Michael Savage, “The Savage Nation”: Bilderberg Group Not Important

Filed under: Media Bias Exposed,Secret Societies • ToBeFree — Jeff Fenske @ 9:53 am

“Thanks for the call. You’re 100% wrong.”

Why Does the World Feel Wrong? “I had assumed that the people who wield power feel similarly about moral issues as I do”

Filed under: Lying • ToBeFree,Psychology • ToBeFree — Jeff Fenske @ 2:32 am

From: Strike the Root

Consider these events:

1. A president who started two aggressive wars, who bears responsibility for the loss of thousands of American lives along with hundreds of thousands of Iraqi and Afghan lives, leaves office as a free man without a felony record or any negative repercussions.

2. Meanwhile, the same populace that has intimate experience with lying politicians appears utterly smitten with a smooth-talking new president promising change and demanding sacrifice.

3. The Congress, which had an approval rate of 14% and which just passed a $700 billion bailout over the objections of a majority of Americans, had a re-election rate exceeding 95%.

4. Untold millions of Americans voice support of military troops as these very people are needlessly killed, injured, and separated from their families and productive work at home.

5. A general populace believed that buying unproductive assets, like housing, could make them wealthy, forever, without any coherent explanation why.

6. Researchers who pursue alternative explanations for AIDS and cancer get their funding cut and have the results of their research squelched, while others who try to improve life by providing healthful foods find themselves under attack.

Overt criminality by leaders and passive, unclear thinking by the proles have become the norm. The two go together, creating a symbiotic ecosystem of tyranny. Fraud, theft, and murder have become widespread, just as the scale of lies told and believed have reached new heights. Irresponsibility has become socialized while people in the honest pursuit of good get thwarted.

Those of us who want little more than peace and freedom don’t run the world. Pursuing freedom contradicts controlling others, so we can reason that people who pursue power have some motivations separate from our own.

I have not fully comprehended the implications of this until recently. Despite all the evidence to the contrary, I had assumed that the people who wield power feel similarly about moral issues as I do—I just couldn’t see why they commit and justify unethical behavior. I already knew that states operate according to a code that the rest of us don’t follow in our own lives. Nevertheless, I assumed that a man who acts without regard to moral laws must feel guilty about it. Then, one day, I stumbled onto this idea: Suppose he doesn’t.

With only small ambitions, he probably behaves like a common criminal, a predator. He lies to gain advantage, uses force to get his way, and steals without conscience. Not feeling guilty about unethical behavior motivates him to instigate further criminal acts.

New Legislation Would Authorize FEMA Camps In U.S.

From: Infowars

A new bill introduced in Congress authorizes the Department of Homeland Security to set up a network of FEMA camp facilities to be used to house U.S. citizens in the event of a national emergency.

The National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645 mandates the establishment of “national emergency centers” to be located on military installations for the purpose of to providing “temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster,” according to the bill.

The legislation also states that the camps will be used to “provide centralized locations to improve the coordination of preparedness, response, and recovery efforts of government, private, and not-for-profit entities and faith-based organizations”.

Ominously, the bill also states that the camps can be used to “meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security,” an open ended mandate which many fear could mean the forced detention of American citizens in the event of widespread rioting after a national emergency or total economic collapse.

Many credible forecasters have predicted riots and rebellions in America that will dwarf those already witnessed in countries like Iceland and Greece.

With active duty military personnel already being stationed inside the U.S. under Northcom, partly for purposes of “crowd control,” fears that Americans could be incarcerated in detainment camps are all too real. (more…)

Celente: The Presidential Reality Show — People who drink the Kool-Aid will go down with the ship

Transcribed by Jeff Fenske from:

The Alex Jones Show – L I V E – Jan. 27 with Gerald Celente — Trends Research Institute, just-the-facts, ‘political atheist’

LISTEN HERE

. . .

The next shoe to drop domestically:

“What we’re going to see with the real estate collapse in commercial is going to make the sub-prime problem look like peanuts. And we’re forecasting: around March, the reality is going to set in that the greatest depression is on the way.”

The ‘solution’ is sold as ‘nationalization,’ but:

“What they’re calling ‘nationalization,’ …it’s not nationalization at all…. Now, Wall Street is in control of Washington.”

The Presidential Reality Show:

“This is the Presidential Reality Show, Episode 2, Obama Moves Into the Whitehouse. America loves entertainment, and they now have a celebrity President.

He’s the Tiger Woods of the political scene.

People are going to buy into this for a long time. … The people are so fearful and desperate that they’ll believe the thinnest veneer has substance to it.”

The college industrial complex:

Our education system has dumbed us down and forced us to learn all the same things in the same way. … There’s no individuality. … What’s going to survive in this coming greatest depression are the people that express their individuality, that are unique, or innovative, and really understand what quality is about. Those are going to be the survivors and thrivers in the coming tough times, as the rest of the people who all think alike, and have drunk the Kool-Aid go down with the ship.”

“Most people are only fed sound-bites of information upon which they make decisions.”

“They don’t want to believe it, number one. They think of these things as conspiracy theories. They’ve been indoctrinated all their lives through the college industrial complex to all think alike. …this is way beyond their grasp of understanding. How many people really know that the major issue in United States’ politics throughout the entire 1800s was about the central bankers taking over the country?”

‘Shows’ lose their ratings:

This is the Presidential reality show, and shows start losing their ratings after awhile, when they turn bad. … It’s going to lose its veneer.”

On the geopolitical front:

“On the geopolitical front, what we’re most concerned about is Israel and Iran.”

Celente says Obama’s early measures give the impression of ‘change,’ like closing Guantanamo, the emissions standards, the executive pay, the abortion issue.

“He’s solidifying his core support

Alex Jones adds that Barack Obama is already betraying some of his stances [like pulling out of Iraq]. And:

He’s throwing a few bones, but they’re hollow. We’ll look at a year in closing Guantanamo, but we’ll keep indefinite detention.”

Celente:

He’s just carrying on the policies and the big issues in the economy and geopolitical as the previous administration.”

President Eisenhower warned the nation as he was leaving office that the military industrial complex is taking over the country.

Look who Obama just brought in as his deputy defense secretary, a chief lobbyist for one of the greatest of all the military industrial defense companies, Raytheon [Bill Lynn, - ed.].

Don’t wait to get hit:

Don’t wait to get hit. … An economic 9/11 has already happened. Take evasive actions. Plan for the future. …

As my dear father had taught me…, ‘listen to your own gut; think for yourself; don’t be a parrot. … Stop repeating what everybody else is saying.’” (more…)

Michael Franti optomistic about Obama, but: “If he’s not doing what we want, then get mad!”

Filed under: Barack Obama • ToBeFree,Michael Franti,Racism • ToBeFree — Jeff Fenske @ 8:12 pm

USA Today Interview, transcribed by Jeff Fenske

Franti, grateful to the max:

“I started to cry. I was thinking: when I was a kid, we never imagined we would have a black President, or a multi-racial President.

And here I am as a multi-racial person saying that to my brown child.”

Yet, having said that, don’t let down your guard:

“If he’s not doing what we want, then get mad! That’s the idea: speak out, stand up, raise your voice”

“It’s when we all sit back and go: ‘okay, whatever the government decides, that’s okay.’ That’s when you have problems.”

- Michael Franti
