Years ago, when I was at the University studying mathematics and philosophy, I would wander down to the most excellent library and ply my way through some of the more exotic periodicals. Two were particularly interesting. One was called ‘Defense Attaché’; a magazine which advertised military weapons like tanks, jets, automatic guns, ammo, bombs, missiles, etc. Unlike most magazines I had read about the military prior to this, Defense Attaché was unabashed and completely unafraid to reveal their real purpose; which was to sell implements of death and destruction to anyone with money. The ads were nonchalant and matter of fact about what they were selling; and amazingly they used the same advertising techniques found on Madison Avenue. One ad for a tank showed a man sitting on the tank with his pals smoking a cigarette with a very satisfied look on his face. His arm resting on the gun turret and he was bragging about how many people he had just killed before lunch, etc. What was also amazing was all the ‘mom and pop’ ‘All-American’ companies who advertised in Defense Attaché like Garcia fishing rods, Ralston Purina, etc. They were all in on this very lucrative business of blowing their fellow humans to smithereens without a second thought.
Since that time, I’ve tried to get a copy of Defense Attaché, but it has completely disappeared or perhaps it still exists but is not readily available via a Google search. The IDE and Conference video below reminds me of Defense Attaché’s shopping mall atmosphere.

Anatidaephobia: the fear that somewhere, somehow, a duck is watching you
Wouldn’t surprise me to find ‘Anatidaephobia’ in the fanciful and non-scientific book of psyches and propaganda entitled ‘Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)’ where everything is a disorder. The DSM is the Psyche’s attempt at creating their own PDR (Physician’s Desk Reference) thus giving them the appearance of legitimacy and therefore allowing them to attach to the great money teat of qualified health insurance. However, the duck picture featured here is a very funny and interesting picture. And, I’ve often wondered if some humans possess a 6th sense alerting them when someone is secretly watching. BTW, the DSM is just another example of science by consensus masquerading as real science. Anyone capable of critical thought recognizes that science by consensus is not science at all but propaganda. Don’t buy their BS. Think for yourself. Beyond the muting and the destruction of countless lives, you will find behind the DSM are billions of dollars in Big Pharma psych drugs which are the proximate cause and are at the scene of the crime of the majority of the mass murders we view in horror in today’s headlines. Yet this fact is lost on our MSM (“Mainstream Media“). Despite documented evidence that gun ownership in the USA reduces crime, these crimes are attributed rather to gun ownership by the media which receive 70% or their advertising revenue from Big Pharma. At the same time, there exists some evidence that certain psychoactive drugs when used properly can have short-term, beneficial effects for psychosis and for bipolar disorder; however, long-term they are not curative and don’t treat the root of the problem. It is important to also read the warning labels on most of these drugs which include “Homicidal & Suicidal Ideation”, which explains much of the irrational carnage we find at gun-free schools, movie theaters, etc.
“Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts.” – Richard Feynman
Scientist in Lab Coat
I’m a scientist at heart, so why do I love to ridicule my fellow scientists so much? I think it’s because of their highly exalted and unassailable position in our so called modern era (1946 – present) and because so many are sellouts who serve the selfish agendas of the moneyed “powers that shouldn’t be” and more particularly many serve down-right evil corporations that just happen to sign the front side of their paychecks, provide grants and donate huge sums to our likewise exalted and corrupted universities … and it’s also partly due to the fact so many people have been trained that if someone in a lab coat says something then it has to be true. Turn off your brain… case settled.
Though many scientists are waking up to the systemic fraud and deception throughout our scientific community, the average citizen is completely unaware.
And it appears that the ‘Scientific American’ wants to have it both ways. First they are more than willing to point out the fraud, yet they are themselves a big part of the fraud perpetrated on the hapless public as evidenced by their two articles below. One supports GMO with trickery and sleight of hand while the other article complains about ‘An Epidemic of False Claims’ in scientific studies. You can’t have it both ways, Mr. Scientific American.
I’ve been reading the Scientific American since I was twelve, yes twelve years old; though I can’t claim I understood what I was reading at that age. With all the colorful diagrams and mathematical formulas, I just knew they were talking about something important and wanted to know what it was.
So what is the evidence that the once exalted Scientific American is one of the worst offenders? If you read their article below in support of GMOs, you will discover that they have munged or commingled several terms thereby obfuscating their meanings to suit their preconceived conclusions.
I really get the promise of GMO providing food to the hungry (though recent data has disproved this benefit), but I would prefer to use artificial or natural selection, not transginic bioengineering using gene-splicing and gene insertion from different species. I just don’t trust Monsanto and now I don’t trust SA. I think this article represents the best of bad science: The SA article cleverly commingles several terms: Selective breeding, Artificial selection, Bioengineering and GMO and would therefore have the reader believe they are the same. They are not. And there is a huge difference between Cisgenic and Transgenic. I would prefer Cisgenic only because I don’t think man is smart enough to have a clue about what he is doing. Of course we need to have GMO labeling. I don’t care if my food has been selectively bred: examples are the Delicious apple, the Hereford cow, etc. because in selective breeding you are breeding cow to cow or apple to apple; NOT cow to virus or cow to rat or pig or cow to cockroach…or some other unknown concoction Monsanto may have created. I want to know if there is virus, bacteria, transgenic DNA/RNA in my food and I want to know if there is Glyphosate a.k.a. Roundup® on my food and I want to know if it is safe. Another undisclosed issue is that when GMO corn pollinates adjacent fields of heirloom corn, it destroys for all time the genetics of that heirloom corn. On a global stage, this could be devastating.
Another glaring flaw in this SA article is that they seem content on referring to “other” authorities. Just give me the science … after all aren’t you Scientific American?
Vol 385 April 11, 2015 by Richard Horton Offline: What is medicine’s 5 sigma? (PDF) “A lot of what is published is incorrect.” I’m not allowed to say who made this remark because we were asked to observe Chatham House rules. We were also asked not to take photographs of slides. Those who worked for government agencies pleaded that their comments especially remain unquoted, since the forthcoming UK election meant they were living in “purdah”—a chilling state where severe restrictions on freedom of speech are placed on anyone on the government’s payroll. Why the paranoid concern for secrecy and non-attribution? Because this symposium—on the reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research, held at the Wellcome Trust in London last week—touched on one of the most sensitive issues in science today: the idea that something has gone fundamentally wrong with one of our greatest human creations.”
HughPickens.com … writes in today’s Slash Dot the following brilliant little ditty…
“Richard Horton writes that a recent symposium on the reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research discussed one of the most sensitive issues in science today: the idea that something has gone fundamentally wrong with science (PDF), one of our greatest human creations. The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness. According to Horton, editor-in-chief of The Lancet, a United Kingdom-based medical journal, the apparent endemicity of bad research behavior is alarming. In their quest for telling a compelling story, scientists too often sculpt data to fit their preferred theory of the world or retrofit hypotheses to fit their data.”
“Can bad scientific practices be fixed? Part of the problem is that no-one is incentivized to be right. Instead, scientists are incentivized to be productive and innovative. Tony Weidberg says that the particle physics community now invests great effort into intensive checking and rechecking of data prior to publication following several high-profile errors. By filtering results through independent working groups, physicists are encouraged to criticize. Good criticism is rewarded. The goal is a reliable result, and the incentives for scientists are aligned around this goal. “The good news is that science is beginning to take some of its worst failings very seriously,” says Horton. “The bad news is that nobody is ready to take the first step to clean up the system.”
Fort Hood has put a boot on the ground for every American life lost in Iraq and Afghanistan. A powerful memorial. Yet, another way to honor the war dead is to put a stop to all these pointless, unconstitutional wars.
If you have time to read the three well-researched and documented books by Antony C. Sutton listed here …
1) Wall Street & the Rise of Hitler; 2) Wall Street and FDR; 3) Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution: The Remarkable True Story of the American Capitalists Who Financed the Russian Communists … the self-righteous myths that tell us the USA is all about the spreading of democracy and the protecting of freedom will become an obvious, painful hoax to you. Yes, I too believed in these myths, but after the JFK assassination, the Gulf of Tonkin incident and the obvious coverup concerning the attacks on 9/11, it was finally time for me to dig in, invest some time and take a closer look at what our government was actually doing. Do I disparage our brave soldiers who fight to protect this country; who believe they are fighting for truth, justice and the American way? Not at all. I honor their well-intended sacrifices. But I am now aware of the deals made behind closed doors, as documented by Carroll Quigley (Anglo-American Establishment), Sutton and other top historians that base their research — not on official establishment propaganda– but on the facts as they find them; thereby removing the political spin and propaganda that we have all grown up believing. This is the critical point for me: If we care to regain the honorable ideals of a free and prosperous people, we must confront the evil that has infiltrated our government and surreptitiously controls the money system and therefore the government and all its machinery. This can not be done by pretending that facts are not facts. So if you choose to take this brave journey to the truth, buckle your seat-belts, it going to be a bumpy ride.
Here is just one example how our vaulted sultans of American Foreign policy honor our military:
“Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.”
― Henry Kissinger
P.S. And to all my fellow patriotic citizens: Before you go about bashing my head against the wall with your fists, please read the above mentioned three books by Sutton and then we can sit down as adults and talk –not fight– about solutions and the sad predicament we all find ourselves and our beloved America in now on this May 25th, 2015 Memorial Day.
From Wikipedia: Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. The holiday, which is observed every year on the last Monday of May, originated as Decoration Day after the American Civil War in 1868, when the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of Union veterans — established it as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. By the 20th century, competing Union and Confederate holiday traditions, celebrated on different days, had merged, and Memorial Day eventually extended to honor all Americans who died while in the military service. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.
War is a Racket (Video) by Smedley Butler is a famous speech denouncing the military industrial complex. This speech by two-time Congressional Medal of Honor recipient exposes war profits that benefit few at the expense of many. Throughout his distinguished career in the Marines, Smedley Darlington Butler demonstrated that true patriotism does not mean blind allegiance to government policies with which one does not agree. To Hell with war.

I thought about putting together a more detailed sequence of events for Egypt with a timeline, but chose rather to distil into this quick sketch. I may publish the details at a later time since I have already done the research.
Thumbnail sketch of recent events in Egypt:
• President Obama’s brother Malik Obama is in charge of the Muslim Brotherhood’s international investments
• President Obama backed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood in the overthrow of Mubarak
• Morsi sent in fighters to attack the US Compound in Benghazi killing US Ambassador Christopher Stevens who blew the whistle on illegal CIA arms shipments to ISIS
• Morsi was overthrown by Sisi
• New Sisi government said they had documented proof that President Obama was behind the Muslim Brotherhood overthrow and the evidence would destroy the Obama administration. Egyptian Paper Says They Have Proof That President Obama Is A Member Of The Muslim Brotherhood
• US unlocks military aid to Egypt, backing President Sisi
• Egypt’s Gulf allies gave Sisi 23 billion
• The Obama incriminating evidence is forgotten or never existed
• Sisi is now helping Saudi Arabia and the US attacks on Syria and Yemen.
• Morsi is convicted and sentenced to death today by the Sisi government
Did you know …

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years.”
He went on to explain:
“It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.”

Did you know that ‘Conspiracy Theorist’ is a CIA-weaponized term? So every time you hear someone use this in a pejorative manner, just remember that the money you invested in the CIA has been effective and well-spent. Just check out CIA Document 1035-960.
Call me old fashioned, but if we can’t afford to take care of our current veterans, what the hell are we doing starting new wars all across the globe? Libya, Syria, Ukraine, Yemen, etc.
Riddle me this Batman… rumor has it that we were attacked on 9/11 by 15 out of 19 men who were from Saudi Arabia…. soz we decided to attack Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan and not Saudi Arabia? Total cost $7.9 trillion with a ‘t’ and over a million deaths as a result. Was it worth it and what exactly did we accomplish?
On this episode Christoph and I discuss several recent Gladio B revelations from Russia, China and even Kyrgyzstan. First we update listeners on the Boris Nemstov assassination investigation. We discuss how the case has hit a brick wall in terms of suspects and progress. We explain how the main suspect, Zaur Dadev, has recanted almost his entire story. We also discuss how alleged ringleader Ruslan Geremeev has vanished from Russia and is most likely hiding out in Dubai. We then move onto our first Gladio B story with the recent “revelation” from Putin that the FSB has intercepted communications between the US and Chechen terrorists in Azerbaijan. Christoph breaks this down for us and explains the context in which Putin chose to reveal this: a Russian TV documentary on his 15 years in power.
Next we move our focus to China and its ongoing fight against the Gladio B network. We talk about the recent Uighur smuggling rings that have been exposed in Malaysia and Thailand, as well as how South China has become the premier destination for Uighurs who go off to fight in Syria and elsewhere.
We then move on to a bizarre story that was broken by the South China Morning Post about an “American scholar” who was recruiting Uighur students to fight abroad. We wrap up this section by discussing how the CIA-backed Gulen movement has been exploiting this situation to attack the CIA-backed Erdogan government.
As we finish off our Gladio B extravaganza we turn our attention to the mysterious 150 tons of “diplomatic mail” that was delivered to the US embassy in Bishek, Kyrgyzstan. We discuss what might be in this cargo (money, arms, spy equipment) and whether or not this may be part of some sort of “Maidan” color revolution.
We finish of the episode by taking a look at a recent Congressional Hearing that featured Washington’s favorite terrorist cult leader, Maryam Rajavi, leader of the MEK, discussing how best to defeat ISIS.
Egon von Greyerz-World Will Never Be Able to Cope with Leverage of Bond Implosion
Show Notes: Published on May 12, 2015
What could cause the gold market to erupt? Look no further than the bond market says gold expert Egon von Greyerz, “I had somebody, in the last few days, say to me we should probably write off all that debt, and forget about it and write it off, but there is another side to every balance sheet. If you write the debt off, what about all the people lending against that debt? What about all financial institutions that are leveraged against that debt? You are talking about government bond market of something like $60 trillion. The total bond market worldwide is over $100 trillion. So, if you think about that $60 trillion just in government debt, then you look at what the investors have done with that debt. That is collateral for leveraging 3, 4, 5, 10, 20, 40, 50 times, depending on the institution, and if the values of that debt start declining and it is guaranteed to decline . . . and we haven’t even talked about the derivatives, the combination of all that, and the leverage of the implosion will be so big the world will never cope with that.”
So, if so-called collateral of the bonds (debt) is impaired, that leaves gold as the last man standing as the anti-debt. Von Greyerz contends, “The trigger will never be gold. The move up in gold is the consequence of these problems.

And a few personal notes …
Very clever, but dishonest: I just received an email with the subject “David, your membership is about to expire… “Well, well, well … what have we here? I’ve never, ever subscribed to this site and now my membership is about to expire if I don’t cough up some coin, eh? I subscribe to very few paid sites… in fact exactly two (2) paid sites and baby yours ain’t one of ’em so go jump in a lake and eat a booger. Thank you very much.
Did you know here in the Houston area most plastic wading pools are not bought for wading or for children? Each one will hold about 300 lbs. of Crawfish aka Crawdaddys aka Mudbugs.
I wrote a note one time for my daughter to hand deliver to her High School in Denver in which I recommended that they “eat a booger”. They were enraged. They were livid. The next day they verbally accosted my lovely bride in the hall when she went to pick up our daughter. Amy knew nothing of my letter and was thus shocked and surprised until they told her the note was from me, and then she wondered what exactly I was up to pissing off so many people. They even brought my note up at a school board meeting to see if they had some sort of legal or criminal recourse to ply against my insubordination. So what initiated my admonition that they eat a booger? My daughter was exactly 30 seconds late to school one day because all the buses were blocking the drop off point for the parents, so the administration sent out a nasty-gram to all the parents reminding them of their responsibility to get their kids to school on time. How do I know she was 30 seconds late? Because that is exactly how long it took her to walk from the sidewalk to the school door after the bell rung.
Enjoy some brilliant analysis and incredible detail from one of my favorite writers and researchers, F. William Engdahl. The complete article is linked below.
On the tragedy of Beslan …
“On September 1, 2004, armed terrorists from Basayev and al-Khattab’s IIB took more than 1,100 people as hostages in a siege that included 777 children, and forced them into School Number One (SNO) in Beslan in North Ossetia, the autonomous republic in the North Caucasus of the Russian Federation near to the Georgia border.
On the third day of the hostage crisis, as explosions were heard inside the school, FSB and other elite Russian troops stormed the building. In the end, at least 334 hostages were killed, including 186 children, with a significant number of people injured and reported missing. It became clear afterward that the Russian forces had handled the intervention poorly.
The Washington propaganda machine, from Radio Free Europe to The New York Times and CNN, wasted no time demonizing Putin and Russia for their bad handling of the Beslan crisis rather than focus on the links of Basayev to Al Qaeda and Saudi intelligence. That would have brought the world’s attention to the intimate relations between the family of then US President George W. Bush and the Saudi billionaire bin Laden family.
On September 1, 2001, just ten days before the day of the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks, Saudi Intelligence head US-educated Prince Turki bin Faisal Al Saud, who had directed Saudi Intelligence since 1977, including through the entire Osama bin Laden Mujahideen operation in Afghanistan and into the Caucasus, abruptly and inexplicably resigned, just days after having accepted a new term as intelligence head from his King. He gave no explanation. He was quickly reposted to London, away from Washington.
The record of the bin Laden-Bush family intimate ties was buried, in fact entirely deleted on “national security” (sic!) grounds in the official US Commission Report on 911. The Saudi background of fourteen of the nineteen alleged 911 terrorists in New York and Washington was also deleted from the US Government’s final 911 Commission report, released only in July 2004 by the Bush Administration, almost three years after the events.
Basayev claimed credit for having sent the terrorists to Beslan. His demands had included the complete independence of Chechnya from Russia, something that would have given Washington and the Pentagon an enormous strategic dagger in the southern underbelly of the Russian Federation.
By late 2004, in the aftermath of the tragic Beslan drama, President Vladimir Putin reportedly ordered a secret search and destroy mission by Russian intelligence to hunt and kill key leaders of the Caucasus Mujahideen of Basayev. Al-Khattab had been killed in 2002. The Russian security forces soon discovered that most of the Chechen Afghan Arab terrorists had fled. They had gotten safe haven in Turkey, a NATO member; in Azerbaijan, by then almost a NATO Member; or in Germany, a NATO Member; or in Dubai–one of the closest US Allies in the Arab States, and Qatar-another very close US ally. In other words, the Chechen terrorists were given NATO safe haven.”
No surprises here for regular readers of ClearNFO, but now it has been fully documented by the U.S. Government itself; only because of the constant legal pressure of Judicial Watch. This BTW is only the tip of the iceberg. Read a summary on the Benghazi / ISIS connection here, and search ISIS and/or Benghazi on the ClearNFO search function for more background NFO.
“These documents are jaw-dropping. No wonder we had to file more FOIA lawsuits and wait over two years for them. If the American people had known the truth – that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other top administration officials knew that the Benghazi attack was an al-Qaeda terrorist attack from the get-go – and yet lied and covered this fact up – Mitt Romney might very well be president. And why would the Obama administration continue to support the Muslim Brotherhood even after it knew it was tied to the Benghazi terrorist attack and to al Qaeda? These documents also point to connection between the collapse in Libya and the ISIS war – and confirm that the U.S. knew remarkable details about the transfer of arms from Benghazi to Syrian jihadists,” stated Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch president. “These documents show that the Benghazi cover-up has continued for years and is only unraveling through our independent lawsuits. The Benghazi scandal just got a whole lot worse for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.”
Brilliant analysis by Rickards in the video below. Regrettably, I own his book, but have not read it. Great explanation of complexity theory and complex systems and the operations of the IMF; however, Rickards is also acting –possibly unwittingly– as a gatekeeper of the establishment’s mythology. Not sure he intends to be a gatekeeper or if he is just too focused on his own work to look at the documented evidence of past and present real conspiracies, but he definitely needs to reexamine some of his assumptions.
I also agree with his characterization of the government being too inept to construct a conspiracy on its own, but this is the proverbial ‘straw horse’ since no serious person would ever dispute this claim. The real conspiracies can be found in the elite’s own writings and by their actions. It’s not the inefficient and inept government organ itself, but rather those in positions of power and influence who manipulate the government.
He seems to be afraid of the CIA-weaponized term ‘Conspiracy’. Please See: CIA Document 1035-960; yet he apparently doesn’t know the definition of a conspiracy.
Interesting to note, that he says “this is not conspiracy stuff”, and then goes on to describe several conspiracies.
Legal Definition of Conspiracy:
An agreement between two or more persons to engage jointly in an unlawful or criminal act, or an act that is innocent in itself but becomes unlawful when done by the combination of actors.
The Elements of Conspiracy Agreement:
The essence of conspiracy is the agreement between two or more persons. A single person acting alone cannot be guilty of conspiracy.

Man holding a gun preparing to shoot a mother and her child
Most people have never heard of the ‘Breakaway Civilization’. The Breakaways intend to breakaway from the rest of us to create their own Utopian civilization. Why? Because they are smarter and richer and therefore better than those of us who occupy the unwashed masses of humanity; whose only function is to consume Mother Earth’s precious resources. In short, we are worthless breeders and eaters whose population must be culled.
As a child, I remember seeing the poor, emaciated starving children with swollen bellies from third world nations far, far from me. Most of these children had darker skin and a different culture, education and religious environment than my country of origin … so in some sense they were different and perhaps too ignorant to know how to help themselves … so perhaps they in some sense deserved this barbaric existence and painful death. I knew my poor attempt to rationalize their pain away was false but could not come to terms with this tragedy and the fact I was in no position to offer real help. I also knew that many of the so called ‘AID’ agencies operated out of lavish offices with large personal expense accounts and salaries… and they were always begging for dollars, so I reasoned that even if I could provide a small amount of money it would first be spent on the administrators’ lavish accoutrements.
Likewise, when I use to see the U.S. Military drop Agent Orange or carpet bomb Vietnamese villages, I thought that these folks were godless communists with but one desire… to subjugate America under a Communist dictatorship. Later, I realized that I was a fool and a buffoon and I was a product of American propaganda.
As my businesses prospered and I received a certain amount of financial success, I became somewhat indifferent to my fellows who were of less means than myself, to the point of not saying but believing that I was better and smarter in some way than the unwashed, ignorant masses of humanity.
What all these examples above have in common is the ability to dehumanize our fellow human beings using differences to supply the wedge for a complete emotional break.
My past financial successes were miniscule compared to the ruling elite who govern America and the world today. Their wealth is fueled by Central Banks and maintained by government enforced monopolies; their gains therefore are not deserved or earned by their efforts but by the efforts of the very people whom they despise and look down upon. Never the less, living in the world of ‘billions and trillions’ at your disposal would definitely put a very large ocean between those few elite and the rest of us. And I suppose that when they look down and see our pain and machinations to survive, they feel a lot the way I have felt in the past. Some are no doubt natural psychopaths who have never felt any remorse or empathy, and some have learned to dehumanize all us who are not of their class.
So the breakaway civilization is based on the ability to dehumanize our fellows who are not as we are; or rather as the erudite elite see themselves. As technology progresses, there is less and less need for unskilled and low-skilled labor –who have become the systemically and permanently unemployed– and so these folks are tossed into the human garbage heap and of no concern. Of the remainder, who are more skilled, their days are numbered too; because they are only valuable until they can also be replaced by automation, robots, technology, etc. In the meantime, the truly elite see that they have all these worthless breeders and eaters destroying, consuming and despoiling the natural resources of THEIR mother earth or ‘Mother Gaia’. Solution? Population reduction. Their grand religion of population reduction makes many otherwise barbaric acts palatable for some, fun for others and profitable for all in the elite. Not only does it move their agenda forward, it makes money and lots of it.
We are told that absolute power corrupts absolutely and we can see that principal operating everywhere we look in the pointless wars which serve only to satisfy the balance sheets of corporations and the grand geopolitical ambitions of people like Zbig (Zbigniew Brzezinski), Kissinger, Nuland, Kagan, Wolfowitz and team. The people be damned.
“The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of millions is a statistic.” –Joseph Stalin

“Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.” ― Henry Kissinger
On the pointless and failed American invasion of Iraq: Madeleine Albright says 500,000 dead Iraqi Children was “worth it” wins Medal of Freedom.
Folks like those above represent the best and brightest of the technocrat class who are owned and rewarded by the elite; the elite hold us in no higher esteem than these technocrats, I assure you; based not on my opinion, but on documented facts and on their actions.
So this (the ability to dehumanize your fellows) I submit, is the foundation or the basis for the breakaway civilization.
Not only is the breakaway civilization planning on major population reductions, in their own words, they feast on the most vulnerable and innocent of the people they despise so. Based on recent biological and technical breakthroughs, they also plan to create substantial life-extensions for themselves, but for no one else. They have a war on drugs, while they secretly traffic in drugs to our children, they have a war on terror, when they are the purveyors of global terror, they run secret, illegal and unethical experiments on our military and our civilian citizens with impunity, they help themselves to our children for their own sexual gratification without prosecution, and what do we do? We pay them our taxes and we submit to their illegitimate authority as though they were legitimate; not based on law, but based on privilege, position and illusion which is ill-gained by deception, lies and thievery. All this has been documented here at ClearNFO, and by others; and admitted to by the elites’ own writings; yet most choose not to look at the hard evidence, finding rather their comfort in the CIA weaponized term ‘Conspiracy’.
So, is there a limit to the elite’s debauchery? At what point does the debauchery lose its appeal? How many people must be slaughtered to satisfy their blood lust, how many cars and houses, yachts and sexual perversions satisfy? At the end of their ‘glorious journey’ to their breakaway Utopia, what will be left to them but howling at the moon, for there is nothing left to despoil.

There is something philosophers call ‘ontological knowledge’ that is also called innate knowledge. This knowledge lies beneath the critical thinking and reason realm (see ClearNFO: The structure supporting cherished beliefs…). We can offer up excuses and explanations and generate descriptions that seduce our vaulted egos into believing we have conquered a fact or two, providing thereby, some sort of understanding or wisdom; yet all this cognitive effort turns out insufficient and unsatisfying when dealing with the ontological realm. The ontological deals with the feelings of love for one’s spouse of many years and the comfort, trust and effortless commitment that interweaves its tapestry, bonding the relationship. This realm also includes the birth or adoption of your first child; and for me, my pure joy and amazement and the miracle of my first grandchild … this is what I wrote when my beautiful Kylee B was born…
Yesterday had to go down in my life as a perfect day…(October 7, 2010 at 6:48am)
My beautiful 19 year old daughter had her first baby and my first grand baby yesterday. For those into stats… she was born at 3:02 PM, 20.25 inches long and weighed in at a whopping 7.1 lbs. Both the mother and the child are doing very well. My daughter had a very quick and easy labor and the child was born healthy and beautiful. The hospital was perfect. The room was very large, comfortable and well equipped with all necessary amenities including chairs, a large sofa, TV, CD/VCR Player, Refrigerator, etc. The mother and child never had to move from the birthing room and the family was left alone to admire and get to know our new addition in privacy, peace, quiet and comfort. Interestingly the new baby was cleaned up and placed skin to skin on the mother’s bosom…what an incredible way to bond! In the other birthings I’ve attended, the child is whisked away from the mother into a cold room all by its self. Both families were in attendance for the entire event. It was very obvious to this observer that this special gift from God was born into two awesome families who will surround and protect and love and cherish our new addition.
So, what’s it all about? The ‘it’ here is life, and It’s about the family. It’s as simple as that. Why? Because you can only have so many Ferraris, summer homes, iPhones, iPads, etc. And for me, there is no success that can compensate for failure in the home.
Am I here to make your feel bad or jealous or to envy my perfect life or my perfect relationship? Not at all for my life is not perfect and my history is strewn with failures, heartbreaks and disappointments that would likely curl your toenails and straighten your hair. My intent rather is to communicate what I have learned based on my failures and successes.
Am I here to micromanage your life and tell you how to live or what is important to you? Not at all. I would never be so presumptuous as to believe that I have all the answers or that my truth is immutable; yet for me, I have found great joy and satisfaction within the family.
For me, Natalie Merchant expresses this well in her song below entitled ‘Beloved Wife’
