In recent years, mostly due to the rise of internet accessibility, the American people have been undergoing a rapid awakening. Some stories once considered so absurd that only the truest “conspiracy theorist” would dare give them mention, have been vindicated; and not only was the government aware of these misrepresentations, it was complicit in their cover-up. National debt as well as wealth inequality continue to climb and many highly educated economists warn of the US dollar’s impending collapse. Few would disagree that the United States has lost its way, as more reasons for security are declared and more constitutional rights ignored.
This decline in rights has given way to a rapid rise in community and nationwide protests. With so many beginning to become vocal about the ineptitude of the Federal Government, and many more awakening to the cause, it has become a national security priority for the US government to put an end to this subtle yet increasingly worrisome uprising of awareness. The most effective and direct action is to cast these Truth speakers and activists in the light of the biggest bogeyman of modern times: terrorism. Enter the Agent Provocateur.
Most modern protestors and activists are acutely aware of the presence of the provocateur, and it is for this reason that they will not allow for these events to turn violent, knowing full well this will give the government the very reason it needs to label them as enemies of the state. This is the exact purpose for the provocateur, to incite violence where none exists in order to both give them an excuse to shut down the demonstration, as well as to demonize the movement to those yet to awaken to the mainstream propaganda machine. This would divide the people on the issue and allow for the government to appear the savior, effectively conquering the awareness uprising.
Once the entirety of the American people are indoctrinated with the kind of intolerance already being seen in regards to the Muslim faith (this coming from the nation of so-called religious tolerance), the time will be right to begin using the new CISA bill in combination with the Patriot act to unduly and unjustly detain and desist protesters, activists and Truth bloggers who are only exercising their first amendment rights. They are already beginning to be cast as anti-American or even terrorists by many of the more radical officials. With provocateurs and false flag events rising in frequency, one should begin to view any publicized event through a lens of skepticism.
There have been many documented incidents of government agents infiltrating peaceful protests pretending to be part of the movement, even going as far as to break the law themselves in order to incite crime or violence that might not have erupted otherwise. This effectively casts those simply wishing to express their concerns with a steadily eroding constitution, as what is now being labeled domestic terrorism. As can be seen in a Congressional hearing, when Ed Royce likened bloggers, conspiracy theorists and people who challenge establishment narratives on the Internet, to ISIS terrorists.
An example of this already taking place is when the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released their “domestic terrorist list” via the Southern Poverty Law Center. We Are Change, an alternative news site dedicated to covering the stories mainstream media intentionally ignores, was on that list beside neo-nazis. Now whether one agrees with the content, the site is by no means breaking the law or committing an act of terrorism, yet the owner is now labeled as one, in a situation shockingly similar to that of the Red Scare. The action of labeling a journalist as a domestic terrorist is a scary precedent to set and does not embody a democratic society. Simply reviewing the content will clearly demonstrate, that however controversial some topics might be, Mr Rudkowski is no terrorist. Quite the contrary; many proclaim writers such as Luke Rudkowski as some of the few patriots left.
Another group that held the spotlight in this fight against tyranny for some time, was the Bundy family and their seizing of a government building. Some claimed immediately that the family was a psyop designed to cast the idea of a militia and the second amendment in general, in a bad and terroristic light. This did not appear to be the case, however ill-advised this occupation might have been. Whether or not the Bundy’s occupation was a government operation, the principle of standing up for one’s beliefs and constitutional rights against a tyrannical government is a one of paramount importance in modern America and should not be disregarded. The overreaching government arm that is the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is one of the primary reasons for this event.
In July of last year, the Hammond family was sentenced for arson for setting a regular backfire that got out of control. The BLM charged them as “Arsonal Terrorists” because it spread onto BLM lands. Some would suggest that it was because the BLM wanted their land and would go to extreme lengths to get it. This was the original reason the Bundy’s decided to get involved; to protest their injustice. Following the Hammonds’ arrest, the BLM began to burn the very same lands that the Hammond family was arrested for and this time it was unsupervised, in July, without fire safety procedures to protect the life and property of residents. Homes were burned down, cattle was burned alive, and the BLM warned that if any resident interfered they would be arrested. So the families were left to scramble for what was left of their belongings and hope other live stock would survive. This is a disgusting display of totalitarian justice that should shock any who value their constitutional rights.
Now whether the Bundys legitimately desired to help the Hammonds or this was just the right opportunity to interject their intentions, this move only served to inadvertently further push the divide and conquer agenda. It is not hard for those who still believe in the constitution to agree with the passionate actions of the Bundy family, yet this haphazard move left them no action except a violent stand-off, and that was exactly what the establishment wanted.
Then came the Oath Keepers, the Three Percenters, the Pacific Patriot Movement, and many others as they flocked to be a part of the show; some claimed to be there in support, others claimed their primary objective was to mediate. Make no mistake, government agents were on the scene, most likely posing as supportive militia, until the opportune moment arose to lead those who would follow astray. The Bundys had been vocal about wanting the other militias to leave despite their original call for all like-minded militia to join them. Which further suggested that one or more of the groups were not like-minded or an insurgent. Either way, the risk of violent action grew with every group that arrived. Those watching from home did not differentiate between these groups, due to the coverage of the corporate media. So action from any of them, represented all of them, as far as the media was concerned.
The goal for those looking for a way to effect change on a level that can be felt, should focus on a peaceful detachment from the system. The establishment knows full well what to do with a violent uprising. They do not however, know what to do with a peaceful detachment. Pull back your community and reestablish what you as a community feel is the appropriate path. Similar to the peaceful revolution of the marijuana movement, which many feel is the catalyst that started this mass awakening to begin with.
With so many moving parts, and manipulative actions taking place within the current political sphere, one cannot be sure who is and who is not legitimate. It is possible that this entire Bundy event was orchestrated to set the stage for the next big move. An important aspect to always consider, especially today, is that there might be misinformation being spread by the very ones meant to inform, even ones you may feel you can trust. The most important thing for the modern American to remember is that most of what is being sold, to put it gently, is a fugazy, a fraud, bursting at the seams with counterintelligence.
Many will continue to call this another “conspiracy theory” and they have a right to their opinion, however misguided. Yet the very use of “propaganda” was legalized in 2012, in an amendment proposed by Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) and Adam Smith (D-Wash.) and passed in the House. It effectively nullifies the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, which explicitly forbids information and psychological operations aimed at influencing U.S. public opinion. That which was once considered to be immoral and illegal by politicians of the past, had been quietly legalized. This is documented, yet shockingly unreported by the corporate media.
There are no doubt those within the system who genuinely have the best interest of the American people in mind. However, it is becoming abundantly clear that, if there are those still fighting for the America we once knew (if it even existed anywhere but our collective minds), they are vastly outnumbered. When one simply considers the recent actions of Congress, an institution meant to represent the will of the people, it becomes clear where their loyalties lie. Very few bills, if any, are designed with the average citizen in mind. To the contrary, in every way perceivable, they help corporations and the Military Industrial Complex, and hurt everything else. This is what the nation has become.
Following 9/11, the clear line was drawn that one was either for the war, or for terrorism. This was absolute political genius, while simultaneously, diabolically evil. Nothing is that black and white, yet Americans were turning on their neighbors labeling them terrorists for exercising their right to speak out against their government. The common phrase was uttered,
“If you don’t like it then move somewhere else!”
The absolute idiocy and mindless compliance this statement exudes foreshadows times to come.
Despite what one chooses to believe, there is a battle for your mind, and what you choose to believe, in the coming years, will define the world in which you live. In the world they wish to create, one will either be for or against America, there will be no third option.
