Beginning of the End for U.S. Empire

Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad.

Before I get into the meat of this post, I want to revisit something I wrote back in January.

From the post, Very Powerful People in the U.S. Government Want War – This is Their Sales Pitch:

We need to understand that those who want this war will be absolutely relentless. The sales pitch will not end until they get exactly what they want. This is where all of us critical thinkers need to play a key role. We must be prepared to diligently analyze all unsubstantiated official claims, and push back against the war-mongers, because we know for certain the oligarch-owned corporate media won’t. We must be prepared to inform our fellow citizens about what’s happening so that we don’t fall victim to a cheap sales pitch with devastating consequences. Unfortunately, we must also be prepared for a possible deep state false flag if the current sales tactic falls on deaf ears.

America cannot win a global war of such a scale if it is based on false pretenses and in the absence of exceedingly strong public support. This support does not exist. Will this serve as a necessary restraint against the masters of war and their devious plans? It’s too early to tell, but I do know that if we are unnecessarily pushed into a global conflagration, it will not end well for us. If this is the road our twisted status quo insists on taking us down, let us never forget who they are and the self-serving motivations behind their actions.

Four months later, the deep state got exactly what it wanted. Trump’s weaknesses have been identified and exploited, and he’s successfully been manipulated into neocon foreign policy like George W. Bush and Barack Obama before him. I’ve spent much of the past several months warning about exactly what happened last night, but the die is now cast. There’s no turning back from the path we’re on.

And don’t give me this garbage about Trump playing “4D chess.” Trump’s a brilliant salesman, and that’s about it. There’s nothing special or superior about Donald Trump intellectually, and he’s one of the most unwise people to ever become President. There was a hope he meant what he said about non-interventionism during the campaign, but that hope should be entirely extinguished at this point. Trump is a very weak man desperately looking for praise from those he claims to hate.

The purpose of today’s post is not to discuss what happened last night. All of you have read the news by now. My intent today is to explain what I think this means for the years ahead. I believe last night’s strike represents the beginning of the end for U.S. empire. Although the U.S. has been declining domestically for this entire century, America has still been calling all the shots on the international front. This makes sense in late-stage empire, as the focus of the fat and happy “elite” becomes singularly obsessed with domination and power, while the situation back home festers and rots. …

Hacker(s) unleash NSA hacking tools on the world

Hacker Group Releases Password To NSA’s “Top Secret Arsenal” In Protest Of Trump Betrayal

Last August, the intel world was abuzz following the news that a previously unknown hacker collective, “The Shadow Brokers” had hacked and released legitimate hacking tools from the NSA’s own special-ops entity, the “Equation Group”, with initial speculation emerging that the Russians may have penetrated the US spy agency as suggested by none other than Edward Snowden. The Shadow Brokers released a bunch of the organization’s hacking tools, and were asking for 1 million bitcoin (around $568 million at the time) to release more files, however failed to find a buyer.

Attention then shifted from Russians after some speculated that the agency itself may be housing another “mole” insider. At the time, a former NSA source told Motherboard, that “it’s plausible” that the leakers are actually a disgruntled insider, claiming that it’s easier to walk out of the NSA with a USB drive or a CD than hack its servers.” As famed NSA whistleblower William Binney – who exposed the NSA’s pervasive surveillance of Americans long before Snowden confirmed it – said, “My colleagues and I are fairly certain that this was no hack, or group for that matter, This ‘Shadow Brokers’ character is one guy, an insider employee.”

In a subsequent Reuters op-ed by cybersecurity expert James Bamford, author of The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA From 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America, and columnist for Foreign Policy magazine, he said that seemed as the most probable explanation, and that Russia had nothing to do with this latest – and most provocative yet – hack.

Since then, the Shadow Broker group, whose origin and identity still remains a mystery, disappeared from the radar only to emerge today, when in an article posted on Medium, the group wrote an op-ed, much of it in broken English, in which it slammed Donald Trump’s betrayal of his core “base”, and the recent attack on Syria, urging Trump to revert to his original promises and not be swept away by globalist and MIC interests, but far more imporantly, released the password which grants access to what Edward Snowden moments ago called the NSA’s “Top Secret arsenal of digital weapons.”

Imposed social division and control in the USA

Below is just a small fraction of the the evidence for elite social manipulation and destabilization of american society which you can find on this site.   Other aspects are genital mutilation and obstetrical abuse (this being the most potent dagger in the heart of society), drug running, toxic vaccines, imported muslim refugees from US foreign policies etc.  Who benefits?

Think about what humans do when they’re left to control their own lives, control their own money and benefit from their own labors (i.e. when they’re free).  They form stable self-sustaining social structures in the intergenerational flow of humanity.    Like liquid crystal.  Nature provides the physiological apparatus that leads to stable families, and groups of stable families interact to form stable communities sustained by human interaction, empathy and highly efficient, largely solar powered economies with low waste production.

Is it in the interests of large social organizations composed of alienated strangers organized around slave money (debt-based currency) to leave such natural humane social structures to themselves when the profits to be made from their disruption are so lucrative?    Where would fast food joints be without divorce and outsourced parental functions?  Where would the dollar be without the prop of wall-street laundered drug money?  Where would the central banking cartel be without war, the most efficient generator of government debt?

What does “power” mean in the context of social organization?  It means organizing large groups of people around your chosen economic siphons and political  chains.   Anything which interferes with this top-down socioeconomic uniformity and monoculture reduces the economic flows available to be siphoned off at the top.  It is therefore in the interests of the “state” (for want of a better word) to disrupt and homogenize the liquid crystal as much as possible in order to organize the human debris around its chosen business model.  This is the original meaning of “disaster capitalism”.  It is the meaning of social “digestion”.

The irony in all this is that free people, over time, naturally self-organize into large political-economic structures which give rise to the monopolies which eventually oppress them.  That’s why we desperately need to re-institute expiration dates and periodic reviews of corporate charters.   Corporate immortality makes power and wealth concentration without limit inevitable.  If they want to be “people” they need to be mortal people at least.

Anyway, divide and conquer is a time-worn strategy for helping to achieve this disruption and homogenization.
