” Fox 59 reported last Monday.

“It was squashed and they went up the hill and left we thought, but they were sitting on St. Claire waiting for us to come under the bridge and that’s when she got shot,” said the victim’s fiancé Jose Ramirez.

Whitaker’s father Robert Doty told The Gateway Pundit that his daughter was shot in the head after responding to the BLM group’s “Black Lives Matter” chants.

Doty also said the mainstream media never bothered to reach out to him.

From The Gateway Pundit:

Her father, Robert Doty, told the Gateway Pundit that the BLM supporters had walked by her and her fiance and said “Black Lives Matter,” to which Jessica responded that “All Lives Matter.”

The BLM activists had allegedly pulled out weapons during the argument, which prompted Ramirez to do the same. This lead to them backing off, but not for long.

“An argument started and guns came out, but they worked things out. Unfortunately, they didn’t drop it and waited for them to walk back through and she was shot in the head,” Doty told TGP.

Doty confirmed that neither CNN nor Fox News has reached out for information about the case, despite the murderer being on the loose.

Police are still searching for the suspects, and have released footage from the area.

A GoFundMe has been launched to help pay for Whitaker’s funeral and take care of her 3-year-old son.

Vigilant Citizen – July 11, 2020

“It has Been a Long Time Arriving and it is Going to be a Long time Going.”

Smoking Mirrors – July 12, 2020

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
It’s getting more and more violent and chaotic by the day. In the corridors and seats of power there is an obvious distress and bizarre acting out taking place, whether it be in the political world, entertainment world, religious, or quasi-spiritual world and… they are all worlds, prominent members are losing their minds. You could say they are losing their grip on reality but they never had a grip. They have all been faking it, doing what they were told they could get away with because that was how it got done. Now… now… something new had entered into all of these worlds and it is shaking up the dream fabric that had been woven to validate the impostors. Illusion is time-sensitive. It has a life-cycle and it decays after a period of time, which it is doing now.
For those… and that means most people, who have little idea of what is going on and were mostly operating from programming, whether that be karmic placement, or present tense and past impressing of appetite and desire… or atavistic impulsing, fear-driven or… some-such of somewhat, they’ve mostly been in a robotic mode, after whatever time it took the effect of puberty to become perfunctory. Are you following me? See… here’s the problem; I can’t talk directly about this and I certainly can’t speak comprehensively, or else we would be here for a really long time. This is what compels me to STATE MY PERSPECTIVE and render you with the single option of TAKE IT or LEAVE IT.
Some of you have been coming here for decades and some are more recent. Of those who come here most often, you are either inline with what I present or you are seriously opposed, without realizing that you keep coming here for reasons you are unaware of. I couldn’t tell you how it is that I have come to know what it is that I know, as well as to be viscerally aware of what I do not know. This facility of discrimination is critically important, though most people don’t even think about it, even though it shapes both their life and their destiny, depending on whether they choose to exercise it or not.
I’ve been given certain abilities. Some of these are conferred (brought over from past visitations) and some of them are learned or earned during this recent passing through. I am like a plumber or an electrician. The only difference is that I work with the less visible aspects of tech. As a result, I have more often to work out of the intuitive capacity, rather than through empirical know-how.
There is a reason for my bringing this and sundry up today. In my mind, I can prove most all of what I say. I had to do so in order to believe it myself, to begin with. My belief in certain seemingly unprovable things is very strong at this point because I have had a long period of time in this go-round to see these things consistently prove out over time, again and again, and again and again to the nth power. I cannot prove what I can prove to those who are adamant in their resistance to what THEY DON’T WANT TO BE CONVINCED OF. There isn’t a great deal I can do about that, nor does it trouble me much BECAUSE I KNOW that TRUTH proves itself to all, no matter how great their resistance may be. Sooner or later they crumble before it, often in extremely painful circumstances.
How is it that people can get so arrogant about the truth of their lies and the self-awarded importance of their thoughts and spurious accomplishments? For the Purpose of Demonstration, certain personalities are given a good long run of success at lying, cheating, stealing, killing, raping, and subjugating at will. There is a cosmic design behind all of this and it reaches into a future no one but God and those so empowered by God can see and it emerges out of a past just as opaque.
I cannot emphasize the importance of one encountering bonafide spiritual teachers and illumined entities, great-souled ones, and the like. It doesn’t happen through luck. It seems that way to some only because they do not know from whence and through what those who seem spiritually fortunate have passed. One might say that even Grace, most of the time, has origins previous to and outside of the purview of most people.
This world is literally a madhouse. Just about everyone is crazy to some degree but the majority appear sane because they operate according to predictable patterns of behavior. One is not really sane, simply because they can fit in with whatever the doings of a particular time might be, especially if those doings are crazy, as they most certainly are at present.
The old world is crumbling away and not all the king’s men or his horses can put it back together. As it crumbles, so does the stability and sanity of those depending on it. Some of us know better than to depend on external conditions and circumstances. Some of us have been reduced to utter extremity MORE THAN ONCE, to convince us NOT TO DEPEND ON THIS WORLD OF APPEARANCES. It is akin to building your house on sand or out of straw, or whatever your preferred metaphors or analogies might be.
Most of the time you can’t tell people anything except what they want to hear and when what they need to hear is what they especially do not want to hear, well… yeah. Things are really ass-backward at these times. It seems like it is a wonderful event for one to become materially successful, or to be celebrated as a gifted artist when there is no gift present whatsoever, but which is presumed to be present because… well… you couldn’t be successful otherwise, could you? There is presently a good amount of successful innovators and sports figures and people of many a stripe of accomplishment, given how many of us are here. The world is overrun by celebrity and celebrity worship. Actually… success in these times is more often a pending detriment as we shall see. It’s really bad if you are in any sense an architect of present social conditions or cultural whatever…
I used to be very puzzled about why I was unable to succeed in various areas of endeavor. I knew I had the talent but my luck was atrocious. I had several people die just a short time before they were going to ferry me seriously upwards. I can’t even remember how many times seeming misfortune struck. I thought I must be cursed. Au Contraire; I was being protected. It is only in recent times that I have come to see how truly fortunate I have been. I am not capable of describing it. I got the hard-handed massage from the cosmos, little realizing to what end I was being formed and shaped. I’ve come to find that MANY of the people who come here have experienced VERY SIMILAR events and for very similar reasons.
Some of us get depressed and downhearted because of so many things not going right in our lives. We become cynical and self-absorbed. That is the real misfortune. All that has been happening is our being patterned by Heaven to adjust to a higher calling and awareness. Just as soon as we catch on and become co-pilots, the whole process becomes much easier. I am speaking from direct experience here. I was about as hard-headed as they come and talk about indomitable and relentless in the pursuit of my ends, I was surely that. God makes us strong in some very interesting ways, putting us up against all manner of oppositions and odds and NEVER for reasons that are revealed to us, or have much at all to do with what we think it does. One day we find ourselves well up a road we had no idea we were traveling on and with a magic bag of qualities that are the product of our finally having gotten a small idea of what is really going on.
The whole thing is crumbling and those who will suffer the most are those most invested in it. In many cases, all of their survival skills are based on the things that are crumbling. See… we are at the turning of the age. This happens every time it happens but we don’t remember any of that because it was a long time ago the last time it happened. It will all be better once the clutter is cleared and certain features are set into place. How long these better times will last, I couldn’t tell you. What I can tell you is that comeuppance is about to go down on a massive scale and that no matter what anyone is saying, none of them knows what is coming.
GOD IS REAL. This is something you need to tattoo permanently upon your consciousness. You NEED to get a visceral certitude about this because everything depends on what you think is real when the real wakes up inside of you. Fate and destiny are going to be accorded everywhere on the planet in individual doses of awakening and revealing. In many cases what is being revealed is very much not desired by those it is being revealed to and in other cases, it is going to be the very essence of a breath of fresh, clean air and cosmic remembrance. In many instances this means crazy is going to go ballistic, while in others it is going to mean a whole new kind of stable and sane and wonderful past telling. Certain eternal truths have been hidden from us for a good long stretch. They are going to be manifesting and activating shortly.
I was told that there is a peculiar planetary alignment coming up around this Christmas and having much to do with Christ reappearing and also bringing all of what we thought was coming on 2012 and other dates that have proven premature. I don’t know what to make of that and I don’t think most anyone else does either but be it Christmas time, with a real serendipitous irony, or be it somewhat before or after that, IT IS COMING and it’s going to be a little different, or exceedingly different for each of us and this is when our notions of what we previously considered misfortunes, or rousing successes are going to be stood on their heads and in some cases seriously rotated.
As has already been stated here, Take it or Leave it. I advise that the reader make every effort to get right with The Divine and to direct your every effort toward a greater degree of communication with the celestial forces. There is NO GREATER STABILITY that can be had than that eternal sanctuary that is found in the love for one’s creator.

Protests continue in Serbia against pandemic curbs

Kayhan Gul – Anadolu Agency July 12, 2020

Anti-lockdown protesters clash with police outside parliament on the second day of protests in Belgrade. Click to enlarge

Nationwide protests against the restrictions enforced by the government to stem the spread of COVID-19 pandemic entered the fifth day in Serbia on Saturday.

The protests, which began Tuesday evening in Belgrade have spread to other major cities including Nis, Kragujevac, and Novi Sad as well.

The demonstrations erupted after President Aleksandar Vucic on Tuesday announced the return of weekend curfew among other measures to combat the pandemic.

The National Assembly Building in the capital Belgrade again became the center of protest as a crowd holding placards gathered outside the building and raised slogans against the government.

Except for a small group of protesters, most of them returned to their homes before midnight.

Protesters in Nis attempted to block the highway between the capital Belgrade and Nis, the third-largest city in Serbia, and the administrative center of the Nisava district. But the police prevented the blockade and did not allow them to proceed towards the highway.

They continued protesting in front of the police line-up and offered flowers and the Serbian flag to the police.

“We are from the same nation. Put down your shields,” the protesters were heard telling policemen as they chanted slogans against President Vucic and his government.

Novi Sad also saw a protest march. The organizers said that there would be no protest in the city on Sunday. But people can join the protests in Belgrade.

Krusevac, Cacak, Vranje, and Zrenjanin were also among the cities where protests were held.

On the first day of the protests, demonstrators clashed with police while attempting to enter the assembly building as paramilitary forces cordoned the entrance.

The protesters were dispersed after long hours.

On the second day, the protests spread to the other cities, and many police officers and protesters were reported injured.

On the third day, police claimed having arrested 70 protesters. As many as 19 people reported injuries.

The world came together to build 5G. Now the next-generation wireless technology is pulling the world apart.

The latest version of the 5G technical specifications, expected Friday, adds features for connecting autonomous cars, intelligent factories, and internet-of-things devices to crazy fast 5G networks. The blueprints reflect a global effort to develop the technology, with contributions from more than a dozen companies from Europe, the US, and Asia.

And yet, 5G is also pulling nations apart—with the US and China anchoring the tug-of-war. Tensions between Washington and Beijing over trade, human rights, the handling of Covid-19, and Chinese misinformation are escalating global divisions around the deployment of 5G. A growing number of countries are aligning with either a Western or a Chinese version of the tech.

“National security and commercial interests are all entangled, and it’s very hard to separate them,” says Scott Wallsten, president of the Technology Policy Institute, a think tank.

The way 5G was created, and the way it is now being deployed, capture an ongoing conundrum for Western countries—how to balance healthy competition and collaboration with national interests and the rise of China.

The 5G dispute centers on Huawei, arguably China’s most important tech company, with a dominant position in networking equipment, a big smartphone business, and increasingly sophisticated chips. The company is accused of stealing technology and of having close ties to the Chinese government that might enable cyberespionage. It has become a symbol of China’s ambitions to dominate the technology, through innovation as well as nefarious means.

“National security and commercial interests are all entangled, and it’s very hard to separate them.”

Scott Wallsten, president, Technology Policy Institute

The US and some allies, including Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and Taiwan, have banned Huawei and other Chinese telcos like ZTE from their networks. Other nations have balked at US-led efforts to keep Huawei and other Chinese firms out of the picture. Argentina, Brazil, Russia, the Philippines, and Thailand, all welcome China’s 5G tech.

A key question is how this bifurcation will affect the workings of a standard that was meant to be open and global. “We risk further fragmenting the internet and the way different networks connect to each other,” says Wallsten.

Even if 5G was meant to be a truly global communications standard, the technical plans reflect shifting national strengths and resulting tensions.

Company Reported to FBI for Operating Online Human Trafficking Front

Joaquin Flores — Fort Russ News July 12, 2020

Wayfair reported to FBI. Click to enlarge

What is being termed a ‘conspiracy theory’ by access media emerged on Friday, touting that the Wayfair online store was using the sale of storage cabinets, pillows, and children’s related items, as a cover for child trafficking.

When asked for comment, a representative of Wayfair – a home decor company – immediately denounced as false.

However, a post on the social media website Reddit and others on Instagram, noted the irreconcilably high cost of the furniture — along with the fact that each item was identified by a female name.

But these weren’t just any female names, but the names of women who have been abducted in the past year. The cabinets were the same exact cabinet, but with different prices accompanying the different women’s names. 

What’s more, the prices aligned closely with what experts in law enforcement countering human trafficking have said is the going market rate for a teenage female abductee – about $10k.

The prices for the cabinets — some called Dunning, Duplessis, Alyvia, Neriah, Samiyah and Yaritza — ranged from $12,699.99 to $14,499.99 each, according to a screenshot posted in the “r/conspiracy” subreddit.

Samiyah Mumin, Samara Duplessis, Tori Dunning, as well as the other names, are girls who have been abducted and are still missing, as FRN has confirmed through a basic search engine query.

“Is it possible Wayfair involved in Human trafficking with their WFX Utility collection? Or are these just extremely overpriced cabinets? (Note the names of the cabinets) this makes me sick to my stomach if it’s true  ,” user PrincessPeach1987 wrote Thursday.

The post quickly drew more than 1,300 comments from the subreddit’s 1.3 million members, including the assertion that “the names are missing children.”

Since then, the information has already reached millions of Facebook, Reddit, and Instagram users within 24 hours.

Facebook and Instagram were suspiciously quick to censor these, with a ‘fake news’ or ‘misleading information’ tag, despite that there is nothing fake about the fact that the names match perfectly.  The prices are not the prices of cabinets (priced elsewhere for much less) but rather mirror human trafficking rates, and internet users did not misrepresent the website’s information nor were they wrong in saying that these were the same names of abductees. More to the point, there are not any cabinet names which are not the names of abducted women and girls. Finally, the FBI has been contacted and a report was made surrounding this, according to Redditer ‘SkydivingSquid who wrote:

Later we discovered different black cabinets with the same name/number sequence that were being sold between $9k – $10k. I suggested we report this to the FBI and they opened an investigation… Unfortunately, my friend called Wayfair asking about those cabinets yesterday and by the evening the items were gone…

However, nothing ever put on the internet or said on a cell phone ever goes away. The NSA and other intel agencies use massive hardrives to store billions of terabytes of information, of nearly every phone call or web-site ever made. They have been so in part under the provisions of the Patriot Act signed nearly 20 years ago.

This means that the FBI is yet to make any determination on the alleged connections, and the social media ‘warnings’ appear premature. 

What does Facebook/Instagram and Twitter know that the FBI does not? How were the two social media giants able to determine what the outcome of an investigation would be before it had been conducted? Is this a lack of concern for the facts and findings which law enforcement has not themselves made a determination on?

“i cant access the cabinets anymore, but i remember a cabinet called Samiyah for like 12K, which is also a missing child from this month!” user coffeeismymuse added.

In a statement, Wayfair said, “There is, of course, no truth to these claims.”

“The products in question are industrial grade cabinets that are accurately priced,” the company said.

“Recognizing that the photos and descriptions provided by the supplier did not adequately explain the high price point, we have temporarily removed the products from site to rename them and to provide a more in-depth description and photos that accurately depict the product to clarify the price point.”

However, this explanation seems unlikely as the same WFX utility cabinets have been available on Amazon for less than $300 – indicating that Wayfair was quick to give an answer at the expense of something more truthful.

In chat conversations with Newsweek, PrincessPeach1987 reportedly said they were “involved in a local organization that helps victims of human trafficking” and had become “suspicious most of the time now” as a result.

PrincessPeach1987 also characterized their initial post as less of a direct accusation and more of an effort to “see if anyone else had more details,” Newsweek said.

As of the late evening of July 11th, FRN confirmed on the Wayfair site that the information contained in now viralized screenshots – some with explanatory text by users written over later, unfortunately having the effect of making the images technically ‘altered’ – were indeed legitimate with many still on the Wayfair site. But internet sleuths have noted that a number of ad listings have been changed or removed in response to the public outcry.

Clinton Connection

Bringing more realism to the conspiracy is the fact that Wayfair Director Andrea Jung had been directly awarded by Hillary Clinton – a central figure in human trafficking conspiracy theories like ‘pizza gate’ which were lent credence by Wikileaks drops of emails – in 2010, with the Clinton Global Citizen Award.

For those following the White Rabbit, this piece is not only unsurprising but is the final nail in the coffin regarding the truth content of the conspiracy theory.

In FRN’s study of the surrounding allegations, there is also a tie to Ellen Degeneris, who is listed as a designer of one of the roughly $10k pillows, and Tom Hanks. Instagramers have claimed that entering in product codes associated with some items, along with a code he uses in an image in one of his own IG photos, sends search results on duckduckgo and yandex to images of very underage girls, often in suggestive poses, revealing clothes, or wearing beauty pageant makeup – hearkening images of JonBenét Ramsey.

These revelations will no doubt energize those focused on ending human trafficking, as well as provide a major boost to politicians and leaders who have taken up that cause.


Don’t sweat the small stuff

Irish Savant – irishsavant.blogspot July 11, 2020

Late in life I came to realise the value of not sweating the small stuff. No point in getting into a state over trivial annoyances. Reinhold Niebuhr had an even more profound insight: God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Genuinely, such an invocation does help you get through life in a less stressful way.
I try live by these precepts. But sometimes it ain’t easy. Very many years ago I fell in love with Jesus College Cambridge. The ambiance, the grounds, the stately buildings and echoing corridors. I’d love to have had an academic position there but despite having a PhD, a Post-Doctoral Fellowship and published a high-selling book in my field I wouldn’t have had a chance. Only the best of the best of the best are awarded a tenured professorship at Cambridge. And that’s after surviving the fabled back-stabbing of academic politics where lifelong friendships are transformed into lifelong enmities in the vicious squabble for spoils. Little wonder then that the dons, once ensconced, become bywords for arrogance and their fanatical defence of their academic independence.
You can imagine therefore what it takes to become the Master Of Jesus College Cambridge.

Unless you’re Sonita Alleyne who washed up in Britain from Barbados about 50 years ago. She eventually got a pass BA – be assured it was not in astrophysics – after which she started a ‘music publicity company’. And that’s the extent of her achievements. But, as I’ve always said, if you’re black, are not in jail and wear business clothes the world is your oyster. Alleyne’s pass BA and involvement with a small publicity company propelled her to unimaginable heights with a Fellowship of the Royal Society Of Arts and appointments to, inter alia, the Court of Governors at London’s University Of Arts and the BBC Trust (Governing Body). And now she’s Master of Jesus College Cambridge. Never published an academic paper, undertaken a research project or even taught students. And she’s now setting the academic direction for one of the world’s most prestigious Colleges. Alumni such as Thomas Cranmer, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Thomas Malthus must be spinning in their graves.
Now you’d imagine that having been parachuted in the most bizarre way into such a position Alleyne would keep her head down, cringing with embarrassment when chairing a meeting of intellectual powerhouses. Not a bit of it! Since her appointment she’s spent her time haranguing academic staff and the general public on the terrible bigotry that blacks labour under. On June 5th she published a message on the College web site: Yup, you’ve guessed it. George Floyd. “If one man can’t breathe none of us can breathe” (an assertion disprovable by a child) adding “Be angry at this moment”. When someone pointed out that June 5 was also the 20th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre Allenye was not pleased. According to The Spectator ‘she has forbidden the dons from speaking about the College’s relationship with China’ (my emphasis). Forbidden the dons! Oh deary deary me. I suppose only an affirmative action nonentity utterly tone deaf to university practices and traditions could come out with something like that.
So that’s why I blew a fuse this morning and why Niebuhr’s invocation went out the window.
I marvel at the treachery of Britain’s ruling class (I’m not referring just to the aristocracy here). They have sold out a glorious heritage, handing it over to unworthy and ungrateful foreigners who have no claim to it. Will some traveller in the distant future echo the words of Shelley as he surveys the impending wreckage?
What powerful but unrecorded race
Once dwelt in that annihilated place?



Illuminati Hoax? Nuclear Bombs Do Not Exist

“Ten countries in total have claimed to have nuclear weapons, and this is actually the scary part of the hoax, showing how major world governments collude.”
Disclaimer: I reserve judgment

by Brabantian — (henrymakow.com)

Quite seriously, nuclear weapons have never existed. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were only two more horrible urban napalm fire-bombings, less devastating in fact than the one that hit Tokyo five months earlier – but re-packaged with a fake story of a ‘new awesome weapon’.
August 6 & 9, 1945 began the biggest hoax in history, helping oligarchs steal trillions from hapless taxpayers.
Before detailing how Hiroshima was a fraud, consider that the mushroom cloud we associate with ‘nuclear blasts’, is an ordinary result of chemical explosions, as you see in the above photos of when factories explode.
The old ‘nuclear explosion’ photos and films are often obviously fake when examined now with modern tools, mixing a chemical explosion image with a background.
The devastation you see in Hiroshima and Nagasaki – where indeed tens and hundreds of thousands died or were horrifically maimed – is exactly like in Tokyo or other Japanese firebombed cities, because houses were mostly wood.
Swedish engineer Anders Björkman, born 1946, has worked to expose the nuclear weapons hoax for years, arguing they are technically impossible. Björkman’s website.

Actors, writers and producers warn of ‘reverse racism’ in the film industry

Creating a ‘toxic’ climate for anyone who is a white, middle-age man

Caroline Graham – Daily Mail July 12, 2020

As the wooden boards are taken down from shopfronts and studio lots grind slowly back to life, Hollywood is basking in an unseasonable heatwave.

The famous boulevards shimmer in 40C haze and warm Santa Ana winds fan the Beverly Hills mansions.

Shaken by #MeToo, paralysed by Covid-19, the $50 billion film industry is finally emerging from a four-month lockdown – only to find a new and very different world, where tension is rising as surely as the thermometer.

For if the very public Black Lives Matter protests have polarised America, the silent fallout has now reached Hollywood.

A revolution is under way. White actors are being fired. Edicts from studio bosses make it clear that only minorities – racial and sexual – can be given jobs.

A new wave of what has been termed by some as anti-white prejudice is causing writers, directors and producers to fear they will never work again. One described the current atmosphere as ‘more toxic than Chernobyl’, with leading actors afraid to speak out amid concern they will be labelled racist.

The first sign came with one of the most powerful black directors in Hollywood, Oscar-winning Jordan Peele – the man behind box office hits such as Get Out and Us – stated in public that he did not want to hire a leading man who was white.

‘I don’t see myself casting a white dude as the lead in my movie,’ Peele said. ‘Not that I don’t like white dudes. But I’ve seen that movie before.’

As one studio executive responded privately: ‘If a white director said that about hiring a black actor, their career would be over in a heartbeat.’ Few doubt it.

Peele is more vocal than most about his hiring policy, but his outlook is increasingly widespread. Dozens of producers, writers and actors have spoken to The Mail on Sunday about the wave of ‘reverse racism’ pulsing through the industry.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the executive confirmed that the climate is now toxic for any ‘white, middle-aged man in showbusiness’. Their careers, ‘are pretty much over’.

They continued: ‘We’re only hiring people of colour, women or LGBT to write, star, produce, operate the cameras, work in craft services. If you are white, you can’t speak out because you will instantly be branded ‘racist’ or condemned for ‘white privilege’.

‘The pendulum has swung so far, everyone is paralysed with fear by the idea anything you say could be misinterpreted and your career ended instantly. There are a lot of hushed conversations going on, but publicly everyone is desperate to be seen to be promoting diversity and too terrified to speak out. It’s imploding: a total meltdown.’

The failure to nominate actors of colour for the Oscars has been seen as a stain on Hollywood in recent years. But there are fears that the pendulum has swung too far in the other direction – and that the movie and TV industries are ‘on the edge of a collective nervous breakdown’.

The latest buzzword in Tinseltown is ‘Bipoc’ – an acronym for Black, Indigenous and People of Colour – and ‘Menemy’, which means a white, male enemy of the diversity movement. ‘Everyone wants to be able to check all the boxes for each new hire,’ according to one Oscar-nominated insider.

‘Directors normally have a say about who is in their project. Not any more. It’s all about ‘Bipoc hiring’. And it’s coming directly from the heads of the studios who know their jobs are on the line. White middle-aged men are collateral damage. They are the Menemy.’

The Hollywood of Marilyn Monroe’s time is long gone. Nonetheless it is still fondly remembered. Will the new politically correct Hollywood produce anything that will be recalled as warmly? Click to enlarge

An actor in his 50s who has worked on some of the biggest shows of the past 20 years described how, during a recent audition, the casting director told him he was ‘perfect for the part’ but that they had been instructed to hire ‘a person of colour’ for the role. ‘I get it, I really do,’ the actor said.

‘I understand Hollywood still has a long way to go before people of colour are properly represented on screen but how am I supposed to pay my mortgage, put food on the table? Everyone is terrified. And you can’t say anything because then you set yourself up for public crucifixion.’

Dismissing such complaints, however quietly expressed, Selma director Ava DuVernay, now one of the most powerful black women in Hollywood, wrote on Twitter: ‘Everyone has a right to their opinion. And we – black producers with hiring power – have the right not to hire those who diminish us.

‘So, to the white men in this thread… if you don’t get that job you were up for, kindly remember… bias can go both ways. This is 2020 speaking.’

It might seem an irony, then, that Hollywood has long been seen as the heart of liberal America. Leading figures from the industry have a reputation for lecturing the world on issues of human rights, diversity and the environment, from George Clooney’s campaign to end the genocide in Darfur to Leonardo DiCaprio’s missives on global warming.

But ‘wokeness’ is not only increasingly pervasive, it seems impossible to navigate. Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer – celebrated for playing a bisexual assassin – last week faced intense criticism on social media for dating US sportsman James Burke, said to be a card-carrying Trump supporter, solely on the basis that he supported the President.

And Halle Berry had to apologise for ‘considering’ taking on the role of a transgender man in a forthcoming film project (instead of leaving it to a real transgender man).

Such is the culture shift that one studio is now preparing to shoot a film with an all-black cast and crew – a project which should normally give cause for celebration.

But when a white woman, a highly respected executive, was tasked to ‘oversee’ the production on location, she was told she would receive no on-screen credit. A source from the studio behind the project said: ‘The kids making the film are fresh, great new talent. But they are kids. None of them are over 25. Most of them have never been on a movie set, let alone a movie which costs $20 million. They don’t know the basics about how union rules work, about taking regular breaks or how long you can shoot in a day.

We need to protect our investment and make sure they get up on time and shoot what they need. Otherwise, we could have a multi-million- dollar train out of control.

‘We’re sending this woman, who is brilliant, to run things on the ground. But she won’t get any title credit. People won’t admit it, they can’t admit it, but reverse racism is definitely going on. You could argue that it’s a good thing, that this swinging of the pendulum so far the other way is only fair after years of white privilege. But at what cost? Surely it is best for everyone if people are hired on the basis of talent and ability? I can tell you, we are hiring people based purely on their ethnicity, gender and social-media profiles.

‘If you are brown and female and gay then come on in. We’re all getting diversity training. We’re walking on eggshells during every Zoom meeting. It’s got to the point where, if there’s a person of colour in the meeting, we can’t hang up before they do, for fear of it being considered offensive.’

One film editor who did dare to speak out has seen his career all but destroyed. Nathan Lee Bush, who has shot commercials for corporations such as Budweiser and Nike, criticised a post on a private Facebook group which read: ‘I NEED AN EDITOR! Looking for Black Union Editors.’

Bush, who is white, described the advert as ‘anti-white racism’ and wrote: ‘Look what we’re asked to tolerate. The people openly and proudly practising racism are the ones calling everyone racist to shut them down, and anyone who dares to speak up is cancelled, their livelihood and dreams stripped from them by a baying mob.’

But voicing his concerns proved disastrous. One of Bush’s main clients, the US restaurant chain Panera Bread, vowed never to work with him again and Bush has since been forced to apologise.

‘I was literally just playing a video game when I casually wrote those words,’ he said later.

‘All I was trying to say is: ‘Is the antidote to past discrimination based on skin colour more retributive discrimination based on skin colour?’ I should have, however, realised this was not the time to bring it up. To anyone I offended, I’m very sorry.’

It has taken several tumultuous years for this perfect storm to gather. It began with the scandal over Harvey Weinstein and the #MeToo movement. Now, as one insider puts it, the industry faces a ‘tsunami which has turned everything upside down’. Some will say the change is overdue as, for all the warm words, Hollywood remains a privileged enclave.

Just five years ago, lack of diversity at the annual Academy Awards ceremony spawned the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite.

While last year’s box office hits – films such as Black Panther, Get Out and Crazy Rich Asians – were a huge success, their casts, predominantly black and Asian, were not represented in the major acting awards. This year’s winners – Brad Pitt, Joaquin Phoenix, Renee Zellweger and Laura Dern – were all white.

Then came Black Lives Matter spawned in the wake of protests over the killing of George Floyd in May after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes.

Demonstrations were held across America, the Confederate flag was burned and ‘racist’ statues toppled – while along the Hollywood Walk of Fame, protesters mingled with the (predominantly white) stars immortalised on the sidewalks.

Studios including Disney, Warner Bros, CBS and Netflix have shared messages of support for the BLM movement, and have vowed to spend millions to promote diversity and inclusion. New York Times writer Reggie Ugwu said: ‘The industry is in the clutches of an extremely public identity crisis in which the fresh, multicultural image it aspires to is undermined by the observable evidence.’

But while the intentions are undoubtedly good, many fear it will have the opposite effect. One Emmy Award-nominated white writer said: ‘I’ve never known people so fearful. Houses are being put up for sale. People are moving out because even when things get back to normal after the pandemic there’s going to be no work.’

‘It’s about fairness,’ another writer said. ‘I’ve spent the past three years mentoring young, black writers. But now I’m out of a job and it’s nothing to do with my abilities as a writer. People think of Hollywood as a place where dreams come true but for people like me, it’s turned into a nightmare.’

Ironically, although the movie’s stars were Black, the people who were behind the special effects that created Wakanda were almost entirely White. Will they be replaced? Or, as we suspect, will Hollywood’s decline accelerate with the aid of political correctness?
