Americans have bent the knee to......

Postby Peter Kropotkin » Thu May 13, 2021 8:32 pm

I have been reading an interesting book... "Grand Hotel Abyss" by
Stuart Jefferies.....

it is about the lives of the Frankfurt School.. Walter Benjamin, Theodor
Adorno, Max Horkheimer among some examples....

and the part of the book I am reading is right after the War.. WW2..
and it talks about the attempts to understand why the masses didn't
fight Nazism.. it in fact, the bulk of the country bent the knee to
Hitler and Nazism...and that was financed by big corporations and
wealthy individuals who own the corporations..... every single revolution
in the 20th century has been paid for by big corporations.. including
the communist takeover of Russia...that truth is very inconvenient for
everyone involved, so it is whitewashed out of history books...
recall "the victors write the history books"

and I am trying to tie the current rush to dictatorship under IQ45,
to the German "problem"...how was Hitler possible given the leadership
of Germany? or said another way, why did the people, the educated people
like Heidegger follow a two bit con man?

the first thing you need is a scapegoat, someone to rally the people against....
and you can have as your scapegoats, Jews, blacks, Muslims, Liberals,
women, people of color, the poor, minorities, sexual orientation... second step
is accuse your scapegoat of choice as being anti-whatever it is you are selling.....
the message of the Nazi's was that the German nation and the "chosen" members
of that nation are "special" and above reproach...the point is to sell this viewpoint..
and that marketing campaign and it is a marketing technique, requires money
to sell... and that is where the money of big business comes in...and the resources
of big corporations...big corporations got to be big corporations by their
advertising and marketing campaigns...the big corporations offer up their money
and skills at advertising/marketing to sell the big lie, to sell the alleged superiority
of the "Aryan" or sell the "stop the steal" or to sell the "hate the Jew" marketing
campaign...each and every one of them well financed and well produced...
and that takes money and effort and skills.. all of which is offered by
the big corporations and what do the big corporations get out of it?

they think they are going to have a seat at the table making decisions,
they get massive tax cuts and virtually no oversight, and most importantly,
they believe it will maximize their profits....

so the well financed and well produced attack on liberals as communist/socialist
is nothing more then a well done advertising/marketing campaign.....it is no
different then selling soap or cars or Disneyland...the exact same techniques
are used for selling cars and selling the false narrative that liberals "hate"
America...it is a marketing devise... promoted best by Joseph Goebbels..

to tell the big lie, tell it often and with great authority....and if you tell it often enough,
people will start to believe you....

and that is why advertising is ongoing and relentless... you have to tell that lie often enough
so people will start to believe you...

now the right wing types around here, all practice the big lie.. but they aren't the
starters of the big lie, no, that goes to those the big lie helps....so when
UR/observe or wendy tell the big lie, they are just repeating the big lie
which was sold to them by... faux news and Breitbart and bitchute....
big corporations who plan and participate and likely pay for the big lie...

so when someone here repeats the big lie, they are simply bowing the knee
to big corporations that have sold their soul to have a seat at the table....

In his book ‘Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution’ economist and historian Antony C. Sutton concluded that wealthy international interests invested in many movements leading up to the Second World War in order to profiteer and maintain a monopoly on the global acquisition of wealth. Sutton cites J.P. Morgan, T. W. Lamont, John D. Rockefeller, Chase and Manhattan banks, and Kuhn, Loeb and Company as the Bolsheviks’ benefactors. One central figure of finance of key members of the Bolsheviks is Jacob Schiff head of the Wall Street firm Kuhn, Loeb and Company, who was thought to have given loans and paid the expenses of Leon Trotsky.

Evidence of such financing is present in the writings of Trotsky, he wrote of receiving sizable loans and “travel expenses” from “wealthy friends” [1]. Such claims were corroborated by the grandson of Jacob Schiff, who in 1949 told the New York Journal that his grandfather had given $20 million to the triumph of communism in Russia. The Russian Revolution was largely sponsored by outside influences from Wall Street to British Ambassadors. Wealthy financiers from Britain, America and Germany backed the revolutionary socialists in an effort to destabilise the Russian Empire. By destroying Russia as economic competition, these benefactors could enable the exploitation of a Russian corporate socialist system by international interests.

K: as if we really needed any evidence of this....

I've heard this theory before. Let me add a couple points of interest. If the intent of the financers... or I should say expectations of the financers... was to cause economic collapse and stagnation in Russia, they would have had to exclude the possibly that the revolution do the opposite of collapse and instead, send Russia light years ahead of amnerika in a future they didn't bet on happening.

So that's strange already; financing a revolution that might accidentally go right and foil your plans, seems like a dumb risk.

Nuther point. Even if this is true, it would be silly to think any of the Russian revolutionaries were in on it. If they were, then they were some of the best actors in the history of the world, because if that wasn't genuine concern and passion for marxism, I don't know what could be.

Supposing it's true, Trotsky, Lenin and any of the Bolsheviks couldn't have known their financers had nefarious purposes.

It's all true. It has been written about for decades by other Professors including Bill Clinton's mentor Carroll Quigley and found to be true in a couple of congressional investigations -- the best one being the Reece Commission (sometime in the 1970's). The Reece Commission found the Rockefeller, Carnegie and Ford? (I think it was Ford) foundations had supported the mostly Jewish Marxists when they fled Germany and set up their U.S. operation in Columbia University. The Marxist professors re-wrote all the social, economic and political texts through Marxist eyes and the capitalists bankrolled the publishing and distribution into the schools. Today we see the fruit of these decades of indoctrination.

Quigley befriended many of the wealthiest people in America. He shared their belief in the Anglo-American empire but his main gripe with this secretive cabal was that he believed the public should know about them so wrote about what he found in their records. They were furious and broke off all contact.

Quigley was Bill Clinton's mentor. Bill liked what he read and mentioned Quigley after he won the Democratic Nomination and again after he won the Presidency. Now why would anyone mention one his old professors at the two most important times in his life? It was obviously a dog whistle to the the monied-class who helped him get there. He was letting the rest of them know where he stood.

Remember, it was Bill Clinton who moved the Democrat Party right, deregulated media ownership which saw something like 50 media companies merge into 6, pushed NAFTA (continuing the de-industrialization of America), gave China 'most favored nation' status which gives them priority over other nations, and it was Bill Clinton who removed the Glass-Steagall Act that separated commercial banks from investment (casino) banks and led to the 2008 crash.

And let me remind you that Hillary was caught on a hot mike saying she wanted Wall Street to regulate themselves. She joked that she had to have a 'public face' and a 'private face' -- in other words she promised Wall Street goodies but offered her votes nothing: no minimum wage, no universal healthcare, no education debt relief, no affordable housing -- nothing. Just an empty "I'm with Her" slogan. Why Democrats think the corporate Democrat Party is there to serve them is beyond me....?

Then we have Obama. Obama studied at Columbia Uni (Marxist HQ) and also worked for the people who bankrolled the Marxists. Mr Hope and Change Obama’s first decision was to fill his cabinet with Wall Street people. His second major action was to disband Occupy Wall Street. Yep, the only time in recent history when both the left and right joined forces to face their REAL enemy, Obama disbanded them and told them to go home.

To help the bankers and MIC corporations, Mr Peace Prize Obama went on to bomb 6 countries and at one stage ran out of bombs. At the time, Libya was the most prosperous country in Africa. Gaddafi shared his wealth with his people subsidizing everything from housing, vehicles, weddings and food. But, to the anger of the western bankers, Gaddafi had organized an African Union where African nations were to have their own banking system and share their resources and wealth separately in an effort to get out of the debt trap set by western banks. Obama was told to get rid of him and he did. Today, Libya is one of the poorest countries in Africa, it has a sporadic civil war and black slave markets have sprung up.

Obama also allowed fracking, opened up drilling in Alaska, militarized the police, handed over trillions of dollars to the banks, separated children who tried to cross the border, built the cages to put them in and sent twice as many illegals back than Trump did. He did dozens of other ‘right wing' things his Wall Street backers demanded but the left still love him. Now THAT is brainwashing. Our controllers are master manipulators.

The right is no less brainwashed. The conservatives refuse to believe the billionaire corporate, media and technology capitalists are the ones pushing the 'woke' cultural Marxist disintegration of America from within. It would behoove them to remember it was the conservatives (Nixon/Kissinger) who began de-industrializing America by shifting American factories and jobs to China. It was the ‘capitalist’ billionaires who handed their systems, methodologies, technologies, and sometimes their intellectual property over to the CCP and allowed them to compete without being restricted by workplace and environmental laws the west are forced to follow.

None of this makes any sense unless you realize that in order to introduce the ‘Great Reset’, the powers-that-be must destroy existing structures, patriotism and alliances of the old nation-state world. Primarily, Trump and Putin were hated for one thing: both were nationalists. Both were against merging their countries into this ever-expanding capitalist/Marxist monstrosity. THIS is why they were ceaselessly attacked, and THIS why millions of people were manipulated into a deranged, psychotic hatred for them that had little to do with reality.

What's my point? The left/right, Democrat/Republican, communism/capitalism paradigm is theatre. The psychopaths who run the show want power; they don't care about silly ideologies and labels; they're above all that. The left/right party system is for the little people. It's to keep us divided, keep us distracted, keep us fighting and make us feel like we we have a voice while in the background, the real controllers shift us into a one-world government that channels wealth and power away from citizen up to unelected, unaccountable foreigners in the UN, WB, WHO, WEF and a host of other international agencies.

True. Even more than most people think.

Once upon a time… money was backed by real property (precious metals, land etc). Theoretically, you could take your paper notes to a bank and exchange the notes for gold of equal value. Today, that paper note (or computer digit) is based on nothing but a belief that it has value.

When the U.S. government needs billions of dollars they go to the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve is NOT a government agency. It’s a cartel of privately owned banks and this cartel of private banks simply add digits to their computers and then sends the newly created ‘money’ to the U.S. Treasury to dole out. The U.S. government is then obliged to pay back that fake money to the private bankers who created it out of thin air and they’re obliged to pay it back with real money (tax money) plus interest.

The policy where banks are allowed to lend out more money than they have in their reserves (deposits) is called ‘fractional reserve’. Depending on the type of bank, banks are allowed to loan out around 9 to 36 times the amount they have in deposits. So, not only is there no gold backing the currency, but it’s not backed by cash deposits either. Something like 97% of all currency in circulation has been printed out of thin air.



PS: For those who are interested in real conspiracies (not theories), check out books and videos on Jekyll Island and the Federal Reserve. Jekyll Island is an island off the coast of Georgia where the now infamous secret meeting between the top bankers in the early 20th century met to capture and control the U.S. financial system by creating the Federal Reserve. After years of fighting to get control of the U.S. money supply, the cartel eventually succeeded in 1913.

Well, I’ve been at it for a long time. I grew up with a dude who was the son of one of the three most powerful crime bosses in Australia. I wrote about it on ILO (iloveopinions.com) some years back. This triumvirate was responsible for turning ad hoc criminal gangs into organized crime syndicate with tentacles in every major institution. Key politicians, police, judiciary, clergy, union bosses and business were all in on it.

Some of the things I saw - and friends I lost - really screwed me up but it wasn’t the murders or even the pedo rings that disturbed me the most; it was having my world model turned upside down -- not knowing who were good and who were not. What screwed me up was brutally coming to realize that the real power lies in a parallel network of people underneath the official public channels. I’m not talking about a few bad actors sprinkled throughout the institutions, I’m talking about the superstructure itself. The very foundations of our systems are corrupt to the core.

What most people see is the Truman-like facades. They believe what they see on TV is actually news when it’s really nothing more than ‘programming’ (their word) designed to make us fear, hate and respond in a particular way.


The next few years are going to be full on. They're frantically rolling out what they call The 4th industrial revolution and plan to have it set up by 2025 (4 years away). The 4th industrial revolution is a data-driven, block-chain, global network where algorithms increasingly take control over our lives and automation takes control over our jobs. The 4th industrial revolution also includes fully developing biotech – merging man with machine starting off with wearables (phones/watches) and moving to insertable (upgradable chips inserted in the body)

There’s a ton more coming down the track but I don’t have time to go into any of it in detail. I’m setting myself up to be in the best possible place when this totalitarian technocratic surveillance state rolls out. Ten years ago I moved to the country in preparation for what they had in store for us and I've been lucky not to have been in ‘lock down’ or have to wear a mask but it's going to become a lot more invasive so it’s time to unplug from the grid even more. Apologies if I take ages to respond.
