Let's just focus on two recent stories that have dominated the news the past few days.
The first one involves the secret service agent who allegedly, with no provocation, strong-armed a reporter at a Trump event. Of course, this proves that Trump is dangerous - or something.
Depending on where you saw the videos, the secret service agent was justified or not justified in his actions. The story took on a life of its own and cascaded through the blogosphere and news sites like an octopus on steroids.
There are now many videos available from many different angles, clearly showing the arrogant and unkempt reporter is lucky the agent let him live.
But, depending on the proclivities of the person posting, the exact opposite position is still being reported.
Trump and the KKK
Then we have the infamous "Trump supports the KKK and refuses to disavow an endorsement by David Duke" meme, who, I might add, is no longer a member of the KKK.
The problem here is that David Duke never endorsed Trump. How do we know this? Because David Duke said so.
Yet today, CNN published a YouTube video of Paul Ryan attacking Trump for supporting the KKK.
Disclosure: When someone says, "Who we are as a country" my hackles immediately go on full alert. I don't need Paul Ryan to tell me who we are as a country or a people. I am my own person, not some cog in the spirit of the collective, and I don't need the likes of Paul Ryan to tell me who I am.
Ryan finishes with, "I hope this is the last time I'll have to speak out on this race." Me, too, Paul.
We are being manipulated and lied to daily. Our Google searches take us to whatever the MSM and corporations (virtually the same entity) want us to go, and we go along with it because we "trust" Google. Don't.
Online sources like Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat and Facebook, can be manipulated to send you messages that appear to be legitimate. They're not.
If I can go to a site such as UK Daily Mail and be assaulted with "sponsored links" that pretty much reflect everything I've searched on Google the past few days, including recipes, to think we're not being targeted is foolish and dangerous.
Am I suggesting that you become a suspicious and wary person? Yes. Pay attention to what you read and listen to, develop your reasoning powers, and apply logic and a healthy dose of skepticism when perusing the internet.
From: Jon Rappoport:
Every major covert op has the same concealed objective: “defeat the enemy and thereby gain more control.”
But control over what?
Beyond the usual answers, the root answer is: “control over the mind.”
Why? Because if perception and thought can be channeled, directed, reduced, and weakened, then it doesn’t matter what humans do to resist other types of control. They will always go down the wrong path. They will always operate within limited and bounded territory. They will always ignore their own authentic power.
I’m talking about power that exceeds the “normal” and “average” ability to influence the stream of cause and effect.
The “prison” of cause and effect is a concept that is floated as part of the basic covert op to convince people they are small, diminished, and at the mercy of larger forces.
But underneath it all, humans have the capacity to “jump the chain” and become, as it were, “first causes.”
And not in some minor way.
Unfortunately, the popular view of how this can be accomplished is often rooted in New Age notions: the instantaneous fix; the Disneyesque manifestation; the “surrender to the universe.”
These are psy-op versions of the real thing, floated as part of the overall covert op to engage the gullible among us.
“Jumping the chain” is actually a matter of reversing the op. In other words, instead of accepting the mural of reality that has been created for us, each person creates his own.
This, dare I say it (yes, I do), is a heroic enterprise. And by heroic, I mean: without surrender. Without compromise.
Beyond the covert op, every human has the capacity to act in ways that change the flow of time, the architecture of space, and the sources of energy.
The degree to which an individual believes this is impossible mirrors his acceptance of the basic covert op on planet Earth.
When people speak about “hope for all of us,” they rarely refer to the power of the individual, but that’s where it starts. With the individual. Unchained.
