We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Whatever else is true, it is creepy and tyrannical to try to place military leaders and their pronouncements about war off-limits from critique, dissent and mockery. No healthy democracy allows military officials to be venerated to the point of residing above critique. That is especially true when their public decrees are central to the dangerous attempt to turn the war posture of the U.S. military inward to its own citizens. 
But could it be that we don't have a "healthy democracy"? And, all our government institutions are fake? If we Americans ever wake up, our real masters might decide that it is time for outright authoritarian rule, or fascism. Perish the thought! So, to continue our peace of mind (def.) we must continue to pretend.
Although Shea draws among very important "secret" documents to argue his case, in my opinion, he draws the wrong inferences about preparing the American population for WWIII. 
In this new world of globalization created by neoliberalism, the transnational capitalist directors of the US/Anglo/Zionist Empire will lose too much if a global nuclear war breaks out, and it is bound to do so if major powers resort to violence. Such a conflict will see the loss of most of their enterprises that sustains so much of their wealth and power.
The Empire directors have specialized in manipulating the populations under their control via propaganda and psy-ops. They have constructed an Empire through the use of the combination of these methods combined with outright violence. But because a global nuclear war would destroy most of their assets, they won't opt for a global war--except in only one situation. They will only do so as an act of desperation when they come to the realization that they will lose their Empire--which is a very real possibility. Excepting the latter condition, they will keep on what they have excelled at in the past: comprehensive propaganda and psy-ops to manipulate populations under their control in order to preserve and advance their private ownership and control of the economy. The latter will be combined with the new high-tech surveillance methods to eliminate or manage the many dissenting voices.

However, I think that long before the Empire directors will be in a desperate situation, the previously unthinkable climate crisis will be in the advanced stages. Because they will be a radically new situation, and I won't and can't predict what will happen, except it will ultimately end with the extinction of humans and most other species.

  • The Vaccines: Awesome Ingenuity or a Huge Mistake? by Chris Martenson, from his weblog Peak Prosperity, that features an interview with Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche (via YouTube--29:13m), a top expert on vaccines, with extensive clarifying and other comments by Martenson interjected into the interview. Other experts are losing careers after voicing concerns about the new "vaccines" as reported in this article.
  • A “Leap” toward Humanity’s Destruction by Whitney Webb from her weblog Unlimited Hangout. (Note: Webb recognizes that AI, as used by the ruling class, is set to incorporate the worst aspects of high tech to serve the Great Reset's objectives. Thus, Webb's extensive research focuses on one of the main suspects: "The world’s richest medical research foundation, the Wellcome Trust" and its projects and characters, and its connections with DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency).) Here are excerpts from the article:
... the Wellcome Trust has too many ties to corrupt actors in the pharmaceutical industry, having originally begun as the “philanthropic” arm of UK drug giant GlaxoSmithKline, for anyone to trust what they are producing without actual independent confirmation, given the histories of some of their partners in fudging both animal and human clinical trial data for vaccines and other products.
And referring to the Wellcome Trust, she writes ...
It should be clear how sinister it is that an organization that brings together the worst “mad scientist” impulses of both the NGO and military-research worlds is openly planning to conduct such experiments on the brains of babies and toddlers, viewing them as datasets and their brains as something to be “pruned” by machine “intelligence.” Allowing such a program to advance unimpeded without pushback from the public would mean permitting a dangerous agenda targeting society’s youngest and most vulnerable members to potentially advance to a point where it is difficult to stop.
 And ... 
The over-riding question is: Will we allow ourselves to continue to be manipulated into allowing transhumanism and eugenics to be openly pursued and normalized, including through initiatives like those of Wellcome Leap [a project of the Wellcome Trust] that seek to use babies and toddlers as test subjects to advance their nightmarish vision for humanity? If well-crafted advertising slogans and media campaigns painting visions of utopia such as “a world without disease” are all that is needed to convince us to give up our future and our children’s future to military operatives, corporate executives, and eugenicists, then there is little left of our humanity to surrender.
  • Follow The Science on PSYOPS to Understand the Enslavement of Humanity by David DeGraw from his weblog In Defense of Humanity on Substack. My reaction: I equate corporate media with psy-ops. Notice the latter link to a definition that specifies an "adversary". Workers, whether American or some other nationality, are all adversaries. Thus, American workers are the enemy of the ruling transnational capitalists and their US/Anglo/Zionist Empire. Corporate media use psy-ops as a weapon to create fear and dissension among the general population which consists of mainly workers.
I don't recommend this lengthy article to those of you who already see that the US ruling class has switched their fake support behind what were formerly minority and gender supporters and now embraces them. It would be a complete waste of your time, and I know your time is valuable. People like Nathan Robinson of the Current Affairs magazine are totally fooled by this switch in strategy. 
Robinson looks at this switch as representing reality, and he doesn't see the fakery of it all, or the mere change of strategy that the completely amoral ruling class sees as useful in dividing the left and confusing most ordinary Americans so that they can pursue their profits and power.
Because the ruling class has recognized that highly trained and educated Americans, on which they largely depend, are mostly supporting the agendas of gender and minority populations, they have switched their propaganda in support of these populations. Notice I wrote "propaganda" and not real political support. Robinson completely falls for this trick by attacking Greenwald and Matt Taibbi in their pursuit of truth wherever they find it.
  • US Seizes News Websites! featuring Lee Camp from his YouTube channel (27:28m) going on a rant about "our" government banning websites, essentially practicing censorship from any source that is critical of the interests (profits and power) of the US/Anglo/Zionist Empire. (Note: If you wish to read a more sophisticated take of this type of censorship, you may need to read this article from the "Saker Blog".)

  • What is Biden’s “Build Back Better World” (B3W)? by Brian Berletic from his weblog Land Destroyer Report. (Note: I am posting this from Land Destroyer Report instead of New Eastern Outlook because the former includes a 5:45m video featuring Berletic who summarizes much of the post's script.) My reaction: Berletic convincingly argues that competing US version competing with China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) are simply what the USA under the capitalist directorate does best: propaganda ploys designed to divide and subvert nations who have subscribed to BRI. Where China actually builds infrastructure the USA talks its empty propaganda spiels expecting to hold on to its domination of the world. I think this is a worn-out strategy that only continues to work effectively within the USA, and it is only a matter of time when most Americans wake up.
  • ‘Rules-Based International Order’ Means Washington-Based International Order by Australian Caitlin Johnstone with her American husband also reading the script--from her weblog. My reaction: Because the US/Anglo/Zionist Empire continues to impose its diminishing domination on the rest of the world, we can expect more grievous crimes to continue for some time. We can only hope that the Empire's core ruling class will become too desperate to hang on to their diminishing power that they will do something desperate like start a nuclear war.
  • Tools of destabilisation – mainstream media propaganda by Vanessa Beeley from her weblog The Wall Will Fall
    Beeley concludes her essay after providing much evidence with this statement:
    Corporate media is a criminal entity with zero integrity with the exception of a small number of journalists within the machine who have not completely sold out. It operates to protect power and to start and maintain wars. It is more than state media, it is a homogenized narrative management cartel, offering PR for war and whitewashing terrorism. Its information monopoly is currently under attack from independent media and Resistance bloc media which is why we are seeing the closure of channels, mass censorship and fascist silencing of dissent. 
  • 💥Losing Finders: The Buried Documents that Linked the Infamous Cult to the CIA [part 2] by Elizabeth Vos from Mint Press News. This is a best post. (Note: Vos promises more articles in the future.) My reaction: Both Vos and Whitney Webb are hot on the research trail to uncover the realities behind the growing evidence since 1986 of a coverup of Epstein-related crimes of child sex trafficking.
WASHINGTON — Concerning the Finders cult — the elusive Washington, D.C.-based outfit whose antics and ties we began examining in Part 1 of this series — one set of documents in particular held the most explosive allegations made against the group and against the CIA for allegedly covering the story up. Despite their contents, almost no corporate press ever quoted from these documents or addressed the concerns they raise. This article will attempt to remedy that deficit of coverage by fully exploring what the documents have to say. 
Later, she writes:
This piece will examine the three publicly available Customs Service documents, summarizing both the narrative and allegations they contain in context. Subsequent articles will evaluate specific aspects of Martinez’s allegations in greater depth. It should be noted that the first report in the Customs documents is five days older than the second report in the collection. Nonetheless, we will examine the documents in the order presented in the records available. 
And, Vos concludes:
Although FBI Vault documents refute the claim that the MPD case file on the Finders was labeled secret, Martinez never alleged that every document had been classified; he stated that he was told “the MPD report has been classified secret and was not available for review.” It is in fact true, as seen in the MPD reports included in the FBI Vault publication, that MPD synopses and critical reports of the case are indeed labeled “Secret.” Again, this corroborates Martinez and undercuts the established narrative of the Finders story, adding weight to the scale in favor of Martinez’s honest recording of what he witnessed. To the obvious point: why label such reports secret, then lie about it, if no evidence of criminal activity or an intelligence-led cover-up existed?  [My emphasis]
Wait! Doesn't this contradict Rasmus's arguments that there is no inflation above the ordinary? Perhaps the Federal Reserve, an integral financial institution of the ruling class, is printing and lending money to banks at very low interest rates in order to drive up inflation of major purchases such as homes and autos, and in turn, the banks supply low-cost loans to purchasers incentivizing such purchases. This follows the theme of the Great Reset: "You'll own nothing, and you'll be happy". Ordinary purchases of food, clothing, etc. won't be significantly affected by this practice which Jack Rasmus referred to.
Then when everyone is deeply indebted to the banks, the ruling class will simply cancel all such debts and transfer the ownership (and control) to banks that are owned by the capitalist ruling class.

  • COVID: Three men who own corporate America by Jon Rappoport from his weblog. My reaction: What, you didn't know that concentration of the ownership of commercial & industrial property has gone this far? Rappoport argued that it has--and that was in an article from a year ago!
  • Progressives NOT Demanding Biden Keep His Promises featuring Jimmy Dore (via his YouTube channel--07:36m) looking at the history of fake promises appearing at each election, but disappearing following elections, and why "progressive" Democrats in Congress lie to you. Hint: they receive benefits from the billionaire donor class. 
  • After Longest Day, the Longest Night of Horror Still Shadows Europe by Finian Cunningham from Strategic Culture Foundation. My reaction: Cunningham asks a very profound question referring to "the policies of Washington and its NATO allies: "Is it really lack of awareness or something more cynical?" The answer is obvious to someone who has studied real history and ignores the new, self-serving propaganda: it is pure cynicism that drives the leaders of the new empire. I have doubts that they are conscious of their own lies. But lack of consciousness does not excuse them from their objective to impose another form of domination on the rest of us in their obsessive drive to build another empire in place of the Third Reich--only this time led by English-speaking transnational capitalists.
  • Science Update: Aerosol Masking Previously Underestimated on Overheated Earth by Prof. (retired) Guy McPherson, an independent scientist (via his YouTube channel--09:47m), who has fearlessly focused his attention and career on the climate crisis. (Note: McPherson explains why global warming is slowing down the abrupt crash through intolerable climate instability: it is because of the aerosols which partially mask the crash, and previous scientific reports underestimated this. His conclusion: "We are overheating the planet and the escape route of reducing industrial activity just won't work. It'll heat the planet even faster.")

Posts that I especially recommend for Monday, June 21, 2021 (Very abbreviated post, but there will be additions if I am able)

  • 💥Jawing about Covid-19’n Stuff with Chris Martenson, and interview (approx. 1 hr) conducted by James Kunster from his weblog with Martenson, PhD, who has been following the Covid pandemic for some time. This is a best post. (Note: My thanks go to an activist for this post.)
  • 💥Biden’s Two-Step Geneva Waltz Simply Buys Him Space by Alastair Crooke from Strategic Culture Foundation. This is a best post. My reaction: Crooke is a top-notch British geo-political analyst (he worked in MI-6, the CIA counterpart in Britain, for a number of years.) After he explains the title of this article, you must learn what is the meaning of terms like "Project 1619", "Critical Race Theory", and "woke" that are in his article. The ruling class are using sub-ideologies (think sophisticated psy-ops) along with the use of the Democratic Party as a major shift of strategy for their domination of American society. 
          I especially liked this paragraph:
The ’emergency powers’ have ended too soon for the likes of the Davos élites: COVID lockdown was weaponised both to be disruptive – and concomitantly, to speed Trump’s ouster. But it was also always intended by the Re-set ‘crowd’ to be the bridge to span the gap between the immediate dispensation of the COVID emergency, and stage two – that of the Global Climate Crisis ‘emergency’ (which also would likely require ‘climate lockdowns’, we are told). These were the disruptive events (the deus ex machina), that would be used to legitimise global monetary governance and the ushering in of a truly radical ‘overhaul of our economic structures, and doing capitalism differently’. 
I am skeptical that the ruling-class operatives will use "climate lockdowns', but I would not  be surprised if they used some other ploy like a cyber attack to disrupt the functioning of the US society and instill a climate of fear in order to install some of their major features of the "Great Reset". I sense a feeling of desperation among our masters in the ruling class.
  • Assange Is Still in Jail by Craig Murray, a Scotsman, from his weblog. (Note: Watch especially the video that features Russell Brand, a British comedian, who has become a serious analyst of important issues much like the American C. J. Hopkins.)

General Note: I am abandoning the use of "labels" or categories as of today to further lighten my labor load in my almost daily task in continuing this list of articles and commentaries. Labels do not seem worth the extra effort. You are encouraged to use words or phrases, which I think are much more useful, in the search engines on my website.
  • Manufacturing (New Normal) “Reality” by CJ Hopkins from his weblog Consent Factory, Inc. (Note: This American satirist, while living under the severe pandemic restrictions in Berlin (Germany), leaves satire to argue seriously that the appeal to facts doesn't matter in the current totalitarian-induced fear campaigns. He concludes with this dramatic statement:
So, sure, keep posting and sharing the facts, assuming you can get them past the censors, but let’s not kid ourselves about what we’re up against. We’re not going to wake the New Normals up with facts. If we could, we would have done so already. This is not a civilized debate about facts. This is a fight. Act accordingly. 
  • China’s Space Program Makes its Mark by Gunnar Ulson from New Eastern Outlook. (Note: If you want further information on China's rise in all fields, you can find it on Here Comes China: Open Source Intelligence by Godfree Roberts. Much of the details requires a $ subscription, but I recommend it.) My reaction: The rise of China was accelerated by transnational capitalists since around 1975 with their obsession with profits as illustrated in the following cartoon:

The ruling capitalist class has fooled this writer along with most ordinary Americans. In the past the ruling class has used two parties to represent them: the Republican Party and the Democratic Party. The former has historically been used to represent the interests of the investor-capitalists, and the latter has been used to represent workers--but the ruling capitalist class controlled both of them.
Now agents of the ruling class recently decided to switch their propagandist support behind the Democrats in order to take advantage of their popularity. They evidently found during their support of Obama, the first perceived African-American president of the USA (although he was largely raised by his white banker-grandmother), that their use of minority figures and issues were paying off. They have accomplished this propaganda feat by using their control of mainstream media by framing issues as a "woke" thereby faking support for minorities, and "cancel culture" to get ordinary American to not listen to independent-thinking critics mostly found on alternative weblogs. By using hi-tech algorithms to steer Americans away from alternative weblogs, they have prevented most Americans to even consider alternative views of reality. And it has worked to an astonishing degree! Could it be that the near total compliance of ordinary Americans with the bureaucratic health expert Tony Fauci and corporate media is further evidence of this?

Our ruling masters have switched the commonly held class interests the political parties have historically represented in order to fool and confuse ordinary Americans! The fact that Greenwald and Taibbi have chosen to listen to pundits on the right is a testament to their devotion to truth wherever they find it.
... those who “violently oppose” “all forms of capitalism” or “corporate globalization” are listed under this less-discussed category of “domestic terrorist.” This highlights how people on the left, many of whom have called for capitalism to be dismantled or replaced in the US in recent years, could easily be targeted in this new “war” that many self-proclaimed leftists are currently supporting. Similarly, “environmentally-motivated extremists,” a category in which groups such as Extinction Rebellion could easily fall, are also included.
In addition, the phrasing indicates that it could easily include as “terrorists” those who oppose the World Economic Forum’s vision for global “stakeholder capitalism,” as that form of “capitalism” involves corporations and their main “stakeholders” creating a new global economic and governance system. The WEF’s stakeholder capitalism thus involves both “capitalism” and “corporate globalization.”

  • Who Wants To Hear My Crazy, Kooky Conspiracy Theory About 1/6? by Australian Caitlin Johnstone with her American husband also reading the script--from her weblog. (Note: Today I do not recommend his narration because he accidentally leaves out two sentences. Also, you should read the above post first because this post is based on that post by Webb.)
