The Senior Editor
It isn’t just patting ourselves on the back, VT really can influence policy. Time and time again, we have seen governments, even Israel, certainly the US, the Pentagon, Britain, France, Turkey, Syria, Russia quite often, Pakistan and Iran alter policy based on VT/NEO pieces.
When they do it is simple, we are the only source they can turn to for analysis that still remembers a pre-internet world. The team I lead and one I have to use a firm hand with more than occasionally, is trained and retrained to ignore fake news and armies of mentally ill “internet people” who have pushed themselves into the “slimelight.”
Crazy is as crazy does.
Last week, Obama gave a talk on Trump, the economy and sanity itself. In the real world, Obama, the most popular political figure of modern times in that real world, proved himself brilliant and decent. In the world of internet crazies, he couldn’t be trusted because of a dozen reasons, each equally fake, used to smear him because he spent 8 years fighting Israeli control of America.
Understanding the system is easy. Internet people are only one component of an America off the rails with crazy. Americans have always been a bit nuts. All that held America together was bright stars of media like Walter Cronkite, and the fakes were always around, and labor unions whose only job was to support legislation that aided their members.
Union members were mostly industrial workers who bought homes, took vacations, sought medical care and tried to drink water and breath air. They sent kids to school and had to fight the wars the fatasses started.
Their enemy was the GOP, the banks, the scamsters, the polluters, those who would educate slaves, medical bandits, fake drug companies, poisoned food and the endless scams like we have today.
Read your email, answer your phone, someone is trying to rob you every day, everything you do, everything you buy. We are ripped off continually, we buy junk, our drugs kill us, our food poisons us, our lawn products cause cancer, our farm products are genetically unrecognizable, our roads are built to last 3 years and fracking will kill us all before anything else.
They even use little nukes to frack, if you didn’t know it. Then the GOP suppresses the science, covers up the radiation, the chemicals in the water, studying and reporting becomes a crime.
Then internet idiots attack anyone who tells the truth, that’s their job, part of being stupid and crazy.
A favorite story of mine is Libya. Internet people love to talk Libya and Ukraine, talk about things they know nothing about. Gaddaffi was a monster. Libya was a horrible place under his rule though worse now. The CIA put him in power as a “project,” he was an early experiment in fake dictators.
You see, the CIA has always had one big concern, “Europe.” The last thing Wall Street/Tel Aviv wants is an educated, militarily strong and independent Europe. Hitler tried to do that and see what happened to him. You can’t turn on a TV without seeing Hitler “Satanized.”
A strong Europe is needed because the US is totally nuts. We always have been. From NEO (one of mine):
“People around the world are convinced that the United States is a nation run by criminal psychopaths and morons. A greater fear is that world leaders mistakenly assume that their American counterparts who do and say insane things continually are, in actuality, normal people operating inside some “master plan.”
Then, when time and time again, no such plan materializes, and it is demonstrated that America has blundered into a diplomatic, economic or military morass, for some unknown reason, a “reset” occurs, and the wrong assumptions are again made.
At every level, humanity errs in assuming that those in command are there because of talent and worth or that, because America is so wealthy and powerful, that its people are such because of moral and intellectual superiority.
Blind acceptance of exceptionalism is, in itself, a dangerous disease.
If you ask an average American what their IQ is, they are quick to answer. Invariably they will say, “140” or more. Yet, when you look at American society, at America’s culture, the idea of a nation of Mensa types is unrealistic. Americans aren’t much more stupid than other people, just much more dangerous.
Truth is, the average American has an IQ of around 96. It used to be 100, the number established as a “mean.” About 40% of Americans run between 60 and 85, enough to function at basic levels but with intelligence low enough to impair higher functions such as judgment and critical reasoning.
This is where the real problem is, of that 40%, a significant number graduate from universities and of those who come from higher socio-economic backgrounds, like those with inherited money, they get not just Ivy League degrees, but often make it through “diploma mill” fake graduate programs at the Wharton School of Business, Yale and Harvard.
In Britain, of course, “idiots,” and the quotes are out of kindness because “idiot” is a real term with a real definition and applies quite nicely, go to Eaton, then Oxford or Cambridge.
Where it comes to play in America is the manner those of limited capability are channeled into military command, into government, into teaching positions even in universities and into the White House itself.
Thus, real talent, “brilliance” as it were, is replaced by “cleverness” and even various forms of moral deficiency on the spectrum of social psychopathy.
When the world watches America, “on the bus to ‘Crazy-Town,’” it is always assumed that the worst, even if that “worst” is true, must be denied, rationalized away. Even in America itself, those of talent, out of a need to simply turn away from an unpleasant truth, too often look for any sign that psychopathic morons in government and the military or, worse still, controlling social media giants and tech companies, are “normal.”
This form of denial, “normalizing” the abnormal, exalting the idiot, mistaking clownishness for hidden genius, very hidden genius, is in itself a disease, a weakness, a failing and a threat to the survival of the human species.
It is no secret that the world itself and certainly the United States is ruled by economic elites whose positions are entirely inherited, elites with a stranglehold on political and economic life. Their origins, the banking families of Europe’s Middle Ages or the “Robber Barons” of the 19th century, perhaps the shipping families that carried opium and slaves, those and more, have left America with an elite ruling class that has long demonstrated moral depravity.
Through social manipulation this group, that controlled the eugenics movement during the 20s and 30s, has learned that they don’t need to use selective breeding to create slaves, but that it can be done through the education system which they control through foundations and think tanks.
To an extent, it is demonstrable that the Nazi reign of terror was financed and engineered by America’s elites, the Bush, Harriman, Rockefeller, Farish and Walker families partnered with Hitler and IG Farben. Auschwitz was one of their efforts and what began as eugenics became mass murder under Hitler only to reappear as “Google” and “Facebook” decades later. In between, foundations rewrote history, recreated a “dumbed down” education system and society.
In American government, congress walled itself in with rules that stifled change and debate, gave all control of the few, committee heads from remote and backward districts who ruled America on behalf of ruling elites for generations.
Key to keeping it all working has been the reengineering of every institution to favor the “morally flexible” of limited intelligence, a nation of semi-literate legislators, doctors, judges, law enforcement officials, college professors, admirals and generals and even captains of industry.
The result has been 50 years of declining wages, lowered life expectancy despite scientific advances, a society at war with itself, radicalized, superstitious and easily controlled.
Fostering all of it is the general human weakness of denialism, the need to ignore seemingly unsurmountable challenges when simply “going along with the program” allows for survival and where “being part of the problem” can offer great rewards.
Behind it all is the fake narrative, an endless droning of jingoism and phony patriotism, of exceptionalism and behind that is always fear.
To an extent, technology itself is the enemy. A century ago, when America was a burgeoning industrial giant, teeming millions worked in factories. The hierarchy there wasn’t so much factory owners or thuggish supervisors, Ford Motor Company actually hired violent felons to oversee workers.
It took real talent, even brilliance, to design tools, create innovations, improve processes, all of which was done by real elites among the working classes. Whoever may have thought they were “in charge,” without tool and die makers nothing happened.
With all of that gone, CAD systems, robotics, a world of devices and “apps,” an America with fake universities giving out fake degrees, a military that passes out fake medals to fake heroes by the score who fight equally fake wars, whatever remained of a natural elite, an “offset” as it were, has disappeared.
By the mid-1970s, under the guise of creating opportunities for minorities, the bar was lowered, allowing the least talented to rise and the potentially threatening few of capability to be contained and stifled. This wasn’t by accident and had absolutely nothing to do with opportunity or equality.
It had everything to do with compliance and with building a society where moral questions would go unanswered, unasked and would eventually disappear.
The reality, a congress where an IQ of 70 is not unheard of, military academies where psychopathic behavior is promoted and those who exhibit the most deviant tendencies are “fast tracked” to command.
Journalism and its partner industry, “entertainment” is so much worse.
None of it was done by accident.”
Were Europe to actually function, with the Germany that General Patton described before his murder, a nation of hard working and intelligent people, like the Europe Napoleon had described as well, the US would never have been “policeman of the world” nor would there have ever been communism or the threat of “Islam.”
Europe fought many wars, one against Islam but one against Christianity as well, not a Bolshevik war, but the French Revolution and the Reformation. Learn some friggin’ history would you?
Back to Libya, a CIA experiment from the first, Gladio which imploded on Europe, never a bulwark against communism but a war by the US on Europe itself, just like ISIS was built by the US to fight potential democracy springing up in the Middle East.
Note that in 2003, it was Libya, aided by Israel, Germany and South Africa, that had the WMD programs, workable nukes, an Israeli bio-weapon program beyond any, that made the BZ/VX/Sarin and had huge stockpiles.
It was Libya and Gaddafi that ran the Bush/CIA prisons and rendition program, he was Cheney’s boy and when he was hit under Obama, he turned to the UK and Israel for help and to Bechtel Corporation. They all met in Cairo when planeloads of Israeli weapons and merc’s were flowing in to save the last neocon stronghold, Libya, in reality “little Israel.”
Gaddafi never did anything for anyone, not until he began buying fake press. Lots of internet frauds made tons of cash lying for Gaddafi. One guy, a human trafficker and “author,” got enough to buy a home and orchard in Oregon to retire on.
Several internet supposed “Palestinian lovers” got up to $100k from Gaddafi while others were being paid by the word, while Gaddafi was working for Israel and the Neocons all along. This is why he was removed.
As for the resulting chaos, this was caused by the resurgence of Israel, Saudi Arabia and the UAE moving in. They tried to get me to come in and run their game only a few years ago. They were hiring every burned out spook they could find.
The other deal, of course, is the fakes and the crazies. Note the phony war on Alex Jones, trying to make him into a new fake Julian Assange. An overweight but talented voice actor with no background, no beliefs, no personal moral center, a serial fabricationist now gets more news column spaces than most world leaders.
This is faker at its best.
The idea, of course, is to overwhelm real people with fake ideas from crazies, trying to normalize insanity so that nut cases like Trump and congress and the Pentagon can also normalize nuclear war.
War itself is now the norm. We used to fight against war. This is the very nature of VT. Now internet fat asses are like the Pentagon, fake heroes of trolldom with keyboards and delusions of grandeur.
