World Population from Seven Billion Down to 500 Million Using Vaccines

It is increasingly apparent that the long-term sustainability of civilization will require not just a leveling-off of human numbers as projected over the coming half-century, but a colossal reduction in both population and consumption. It is past time to think boldly about the midrange future and to consider alternatives that go beyond merely slowing or stopping the growth of global population. The human species must develop and quickly implement a well-conceived, clearly articulated, flexible, equitable, and internationally coordinated program focused on bringing about a very significant reduction in human numbers over the next two or more centuries. This effort will likely require a global population shrinkage of at least two-thirds to three-fourths, from a probable mid-to-late 21st century peak in the 9 to 10 billion range to a future (23rd century and beyond) "population optimum" of not more than 2 to 3 billion. Humanity must recognize that there are finite physical, biological, and ecological limits to the Earth's long-term sustainable carrying capacity. Time is increasingly precious, and our window of opportunity for effective remedial action may not be open much longer—assuming it has not already closed. - Ken Smail, Global Population Reduction: Confronting the Inevitable, Worldwatch Institute, September 26, 2011

2010 World Population Data Sheet (Excerpt)

Continuing a 12-year decline, the U.S. birth rate has dropped to the lowest level since national data have been available (the past 30 years), according to statistics just released by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The national birth rate fell 4 percent between 2007 and 2009. With a national average of 66.7 births per 1,000 women between the ages of 15 and 44, nearly every demographic group had lower birth rates, with the sole exception being women over 40 (see graph).

Population Reference Bureau
July 28, 2010

Many countries are facing a shrinking pool of their working-age populations, often considered to be ages 15 to 64, to support the population ages 65+, jeopardizing pension guarantees and long-term health care programs for the elderly.

Worldwide in 1950, there were 12 persons of working age for every person age 65 or older. By 2010, that number had shrunk to 9. By 2050, this elderly support ratio, which indicates levels of potential social support available for the elderly, is projected to drop to 4.

The Population Reference Bureau's 2010 World Population Data Sheet and its summary report offer detailed information on 19 population, health, and environment indicators for more than 200 countries.

"There are two major trends in world population today," says Bill Butz, PRB's president. "On the one hand, chronically low birth rates in developed countries are beginning to challenge the health and financial security of their elderly. On the other, the developing countries are adding over 80 million to the population every year and the poorest of those countries are adding 20 million, exacerbating poverty and threatening the environment."

Global population rose to 6.9 billion in 2010, with nearly all of that growth in the world's developing countries. In contrast, the world's developed countries, totaling 1.2 billion people, saw their populations continue to age as the numbers of those of working age dwindle. For example, Japan has a total fertility rate of 1.4 children per woman, and an elderly support ratio of 3—the lowest in the world, along with Germany and Italy. By 2050, Japan will have only 1 working-age adult for every elderly person; Germany and Italy will each have 2.

"In 2011, world population will reach 7 billion, just 12 years after reaching 6 billion," says Carl Haub, PRB's senior demographer and author of this year's data sheet. "It also took 12 years to climb from 5 billion to 6 billion. The big question now is when will we reach 8 billion? Most likely in 2024, 13 years after the seventh billion, but it could be sooner."

The 2010 World Population Data Sheet shows the contrasts between developing and developed countries. Comparing Ethiopia and Germany illustrates how stark the contrasts can be (see table). Even though Ethiopia and Germany have almost the same population size today, Ethiopia is projected to more than double its population from 85 million today to 174 million in 2050. Germany's population will likely decline from 82 million to 72 million over that same time. The cause of these enormous differences is lifetime births per woman. Ethiopia's total fertility rate of 5.4 is four times greater than Germany's rate of 1.3.

Vaccinate the World: Gates, Rockefeller Seek Global Population Reduction

Old-Thinker News
September 4, 2010

The global elite has launched a world-wide operation against an unaware population to reduce and control fertility. Vaccines and even staple food crops have been modified to achieve these goals.

If you can’t seem to bring yourself to believe that such an undertaking is possible, or that there are human beings willing and capable, look back in time; this kind of conspiracy isn’t new. In fact, this kind of control was idealized by Plato some 2,300 years ago in his momentous work The Republic. Plato wrote that a ruling elite should guide society, “…whose aim will be to preserve the average of population.” He further stated,

“There are many other things which they will have to consider, such as the effects of wars and diseases and any similar agencies, in order as far as this is possible to prevent the State from becoming either too large or too small.”

The activities of the ruling elite in controlling population, writes Plato, must be kept secret. He writes,

“Now these goings on must be a secret which the rulers only know, or there will be a further danger of our herd… breaking out into rebellion.”

Peering back into the mists of time and history reveal that there is truly nothing new under the sun. What has been done will be done again, and the 21st Century manifestation of global elites have advanced tools at their disposal.

The GAVI Alliance (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization)

The GAVI Alliance, founded in 2000 with the help of the Gates Foundation, has the goal of vaccinating all of the third world. The member organizations of GAVI are listed on group’s the website, which include:

“…national governments of donor and developing countries, the Bill and Melinda Gates Children’s Vaccine Program, the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Associations (IFPMA), the Rockefeller Foundation, UNICEF, the World Bank Group and the World Health Organization (WHO).”

In December of 2000, David Rockefeller and William H. Gates Sr., among others, visited the Rockefeller University campus to take part in a meeting on “Philanthropy in a Global Century”. While there, Gates spoke glowingly about his inspiration from Rockefeller in founding GAVI,

“Gates said that ‘Taking our lead and our inspiration from work already done by The Rockefeller Foundation, our foundation actually started GAVI by pledging $750 million to something called the Global Fund for Children’s Vaccines, an instrument of GAVI.’”

He also praised the Rockefeller family’s century of philanthropy, saying, ‘It seems like every new corner we turn, the Rockefellers are already there. And in some cases, they have been there for a long, long time.’”

The fact that such a global mechanism like GAVI exists – in the hands of outspoken population control advocates – for delivering vaccines to millions of people across the world should be disconcerting to say the least; Especially when confronted with the mountains of documentation proving that anti-fertility vaccines have been researched and delivered by the World Health Organization with grant money from the Rockefeller Foundation.

Bill Gates reaffirmed the global population control agenda during a recent TED conference presentation in which he stated,

“The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”

Anti-fertility vaccines

As Jurriaan Maessen reports, the World Health Organization, one of GAVI’s partners, teamed up with the World Bank and UN Population Fund in the 1970′s under the “Task Force on Vaccines for Fertility Regulation.” The Task Force,

“…acts as a global coordinating body for anti-fertility vaccine R&D in the various working groups and supports research on different approaches, such as anti-sperm and anti-ovum vaccines and vaccines designed to neutralize the biological functions of hCG. The Task Force has succeeded in developing a prototype of an anti-hCG-vaccine.”

In 1989 research was conducted by the National Institute of Immunology in New Delhi India on the use of ‘carriers’ such as Tetanus Toxoid and Diphtheria to bypass the immune system and deliver the female hormone called human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG). The research paper was carried in the Oxford University Press in 1990 and was titled “Bypass by an alternate ‘carrier’ of acquired unresponsiveness to hCG upon repeated immunization with tetanus-conjugated vaccine.”

Rockefeller Foundation is listed in the document as giving grants for the research.

By delivering hCG within a Tetanus vaccine – which acts as the carrier – the human body treats hCG as an intruder and creates antibodies against it. This has the effect of sterilizing women who receive the vaccine, and in many cases miscarriage when given during pregnancy.

Soon after anti-fertility vaccines were successfully developed, hCG (Human chorionic gonadotrophin) containing Tetanus vaccines were deployed across multiple third-world countries. Many of these countries were specifically targeted in the U.S. Government’s 1974 National Security Memorandum 200 document for population reduction. The document recommended at the time in 1974 that “injectable contraceptives” receive further funding.

In the aftermath of widespread covert use of anti-fertility vaccines, the BBC aired a documentary titled “The Human Laboratory” in 1995. The discovery of “contaminated” Tetanus toxoid vaccines and the resulting sterilization of Philippine women was exposed.

The following are excerpts from the BBC program:

MARY PILAR VERZOSA: The women would say why is it that the tetanus shots that we’ve been getting have had effects on us? Our fertility cycles are all fouled up, some of the women among us have had bleedings and miscarriages, some have lost their babies at a very early stage. The symptoms could come soon after their tetanus vaccination – some the following day, others within a week’s time. For those who were pregnant on their first three or four months the miscarriage was really frightening.

MARY PILAR VERZOSA: I began to suspect that here in the Philippines that’s exactly what’s happening. They have laced the tetanus toxoid vials with the Beta HCG.

MARY PILAR VERZOSA: Oh boy that was really something when this came out of my fax machine. Report on HCG concentration in vaccine vials. Three out of those four vials registered positive for HCG, so my suspicions are affirmed that here in our country they are not only giving plain tetanus toxoid vaccination to our women, they are also giving anti-fertility.

According to the local population of the Akha in Thailand, pregnant women are forced to receive vaccines – including tetanus – in order to get ID cards for their children. The vaccine often results with miscarriage. In the video below, Matthew McDaniel, a human rights activist who has been working with the Akha people of Thailand, speaks with two Akha women about the forced Tetanus vaccine and the resulting miscarriages.

Rural populations of the third world have caught on to possible effects of vaccination. Their fears are dismissed as “rumors” and “myths” by the mainstream press that fails to report on the established precedence of anti-fertility vaccine research. Often, those reassuring that the vaccines are safe are the very organizations engaged in population reduction efforts. A 2006 press release from UNICEF (United Nations Children Fund), which is involved with vaccinating many third world countries, quotes the Assistant Project Officer for Health in Ethiopia’s Southern Nations, Tersit Assefa,

“In other places, women of this age often stay away,” said Ms. Tersit. “All sorts of misguided rumours go round that the injections will sterilize them or harm them in some way. But here, the village elders are on board. They are here, encouraging the women to come along.”

While the needle is an obvious and visible form of vaccination, new technologies have been developed with the financial support of the Rockefeller Foundation. Edible vaccines, according to the Indian Journal of Medical Microbiology, will be a more “socioculturally acceptable” alternative to needles. In other words, people will be less resistant to eating a mundane banana than taking a shot in the arm. The Journal states that new edible vaccine technology may serve a dual purpose of birth control. As stated,

“Edible vaccines hold great promise as a cost-effective, easy-to-administer, easy-to-store, fail-safe and socioculturally readily acceptable vaccine delivery system, especially for the poor developing countries… A variety of delivery systems have been developed. Initially thought to be useful only for preventing infectious diseases, it has also found application in prevention of autoimmune diseases, birth control, etc…”

The war against population is an ongoing effort on part of the global elite. This operation is truly massive in scope, but if we live our lives in fear of what the future may bring, we allow ourselves to be defeated. Let your awareness of the situation drive you to make positive changes. We still have the power to raise awareness among our fellow man, and despite what the elite may believe, they do not have a monopoly on the future.

Vaccines Useful for Population Reduction

Natural News
October 1, 2010

In a recent TED conference presentation, Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates, who has donated hundreds of millions of dollars to new vaccine efforts, speaks on the issue of CO2 emissions and its effects on climate change. He presents a formula for tracking CO2 emissions as follows: CO2 = P x S x E x C.

P = People
S = Services per person
E = Energy per service
C = CO2 per energy unit

Then he adds that in order to get CO2 to zero, “probably one of these numbers is going to have to get pretty close to zero.”

Following that, Bill Gates begins to describe how the first number — P (for People) — might be reduced. He says:

“The world today has 6.8 billion people… that’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”

Reducing the world population through vaccines

This statement by Bill Gates was not made with any hesitation, stuttering or other indication that it might have been a mistake. It appears to have been a deliberate, calculated part of a well developed and coherent presentation.

So what does it mean when Bill Gates says “if we do a really great job on new vaccines… we could lower [world population] by 10 or 15 percent?”

Clearly, this statement implies that vaccines are a method of population reduction. So is “health care,” which all NaturalNews readers already know to be more of a “sick care” system that actually harms more people than it helps.

Perhaps that’s the whole point of it. Given that vaccines technology help almost no one from a scientific point of view, it raises the question: For what purpose are vaccines being so heavily pushed in the first place?

Bill Gates seems to be saying that one of the primary purposes is to reduce the global population as a mechanism by which we can reduce CO2 emissions.

How can vaccines actually be used to reduce world population?

Let’s conduct a mental experiment on this issue. If vaccines are to be used to reduce world population, they obviously need to be accepted by the majority of the people. Otherwise the population reduction effort wouldn’t be very effective.

And in order for them to be accepted by the majority of the people, they obviously can’t just kill people outright. If everybody started dropping dead within 24 hours of receiving the flu shot, the danger of vaccines would become obvious rather quickly and the vaccines would be recalled.

Thus, if vaccines are to be used as an effective population reduction effort, there are really only three ways in which they might theoretically be “effective” from the point of view of those who wish to reduce world population:

#1) They might kill people slowly in a way that’s unnoticeable, taking effect over perhaps 10 – 30 years by accelerating degenerative diseases.

#2) They might reduce fertility and therefore dramatically lower birth rates around the world, thereby reducing the world population over successive generations. This “soft kill” method might seem more acceptable to scientists who want to see the world population fall but don’t quite have the stomach to outright kill people with conventional medicine. There is already evidence that vaccines may promote miscarriages.

#3) They might increase the death rate from a future pandemic. Theoretically, widespread vaccination efforts could be followed by a deliberate release of a highly virulent flu strain with a high fatality rate. This “bioweapon” approach could kill millions of people whose immune systems have been weakened by previous vaccine injections.

World War III, the Rise of the Anti-Christian One-world Government and Religion, and the Abomination of Desolation

The goal of the New Jerusalem Covenant Project is to create the plan by which Antichrist can solve the Middle East crisis; Antichrist will use this crisis to stage his appearance in the world. Antichrist is supposed to appear at the end of the Middle East crisis (World War III). The prophetic reality of Daniel 9:24-27, Matthew 24:15 and Revelation 11:1-12 is that the new Temple will be built after World War III and will produce the Man of Sin. Thus, the Illuminati plans to destroy the Dome of the Rock during the World War III fighting so that their Antichrist can rebuild Solomon's Temple. This reality means that Arabs will retain control over the Temple Mount until the moment Antichrist comes to the world scene and seizes it for the Jews so his temple can be created. "Peace and safety" will be heralded, and the leaders of the major nations will be busy taking credit for their "brilliant" leadership that seemingly finally solved the deeply engrained religious strife in and around Jerusalem that has plagued mankind for the past 1,400 years. - David Bay, Cutting Edge Ministries

"When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation,
Spoken of by Daniel the prophet,
Stand in the holy place,
(Whoso readeth, let him understand:)
Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
For then shall be great tribulation,
Such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved:
But for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened."
(Matthew 24:15-22)

Israeli-American Crisis Update (Excerpt)

By Robert Palaszewski, The Absolute Truth & Prophecy, Issue #286
April 4, 2010

...The World Tribune confirmed that according to some scientific / military sources, that for the most part, nuclear weapons have been rendered obsolete by this new generation of Quantum Potential (QP) and Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) weapons. China, Russia and Israel are all thought to be more advanced than the U.S. in these areas.[6] Their ultimate defeat would, according to David Bay, fulfill the judgment prophecies of Zechariah 12 and Joel 3.[7 8]
“For behold, in those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of my people, my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up my land.” (Joel 3:1-2)

Last time out we looked behind the short term plan to birth a messianic New World Order out of worldwide war and chaos. This time we’ll talk about some of the more long-standing plans that the PTB ("powers that be") have had to bring this about. If you’ve been following this series, you’ll see how they dovetail rather nicely with what our friend W has revealed.


A few years back, David Bay of Cutting Edge Ministries did some groundbreaking work, reporting on a seminar of the New England Theosophical Society that outlined for the attendees the plans to call forth the New Age Messiah. Bill Lambert, who was the Director and featured speaker at the conference, believes that prophecy is self-fulfilling.
“What a person thinks, he creates”.[9]
A belief in the concept of Armageddon will lead to massive nuclear war. So too, when enough people believe it, this world will be ready for the New Age Messiah. It is then that he will arrive. This is the same message of The Secret, that New Age drivel that Oprah is hawking on internet radio. Applying the message, Peter Lemesurier, author of The Armageddon Script agrees.
“If the Messiah is to appear, then he must be produced”, says he.[10]
Lambert's remarks, when taken in conjunction with other New Age writings, lay out a clear and rather precise blueprint for realizing the coming New World Order.

Whether with full knowledge or not, it is interesting that the specific steps that Lambert spoke of all dealt, on some level, with events that are clearly predicted in Scripture. We'll take as our working template the scenario outlined at the Theosophy seminar.

With due props to David Bay of Cutting Edge Ministries, here is the plan that according to Mr Lambert and other Illuminati types, which they had hoped to unfold by about 2010.
  1. The New Jerusalem Covenant Project - The problem of Palestine will be solved when Jerusalem becomes a truly international city for Jew, Christian and Muslim alike. [The world is almost daily pressuring Israel to cave in to demands to make East Jerusalem capital of a new Palestinian state. This newsletter has covered in the past how the Vatican would like to see it declared an international city — to operate under the control of the Catholic Church.]

  2. One World Religion Declared - A concurrent religious celebration for Christians, Muslim and Buddhists will occur. At that time the New World Order Religion will be announced.

  3. A Global Political / Business Conference - The conference will put arms as well as human and environmental resources, and the control of space, under control of a global governing body.

    Now here's David Bay quoting conference speaker Bill Lambert. Once these religious and political / business meetings have taken place “a grand merger of all forces will occur world-wide that will move the world in any desired direction.” [They're planning the political / religious super kingdom of Antichrist.] That desired direction starts with a combination political / religious settlement in the Middle East.

    Lambert again:
    “Once this religious problem is solved, then the power and influence of the Orthodox Jews in Israel would permanently decline”.
    There is a concerted effort to take down the Orthodox Jews.

  4. The New Temple Is Built - It is a combined Temple / Church / Mosque. [I've seen the design for this building on the internet in the past but have not recently been able to locate it.]

  5. War Drives The Plan - Quoting Mr Lambert:
    “The impetus toward this type of settlement is made possible only because of a general fear of war. This fear of war must be maintained until the desired political and religious changes have been instituted”.[11]
It's necessary here to take a little side trip to the work of Peter Lemesurier, author of The Armageddon Script. In his book he lays out in detail just how the Illuminati New World Order types plan to maintain the pressure that will create the conditions necessary for the rise of the Antichrist.

Here are the details of the plan.
  • Arab Israeli War - Israel wins an annihilating victory, fulfilling may Biblical prophecies.

  • Catastrophic Terror — Major terror attacks against the U.S. and Europe using WMDs.

  • Nuclear Crisis In Korea - Lemesurier writes,
  • “A hair raising nuclear confrontation in Korea may, towards the end of the period, threaten man's very survival.”
  • Taiwan Invasion - China uses the fact that the U.S. is occupied on two fronts to invade Taiwan, challenging the already stretched American Naval forces in the region.

  • Alien Presence - Extraterrestrials manifest a presence that leads to the collapse of the religious beliefs of many around the globe. [Artificial or demonic in nature.] Here are the words of Bill Lambert as quoted by David Bay of Cutting Edge Ministries.
    “UFO's and Aliens are part of the New World Order. They are benevolent beings which will aid mankind in attaining the goal of becoming one humanity. They will appear at the proper time to enable mankind to make that Quantum Leap of Collective Consciousness — when the Anti-Christ appears.” [Henry Kissinger has suggested much the same thing.]
  • Stock Market to Crash - You can see why.

  • Earthquakes around the world - Unconfirmed reports exist that Russian and U.S. military capabilities include the ability to create earthquakes.

  • The New Age Christ Appears - He is a man of peace. He claims to be the Jewish Messiah, Jesus, Mohammed and Buddha rolled into one. He shows displays of supernatural power.[12]
So that's the plan to reveal the New Messiah — and how that works has some very interesting prophetic implications.

Unveiling The New Messiah
“And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.” (Revelation 13:12)
Everything that has passed so far is but the preamble to what follows. The rebellion of Nimrod, the infiltration of the Church, Fallen Angels cohabiting with the “daughters of men” in Genesis 6, the secret plots of the Illuminati / One Worlders, and the monosyllabic chanting of the New Agers: It's all about setting up the short-lived triumph of the Beast — the Antichrist.

We have just examined the plot to set the stage for the rise of the New Christ. Now we'll look at just how he is revealed. We pick up again the revelations of Bill Lambert at the Theosophy seminar as reported by the Cutting Edge's David Bay.

1. The Pope Takes Command - According to Mr Lambert:
“At the proper moment in history, the Pope will visit the combined Jewish / Christian / Moslem sector of Jerusalem to announce that all religions should be combined into one. This action will finally break the Middle East logjam. This will mark the advent of the One World Religious System under the False Prophet of Revelations.”
Lambert is saying that some future pope will operate as the False Prophet of Revelation.[13] Catholic Writers Agree. We have seen how Roman heavyweights — like Francis of Assisi, Bishop Sheen and Cardinal O'Conner, among many — have taken the position that the False Prophet of the Last Days would indeed be an apostate prince of the Church.[14] The Prophecies of St Malachy — These extra-biblical writings lay out a scenario in where there will be only one or, at the most, two more popes before Christ's return.[15]

2. The Messiah Is Revealed -
“Minutes before the Antichrist arises, some supernatural sound will be heard and spiritually felt by everybody on the planet, simultaneously…with everyone's attention aroused, images of Antichrist will appear simultaneously over the entire earth, speaking to mankind, each in his own language. The signs and wonders will have begun.” (Bill Lambert)
According to Lambert,
“He will appear as different beings to different people”.
Alice Bailey says,
“A loud sound will be heard world-wide which will herald the coming of Maitreya the Christ. Prompted by this sound, people will be aware of his coming on three distinct levels: Spiritual, physical, and emotional”.[16]
Constance Cumbey tells us,
“His three-dimensional image will appear over all nations of the earth simultaneously”.[17]
Again, this agrees with much of what certain segments of the Catholic world is expecting.[18]
  • Pope John Paul Expected a Marian Vision - Recall that we saw that Vatican Jesuit Malachy Martin revealed this in his book The Keys of This Blood. John Paul believed that he was promised a powerfully-psychic worldwide vision of Mary that would confirm the primacy of both Rome and the Pope. It would produce an “engulfing chaos” that will lead to mass conversion. It will be preceded by a loud sound, light or odor.[19]

  • We Have The Technology - The Pentagon, for instance has signed on to the notion of the “use of digital technology to create false realities”. It is no great feat to be able to insert people — even dead people like Steve McQueen — into commercials; or, in the case of Woody Allen's Zelig, into old newsreels. It is so sophisticated that the subjects seem to be interacting with those on the original film. A blending of the real and the cinematic, the Chinese Olympic fireworks display in the summer of 2008 fooled audiences around the world.
The danger in all of this, of course, is that instead of being used for just entertainment and advertising purposes, it could be used to actually create the news. In fact, prior to the Iraqi war, the Pentagon considered faking videos that showed Saddam involved in sexual perversions and “crying like a baby”. One former military affairs analyst, William Arkin, revealed that a plan was even worked out to “project a huge holographic image of Allah into the skies over Baghdad, urging Iraqis to overthrow Hussein”. It was abandoned for logistical reasons — and more importantly, because no one was quite sure what Allah would look like anyway.[20]

The Technology of Spiritual Deception

If we are to believe their own pronouncements, the leaders of the New Age Movement have a surprise in store for Mankind: a technological ambush, aimed at changing the spiritual status quo. Peter Lemesurier, writing in The Armageddon Script, tells us that the New Age Messiah will be “humanly produced” with the aid of “technological phenomenon” and “special effects”.

Jerry E. Smith, in HAARP: The Ultimate Weapon of the Conspiracy, talks of a plan to
“…take over the world by projecting holographic images into the sky while beaming thoughts directly into our heads, telling us to accept the new 'god' of their design”.[21]
(I know that sounds nuts — it does to me too!) Describing that very technology from a more independent, scientific perspective, Ivan Amato, in MIT's Magazine, Technology Review, believes that
“…the stage is set for deception to move the world in new ways”.[22]
One example is something called Project Blue Beam, first revealed in 1994 by Serge Monast, an investigative reporter for the International Free Press in Canada. He later died under mysterious circumstances. Monast reported that Operation Blue Beam was a technological conspiracy by NASA scientists aimed at abolishing “all Christian traditional religions in order to replace them by a one-world religion”, which in turn would serve as the necessary prerequisite for the establishment of the One World Government. This plan of techno-deception has four aspects.
  1. Discrediting All the Worlds Religions - Through earthquakes that lead to “new” archaeological discoveries.

  2. Global Apparition of “God / Messiah Figure” - Achieved through a giant Space Show, using laser projections of three-dimensional holographic images that will speak as “God” and speak to regions in their predominant native languages: Christ to Christians, Mohammed to Muslims, etc.

  3. “Spiritual” Confirmation - Artificial Electronic Telepathy - ELF, VLF & LF waves utilized to send messages to individuals that will seem to be God communicating with individuals from within their individual souls. (I'm not vouching for the legitimacy or effectiveness of their technology here, just reporting the plan.) Many are the reports of successful use of these “mind control” technologies.

  4. Fear of Alien Invasion & Satanic Infiltration - Creating the illusion of an impending alien landing and a ubiquitous demonic presence.[23]
The disturbing fact is that New Age writers and high-tech publications confirm the plausibility of much of this plan. Consider point one: The use of artificial earthquakes were blithely referred to in Lemesurier's New Age tome, The Armageddon Script. It has long been a standing rumor in technological circles that several countries have the capability of using sound waves, “Radiant Energy” and scalar technology to control weather patterns and shift tectonic plates under the oceans. Now China has set up a National Weather Control Center.

Of course it's hard to swallow the whole alien presence bit. But we've reviewed the connection there at length. New Age sources are quite insistent that other-worldly beings are all part of the plan. Bill Lambert of the Theosophical Society stated clearly that
“UFO's and aliens are part of the New World Order. They are benevolent beings which will aid mankind in attaining the goal of becoming one humanity. They will appear at the proper time to enable mankind to make that Quantum Leap of Collective Consciousness — when the Anti-Christ appears.”[24]
Another hard part for me was point three: The use of “Artificial Electronic Telepathy” or mind control. I thought it challenged the boundaries of credulity until I stumbled on a website detailing recent American patents for subliminal suggestion and mind control. Here are just of few examples of the more recent patents issued.
  • Nervous System Manipulation by Electro-Magnetic Fields — 2003,
  • Magnetic Device for Producing a Desired Brain State — 2002,
  • Electric Field Manipulation of Nervous Systems — 2001,
  • Communication System & Method…enabling communication through monitored brain activity and wave analysis — 2000.
There were others covering the manipulation of nervous systems through Acoustic Manipulation, fluctuating electronic fields, Pulsative Manipulation, and a Brain Wave Inducing System patented in 1999. The era of mind-control is no longer some far-future science fiction fantasy.[25] All of this could set the stage for a “False Rapture”. Next we'll investigate that possibility.


FEMA BADGES & MICROCHIPS - It was reported to this newsletter by reliable sources that the new FEMA employee badges contain a microchip that workers are being told contains a microchip which contains all personal information as well as a tracking capability. The issuing FEMA official informed his charges that the badge's location could be traced anywhere.[26]

LAW ENFORCEMENT CHIEFS RESIGNING - An article published in February detailed how at least 70 police chiefs and sheriffs have resigned their positions in the last months. Many of these left after serving only weeks or months on the job. So what's up with that?[27] Decorated Phoenix lawman Jack McLamb warns that it is all due to the fact that the PTB are preparing for the imposition of martial law, and many officers don’t want to have to enforce that against the American public.[28] This line of thinking was also confirmed by a local law enforcement official who said that it was “common knowledge” among the rank and file that martial law was coming and that people were leaving because they “don’t want any part of it.” This officer said that as for resignations, you can “expect more”.

MARTIAL LAW TRAINING - The Houston Police Department is set to begin training a special unit to “staff checkpoints at key infrastructure points throughout the city”. This would be a first for a domestic police department in the United States. According to Infowars, “The Checkpoint Team will be armed with Assault Rifle Carbines and shoot to kill orders”.[29]

TRUER WORDS - The saying goes, “You can learn a lot about a person by the friends they keep.” And so it is with the supporters of the new Health Care law. Planned Parenthood, for instance, celebrated the legislation by declaring “Victory” for the pro-abortion provisions of the bill on its Action Center website. They even dismissed the President's executive order as “a symbolic gesture” to abortion opponents.[30 31] Cuba's Communist Dictator also signaled his support for Obamacare.[32]

But it was Rev. Al Sharpton that finally cut to the heart of the matter while commenting on FOX News.
“I think this began the transforming of the country”.
He went on to explain what many have seen for some time now. This is a transformation toward socialism. Sharpton explained that
“The American public overwhelmingly voted for socialism when they elected President Obama”.[33]

Obama Signs 'White House Rural Council,' an Agenda 21 Executive Order

John Birch Society CEO Arthur R. Thompson introduces the Stop Agenda 21 action project and shows how the UN’s Local Agenda 21 program may already be in your local community, through your home town or city’s membership in ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability. Agenda 21 seeks for the government to curtail your freedom to travel as you please, own a gas-powered car, live in suburbs or rural areas, and raise a family. Furthermore, it would eliminate your private property rights through eminent domain. Agenda 21 can be stopped at the local level by organizing and informing others to encourage local government officials to end their community’s membership in ICLEI and to repeal any of the Agenda 21-related “sustainable development” laws and ordinances they have enacted. - John Birch Society, Stop Agenda 21

Sustainable Development is the United Nations’ Agenda 21 program, which calls for the government to curtail your freedom to travel as you please, own a gas-powered car, live in suburban or rural areas, determine the number of children you may have, and determine the “rates of harvest” of farms and fisheries; and it calls for the government to eliminate your private property rights through eminent domain and to increase the price on goods and services through artificial shortages and new consumer taxes.

Stop the UN's Agenda 21 & 'Sustainable Development'

Infiltrated Nation
September 17, 2011

On June 9, 2011 President Obama signed Executive Order 13575, which established the creation of the White House Rural Council (WHRC). The purpose of the WHRC is to facilitate the federal coordination and implementation of sustainable development at the local community level.

President Obama’s EO 13575 reads in part:

Section 1. Policy. Sixteen percent of the American population lives in rural counties. Strong, sustainable rural communities are essential to winning the future and ensuring American competitiveness in the years ahead. These communities supply our food, fiber, and energy, safeguard our natural resources, and are essential in the development of science and innovation. Though rural communities face numerous challenges, they also present enormous economic potential. The Federal Government has an important role to play in order to expand access to the capital necessary for economic growth, promote innovation, improve access to health care and education, and expand outdoor recreational activities on public lands.

The Executive Order references “sustainable rural communities,” which is a reference to “sustainable development” – the nomenclature for the United Nations’ Agenda 21 program.

The term “sustainable development” was popularized in the now often-cited 1987 United Nations report, entitled Our Common Future, released by the Brundtland Commission. Chaired by its namesake — Gro Harlem Brundtland, the former Director-General of the World Health Organization and the Vice President of the World Socialist Party, the Brundtland Commission defined “sustainable development” as:

…development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

This became the central theme of the United Nations’ 1992 Earth Summit, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where the UN unveiled its program on sustainable development: Agenda 21, signed on to by 178 world leaders including then-President George H. W. Bush.

Sustainable Development is the United Nations’ Agenda 21 program, which calls for the government to curtail your freedom to travel as you please, own a gas-powered car, live in suburban or rural areas, determine the number of children you may have, and determine the “rates of harvest” of farms and fisheries; and it calls for the government to eliminate your private property rights through eminent domain and to increase the price on goods and services through artificial shortages and new consumer taxes.

Maurice Strong, the Secretary-General of the United Nations 1992 Earth Summit had this to say about sustainable development:

Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class — involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work air conditioning, and suburban housing — are not sustainable.

Since Agenda 21 was not an official treaty it did not require ratification by the U.S. Senate and has instead penetrated the American heartland and coastal regions through the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI), which now prefers to be known as Local Governments for Sustainability.

ICLEI was founded in 1990, as the ‘International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives,’ at the World Congress of Local Governments for a Sustainable Future, held at the United Nations in New York City. According to its website, ICLEI describes itself as “an association of over 1220 local government Members who are committed to sustainable development.” Spanning over “70 different countries and representing more than 569,885,000 people,” ICLEI facilitates local governments in the implementation of UN Local Agenda 21.

You can find out if your local government is member by taking the following three-click challenge:
  • Type WWW.ICLEI.ORG on your web browser & click go
  • On the top bar menu of the website click on “Members”
  • On the left side column click on “Global Members”
Scroll down to the United States of America, or other country of your choosing, and see if your local town or city is listed. If listed then you will know you're a member, but if not, do not celebrate just yet; your local government may already be implementing Agenda 21 and sustainable development.

Some buzz words to look out for in your local community are mentions of “smart equity,” “smart codes,” “smart growth,” “sustainable consumption,” “sustainable development,” “sustainable land use,” and “open space.” These terms are normally associated with your local government’s board, committee, or department of “sustainability” or “redevelopment.”

These agencies are usually comprised of their own staff and governing board, appointed by your local government. You might not be aware of this because the establishment of such an agency would have likely occurred without your vote or consent and is now passing ordinances and regulations affecting your livelihood, family, home, and property.

Using ICLEI computer software and smart growth models, a host of new regulations and new zoning laws are implemented by these agencies. One such commonly used model lays out the following new law:

…Government may enter upon the land and act to put it in compliance.

In the publication, Building a More Sustainable Future in Wisconsin, published by the University of Wisconsin-Extension Sustainability Team, it recommends and promotes:

…the importance of state and federal training and education programs to generate educators, facilitators and motivators who would be capable of going into individual homes and helping people develop their own personalized sustainability action plans.

The reason for this disregard for private property rights is due to the United Nation’s view on private property. According to “Section Property rights and the use of biological resources” of Global Biodiversity Assessment (1996), published for the United Nations Environment Programme:

Property rights are not absolute and unchanging, but rather a complex, dynamic and shifting relationship between two or more parties, over space and time.

This interpretation of property rights is a far cry from the Founding Fathers. President George Washington said,
“Private property and freedom are inseparable.”
His successor, President John Adams said that
“Property must be secured, or liberty cannot exist.”
The forefathers of this nation understood that without property rights there could not be freedom and individual liberty; the state can control the people so long as the people are on government-controlled land. The United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights makes no recognition or mention of this fundamental right.

If Agenda 21 is fully implemented it will eventually terminate your right to own property; and once that fundamental right is lost, tyranny is ripe to flourish. Your ability to live the lifestyle you desire, your freedom to pursue and reach the American dream of owning a large home and raising a family, and the means to travel as you see fit are all at jeopardy so long as your local government adheres to the principles and protocols of Agenda 21 and sustainable development.

You can help put a halt to this United Nations’ environmental juggernaut by contacting your State Representative and State Senator and encouraging them to cease funding and oppose all measures for sustainable development.

You should also work with your local officials to withdraw from ICLEI, if your local government is a member, and to cease implementation of sustainable development measures. Click here for further resources for doing this.

Obama Signs Agenda 21-Related Executive Order

Computer World reports that during his December 6, 2008 video address, Obama announced that he would invest in new computers for schools, expanded broadband access -- particularly in rural areas -- and funding on technologies to reduce medical costs as part of his stimulus package (Obama's technology plan calls for $10 billion for the adoption of a "standards-based" electronic health information system, which would include the adoption of electronic medical records). According to a July 14, 2008 news article in Bloomberg, Obama wanted the government to take an active role in reducing poverty and rural isolation with the Web, which would be in line with Google Inc.'s agenda. In November 2007, Obama held a meeting with Google employees to outline his plan to subsidize $5 billion to rural and low-income households for high-speed internet access. [Source]

The New American
June 22, 2011

President Obama signed his 86th executive order (13575) on June 9, which established the White House Rural Council (WHRC). According to The Blaze, the Executive Order seems to be in line with the United Nations radical Agenda 21, as it is designed “to begin taking control over almost all aspects of the lives of 16 percent of the American people.”

Evidence of this can be found in Section One of the Executive Order, which reads:

Section 1. Policy. Sixteen percent of the American population lives in rural counties. Strong, sustainable rural communities are essential to winning the future and ensuring American competitiveness in the years ahead. These communities supply our food, fiber, and energy, safeguard our natural resources, and are essential in the development of science and innovation. Though rural communities face numerous challenges, they also present enormous economic potential. The Federal Government has an important role to play in order to expand access to the capital necessary for economic growth, promote innovation, improve access to health care and education, and expand outdoor recreational activities on public lands.

As the Executive Order references “sustainable rural communities,” it raises a few eyebrows, since that is one of the key phrases found in the UN plan for sustainable development known as Agenda 21. The order admits that it intends to seize greater power over “food, fiber, and energy,” items that are key to human sustenance.

The mission and function of the White House Rural Council, according to the Executive Order, is as follows:

“The Council shall work across executive departments, agencies, and offices to coordinate development of policy recommendations to promote economic prosperity and quality of life in rural America, and shall coordinate my Administration’s engagement with rural communities.”

The order doesn't at all camouflage the levels of authority it will achieve. In order to reach the mission set out, the Executive Order states that the council will “make recommendations to the President, through the Director of the Domestic Policy Council and the Director of the National Economic Council, on streamlining and leveraging Federal investments in rural areas, where appropriate, to increase the impact of Federal dollars and create economic opportunities to improve the quality of life in rural America.”

Analyzing the language of the document, The Blaze questions,

“Is there a hint that a ‘rural stimulus plan’ might be in the making? Will the Federal government start pumping money into farmlands under the guise of creating ‘economic opportunities to improve the quality of life in rural America?’ ”

The order also states that the WHRC will “coordinate and increase the effectiveness of Federal engagement with rural stakeholders, including agricultural organizations, small businesses, education and training institutions, healthcare providers, telecommunications services providers, research and land grant institutions, law enforcement, State, local, and tribal governments, and nongovernmental organizations regarding the needs of rural America.”

In other words, the federal government will seemingly control every aspect of rural America.

The order’s mention of “nongovernmental organizations” (NGOs) should be disconcerting, as NGOs are unelected, often government-funded organizations that are key to Agenda 21.

Executive Order 13575 asserts that the WHRC will “coordinate Federal efforts directed toward the growth and development of geographic regions that encompass both urban and rural areas, and identify and facilitate rural economic opportunities associated with energy development, outdoor recreation, and other conservation-related activities.”

As observed by The Blaze,

“When did outdoor recreation become a conservation-related activity?”

So who will be heading these opportunistic efforts? The following is a list of members who will be serving on the new council, which will be headed by Tom Vilsack, the current Secretary of Agriculture:

(1) the Department of the Treasury; Timothy Geithner

(2) the Department of Defense; Robert Gates

(3) the Department of Justice; Eric Holder

(4) the Department of the Interior; Ken Salazar

(5) the Department of Commerce; Gary Locke

(6) the Department of Labor; Hilda Solis

(7) the Department of Health and Human Services; Kathleen Sebelius

(8) the Department of Housing and Urban Development; Shaun Donovan

(9) the Department of Transportation; Ray LaHood

(10) the Department of Energy; Dr. Steven Chu

(11) the Department of Education; Arne Duncan

(12) the Department of Veterans Affairs; Eric Shinseki

(13) the Department of Homeland Security; Janet Napolitano

(14) the Environmental Protection Agency; Lisa Jackson

(15) the Federal Communications Commission; Michael Copps

(16) the Office of Management and Budget; Peter Orszag

(17) the Office of Science and Technology Policy; John Holdren

(18) the Office of National Drug Control Policy; R. Gil Kerlikowske

(19) the Council of Economic Advisers; Austan Goolsbee

(20) the Domestic Policy Council; Melody Barnes (former VP at Center for American Progress)

(21) the National Economic Council; Gene B. Sperling

(22) the Small Business Administration; Karen Mills

(23) the Council on Environmental Quality; Nancy Sutley

(24) the White House Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs; Valerie Jarrett

(25) the White House Office of Cabinet Affairs; and such other executive branch departments, agencies, and offices as the President or Secretary of Agriculture may, from time to time, designate. Chris Lu (or virtually anyone to be designated by the 24 people named above).

The Blaze says of the list,

“It appears that not a single department in the federal government has excluded from the new White House Rural Council, and the wild card option in number 25 gives the president and the agricultural secretary the option to designate anyone to serve on this powerful council.”

Even more notable than the levels of power being achieved by the creation of this new council is the various connections to Agenda 21.

For example, Valerie Jarrett served as a member on the board of the Local Initiatives Support Coalition (LISC), which uses the language of Agenda 21 and ICLEI [International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives] as their webpage descriptively explains the organization’s work to build “sustainable communities.”

Likewise, Melody Barnes is the former Vice President of the George Soros-funded Center for American Progress. Soros is a prime advocate of Agenda 21 and in fact, his Open Society provided $2,147,415 to ICLEI.

Additionally, Hilda Solis and Nancy Sutley, through their environmental endeavors, appear to be connected to Agenda 21. In 2000, Solis received an award for her work on “Environmental Justice.” Sutley served on the Los Angeles Metropolitan Water District and supported the low-flow toilets, which are now being revealed as costing more money and creating an odor problem in the city of San Francisco.

Finally, the timing of the Executive Order is a bit suspicious, since the administration is meeting with a number of Agenda 21 operatives at the end of the month. ICLEI reports:

ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability USA (ICLEI USA) and U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) today announced the launch of the National Press Club Leadership Speaker Series to be held on June 28. The event’s inaugural keynote speaker will be the Honorable Sha Zukang, Secretary-General of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), whose keynote address, The Road to Rio+20, will explain the role of key global and national stakeholders, and the impact and vision of this historic conference.

Fortunately, Americans are becoming increasingly aware of the radical agenda being pushed by the U.N. and supported by this government, and have hosted a number of anti-ICLEI rallies this week, with more planned in the future.

Smart Growth will increasingly herd Americans into regimented and dense urban communities. Smart Growth is Sustainable Development’s ultimate solution, as it will create dense human settlements, subject to increased controls on how residents live and increased restriction on mobility. In the words of one smart growth activist: “It will be the humans in cages with the animals looking in.”

USDA Signs MOU with Rockefeller’s Council of Foundations to Exploit Rural America

Food Freedom
August 20, 2011

On Friday, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that USDA has signed an agreement with the Council on Foundations “to provide new sources of capital, new job opportunities, workforce investment strategies,” and, last on the list but the heart of it: “identification of additional resources.”

The group will work with Obama’s newly created Rural Council, which Vilsack also chairs, to implement UN Agenda 21 – a 300-page, 40-chapter, “soft-law” policy that came out of the UN Conference on Environment and Development in Brazil in 1992.

Though couched in eco-friendly motives, Agenda 21 will “severely limit water, electricity, and transportation - even deny human access to our most treasured wilderness areas, it would monitor all lands and people. No one would be free from the watchful eye of the new global tracking and information system,” wrote Berit Kjos in 1998. (Patrick Wood believes that today’s smart grids are doing just that, and gives an excellent 40-minute speech here.)

Ironically, the Secretary made the announcement while hosting a White House Rural Forum at the Iowa State Fair, the same day news broke about how the USDA lied to farmers and ranchers about federal drought insurance. Vilsack has refused to pay up during the worse drought in US history.

The Council on Foundations formed in 1949 and was joined by the Rockefellers in 1958. It has since morphed into a think tank drawing from the government and private sector. It is funded mainly by corporations and foundations (including Ford, Lilly, and General Mills) to provide “a wide variety of services primarily for endowed, grantmaking organizations throughout the United States and in foreign countries.”

The Memorandum of Understanding will give corporations – whether dressed up as foundations or just openly themselves as profit-driven businesses – full and unhindered access to all resources in rural America, where oil, gas, uranium, coal, water and other resources are buried under people’s private property or under public lands.

In the name of “sustainable” practices, helping rural America, and creating jobs (another broken Obama promise), Obama enlisted 25 federal agencies for his Rural Council, including the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security.

With this new MOU, the USDA has now openly invited corporations in the name of “philanthropy” to join the Rural Council’s efforts.

Government agencies and now corporate America are openly working together to assert complete control over all of rural America, removing state sovereignty which is central to the Constitution, written in by the framers to protect the nation from tyranny.

Vilsack’s press release promises things that superficially sound positive. But if one looks closely, one can easily read the MOU as a corporate gift. Simply remove the gloss about rural America.

With gloss:

  • Foster greater economic opportunities and partner in creation of new sources of rural opportunities to improve the quality of life for rural Americans
  • Identify resources that can be used to produce new economic opportunities
  • Promote new partnerships in workforce investment strategies and
  • Develop innovative, effective and sustainable methods of collaborating to benefit rural communities.

Without gloss:

  • Foster greater economic opportunities and partner in creation of new sources of opportunities to improve corporate interests
  • Identify resources that can be exploited for corporate interests
  • Promote new partnerships in investment strategies for corporate interests
  • Develop innovative, effective methods of collaborating to benefit corporate interests.

Neither Obama’s Rural Council nor the Council on Foundations include farmers and ranchers. This is a corporate-federal assault on the country. Combined, they are moving to achieve the long-planned Agenda 21, which the Rockefellers designed, as a means of getting people off the land so that corporate interests can have direct access to resources to use as they wish.

Orwell Was Right But Off By 30 Years: 1984 Is 2014

1984 is 2014

By Shaka Zulu, Empire Of The Elect
April 24, 2011

George Orwell wrote 1984 in 1949. I first read it in High School in 1974. It was fiction then. Now it looks like this is America in 2014. Here are some quotes from the book (in quotation marks). Decide for yourself how closely the Elites are emulating the ideas found in the book. I will break it down for you. How does it feel to be a Prole?

Here's the link to the online text:

Part 2 Chapter 9

"The two aims of the Party are to conquer the whole surface of the earth and to extinguish once and for all the possibility of independent thought. There are therefore two great problems which the Party is concerned to solve:
  1. One is how to discover, against his will, what another human being is thinking; and
  2. The other is how to kill several hundred million people in a few seconds without giving warning beforehand.
In so far as scientific research still continues, this is its subject matter."

Well we have solved the problem of killing hundreds of millions in seconds. That's no problem. The problem the Elites face is how to do it cleanly. They don't want to leave their heirs a poisoned planet. This is why soft kill is much more desirable. They do this through many means, and I'll leave you to imagine how.

Do you realize that there are people in this world who spend all their time thinking about nothing but how to wage war? Most normal people think very little about war, if at all. War is bad, like Mr. Mackey would say.

But thousands of people are paid by governments all across the planet to think about nothing but killing people. They spend all their time imagining new ways to kill and wage war. Not to mention the millions paid to fight those wars. Think about that for a minute. Are you getting the picture?

Remember, this is the world you live in, not the one you imagine you live in. 1984 is all about trying to wake people up to reality, mmmkay?

"Their lives are dedicated to world conquest, but they also know that it is necessary that the war should continue everlastingly and without victory."

So long as the goal of absolute power and appropriate depopulation has not been achieved by the Elites, they will continue to wage constant warfare in one form or another. Such is the war on terror. It is war on an unseen enemy (actually nonexistent) who lives in an unknown location (this varies from day to day) using unpredictable tactics. So it can be said that anyone, anywhere could be an enemy. Just the war we need to enslave and terrify a free population. Perfect. The Elites may be evil, but they didn't get to be Elites by being stupid.

"In our own day they are not fighting against one another at all. The war is waged by each ruling group against its own subjects, and the object of the war is not to make or prevent conquests of territory, but to keep the structure of society intact."

See. Orwell spelled it out for you.

"The aims of these three groups are entirely irreconcilable:
  • The aim of the High is to remain where they are.
  • The aim of the Middle is to change places with the High.
  • The aim of the Low, when they have an aim (for it is an abiding characteristic of the Low that they are too much crushed by drudgery to be more than intermittently conscious of anything outside their daily lives), is to abolish all distinctions and create a society in which all men shall be equal."
Orwell is right again. So the Elites' (the High) goal has been to destroy the middle class so they don't rise up to change places with the Elites. They use the low to drag down the middle in a fake class warfare scheme.

The numbers of the low has been increasing in recent years with the growth of the welfare class in America. The middle class can no longer hope to raise their status because of an increased amount of taxation and cost of living. The middle class will soon be entirely wiped out financially; and they will be at the mercy of the criminal element in the lower classes, when rioting and chaos begins as social order disintegrates; and the criminal enforcement branches of the Elites will enforce an iron will from the top.

The Elite want to eliminate the possibility of another class rising up to replace them or overthrow them, so they will stop at nothing short of complete totalitarian rule in America. This will first manifest itself as Martial Law in some crisis state to be created in the near future.

"As usual, the High were to be turned out by the Middle, who would then become the High; but this time, by conscious strategy, the High would be able to maintain their position permanently."

Orwell prophesies here of the complete domination of the Elite over society by their application and control of science, technology, finance, and willingness to use complete brutality.

"Therefore, from the point of view of the new groups who were on the point of seizing power, human equality was no longer an ideal to be striven after, but a danger to be averted."

The Elites used the notion of equality to promote class envy among the lower classes and guilt among the middle classes to drag the middle down to the lower level. The Elite have used every device at their disposal to accomplish this: education, media, regulatory bureaucracies, and above all financial control. For instance, the IRS and the EEOC are just two examples of this bureaucratic and financial control. But it is their control of information that has been the most important tool of domination.

"About 1930, practices which had been long abandoned, in some cases for hundreds of years -- imprisonment without trial, the use of war prisoners as slaves, public executions, torture to extract confessions, the use of hostages, and the deportation of whole populations -- not only became common again, but were tolerated and even defended by people who considered themselves enlightened and progressive."

Three words: Gitmo, drones, and depleted uranium.

"Even the Catholic Church of the Middle Ages was tolerant by modern standards. Part of the reason for this was that in the past no government had the power to keep its citizens under constant surveillance. The invention of print, however, made it easier to manipulate public opinion, and the film and the radio carried the process further. With the development of television, and the technical advance which made it possible to receive and transmit simultaneously on the same instrument, private life came to an end.

"Every citizen, or at least every citizen important enough to be worth watching, could be kept for twenty-four hours a day under the eyes of the police and in the sound of official propaganda, with all other channels of communication closed. The possibility of enforcing not only complete obedience to the will of the State, but complete uniformity of opinion on all subjects, now existed for the first time."

Orwell truly was a prophet. The Elites have brought this Orwellian vision of mind control to a reality. Political correctness = complete uniformity of opinion. With credit cards and iphones, they can track your every economic transaction and your location. There are satellites tracking mankind every second of every day. Yes, Big Brother is watching you.

"There are only four ways in which a ruling group can fall from power. Either it is conquered from without, or it governs so inefficiently that the masses are stirred to revolt, or it allows a strong and discontented Middle group to come into being, or it loses its own self-confidence and willingness to govern. These causes do not operate singly, and as a rule all four of them are present in some degree. A ruling class which could guard against all of them would remain in power permanently. Ultimately the determining factor is the mental attitude of the ruling class itself."

The determining factor is not just the mental attitude, but the spiritual and moral fortitude of the ruling class. When America's rulers no longer ruled by spiritual principles, they fell prey to the Elites main tool of control: gold. Once our leaders were bribed into submission or threatened into silence, then a new Elite arose in America--a foreign Elite with no love for America or its citizens.

With the creation of the IRS, the passage of an unconstitutional amendment to collect wage taxes, and the control of our currency being given to the Bankers of the Federal Reserve, we were doomed.

And this Elite ruling class has the mental attitude to retain control--the end justifies the means. They are wicked to the core and will kill, murder, steal, and lie to maintain their control.

"Proletarians, in practice, are not allowed to graduate into the Party. The most gifted among them, who might possibly become nuclei of discontent, are simply marked down by the Thought Police and eliminated."

This is what happened to JFK and is coming to a FEMA camp near YOU!

"From the proletarians nothing is to be feared. Left to themselves, they will continue from generation to generation and from century to century, working, breeding, and dying, not only without any impulse to rebel, but without the power of grasping that the world could be other than it is.

"They could only become dangerous if the advance of industrial technique made it necessary to educate them more highly; but, since military and commercial rivalry are no longer important, the level of popular education is actually declining.

"What opinions the masses hold, or do not hold, is looked on as a matter of indifference. They can be granted intellectual liberty because they have no intellect. In a Party member, on the other hand, not even the smallest deviation of opinion on the most unimportant subject can be tolerated."

Notice how no one in power or anyone who stays in power deviates from the party line. As soon as you deviate, say like a Ron Paul, you are shut out from the public view. You have freedom of thought, so long as you keep your thoughts to yourself. You have freedom of speech so long as you say what you're supposed to say. For instance, racial differences are not to be commented on, unless it's derogatory comments directed at the white male.

There are a thousand instances of thought and speech control used against the populace on a daily basis. But it appears that most people are like the proletarians described by Orwell. They use their intellect as little as possible, and if they use it at all, it's for purposes that hold little or no importance at all to society, such as: who will win the talent competition tonight, or who will be the first to cross the finish line at the circle track?

It is this behavior by the lower and middle classes in America that to the Elites justifies their control over us. We have the power to crush them if only we rose up as a united whole. The fact that we don't proves to the Elites that we aren't worthy of freedom, but must be treated as slaves.

Part 3 Chapter 2

"Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past."

History and education and science are just further means of mind control. All your opinions are formulated by the Elites, whether you like it or not. The only way to escape their control is to learn to think for yourself. But you have to be willing to face the truth.

Part 3 Chapter 3

"The proletarians will never revolt, not in a thousand years or a million. They cannot."

Our forefathers were not proles. They were men with an idea. An idea that God was on their side, because they were on the side of freedom and goodness.

Who among our people or among our rulers has the courage to stand up for anything that represents goodness and virtue? We don't even understand the concepts of goodness and virtue anymore.

The masses will never revolt--until they're starving and then it's going to be too late.

"We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power...'We are the priests of power,' he said. 'God is power.'"

This is the motto of the Elite: Might is Right. That's what is meant by God is power. They want to be gods. We are to be their servants. Lord Acton said it: Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

"The old civilizations claimed that they were founded on love or justice. Ours is founded upon hatred...We have cut the links between child and parent, and between man and man, and between man and woman. No one dares trust a wife or a child or a friend any longer. But in the future there will be no wives and no friends. Children will be taken from their mothers at birth, as one takes eggs from a hen. The sex instinct will be eradicated. Procreation will be an annual formality like the renewal of a ration card. We shall abolish the orgasm. Our neurologists are at work upon it now. There will be no loyalty, except loyalty towards the Party. There will be no love, except the love of Big Brother."

The lawyers, prostitutes for the Elites, have destroyed our country and destroyed every normal human relationship. Because of the evil this creates, hatred is growing. Children are killing their parents and parents their children. Bloodshed and violence is becoming an epidemic.

Beware the judgment of God because it will come and cannot be avoided.

When the problems created by the Elites, and which are based upon human nature, lead us to societal chaos, then Big Brother will step in, and all notion of freedom will be erased and you will have to prove your allegiance to the STATE. You will be chipped, or marked, or made to conform in some manner, and you will have no other choice but death or imprisonment. Welcome to the New World Order.

"If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face -- for ever."

Don't worry children of God, because the boot, the beast, the antichrist, the new world order will only last for about 7 years, and once they have stomped out all goodness and slaughtered their last Christian, then Jesus will return and He will put an end to all this corruption. No, the future is bright for the children of God. If you are a follower of evil, then yes, hell will be your reward.

"We control life, Winston, at all its levels. You are imagining that there is something called human nature which will be outraged by what we do and will turn against us. But we create human nature. Men are infinitely malleable. Or perhaps you have returned to your old idea that the proletarians or the slaves will arise and overthrow us. Put it out of your mind. They are helpless, like the animals. Humanity is the Party. The others are outside -- irrelevant."

Orwell did not believe in Jesus, otherwise he would've known that only the power of God is greater than the power of Satan.

Orwell did understand degenerate human nature very well. And he understood how the power Elite operated. That his book was allowed to be published and advertised demonstrated what the Elite think of the lower classes--they are irrelevant, other than they are good for slave labor.

What is the answer to 1984? Unless you believe in the resurrection of Jesus, the future looks quite bleak. The Elites are not working for the good of mankind. But there is a God who will intervene in the affairs of men and destroy the wicked once and for all, and then and only then will there be peace and love on this earth.

2011: A Brave New Dystopia

By Chris Hedges,
December 31, 2010

The two greatest visions of a future dystopia were Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World” and George Orwell’s “1984.” Among those who watched our descent towards corporate totalitarianism, the debate was "Who was right?"

Would we, as Huxley envisioned, be entranced by entertainment and spectacle, captivated by technology and seduced by profligate consumption to embrace our own oppression? Or would we, as Orwell wrote, be dominated by a repressive surveillance and security state that used crude and violent forms of control?

It turns out Huxley and Orwell were both right. Huxley saw the first stage of our enslavement; Orwell saw the second.

We have been gradually disempowered by a corporate state that, as Huxley foresaw, seduced and manipulated us through sensual gratification, cheap mass-produced goods, boundless credit, political theater and amusement. While we were entertained, the regulations that once kept predatory corporate power in check were dismantled, the laws that once protected us were rewritten and we were impoverished.

Now that credit is drying up, good jobs for the working class are gone forever and mass-produced goods are unaffordable, we find ourselves transported from “Brave New World” to “1984.” The state, crippled by massive deficits, endless war and corporate malfeasance, is sliding toward bankruptcy. It is time for Big Brother to take over from Huxley’s feelies, the orgy-porgy and the centrifugal bumble-puppy.

We are moving from a society where we are skillfully manipulated by lies and illusions to one where we are overtly controlled.
  • Huxley warned of a world where no one wanted to read books. Orwell warned of a world where books were banned.

  • Huxley warned of a culture diverted by mindless pleasure. Orwell warned of a state of permanent war and fear.

  • Huxley warned of a state where a population, preoccupied by trivia and gossip, no longer cared about truth or information. Orwell warned of a state where every conversation and thought was monitored and dissent was brutally punished.

  • Huxley saw us seduced into submission. Orwell saw us frightened into submission.
Huxley, we are discovering, was merely the prelude to Orwell.

Huxley understood the process by which we would be complicit in our own enslavement. Orwell understood the enslavement.

Now that the corporate coup is over, we stand naked and defenseless. We are beginning to understand, as Karl Marx knew, that unfettered and unregulated capitalism is a brutal and revolutionary force that exploits human beings and the natural world until exhaustion or collapse.
“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake,” Orwell wrote in “1984.”

“We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that.

We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.”
The political philosopher Sheldon Wolin uses the term “inverted totalitarianism” in his book “Democracy Incorporated” to describe our political system. It is a term that would make sense to Huxley. In inverted totalitarianism, the sophisticated technologies of corporate control, intimidation and mass manipulation, which far surpass those employed by previous totalitarian states, are effectively masked by the glitter, noise and abundance of a consumer society. Political participation and civil liberties are gradually surrendered. The corporation state, hiding behind the smokescreen of the public relations industry, the entertainment industry, and the tawdry materialism of a consumer society, devours us from the inside out. It owes no allegiance to us or the nation. It feasts upon our carcass.

The corporate state does not find its expression in a demagogue or charismatic leader. It is defined by the anonymity and facelessness of the corporation. Corporations, who hire attractive spokespeople like Barack Obama, control the uses of science, technology, education and mass communication. They control the messages in movies and television. And, as in “Brave New World,” they use these tools of communication to bolster tyranny.
Our systems of mass communication, as Wolin writes, “block out, eliminate whatever might introduce qualification, ambiguity, or dialogue—anything that might weaken or complicate the holistic force of their creation, to its total impression.”
The result is a monochromatic system of information. Celebrity courtiers—masquerading as journalists, experts and specialists—identify our problems and patiently explain the parameters. All those who argue outside the imposed parameters are dismissed as irrelevant cranks, extremists or members of a radical left. Prescient social critics, from Ralph Nader to Noam Chomsky, are banished. Acceptable opinions have a range of A to B.

The culture, under the tutelage of these corporate courtiers, becomes, as Huxley noted, a world of cheerful conformity, as well as an endless and finally fatal optimism. We busy ourselves buying products that promise to change our lives, make us more beautiful, confident or successful as we are steadily stripped of rights, money and influence. All messages we receive through these systems of communication, whether on the nightly news or talk shows like “Oprah,” promise a brighter, happier tomorrow.
And this, as Wolin points out, is “the same ideology that invites corporate executives to exaggerate profits and conceal losses, but always with a sunny face.”

We have been entranced, as Wolin writes, by “continuous technological advances” that “encourage elaborate fantasies of individual prowess, eternal youthfulness, beauty through surgery, actions measured in nanoseconds: a dream-laden culture of ever-expanding control and possibility, whose denizens are prone to fantasies because the vast majority have imagination but little scientific knowledge.”
Our manufacturing base has been dismantled. Speculators and swindlers have looted the U.S. Treasury and stolen billions from small shareholders who had set aside money for retirement or college. Civil liberties, including habeas corpus and protection from warrantless wiretapping, have been taken away. Basic services, including public education and health care, have been handed over to the corporations to exploit for profit.

The few who raise voices of dissent, who refuse to engage in the corporate happy talk, are derided by the corporate establishment as freaks.

Attitudes and temperament have been cleverly engineered by the corporate state, as with Huxley’s pliant characters in “Brave New World.” The book’s protagonist, Bernard Marx, turns in frustration to his girlfriend Lenina:
“Don’t you wish you were free, Lenina?” he asks.

“I don’t know that you mean. I am free, free to have the most wonderful time. Everybody’s happy nowadays.”
He laughed,
“Yes, ‘Everybody’s happy nowadays.’ We have been giving the children that at five. But wouldn’t you like to be free to be happy in some other way, Lenina? In your own way, for example; not in everybody else’s way.”

“I don’t know what you mean,” she repeated.
The façade is crumbling. And as more and more people realize that they have been used and robbed, we will move swiftly from Huxley’s “Brave New World” to Orwell’s “1984.”

The public, at some point, will have to face some very unpleasant truths. The good-paying jobs are not coming back. The largest deficits in human history mean that we are trapped in a debt peonage system that will be used by the corporate state to eradicate the last vestiges of social protection for citizens, including Social Security.

The state has devolved from a capitalist democracy to neo-feudalism. And when these truths become apparent, anger will replace the corporate-imposed cheerful conformity. The bleakness of our post-industrial pockets, where some 40 million Americans live in a state of poverty and tens of millions in a category called “near poverty” (coupled with the lack of credit to save families from foreclosures, bank repossessions and bankruptcy from medical bills), means that inverted totalitarianism will no longer work.

We increasingly live in Orwell’s Oceania, not Huxley’s The World State.

Osama bin Laden plays the role assumed by Emmanuel Goldstein in “1984.” Goldstein, in the novel, is the public face of terror. His evil machinations and clandestine acts of violence dominate the nightly news. Goldstein’s image appears each day on Oceania’s television screens as part of the nation’s “Two Minutes of Hate” daily ritual. And without the intervention of the state, Goldstein, like bin Laden, will kill you.

All excesses are justified in the titanic fight against evil personified.

The psychological torture of Pvt. Bradley Manning—who has now been imprisoned for seven months without being convicted of any crime—mirrors the breaking of the dissident Winston Smith at the end of “1984.” Manning is being held as a “maximum custody detainee” in the brig at Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia. He spends 23 of every 24 hours alone. He is denied exercise. He cannot have a pillow or sheets for his bed. Army doctors have been plying him with antidepressants. The cruder forms of torture of the Gestapo have been replaced with refined Orwellian techniques, largely developed by government psychologists to turn dissidents like Manning into vegetables.

We break souls as well as bodies. It is more effective. Now we can all be taken to Orwell’s dreaded Room 101 to become compliant and harmless. These “special administrative measures” are regularly imposed on our dissidents, including Syed Fahad Hashmi, who was imprisoned under similar conditions for three years before going to trial.

The techniques have psychologically maimed thousands of detainees in our black sites around the globe. They are the staple form of control in our maximum security prisons where the corporate state makes war on our most politically astute underclass—African-Americans.

It all presages the shift from Huxley to Orwell.
“Never again will you be capable of ordinary human feeling,” Winston Smith’s torturer tells him in “1984.” “Everything will be dead inside you. Never again will you be capable of love, or friendship, or joy of living, or laughter, or curiosity, or courage, or integrity. You will be hollow. We shall squeeze you empty and then we shall fill you with ourselves.”
The noose is tightening. The era of amusement is being replaced by the era of repression.
  • Tens of millions of citizens have had their e-mails and phone records turned over to the government.

  • We are the most monitored and spied-on citizenry in human history.

  • Many of us have our daily routine caught on dozens of security cameras.

  • Our proclivities and habits are recorded on the Internet.

  • Our profiles are electronically generated.

  • Our bodies are patted down at airports and filmed by scanners.

  • And public service announcements, car inspection stickers, and public transportation posters constantly urge us to report suspicious activity. The enemy is everywhere.
Those who do not comply with the dictates of the war on terror, a war which, as Orwell noted, is endless, are brutally silenced. The draconian security measures used to cripple protests at the G-20 gatherings in Pittsburgh and Toronto were wildly disproportionate for the level of street activity. But they sent a clear message—DO NOT TRY THIS.

The FBI’s targeting of antiwar and Palestinian activists, which in late September saw agents raid homes in Minneapolis and Chicago, is a harbinger of what is to come for all who dare defy the state’s official Newspeak. The agents—our Thought Police—seized phones, computers, documents and other personal belongings. Subpoenas to appear before a grand jury have since been served on 26 people. The subpoenas cite federal law prohibiting “providing material support or resources to designated foreign terrorist organizations.”

Terror, even for those who have nothing to do with terror, becomes the blunt instrument used by Big Brother to protect us from ourselves.
“Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating?” Orwell wrote. “It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself.”

BIG BROTHER: The Police State Mentality in the Electronic Age

By Rodrigue Tremblay
January 4, 2011
“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” - Benjamin Franklin (1706 - 1790), American inventor, journalist, printer, diplomat, and statesman (1775)

“Americans used to roar like lions for liberty; now we bleat like sheep for security.” - Norman Vincent Peale (1898 –1993), American Christian preacher and author

"A Party member lives from birth to death under the eye of the Thought Police. Even when he is alone he can never be sure that he is alone... At the apex of the pyramid comes Big Brother. Big Brother is infallible and all-powerful. Every success, every achievement, every victory, every scientific discovery, all knowledge, all wisdom, all happiness, all virtue, are held to issue directly from his leadership and inspiration." - George Orwell (1903-1950) (Eric Arthur Blair) (book: 1984)

“Since information gives power, access to personal files can lead to unreasonable pressures, even blackmail, especially against those with the least resources, people who depend upon public programs, for example. Big Brother isn't a camera. Big Brother is a computer.” - C.J. Howard, political novel “Cybercash”
In 2049, when the 100th anniversary of the publication of George Orwell political novel “1984” will be celebrated, it will be recalled that the immediate post September 11, 2001-period marked the beginning of a gradual decline in personal liberty and freedom—especially in the United States but also elsewhere—and the emergence of a great information-obsessed Leviathan.

Freedom rarely disappears in one fell swoop. Its disappearance is rather the end result of a thousand encroachments.

Pushed to the extreme and without clear democratic oversight, it becomes the mark of a totalitarian state, when authorities feel that they never have enough information on the people. It is because information is power and state bureaucrats and politicians naturally like to be in control—on the one hand, releasing as little information about their own actions through an imposed secrecy; and, on the other, accumulating as much information as possible about the citizens.

And today, modern governments have all the tools to transform their country into a creeping police state, more so now then ever before, in this electronic age. They have access to information technology that previous full-fledged “police state” governments could only have dreamed about.

Nowadays, with super computers and revolutionary new models to gather information and build databases, governments, i.e. bureaucrats and politicians, are in a position as never before to accumulate and correlate tremendous amounts of personal information on their citizens, from public (federal, state and local) as well as from a plethora of private sources. Government intelligence on each and every citizen is thus rendered much easier and, I would add, much more frightening.

Indeed, the potential for abuse is enormous.

In 2002, for example, retired Vice Admiral John Poindexter proposed that the U.S. government create a tracking and monitoring system called "Total Information Awareness," in order for the U.S. government to gather information in a preventive way about individuals from widely varied sources—including tax records, telephone calling records, credit card charges, banking transactions, airline or ship reservations, and various biometric databases—without taking into consideration civil liberties or a citizens' right to privacy, the U.S. Privacy Act of 1974, or without having to request search warrants and without having to give prior notice to the persons involved. The pretext was to allow the government to thwart possible terrorist activity, thus creating an unlimited appetite for information.

Well, there are clear signs that this massive data mining system on individuals is now solidly in place and is in full operation and can be expected to grow over time. George Orwell must be turning in his grave.

First, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s network of fusion centers, launched in 2003, has allowed the government to centralize a host of previously disparate information about Americans and foreigners alike—whether related to personal and business records, drivers licenses, local taxes, local infractions, police records, etc.—through a host of coordinated information-sharing networks. [N.B.: The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was established on November 25, 2002 and is the domestic equivalent of the Department of Defense.]

Secondly, central provisions of the USA Patriot Act, signed into law by President George W. Bush on October 26, 2001, allow the government to operate roving wire taps; search any individual’s business, personal, and even library records upon presentation of a national security letter; and spy on so-called "lone wolf" suspects, i.e., foreign nationals who have no known links to groups designated as terrorist. On this, the current Obama administration, by extending those provisions, is scarcely different than the previous Bush administration.

Thirdly, since passports and tight intelligence screening have been made a requirement for most international travel by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, since January 1, 2008, every individual traveling in and out of the United States has all his or her whereabouts and movements recorded so the government knows at all times his or her address and the places he or she has traveled to and from.

For instance, U.S. Transportation Security Administration's recent decision to use full-body airport X-ray scanners and full body groping at airports is another example where so-called security procedures are applied blindly and indiscriminately. There is more to come, since it has been announced that such invasive intelligence screening is coming to hotels and shopping malls, as well as to trains, buses and ports, etc.

These are some of the main features of the new government apparatus to gather information on people. There are many others. Take for instance the requirement, since 2002, that all American high schools must give Pentagon military recruiters the names and contact information of all their juniors and seniors. Failure to comply on their part may result in the loss of government funding.

The logical next step for the U.S. government would be to follow a recent lead by Italy and outlaw outright the use of cash for most transactions, except for small ones, thus providing the government even more minute information about an individual's income, purchases and displacements.

Nothing will escape the watching eye of the government in the electronic age. People will be filed, photographed, corralled and branded.

Indeed, the way mass government surveillance systems are growing, by year 2020, chances are good that Americans will be living in a “Brave New World”!

—CYBER BIG BROTHER would know it all and it will be watching you.
