If it looks fake, it probably is: the 2016 US presidential election bread and circus show just keeps getting more surreal, with camera trickery, photoshop fakery and much more.

The US presidential election just keeps getting faker the more it goes on. Yes, it’s bread and circus time again in America, but this time around the rulers are putting on an entertainment show which has lost its ability to convince and persuade. It’s just too damn fake. We know the US and many other Western “democracies” are rigged one-party states where all the major candidates are controlled, bribed and/or blackmailed. We know that US presidents are selected, not elected. In the 2016 US presidential election, we’ve witnessed all sorts of fakery right from the start. Hillary blatantly rigged the Democratic Primaries in several states (Iowa, Nevada, Arizona and California just to name a few). She colluded with the DNC board, led by the disgraced Wasserman-Schultz, to keep Bernie out of the nomination. Then, at the DNC convention, she pulled out all the stops with a grand display of riggery and fakery, including paying people to sit there to hold her signs, playing white noise machines to drown out protests, having DNC officials turn off the lights above Bernie supporters to plunge them into darkness and all sorts of other dirty tricks . . .

“Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” ~Unknown proverb
War is murder, no matter how you try to justify it. Taxation is theft, no matter how you try to codify it. Statism is tyranny, no matter how you try to rationalize it. No amount of justification, codification, and rationalization will get you off the hook for murder, thievery, and tyranny. The only solution? Stop justifying, codifying, and rationalizing murder thievery and tyranny. It can only be resolved from the ground up; never from the top down. Meaning: it begins with you. It begins by recognizing how individual thievery can become collective tyranny . . .
Yours is a police state where the number one goal is the protection of your “property.” Your police enforce the delusions of those with lots of pieces of green paper. Those green papers represent all the fish you have stolen and hung over the people’s heads as debt: an abstraction of an abstraction. Everyone “owes” you something. And both the police and the general populace, all recipients of your plunder and power, are content with the scraps of fish trickling down from your gold-plated dinner table. You eat, and you eat well. What does it matter that the world is bleeding and dying at your feet? . . .
“Countless incidents of conflict ignite every hour of every day, while the media shows Europeans greeting the invaders with song, bonbons, and balloons, tearfully grateful to be overrun and eliminated by the aliens…”
The Rape of Europe can be seen as a myth in progress today, a real-time narrative clearly mirrored in current events. Our intention in this essay is to bring that narrative into modern expression, as enacted in historical realities, and draw from it an imperative call to action.
The invasion of Europe by hordes of ‘refugees’ from Africa, the Near East, and other parts unknown, proceeds at a ferocious pace as we write these words. Sob stories in the Jewish-run liberal-leftist media attempt to wring compassion out of troubled Europeans who witness wave upon wave of human detritus washing up in their countries. Countless incidents of conflict ignite every hour of every day, while the media shows Europeans greeting the invaders with song, bonbons, and balloons, tearfully grateful to be overrun and eliminated by the aliens…

In the words of the great critical thinker Michel Foucault, it is time to ‘excavate’ the foundations of our political, social and economic systems and identify the out-dated assumptions that lie at the heart of them. Then we can, one assumption at a time, discern if they seem to be timeless and true; or false and failing…
There is a war going on right now, as you are reading this.
It is a war that all of us are participating in, whether we know it or not.
And it is a war whose stakes are so high that the very future of our economy, our environment and our children’s lives depend on the outcome.
This battle is a battle for ideas — the beliefs and values that govern how the entire world works. And the only way to join the battle is to question your own assumptions and make sure that what you believe — about yourself, the world, and the connections between the two — fits what you feel in your deepest core. You, me and everyone else who cares about our shared future as a species must do this if we are to thrive ourselves; and ensure our world thrives too. As William Blake said: We “must create a system or be enslaved by another man’s.”

“…militarized police and swat teams indiscriminately murdering innocent civilians without consequence; the environment getting trashed by geoengineering and radiation while the media and authorities won’t even acknowledge it is happening; and all the while psychopathic fascist war mongers murder millions in their march to conquer the world under the Orwellian banner of democracy and freedom supposedly against their own completely fabricated, amorphous threat of terrorism.”
What’s with this anything goes atmosphere we’ve been swept into when it comes to governmental, economic and societal behavior?
What happened? How did this darkened, backwards world become the “new normal” everyone seems to have accepted, with nary a whimper of complaint? Where did this come from, and in what world are we now living?
It’s very much like being in a well lit room when someone waltzes in and hits the dimmer, which before you know it has been gradually turned down to almost zero visibility.
And apparently the tables were turned when the lights went out.
Our Current Dystopian Nightmare
Governments do as they please without regard for due process of law or public opinion, never mind the consequences; bankers run roughshod over nations and populations with abject impunity, extorting everything they can get and then insist they get bailed out – and are; Wall Street and corporations openly cheat, steal and manipulate with complete abandon and in plain sight with zero accountability.
