America's government and finances now running purely on perception, smoke and mirrors
by Mike Adams
The reason the national media was recently ordered by the White House to halt all reporting on Ebola is because controlling perception is now more important than dealing with reality. While legitimate measures to halt a viral pandemic are abandoned -- quarantines, border security and travel restrictions -- the real government effort is now being focused on controlling the perception of the pandemic.
If the public realizes a pandemic is on the loose in the United States of America, the thinking goes, they might freak out and lose faith in government.
Faith in government, in turn, is the only thing holding government together at the moment... and that faith is rapidly waning. Americans are by and large losing faith in the CDC, the IRS, the Secret Service, the FDA and even the USDA. Satisfaction with government is approaching all-time lows, and the resounding results of this week's mid-term elections show a wholesale rejection of the government currently running things in America.
To protect the perception that government knows what it's doing, Ebola is now being fought with smoke and mirrors rather than quarantines and border security. While possible Ebola carrier Nurse Hickox was allowed to travel freely among the public, that same public was being intentionally isolated with a kind of "news quarantine" blackout on Ebola.
We have now entered the era of such political insanity that Ebola quarantines are actively rejected by the government while news quarantines are actively erected. As long as the people aren't aware of what's really happening, then everything will be fine, we're supposed to believe. So "perception management" becomes the top priority in Washington.
The entire financial system now hangs by a perception thread
Nowhere is this more true than in the bubble stock market that now looked poised for a disastrous crash. A highly informative article explaining all this was recently written by Brandon Smith on Alt-Market.com. It's entitled We Have Just Witnessed The Last Gasp Of The Global Economy.
"There is literally nothing left to the financial system but rigged statistics, false promises, and ever expanding debt," Brandon writes. "The fact that many market traders clearly KNOW that it's all a farce, and are actually banking and betting on the scam, tells me exactly how close we are to the end of the line. ...In almost every instance of market decline, financial news group Reuters has injected false rumors of more stimulus from the European Central Bank. This was also the case in October as markets began to crash. These rumors were later dashed by the Financial Times, but not before the mere mention of more fiat stimulus from any central bank sent stocks soaring yet again."
He also writes:
They know that the entire system is rigged by central banks, and they don't care. In fact, they revel in it. The only goal of your average day trader now is to profit on the scam for as long as humanly possible, even though the ultimate conclusion of the scam will mean the utter destruction of their profits and the end of their way of life.
In the financial markets, you see, "perception, smoke and mirrors" is the only thing keeping the system afloat. That's why so much effort is now placed in managing public perception through the planting of false QE rumors, the rigging of government economic statistics, price manipulations of gold and silver, and even plunge protection activities timed to give last-ditch buoyancy to plummeting stocks.
What do Ebola, financial markets and the government all have in common?
What's fascinating to me about all this is just how fragile and flimsy everything has become in society. We've already witnessed in Dallas how U.S. hospitals can't even handle Ebola-infected patients without spreading Ebola to medical staff and nearly locking up virtually all medical resources of the entire hospital.
The CDC is so panicked about managing public perception that it actually censored itself, scrubbing its own "aerosolized particles" document that admitted Ebola can be spread through coughing, sneezing and contaminated objects such as doorknobs.
The raw truth about Ebola is now such a threat to the CDC's management of public perception that even the very basics of virology and infectious disease science must be strenuously denied, retracted and censored by the CDC itself, an agency that ridiculously claims to be based on science in the first place.
The Obama administration, meanwhile, is running on such fumes that it actually ordered the national media to stop reporting Ebola stories to the public. Smacking of the kind of centralized, dictatorial news censorship you might see in China or the old U.S.S.R., the United States of America now has no free press. Virtually all conventional media outlets simply parrot whatever the government tells them to print. Those "approved" stories predictably center on blatant disinfo like how great the economic recovery is (yeah, right), the incredible explosion in new job creation (an outright falsehood), why the vaccine industry will save us all from Ebola (sure they will) and other similar nonsense such as stories claiming gold is a horrible thing to buy (because paper dollars are so much better, obviously).
We are all treated like children watching a puppet theater
The information coming out of the government today is so corrupted and false that almost every single word uttered by any government "authority" must be assumed to be a deliberate lie or distortion from the outset. There is zero transparency, zero truth, zero accountability and no real plan for navigating a future that's sure to be filled with pandemics, debt implosions, social chaos and political strife at every turn. Instead of being told anything that might actually be true, we are instead treated as children watching a puppet theater show, where a laughably juvenile narrative is played out in front of us that we're supposed to accept as real.
The drug companies love humanity and only want to save lives. The biotech industry only wants to feed the world and isn't interested in monopolistic profiteering. Politicians are "public servants," not greedy criminals and control freaks who exploit their power positions for personal profit. The media tells you all the important news and never leaves anything out that you should really know. The stock market is an honest system that isn't rigged at all, so keep putting your retirement money there! ...These are just a few of the silly narratives being played out before us in the puppet theater of America.
If you want to bring in even more government agencies, the narrative gets even more insane: Vitamins are bad for you, but GMOs are great for you. Home-grown food from your garden might be dangerous, but homogenized, sterilized, microwaved processed food is safe and nutritious! Raw milk is only sold by dangerous criminals who try to harm you with bacteria, but 75% of the fresh chicken at the grocery store is contaminated with salmonella, and that's perfectly safe, says the FDA.
The contradictions in the narrative are laughable and pathetic at the same time. And the more the public wakes up to these contradictions, the more they lose faith in the failed systems of government, medicine and media that have all conspired to worsen these problems in the first place.
Truth is treason
In an age of deceit, truth is treason. That's why those who attempt to utter the truth are routinely censored, attacked and defamed while those who tell the most outrageous lies are celebrated and often given awards (such as the Nobel Peace Prize). Google News, for example, will not carry any news source that isn't on board with the institutional lies that now dominate America's news cycle. All you have to do to be banned from Google News is to publish a single article interviewing a scientist who says mercury is a toxic heavy metal that shouldn't be added to flu shots.
The truth is so dangerous to the system now that even a scientist warning about mercury in flu shots presents an unacceptable risk of altering the public perception which has been so carefully engineered with 24/7 disinfo media in the form of CNN or MSNBC, a media organization owned in part by Microsoft (the "MS" stands for Microsoft) which was of course founded by the same guy running around funding population reduction vaccine technologies (Bill Gates).
Most people have no real idea that the world described to them by "official sources" is an imaginary world... a fairy tale fable being played out in front of them in order to maintain control. What is the Matrix? "It is the world that has pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth," said Morpheus.
And because the human psyche has to believe in something, government and media create an elaborate fictional construct which is broadcast into your brain almost every waking minute of the day. This narrative ultimately comes down to a message of "Don't think for yourself." That's the first step to enslavement: convince a population to stop thinking for itself while force-feeding it a relentless stream of government disinformation disguised as news.
It won't be long before the system doesn't even need you
Lest you experience concern over the reality of all this, don't worry: the system won't need you for very long. The rise of humanoid robotics paired with AI systems -- a research avenue that Google is aggressively pursuing -- will soon make most humans obsolete.
Before long, there will be no need for fast food restaurant workers to march in the streets for $15 / hour wages because all their jobs will be taken over by humanoid robots. And what will government decide to do with all these displaced, unskilled minimum wage workers who have nothing whatsoever to contribute to an automated society? Well, there's always the soylent green burger solution. On sale now! Over five billion served!
The truth is that you are already viewed as being cattle. From the point of view of government, we are all inconsequential members of a massive human herd, roaming a "tax farm" that siphons off the highest percentage of our economic productivity they can get away with. The only reason the system needs any of us right now is because robots can't yet flip burgers, paint houses or run the cash registers at Whole Foods. But it won't be long before they can, and every corporate employer in the world will replace humans with robots as rapidly as possible, creating a flood of recently-unemployed, unskilled workers who are angry and hungry. The system will quickly find a way to eliminate them, no doubt. Legalized euthanasia is already on the drawing board...
The false narratives of the next few years only exist to keep you occupied and entertained until the day comes that you are obsolete. The reason you are never told the truth about what's really happening is the same reason that farmers don't tell their cattle about the slaughterhouse. For starters, the cattle don't understand what you're saying, and even if they did, they wouldn't believe the story and would probably accuse the farmer of being a "fear monger."
How to reject the fairy tale and live in the real world
So look around you at the fictional world unfolding at your feet every single day. And remind yourself to literally "keep it real" by learning real-world skills like home gardening, food preservation and basic mechanical skills.
Fictional worlds come and go -- much like nations and currencies -- but the real world of soil, seeds, rainwater and firewood is the only world which will exist after the illusions collapse. You do not have to remain focused on the world of delusion. You can reject it and decide to focus your attention on things of substance: farmland, rainwater collection, permaculture, precious metals and your own physical fitness, to name just a few. In fact, I say the more you focus on what's real, the happier you'll be regardless of what unfolds.
Stock market valuations are not real. The promises made in drug company advertisements are not real. The election promises made by politicians are not real. Your bank account is not even real; it's just an electronic record of binary data which can be erased or altered at any time. Paper money is not real. Pink ribbons cancer fundraisers are not real. Even many of the so-called "domestic terrorism" events halted by the FBI were entirely staged by the FBI as a form of law enforcement theater.
Stop believing in the world of delusion and start living in the real world. You'll be much happier there, and you'll be far better prepared to survive in the real world during the aftermath of the collapse of delusion. Remember: the most horrifying thing to most mainstream people is the loss of their delusions. When the system they believe in collapses, they will panic for the simple reason that they have never lived in the real world and are entirely unfamiliar with it.
Want to get started? Read the amazing book series "299 Days" by Glen Tate. It's also available as an audio book series on Audible.com. This series gets off to a slow start, but it's the most thoughtful and authentic collapse novel I've ever read. Very insightful and highly recommended.
In the mean time, keep it real.
