Politics are a disease of the mind

I don't want to beat a dead horse here, but I will anyway.

It seems like there is some kind of almost-revolution going on lately in America. On one hand, you have the crazy clamp-down of the conservatives and on the other, the finally recognizably coherent audible wails of protest from the liberals. During the first 2 years of Bush's war, it seemed that people were happily getting in line to goose-step their way to a more secure homeland (with a few "paranoid" murmurs in the background). How quickly things have turned regarding 911. Why, I remember, it seems just yesterday, the people who were screaming "foul" were nothing more than paranoid internet conspiracy theorist kooks! Even the outspoken media rebel, Howard Stern, was calling 'em all "crackpots." And yet, now, if you listen to Stern, he seems just as infected with this "dementia."

Let's go back to when things were more normal in America, just about a decade ago... Tipper Gore's PMRC was a failed joke, legalized abortion was a done deal, people's bare asses started showing up on primetime television and the media was "too damned liberal" for a handful of very vocal fatheads who appeared on boring political shows very few people even cared to watch. This was a time when arguing about ideology almost seemed like a frivolous waste of time in a land where everyone was becoming more and more free... and who had time to argue about nonsense when there was fun to be had and money to be made?

Does anyone remember when all the major internet sites blackened their screens in protest to proposed internet censorship legistation? That was about 10 years ago, too.. Things were different back then; most everyone took their freedom for granted and leftist political activists were considered annoying nutjobs or simply immature and uniformed. Global warming wasn't really an issue, right? It was just a bunch of hippy alarmists mucking around. This sentiment that everything was "a-okay" seemed to have lasted right up through George W. Bush's "s/election." It seemed that most people were content to presume all the votes were counted and it was just paranoid to believe an election could be stolen in the "land of the free" with so many people to keep their eye on things.

Well, it seems like, all of a sudden, people just really started distrusting the media and authority in general. I wonder what took so long. It's natural to rebel against authority! That's why we have the Bible; to explain and restrain this natural inclination.

And yet, while some people are freaking out about it (ie. Howard Stern) and some people are doing something about it (ie. Al Franken), it still seems like most people are acting like nothing is really going on. The common man is too busy trying to find work and the more elite (media class) are doing the same! Not since Reagan have I seen such wonderful political comedy on my boob tube-- and it is a boob tube: as I suckle at the teat of Mommy Media, I ingest whatever nourishment she can possibly produce from such a poor, steady diet of garbage and poison. What's my alternative? Am I to turn myself invisible and travel around the globe, spying on politicians and bureaucrats? Mommy Media is all I've got. Whether she's "liberal" or "conservative" media, I really only have two options to consider: I'm either for or against something I have no control over; whatever Mommy has to give me.

And as "...Uh, Reverend D. Morton" pointed out while commenting on a previous blog entry of mine, the media is all about "getting the story first"-- Print it FIRST (justify your job as a newsperson), ask questions later (reevaluate your worth as a newsperson)... And, by the way, later, it all becomes too convoluted to figure out, anyway-- all according to plan! We take it for granted that we are being lied to, anyway, don't we? We just choose the side we believe is probably (hopefully) lying the least. But, we're full of shit, too. Our egos choose our political affiliations and our egos are always "right," aren't they? This is politics in it's most basic form.

And, yeah, America is a nice place to live, so it's easy enough to just say "fuck it" and go with the flow, however disruptive it may be to our peace of mind and our way of life. Maybe we lost a great computer job and now we work at a hotdog stand, but we still have to get by in society, don't we? We have our OWN lives to worry about. Let the media worry about policing our country and our government (whatever they tell us, we'll react to accordingly)-- and let our government worry about policing the world (whatever they tell the media to tell us, we'll react to accordingly). This is why so many people were content to accept the fact that Bush "won" the election: "Yeah, it was close, but come on, how many times can you recount the votes?" <--- complacency, acceptance... but, really, what else are you going to do but accept it? Make a fool of yourself (and possibly a target) by demonstrating against the government? Come on, we all know that when a peaceful protest gets rowdy, it's all thanks to the government agents who dress in civilian outfits, join the protest and then start trouble, thereby contaminating the political voice of the people who (technically) are supposed to have some say in a "We The People" type democracy such as ours. We The People don't have the power, we simply have the lives the power controls. Our government was meant to be small and simple, but that government has spread its wings over the years, signing thousands of bills and expanding into areas never intended by the originators of our government. This didn't happen under a blanket of secrecy, necessarily (although plenty of it did), but through a facade of honesty: the media: "journalstic integrity."

Want to control a gang of outlaws? Exploit them in the media, then suddenly stop all coverage of their actions. The outlaws will suddenly think their time has passed. (ie. 60's motorcycle gangs, LA gangs, etc.).

I am reminded of something my grandfather said. He was a man who died before I ever met him, but I remember that my mother (a Christian freak) used to quote him fondly (as if he was the biggest genius of all time), "'The day we can see people in our own living rooms, talking in boxes, the end of the world is near.'" Of course, she would say this whenever something really "indecent" was on television, something that really upset her. And it was as if my grandfather was Nostradumbass or something to her: she firmly believed that Satan was the "king of this system of things" and that Armageddon was coming.

Strangely, I see this attitude all over the internet, even among people who are not religious freaks. I see the words all over the place in sympathy with Apocalyptic sentiment: "the media, media, media... control, control, control... evil, evil, evil..." Flashes of John Carpenter's "They Live" flicker throughout cyberspace. The Illuminati! The Bohemian Grove! Etc. Etc.

Well...

Let's put it all in perspective. This crazy idea might not be so crazy after all, but it just may not be so "evil" or Apocalyptic, either.

Think about it: politics are shit. Yes, we all can get caught up in them, but when really inspected closely, they are shit.

Now, people will scream, "POLITICS ARE NOT SHIT! POLITICS ARE IMPORTANT! YOU HAVE TO GET INVOLVED OR IT WILL BE YOUR FREEDOM THAT'S TAKEN AWAY!!!" And they will mean it. They will mean it whole-heartedly. The reason people care so much about politics is because LIFE is politics; governmental politics are only every-day life on a grander scale.

And that is perhaps why my grandfather in fact was a genius of Nostradumbass proportions. The most important part of a political debate is NOT "who is right." A political debate is just like any other argument: what the thinker thinks, the prover proves. Both sides of the debate can argue for centuries and neither will actually "win" the debate. But with the magic of TELEVISION, it does not take centuries to win a debate! It takes only days of instantaneous idea-transmission via propaganda. What is important in politics is simply how many people you can get on YOUR SIDE. It is simply a war. And it can simply BECOME a war, with physical violence and everything. And with television, time does not move so slowly. It does not take long to rally people around a political cause. It does not take long to find yourself in a physical war, thanks to television... much faster than newspapers, western union... or carrier pigeons.

All of this POLITICS is simply a rebellion against authority. Either side refuses to accept the other's authority and, in the end, one side will win (temporarily). However, to FULLY win, in the most extreme scale of "winning," one side simply must become TYRANNICAL. And, just as simply, that tyrannical figure then takes position as "authority" and sets itself up to be overthrown. It is a cyclical, natural cycle. Politics is shit. Time-delayed cyclical, natural shit. Just as fertilizer feeds the plants, the decaying politics of the elders feeds the next generation.

Jello Biafra once sang, "Anarchy sounds good to me 'til someone asks, 'who'll clean the sewer?'"

I will clean the fuckin' sewer. Happily. Until the sewer mafia breaks my legs and takes over my territory, anyway (ie. NYC's first janitorial service imported from Vermont).

Carlos Castaneda is PURE CRAP!

About 10 years ago, when everyone was reading The Celestine Prophecy, most of us knowing full well that it was nothing more than fiction, I read or heard somewhere that, "if you liked Celestine Prophecy, you'll love Carlos Castaneda's 'Don Juan' series." So, I guess it was 10 years ago that I bought the first book in the series. As I remember it now, it was "okay," but didn't prompt me to go out and buy more... nor do I remember it being the "real deal" at all, but mainly about the ingestion of different drugs.

Well, recently, I saw references to Castaneda's "Journey To Ixtlan" twice (the 3rd book in the Don Juan series) by 2 people whose words I actually respected, Tom Marshall and Ramsey Dukes (keep in mind, neither Tom nor Ramsey said "Journey To Ixtlan" was a great book or anything, they were simply referring to it. So, last night I picked it up at Borders. Man, am I glad the cashier pointed out that I can return it within 14 days for any reason for a full refund. I will be returning it later today, after work.

As soon as I started reading it, I thought, "This guy is lying. He's just telling a story. This is supposed to be real or something?" I read the first 4 chapters, then I flipped to the end of the book and read the last 3 chapters (these are the chapters which deal with the "reality" of Carlos Casteneda's experience of "stopping the world" without drugs of any kind, meeting a spirit coyote and all other sorts of horseshit. Naturally, at the very end of the book, Carlos has the opportunity to "tackle his ally", but decides not to. I suppose an ally is supposed to be like your Holy Guardian Angel or something, but after a brief discussion with Don Juan and some other Done Genero (sp?) dude, Carlos decides he's just not ready for such a freaky, sad ordeal. Of course not! Either he's saving it for a future book in the money-making series, or else he realizes that he doesn't want to claim this level of spirituality, since he couldn't back it up with any real experience or knowledge. It has to be quite an ordeal to keep all your lies straight throughout a series of 10 books or so.

Man, this was the most obvious bullshit I've ever read-- and I've read A LOT of occult literature. Wow. I am actually shocked that people recommend this book (or any of Carlos Casteneda's books). I'm not EVEN going to finish reading it for kicks.

If you're one of the people who has been duped by this man, check out this fascinating website which gives a blow-by-blow of his various lies and explains where he got his ideas from.

Total conman. I think I remember Howard Stern making fun of him, now that I think about it. Carlos was charging a fortune for some bullshit "magical passes" class or something like that, as an old man trying to make ends meet.

Jon Stewart, The Daily Show & The Bohemian Grove / Club (Cult?)



(For all you knee-jerk trained monkeys out there, the Bohemian Grove event and the Bohemian Club is not "just a conspiracy theory.")

I recently heard Jon Stewart of the Daily Show mocking a book that referenced the Bohemian Grove / Club (cult?). I forgot the title of the book, but it had something to do with politics and it probably mentioned the fact that most of the important, powerful politicians and business leaders are part of this Bohemian Club and their strange, secret ritual they perform. Jon Stewart is a guy I like with a show I enjoy (and I agree with many of the views presented on the show), so I was a little bummed when Jon said offhandedly, "... sure, if you believe the politicians get together and worship a large stone owl!" (audience laughs).

Well, the truth of the matter is that this is what they seem to be doing. I don't know if they're really worshipping the owl or what, but the lame thing here is that Jon Stewart wrote the notion off completely without realizing that actual video exists of the event and that, despite the media's total ignorance of the Bohemian Club, it is completely and totally real... it just seems unreal.

Now, I didn't set off looking for info on the Bohemian Club. I was actually just trolling around for more information on the Temple of Set, after discovering that Edred Thorsson is a member of the organization. I learned, to my dread, that the Temple of Set was formed in 1970 by an (apparently) actual child-molesting Satanist named Michael Aquino. I'm not kidding when I say "child-molesting Satanist." (Take a look at the court transcripts presented below). Most educated people "know" that Satanists don't really molest children or any of that nonsense, but in this case it appears they would be wrong. Michael Aquino was a member of the Church of Satan and buddies with Anton LaVey (who formed the Church of Satan). The details of Michael Aquino's child-molestation case are quite damning, if not alarming.

As I researched the Temple of Set more, well... things got more interesting as I suddenly found myself reading about the Bohemian Grove ceremony. Now, this is not a conspiracy theory. This is a real event which the media totally ignores. Basically, the richest and most powerful people in the world, including several US Presidents (if not all), go to Bohemian Grove in the middle of all these gigantic California redwood trees where they dress in red, black and silver robes and burn a human effigy to a giant stone owl (CLICK FOR PHOTO).

Now, I was already familiar with the Bohemian Grove thing, but hadn't given it much thought before I realized they performed this bizarre ritual and, like so many occult organizations, remain so very secretive. I had figured that rich and powerful pukes meet in secret all the time; it's called a business plan-- and ALL business wants to "take over the world." But, there is something very odd about the most powerful figures on the planet acting like a prehistoric mystery cult.

A man named Alex Jones actually videotaped the Bohemian Grove ritual with a secret digital camera. It is a real event, the important and powerful attendees freely admit it and now we have video proof of the event. You can even order the film online (details to follow...) to view with your own eyes.

BUT PEOPLE STILL DON'T BELIEVE IT. WHY? Yes, it seems unbelievable and one would certainly wonder why the heck they're sacrificing a human effigy to a giant stone owl, but believe it BECAUSE IT'S TRUE, even if you don't understand it.

Then, I found the following thread on Memes.org. The thread was started by someone who simply posted a picture of the front of Alex Jones' video with the title: "Alex Jones :: Is he on Crack?" As you can see, people (like Jon Stewart) just think you're a kooky loon for simply speaking the truth! (When was the last time a crackhead videotaped a sacrifice to a giant stone owl? And how is the physical evidence of a videotape somehow indicative of your crack-smoking mental state?)

What I thoroughly enjoyed, was the response this thread got from "Adam Kaboom" using a Disinfo email address.

Following is the thread:

"Alex Jones Has Blown Bohemian Grove Wide Open!" - John Sergeant, World of Wonder, UK Channel 4

"This is like something out of a Hollywood movie, where teenagers are out camping in the wilderness and come over a hill and witness some devil cult in black and red garb sacrificing some poor soul on a bloody altar." - Alex Jones


THE REPLY FROM ADAM KABOOM:
"Re: Alex Jones :: Is he on Crack?

he may be on crack but i used to live about 15 miles from bohemian grove...with a member of the rosicrucians...

the closest incorporated town of any size is santa rosa - spanish for saint's rose...about 20 miles away

it lies an hour north of san francisco

an hour south of san francisco is santa cruz...spanish for saint's cross...the rose and the cross...rosy cross...rosicrucian...

in the center of this geographic cross, in san fran, is a monolithic scottish rite masonic temple...of course a little to the southeast is the rosicrucian museum...

bohemian grove, retreat for the world's most powerful "dignitaries" and prostitution central...

lots of actors perform there and what i can say about that is that there are lots of theater performers living on the russian river and at harbin hot springs that perform at the northern california renaissance faire...lots of mdma...the ***** and tell drug...possible mossad activity in the area...

any kind of drug you can think of can be found here, on the russian river...russian river road turns into mark west springs road...which goes up to lake county...home of harbin hot springs...www.harbin.org...you can drive as fast and as crazy as you feel like on this stretch because cops WILL NOT pull you over...cuz you might be transferring methamphetamine and they want that to occur...

in lake county california, near middletown is an indian reservation of pomo indians where many of the people that died at the jonestown massacre used to live...jim jones used to live in ukiah, before moving to guyana...which happens to be about an hour north of bohemian grove...harbin is an hour northeast of bohemian grove...

many of the US govt's infamous MKULTRA ops took place in this masonic stronghold i am detailing here...one of the people that was strongly implicated in MKULTRA hearings in congress is michael aquino...founder of the temple of set...off shoot of the church of satan...which was founded in marin...aquino also was tried for child molestation and despite enormous amounts of evidence against him...he is free...

why?

because US army psyops still finds him extremely useful...i was subjected to psyops in aquino's backyard for most of the past two years...lots of satanists distributing LSD there...and methamphetamine, mostly...

when we read about different supposed programs of mind control, the monarch method most closely resembles the techniques i was subjected to...

assassins are glorified in this area...mythically...

i am a stewart...so i read up on the family background...found out it was stewarts that gave the templars refuge from the pope in the 13th century...as they fled "infected" with hashishin memes...hashishin is the word that hashish and assassin come from...the hashishin, in alamut, were a radical psyop oriented sect of the ismaili muslims...

the templars are the precursors to modern day skull and bones sects...why do you think the illuminati are attributed with so many assassinations...ok..so i put this all together myself and in a santa rosa book store i suddenly run across a book entitled Templars and Assassins: Heaven's Militia and guess what i found out...that michael aquino has done a very positive review of this book...

ok...aquino is said to have a fascination with nazis...from his garb to his methods...operation paperclip was the op that landed many german intelligence and propaganda specialists in american army uniforms within a few weeks of the end of WWII...remember that scottish rite temple i mentioned? well if you drive north on the road on which it sits, the road turns into the Presidio which is the street aquino lived on when he was charged with child molestation and when he ran a US army day care center...perfect place for the abduction of homeless people [lots of forced s&m stuff in the area] and when i first moved to the russian river, a woman told me that many abductions of homeless people and prostitutes occur in the area and she mentioned the temple of set and she also spent a lot of time counseling women who had been victims of this...she was too vocal...she is in jail on a tax violation...

my mother came over from germany in 1951

why did i end up in all this?

for having the nerve to father Jam Echelon Day...remember that?

why was i targeted with this particular combination of ops?

well...to either get me to join them in some intelligence capacity, playing on my loyalties to the stewart-templar link and the nazi link...

or

to get me to think that even my parents are in on this, thus increasing likelihood of my psychological destabilization, thereby separating me from the people i love for various reasons...

they needed to discredit me and i think they actually attempted to drive me crazy...

by the way, i am not on crack...

For your own enjoyment, check out the memes.org thread here and see the other replies from dopes who still can't put 2 and 2 together and see everything from the all-too-easy perspective of a "modern rationalist."

Now, as for the REST of Alex Jones' material, it may just be "conspiracy theory" and it certainly seems too insane to be real, but as for the Bohemian Grove video in particular, this is the real deal and it can be ordered from http://infowars.com/videos.html.
