Control Through Language
I’ve said this many times before, but the worst we can expect from the media is straight lies ,and the best we can hope for is a mere manipulation of the truth.
Mainstream media lives somewhere in between the two. Never do they present information without some kind of twist, a tilt, or some important factor left out. It is the terrain we must traverse, but we need to not blindly accept anything said without diving deeper into the truth in the messages we are presented. We need to look at every message from multiple angles, even with what appears to be the simplest information presented to us.
For the past week (at the time of writing this,) the media has been talking about how the stock market (the S&P 500) is at an all-time high.
What are they trying to convey to us?
They are trying to convince us that the economy is doing great under the Biden Regime. Never better. They want you to stop using your eyes to see what is around you.
Your eyes can lie, only trust the media, they know better than you. In other words, the world you are experiencing isn’t real, and the world they are presenting to you is in fact the real world, and please, whatever you do, don’t look at the debt the government is racking up at record rates. Explaining how the debt isn’t bad is even exhausting for the “talking heads” to spin.
They will tell you the GDP is better than expected, that it’s proof the economy is growing. What they aren’t telling you is the debt is growing much faster than the economy is growing. It’s like making $1k more a year in income while your credit card balance is growing by $10k a year. Another thing they aren’t telling you about the jobs numbers is that they are growing part-time, minimum wage jobs, and that they are replacing private sector jobs with government jobs. We all know how efficient government jobs are, and guess who is paying for those new government jobs? We are, through our taxes.
Imagine going to a bank to get a loan using the government’s business model; the banker would laugh you out the door.
The truth is that the S&P 500 IS at an all-time high, but what they aren’t telling you is it is right back to where it was two years ago. In other words, there has been no actual growth in two years. It’s kind of like going to work 40 hours a week for two years and not being paid for your time. Another thing they aren’t telling you is that the vast majority of the stock market recovery over the past year came from just seven stocks—mostly mega corporations controlled by Cabal elites; the other 493 stocks haven’t done so well.
Yet another thing they aren’t mentioning is that the stock market—publicly traded companies—represents 1% of the companies and businesses in the US.
99% of US companies and businesses aren’t a part of the stock market, yet we are to believe the 1% represents the other 99%. This is like saying the “one-percenters” in America represent everyone else—the middle class, the working class and the poor.
What if we take the S&P 500 and stretch that out to the Russell 2000, meaning we look at the top 2000 companies in the US rather than the top 500? The Russell 2000 companies are -2% in performance for the past three years, essentially since Biden took office. This is like showing up to work for three years, and not only do you not make any money, but it also costs you to work there. Maybe you have to pay for parking to work for free.
Now let’s factor in inflation, the elephant in the room that is ignored and manipulated by the government and media.
Inflation is up 17% since Biden took office (there’s that number again.) In reality, “real” inflation is probably double what the government agencies are presenting to us. The government agencies include and exclude numbers to come up with the lowest inflation numbers possible to create the appearance that things aren’t all that bad.
Just for reference, the cost of a new mortgage payment is up 90% since Biden took office. It costs almost twice as much now to buy a house, or in some cases to pay rent. Many Americans’ biggest expense has doubled. The items and services that we need to survive are mostly way up in cost, and the things that we don’t need—discretionary items and services—are starting to come down.
If we take the Russell 2000 with its -2% growth since Biden took office, and factor in “real” inflation estimates of around 33%, this means the stock market has lost 1/3 of its purchasing power through inflation. So, in reality, the stock market is down 1/3, or 33% in the past two or three years, depending on which index you use. As a result, all of a sudden this talk about “all-time highs” doesn’t have the same feel.
I would argue the 99% of American companies and businesses that aren’t represented by the stock market are doing even worse, and that many are being cannibalized by the Cabal elite controlled mega corporations.
What am I trying to say here? Numbers may not lie, but the people who manipulate them do. Trust your own eyes. Question the authenticity of everything you hear in the media.
I do think things will pick up and become “real” once Trump is back in the White House. Since the Iowa Caucus “beatdown”, with the inevitability of Trump becoming POTUS again, it seems everyone is starting to kiss Trump’s butt to appear they were always behind him. *Cough, cough, Jamie Diamond.*
Always understand that we are constantly being manipulated, and, in some cases, unintentionally doing the will of the Cabal.
Remember when Bud Light came out with their advertising campaign around a Trans person? Everyone boycotted Bud Light, Budweiser lost billions in sales and stock price. But who was really hurt by this boycott? In reality, it was mostly the average, hardworking Joe’s that work in the Budweiser factories, warehouses and delivery drivers.
I’m not saying you should support a company that pushes “Trans worship” down your throat, but this is the reality of it. The people who were brought in to get Bud’s DEI compliance up to WEF standards could care less about the company and its employees. These Cabal puppets walked away from the scene of the accident they caused and were paid well for their intentionally-destructive efforts. The trans advertising fiasco was their intention; it wasn’t a screw up. For real, they aren’t really that stupid.
Destroying an American brand that Americans identify with is their goal. Destroying the American economy is also their goal.
Now Boeing is under fire. A door flew off an airplane in mid-flight, and the narrative being pushed now is that they have made too many diversity hires and have focused more on celebrating LGBTQ+ initiatives than building safe airplanes. ESG, DEI and “wokeism” are all of a sudden under attack.
Do I agree with the sentiment that Boeing should focus more on building safe airplanes, and that Boeing and the airlines should be hiring the most qualified people to build and fly these planes? Absolutely. But why is the media all of a sudden voluntarily “turning on” wokeism?
Have you noticed that all of a sudden, we can now attack wokeism and get away with it?
I would argue that wokeism peaked around 12-18 months ago. At that time, you couldn’t even roll your eyes at the craziness of it; if you didn’t show enough praise to people who are brave enough to identify as a unicorn, you were considered a threat to America and labeled a Nazi. Now you can actually call out the craziness and get away with it.
Sixteen months ago, my older son started high school. My wife and I went to the “parent’s night” to learn about the school and classes. We had to hear about how the classes were “safe spaces”, and how the school clubs included the LGBTQ+ Club—of course, no Christian Clubs were allowed. BLM and rainbow flags were everywhere. Anybody who has read anything I’ve written could imagine it took all my strength to not start turning over tables and desks, or show up wearing Braveheart face paint, although I was doing it in my mind.
The other day, my son happened to mention to me that it isn’t like that at school anymore. All the crazy stuff just kind of went away, though there are still many teachers that openly and regularly criticize Trump. Q mentions that 4-6% of American's minds are permanently broken by the mind control and will never come around, but I would argue that number is probably considerably higher for public school teachers—at least double.
It’s important for us to remember that just because we read an article or saw a viral video clip a year or two ago doesn’t mean things are exactly the same today. Wokeism has peaked and is now in free-fall. Yes, it’s still around, but it’s fading fast.
What changed? Did they infest society with “wokeness,” understanding it couldn’t last without constantly feeding it and nurturing it. Was wokeness created to be destroyed. Have we been played by it all along? Was it a test to see how far we would go towards supporting or at least accepting “mentally unwell” ideas before we would no longer tolerate it?
Did they discover we are fine with paying to have tampon machines installed in the boy’s bathrooms of public high schools, but we aren’t ok with paying for abortions for imaginary male pregnancies? Were parameters being established for other matters? Or like I mentioned, was wokeism only created to be destroyed? Did they build it just to knock it down?
The truth is like a lion; it doesn’t need to be protected. If you set it free, it will defend itself. Lies are like a human baby; they need constant nurturing and care to stay alive.
Remember when Obama left office, and on his way out the door, he set aside hundreds of millions of dollars of government tax-payer money to fund thousands of woke journalists to write propaganda for two years? After two years, the media companies they worked for suddenly had mass layoffs.
Back to Boeing.
Who is Boeings biggest competitor? Airbus. Where does the production of Boeing airplanes occur? In the U.S. of A. Where are most Airbus planes produced? Europe. Who created wokeism? Europe, especially “think tanks” run by the City of London. In fact, “political correctness” was created to be a weapon of control in pre-Nazi Germany, and later dropped on US University campuses in the early 1990s. Who created and controlled not only communism and communists, but also the Nazis? The British Cabal.
(Side note: The reason the British Cabal hate Putin and Russia so much goes way back to the US Civil War, when the Russian Navy blocked the British from helping the South, allowing the North to win the war. The Cabal never forgave Russia. In response, the British Cabal weaponized communism to destroy Russia, then kept them in a prison-like state (the Soviet Union) for decades until the Russian people had enough and “tore down that wall”, breaking free of the City of London chains. This is why the Cabal hates Russia today; Putin and Russia are a threat to their world control, as is Donald Trump.)
Back to Boeing and the destruction of US companies through wokeism.
Let me get this straight: foreign, European countries created and spread wokeism throughout America, where it not only divided the country and created psychologically unwell people, but also ruined its economy. Then the same foreign countries that infested America with wokeism pick up America’s lost business. The demise of the American businesses benefit the foreign countries, and we are helping them do it by boycotting US companies?
Sounds a bit like a conspiracy.
And believe me, I get it: it’s hard to support companies that don’t support American values, and there is no easy answer. I’m not telling anyone what to do, just to understand that everything has consequences, and that sometimes, we are led into doing the Cabal’s will.
Fairly recently, a very smart and interesting guy on Badlands Media said he is quitting Twitter (X) for good.took some heat for this decision, as the excuse people used for him to remain on X fighting with bots and paid shills and legitimately psychologically unwell people is that we are called to remain on the “battlefield”.
Q said on 6/24/20 in Post 4510: “Never retreat from the battlefield (Twitter, FB, etc.).”
Guess what wasn’t around on 6/24/20? ANY patriot-controlled social media sites like Truth Social, Rumble, etc. Nor did Elon Musk own X at the time.
I agree with Chris: in my opinion, X is no place for me to be wasting my time and energy fighting with unwell people, imaginary people, or people who are paid to argue with me. I go on X every day to follow people who aren’t on Truth Social or Rumble, but I rarely post or interact with anyone there. People can do whatever the heck they want to do, but for me, I choose not to be a part of the insanity.
The Cabal overlords want nothing more than to be able to shut down Musk’s X.
The EU has the Digital Service Agreement in place, and are looking to kick X out of the entire continent of Europe if they can get enough people on the platform to say things they can twist into being labeled as disinformation or “hate speech”. In my opinion, MAGA Trump supporters should leave X for Musk and his chosen, well-paid, and “algorithmic” influencers to fight with the crazy people. It’s fine to listen in, but MAGA engaging with these people is a disaster waiting to happen, and a complete waste of my time.
The progressive liberals are conditioned to reject anything that comes from an open Trump supporter. We are just getting in the way on X. In my opinion, we are a liability, and let’s not forget the fact that we are also being shadow banned into oblivion.
Again, the EU and other Deep State players are just looking for an excuse to shut X down. We may be able to win arguments with people on X, but who cares? Brainwashed people don’t change their beliefs because they are presented facts. It just doesn’t work that way.
I remember when Truth Social first came out, and patriots were able to communicate with each other again. It was awesome. Then, when Musk bought Twitter and allowed many in the “truth community” back on the platform, there was a mass exodus from Truth Social to Twitter. Many “truthers” stopped posting and engaging on Truth Social, and it has never been the same.
I believe our efforts should be going towards building up Truth Social and Rumble. I see engaging with people on Twitter to be the equivalent of Don Quixote battling windmills.
Trump Media and Technology Group
A SPAC is a special purpose acquisition company without commercial operations, and is formed strictly to raise capital through an initial public offering (IPO) for the purpose of acquiring or merging with an existing company. DWAC is the SPAC that Trump used to merge with Trump Media.
Over two years ago, DWAC started raising money with the intention of later merging with Trump Media; this would give Trump money to build a media site or sites to compete with mainstream media in order to give people an opportunity to hear real news and entertainment that isn’t woke or designed to mind control the population.
The SEC has used unprecedented tactics to block the merger between DWAC and the Trump Media and Technology Group from going through, keeping the money from getting to Trump to use in building out his media empire. The Deep State can’t afford for Trump to have access to the funds and ability to reach the people.
Trump started Truth Social two years ago, and hasn’t been able to build it out because the Deep State has blocked him from accessing the money raised in DWAC—basically the money WE invested in DWAC. Until a merger finally goes through, Truth Social and other planned Trump media can’t take off, which means no cable channels, or movies or news and entertainment apps.
Imagine a Netflix-like app that would allow us to access non-woke entertainment. It could happen if the SEC stopped corruptly blocking the merger.
Not long ago, I was listening to another smart and interesting person on Badlands Media read from the George Orwell novel 1984. It inspired me to pick up the book to re-read again.
I actually read Orwell’s 1984 for the first time maybe five years ago, and I was an “awake” person at the time. It was written in 1949, and I was shocked by how accurately it predicted the future. I knew Orwell had to have some kind of “insider” information to be able to predict so accurately what he predicted. He had to be privy to information and plans the rest of humanity didn’t have access to.
I later found out that British authors George Orwell, H.G. Wells, Aldous Huxley—who authored Brave New World—his brother Julian, and Margaret Sanger all ran in the same circles in the first couple decades of the 1900s. Sanger, who was the early “face” of abortion and Planned Parenthood, is said to be a former “lover” of Wells, and Julian Huxley was instrumental in the big psychedelic drug push in America during the 1960s.
(By the way, the British intelligence agencies created the American “Hippie” counterculture movement.”)
At least some, if not all of the people I mentioned just now were supporters of Eugenics. They believed in controlling who reproduced and how often. Hitler got a lot of his ideas from the Eugenics supporters of early 20th Century America and England.
I believe the Cabal plan was shared with these authors, and that is how they were able to accurately predict the future in their fiction.
Orwell was a few decades early with his predictions, but that is likely due to something or someone getting in the way of the Cabal’s plan. I‘ve suggested before that Reagan was a bit of a stick in the bicycle wheel of the Deep State Cabal, setting them back decades. It’s weird to think the decade of the 1960s was likely planned out fifty years in advance, as was Roe v Wade and the government control we are currently experiencing.
How far back was 9/11 or Covid planned?
In the novel 1984, the book’s protagonist, Winston, works for the government media. One of his job responsibilities is to help in the re-writing of history as the narratives change. With every new narrative that comes out, they need to remove any evidence of the prior narratives that might go against the new one by destroying documents and books, “memory-holing” ideas like they never occurred.
In one scene, Winston is having a conversation in a work cafeteria lunch line with a colleague from a different government department who is in charge of writing a new dictionary. The goal is to create a dictionary that had fewer and fewer words. If they can eliminate certain words from being used, they can better control how people thought. Limiting words would limit thought.
This is a really interesting concept: in theory, if they remove certain words from our vocabulary, the manipulators can alter not only how we describe something, but they can eliminate thoughts from ever coming into our minds.
It’s like assuming that if racist words were eliminated from our vocabulary, we would no longer have racist thoughts. If hateful words were removed, there would be no hate for anything because we don’t have the words to describe our hate. If we don’t have the words to think something, we wouldn’t be able to have the thoughts.
If words used to describe “freedom” are removed from our vocabulary, we won’t seek the concept of freedom. We become more easily controlled. It’s like you can’t crave a food you have never heard of, seen or tasted.
The only problem is that, as humans, we have inherent needs, desires and expectations, and they don’t just go away because there aren’t words that can be used to describe them. Not having words to describe “hunger” doesn’t make the hunger pangs go away, and inherent needs for justice and freedom don’t go away through language manipulation.
The same could be said about introducing words into our vocabulary. Words can be used to get us to “buy in” to certain concepts or narratives.
“Conspiracy theory” works like a shut-off valve. When something is described as a conspiracy theory, we shut down and stop pursuing it—or rather, we did at one time.
A word like “cis” means you identify as the gender you were born, essentially meaning you are normal. But by referring to “normal” people as being “cis,” it now makes being “trans” appear to be a more normal alternative. It’s no longer normal versus trans, it’s cis and trans; each become more equal, trans becomes more normalized.
If you aren’t a slave to the Cabal narratives, you are considered a “denier”. If you don’t believe the world will end in seven years, you are a “climate denier.” If you don’t believe men can get pregnant, you are a “transphobe”.
It shifts the crazy from the crazy person to the person who is unwilling to accept the crazy idea. Having normal, healthy thoughts and beliefs becomes an alternative, not the standard—an equal weighted alternative to the crazy idea, or in extreme cases, logic becomes hateful and repressive.
Calling a woman a “plus size” model alters one’s perception of her. Calling her something different affects how she is perceived. The words we use to describe something affects how we perceive it. It’s mind control. And why does one need to call her a plus size model in the first place? It’s not inclusive. Why not just call her a model? But if you call her a model, one will think “she’s quite fat” because the word model conveys thinness to us. The words we use change everything.
What happens when you start calling mothers “birthing people?” You remove the most important part of being a mother—her love for her child. By changing “mother” to “birthing person,” it becomes a one-time, factory like event. It removes the ongoing love and sacrifice that goes into raising children. It lessens the bond between a child and their mother. Furthermore, lessening a mother’s perceived role in the raising of a child increases the role the government and government schools play in shaping a child’s life.
Compliance to the narratives and the controlling measures to adhere to the narratives diminishes a person’s ability and desire to think—to have an independent thought. When one displays their “pronouns” on their social media profile to be in compliance with the controller’s narrative, one shrinks the pasture their thoughts have to roam. The more one complies, the more the area that houses one’s thoughts shrinks. Eventually, one’s thoughts are trapped in a prison cell.
How does one argue with a person who no longer has the capacity to think, whose mind is incarcerated?
We spew words without any meaning behind them, like a duck quacking. A disconnect between thought and words occurs. We parrot the words we are told to use to avoid friction and resistance, not understanding that resistance is what makes us stronger. The more we cower to the unrighteous authority, the less ability we have to fight back.
What’s the answer to it all?
Fight it … stay true to what you know.
This doesn’t mean fighting, insulting and arguing with people. It means one should resist the force being applied to them personally … resist the pressure to comply.
Don’t allow the Cabal to extinguish your ability to think. Resist the pressure to quack like a duck. But arguing with people who have lost the ability to think logically is pointless. Arguing with them in their state of mind only makes things worse; it causes them to retreat even deeper into their irrational mind.
Live your life the way you know it should be lived, and don’t change to comply and fit in. The words we use matter, as words change how we think. Being respectful doesn’t mean playing along with someone’s psychological disorder.
(Sorry, but I refuse to call you by your unicorn name. I’m not going to insult you, but I’m not going to promote your disorder either.)
What is the line from the 1983 movie, War Games?
“The only winning move is not to play.”
There is something to be said about this. We mustn’t fuel the emotions of those who are driven by emotions rather than logic. The game can’t be played without an adversary, and their emotions can’t be fueled if we refuse to play the game.
So don’t play the game.
