Well, we're not as smart as we thought we were... TPTB can still control our minds

I saw something earlier today that got me thinking..... Maybe a little bit too much. We've all gone hook line and sinker, playing the game.

Does anyone remember before the election here in the states?

We were digging into conspiracies, ie., planetary visitors, Monsanto, Vaccines, space travel, names of people involved in shadow government dealings, experiments on citizens, just to name a few.

We KNEW that our votes didn't matter, that there was a shadow government pulling the strings behind the scenes. Black projects, secret sites, hidden monies, we knew what our government was doing, what it was capable of. More importantly, we all had a unanimous agreement that the PTB were falling apart - they were doing things in plain view of everyone to see, they were losing their control over the masses..... People were no longer blindly following without question, people were no longer easily deceived by the BS stories that made headlines, the half truths and cheap excuses made to justify political, government and military actions.

What has happened with and since the election? WE HAVE ALL BEEN REPROGRAMMED! (ew, I hate that I typed that, but it was necessary)

People are glued to the news outlets for the latest developing stories. People have newfound faith in the government and judicial systems that people had all but turned a cold shoulder to. All of a sudden everybody's vote counts, we need to have faith in the system, Republican this, Democrat that, investigations, laws, testimonies, more elections, all sorts of issues whereas we would once dissect and find the true meaning and purpose behind the motivations of such events, we now only skim the surface and leave it at : "we need a law", or "judges, courts, blah blah blah", almost always leading back to the government in one way or another for direction and safeguarding.

The Powers That Be have successfully regained control of the populations and masses that they had almost lost their grip on. They saw their power and influence was slipping, so they produced the greatest Play Production in our current history - All involving Corruption, Russians, Communists, Socialists, Threat of War from North Korea, Sanctions, Investigations, Racism, and essentially dividing everyone imaginable. It's even prevalent on this website, where you can see the change in threads being written having changed dramatically just before, during, and especially now, after the presidential election.

Is it really surprising that at the (seemingly) end of the rain of BS from the PTB, all of a sudden we have the most intense, divisive, crap-show of an election with some of the most dangerous people anyone could think of? I say it's no coincidence, it was exactly what was needed to perpetuate the line and manner of control being imposed on the population.

We need to keep our heads up, our eyes and ears open, and be prepared for everything and anything. There is no telling what's in store for us that no one is anticipating, having been so distracted with the nonsensical International Political Performance that has been on display for the last 2 years. I am almost positive at this point, that as soon as "They" are convinced we are all reprogrammed to trust in government and authoritative decisions, to march in a single file line to whatever predetermined destination is in front of us, the dust will settle and little will come out of the current political climate.

Hopefully I'm not the only one that sees this. I know many have noticed the decline in questions being asked and theories being discussed at least here, but maybe (hopefully) after reading this and putting it into a different perspective, it will make a little more sense as to what's going on and why.

Happy New Years, guys. Remember, Question everything. Trust very few. Above all, Deny Ignorance....... Even if the ignorance is our own doing.

This site jumped the shark during the lead-up to the 2012 election.

It's been more political than conspiracy ever since.

This mirrors a lot of thoughts I've had lately. One of the worst things to come from this past election was what it's done to conspiracy theorists.

Those of the right wing variety have gone from questioning the establishment to fighting tooth and nail for it. Believing anything an anonymous poster on 4chan spoon feeds them, as long as it gives some hope for this administration not being as bad as it actually is.

The only conspiracies people are focusing on are the ones they're being told to focus on. That in itself should be enough to give someone pause, but partisan hate seems to have even drowned that out.

See? It rears it's ugly head again in record time - We can't even postulate and discuss a topic regarding manipulation of thought and action towards political righteousness without falling into the pattern itself.

They have done a very good job, when even mentioning something faintly of political affiliation/lack thereof, or even implying such, however indirectly, causes tensions

Is not the president and the political party that holds the most seats in government "the establishment"?


Not necessarily:


The late political journalist Henry Fairlie took credit for coining the term in a 1968 New Yorker article in which he pointed back to a Sept. 23, 1955, Spectator article he wrote that defined the political “Establishment” as both the centers of “official power” and “the whole matrix of official and social relations within which power is exercised.”
...
As we’ve seen this campaign cycle, the Establishment is not a monolith, but cleaved into at least two opposed organizations, the Democratic Establishment and the Republican Establishment. At least, it wears those faces in public. Behind the scenes, it can sneakily fuse back together. In a brilliant 1961 essay that appeared in the American Scholar, Richard H. Rovere cited no less an authority on the Establishment than John Kenneth Galbraith to note that the “perfect Establishment figure … would be the Republican called to service in a Democratic administration.”
emphases mine

Politico

It also includes all the unelected bureaucrats, lobbyists, corporate-government liaisons, CEOs, media companies and various assorted hangers on.

TPTB, deep state, MIC, shadow government are all terms used to describe the same group.

Wish I could give you two stars for that. People seem to think when you talk about one side, it automatically makes you the other side.

OP is dead right about being programmed...

We have all been programmed from birth to deny reality.


Modern Western culture is based on denying objective truth and erecting a false reality in its place. The New World Order is dedicated to replacing Truth with a solipsism created by the same people who create money from nothing and charge interest.

"We have already contrived to possess of the minds of the goy communities...[they are] looking through the spectacles we are setting astride their noses." (Protocols of Zion, 12)

Modern society is based on a solipsism created by Illuminati (Cabalist) Jewish bankers and their Masonic minions. The word "solipsism" means a self-created reality that has little or no connection with Truth. Instead of being dedicated to Truth, humanity has been hijacked by the bankers. The "New World Order" is a solipsism that stymies and enslaves mankind while increasing the bankers' power and wealth. We are being drawn into a solipsism that inverts good and evil; truth and lies. We are being inducted into a satanic cult.

Denying Reality

What if you woke up tomorrow and everything you had thought was true was a deception? A deception formed by people that stood to profit from your ignorance. Not just on one small area but every facet of your existence. Would you want to know? Or, would you be content with the life you had before you discovered the truth? Could you close your eyes and act as if nothing ever happened?

What if everything you believed was a lie?

“The matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on the television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. IT IS THE WORLD THAT HAS BEEN PULLED OVER YOUR EYES TO BLIND YOU FROM THE TRUTH. Morpheus – “The Matrix.”

In the entire history of man, no one has ever been brainwashed and realized, or believed, that he had been brainwashed. Those who have been brainwashed will usually passionately defend their manipulators, claiming they have simply been "shown the light" . . . or have been transformed in miraculous ways.

I agree with a lot of what you wrote, but I've got to say that trust in the government is at an all time low, not on a rise again. I mean, not even the president trusts the government anymore... he just tweeted saying the DOJ is working against him. So that doesn't mesh with what you are saying.

As for the people? Well, sorry for using the same old tired left/right paradigm, but I'd say that people on the left may have some increased trust for parts of the government through Mueller, the courts overturning some of Trump's decisions, etc. But on the other hand they have really low trust for Trump himself and his officials, and in general there's a lot of suspicion and uncertainty, I'd say their trust has decreased overall. And people on the right have even less trust, for a million reasons that have been discussed here lately. To be fair some of them have really high trust in Trump, but he's not the whole government. Just look at how some of Trumps biggest supporters here are suspicious of even his own appointments, saying they're plants.

I feel kind of guilty though, I should make some new paranormal or conspiracy content and not just comment on political threads.

Absolutely 100% correct...



Past presidents of the United States and other high profile political leaders have repeatedly issued warnings over the last 214 years that the U.S. government is under the control of an “invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.”

According to six of our former presidents, one vice-president, and a myriad of other high profile political leaders, an invisible government that is “incredibly evil in intent” has been in control of the U.S. government “ever since the days of Andrew Jackson” (since at least 1836). They “virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties… It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.”

As a result, “we have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized world—no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.”

“A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many and various powerful interests, combined in one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in banks.” – John C. Calhoun, Vice President (1825-1832)

From Washington to JFK: Former Presidents Warn About Illuminati

“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.”— Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States

"Governments do not govern, but merely control the machinery of government, being themselves controlled by the hidden hand." ~ Benjamin Disraeli; Prime Minister of England

"Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the fields of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it." ~ Woodrow Wilson

“It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am. The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavoured to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of separation).” ~ George Washington

And that is Trump now, no matter how much he shakes his left hand around so you don't look at what the right is doing.

If Hillary had won and was doing stupid things, I'd be right here talking about her in the same way. Especially if no one on her side was questioning any of it. Regardless of who is in power, we should all question everything, all the time.

I believe Trump to be part of the same establishment as Hillary and Obama. To believe he isn't is to overlook all of the connections to it throughout his life.

I can revamp that statement into not so much an issue of trust, but almost a twisted sort of reliance? People clamoring for protections from everything including themselves in most instances, with the overwhelming need for a false sense of security and protection coming at the cost of their own rights.

I could also retranslate that into looking to the government for the "End All" answer to everything...... Which is something that people steered clear of as much as possible, previously.

Yeah, my exact thoughts as well. This whole political charade going on right now, including the media's coverage of it, is a psyop being used to reprogram us to do their bidding. It's working remarkably well. This whole "Trump vs. the media" schtick is nothing but smoke and mirrors to make some people feel like they're part of some revolution. The revolution is being led by TPTB and their psyop campaign, both sides are caught up in it. Both sides are radicalizing the other by design, the more each side is radicalized the more divided we become.

That's right, bring up the left/right paradigm and politics in a thread that was aimed at making eveyone take a step back from that BS.

the general theory about ATS's turn toward political banter, is it is all shills for the deep state trying their damnedest to slander the first pres not under their control.

before the election the shills were content to disinform in the usual threads, but their priorities changed when they unexpectedly failed to install another puppet (hillary) their marching orders turned from the usual disinformation campaigns to all in focus on anything anti trump.

Probably so, yet it is glaringly obvious the he wasn't supposed to win. For me that's a baby step in the right direction. The full-blast furnace he has been under since November tells me the establishment's easy win plan for Hillary backfired and now they are trying to reign in their "useful idiot". Let 'em try, hopefully we can send them another in 7 years. I don't care what party he/she comes from either.
