In the year 1440, the Gutenberg printing press became a reality. A seemingly insignificant invention completely changed the societal structure of western Europe in the next few centuries. A mechanical movable type printing technology introduced an era of mass communication. This transcended borders and informed the masses launching the Reformation and the Renaissance. The printing press threatened, then destroyed the existing power structure of the Holy Roman church and monarchies. The ability to publish cheaply and quickly let the idea of classical liberal thought to thrive. The environment set the stage for the American Revolutionary War and the ending of slavery. It created an information revolution. That revolution took centuries. Today the internet creates a new information revolution. This revolution is moving a hundred times as fast, and is ten times as powerful. The information revolution rolls on and the establishment and their minions are in panic.

When I served as the GM of two popular bars in Atlanta for three years, my employees knew they could ask me anything. One of my better employees asked what frustrated me the most in management. My reply was that being lied to insulted me the most. A lie is disrespect, it treats a person as though they are stupid. What is true in business is also true in my personal life. I made a choice back around that time to turn off the TV. The mainstream media produces a non stop stream of lies and propaganda, and it was getting worse by the month. More and more I read alternative blogs and watched various YouTube channels. These produce better stories with factual information. They were debunking the mainstream media propaganda.
Today we have multiple important issues going on and the mainstream media misreports on all of them. The press portrays Donald Trump as a pervert while ignoring Bill Clinton’s previous sexual assault and rape accusers. Black Live Matter strokes racial tensions to an all time high with a false narrative driven by the media. America’s military faces off with Russia on a daily basis in Eastern Europe and Syria, while the mainstream ignores that our actions make us the aggressor. On the financial channels you hear of an imaginary economic recovery because the Federal Reserve manipulates the stock market. Continue reading “DEBUNKING THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA PROPAGANDA”
In 2008 I watched the collapse of the economy and the start of the Great Recession. I knew the bankers loaned money to people who couldn’t afford to repay the loans. At the time I largely blamed the government regulations and the ending of Glass-Steagall for the mess. I blamed the Federal Reserve policy of low interest rates, but still thought the Federal Reserve was part of the federal government at the time. I waited for the lines of bank officials to be marched into court and be prosecuted for fraud. Instead the government bailed out the big banks and no one went to jail. It took years for me to figure out what happened after the biggest fraud in global history occurred. It was the silent coup, and the big bankers became untouchable.

On a daily basis I scan the headlines of the mainstream media. Most of the news articles I see are distractions from the important problems facing our country. To see the important news, I instead have to turn toBreitbart News, ZeroHedge, and Drudge Report. I see more of the important news on these sites, and less of the distractions. One distraction subject does come up because it is becoming increasingly important and dangerous. Russia is a dangerous distraction.
The American government and Obama administration are labeling Russia as a dangerous threat to our interests. Vladimir Putin is not what I consider any better than other politicians around the world. He was a high ranking KGB officer in the brutal regime of the USSR. As the Russian President and Premier, Putin rules with strongman tactics. Putin is suspected of assassinating rivals and critics and is accused of corruption within Russia, but still pales in comparison to the crimes of the Bill and Hillary Clinton. He’s a politician and bureaucrat which equates to a corrupt man. Continue reading “RUSSIA IS A DANGEROUS DISTRACTION”
Growing up an intelligence brat travelling the world for fifteen years made classified a daily word. I knew my parents worked for a classified organization. It was so classified that I knew it was linked to NSA, but didn’t know its name until I was in my twenties. There were questions I could ask that I knew they would not answer. At the same time, they tried to make me understand their world without crossing a line. That kept raising the same question repeatedly in my mind. Classified, why are there so many secrets?
It is a tough question to analyse. Now in my forties I think I have a far better grasp on the answer. Some things are classified to protect identities and sources of information. Others are classified to be stored ammunition against an enemy for future use. Then others are classified to keep our government or an allied government from being embarrassed because of incompetence. More are classified to hide the outright illegal and sometimes heinous actions approved by our government. Continue reading “CLASSIFIED, WHY ARE THERE SO MANY SECRETS?”
Monday night I watched the Trump versus Clinton debate. The debate started out much as I expected. Trump began to dominate with free flowing rebuttals to Hillary’s scripted talking points. Ten minutes into the debate, moderator Lester Holt began to team up with Hillary to repeatedly interrupt and question Trump’s background and his facts. The debate became Trump versus Clinton and the moderator.
An hour into the debate I became frustrated enough to turn it off for five minutes. I then turned it back on to watch the conclusion. Several things struck me as odd throughout the debate, so I decided to get some sleep and re-watch it. It almost appears that Lester Holt colluded with Hillary Clinton on the topics covered in the debate. He colluded in attacking Donald Trump on his past positions and his facts. Continue reading “TRUMP VERSUS CLINTON AND THE MODERATOR”
Last night I watched news from Charlotte NC blow up my Twitter feed for a second night. Tuesday Sept 20, 2016 a black man, Keith Scott, 43 was shot and killed by Brentley Vinson, 26 a black police officer. This shooting occurred when Scott would not drop his hand gun when repeatedly ordered to do so. The officers were called to the scene to address another issue. On arrival they found Scott getting out of his car holding a handgun. Scott refused to drop his gun after repeatedly being ordered to and the officer shot him four times. This is the official story, and is yet to be proven absolutely accurate. Black Lives Matter, America’s ISIS took to the streets hours later despite this evidence.
The reason I would call Black Lives Matter, America’s ISIS is that they really don’t need the truth or confirmation. Their aim is to create chaos, destruction and terror by agitating an already angered community. Continue reading “BLACK LIVES MATTER, AMERICA’S ISIS”
In 1998 I took a vacation to go fishing with my dad who had just retired. For thirty-five years he worked as an intelligence operative. When he retired he ran the Africa, Middle East desk which he took after running the former Soviet desk. I got curious and asked him if he missed his job. This was when “it doesn’t fit the political narrative” really sunk in and made sense to me. It made me understand that the government deliberately lies through media proxies to mislead the population to drive political agendas.
He looked at me with that look, I knew he was trying to figure out how to reply. So much of his life and work was classified and this made him careful of how much to say.

On Sept 16, 2016 I was surfing through the numerous news sights, mainstream and alternate when a story caught my eye. The main gasoline pipeline that supplies the southeast sprung a leak and a state of emergency was declared. I got a sudden feeling of deja vu. September, the economy getting worse, and a gasoline shortage, the last this happened was 2008.
Instantly my brain switched back to thinking of 2008. Everything had been running strong as the housing market collapsed. People were spending freely and my choice to step out of management to return to waiting tables in a popular steakhouse seemed correct. I worked twenty less hours a week and made about the same amount of money. Smart people in the restaurant and bar industry picked places to work carefully. In the right place, you could sell a few hundred thousand dollars a year and that equated to a healthy tipped income. Continue reading “DEJA VU, A SOUTHEAST GAS SHORTAGE AND THE LAST TIME THIS HAPPENED”
When I find time to sit down and write, I have the same struggle. It is not a struggle to find a topic, but it is struggle to choose a single topic from the mountain of corruption surfacing in America today. With the election looming in two months, I decided to take a look at recent and current events to ask a question. Is the fix in?
The last fifteen months have been packed full of political drama. The two biggest surprises came from Bernie Sanders on the left, and Donald Trump on the right. The political pundits and talking heads scratched their heads on the rise of these two figures. I’ve laughed at a lot of articles written stating confusion at Trump and Sanders popularity. It was simple, the average America is tired of being lied to. article here Continue reading “IS THE FIX IN?”
