Hi folks, I’m Alan Watt and this is Cutting Through the Matrix on August the 12th, 2013. I always suggest that newcomers make really good use of the website cuttingthroughthematrix.com. There are lots and lots of audios for free download of the talks I’ve given over the years on radio. I go into the system you’re born into, the system that is all-pervasive, and how you’re taught to believe it’s all quite natural and normal, simply because it’s there when you’re born in fact. Your parents think so too, and the grandparents did so as well. You’re living through a system, actually a planned system where the future is always planned, and all the big events that will happen in your lifetime were planned long ago – many of them in fact before you were born. That’s how perfect this system is.
The big foundations that formed at the beginning of the 20th century as tax-free, philanthropic organizations worth trillions of dollars, are the ones that really are called the parallel government. They call it that themselves. Their idea was to bypass democracy by basically hiring and creating nongovernmental organizations, funding them awfully well, full-time salaries at the top, of course, and pension schemes and all the rest of it, and they would lobby governments across the world, all on course with the same agenda, because it all goes through the United Nations, of course. And the United Nations itself was set up by one of the biggest nongovernmental organizations or foundations out there, which is the Royal Institute for International Affairs, a private organization, and its American counterpart, the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations). If you don’t understand these basic truths, you can dig into it yourselves. Professor Carroll Quigley was the historian for this group and he said they’d been behind all the wars in the 20th century, all the major wars. They’re in the business of taking over the world’s resources, right down to water and food, and everything that is needed to supply companies with metals, etc., and they’ve got big, big plans for the future. So you’re going through someone else’s agenda.
These boys also put their own people in at the top of all governments as well, and have done that for a hundred years now, and that’s also what Quigley said. It doesn’t matter if it’s left wing or right wing. That’s just a game for the public of course, because the guy at the top always goes along with the same agenda as the guy that just left was going through too, because it’s decided from the top – not from government, but the ones above government, the ones that control it.
So help yourself to the website. Remember too, you can get transcripts of all the talks I’ve given for printup as well in English on all the sites listed there at cuttingthroughthematrix.com, and if you go into alanwattsentientsentinel.eu you can get transcripts for other languages.
Also, remember too, you bring me to you. I don’t bring on advertisers as guests. I could really get a lot of advertisers on board to back me up and pay me, in fact, and I’d be sitting pretty, but I won’t do that. I rely upon the people to back me up by buying the books and discs, hopefully, or donating at cuttingthroughthematrix.com. From the US to Canada remember you can always buy the books, which go through the whole art of conning people, vast amounts of people, a very ancient art actually, from early times, and I go through it from then up to the present time, how the arts have changed of course as they get more and more sciences on board with them, like neuroscience and behaviorism and so on. So to buy them from US to Canada you can still use personal checks or international postal money orders from the post office, or you can send cash or use Paypal. And across the world Western Union, MoneyGram and Paypal, and straight donations are seriously welcome as we go through the planned inflation, which is meant to bring you into austerity as the dollar is worth less and less every week basically.
The head of the Federal Reserve has already said that quite a few times, that he’s sticking on this plan of inflation basically for the next few years, so by the time they’re finished the purchasing power of the dollar will be half of what it was when it started of course, and that’s the idea of inflation too. It’s all a big racket, to be honest with you. The whole money scheme is a racket, and that’s why they won’t change it. These bankers plunder you at least twice a century and no one will change it. The same bankers stay on and they do it again and again, or their children that come in after them do it instead. So this is traditional, you see, it’s a tradition. You’re living in their system. They designed the system you’re presently in – the big boys at the top in the private foundations. Remember, the biggest foundations of all were set up by the biggest private bankers on the planet, guys who lent to nations, and still the same today, by the way, at the very top. Because the Royal Institute for International Affairs has an inner party and an outer party, and the inner party are all lifelong members of All Souls College actually, and that’s where they have their big, big meetings to decide the next tactic in their big war on the world as they take it all over of course.
They have thousands of think-tanks working full-time on every aspect of social policy and society, and how to change society – bend it this way, that way, whatever, including all the cultural changes they bring in too, because they also heavily sponsor the culture industry. You cannot change the world and all countries in it unless you own the culture industries in every country. And believe you me, culture doesn’t change by itself, it’s done on purpose by those who know where they want it to go. That means that the ideas that you think are your own are not yours after all. It’s all part of someone else’s agenda, to suit their own agenda. And even things you feel adamant about, you have to really question them; and who put this into your head, who benefits, what are the consequences of it, and as I say, who benefits at the end? That generally tells you what’s going on, because the big boys have left nothing to chance. It’s far better to get the public to be on board with all their agendas than it is to fight them or simply decree, put laws through when people don’t want those particular laws.
They’ve been doing this for a long time. The sexual revolution, all the revolutions you’ve had in culture since about the ’50s onwards were all done, promoted and financed by these big boys at the top, who are often mistaken for communists; many of them actually were. They came in from the Far Eastern countries and the old Soviet bloc countries during that Soviet period and became professors in universities to teach what was called a new term, they called it liberalism. That’s what Khrushchev said when he came over to the US for a visit: We don’t call communists “communists” in the US, we call them liberals; and of course ultra-liberalism has been pushed for a long time.
All the revolutions, which are still ongoing, by the way (there are more revolutions still to go yet), are still happening, and that’s why the biggest thing across the world right now, in diplomacy, is not lending to governments and so on. Any lending you do comes with a massive list of things that that recipient must go along with. And at the top of the tree they have gender equality, meaning for LGBT and all the rest of it to have full rights, and special rights actually, because they don’t stop at being equal, they want to really show it all in public as part of exhibitionism as well. But all this was decided a long time ago. If you go into the writings of Theo Adorno and Horkheimer and the guys who worked with them too at the Frankfurt School, and you’ll find out they went through this meticulously – how to destroy all that was in the old cultures of the West, and they meant completely destroy them altogether, right down to marriage partners and so on, and even bring in necrophilia at the end. He said, Then we’ll know we’ve achieved our goal. So these people are deadly serious, and the people like the Frankfurt School, who worked for them and the Macy Group, etc, and many others, were given after World War II the right to create the future culture for the West. That’s a hard thing to understand, that, but yeah they were given the right by the president of the United States to promote their particular cultural changes. And during the Reece Commission too we find that Norman Dodd and other ones who attended that commission into finding out why it seemed to be communist sides that the big foundations were backing – so the richest guys in the world were backing what seemed to be communist sides – made no sense to them, until one of them at the Ford Foundation told them that they take their orders directly from the White House.
So there you go. It’s a big, big plan, folks. We’re almost there of course, as we get into degeneracy, and with degeneracy comes the collapse of nations, and with the collapse of nations it’s easy to amalgamate them into big, solid, trading blocs, like Europe has already gone that way, and then you’re ready for world government of course.
Back with more after this.
Hi folks, we’re back, Cutting Through the Matrix, talking about the big system. That’s all there is really, the big system, isn’t it, and it’s worldwide, and we’re in the global agenda to amalgamate nations together, and of course the Royal Institute for International Affairs, the private club of course that set up this whole century and the century we’re in now too, the 20th century and the 21st century. You find that they also set up the Bank for International Settlements, the International Monetary Fund, and they also set up the World Bank as well, and the United Nations. So these guys literally, which were the biggest bankers in the world, remember, set up the whole darn system that we take for granted today. And all these private organizations, all their private banks, etc., run the world and the trading and everything else in it too. They said that towards the end they would use the clout, the power of their money to finalize all the changes in the world, force countries into amalgamations, etc., into new constitutions, and so on and so on and so on, to do with the United Nations and various treaties, and we’re living through this very scheme right today.
As I say too, remember too, the same CFR, the same organization in America, has got stacks of bureaucrats working with them who are all members of the CFR too, and they’re working in the US governments at federal levels and local levels and everything else. And these bureaucrats are awfully important because we don’t elect any of them, and they know what’s going on. It’s the same in Britain and elsewhere. They all know their job, they’re in there for life, and they get promotions for getting their big agendas through for the private clubs they belong to. The guys who get appointed over them as politicians just play musical chairs. They’re dependent on the bureaucrats of each department to supply them with their speeches and so on, because they don’t have a clue what they’re actually doing, the politicians.
Now, this is an article here, and it really is pertinent in any country. I’ve read the same articles in Britain and different countries of Europe over many years. It says,
“When Bad Government Policy Leads to Bad Results, the Government Manipulates the Data . . . Instead of Changing Policy”
That’s standard, you see.
“Bad government policy has created a years-long unemployment problem. But instead of fixing the problem, the government is trying to paper over it. We’ve known for a long time that the Bureau of Labor Statistics fudges the numbers to make unemployment look lower than it really is. BLS itself has admitted that its “adjustments” skew unemployment data during recessions. Indeed, the former head of the BLS recently said BLS statistics are B.S. ...”
You know, bothersome stuff
“... and that unemployment is much higher than the government is letting on.”
This article actually fits every country, in first world countries.
“The Bureau of Economic Analysis is revising 84 years of economic history ...”
“... which will make the economy magically look better.”
Everything is appearance, isn’t it, perception?
“The U.S. and British governments encouraged interest rate manipulation. And central banks have been directly manipulating interest rates for hundreds of years.”
Yeah, there’s nothing new about it.
“Government agencies have helped banks manipulate commodities prices for decades. The government twisted statistics and intentionally lied when it pretended that the banks it was bailing out were solvent.”
Governments lie to you all the time, folks. It’s a private club really, you see.
“The government has long ignored energy and food prices when reporting on inflation. Fraud is Wall Street’s business model, which is – unfortunately – being supported by the government. The government helped cover up the crimes of the big banks, used claims of national security to keep everything in the dark, and changed basic rules and definitions to allow the game to continue.”
All the links to do with this – these different parts I’m talking about here – I’ll put up remember at cuttingthroughthematrix.com at the end of this broadcast.
“It is not only a matter of covering up fraud that has already happened. The government also created an environment which greatly encouraged fraud. Here are just a few of many potential examples:
- The SEC has shredded financial documents for decades, to help cover up financial shenanigans”
(I’ll give the links for these too.)
“- The government-sponsored rating agencies committed massive fraud”
(I’ll put the link up for that too.)
“- The Treasury department allowed banks to “cook their books””
(I’ll put those links up as well.)
“- Business Week wrote on May 23, 2006:
“President George W. Bush has bestowed on his intelligence czar, John Negroponte, broad authority, in the name of national security, to excuse publicly traded companies from their usual accounting and securities-disclosure obligations.””
Isn’t that a handy thing to get for guys like that?
“- Regulators knew of and allowed the use of debt-hiding accounting tricks by the big banks
- Tim Geithner was complicit in Lehman’s accounting fraud, (and see this), and pushed to pay AIG’s CDS counterparties at full value, and then to keep the deal secret. And as Robert Reich notes, Geithner was “very much in the center of the action” regarding the secret bail out of Bear Stearns without Congressional approval. William Black points out: “Mr. Geithner, as President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York since October 2003, was one of those senior regulators who failed to take any effective regulatory action to prevent the crisis, but instead covered up its depth”
- The former chief accountant for the SEC says that Bernanke and Paulson broke the law and should be prosecuted
- Freddie and Fannie [Mae] helped to create the epidemic of mortgage fraud”
Of course, they all did actually.
“- The government knew about mortgage fraud a long time ago. For example, the FBI warned of an “epidemic” of mortgage fraud in 2004. However, the FBI, Department of Justice and other government agencies then stood down and did nothing.”
And I’ll put the links up about that too, going back to that era when they were warned about it.
“For example, the Federal Reserve turned its cheek and allowed massive fraud, and the SEC has repeatedly ignored accounting fraud. Indeed, Alan Greenspan took the position that fraud could never happen”
He should have been in comedy, that guy.
“- Bernanke might have broken the law by letting unemployment rise in order to keep inflation low
- Paulson and Bernanke falsely stated that the big banks receiving Tarp money were healthy, when they were not
- Arguably, both the Bush and Obama administrations broke the law by refusing to close insolvent banks
- Congress may have covered up illegal tax breaks for the big banks
- Of course, deregulation by Larry Summers, Robert Rubin, Phil Gramm and many other high-level politicians and regulators also helped to grease the skids for fraud
Economist James K. Galbraith wrote in the introduction to his father, John Kenneth Galbraith’s, definitive study of the Great Depression, The Great Crash, 1929:
The main relevance of The Great Crash, 1929 to the great crisis of 2008 is surely here. In both cases, the government knew what it should do. Both times, it declined to do it. In the summer of 1929 a few stern words from on high, a rise in the discount rate, a tough investigation into the pyramid schemes of the day, and the house of cards on Wall Street would have tumbled before its fall destroyed the whole economy. In 2004, the FBI warned publicly of “an epidemic of mortgage fraud.” But the government did nothing, and less than nothing, delivering instead low interest rates, deregulation and clear signals that laws would not be enforced. The signals were not subtle: on one occasion the director of the Office of Thrift Supervision came to a conference with copies of the Federal Register and a chainsaw. There followed every manner of scheme to fleece the unsuspecting ….
This was fraud, perpetrated in the first instance by the government on the population, and by the rich on the poor.”
And it goes on and on and on. But the fact is, see, you’re living in the bankers’ system. I’m not talking about the little banks on the corner, I’m talking about the big boys at the top. They set up their system a long time ago, and they created this institution, the Royal Institute of International Affairs/ Council on Foreign Relations, which now has departments across the whole world, and they advise every government on the same policies. They drafted up the European amalgamation, they drafted up the NAFTA agreement for integration of Canada, the US, Mexico, and other Latin American countries. That came out on television here. So private organizations are running the whole show and they’re owned and controlled at the top by the private banks, the big ones. So what are you going to do about it? It’s their system. That’s why nothing happens, folks, that’s why nothing changes. They won’t change it, it’s their system.
Also, an article to do with vaccine prices. It says,
“Vaccine prices increased 2700% in the last decade
A survey by Medicins Sans Frontieres shows that the price to immunize children, which was once 1.37 USD, has now risen to 38.80 USD.”
That’s to make sure that we’re all dumb and stupid and we get awfully sick, and then we can use their pharmacological medicines to try and cope for the rest of whatever lives we’ve got left.
Back with more after this.
Hi folks, we’re back, Cutting Through the Matrix. I’ve talked about Jacques Attali before who has written two books about some countries, but the US especially, to do with mass immigration being part of the free trade deal. Now, that’s true enough, because all free trade deals that are being signed right now – the TransPacific Partnership and all the rest of it – allow the free movement of goods and labor across all national boundaries. Britain went through all that years ago and so did France and Germany and the rest of the countries when they signed the initial so-called free trade agreements, just for nice trading, and now they’ve got a European Parliament hanging over them, a massive structure – a new Soviet. But the US has to go the same way too.
“At the Otay crossing near the San Diego border last Monday, about 200 people coming from Mexico gained entry to the United States all using the same key phrase; they claimed they had a 'credible fear' of drug cartels.”
And most of them can’t speak English, but they can parrot this off, ‘I have a credible fear of drug cartels.’
“So many were doing this that they had to close down the processing center and move the overflow by vans to another station. "They are being told if they come across the border, when they come up to the border and they say certain words, they will be allowed into the country," said a person who did not want to be identified on camera. "We are being overwhelmed." This apparent new shift in tactics to enter the United States comes at a time when the Associated Press is reporting a spike in the number of asylum requests in the past few years:
According draft testimony for USCIS Associate Director Joseph Langlois that was to be submitted for a congressional hearing on asylum requests last month, USCIS received more than 19,119 asylum requests through the end of May. The agency anticipates receiving more than 28,600 by the end of the fiscal year. According to the testimony, during the 2009 budget year the agency received just 5,369 such requests.
However, this new phenomenon is out of all proportion, even with this spike. To put those numbers in perspective with the 200 people making asylum requests on one day at one border crossing, 200 people a day equals 73,000 people a year – close to three times the total number received all year, at all border crossings.
... "To make our system even more ridiculous than it has been in the past," he adds. "There are no detention facilities for families, so the family would have to be split up. We don't want to split families up, so we end up releasing people out into the community on bond, on bail." Nunez says, "It's a huge loophole."
... The goal, however, may be to overwhelm the system. This apparent new tactic comes on the heels of widely publicized activism by a group called 'The Dream 9' who also used a claim of asylum to gain re-entry to the country. As leftist organization Colorlines reported last week:
All nine of the activists have now established credible fear, a step toward an asylum hearing. Supporters are now hoping the Dream 9 will be eligible for parole, which would allow them to return to the United States until their asylum hearing dates.
This connection between the 'Dream 9' and the tactic of asylum was made by Spanish-language news source La Opiniòn. They report (translation by Google Translation) in an article entitled El asilo se volvió un sueño (in English: The asylum becomes a dream):
Following the release of nine Dreamers prisoners in Arizona, after a protest at the border, others have taken the path of asylum as a way to solve their deportation.”
And it goes on and on. But anyway, this is happening across the world too, because certain phrases are supposed to get you into countries, if you’re scared of the government, they’re persecuting you, whatever. You’re supposed to get instant recognition and status as a landed immigrant. They’re even using dodges today, where they’ll pretend, two guys will come in and say they’re gay, and then once they’re in of course and they’ve got landed status they can go back to being straight, because they have that right to do that, right? Isn’t that right? So you get all these dodges now to get across borders and to get into countries, and it’s just going to get worse and worse, because that’s the agenda, folks, that is the agenda. And even Jacques Attali and also the Department of Defence in Britain and for NATO put out their 90-page report a few years back (it’s in the archive section at cuttingthroughthematrix.com), they went through the process for America too, where they said that eventually America is destined to become Spanish-speaking. That’s just the agenda, simple as that. And eventually they’ll break up America into different parts – this is from the Department of Defence, remember – and they’re going to crowd the folk into the cities under Agenda 21, and they’ll go down the tubes and people will die off and there’ll be all kinds of things happening. But they’re going to have these big private areas for special other cities and they actually named the cities that will come up through high tech and so on, and the ones that will fall down and just go into obscurity as they break up the country. It’s worthwhile reading it too, and go into the archives section, as I say, at cuttingthroughthematrix.com. Well worth looking at.
“Scientists warn face recognition searches pose an ominous privacy risk.”
Well, the whole darn system … There’s no privacy with any electronic media these days, it’s impossible to have it. It was designed to be this way. Before they even gave it to us all this was discussed, you understand.
“Computer based facial recognition will pose a serious threat to people's privacy in the near future, according to a researcher at Carnegie Mellon University. Alessandro Acquisti, who undertook the work with partial funding from the U.S. Army, made the comments after conducting experiments using nothing more than a webcam enabled PC and access to Facebook. Presenting the results at the Black Hat computer security conference in Las Vegas, Acquisti said: 'Facial visual searches may become as common as today's text-based searches.'
In collaboration with fellow researchers Ralph Gross and Fred Stutzman, the team set up a computer, webcam and facial recognition software at the university. Using willing participants, the team asked random participants to peer into the camera and have their faces scanned. Using a database of 5,000 publicly available student Facebook profile pictures, the recognition software was able to correctly guess the face in 31 per cent of cases - most in under three seconds.”
Well, the government ones are pretty well accurate; it’s pretty well 100%, folks. And now of course they’re getting folk to use it on their credit cards and so on in different countries in their cashless systems, and they’re all for it, as it’s so convenient. Most folk don’t care, folks. See, it’s true enough that a lot of folk are happy in a socialist society where you can be a perpetual child. It takes a lot of responsibility off you. Because you got all these special folk from special wombs above you that deal with all the big problems, you see, and they just tell you to go and play – get your paycheck and go and play, and lots of folk like that. They like the illusion too that if they hit hard times a welfare system is going to pick them up and take care of them. They have all these safety nets, they think, until they really need them. They think they’re really marvelous because they keep reading about it all the time. So lots of folk like socialism. And the trick too is to keep pushing that and make you want it all the more, the socialistic system – just be a perpetual child – the Peter Pan syndrome.
“Obama Quietly Signs Firearm And Ammo Killswitch Order
... A Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Final Rule published Tuesday in the Federal Register and a news release issued last Friday... ”
I’ll put these links up tonight.
“... by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHS) are recent developments ignored by the mainstream media even though Vice President Joe Biden announced last week that the administration would be using executive orders to advance “gun control” goals following a Senate battle that could not muster the votes to do so legislatively.
... President Obama has side-stepped Congress by implementing portions of the UN Small Arms Trade Treaty through an executive order which can be used to ban the import of all firearms, ammunition and related supplies and accessories. While patriots across the nation rejoiced when the US congress rejected flat on its face an attempt to force the United States into the UN Small Arms Treaty just weeks later a more sinister ulterior motive has been revealed. Today, President Obama bypassed congress and signed an executive which gives the federal government a power to completely ban the importation of guns, ammunition and even parts and accessories related to firearms. While the UN Small Arms Treaty would have prevented the United States from both importing and exporting weapons, Obama has effectively signed on to the treaty with his new executive order while allowing the United States to export weapons of deaths to covertly funded clandestine operations in overseas nations where it seeks to further its imperialistic agenda. At the same time, with nearly every other nation in the world signing on to the UN Small Arms treaty, other nations are now banned from doing the same which further leverages the United State’s power of shotgun diplomacy in nations that refuse to be puppets for the globalist elites that control America.”
And America is controlled; but every country is now in the West. We’re all under the same organization; private organizations run our countries.
“The NSA is turning the internet into a total surveillance system”
Well, the internet was designed to go this way. And I really mean that.
“The NSA is searching the content of virtually every email that comes into or goes out of the US without a warrant.”
Of course they’re not using warrants for all that.
“Another burst of sunlight permeated the National Security Agency's black box of domestic surveillance last week. According to the New York Times, the NSA is searching the content of virtually every email that comes into or goes out of the United States without a warrant. To accomplish this astonishing invasion of Americans' privacy, the NSA reportedly is making a copy of nearly every international email. It then searches that cloned data, keeping all of the emails containing certain keywords and deleting the rest – all in a matter of seconds. If you emailed a friend, family member or colleague overseas today (or if, from abroad, you emailed someone in the US), chances are that the NSA made a copy of that email and searched it for suspicious information.”
Isn’t that something, folks, eh?
Back with more after this.
Hi folks, we’re back, Cutting Through the Matrix. This article is pretty good too. It’s from the Rutherford Institute. It says,
“Despite the steady hue and cry by government agencies about the need for more police, more sophisticated weaponry, and the difficulties of preserving the peace and maintaining security in our modern age, the reality is far different. Indeed, violent crime in America has been on a steady decline, and if current trends continue, Americans will finish the year 2013 experiencing the lowest murder rate in over a century.
Despite this clear referendum on the fact that communities would be better served by smaller, demilitarized police forces, police agencies throughout the country are dramatically increasing in size and scope. Some of the nation’s larger cities boast police forces the size of small armies. (New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg actually likes to brag that the NYPD is his personal army.) For example, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) has reached a total of 10,000 officers. It takes its place alongside other cities boasting increasingly large police forces, including New York (36,000 officers) and Chicago (13,400 officers). When considered in terms of cops per square mile, Los Angeles assigns a whopping 469 officers per square mile, followed by New York with 303 officers per square mile, and Chicago with 227 cops per square mile.
Of course, such heavy police presence comes at a price. Los Angeles spends over $2 billion per year on the police force, a 36% increase within the last eight years. The LAPD currently consumes over 55% of Los Angeles’ discretionary budget, a 9% increase over the past nine years. Meanwhile, street repair and maintenance spending has declined by 36%, and in 2011, one-fifth of the city’s fire stations lost units, increasing response times for 911 medical emergencies.
For those who want to credit hefty police forces for declining crime rates, the data just doesn’t show a direct correlation. In fact, many cities across the country actually saw decreases in crime rates during the 1990s in the wake of increasing prison sentences and the waning crack-cocaine epidemic. Cities such as Seattle and Dallas actually cut their police forces during this time and still saw crime rates drop.”
So I’ll put this article up tonight, and this goes into another one too, because there’s a reason for all this, increasing this internal military – it’s really an internal military you have – for the crashes that are still to come as you go into real austerity, folks. You haven’t seen it yet – because that’s the big plan.
“AP Impact: Little Restraint in Military Giveaways.”
Now, the stuff that they can’t sell off to other countries that are having revolutions or give to Al Qaida and so on, the US military gives back to the US. It says here,
“Small-town police departments across the country have been gobbling up tons of equipment discarded by a downsizing military – bicycles, bed sheets, bowling pins, French horns, dog collars, even a colonoscopy machine – regardless of whether the items are needed or will ever be used.”
They’re just giving them by the tons to different police stations.
“In the tiny farming community of Morven, Georgia, the police chief has grabbed three boats, scuba gear, rescue rafts and a couple of dozen life preservers. The town's deepest body of water: an ankle-deep creek.”
So they can use it all in that I guess.
“An Associated Press investigation of the Defense Department program, originally aimed at helping local law enforcement fight terrorism and drug trafficking, found that a disproportionate share of the $4.2 billion worth of property distributed since 1990 has been obtained by police departments and sheriff's offices in rural areas with few officers and little crime. The national giveaway program operates with scant oversight, and the surplus military gear often sits in storage, the AP found.
Using a series of public records requests, the AP obtained thousands of pages of emails and other documents related to the program locally and nationally. The documents, along with interviews with participants and regulators, reveal that staffing shortages and budget constraints have made it difficult for federal and state program officials to keep track of all of the property and to prevent police forces from obtaining excessive amounts of used military equipment and other Defense Department-transferred property. Program officials often have to trust recipients to follow the rules and take only what they can utilize; requests for equipment are reviewed, but the process hasn't stopped many overly aggressive departments from grabbing property that could be better used by other communities with a greater need.
For many, the opportunity to amass a vast array of gear with few strings attached has proven to be too tempting to pass up...
Morven Police Chief Lynwood Yates, for example, has acquired a decontamination machine originally worth $200,000 for his community of about 700 residents, and two additional full-time officers. The high-tech gadget is missing most of its parts and would need $100,000 worth of repairs.
He also received a shipment of bayonets, which have never made it out of storage in his 1.7-square-mile city.
"That was one of those things in the old days you got it because you thought it was cool," Yates said of his bayonets. "Then, after you get it, you're like, 'What the hell am I going to do with this?' "
Morven isn't the only example of a giveaway program gone wild: Before his firing earlier this year for an unrelated matter, the police chief in Rising Star, Texas — the only full-time officer in the town of 835 residents — acquired more than $3.2 million worth of property within 14 months. According to an inventory obtained by the AP, the hundreds of items included nine televisions, 11 computers, three deep-fat fryers, two meat slicers, 22 large space heaters valued at $55,000 when new, a pool table, 25 sleeping bags and playground equipment.
Federal officials suspended Rising Star from the program in March after investigators discovered that many items — including 12 pairs of binoculars — were missing from police department facilities.”
Well, it’s going missing from them all, I guarantee you.
“"He was getting any kind of equipment he wanted," Rising Star city attorney Pat Chesser said. "I don't understand why any one city would get that amount."
Known for its speed trap and annual peach festival, Morven also has been one of the most prolific users of the Defense Department program, getting more than $4 million worth of goods over the past decade. The spoils have included 20 blankets, 10 two-man combat tents, a hammock, four demagnetizers, two leg curl machines, a shoulder press, a leg press, two treadmills, 20 red gym shorts, 20 fitted bed sheets, 50 flat bed sheets and 355 sandbags.
Yates conceded there isn't much crime and acknowledged that his officers spend most of their time on traffic enforcement. "This is probably one of the last quiet small Southern towns left in this area," he said. "Even my worst drug dealer here, if I was broke down on the side of the road, they would stop and help." Still, Yates hasn't been afraid to think big.”
So he plans to get more and more stuff he says, get a big SWAT team going and all the rest of it, and he’s got all these surplus military rifles, a Humvee and an armored personnel carrier.
So they really are, they’re militarizing the police as we’ve known for years. And that’s all part of it too, folks, because there are going to be big, big crashes still to come – to bring you into the new system, where all your spending money will go on taxes and energy costs, food, rent or mortgages, and carbon taxes as well, personal carbon taxes. That’s all to come down on your heads yet too. So there’s nothing happening that’s happening by itself. It’s not by chance at all – not by chance at all.
Also tonight too I’ll put up an article I’ve read before from other sites and books as well from the Club of Rome. It says,
“Environmental think tank [the Club of Rome] aspired to global matrix of manufactured consent
Recently unearthed documents from the private collection of former diplomat and Bilderberg regular George C. McGhee have revealed (among other things) that the Club of Rome in 1970 wanted to create a “global matrix approach”, or G-Matrix approach, as a means of bringing people into an enviro-eugenicist mindset globally. The Club of Rome was an influential think tank, advocating among other things worldwide population reduction and global environmental governance.”
It’s a technique, of course, the whole environmental thing. It’s a technique to get you off the land, into the crowded cities, and get you into a post-consumer society.
“The author of the uncovered manuscript from 1970 was Italian industrialist Aurelio Peccei, who founded the Club of Rome in 1968. Peccei wrote that any acceptance of the Club’s conclusions “relies heavily on a global matrix approach”. Furthermore he writes that these conclusions by the infamous Club (which includes advocacy of worldwide population reduction) can only be generally accepted “through (…) an iterative, global and substantive process”. Through such a comprehensive process, writes Peccei, mankind can “gradually attain a value-base consensus, and avoid the prospects of a critical future situation.””
So it’s to do with manufacturing consent. Now, the mass of people out there, the majority of people – and the reason they do fake polls all the time – most folk want to be in the majority, and the more education they get, the more they want to be in the new, politically-correct majority, on any, whatever topic is put out there, it doesn’t matter how 180 degrees it was from the previous opinions or whatever. So they’re the easiest to go along with it. They just like to be winners, and that’s why they put polls and things out there. So they give their consent – most folk give their consent. Children do too at school to be part of the group. Teachers know that too; they’re taught to use that. So everyone’s been manipulated into manufacturing consent, to your own detriment, of course.
From Hamish and myself from Ontario, Canada, it’s goodnight, and may your god or your gods go with you.
