Jim Quinn of The Burning Platform has recently written one of the better analyses of where we’re at as we approach election day, and why this is happening at this point in our nation’s history.  Whether you agree with Quinn’s assessment or not, it’s a fascinating read.

Quinn refers extensively to The Fourth Turning by William Strauss and Neil Howe. Strauss and Howe believe in a theory of recurring generation cycles in American and global history. According to their theory, America is about to pass through a gate in history similar to the American Revolution, the Civil War, the Great Depression or World War II. 

Here’s a few excerpts from Quinn’s article:

  • “Real hardship has beset the land, for those not in the .1% or Deep State lackeys being rewarded for propagating mistruths, outright lies, fear, and propaganda on behalf of their oligarch benefactors. These apparatchiks mainly consist of corrupt politicians, central bank lackeys, mainstream media hacks, neocon warmongers, surveillance state traitors, and big pharma captured health ‘experts’. The severe distress does involve class, race, nation and empire, but most of the distress has been artificially created by those pulling the strings – Bernays’ invisible government manipulating the masses.”
  • “I wish it were not so, but most human beings seem incapable of critical thought regarding how history follows a cyclical path due to human nature retaining its flaws, weaknesses, vulnerabilities and fortes throughout history. We believe we have advanced because our inventions, discoveries, and technology, but the desire for wealth, power and control over others still consumes a sociopathic portion of mankind who tend to rise to the top through any means necessary. As Huxley lamented in the 1950’s, technological progress has actually propelled mankind backwards in terms of its humanity and relationship with nature and other human beings. The very technology we glorify as an example of our advancement is now being used by the totalitarians to imprison us. It has happened slowly and methodically over decades as generation after generation have entered the government indoctrination centers (public schools) to be taught ignorance and obedience to the state. This indoctrination has been reinforced by ceaseless propaganda injected into their brains by media conglomerates doing the bidding of the state.”
  • “These anti-rational propagandists are enemies of freedom, as they systematically pervert reality and knowingly manipulate the minds of the masses towards how they require them to think, feel and act. After years of socialist indoctrination in government schools and universities, the masses have been taught to feel rather than think. Victimhood is celebrated, while personal responsibility is scorned.”
  • “As Huxley predicted, the controlling oligarchy has used technology to convince people to love their servitude, while unthinkingly believing what they are told by their government and media mouthpieces, doing the bidding of the government and oligarchs who control the government. The goal of the ruling class is to keep people from thinking, and most willingly oblige because thinking is hard and the uncomfortable truths are too much to bear for the satiated masses.”

“Today’s war has been an economic war of the oligarchs against the republic, and it increasingly appears that the coronavirus pandemic is being used, on the political end, as a massive coup against pluralist society. We are being confronted with this ‘great reset’…and the never-ending greed and lust for power which defines whole sections of the sociopathic oligarchy.”  – Joaquin Flores, Strategic Culture Foundation




The Prisoner


“We’re run by the Pentagon, we’re run by Madison Avenue, we’re run by television, and as long as we accept those things and don’t revolt we’ll have to go along with the stream to the eventual avalanche…. As long as we go out and buy stuff, we’re at their mercy… We all live in a little Village. Your Village may be different from other people’s Villages, but we are all prisoners.”   – Patrick McGoohan, from the TV series The Prisoner


This from John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute:

It’s all “…part of a long-running, elaborate scam intended to persuade us that, despite all appearances to the contrary, we live in a constitutional republic…

the rise of a police state, the loss of freedom, round-the-clock surveillance, the corruption of government, totalitarianism, weaponization, group think, mass marketing…

Terrorist attacks, pandemics, civil unrest: these are all manipulated crises that add to the sense of urgency and help us feel invested in the outcome of the various elections. No matter who wins this election, we’ll all still be prisoners of the Deep State…”


We only have the illusion of democracy.  The ruling elite have made sure of that. The kings have long since disappeared from the scene but basically the same group of people still control the planet. That’s why virtually every U.S. president is from the same family tree (descended from European and English royalty). Even Barack Obama.


“The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself, or be ruled by a small elite.” – Thomas Jefferson






Politics is all optics, strictly smoke and mirrors. Nothing is as it seems. There’s the world you see and the world that’s unseen, and most likely you’ll never know the difference.

Alexandra Bruce recently wrote an illuminating article entitled Corporate Communism And The Deep State. It’s about the connection of the current political turmoil in this country to historical events. Bruce’s article drew from a four-book series by Antony C. Sutton, including Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution.

Bruce wrote the article “…to help people understand how the same corporatist banksters that financed the Communist Revolution in Russia in 1917 are now financing the Communist insurrection in the United States.” Here’s some excerpts from her article:

  • “Sutton’s subsequent books were Wall Street and FDR and Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler, in which he detailed Wall Street’s involvement in the Bolshevik Revolution to destroy Russia as an economic competitor and to turn it into a captive market and a technical colony to be exploited by a few high-powered American financiers and the corporations under their control and its involvement in the rise of Adolf Hitler and Franklin Roosevelt, whose policies he saw as essentially the same ‘corporate socialism,’ planned by the big corporations.”
  • “Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization that claims to fight the power on behalf of the powerless, yet they have the backing of the most powerful corporations on Earth. It may come as a surprise that the same can be said about the original Communist Revolution, which was financed by the banker elite. In fact, we see the exact same tactics being used by the Deep State today to finance the current Communist insurrection in the US as was used by them for the Russian Revolution in the early twentieth century… When you make a donation to the Marxist group, Black Lives Matter, the payment is processed by ActBlue. ActBlue is the activist arm of the Democrat Party, a party that has become Communist, almost overnight. ActBlue distributes these donation funds as they see fit, with most of it going to Joe Biden’s campaign.”

On November 4th, many people will go to the polls. They think that they will be electing the next president. Unbeknownst to them, it will have already been decided.  That’s why almost every U.S. president is related, even Barack Obama.

Regardless of who is president, I can safely predict the following:

  • Even though there was an election, we will not be a democracy (or a republic). We’ll be an oligarchy.
  • The country, and many states and big cities, will still be bankrupt. The amount of government debt is so staggering that I am hesitant to tell you how bad it really is.
  • The country will be engaged in a war somewhere, courtesy of the Military Industrial Complex and the Deep State.
  • Illegal aliens will be treated better than homeless Americans.

…and Joe Biden will still be stuck in his basement.


 Presidents are selected, not elected.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt


Stephanie Ruhle of MSNBC suggested on the air that Joe Biden’s presidential campaign should include setting up a “shadow government” in order to defeat Trump in November.  It’s remarkable that such journalism is accepted as the new norm because what she said is illegal and could conceivably get one arrested for treason.  Abraham Lincoln, for one, would have never stood for it.

It’s also remarkable because we already have a shadow government.  Most of the people inside the Beltway know about it. It’s called the Deep State. The Deep State has been extensively involved in the federal government for over 70 years and its origins go back to at least 1913 with the establishment of the Federal Reserve.

Eisenhower and JFK both gave speeches where they mentioned a shadow government. It’s called a shadow government for a reason, because historically it has operated behind the scenes manipulating both foreign and domestic policy. In recent years, however, people have openly discussed the Deep State, including a number of articles by the New York Times. As John McLaughlin, former acting director of the CIA, said, “Thank God for the Deep State.” 



Of course, any discussion about a Biden presidential campaign is irrelevant because Biden will not be the Democratic Party candidate once the smoke clears in Milwaukee.  Without a doubt, Biden will be flipped for another candidate. Can anyone tell me why we even bother with the primaries?

Charles Hugh Smith authored an article entitled “ Democracy Is Now a Hindrance To The Imperial State.” You can find the full article at http://charleshughsmith.blogspot.com/2019/10/democracy-is-now-hindrance-to-imperial.html.

Here’s some excerpts of what he wrote:

  • We have a “counterfeit democracy which matches our counterfeit capitalism.” Comment: Our economic system is actually fascism, but people like to disguise it and call it capitalism as part of their blame game.  The very people who are complaining about our economic system are the very ones who created the problem in the first place.
  • “…Swapping which party controls Congress doesn’t really change the policies of the Imperial State….” Comment: The Imperial State is more appropriately called the “Deep State.”
  • “The corporate mass media is the PR machine for the Imperial State.” Comment: That’s why there is so much “fake news.”

We are a democracy in name only; everything is disguised, smoke and mirrors to the extreme.  As a result, the American public would never guess who runs our government, regardless of which party is in power and regardless of who might be president.  It’s a dirty little secret that you’re not supposed to know about…but, of course, now you know.

Scroll down today’s headlines and ask yourself this question. Are any of these people someone that you trust and respect? Now you know why the polls say that America doesn’t trust politicians or the media.

Headline: MSNBC’s Joy Reid Warns Trump Aides To Turn Against President Or Potentially Face Prison

Comment: I guess the other strategies weren’t working so now they’ve graduated to  just outright threatening people.

Headline: COUP: Brennan Calls On Republicans In Congress To Abandon Trump And Oust Him From Office

Comment: More Deep State threats.

Headline: US Media Now Filled with Former Intelligence Agents

Comment: The very people who are going to be investigated for the Russia-collusion hoax are now presenting the news. Ever heard of Operation Mockingbird?

Headline: Biden Campaign Threatens Fox News Over Explosive Trump Campaign Ad On Ukraine Issue

Comment: First he threatens the media to stop interviewing Giuliani, then he tells reporters that he won’t respond to questions about his son’s ties to Ukraine and demands that they focus on Trump; now this. Sounds like acts of desperation, Joe. Does this have anything to do with Warren now leading you in the polls?

Headline: Wayne Allyn Root: The Deep State Plot To Destroy Trump

Comment: And this is only the tip of the iceberg. The rabbit hole goes very deep.

Question of the day

What do extramarital sex, lies and politicians have in common? Answer: They’re all immoral. Especially damning are the videotapes of politicians in the Epstein library.


Politics of the day

Are you getting as tired of all the name-calling in Washington as I am? Every day somebody is calling out somebody else.  Seems like everyone in Washington must be a racist. What is the average person to make of it?

The latest is all the fuss over Democratic congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar not going to Israel. Tlaib and Omar started the fireworks by holding a press conference to tell the world that they were being treated unfairly. Tlaib said that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s move to bar her and Omar from entering Israel was unprecedented.  Never mind that Obama, himself, once banned a member of Israel’s Knesset from entering the U.S.

Note: Of course, Tlaib and Omar never mentioned that they are supporters of the anti-Semtic, anti-Israel BDS movement which was condemned by Congress and that their trip to Israel was organized by a Palestinian group which is also a supporter of BDS.

HBO host Bill Maher, a progressive Democrat himself, responded by saying that “BDS is a bullshit purity test by people who want to appear woke but actually slept through history class.” Maher continued: “Let me read Omar Barghouti, one of the cofounders of the [BDS] movement. His quote: ‘No rational Palestinian … would ever accept a Jewish state in Palestine.’ So that’s where that comes from, this movement. Someone who doesn’t even want a Jewish state at all. Somehow, this side never gets presented in the American media.”

Tlaib responded by suggesting a boycott of HBO.

Maher fired back that, “But here’s the thing, the house voted 318 to 17 to condemn the #BDS movement, including 93% of Dems.  Does Tlaib want to boycott 93% of her own party?”



At the press conference, Omar said that Israel was not a democracy.  Slight correction.  Arabs living in Israel are considered Israeli citizens with rights equal to Jewish citizens. Arabs vote in Israeli elections and are represented in the Israeli Knesset and on the Israeli Supreme Court, just like in a democracy. Omar also said that Israel is occupying Palestinian lands.  This lie has been repeated by others ad nauseum over the years.  You need to understand that there is no such thing as a country of Palestine.  Never has been.  The lands that Omar is referring to were ceded by Jordan to Israel as a result of the peace treaty which ended the 1967 Six Days War.  The lands have been in Israeli hands ever since.

However, I think that Dr. Qanta Ahmed, a Muslim scholar, made the defining statement with respect to this issue. It took a lot of guts because her statement is politically incorrect in today’s political climate. This is what she had to say about Tlaib and Omar:  “What you are seeing is full-blown Islamist propaganda. These are professionals victim-mongering women who unfortunately have been elected to Congress but are using every tool in the playbook of the Muslim Brotherhood … they are using Islamic tactic to invert reality….”



The one thing about Tlaib and Omar that Dr. Ahmed didn’t mention is that they are also agents of the Deep State (along with many other members of Congress).  It’s a dirty little secret that you’re not supposed to know about…but, of course, now you know.



The Deep State, the Illuminati, the elites and the 1%.  Different faces of the same Hydra.  They infect all social institutions in search of more power, although I’m not sure that there’s much more for them to possess.  In this vein, you might enjoy an article by Charles Hugh Smith posted on Of Two Minds.com.  Here’s the link to the full article: http://charleshughsmith.blogspot.com/2019/07/our-ruling-elites-have-no-idea-how-much.html

In this country, the elites control both political parties.  These days, when they pose as Democrats they generally pretend to be socialists and when they pose as Republicans they generally pretend to be capitalists.  The result is an ideological food fight which is meant to distract as well as divide and conquer.

As we choose sides during this process of polarization, we actually hasten our own demise. Case-in-point is all the name calling over perceived racism.  I can tell you from my own experience that, while racism is a problem, there is actually less racism in this country than in any other country that I know of (and I’ve lived in or visited quite a few).

For example, Japan, a country which I generally admire, is terribly racist.  One of the more interesting side-effects of their racism has been their ability to maintain their ancient traditions (which are better than a vast majority of countries around the world).  They value their traditions above diversity. In fact, they abhor diversity because, by its very nature, it undermines traditions.  So, I give the Japanese a pass on their racism because I feel that they have a right to decide what kind of society that they want to have, even if it excludes me (which it did).

There’s value in maintaining one’s traditions ala the Japanese. In a country like ours (a nation of immigrants), you can’t be all things to all people.  That’s why, in the past, it was so important for new immigrants to quickly assimilate.  Today, however, everyone wants to live in their own ethnic communities and keep their ethnic cultural values.  That quickly becomes a problem with respect to languages taught in school and spoken in the community.  For example, I went into a McDonald’s Restaurant near downtown Los Angeles and the menu was in a variety of languages, although English wasn’t one of them. Worse, nobody spoke English either. I might as well have been in a foreign country.  Actually, in many foreign countries, you can generally find people who speak English although that wasn’t the case right here in America.

When immigrants isolate themselves by not assimilating, the inevitable result is that the country is no longer identifiable by its culture. When you have separate borders within a country (e.g. sanctuary cities), the country no longer has one common border. Bottom line: When you do not have one tradition that everyone observes and when you don’t have one common border you cease to function as a country…but, of course, that was the general idea all along, now wasn’t it?


 “We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America.”  – President Barack Obama

P.S. If only that were true.



Some of you have asked who are the liberal elites mentioned in my last post The Man Behind The Curtain. This issue came up when Gregory Meeks, chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, got into a Twitter war with AOC and later called her a puppet who was controlled by the liberal elites.

Well, the liberal elites are none other than the Deep State. Saikat Chakrabarti, the man behind the curtain, should actually be thought of as the “woman behind the curtain.”  By that, I mean that Chakrabarti’s wife, Kamilka Malwatte, is the actual connection to the Deep State as she has worked for Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, the most powerful law firm in the world.

This is a glimpse inside the hidden world of politics, the world behind the curtain. The world that you have never been exposed to, perhaps until now. And you probably thought that AOC and/or Chakrabarti authored the Green New Deal.
