A Decade of Denial and Deception

(Originally published 9/11/11.)

 “It is said that men go mad in herds, and only come to their senses slowly, and one by one.” -Charles MacKay

9/11 is the biggest event in our life time, and yet here we sit a decade later, and the average American has not put any logical thought into what happened that day. For the most part, Americans were driven by emotional, almost animalistic, herd mentality into multiple wars, loss of liberties and explosive generational debt.  We were driven by the fear of  Mushroom Clouds and Weapons of Mass Destruction that were only found in our minds.  When I look back at how much our world has changed over the past decade since 9/11, it is astounding to me how much death and debt could have been avoided if we just came face to face with reality.

In this article I am going to take a very different approach of explaining what happened that beautiful Tuesday in September.  Not only will I present evidence to you, I will place the proper political, social, historical, economic and psychological context.  It is only from there can people really come to terms and truly understand what happened that day.  One other thing I am going to insist of you, is that you question everything I show you.  If you can do that simple thing, you will be well on your way to a much bigger and freer world.

Our Input/Output Disorder

I am not surprised at how many people have not come to terms with 9/11, they lack the tools to comprehend it.  Our educational system is centered on an input/output process of information.  Our success or failure depends on our efficiency of taking what the teacher tells us and then regurgitating it on  to some exam.  Those that are able to blindly regurgitate information the best are rewarded with higher grades.  They are told they are smart, when in fact they are just thoroughly indoctrinated.  This input/output process is no different than what a computer or a slave does.  You give it a command and it just does it, without question.  This system was carefully created to mold us into what we are today.

“In our dreams, people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands.  The present education conventions of intellectual and character education, fade from their minds and unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive folk.  We shall not try to make these people, or any of their children, into philosophers, or men of science. We have not to raise up from them authors, educators, poets or men of letters.  We shall not search for great artists, painters, musicians nor lawyers, doctors, preachers, politicians, statesmen — of whom we have an ample supply.  The task is simple. We will organize children and teach them in a perfect way the things their fathers and mothers are doing in an imperfect way.” – John D. Rockefeller  General Education Board (1906)

The masses blindly flow through the educational system and naturally fit into centralized systems that want good little obedient workers who take orders without question.  We all know of that person who is very smart/indoctrinated that excels in a corporation/military/government job and yet they lack any streets smarts to see what is really going on.  When you understand that their mind only functions on what they are told, it becomes clear to you how they are able to be successful in a centralized system where taking orders is a way of life.

Valedictorian Speaks Out Against Schooling

“I think therefore I am, is a classic philosophical statement on human consciousness and existence.  What about people who do not really think, do they really exist? -Chris Duane

This input/output mindset is reinforced outside of the school and career world.  Our society is all about what is popular.  From early on in your life you are pressured into doing what is popular, not what is best for you.  This is a way a collective gets individuals to sacrifice what is unique and special about themselves, to become the lowest common denominator in a group that really does not care about you at all.

“The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over” -Joseph Goebbels

When you look at our news or political debate, it is driven by talking points that are repeated with such accuracy, it is scary.  Intellectual debate in this society somehow passes for those who can scream their talking points the loudest over the other.  This is done purposefully to get a conformational, emotional reaction from the indoctrinated and to dissuade the logical, independent thinker from even entering the debate.  Through this process, the collective is intellectually safe from any challenge to its power.

“Do your thoughts serve to free you or simply to make you serve?” –Chris Duane

These talking points are created by people who do think about how to control societies.  They weave this input/output slave thought into a Hegelian Dialectic that they control.  They essentially have a society that bickers over issues that have no real importance on the real power of the world.  They use hot button, emotional issues like abortion or gays in the military to divide and conquer us, while they laugh all the way to the bank, march us off to war and destroy our Constitution.

What about those of us that did not do well in this indoctrination environment?  I was one of those kids that did not do very well in school. I knew from a very early age that what was being pumped into my head was not to make me a better person. I knew that the most successful people I knew of did not have jobs or went along with the crowd. Yet our schools teach us to get jobs and do what we are told.  I knew that our school system wanted me to learn about sex, drugs, death, multiculturalism much more than issues that would have driven my success like economics, history, and psychology.  They wanted me to drone on about senseless boring topics, instead of inspiring me to a higher and better self through art, music and philosophy.  What they were really teaching me was to keep my head down and deal with their system.  These days, those that are restless in this indoctrination environment run the risk of being drugged with Ritalin.

The Key To Freedom

“We are constantly told what to think and NOT how to think.” -Chris Duane


There is a very easy way out of this slave mentality we have been taught and it is called logic.  You might have heard about something called a classical education.  A classical education is created on the firm foundation of the Trivium of Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric.  Grammar is the observation of symbols or situations.  Logic is using reason to understand  what the most likely outcome is and how to best position yourself for that outcome.   Rhetoric is your ability to relate to others what you observed, how you logically thought about it and be able to defend your conclusions to others questioning your ideas.

“The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos.”– H.L. Mencken 1919

This Trivium was the basis for all other education.  If you are able to process information through the Trivium, you could learn anything and most importantly, you would love learning.  Did you ever wonder why our Founding Fathers were able to speak multiple languages and excel in vastly different areas like architecture and philosophy?  It is because they had a strong foundation in the Trivium.  Since these men loved learning, they did not ever stop learning.  They continued to read and study up into their final days.  This classical education led to a fertile ground of educational thought that gave rise to an American society that threw off the shackles of a collectivist tyranny for the simple principle of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Children are innately curious and they use their logic to understand how the world works.  The reason why kids are constantly into everything, is that they are learning how things work.  Over time they learn that if they drop a glass, it will break.  If you wonder why your kid is depressed, it is because they are being indoctrinated into being a slave and on some level they know it.  If you wonder why your kids don’t like you, it is probably because they don’t want to end up like you.  In our society we are taught to hate education and avoid it after we finish school. Our society makes it real easy to be ignorant and even subsidizes the behavior.

What luck for rulers that men do not (logically) think – Adolf Hitler

This three step process is vastly different from the input/output process of our current education system.  That key step of logical thought is totally devoid in our educational environment.  If we were taught logic we would cause all sorts of problems for a system that relies on blind obedience to orders.  When I was in the Marine Corps they were very bold in their indoctrination process of me. They wanted, “instant and willing obedience to orders.” Our schools, corporations and governments cannot be so bold, so they want you to be a, “team player.”

“Between stimulus and response, there is a space, and in that space, is our freedom” -Viktor Frankyl

While this logical thought is bad for a collectivist system, it is the key to happiness and success for the individual. Using logic allows the individual to rationally and unemotionally process what is being presented to them. There they can determine what is being presented to them, if it is good for them and how best to react to this new idea.  Logic breaks the slave mentality of, “do what you are told.”  When we have logic we are able to question what we are told and more  importantly reject those who are shown to be liars.  If we blindly accept everything we are told, we are led around by the nose by people who do think for themselves.  When we think for ourselves we can get ahead of the curve and and become independent of a world gone mad.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Joseph Goebbels

Using logic allows for you to respond on an intellectual level and not a animalistic, emotional level.  Every good marketer knows that the most powerful motivator is the use of irrational fear.  It is what drives impulse buys. Every sale derives off of irrational fear of missing out on a deal or that they are going to run out.  Logic would dictate that they are blowing out the old because the new product is probably better and at a cheaper price or they are never going to really run out because they are in the business of mass producing things.  Marketing is simply the manipulation of people for the profits and power of others.  Bill Hicks knew this…


Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death.” – Adolf Hitler

Every good propagandist knows nothing moves societies like irrational fear.  That is why after 9/11 we were bombarded with Fox News Alerts, Mushroom Clouds and spooky Muslim stories.  That is how we somehow accepted the lie that Saddam Hussein was involved in 9/11 and that invasion was necessary.  Or how we put up with 10 years of not finding any Weapons of Mass Destruction.  Or how we gave up our freedoms with the “Patriot” Act.  Or how we justified funding trillions of dollars in a unfounded, illegal and endless wars.


There Are Only Two Kinds Of People In This World…

There are only two different kinds of people in this world, those that want to be left alone and those that won’t leave you alone.  In my experience, most of humanity wants to love who they want to love, do what they want to do and be left alone. These people come from caring homes and are very empathetic.  They see the best in people, because they see the best in themselves. They cannot imagine people not being like them and thus gives everyone a chance.  While this is a wonderful way to be happy, it is extremely dangerous when mixed with a slave like input/output mentality.

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” -Edmund Burke

Then there is this other small group of people who cannot help themselves into constantly sticking their nose into your business.  These people are hurt people that seem to want to hurt others.  They somehow feel that if they can control the world (you) that they will be safe from being hurt again.  They blindly drive forward gaining social, political, or financial power in order to control others. These people see the worst in people, because they see the worst in themselves.  Let us look at some of the traits of these people and see if you can recognize the people in your life that are giving you problems.

  • Glibness/superficial charm.
  • Grandiose sense of self-worth.
  • Need for stimulation/proneness to boredom
  • Pathological lying
  • Conning/manipulative
  • Lack of remorse or guilt
  • Shallow affect
  • Callous/lack of empathy
  • Parasitic lifestyle
  • Poor behavioral controls
  • Promiscuous sexual behavior
  • Early behavior problems
  • Lack of realistic, long-term plans
  • Impulsivity
  • Irresponsibility
  • Failure to accept responsibility for own actions
  • Many short-term marital relationships

“I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.” -Matthew 10:16

The people that exhibit these traits are social predators and feed off of the good nature of people.  They look like normal people on the surface and wear the mask of sanity very well.  Underneath that charming exterior there is an emotionally empty and calculating person.  They mimic your behavior and interests only to gain your trust, to use it against you later.  The people that exhibit these traits are most likely conditioned that way because someone hurt them during their formative years.  They lack the ability to emotionally connect with others and seek to control others to prevent others from hurting them ever again.

The list above is actually a list of a characteristics of a psychopath.  We have been conditioned by our media to think of a psychopath as a knife wielding crazy, but most psychopaths are not homicidal murderers.  They are very common and are more like slow acting poison to those that are involved with them.  They can come in the form of a very benign narcissist consumed with themselves, all the way up to a criminal mastermind.

“The foundation of all mental illness is the avoidance of legitimate suffering.”Carl Jung

Low intelligence or low ambition psychopaths usually find themselves in a life of crime or bad relationships.  They exhibit anti-social disorder at a very early age and most likely come from an abusive home filled with other hurt people.  This generational mental abuse is a direct cause of systemic poverty.  This is why the war on poverty is such a failure, because we never address the mental pain these people are dealing with.  They will never become productive members of a collective, or their highest and best self as an individual, without addressing this pain.  They lack the skills or intelligence to deal with their pain so they continue to act out, leading to more pain.

Average intelligence or average ambition psychopaths gravitate towards any position of power, no matter how small. They could be your boss, a cop, a teacher or even a spouse.  These people work very hard to a position where people are forced to do what they say.  They love the collective system, because they are never challenged by logical thought.  They drive people in their control with emotional tools that they so efficiently wield.  They seem to determine everyone’s day based off of their mood.  They seem to be at the bottom of every office battle.  They think of nothing of putting in extra hours or stepping on people’s shoulders, because they are unemotional creatures.

“Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play. The tune does not matter, so long it is the only one the public is allowed to hear. Eventually, they will all dance.” -Joseph Goebbels

High intelligence or high ambition psychopaths are not content with small power and gravitate towards the three power centers of the country, New York, D.C. and L.A. If they are more financially motivated, they will be a natural fit for the shark infested waters of Wall St. where you get ahead by unemotionally using and abusing other people’s money. If they are more politically motivated, they go to D.C. where you can be apart of a collective that wants to regulate and tax every action of other people’s lives.  If they are more socially inclined, they can become a narcissistic starlet or manipulative social engineer to normalize psychopathic behavior.

The highest and most dangerous of all psychopath is the professional psychopath that manipulates nations into war.  It does not take much to convince Americans that Stalin, Hitler and Mao were psychopaths.  They see very clearly how they manipulated their societies into wars and genocide.  What is difficult for Americans to see is that they were manipulated by English speaking professional psychopaths in suits for war and power.  This intellectual blindness is called cognitive dissonance. Cognitive dissonance is the mental conflict that people experience when they are presented with evidence that their beliefs or assumptions are wrong.  No one likes to be told that they are wrong and often when confronted with this dissonance, use all sorts of ego defense mechanisms to assuage the pain.  They impulsively dismiss any information that does not agree with their preconceived notion and then immediately seek confirming sources no matter how flawed they may be.

“I care not what puppet is placed on the throne of England to rule the Empire, … The man that controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire. And I control the money supply.” – Nathan Meyer Rothschild

These men have conspired against humanity to consolidate power throughout the ages.  The few men that own the Federal Reserve and the other privately held central banks of the world have a monopoly on money.  They use it to control not only other banks but industries, media, politicians and ultimately you.  One only needs to look into the foundation of the Federal Reserve to see what these men plotted to do.  Without our current debt based money system, collectivism and World Wars would not be possible.  This is the root of power and we must hack at it.

My next project is called The Greatest Truth, Never Told.  The greatest truth never told is that throughout all of history all of humanity has been enslaved by a tiny few, over and over again.  I will explain how they do it, who does it and what we can to to finally rid ourselves from these shackles that have held humanity back for so long.  Look for it in few months.  In the mean time, if you like what you are reading you can support our independent work,  join our free  weekly newsletter and Academy, or schedule an interview.

“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the U.S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” – President Woodrow Wilson

Divide and Conquer

There is one more emotional and dark reason why we went to war and it is racism.  It is vital that in order for any nation to go to war they have to dehumanize the enemy.  The men that control nations must make you think that either you are somehow superior to the enemy or demonize the enemy as sub human.  If you saw the very human side of your enemy and how they were manipulated into war as much as you were, you could not kill your fellow man.  That is why we are fed scary stories over and over again about every enemy we have ever had.

This divide and conquer mentality separates us so that some men can gain unlimited power and profit.  We are split by race, religion, sex, politics, socio-economic levels, even by what we wear or what teams we root for.  We are driven to sub divide our selves by marketers or to fight wars based on our differences.   After the war is over and we win, we are told to become friends and trade with those that we once killed.  That is because in order for our Elite to gain power they must crush all competing countries.  In order for those men to profit, they must trade with and use those that were once our enemies.

Commerce with all nations, alliance with none, should be our motto”  -Thomas Jefferson

A more logical progression of thought is to follow the advice of our founding fathers and to embrace a non intervention foreign policy and trade with all.  How much blood and treasure would have been saved if we just did what we do naturally with our neighbors here at home and had normal trade?  Clearly there must be some logical reason why our country does not reflect what we normally would do and there must be a reason for this. 

“Competition is a sin.” – John D. Rockefeller


Think about all of the major wars we have fought for, every single one of our “subhuman” enemies that were were compelled to kill, are now our trading partners.  What changed?  Did they evolve?  The only thing that changed is that our Elite no longer needed us to kill them.  After we dominate a people and their resources, it is now time to create profits for the Elite.  Without war, the Elite would have to compete with others on a level playing field and as history has shown centralized power does not respond well to the more nimble and driven individual nations.  So every once in a while it is necessary to eliminate the competition and false flags are the best way to herd people into a war.

We have been fed so many stories about how the Muslims are these scary people that we must fear and fight.  Our media has saturated us with images of blood thirsty Arabs out to kill the infidels.  This is just a social conditioning that our Elite push on us so that when it comes time to go to war, you have people who are already predisposed to fighting this “subhuman” enemy.

The real reason why Muslims are made out as the enemy is that they are sitting on “our” oil.   I can guarantee you if the Aboriginal people of Australia were sitting on a ton of oil that they wanted, we would see Arnold Schwarzenegger in a huge summer blockbuster blowing up  those “evil” people.  The other reason why Muslims are made out to be evil is that they do not believe in Usury. Every major religion at one time prohibited all followers from engaging in charging interest.  Muslims are the only wise ones that still enforce it.  Between the oil and prohibition of interest, Muslims stand in direct opposition to the foundation of our society of spreading debt and death.

 “To the wicked, everything serves as pretext.” -Voltaire


False Flags Events of the Past

‘We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.” – Karl Rove

Now that we have our logical thought and we see that there are psychopaths that are driven to dominate the world, let us see how they actually do it. The most common tool for them is Problem –>Reaction–>Solution.  They usually create a problem and then wait for a natural reaction and then while everyone is trying to to come to terms with the new paradigm, they offer a predetermined solution.  This Hegelian Dialectic is used over and over again to get people to do what the Elite want.   They create new realities for us using fear and shock to drive us like cattle.  Only when you see that they have been using the same tired old play book and logically think about what is really going on can we take away their power. Let us now look at some of the Problem–>Reaction–>Solutions that led us to war.

“We were sent to provoke a fight, but it was essential that Mexico should commence it. It was very doubtful whether Congress would declare war; but if Mexico should attack our troops, the Executive could… prosecute the contest with vigor. Once initiated there were but few public men who would have the courage to oppose it.” -Ulysses S. Grant about the Mexican War

The Mexican War was the first war of conquest. It was the first war that used the media to manipulate Americans into war.  It was also the first war that we were lied into a war. Unfortunately it would not be the last. Every war since then has been framed as a righteous war and that we were spreading freedom. The truth is that behind every war there was a dubious cause creating the conditions necessary for war.

Civil War-  Northern industrialists were losing power to the Southern commodity producers who were then investing their wealth into their own manufacturing.  The Northern Politicians passed the Morrill Tariff 0f 1860 that increased the effective rate collected on dutiable imports by approximately 70%. T he biggest impact was on imported British manufactured goods which were then main competition to Northern Industrial goods.  The British responded by raising the tariffs on the only things that they imported from the U.S., raw commodities from the South. This destroyed the Southern Economy and gave a huge boost to the Northern economy to build their war machine.  Slavery is what was sold to the Northern citizens, but the reality is that the war was about dominating people and resources in the South.

The Spanish American War –  The USS Maine was literally the spark for another war that kicked out the last European power in the Western Hemisphere and the Philippines.  While there is no evidence that the USS Maine was destroyed by the Spanish in Havanna Harbor, it was spun by William Randolf “Rosebud” Hearst into war.  He sent correspondents Stephen Crane and artist Frederick Remington to Cuba.  When they arrived they found little to report on. “There is no war,” Remington wrote to his boss. “Request to be recalled.”  William Randolph Hearst, sent a cable in reply: “Please remain. You furnish the pictures, I’ll furnish the war.”  Hearst was true to his word.  For weeks after the Maine disaster, the Journal devoted more than eight pages a day to the story.  Not to be outdone, other papers followed Hearst’s lead. Hundreds of editorials demanded that the Maine and American honor be avenged.  Many Americans agreed. S oon a rallying cry could be heard everywhere — in the papers, on the streets, and in the halls of Congress:  “Remember the Maine! To hell with Spain.”

World War I-  The Lusitania was shipping arms to England in violation of America’s treaty to stay out of the war.   Germany warned America by taking out ads in major newspapers in the US that America was in violation of treaty and that they were going to sink the ship. May 1st the Lusitania set sail with 6 million rounds of ammunition and 1,200 cases of shrapnel shells.

First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill ordered the Juno destroyer, at the last minute, not to provide protection to the Luistania.  He also ordered the Lusitania to slow down to, “preserve the use of coal,” they became sitting ducks.  The Germans blew a hole in it and exploded the munitions they were transporting.  One of the largest ships ever built sank in 8 minutes.  The head of the official investigation in to the Lusitania quit his job sighting that, “the Lusitania case was damn dirty business.”

World War II-  We were told that the Japanese attack the US in Pearl Harbor without provocation.  What was not widely know is that the US embargoed steel and oil to Japan.  We were the largest oil producer at the time and it was a very strong blow to Japan.  What is also not widely known is that we had broken the Japanese code and knew the attack was coming. Even though thousands of men and material were lost, it has always struck me that not one of the Aircraft carriers were there that day or even close enough to provide cover.

The Vietnam War- This is the one that the Baby Boomers should be most upset about. 58,000 of our men killed, 350,000 injured, 2,000,000 Vietnamese dead, all over a lie. THE GULF OF TONKIN INCIDENT NEVER HAPPENED!

Gulf War I-  We helped create Saddam and gave him aid during the Iran Iraq war.  We gave him the weapons of mass destruction that we “never found.”  Rumsfeld met with Saddam to make sure we get his oil.  David Rockefeller tried to get him to play along with our game.  As tensions reached their peak between Saddam and Kuwait in 1990, U.S. Ambassador April Glaspie asked for a meeting with Saddam to inquire about the dispute with Kuwait.  Glaspie told Saddam that the U.S. would take no stance on Iraqi border disputes and promptly went on vacation.  1 week later Saddam invaded Kuwait with the apparent green light from Washington who had been courting the dictator for many years.  The Kuwaiti Royal family was able to escape well in advance of the invasion along with all of their assets.  They did not tell their fellow country men that were left to the onslaught of Saddam’s military.

Our Anglo American Elite encouraged, tricked, or turned a blind eye to Saddam invading Kuwait.   They did this after many attempts to get Saddam back in line with Western policy.  They wanted to cripple his army, but leave him in power to bring him back to the table and take the debt for oil deal Saddam passed on earlier.  George Bush cast Saddam the next Hitler and used this concocted crisis as a means to create an New World Order.  This was also done to thwart European and Russian involvement in the Middle East.
After Saddam was pushed out of Kuwait, President Bush encouraged an Iraqi uprising in the Shiite south and the Kurdish North.  America did not take out Saddam or give aid to the rebellious Iraqis.  They enforced a “no-fly zone” but did not include helicopters that were used in the mass slaughter of over 300,000 Iraqis.

The Almost War with Iran- Seymour Hersh exposed how Dick Cheney was trying desperately to create a “causus belli” an incident that would cause a war with Iran. “With the right incident the American public ” would support any war. They knew this way before then, as we can see from the list above.  They knew from Operation Northwoods and Hitler’s burning of the Reichstag that people can be moved into war if given the right irrational fear.

The BIG Reason Why You Should Look At 9/11

“Until they became conscious they will never rebel and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious.”   -George Orwell

I wish to invite you into a more rational, logical look at 9/11. Before we go down this road, I would ask you to think about why you should look into 9/11, after all it happened 10 years ago.  I would suggest that the mental exercise of questioning 9/11 could possibly save your life.  The ability for you to develop and use your logic thought to question 9/11 is your most valuable resource that you have.  It is far more valuable than gold or money in your bank.  The ability to see the world as it is, where it is going and to know how to best position yourself, is priceless.

“Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.” -Henry Ford

If you are able to challenge yourself and investigate 9/11, you will be better prepared for the single largest event in human history, the collapse of the dollar.  The collapse of the dollar is a mathematically inevitable event that is going to change the face of humanity for generations to come.  The dollar is the basis for our paradigm.  It is used all over the world in trade, but it is also the basis for all of the paper markets in the world.  When the dollar fails all other currencies will fail, since they are all based on the same debt based lie.  The collapse of the currency will lead to the cessation of all economic activity and trade, including food and fuel.  This will destroy the highly leveraged world of stocks, bonds, pensions, insurance and Real Estate.

The reason why I say the Dollar is mathematically going to collapse is because the Dollar is debt.  In our paradigm when debt is created, money is created.  When debt is paid off, money is destroyed.  Every dollar of debt that comes into existence has debt attached to it.  What is worse is that the debt is not even held by our government, it is held by private individuals.  The Federal Reserve is a privately owned bank that is no different than Bank of America.  It does have the unique monopoly to create our money since it was created in 1913.

If the United States government needs a billion dollars, it cannot simply print it up, it must borrow it into existence.  The Federal Reserve is more than happy to supply the money, provided that the US gives it a bond and a nice bit of interest for their effort.  The trick is that since all money is created in this fashion, the interest that is needed to be paid back, NEVER comes into existence.  If that billion dollars that the US government needed was the only money in the system, where would we get the extra 5% interest to pay back the loan AND interest?

The only way that this system functions is that every year more debt has to be created in excess of the debt AND interest accrued in the year before.  Among the many other reason as we will see below, the fundamental reason why the dollar is going to collapse is that the debt will become so large that we will default on the debt OR we continue to create more and more money/debt to the point where we see the power of compounding interest and we hyper inflate the currency into oblivion. Either way, this system is going to collapse and the ramifications of the inevitable event are massive.

You need to look into 9/11 to see what really happened and what the logical outcome of the ball that was set into motion that day.  9/11 marks the beginning of the end of the American Empire.  Without the ability to print the world’s reserve currency, America can no longer dominate the world and its resources.  We will have our lives forever changed so much so that people will mark that day as a change in an era, like B.C. and A.D.

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”  -Charles Darwin

While I am 100% convinced that 9/11 was a false flag event and the dollar collapse is going to happen, I would like to offer you a logical decision matrix to help you make your choice.  A decision matrix is a very simple box that allows you to weigh two possible choices and two possible outcomes.  In the case of both the dollar collapse and 9/11, you can choose to remain ignorant of the truth or you can research it.  If it turns out that 9/11 was not a false flag and that the government was telling the truth and you chose to look into it, you would have developed a valuable skill in using logic to investigate.  If you chose not to look into it and it was not a false flag then you would have remained the same.  But what about if it was a false flag and you did not look into 9/11 or the coming Dollar collapse?  I believe that those that remain willingly ignorant not only put their wealth unnecessarily at risk, they will be also risking their lives of not only themselves but that of their family.  The decision matrix clearly shows that the most logical thing to do is to look into it, because the consequences of not looking into it could be devastating.

The Decision Matrix You Question 9/11 You Choose to See No Evil
The 9/11 Official Story is True… You have learned an important skill of using logic to solve problems Ignorance is Bliss
9/11 is a False Flag Attack You are now aware and prepared to deal with reality and the mathematically inevitable collapse of the dollar. Historical Roadkill
I am not going to go into all of the absolutely incredible coincidences that happened on 9/11. I will show you some of the “ah ha” moments I had while researching 9/11. This by no means is the end all, be all of 9/11 research. There are hundreds of people who have done so much more work than I on this issue.  The key is to question everything.  I noticed that when I present what happened on 9/11 to friends and family, they would run to the quick and easy answer, rather than digging deeper.   “ Maybe it was…, ha.”  They would give a possibility to one of the questions and immediately be satisfied with their hypothesis. Or they would run to the official story like a safety blanket.
You have to fight cognitive dissonance.  Watching this process you can almost see the struggle that if they did discover that they were wrong, they would feel guilty or ashamed to have been fooled. The brain actively tries to defend the ego by offering outlets to allow the ego to defend the attack of reality that threatens their perception of reality. Also people don’t like to be told that they are wrong. This is a major reason why I chose this format to present all of my information. You can by yourself, hear all of this information and question what is true, without having your ego assaulted by some “know it all.”

The 5 Stages of the Awakening

“Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers.”– Voltaire

Now that you have decided to look into this further I want to prepare you for what you are going to go through emotionally.  I have identified 5 Stages of the Awakening process that mirror Elizabeth Kubler Ross’s Five Steps of Grief .  The reason why they mirror is because it is literally your old self dying.   Your body will physically and mentally react as if there was a real death in your life.  We identify ourselves by what we do, what we wear, and what we drive.   When you are awake, all of that will matter no more.   You will transcend the current consumer order and be fully prepared for the new paradigm.  I feel it is incredibly helpful to understand this process to not only identify where you are, but where you should be going.   I cannot stress to you how important and necessary this process is.  If you do not start thinking for yourself, you will be without the skills necessary to survive in a post-dollar world.

“No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.”– Voltaire

1. Denial- In this stage you dismiss anything that goes counter to conventional wisdom as crazy talk or conspiracy theory.  This is really a self defense mechanism the brain uses to protect the ego.  No one likes to admit when they are wrong, much less admit when they have been fooled.  So it is infinitely easier to deny a truth, rather than to embrace it.  It is easier to mock, than to debate.  It is easier to hide under the sheets and pretend that there is not a monster in the room.  This is where most of our society is stuck right now.  They believe that whatever the “authorities” tell them is the truth.  They go along with the crowd in fear of being looked upon as strange or crazy.

In my experience, denial comes in two forms.  The first is the most common and least dangerous form of denial.  It is just not wanting to know the truth that might upset their happy little life.  This innocent denial of the “ignorance is bliss” mentality, is held by so many Americans who think that things are going “swell” for them, so why ruin it with the truth.  There was a woman who I was working with that shut down on me when confronted with the truth.  She literally said to me, “I don’t want to know that 9/11 was an inside job, because that reality is too scary for me.”   This form of denial is the easiest to overcome, because when things go wrong in their perfect little world, they will have no more excuse not to look for the reason of why their world fell apart.  There is no more bliss for them to remain ignorant. This economic depression and political failures of both Bush and Obama have already shook a great many out of this denial.

“As long as people believe in absurdities, they will continue to commit atrocities.”– Voltaire

The second kind of denial is one that is much more pernicious. I view it as guilty denial.  This is the denial of people who actually are benefiting off of the illusion of our paradigm.  This comes from business owners, government employees or others whose livelihood is derived off of the current debt paradigm.  These people actively fight the truth through disinformation or saying, “they can’t keep that a secret” or that is “just a crazy conspiracy.”  They would rather create plausible deniability to distance themselves from the reality of their actions/inactions.  Their aggressive defense of the illusion shows me that they know what they are doing is wrong.  They are too afraid to live outside of this paradigm, so it is better to try to hold it together despite its human costs.

“Anger is just a cowardly extension of sadness.  It’s a lot easier to be angry at someone than it is to tell them you’re hurt.” -Thomas Gates

2. Anger- When you start to see that you were fooled, you react violently for being taken for a fool and want to lash out.  The Freedom Movement has a lot of this in it currently with talk of “just shooting the bastards.”  This action is ineffectual in bringing about positive change for the Freedom Movement.  (Those that have proposed this violence to me, I am sure were working for the government trying to find some sucker to frame.)  Anger is a very natural reaction and is one that you must go through rather than suppress.  Finding out how the world really works is a kin to finding out your significant other has been cheating on you.  You may have remained faithful to what this country was about while atrocities were committed behind your back.  Anger is just covering up for the fact that you are really hurt for being taken advantage of.  This stage is often the shortest, but is also the one where the most energy is expelled.  In my anger stage, I redirected my anger to fuel an intense amount of research into making sure I was never fooled again.  It eventually lead to the creation of the Sons of Liberty Academy.

3. Bargaining- After you calm down, you reach out to anyone who will listen to tell them what is really going on.  This is the most annoying stage of the awakening process. (Remember you are reaching for people who are in stage 1 of Denial.) You ruin Christmas parties telling people about WTC 7 or kids basketball games talking about the Federal Reserve.  By reaching out and sharing, you are not really trying to awaken people, you are really looking for help.  By reaching out, you are seeking guidance or structure in your search for truth.  You know that there is something wrong.  You know that you cannot go back to ignorance.  Without clarity, you cannot go forward.  This naturally leads to the next stage of depression.

4. Depression- Now that you have reached out to everyone and nothing seems to happen, depression sinks in.  You start saying “it is too big” or “what could I do about it.”  The worst kind of depression that permeates the Freedom Movement is the arrogant attitude of “I know it all” or “screw everyone, I don’t care.”  This is the most painful stage and the hardest to get out of.  Human happiness comes from progress and yet progress in this journey seems to suck you further into a hole.  Unfortunately there is no way around this, yet it is necessary to go though it.

“I must not fear. 

Fear is the mind-killer. 

Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. 

I will face my fear.

I will permit it to pass over me and through me. 

And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. 

Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” Frank Herbert

5. Acceptance- At the point where you now become comfortable with the oncoming reality and make active, positive steps to prepare for it.  This process of making wise choices for yourself and not others, will yield massive positive personal results.  These positive results will reinforce your actions and bring about more positive change in your life.  People will start to notice the light in your eyes as confidence returns.  They will now ask what happened to you and those that once did not want to hear the truth, will be ready to listen. This is ultimately where we need to get to both personally and as a movement.

“Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.” -Henry David Thoreau

I really feel that the reason I have been so successful at waking people up is that I do not try to scare and depress them.  (Trust me, I can write doom and gloom with the best of them.)  I do try to motivate, encourage and enlighten people in order to take that first step into their highest self.  This journey is the most important one they will ever take and is your only hope to ever becoming what you were meant to be free and independent.

“I think therefore I am free.” -Chris Duane

My Problem With Some Of The 9/11 Truth Movement

One thing that always always bothered me about some in the 9/11 Truth movement the use of emotional thought over logical thought.   We have seen before that the Elite drive us by the emotional slave thought and keep any logic out of our intellectual discourse.  Well, bullhorning people about 9/11 is an inside job works the same way.  It stops intellectual thought and repels those that might have been curious.  People’s natural defense mechanisms kick in when they are intellectually attacked.  Over coming cognitive dissonance and double think is difficult as it is, but encouraging it by verbally assaulting somebody is counter productive in my opinion.

I understand why the bullhorning was done those people were in stage 2 or 3 of the Awakening and emotionally reaching out to or expressing anger about 9/11.  I get that, but here we sit 10 years later and it is time to try again, but from a stage 5 of Acceptance.  Reaching Stage 1 people in denial with the emotional thought in stage 2, 3 and 4 is a fool’s errand and it will never work.  Only when you can logically and clearly think about an issue, can you even begin to hope to help those in denial.

Think of an alcoholic, all the best arguments  in the world will not get some one to sober up.  For the most part, drunks don’t sober up until they have hit rock bottom or the are brought face to face with the consequences of their actions.   Well we are working with those drunk on the American Hyperpower Paradigm.  For them most part Americans will not sober up until after the Dollar collapses, then they will need people in the Acceptance phase to guide them through the Awakening.

If you are truly trying to help the cause, instead of bullhorning answers, it is better to suggest questions.  Have you ever looked into what brought down WTC7?  Do you know how much money Larry Silverstein personally made off of 9/11?   Do you know who was in charge of security of both WTC and Dulles Airport?   Do you know how many cameras caught the attack on the Pentagon?  Getting people to ask questions will naturally lead them down the rabbit hole of truth.  That is far more effective than yelling at them that they are wrong.  No one likes to be told they are wrong, especially by a guy with a bull horn.

Loose Change is the movie that did it for me.  It was a logical look at a crime scene that asked questions and demanded answers.  Dylan Avery, Korey Rowe, Jason Bermas and Matthew Brown serve as inspiration for me today.  I wrote quite often about people resonating with each other.  I say resonate, because we have in our life gotten chills up our spine when something really hits you.  It may be a first kiss, a new idea or a song that you like.  I think we all send off our own vibrations and when someone or something vibrates at the same speed you are, you get chills.  It is at those moments you know something special is going on and you feel empowered.  I live to feel these resonant moments and I think that is what drove me to consume so much knowledge for the Sons of Liberty Academy.  Every new idea or connection I made gave me chills as things made sense.  It is through this resonating that others can serve as inspiration to others we have no idea who we will inspire or what that work will produce but it is something we all should search for in our lives.

My Problem With Those That Dismiss Us As “Truthers”

Given the sometimes abrasive nature of those in the Anger and Bargaining stage of the Truth movement, this has give the opposition the ability to dismiss all truth seeking, as just a bunch of “conspiracy nut jobs” or “Truthers.”   They rely upon convincing people to respond on an emotional level instead of intellectual debate.  For the most part those that are in denial simply cannot see the big picture, but those that do see the big picture are those that have a lot at stake in this current paradigm.  The government has spent millions of dollars into infiltrating, subverting and destroying the Truth Movement.

CoIntelPro is a government operation used to cripple dissent.  It was was widely used against peace activists during the Vietnam War and also the Civil Rights Movement.  Today it is much more sophisticated as seen in the 25 Rules of Disinformation.  You can look at any argument against the truth movement and see the tactics of disinformation that seek to limit debate and conversation. The most common that I have seen in the 9/11 debate are…

2. Become incredulous and indignant. Avoid discussing key issues and instead focus on side issues which can be used show the topic as being critical of some otherwise sacrosanct group or theme. This is also known as the “How dare you!” gambit.

4. Use a straw man. Find or create a seeming element of your opponent’s argument which you can easily knock down to make yourself look good and the opponent to look bad. Either make up an issue you may safely imply exists based on your interpretation of the opponent/opponent arguments/situation, or select the weakest aspect of the weakest charges. Amplify their significance and destroy them in a way which appears to debunk all the charges, real and fabricated alike, while actually avoiding discussion of the real issues.
7. Question motives. Twist or amplify any fact which could so taken to imply that the opponent operates out of a hidden personal agenda or other bias. This avoids discussing issues and forces the accuser on the defensive.
18. Emotionalize, Antagonize, and Goad Opponents. If you can’t do anything else, chide and taunt your opponents and draw them into emotional responses which will tend to make them look foolish and overly motivated, and generally render their material somewhat less coherent. Not only will you avoid discussing the issues in the first instance, but even if their emotional response addresses the issue, you can further avoid the issues by then focusing on how “sensitive they are to criticism”.
19. Ignore proof presented, demand impossible proofs. This is perhaps a variant of the “play dumb” rule. Regardless of what material may be presented by an opponent in public forums, claim the material irrelevant and demand proof that is impossible for the opponent to come by (it may exist, but not be at his disposal, or it may be something which is known to be safely destroyed or withheld, such as a murder weapon). In order to completely avoid discussing issues may require you to categorically deny and be critical of media or books as valid sources, deny that witnesses are acceptable, or even deny that statements made by government or other authorities have any meaning or relevance.

Questioning 9/11 is the only crime that I can think of where those that are searching for the truth, are demonized.  We have T.V. shows and movies about cold case files that have never been solved.  Heroic people searching for the truth so that they can bring justice to the victims are cheered in our fiction, but not in our reality.  Here we have a crime that not only killed 3,000+ Americans, but millions of others have been killed because of the actions that were set into motion that day, and those that simply ask questions are attacked.

I recently had an email exchange with someone who said, “If I ever see you I’m going to bitch slap you for the victims of 9/11…consequences be damned.”   I gave him some of the information in this article and he just kept cursing, “shut the fuck up you pig…”  “You are an ignorant ass….take me off your mailing list, you unamerican piece of shit.”  I finally told him, “And you call me ignorant… You won’t even look into it to see if you just might have been living a lie.  I fear no question and you should question everything.

I have encountered people like this over and  over again.  I feel sorry for these people.  They are victims of a society that has limited their potential.  They only function on the input/output mentality.  This has made them emotionally manipulated people dependent on a system that traps and enslave them.  I have no problem with someone logically questioning the evidence I presented.  Even if 90% of the stuff I showed above has some sort of logical explanation that would support the official story, there should still be support for those who question the story. After all if you believe in the 1st Amendment you must support everyone’s right to free expression, if not you are a collectivist.

Those that want to limited debate are those that want to control you I have show how those people tend to have psychopathic behavior and want some sort of collectivist power to limit the individual rights to speak freely.   A society can overcome any challenge, if there is a healthy debate.  Those that want to limit debate through name calling or worse, are a much bigger problem than those that commit the crimes.  Criminals can be exposed through debate, but are enabled and empowered through the darkness of censorship and secrecy.

The sad part about these people is that they are literally risking their lives with their active ignorance. Without the ability to think logically and be able take massive action these people will be caught flat footed when their paradigm collapses.  Think about the people that were trapped in the Hurricane Katrina disaster.  Those that were most dependent upon the system were the ones that could not think logically for themselves.  They were only rescued by people who could logically think.  With the dollar collapse there will be no cavalry.   There will be no help.  No one is going to bail us out, because  the whole world will be a mess.  This will lead to a massive death and chaos in areas that are most dependent on the dollar paradigm.


Setting the Stage

In order to properly look at what happened on 9/11 we must realize a couple of very important realities facing our society.  I have written over and over again that our entire way of life is based on the constant expansion of debt.  In our monetary paradigm our money is debt.  When debt is created money is created.  When debt is paid off money is destroyed.  Here is an undeniable fact that should scare you if you understand this properly, if all of the debt in the world was paid off there would not be a single dollar in existence AND we would still be in debt, because the interest that is due, never comes into existence.

In our rigged game of monopoly, if the US government needs $1 Billion Dollars to pay for 1 day of war, it must borrow this money into existence. Most of the time it borrows it from the privately and foreign owned Federal Reserve. (That’s right the most powerful nation in the world cannot print it’s own money. It must borrow it from a few, very rich families that in 1913 schemed to create a monopoly out of the basis for every society, money.) Every single dollar that comes into existence is a dollar of debt that also has a few cents of interest tacked on to it. The slight of hand that most people do not get is that the interest on the debt never comes into existence. In fact the only way our debt and interest does get paid we must go back over and over again like a junkie to our debt dealer and borrow more money/debt. Our monetary system is rigged from the very first dollar to force us to take on more debt every year in excess of the debt AND interest accrued the year before.

“In the long run we are all dead.” -John Maynard Keynes

At some point the accrued debt becomes so odious on the economy that we cannot pay the debt anymore and we default on the debt. That would take down the entire leveraged economy as the world faces the mother of all margin calls and money totally disappears from the face of the earth.  This is not an option our Elite ever chooses so they choose to inflate the money supply to kick the can down the road.  This leads to a mathematically inevitable end of debt through a hyper inflation.  If you understand anything about compounding interest, at some point the interest compounds so large and fast that we can’t even afford to pay the minimum monthly interest payment.  The Elite can make this easier by artificially driving down interest rates by printing up money and buying debt. (QE 1, 2, 3…) With every dollar printed it destroys the value of all of the other dollars already in existence.  This inflation of the money supply eventually works through the economy and people see prices rise. (Please note that it is not the prices that are going up, it is the value of the dollar going down. You need more of these worth less dollars to buy the exact same about of goods. If you measured these items in terms of gold or silver you would see that prices are pretty constant if you use honest money.)

“The whole government is a Ponzi scheme” -Bernie Madoff

The mathematical end happens when the Elite keep printing money/debt to keep their game going.  The amount of money printed drives up inflation, which naturally leads to people losing faith in the currency.  Our entire way of life is essentially built upon one big CONfidence game.  Like all good Ponzi Schemes, the dollar only works as long as people have confidence that they are going to get their money back. When the CONfidence is broken, the game is over.  This leads to people dumping their currency while it can still buy something and this speeds up the money velocity that speeds through the economy until the money becomes worthless.

The Fed does not really care about inflation, all they do is create inflation. What they do desperately care about is your inflation expectations.  There are many tools the Elite use to control the masses, like lying about real inflation or unemployment.  If people think inflation is running high, they will dump the dollar on to any real asset that will hold its value.  This then fuels inflation and leads to hyper inflation as total CONfidence is lost.  This hyper inflation process not only destroys currencies but the economy and ALL paper assets.  Quadrillions in paper wealth will seek the safety of real, tangible assets like commodities.  Food and fuel will be the best performing assets as they are the most basic of human needs.  People will sacrifice just about anything to keep their belly full and to keep warm.  Investing in these two asset classes has its challenges, as food tends to rot and fuel degrades and you need tanks to store it. (If you want to know the single best invest I have found and I am fully invested, in click here for 11 of my best reports on it.)

The Fading Baby Boomer

This constant expansion of money was enable by the largest and most affluent generation the world has ever known.  The Baby Boomers were a demographic shot in the arm that has been the fuel for the American economy for the past three decades.  The Boomers were not only the largest generation, they were the most enamored with debt.  With credit cards, mortgages, car loans and their kids student loans this generation seemed to dance in debt.  For many years it was the key to massive wealth as it helped created many businesses, jobs and wealth.  I personally watched many baby boomer millionaires fearlessly tack on debt after debt as they sought to leverage themselves into an empire.  The sad thing is that they remained woefully ignorant to the basic economic reality of our monetary system that is is doomed to fail.

The demographically inevitability of the Baby Boomers is a major drag on this constant expansion of debt.  When the boomers were in their prime they bought the McMansions, the vacation home, the 3rd car, vacations, dinners, and gadgets.  Now that they are getting older and have been taken down with the stock and Real Estate bubbles, they will no longer be able to play that game any more.  What is worse, the Ponzi scheme they once fueled, they will be starting to take from it.

Well if the Boomers are not going to create debt, who is?  I can tell you that my generation is broke.  We have $1 Trillion dollars of useless  student loans on our backs.  Useless degrees that cannot find us a job in this paradigm, much less the next.  This leaves the spender of last resort, the government to borrow more and more from the lender of last resort, the Fed.  The sick symbiotic relationship must be stopped. Banksters gain wealth from lending debt/money and politicians gain power from spending money/debt.  This ensures that they will create and spend as much money as they can, until the system dies.

We are at a point where we either default on the debt, willingly or unwillingly, or create more money/debt to keep the cycle moving.  The problem is if you understand anything about compounding interest, we are reaching the hockey stick moment where the more debt that is incurred, the less effective it is and this leads us to hyper inflation.  There are only two actors needed for this hyper inflation, the Lender of Last Resort, the Fed, and the Spender of Last Resort, the government. These two can, and will, blow up the system.  I believe they will wait until the next crisis and the whiff of deflationary depression before they fire up the printing presses.  That crisis is coming very soon.  The money and emergency measures are worn out.  The fact that NONE of the underlying problems that caused the 2008 crisis have been resolved.  The only thing that has happened is that instead of corporate problems, we now have nation problems.  In this movie Greece will play the role of Lehman Brothers and the United States will play the role of AIG.  The problem is there is nowhere to kick the can down the road and there is no world government to absorb the debt, yet… (Problem, Reaction, Solution.)

    Chris, you slammed this one dead on! Excellent job.

    A 500-2000 word summary covering all major points would be really nice, I would love to spread this message but few have the time to read all of it.

    • trailhiker

      Your point is just what Chis is speaking of in education, people are unwilling to make any attempt at helping themsleves. “Oh it is tooo long to read, I have to watch my TV program on how the movie stars pregnancy is going” blah blah blah!
      If the people in your cirlce cannot take 15 min to read something you should find a new circle.

      so do the summary James! what, you want Chris to wipe your ass for you and feed you pablum, like your mommy did?! Chris has, like always, done a spendid job! keep up the great work Chris.

  • Mike Hart

    Thank you for your good work here on this site. You may have made a mistake with your quote of Goebbels regarding the ‘Big Lie’. More lies and disinformation have been spread about the Big Lie than just about anything else. See this link here: http://www.bytwerk.com/gpa/falsenaziquotations.htm
    Keep up the good work.

    Chris I’m grateful you have committed such an exhaustive amount of time and energy in exposing what is happening in our world. I find nothing in your research that does not ring true! I’ve known or felt for years that the US is entering into a dark epoch that will be hard to survive as too many have allowed themselves to be deluded by the propaganda that begins at our birth.

    I can only hope that those of us who “question everything,” will unite and try and get more people to wake up before it’s too late. The clock is not on our side!

  • If we could just get a majority to realize your point about all of our money being based on debt, I think we would be much closer to real change. That single point alone shows me that our current system is a scam.

    • Silver Shield

      Most people come to the truth/liberty movement by the money issue but as the Sons of Liberty Academy shows it is MUCH deeper than that…

  • mahatma

    Thank you for your exceptional article.

    From the movie The Matrix (http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/The_Matrix):

    Morpheus: The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window, or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.

    Neo: What truth?

    Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage, born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind. Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.

    The sad truth about the degree of ignorance that is so very pervasive in today’s society, esp. here in N. America, can best be summed up by a quote by Ayn Rand: “You can ignore reality, but you can’t ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.”

    Those consequences are coming home to roost.

    “During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act. ”
    George Orwell

    Or put in a language for the sheeple: What do you need to know to teach an old dog new tricks? Of course the answer is, more than the dog. Woof!

  • Chris, This is a very excellent piece bringing out some often overlooked basic premises of the manipulation, exploitation, oppression and conflict we find ourselves in. You are right on target! Why not submit this piece on many websites? I will forward it to others. Thanks for being a thoughtful freedom fighter! David McElroy

    Thank you for putting into words the very thoughts that have been circulating around in my head for the past few years. Today is the first day I have read any of your work, and I believe stumbling onto your blog was no accident.I am looking forward to the Greatest Truth ever told.

  • William

    You end this excellent aticle with = “The problem is there is nowhere to kick the can down the road and there is no world government to absorb the debt, YET…”

    The real elite know you are right, they are not stupid and they always have a plan. A world government/bank is what they want ( This can take the debt and extent it further).You say its not here yet but a little research will quickly show that it has already been well prepared for.
    To get it they must crash the system and when they consider enough suffering has taken place all around the world they will roll out their well prepared solution.

    They will make sure that the public of the world will be so desperate that the new privately owned new world reserve currency and bank will be accepted. The end result for them is total world domination and 99.9% of the world living in complete slavery to them.

    Please keep up this work , we must all try to “Wake Some People Up”!

      I believe that the Elite we have are going to over play their hand and this will lead to massive decentralization of power.

    When I see what is, I ask myself, “So what am I doing here?”
    This always opens a window. The matrix is all around us…and guess what! We are here.
    Who are we? What then are we capable of beyond how we have historically reacted? This irritation will eventually produce a pearl. It must, if we are going into a positive spin for a different future experience. We are not doomed. We are still reacting, having lost our power to create. When will we take the reins of creation away from the ones driving the illusion we are reacting to and create our own illusions that have more desirable endings? How do we do this?

    Do your thoughts serve to free you or simply to make you serve?” –Chris Duane
    …………whose agenda?

    At the END of The Matrix Neo merges with the enemy! How does he do this?

    In this world there are 2 types of people……., those who want to dictate and control others, thereby having power over and those that want to merge with others to gain experience and have power with. Which are you? Do you want to have power over those who seek to control you? Do you scheme to have ultimate control over in a future reality? Do you seek revenge? Are you a controller yourself? Are you coming from fear? All control comes from fear. Does fire put out fire? Do you throw water on a flood? How do we regain the power that we willingly gave away to experience what is now happening? Did we get what they offered us in return for giving away our power? Do we still want it? What is this power we gave? …………………..What decision did we make that we now want to correct that will give us back our reins, our clarity, our imaginations? Whose movie are we in? Who created it? didn’t we by default?

    We are still stuck in the middle of The Matrix, seeing them as powerful and us victims of their abuse. Trying to win. When will we wake up to what we have forgotten about ourselves? IT cannot be educated out of us. Watch the End so we can get on with it!! Logic tells us what is going on but Who We Are borders on the irrational. No one can tell us who we are.

    Chris, I didn’t realize you were a ‘Truther’. Sad.

    • Silver Shield

      Some sleep well at night knowing that they asked themselves hard questions to find the truth.

      Others sleep well at night making up their own answers.

  • VIPER131

    1. WILLIAM — I believe that you are correct. They have ‘their plan’ and are just waiting to implement it. The whiff of things to come as I see it and you suggest are already there.

    The new currency will be in the form of a ‘National ID Card’. The ‘theys, elites, or government nazi types’ have been prototyping this already. The entire DOD has been using these cards with chips for about 10 years.

    The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) – which consists of United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwaitt, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar all have the Central Personnel Registry card — otherwise known as the CPR card. Just picked mine up yesterday — photo and fingerprints in the chip. Eventually, retina scans and DNA will be included as well.

    This card is also embedded with chip technology. And EVERY person has to have this. You cannot enter contracts without a CPR card, no bank accounts, no cell phones.

    It will be very easy for them to roll this out as part of the new plan.

    Want gas- put in your card.
    Want food — put in your card.
    Want electricity — put in your card
    Want a cell phone — put in your card.
    Want to leave the country — put in your card
    Want to go back to your country — put in your card

    If you are a farmer — you cannot sell your food without BATF and SWAT teams rolling in. Grow your own food and you will be harassed. Nothing will be off the grid. Without being too religious — biblical times are approaching.

    2. Jason — Not sure what a ‘Truther’ is — by your tone, it doesn’t sound positive.

    An examination of the facts – should be given to anyone that requests it.
    An honest reporting should be allowed all opportunities to be given.

    There are too many ‘coincidences’ that don’t add up — with the entire Clinton, Bush, and now Obama administration. A full accounting should be demanded and given.

    And not by people with a vested interest in ‘The System.’

    And people should be held accountable for failures, conspiracy, attempts, crimes, and accessory before and after.

    I have personally had questions – when:
    1. In 1999 I read in US News and World Report Washington Whispers section ‘that the CIA was videotaping an Al Quada conference in Jakarta, Indonesia. That in attendance were citizens that resided in the US. And that the CIA had ‘lost’ track of these individuals.’

    2. As an F16 pilot that has sat on alert — wondered why my Air National Guard brothers weren’t called to scramble in Atlantic City, NJ and the 119FW F16s weren’t scrambled from Langley, VA at the first whiff of hijackings. That is there sole bread and butter. We have trained for that scenario since I started — in the mid-1980’s.

    3. Watch WTC7 — can you say controlled demolition? How does one ‘pull’ a building in a matter of hours? Not possible. My brother was a fireman for 30 years. He fought fires for 30 years while I flew fighter jets for 30 years (still flying now).

    There are a whole host of issues that need to be vetted — but never will. Until that day happens — I will insist on my right to examine the facts completely as an unbiased person that only wants the best for my children, my community, and the United States citizenry.

    Watch videos on the makeup of the 911 commission — can you say ‘vested interest’. The members didn’t include Main Street types like you and myself.
    Look at how nobody was held accountable — can you say ‘vested interest’.
    Look at how the media didn’t ask any tough questions — can you say ‘vested interest’.

    Having ejected from an airplane and was taken to the scene shortly after my parachute landing — I know what wreckage was availabe. There was a 40 foot crater, complete with parts in the crater, the wings blew up and were strewn about 500 feet. There was a couple of firetrucks putting the flames out.

    Most aircraft accidents with impacts send parts flying for approximately 1 mile. Even small fighter jets will do the same.

    At any rate — enough epiphanies for the day.

    Just know this:
    1. 911 was approximately a $40T hit on the economy.
    2. The Financial Crisis is another $40T hit on the economy
    3. The Mortgage Crisis will be another $50T hit on the economy
    4. WMD that didn’t exist — is another $10-15T hit on the economy
    6. Federal Reserve — is counterfitting our life savings via inflation. $20T?
    7. Obamacare — is another $10T drag on our economy and we are bankrupt already.

    Nobody has been arrested, indicted, chastised. Even Bernie Madoff wasn’t tried — so the public would have known all of his crimes, accomplices, and co-conspirators.

    I suspect an interview with Christine Todd Whitman could be enlightening. I also believe a truthful interview with Colin Powell could be enlightening. Also the Secret Service agents under Clinton, Bush, and Obama could dispense some very interesting information.

    So while Rome (the entire United States) is burning — you stand and call Silver Shield a ‘Truther’?

    These are treacherous times — indeed. The pendulum can go either way depending on how things play out in the future. As it stands right now — I am hoping for the freedom and liberty crowd, but unfortunately believe that the Matrix might win out.

    Only time will tell!!! Time stops for no man.

    Hope everyone reflected on this past decade — and remembered those souls that did lose their lives on September 11th, 2001.



    • Silver Shield

      The problem is not the damming evidence, there is plenty of that…

      The problem is that the jury won’t even look at the evidence or that they give power to the guilty by their blindness.


    Are these Global ‘elites’ losing control due to their hubris and cowardly actions?
    Setting themselves up for their own defeat?
    OR are gaining more strength and momentum?

    Observing the last decade, appears it is
    both…because the more they gain over the sheep through FORCE/LIES, the more OBVIOUS becomes their INTENT.
    The HARDER ‘they’ push – the MORE sheep Awaken.

    Each day we are GAINING MORE while they are losing more(people)… EVENTUALLY, when a threshold is reached, those that were quietly waiting, sitting idle, in the wings of power will
    (hopefully) suddenly in unison turn upon these psychopaths.

    That said:
    The ONLY POWER these crooks HAVE over the vast majority is…
    the IGNORANCE and GULLIBILITY of the vast majority THEMSELVES.

    MOST people are living in a day-to-day sheeple land and many may not give a damn about anybody but themselves, however, like Samuel Adams once said:

    “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom … go home from us in peace.
    We ask not your counsels nor arms.
    May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
    “In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.”
    — Mark Twain
    (but I know I’m just preaching to the choir)

    Check it out, the ‘elites’ DO have names and addresses, they are almost humans=PSYCHOPATHS!
    (scroogle is your friend)

    • Silver Shield

      The more they lose control the more that they will tighten their grip.

      The more star systems will slip through their fingers…

      I knew I loved Princess Leia from an early age. :)

  • @ Jason

    I am a very successful self-taught businesswoman who started with nothing. I have a degree in chemistry from a US school as well as a background of working as an electrician’s apprentice. I have been trained in weapons, martial arts, and other military arts.

    I am as reputable as they come based on my education, experience, and training. Being largely self-taught and self educated as well as well versed in logic as well as emotional intelligence, I can coherently seek the truth by knowing how to think for myself. So, by definition, I am a “truther”. Are you trying to tell me that, as a master of my domain, that I am a kook because my education and experience tells me that the “official story” is meant for mindless drones and slaves who have no ability whatsoever to formulate their own thoughts or opinions without the approval of their peers?

    I am genuinely curious as to what makes someone like you an authority on what is truth and what is fiction, as well as why you appear to scoff at people who can think for themselves. All I know is that I need no man to tell me what to do, how to survive, or what to think.

    So my bottom line is who exactly are you and why should anyone listen to you?

    • Silver Shield

      I know of Jason and I have spoken with him he is misguided and will come around.

      I would encourage all who see the light not to be so hard on those that don’t and remember you were all like him at one point.

      “Judge a man by his questions, not his answers.” Voltaire

  • Pat Fields

    Default in the credit markets, first, destroys the good and evil lenders alike, amd rewards the diligent and lethargic alike. Secondly, it necessitates a tremendously chaotic and disruptive re-organization of the entire financial super-structure. Thirdly, it allows for continuation of the existing system by mere temporary alleviation of interest funds creation.

    An alternative exists that circumvents all this and yet completely ‘re-sets’ the ‘game’ to its original parameters. This is to re-form the banknote float in its residual real purchase value as originally expressed. In the case of American banknotes, this equates to a 10 gram copper piece given 97% depreciation to a purchase value expression of three 1912 copper cents.

    By choosing this alternative, all wage, price and account quantities remain unchanged. Simultaneously, the monetary system reverts back to the sounder principals of specie mediation and neither lenders nor borrowers are unjustly harmed.

  • Tell The Truth

    Excellent work. All well argued points. You nailed it Chris.

    Jason: you’re sad. To dismiss the points being made as “truther” misses the point entirely and reveals your own clear inability to think independently and critically. I feel sorry for you, Jason; you epitomize the slave mentality so aptly defined by Chris.

    Question everything. Read books. Learn history. Think for yourself.

    • Silver Shield

      Go easy on Jason he is misguided like I was when I was in the Marines.

      He will come around and end up being one of our biggest supporters.

  • lastmanstanding

    VIPER131…thank you for your service and your sharing of info. Hopefully, it is the sharing of info that will save our country as the founders intended.

    We all need to be keeping an eye on the real things.
    How people are acting. (Worldwide) history always repeats itself.
    The earth. We need to be paying attention to the earths trends, using it signs as how it may be in the future. Global warming is bullshit. The planet is far mightier than 6 billion people. She will get rid of us in a blink of an eye.

    We must begin to take care of ourselves and our families. God bless you and yours…and those of you who want to survive.

    • Silver Shield

      Man builds the unsustainable.

      Nature knocks it down.

      Why doesn’t man build a sustainable life?

      Because the Elite don’t want that.

      Why don’t we build a world without the Elite this time when their world falters again?

  • striving4simple

    Excellent information.
    Worldwide – people that believe the ‘official’ version of 9/11 are in the minority.

    The truth IS getting out there.

    The “Truther” label is just another way to emotionalize any logical analysis of the evidence around 9/11

  • To me the “truth” is that which agrees with me…….the same as with you and everyone else………I think therefore I am.

  • Chris


    Read the part of the article about the five stages of awakening. Based on your comment, which stage do you currently reside? It appears you have a long way to go… Wake up!

  • CJ

    Hey Chris,

    Guys like you and Sean of SGT are who I call heroes of truth, I applaud you guys for pointing out all the facts. There’s hope in America because of people like you guys, this is the real spirit of liberty in America. I became a muslim in America while going to University 22 years ago because I was inspired by this same spirit to question. And you are right about pointing out the Islamic Financial system that is against usury. In fact in the Quran, the sin of usury is a great sin. (http://www.al-islam.org/greater_sins_complete/14.htm). I’ll leave you guys with a prophecy by Prophet Muhammad, told more than 1400 years ago: ”Abu Bakr ibn Abi Maryam (a companion of the prophet) reported that he heard the Messenger of God says: “A time is certainly coming over mankind in which there will be nothing (left) that will be of use (or benefit) save a Dinar (i.e., a gold coin) and a Dirham (i.e., a silver coin).”

    Keep up the good work, God bless you all!

    – Peace, wisdom and success to all

    • Silver Shield

      I can tell you it is not easy going against the grain the way we do but I would not have it any other way.

      Every man dies, but a coward dies a thousand deaths….

      Think about that every morning and what you do every day.

    Qoute from article = “I care not what puppet is placed on the throne of England to rule the Empire, … The man that controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire. And I control the money supply.” – Nathan Meyer Rothschild.
    I think this quote now applies to most of the world including America, not just Britian. It could also have been said by some of the other banking elite.

    Most of our problems stem from the fact that it is private bankers (who the public have no control over)that create our money out of nothing as an interest bearing debt.

    This is a link to a 2hour film by Bill Still that really explains what our money system is and possible solutions. Its very well made and worth making the time to watch. In fact I would say that his film “The Secret of Oz” is essential viewing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swkq2E8mswI

    This is a link to an 8 minute speech by Bill Still. Really informative.

    What is the opposite of a “truther”? …It is a LIAR of course.

    i find it humorous that the liars would label their opposition so blatantly. Since when did searching for the truth become despised, or so wrong?

    An often missed but highly important reason for the false flag that was 911, is that Wall street was about to collapse completel at that time and the false flag triggered the much needed stimulus to the economy…a new financial bubble to replace the burst internet bubble…the new “war on terror” business model.

    “Cognitive dissonance is the mental conflict that people experience when they are presented with evidence that their beliefs or assumptions are wrong.”

    For me, and I would assume most people, this was the hardest thing to cope with. Once you REALLY look inside yourself, you see all the things your mind does to prevent you from leaving the safety and security of the world made for us. Anger, yes. Depression, most definitely! Acceptance comes when you find others and you start growing and learning from each other, because you know one day those of who have prepared will rebuild this land for the better.

    Thank you for this article. It provides sanity in this insane world.

    • Silver Shield

      The problem does not lie with the Zionists, Neo Cons, Banksters, Bilderbergers, Homeland Security, Obama or any other force out there…

    Hey I tried to come to your site and a WARNING came across that your site was an ATTACK WEBSITE from Google.



  • Bet My Silver Dollar

    Sorry, but I must disagree with everyone who posted here who are in agreement with the Silver Pied Piper. It seems all of you are on the same page with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Here’s his quote from a NY paper: “Some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attacks to reverse the declining economy and its grips on the Middle East in order to save the Zionist regime,” Ahmadinejad said. Welcome to his sick world and the zionist haters club. I have picked up on anti-semitic comments made on previous blogs so none of this rhetoric surprises me. Why don’t all of you just let go of this. It’s insulting to all who lost their lives in this heinous attack. You also have no hard evidence, just quotes and links to articles written by other conspiracy theorists. I will probably be “drawn and quartered” for my comments on this blog so be it.

  • Bet My Silver Dollar

    We convict ourselves by your own words and deeds. This tells me all I need to know about whose side your’re on: Nazism vs Zionism. Those pictures you posted were very graphic. More Jews have been murdered by Palestinians than the other way around. Maybe you ought to pick up the Bible and see what God has to say about Israel. The land belongs to the Jews not the interlopers called Palestinians who are of Egyptian and Jordanian descent. Before the Jews re-settled in their rightful homeland Palestine was a desolate landscape with nothing but rocks and sheep herders. When the Jews toiled away to make this land liveable suddenly the sons and daughters of Ishmel decided to make it their home. They are vile and have hated the Jews ever since Isaac and Ishmel. Scripture says they will be like a wild donkey. Their hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand will be against them. There will be no peace until these monsters are brought to justice by God’s hand.

    • Silver Shield

      It is funny how Zionist apologists justify the Zionists collectivist, racist treatment of the Palestinians and yet are the first ones to throw the Nazis with their collectivist, racist treatment of the Jews. Cognitive Dissonance anyone?

      Or rush to put the anti-Semitism card out on the floor and then not admit that they called some one a racist.

      Not all Jews are Zionists and not all Zionist are Jews.

      This is a ideological battle and one that I find that collectivism, even that of the Zionist bent, stands in direct opposition of the liberty and freedom the founding father envisioned for us.

      I think that you will find more crimes against the Palestinians at the hands of the Zionists than the other way around.

      One only needs to look at the encroachment of Israel into lands held for Centuries by the Palestinians.

      I would question on a logical level, if Jews wrote the Bible, wouldn’t logic say that they would most likely write something that would benefit them? Kind of hard to debate when you make up the rules.

      It does not really matter in the end, because when the dollar collapses Israel will be forced to stand on her own and I do not think too many people think that is possible in a post dollar world.

      Another article for you to get huffy about…

  • Bet My Silver Dollar

    The Bible is the inspired word of God. Yea, the Jews wrote it under the direction of God. Are you going to argue with God now? I feel sorry for you. My Bible is open to Genesis 12. In this chapter God promises a nation to Abram. Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go forth from your country, and from your relatives and from your father’s house, to the land which I will show you; and I will make you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and so you shall be a blessing; and I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.” Are you arrogant enough to argue with the Word of God? Keep cursing Israel and you will be cursed. I will pray for you tonight that the Lord would deal with your accusing spirit.

    • Silver Shield

      Are you ignorant enough to think that man has not bent the word of God to serve their earthly desires and goals?

    • Rex

      OK, bible scholar, interpret this:
      Ezekiel 38:8

      In the latter years you will come into the land of those brought back from the sword and gathered from many people on the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate; they were brought out of the nations, and now all of them dwell safely. 9 You will ascend, coming like a storm, covering the land like a cloud, you and all your troops and many peoples with you.”

      10 ‘Thus says the Lord God: “On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: 11 You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’— 12 to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land.
