My Great Awakening Moment

 I don’t know if you can actually put a moment on it. I had been researching beyond the mainstream gatekeepers since 2011 when I finally followed up on a friend’s question, “Have you watched ‘Loose Change 911′?

After that, I read a Doug Casey book as a joke to myself and some of what he said actually stuck.

Looking things up and watching YouTube videos led to me subscribing to YouTube videos. What I found on YouTube was so compelling that I couldn’t get enough… an unfiltered, self-directed learning platform where you can find experts on any subject, reporting out of their own drive to share the truth and interact with others.

After a while I started to follow news topics and events on my favorite YouTube channels as much as I followed everyday mainstream outlets so that I was able to compare the two.

I was bemused to find that the mainstream media and alternative media’s reports on topics and events were sometimes totally opposite.

After hearing about a book called Confessions of an Economic Hit Man and the previous The Big Short I had started to become skeptical of mainstream media’s take on current events, especially since the 2008 economic shakeup that eventually led to my own layoff.

It was the expatiated FED meeting in Washington D.C. in April 2016 when my understanding switched.

That moment was when the red pill hit me.

I became fully aware that the media was controlled, or colluding, because that entire weekend and that entire day, not a word was mentioned about it on any mainstream site. Only around 8pm did NPR include a brief mention of it in their hourly news update, and said nothing of substance about it or mention it’s historic nature.

I don’t know what happened at that meeting because it’s all kept secret, but one thing was clear, the alternative media was reporting about it as soon as it was announced and the mainstream media didn’t mention it until after it was over, and they didn’t give any details about it.

That was a day that changed my life. That was the day that I decided to leave D.C. and commit to learning and spreading the truth.

Below are links to blog stories about that day.

Emergency at the Fed?

ainsliebullion.com 13/04/2016

Mike Maloney released yesterday some interesting analysis of this week’s Federal Reserve activity and is hypothesising that something ominous may be occurring behind closed doors.

On Monday of this week, the Federal Reserve Board of Governors held an impromptu meeting using expedited (some use the vernacular “emergency”) procedures. The purpose was to discuss monetary policy. Thereafter, Chairwoman Yellen visited the President at the White House for another irregular meeting. Interestingly, both meetings were closed door in nature and passed largely under the mainstream media radar.

A google search of the Yellen-Obama meeting produces many largely identical articles containing what Mike refers to as “fluff”; meaning simply that they lack substances and convey only the simple idea that the two discussed the economy.

Fed Meeting April 2016

What the White House meeting overshadowed was the actual Federal Reserve Board of Governors meeting on the 11th, held under expedited procedures as indicated on the Fed’s website above. The purpose of that meeting was stipulated as being to review and determine advance and discount rates to be charged by the Federal Reserve Banks – or in other words, set monetary policy. The press always reports on these meetings. As indicated on the Federal Reserve’s website, this meeting was scheduled last Thursday, April 7th. Again however, an attempt to google this board meeting largely produces results about the White House meeting. Googling “Fed Governor Meeting” produces largely results about the April 6th Federal Reserve Board of Governors meeting and notably, more information about the White House meeting again. As a consequence, we do not know what was said at these meetings – in particular the board meeting of the 11th. One thing that is known however is that the invocation of “expedited procedures” is unusual.

Moving over to the White House website one can find a one paragraph press release pictured below. The release generically describes the Yellen-Obama meeting to be about “near and long-term growth outlook, the state of the labour market, inequality and potential risks to the economy” which seems to be the only information that the press has reported on.

WHAT’S UP WITH THAT EMERGENCY FED MEETING?

Joseph P. Farrell  April 17, 2016

You probably heard that last week, President Obama and Vice-President Biden met with Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen behind closed doors. That fact alone should have raised eyebrows and for those in-the-know it probably did, for as a matter of normal security protocols, meetings or appearances both of the President and Vice-President in one place and at the same time are strictly limited for security purposes. From this one fact alone one may deduce that the meeting was about “serious matters” but the question is: what exactly?

A number of regular readers here have shared various articles addressing this various question, and thus I share them with the wider readership here for your consideration.

First of all, there is the admission of Goldman Sachs and Wells Fargo to having comitted some deep financial “improprieties”:

Goldman and Wells Fargo FINALLY Admit They Committed Fraud

Here are the two admissions of fact in a nutshell:

What in the World is Going on with Banks this Week? Emergency Meetings, Banker Summits, Crashing European Banks, and the Worst Bank Reports Since the Great Recession

By David Haggith

Just about every major banker and finance minister in the world is meeting in Washington, DC, this week, following two rushed, secretive meetings of the Federal Reserve and another instantaneous and rare meeting between the Fed Chair and the president of the United States. These and other emergency bank meetings around the world cause one to wonder what is going down. Let’s start with a bullet list of the week’s big-bank events:

  • The Federal Reserve Board of Governors just held an “expedited special meeting” on Monday in closed-door session.
  • The White House made an immediate announcement that the president was going to meet with Fed Chair Janet Yellen right after Monday’s special meeting and that Vice President Biden would be joining them.
  • The Federal Reserve very shortly posted an announcement of another expedited closed-door meeting for Tuesday for the specific purpose of “bank supervision.”
  • A G-20 meeting of finance ministers and central-bank heads starts in Washington, DC, on Tuesday, too, and continues through Wednesday.
  • Then on Thursday the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund meet in Washington.
  • The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta just revised US GDP growth for the first quarter to the precipice of recession at 0.1%.
  • US banks are widely expected this week to report their worst quarter financially since the start of the Great Recession.
  • The European Union’s new “bail-in” procedures for failing banks were employed for the first time with Austrian bank Heta Asset Resolution AG.
  • Italy’s minister of finance called an emergency meeting of Italian bankers to engage “last resort” measures for dealing with 360-billion euros of bad loans in banks that have only 50 billion in capital.

After the Kavanaugh Allegations Came Out, Christine Blasey Ford’s High School Yearbooks Taken Down, to Hide of Bad Behavior

Yeah, the kids were pretty crazy back then… be a shame if people had this context to those allegations… guess that’s why the school took them down as soon as the accusations went public.

WHY CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD’S HIGH SCHOOL YEARBOOKS WERE SCRUBBED: Faculty Approved Racism, Binge Drinking and Promiscuity

CULT OF THE 1ST AMENDMENT   Wednesday, September 19, 2018

On Monday Sept. 17th, Christine Blasey Ford’s high school yearbooks suddenly disappeared from the web. I read them days before, knew they would be scrubbed, and saved them. Why did I know they would be scrubbed? Because if roles were reversed, and Christine Blasey Ford had been nominated for the Supreme Court by President Trump, the headline by the resistance would be this:

CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD AND THE DRUNKEN WHITE PRIVILEGED RACIST PLAYGIRLS OF HOLTON-ARMS.

And it would be an accurate headline. That’s why the yearbooks have been scrubbed. They are a testament to the incredible power these girls had over their teachers, parents and the boys of Georgetown Prep, Landon and other schools in the area. In the pages below, you will see multiple photos and references to binge drinking and the accompanying joy of not being able to remember any of it.

These yearbooks are, therefore, relevant to the national investigation now being conducted in the media, in homes, and in the halls of Congress. And they should not have been scrubbed. If Brett Kavanaugh’s yearbooks are fair game, so are these.

And you will wonder while reading them, why the hell did the faculty approve of these yearbooks? Why did the parents take out paid ads in these yearbooks? Animal House had nothing on the infamous “Holton party scene”.

What is Treason?

Ever heard of an ex-president going around trash talking their predecessor, much less calling him and his supporters Nazis?

What a totally insane state of affairs in the United States that this is acceptable behavior and that the media pushes it. We understand though that these people are most likely traitors, desperate and scared. They will lie and gaslight the people until their very end.

Obama - What magic wand does Trump Have

Obama Condemns Trump, “Nazi Sympathizers” In Fiery Speech Warning Of “Dangerous Times” 

Former President Obama jumped into the political fray on Friday, lashing out at Donald Trump by name in what appears to be his first crack at energizing Democrats for midterms.

Trump says he fell asleep.

NYT Flashback: “If Donald Trump Targets Journalists, Thank Obama”

Former President Obama has come under fire for what many have viewed as a hypocritical condemnation of President Trump during a Friday acceptance speech for his Ethics in Government award at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

In particular, critics are slamming Obama for his comments regarding Trump’s criticism of the press – while casually minimizing his own actions against journalists and whistleblowers:

It shouldn’t be Democratic or Republican to say that we don’t threaten the freedom of the press because they say things or publish stories we don’t like. I complained plenty about Fox News, but you never heard me threaten to shut them down or call them enemies of the people. -Barack Obama

Except Obama did much, much more than that…

In addition to prosecuting more whistleblowers than all previous presidents combined, the Obama administration targeted then-Fox News journalist James Rosen as a “criminal co-conspirator” for protecting his sources in a DOJ leak investigation.

And while Obama’s defenders have attempted to downplay his actions, the overwhelming consensus appears to be that the former President is a massive hypocrite.

Why Don’t We Ever Hear About Our Involvement in the Yemen War? Companies like Lockheed Martin Probably Know

How many shares of your favorite media outlet or website does Lockheed Martin own? How much of Lockheed do they own?

How many federal and state politicians does Lockheed contribute donations or hire as lobbyists?

Now why don’t we hear about the Yemen war?

Guided Bomb Fragments At Site Of Yemen Bus Airstrike Trace Back To Lockheed Martin

A prominent Yemeni journalist who throughout the war has been instrumental in getting images and information out of the country ahead of Western journalists has photographed and examined fragments from one of the exploded missiles found at the site of the US-Saudi coalition airstrike on a school bus in Yemen, which left as many as 50 people dead and 63 injured — the vast majority of which were children

The image of the missile fragment, believed to be among those that scored a direct hit on the bus full of children traveling through Dahyan market in Saada province last Thursday, was uploaded by Sanaa-based Hussain Albukhaiti and quickly spread online over the weekend. It appears to be a US-made MK-82 guided bomb produced by Lockheed Martin.

Ben Norton, an American journalist among the first to track down publicly available government contract information showing the MK-82’s likely origins, said of the bomb fragment imagery: “Yemeni journalists found this fragment of the bomb Saudi Arabia dropped on a school bus full of children in Yemen. It’s a US-made MK-82 guided bomb, which has been used in previous attacks on Yemeni civilians. The cage code on the bomb is Lockheed Martin’s.

More Mainstream Media Lies and Lying

Carefully Selected News Stories to Manipulate

MSNBC Does Not Merely Permit Fabrications Against Democratic Party Critics. It Encourages and Rewards Them.

July 8 2018

DURING THE 2016 primary and general election campaigns, various MSNBC hosts were openly campaigning for Hillary Clinton. One of the network’s programs featured Malcolm Nance (pictured above), whose background is quite sketchy but is presented by the cable network (and now by NBC News) as an “intelligence expert” and former intelligence officer for the U.S. Navy.

On August 20, 2016, weekend host Joy Reid asked Nance about the supposed “affinity” for Russia harbored by Jill Stein supporters. In response, Nance told MSNBC viewers: “Jill Stein has a show on Russia Today.”

Whatever your views might be about Stein and her third-party candidacy, there is no disputing the fact that Nance’s statement was a falsehood, a fabrication, a lie. Stein did not have a show on RT, nor did she ever host a show on RT. What Nance said was made up out of whole cloth — fabricated — in order to encourage MSNBC viewers to believe that Stein, one of the candidates running against Clinton, was a paid agent of the Kremlin and employee of RT.

Facebook partners with Atlantic Council to improve election security

ALI BRELAND – 

Facebook announced on Thursday that it is launching a partnership with the Atlantic Council to boost its global election security efforts.

Experts from the international think tank’s Digital Forensic Research Lab will help provide Facebook “real-time insights and updates on emerging threats and disinformation campaigns from around the world.”

Facebook said it will also use the Atlantic Council’s Digital Research Unit Monitoring Missions during elections and other “highly sensitive moments,” according to a post written by Facebook’s global politics and government outreach director, Katie Harbath.

The social media company will also consult with the Atlantic Council to address other political security issues that could arise on its platform.

The partnership comes as a part of Facebook’s efforts to beef up election security on its platforms following some groups attempting to use it as a tool to interfere in other countries’ elections.

The company has fielded heavy criticism from politicians over how Russian trolls spread misinformation and attempted to sow discord during the 2016 presidential race. Foreign groups attempted similar operations in other countries’ elections as well.

Though the most firey criticism directed at Facebook over the issue of election security has come from the U.S., the company said that it is focused on making sure its platform can’t be manipulated by nefarious groups abroad as well.

Why Was the Establishment so Against a Trump/Putin Summit?

Make Earth Great Again Trump and Putin in Helsinki

Because they were afraid someone would say something very inconvenient, like Putin did:

For instance, we can bring up Mr. Browder, in this particular case.  Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over $1.5 billion in Russia and never paid any taxes neither in Russia or the United States and yet the money escaped the country. They were transferred to the United States. They sent [a] huge amount of money, $400,000,000, as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton.  Well that’s their personal case.

It might have been legal, the contribution itself but the way the money was earned was illegal.  So we have solid reason to believe that some [US] intelligence officers accompanied and guided these transactions.  So we have an interest in questioning them.

This Browder guy is apparently a hedge fund billionaire that plundered Russia during the post-Soviet era, effectively steeling tons of Russian wealth in the regulatory confusion. Then he snuk the money out of Russia, without paying any taxes (according to Putin.) 

According to Philip Giraldi at The Strategic Culture Foundation, that’s not all. Browder has been up to plenty since the late nineties.

Browder is also symptomatic of why the United States government is so poorly informed about international developments as he is the source of much of the Congressional “expert testimony” contributing to the current impasse. He has somehow emerged as a trusted source in spite of the fact that he has self-interest in cultivating a certain outcome. Also ignored is his renunciation of American citizenship in 1998, reportedly to avoid taxes. He is now a British citizen.

Browder is notoriously the man behind the 2012 Magnitsky Act, which exploited Congressional willingness to demonize Russia and has done so much to poison relations between Washington and Moscow. The Act sanctioned individual Russian officials, which Moscow has rightly seen as unwarranted interference in the operation of its judicial system.

Browder, a media favorite who self-promotes as “Putin’s enemy #1,” portrays himself as a selfless human rights advocate, but is he? He has used his fortune to threaten lawsuits for anyone who challenges his version of events, effectively silencing many critics. He claims that his accountant Sergei Magnitsky was a crusading “lawyer” who discovered a $230 million tax-fraud scheme that involved the Browder business interest Hermitage Capital but was, in fact, engineered by corrupt Russian police officers who arrested Magnitsky and enabled his death in a Russian jail.

Many have been skeptical of the Browder narrative, suspecting that the fraud was in fact concocted by Browder and his accountant Magnitsky. A Russian court recently supported that alternative narrative, ruling in late December that Browder had deliberately bankrupted his company and engaged in tax evasion. He was sentenced to nine years prison in absentia.

William Browder is again in the news recently in connection with testimony related to Russiagate. On December 16th Senator Diane Feinstein of the Senate Judiciary Committee released the transcript of the testimony provided by Glenn Simpson, founder of Fusion GPS. According to James Carden, Browder was mentioned 50 times, but the repeated citations apparently did not merit inclusion in media coverage of the story by the New York Times, Washington Post and Politico.

Fusion GPS, which was involved in the research producing the Steele Dossier used to discredit Donald Trump, was also retained to provide investigative services relating to a lawsuit in New York City involving a Russian company called Prevezon. As information provided by Browder was the basis of the lawsuit, his company and business practices while in Russia became part of the investigation. Simmons maintained that Browder proved to be somewhat evasive and his accounts of his activities were inconsistent. He claimed never to visit the United States and not own property or do business there, all of which were untrue, to include his ownership through a shell company of a $10 million house in Aspen Colorado. He repeatedly ran away, literally, from attempts to subpoena him so he would have to testify under oath.

Per Simmons, in Russia, Browder used shell companies locally and also worldwide to avoid taxes and conceal ownership, suggesting that he was likely one of many corrupt businessmen operating in what was a wild west business environment. My question is, “Why was such a man granted credibility and allowed a free run to poison the vitally important US-Russia relationship?” The answer might be follow the money. Israel Shamir reports that Browder was a major contributor to Senator Ben Cardin of Maryland, who was the major force behind the Magnitsky Act.

Of course the oligarch owned-and-controlled media at Politifact, WaPo and NYTimes have rolled out their lazy-brained “fact checks,” all relying on the idea that:
– Browder is an upstanding patriot that would never break the law,
– that that donation was never reported by the Clinton campaign,
– if they had taken that much money it would have been illegal,

If you read these entire articles, you can see for yourself that they’re gas lighting again, which is mouthing off a bunch of inanity and fallacies to deflect the real issues being raised.

It’s true that, it would have been illegal to take that much money from a single source (and to also not report it.) But what if the someones we’re talking about broke the law?

Judging from the reactions of some of the Deep State, they aren’t too happy. For instance, the claim of treason made by former CIA director Brennan…

Last Rablings of a Gitmo Detainee Brennan

…Also, there was the call for “patriots to stand up and reject the behavior” of this [sitting U.S. president,] from former FBI Director Comey…

It sure does seem like the Putin and Trump summit stirred up the Deep State’s Pretty Hate, propaganda machine. It will be very interesting to see if anything comes out of this.
