No, not the Edinburgh Fringe. That’s another circus to keep people distracted (even if it does have some good stuff in it). I’ve been out on the fringes of tinfoil hat territory again, and I have to admit, as easy as it is to snort and dismiss the likes of David Icke as lunatic, his arguments actually make much more logical sense than most of what passes for ‘science’ these days.
See, if you are caught by Satanists, whether Satan is real or not is of no consequence. It doesn’t matter. They believe in Satan and whether he is real or not, they will slit your throat and pour your blood into a chalice just the same.
It’s the same with any fundamentalist belief. Insult Allah? Islamic fundamentalists will come after you and whether Allah is real or not, you’re likely to end up just as dead either way. I’m not having a pop at Muslims here, it’s just the most recent example. Christianity has done the same thing many times in the past, as have pretty much all religions. They believe they need to kill the unbeliever and whether their god(s) are real or not, it doesn’t matter. It’s not the god that kills you. It’s the people who believe so fervently that they think they are doing their master’s bidding.
Then there are all the tricks and distractions to avoid letting people see that the ones dishing out Holy Smiting are just other people. The robes, the finery, the impressive buildings. For a long time, all Bibles were in Latin and so were inaccessible to the common pleb. They only had the priest’s word for it when he sent them out to burn witches and do a bit of smiting of the heretics. Argue with the priest? The representative of God, appointed by some other representatives of God who said he could be a priest? Unthinkable!
So when Icke says that the Elite are worshipping some Saturnic deity, it doesn’t matter if there really is such a deity. What matters is – do the elite believe it? Do they think that they are doing their master’s bidding? More and more, it seems that they do believe it. The owl at Bohemian Grove, the symbolism pointed out by those we cheerily dismiss as tinfoil-hatters, all do indeed point to the likelihood that this new Priesthood does indeed believe in the supernatural. Is the supernatural real, then?
Doesn’t matter. If those with money, power and influence believe it is real, they will kill us anyway. If it’s not real, they’ll still have all the money and they will be rid of most of us, so they are onto a winner either way.
We don’t really need the supernatural. We don’t need Saturn or Satan worship, we don’t need lizard people or flying saucers. In the end, it all boils down to money. Billionaires who want even more money, even though they have enough to buy pretty much everything in the world already. It’s hard for me to understand how such a mind works. I don’t need much money, and most of what I have to earn, I only have to earn in order to pay taxes and duty and more taxes. if it wasn’t for all the taxes I would hardly need to earn anything at all. I have no ambition to own a Rolls-Royce or a yacht or a private plane, I don’t need a fleet of cars or a chauffeur or a butler or a maid. If I ever reach the point where I have enough money that I could live on the interest, I will stop working and just spend my days gardening and making up stories to scare the gullible (and some for the not-so-gullible too). This whole idea of ‘I have billions, I need more’ is a mystery. If I had billions, I couldn’t possibly spend the interest it would accrue.
But it is all about money. That’s why I struggle to grasp the antismoking movement – sure, the Dreadful Arnott and her Borg collective get paid to be spiteful bastards but they are paid by people who want to accumulate wealth, not spend it. Go past Dreadful and who is there? Who is the man behind the curtain? Who benefits from spending all that money keeping evil, nasty, spite-driven scum in work? That’s difficult to find and what you find makes no sense.
Governments pay huge wads of cash to antismokers but what do they get in return? A promise that smoking will be eradicated and with it, absolute truckloads of tax and duty income for the Treasury. Not just from smokers buying tobacco, but all that tax on business profits from the companies, all the income tax paid by their workers, all the ancillary businesses that make the boxes and the paper and who transport the products around, all the shops for whom tobacco sales are a big part of their income and who will go under when it’s gone – we are talking a vast deficit in Government income here, if the spiteful bastards they fund ever succeed. So where is the logic in Government funding of this hugely expensive hate?
Likewise, science. Over at Frank’s place again, Harleyrider points to another piece of ‘science’ that would embarrass a mediaeval alchemist. The children of smokers are more resistant to chemical irritants – and that is a bad thing!
Science is, let’s face it, stuffed. Scientists are not stupid. They have managed to get through a degree course and gain a PhD (at this point I should mention that I have personally seen two people get awarded PhDs that made me seriously think about sending mine back, stamped ‘worthless’). On the whole though, they are pretty smart people. A duffer gets through now and then but the system works most of the time.
What are they thinking when they put out crap about global warming and smoking causing dandruff? What are they thinking when they cheerfully admit that ‘five-a-day’ and alcohol unit limits were simply made up with no research behind them – or worse, when actual research gave a very different but not politically expedient number? Surely they must realise that at some point in the future, a point that might only be months away now in many cases, their fakery will be exposed and their careers will end? What are they protecting that is so important they will sacrifice themselves for the cause?
Smoking is in decline but all sorts of respiratory illnesses are fast increasing. Yet smoking is blamed for the increase even though it;s far less prevalent than it was and is banned from every indoor public space and increasingly from outdoor ones too. Smoker-hating is fashionable and trendy and the dim drones love it. They don’t see that while they are shouting at the wrong target, their children’s diseases are coming from somewhere else and nobody is looking at that other place. nobody can even get funding to look at the causes unless they are blaming it on smoking. Nothing will ever be cured, but the drones blame the smokers so their little minds are happy.
We are seeing more and more cases of mass hysteria where entire schools full of children think they are being gassed. There were two cases in Afghanistan this year. It was in Fortean Times, not the mainstream propaganda machines. Men in Black had one thing right – if you want to know about the weird stuff that’s happening, read the weirdo papers.
We are seeing more and more clusters of suicides. More and more murders – not what you might call ‘normal’ murders where a mugger kills someone for their wallet, but senseless, deranged murders. Someone kicked to death for refusing to buy booze for kids, some naked guy eating someone else’s face, that sort of thing. Every day there’s another one.
Why? Is someone causing all this? If so, why? What could anyone gain from messing with people’s heads in this way? Where is the profit, where is the motive?
Then we have the contrails/chemtrails thing. I have in the past dismissed it for the same reason – who could profit from it? What would be the point? How could spraying people with heavy metals possibly produce any kind of return on investment? Sure, there is the ‘religious zealot Satanist’ angle and there is the ‘Agenda 21′ angle but if we are talking about the sort of people Icke talks about, their main interest is money. If there’s no profit in it, they wouldn’t do it.
It turns out there is profit in it. A lot of profit. As a bonus, they get to appease their Satan/Saturn, advance their Agenda 21 and gain a lot of power and land ownership in the process.
The video is long, but those giving evidence are not what you think of as tinfoil hatters. Not the unemployed 40-year-old living in his parents’ basement. These are all professional people, some are even involved in climate science and in the financial world where the reasoning behind such a process becomes very logical indeed. In here you find why smokers get the blame for all respiratory illness and how a great deal of money could be made from what is actually very cheap chemtrailing.
You can dismiss it as tinfoil-hattery if you like. I don’t. Not any more.
