The articles below come with the usual and standard caveats (is this disclaimer really necessary at this point?)
An international Man lives and does business wherever he finds conditions most advantageous, regardless of arbitrary borders. He’s diversified globally, with passports from multiple countries, assets in several jurisdictions, and his residence in yet another. He doesn’t depend absolutely on any country and regards all of them as competitors for his capital and expertise.
Living as an international man has always been an interesting possibility. But few Americans opted for it, since the U.S. used to reward those who settled in and put down roots. In fact, it rewarded them better than any other country in the world, so there was no pressing reason to become an international man.
Things change, however, and being rooted like a plant - at least if you have a choice - is a suboptimal strategy if you wish to not only survive, but prosper. Throughout history, almost every place has at some point become dangerous for those who were stuck there. It may be America’s turn.
For those who can take up the life of an international man, it’s no longer just an interesting lifestyle decision. It has become, at a minimum, an asset saver, and it could be a lifesaver. That said, I understand the hesitation you may feel about taking action; pulling up one’s roots (or at least grafting some of them to a new location) can be almost as traumatic to a man as to a vegetable.
As any intelligent observer surveys the world’s economic and political landscape, he has to be disturbed - even dismayed and a bit frightened - by the gravity and number of problems that mark the horizon. We’re confronted by economic depression, looming financial chaos, serious currency inflation, onerous taxation, crippling regulation, a developing police state, and, worst of all, the prospect of a major war. It seems almost unbelievable that all these things could affect the U.S., which historically has been the land of the free.
How did we get here? An argument can be made that things went bad because of miscalculation, accident, inattention, and the like. Those elements have had a role, but it is minor. Potential catastrophe across the board can’t be the result of happenstance. When things go wrong on a grand scale, it’s not just bad luck or inadvertence. It’s because of serious character flaws in one or many - or even all - of the players.
So is there a root cause of all the problems I’ve cited? If we can find it, it may tell us how we personally can best respond to the problems.
In this article, I’m going to argue that the U.S. government, in particular, has been overrun by the wrong kind of person. It’s a trend that’s been in motion for many years but has now reached a point of no return. In other words, a type of moral rot has become so prevalent that it’s institutional in nature. There is not going to be, therefore, any serious change in the direction in which the U.S. is headed until a genuine crisis topples the existing order. Until then, the trend will accelerate.
The reason is that a certain class of people - sociopaths - are now fully in control of major American institutions. Their beliefs and attitudes are insinuated throughout the economic, political, intellectual, and psychological/spiritual fabric of the U.S.
What does this mean to you, as an individual? It depends on your character. Are you the kind of person who supports “my country, right or wrong,” as did most Germans in the 1930s and 1940s? Or the kind who dodges the duty to be a helpmate to murderers? The type of passenger who goes down with the ship? Or the type who puts on his vest and looks for a lifeboat? The type of individual who supports the merchants who offer the fairest deal? Or the type who is gulled by splashy TV commercials?
What the ascendancy of sociopaths means isn’t an academic question. Throughout history, the question has been a matter of life and death. That’s one reason America grew; every American (or any ex-colonial) has forebears who confronted the issue and decided to uproot themselves to go somewhere with better prospects. The losers were those who delayed thinking about the question until the last minute.
I have often described myself, and those I prefer to associate with, as gamma rats. You may recall the ethologist’s characterization of the social interaction of rats as being between a few alpha rats and many beta rats, the alpha rats being dominant and the beta rats submissive. In addition, a small percentage are gamma rats that stake out prime territory and mates, like the alphas, but are not interested in dominating the betas. The people most inclined to leave for the wide world outside and seek fortune elsewhere are typically gamma personalities.
You may be thinking that what happened in places like Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, Mao’s China, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, and scores of other countries in recent history could not, for some reason, happen in the U.S.. Actually, there’s no reason it won’t at this point. All the institutions that made America exceptional - including a belief in capitalism, individualism, self-reliance, and the restraints of the Constitution - are now only historical artifacts.
On the other hand, the distribution of sociopaths is completely uniform across both space and time. Per capita, there were no more evil people in Stalin’s Russia, Hitler’s Germany, Mao’s China, Amin’s Uganda, Ceausescu’s Romania, or Pol Pot’s Cambodia than there are today in the U.S. All you need is favorable conditions for them to bloom, much as mushrooms do after a rainstorm.
Conditions for them in the U.S. are becoming quite favorable. Have you ever wondered where the 50,000 people employed by the TSA to inspect and degrade you came from? Most of them are middle-aged. Did they have jobs before they started doing something that any normal person would consider demeaning? Most did, but they were attracted to - not repelled by - a job where they wear a costume and abuse their fellow citizens all day.
Few of them can imagine that they’re shepherding in a police state as they play their roles in security theater. (A reinforced door on the pilots’ cabin is probably all that’s actually needed, although the most effective solution would be to hold each airline responsible for its own security and for the harm done if it fails to protect passengers and third parties.) But the 50,000 newly employed are exactly the same type of people who joined the Gestapo - eager to help in the project of controlling everyone. Nobody was drafted into the Gestapo.
What’s going on here is an instance of Pareto’s Law. That’s the 80-20 rule that tells us, for example, that 80% of your sales come from 20% of your salesmen or that 20% of the population are responsible for 80% of the crime.
As I see it, 80% of people are basically decent; their basic instincts are to live by the Boy Scout virtues. 20% of people, however, are what you might call potential trouble sources, inclined toward doing the wrong thing when the opportunity presents itself. They might now be shoe clerks, mailmen, or waitresses - they seem perfectly benign in normal times. They play baseball on weekends and pet the family dog. However, given the chance, they will sign up for the Gestapo, the Stasi, the KGB, the TSA, Homeland Security, or whatever. Many seem well intentioned, but are likely to favor force as the solution to any problem.
But it doesn’t end there, because 20% of that 20% are really bad actors. They are drawn to government and other positions where they can work their will on other people and, because they’re enthusiastic about government, they rise to leadership positions. They remake the culture of the organizations they run in their own image. Gradually, non-sociopaths can no longer stand being there. They leave. Soon the whole barrel is full of bad apples. That’s what’s happening today in the U.S.
It’s a pity that Bush, when he was in office, made such a big deal of evil. He discredited the concept. He made Boobus americanus think it only existed in a distant axis, in places like North Korea, Iraq and Iran, which were and still are irrelevant backwaters and arbitrarily chosen enemies. Bush trivialized the concept of evil and made it seem banal because he was such a fool. All the while, real evil, very immediate and powerful, was growing right around him, and he lacked the awareness to see he was fertilizing it by turning the U.S. into a national security state after 9/11.
Now, I believe, it’s out of control. The U.S. is already in a truly major depression and on the edge of financial chaos and a currency meltdown. The sociopaths in government will react by redoubling the pace toward a police state domestically and starting a major war abroad. To me, this is completely predictable. It’s what sociopaths do.
The Ammon Bundy group, currently operating 30 miles outside of the Burns, Oregon, has been the victim of the most heinous and effective takeovers in the history of the media.
The Ammon Bundy group along with their presence in Oregon, threatens to expose a terrible agenda of oppression and governmental abuse being perpetrated against the American people and in particular the ranchers and the farmers in the West.
In an attempt to control the narrative, CNN and Fox News have been the only media organizations that have not either been physically taken down or neutralized through the infiltration by covert government operatives, many of them from the CIA.
To date, The Common Sense Show has been the only organization outside of Fox and CNN that has effectively covered the Ammon Bundy-Hammond Ranch controversy in a first-hand manner. And this coverage of the Hammond Ranch Affair did not occur without a severe price being paid by The Common Sense Show (CSS) and its related partners.
Sunday, January 10, 2016, Katy Whelan, the health reporter for the CSS, made contact with a relative of Ammon Bundy. As many of you already know that both satellites that carry my show, the phone lines, the listen by phone option and all supportive operations of my satellite provider were taken down one minute before the scheduled interview was to begin. Adding legitimacy to this conspiracy to hide the truth behind the real events in Burns, Oregon, Ammon Bundy and his colleagues simultaneously had every form of their communications taken down at the same time. One would have to be one “helluva” coincidence theorist to not make this connection.
On the following day (January 11), the CSS and Ammon Bundy used alternative communication methods and we were able to get beyond censors of the federal government and produce the Dave Hodges/Sheila Zilinsky interview with Ammon Bundy. Below, is a link to this interview. It begins after 20 minutes into the show and lasts for almost 40 minutes. In this 40 minutes lies the only honest account, to date of what is really going on Burns and what Ammon Bundy and colleagues are really trying to accomplish.
The events are threatening to every American, not just ranchers and farmers in the West. The BLM and the EPA are starting with the ranchers and farmers but they are working their way towards all of us, even those of us who live in densely populated urban areas. All of us will soon become victims of this tyranny. The CSS will be exposing the full extent of this plot in a future article.
As an aside, when I became involved with the events in Burns, Oregon, Zuckerberg and his minions have banned me from Facebook.
There is a plot so massive, so corrupt and so well-orchestrated that nearly every member and organization connected to the Independent Media is impacted. Many of us in the Independent Media speak about this frequently amongst one another. Many of us ignore these attempts to infiltrate our organizations in an attempt obfuscate the truth and to control the narrative. And those that ignore this threat find their organizations compromised to the point where a scant few believe in what they are saying and doing. Believe me when I say that all of us in the Independent Media have had to deal with these attempts to engineer a “hostile takeover” of our operations.
Many of us in the Independent Media have tightened up our organizations in an attempt to protect our operations from being compromised. We speak amongst each other about limiting access to ourselves and our organizations to those with whom we absolutely trust and know their respective backgrounds. Simply speaking from my circle, I trust Steve Quayle, Doug and Joe Hagmann, Dr. Ted Broer, Sheila Zilinski, Paul Martin, John Moore, Randy Yarbrough and a few others. Remember, this is only my small part of the world. There are many others deserving of the public’s trust. I am only speaking about my small group of trusted colleagues.
To those truth-seekers who truly desire real news with no political agenda, you need to support the operations of those that have stood the test of time. Everyone of us in the Independent Media who are under constant assault, know the following to be true:
Everyone knows that six globalist corporations owns 98% of the media.
Everyone knows that government shills infiltrate the Independent Media.
Everyone knows that Biz-Ops sponsors ads which reveals that DHS pays many of these infiltrators $18 per hour, so they are not getting the best and the brightest.
Everyone knows that many of those that penetrate the Independent Media have dubious personal backgrounds.
Everyone knows that many of those that infiltrate the Independent Media have criminal backgrounds and avoid jail time by being “turned” by the authorities in order to silence government critics in a concentrated effort to control the narrative.
There are journalists in the Independent Media who are willing to lay down their lives to bring you the truth. The public’s challenge is to determine who is telling the truth. Along those lines, I feel I am stepping out onto a steep ledge with a monumental drop off as I am about to report the following:
THE CIA IS ON THE GROUND IN BURNS, OREGON. THEY ARE POSING AS MILITIA MEMBERS. THEY ARE HARASSING LOCALS AS THEY ARE TRYING TO GIVE THE BUNDY GROUP A BAD NAME. THEY HAVE INFILTRATED THE BUNDY CAMP. THEY ARE INVOLVED WITH THE IDAHO III%’ers. THEY ARE GATHERING INTEL WHICH WILL LEAD TO A TAKE DOWN OF THE BUNDY GROUP.
Harney County Fire Marshall, Christo Briels resigned his position after discovering undercover CIA agents posing as militia members near the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. According to Briels, he found CIA agents who were impersonating militia members, as they were harrassing locals and lurking around the town’s armory. Briels went to county Judge Steve Grasty and was told to shut up and keep his distance. Grasty would not have told Briels to shut up about the FBI presence in Burns because everyone already knew the FBI already had established a presence. Therefore, I have concluded, as has Sheila Zilinsky, that Grasty and Briels were discussing the CIA, which matches my source. Grasty would not have cared about the mention of the FBI because they were already there. Grasty would have had no cause to expel Briels from their meeting unless they are speaking of the CIA. But wait, there is more.
Sheila Zilinsky interviewed Christopher Briels. According to Sheila, Briels identified the infiltrators as CIA and continued to do so throughout the course of the interview. As Sheila made it clear that their conversation was an interview, Briels changed his story from CIA agents infiltrating the situation on the scene to FBI agents at the scene. Everyone already knew that FBI agents were on the scene as they were videotaped with the Idaho III%ers. Briels told Sheila that his life was in danger and his flip flop between the CIA and the FBI speaks to this point.
Both Mr. Grasty and Mr Briels better learn that if you are on the list, you better be on top of the list. These two need to discover their manhood and start speaking the truth. They represent the abused ranchers, or at least they should.
It is known and expected that the FBI would be on the scene in Oregon in order to bring about a resolution to this drama, one way or another…
I have learned that it is indeed the CIA on the scene. This is most unusual in a domestic dispute. However, the CIA has a vested interest in controlling the narrative. Why? Because as I have pointed out before, the CIA is involved, domestically, with Chinese and Russian troops on our soil. As I have previously documented, the CIA and the DHS are involved with Senator Harry Reid and his sons to defraud ranchers and hand their mineral rich ranches to the federal government so they can plunder these resources on behalf of their foreign partners and other related interests. I know for a fact that CIA forces are taking uranium from the Hammond Ranch as I write these words. I have also previously documented how uranium was being taken from American sources and deposited into an trust held by Hillary Clinton and that a Canadian front group was facilitating the deal. Clinton was handing over the uranium to the Russians and receiving campaign donations for her trouble. Most did not want to listen, but these events are coalescing in Burns, Oregon as I write these words. This is why the CIA is on the scene to control the narrative. This is why the CIA took my show down last Sunday because they did not want Ammon Bundy to tell his side of the story because it is so radically different than what is being portrayed on Fox and CNN. This plot now involves the Russian media and they are attempting to control the media by parroting and then distorting what Sheila Zilinsky and I are reporting. This will be fully exposed in the next part of this series.
In my next article, I have revealing the intimate details of this plot, God Willing.
He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent away empty. – Luke 1:53
A great many people attend church and Sabbath school, where the blessings
of grace abound, and yet are “sent away empty.” They are not fed. They do
not carry anything with them from all the fullness before them. They are no
better,no stronger, no happier for the privileges they have enjoyed. Is it the
minister’s or the teacher’s fault? No; the fault must be their own. They were
not really hungry, or they would have been filled.
A lady was ill with consumption. She was advised to go to Florida to spend
the winter. She wrote home glowing letters about the salubrious climate, the
wonderful foliage, the luscious fruits. While it was midwinter at her old home
in the North, it was summer where she was. She spoke of the table, — how
it was covered with all manner of tempting fruits. But in every letter she wrote
there was one sad lament: “I have no appetite. If I only had an appetite, I am
sure I should soon grow well amid such luxuries.” Then in a little while word
came that she was dead, — dead in the midst of abounding plenty, not for
want of food, but for want of appetite.
So it is with many souls. They live amidst abundance of spiritual provision.
God spreads full tables before them continually. They sit down besides them,
and then are sent away empty; not because there is nothing there for them,
but because they have no hunger for such things. Others sit close by them,
at the same tables, with the same provisions before them, and are richly fed,
and go away rejoicing in strength and hope, and refreshed in all their nature;
but these came with spiritual appetite. Our constant prayer should be that God
would make us hungry for himself. The beatitude is, “Blessed are they which
do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.”
