Out here in the still-free internet, the ether lends itself to utilizing a wide array of digital media as the means to provide source attribution as well as to establish commonality and understanding amongst ourselves. This is, perhaps, the primary reason how internet blogs became the new town square in this millennium. In the old days it was courthouses and town halls, and pubs. Today, we meet in chatrooms, and on pages and threads.
It means if this blogger to were to write on how we’ve all become Sarah Conner in the Jeep riding into the storm at the end of the first Terminator film – a photo of that moment could be posted at the top of the article for emphasis. Or, better yet, a video of that scene could be hyper-linked into the text.
Truly, it is the best of times and the worst of times.
Undoubtedly, a storm is coming and even worse than that: A perfect storm. Of course that phrase is more than a mere idiom or a movie starring George Clooney and Mark Walberg. Merriam-Webster defines a “perfect storm”as:
“a critical or disastrous situation created by a powerful concurrence of factors”.
Or, stated with more clarity, the forthcoming waves of catastrophes will be the direct result of circumstances brought on by simultaneously devastating forces greater than any individual could fully comprehend.
Therefore, for purposes of easy illustration, let’s do consider the Perfect Storm of 1991. It was also called the Halloween Nor’easter of 1991, and the “No-Name Storm”; and was, in fact, the event which inspired the aforementioned Clooney-Walberg film .
Bob Case, a NOAA National Weather Service meteorologist described the terrible tempest as follows:
It was an unprecedented set of circumstances. A strong disturbance associated with a cold front moved along the U.S.- Canadian border on October 27 and passed through New England pretty much without incident. At the same time, a huge high pressure system was forecast to build over southeast Canada. When a low pressure system along the front moved into the Maritimes southeast of Nova Scotia, it began to intensify due to the cold dry air introduced from the north. These circumstances alone, could have created a strong storm. But then, like throwing gasoline on a fire, a dying hurricane Grace delivered immeasurable tropical energy to create the perfect storm.
That was the matter-of-fact rendering by an expert. And here is the actual event shown from a distant perspective and utilizing another medium:
12-Second Time-Lapse of the Perfect Storm
If a picture is worth a thousand words and being there is worth a thousand pictures, then, certainly, there can be no doubt the crew of the Andrea Gail, who were lost at sea during that particular perfect storm, would have much preferred a sterile summary of the event and its view from space.
With that in mind, and in continuing with the perfect storm as a metaphor, one thing is guaranteed: It is always better to find safe harbor and live to set sail another day than to drown beneath waves of cataclysmic confluences.
Indeed. It would be very dangerous to underestimate the shitstorm that is about to commence in the United States and around the world. Furthermore, as seen in the time-lapsed video above, perfect storms contain many elements working in conjunction like whirling dervishes dancing with devils; or gravity synchronously siphoning disparate fluids down a drain.
Yes, dear reader, we’re going down. The U.S. has been torn into pieces, her institutions laid waste and Trump’s economic policies will no doubt be blamed in the aftermath of a full-blown economic collapse. To be sure, the final straw will appear when any number of black swans deliver the tiniest of pin pricks to the global debt bubble.
So where does one duck? Where does one hide? Or, at the very least, how do we mitigate the overall effects and consequences of the coming perfect storm for ourselves and those whom we hold dear?
For reasons becoming more obvious every day, the wandering mind of this blogger continuously reverts back to an excellent article posted at the end of last month, entitled: “It’s Not Trump Derangement Syndrome”:
The Democrats don’t believe in our two-party system anymore. They utterly reject American civic norms of treating the president with a modicum of respect and cooperation. They don’t want to alternate presidential power every four or eight years. They think theirs is the only party that deserves to be elected.
…Naked political power is the driving force behind our culture wars, and behind the weird war on President Trump. It has little to do with his specific policies, let alone his tweets and his pugnacious personality, except that Trump’s counterpunching and toughness have allowed him to survive. John McCain and Mitt Romney didn’t drive them crazy because they caved without a fight. Trump drives Democrats crazy because he won, and because he won’t give in or give up.
…It’s not derangement, it’s war.
Of particular note in the above article was the correlation between the Political Left’s targeting of Trump and Friedrich Nietzsche’s “Will to Power”. It was something I also wrote about during the Kavanaugh hearings in an article entitled “Dirty Deeds Done: The People of the Slough”:
The value systems of conservative folks are very different than those of The People of the Slough. This is why words like “liberty” and “equality” hold separate meanings for each. In the example of the former, these concepts are the result of natural law. In the latter, they derive more from Friedrich Nietzsche’s “Will to Power”; an idea for which the German philosopher also claimed was demonstrated in Darwinism as the “Will to Survive”.
Although some academics believe survival instinct cannot be conflated with Darwin’s biologically-based “natural selection”, the comparison remains fascinating nevertheless. From an ideological, or even psychological, perspective – the desire to survive can add entirely new dimensions to the consequences of political power and its inherently fictitious exculpation: “The ends justify the means”.
Since the election of Trump, it has been breathtaking to witness the collapse of the Deep State’s curtain thus revealing the wizards in the swamp. Even now, it is stunning to see how the likes of Hillary Clinton, James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, et al, all lie so expertly & naturally. Even if they are only the mid-level management serving the whims of the vampires at the top of the pyramid, they have been fully exposed as unctuously selling their snake oil and without any conscience whatsoever.
Given our history since the rise of the surveillance state, what do you think the chances of these wizards NOT getting away with their crimes might be?
I would say slim to none.
I hope I’m wrong, but all this will very likely fizzle in the same manner as the first OIG report and Trump’s dreams of a red wave for the GOP holding the House last fall. Of course, there will be headlines and lots of drama, and maybe a few low-hanging fruit making plea deals – but in the end, much ado about nothing.
In the meantime, however, the real threat will come from the zombies at the bottom of the food chain. Yes, they are actual zombies currently and becoming more so on a daily basis.
And their deception goes far beyond the Russia Hustle.
For example, upon recommendation of someone close to me, I watched Dr. Brené Brown’s “Call to Courage” pep talk on Netflix. She’s a social researcher and author presenting as a combination comedienne and self-help guru, and appears to have cornered the market on “vulnerability” as it relates to courage.
Brown was extremely likeable, even charismatic, and I watched for about an hour as she made her audience laugh and cry in a Tony Robbins meets Oprah Winfrey sort of way. Evidently, she had a TED talk (about vulnerability) that went viral. She also indicated she had addressed business leaders around the country, including the Titans of Silicon Valley.
At the very beginning, Brown joked she did not want to have a “white man” on the cover of her latest book and I heard her use the word “privilege” at least once. Then, right around the 58 minute mark, she said:
…and there are so many important movements going on right now, ones that I really hope change the world…. Black Lives Matter, MeToo, Times Up…
There it was. Just like clockwork.
In the end, she’s just another social justice priestess sermonizing on the new religion; shilling selective “tolerance” and, by default, very likely thrilled Alex Jones and James Woods have been banned from Facebook and Twitter.
The point is this: lies have become truth in the new age; and the average ordinary everyday sleepy sheeple never stood a chance – perhaps, primarily, because they want to believe so badly in the new faith. Somewhere along the way, deceiving these fools became like stealing pieces of cake from babies.
They had a republic and couldn’t keep it because they despised their birthright. In any event, they are only one element of the perfect storm.
Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three. They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”
He said to the crowd: “When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, ‘It’s going to rain,’ and it does. And when the south wind blows, you say, ‘It’s going to be hot,’ and it is. Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky. How is it that you don’t know how to interpret this present time?
– Luke 12:51-56
Dmitry Orlov is a computer engineer born in Lenigrad and has written extensively regarding his eye-witness account of the collapse of the Soviet Union. In his writings, he has identified the Five Stages of [Societal] Collapse as follows:
Stage 1: Financial Collapse
Stage 2: Commercial Collapse
Stage 3: Political Collapse
Stage 4: Social Collapse
Stage 5: Cultural Collapse
Orlov furthermore states that each stage of collapse involves a “loss of faith, or trust”, in “key components of the status quo” and that, although “physical, measurable effects may be delayed”, the “psychological shifts are swift”.
In referencing America directly, Orlov envisioned the first stage of collapse (Financial) in this way:
The financial realm can be seen as a complex system of fences: your bank account is fenced off from my bank account. This arrangement allows you and me to not worry too much about each other, provided each of us has enough to live on. Though this is largely a fiction, we can fancy ourselves to be independent economic players on a level playing field. But once these conceptual fences become irrelevant, because there is nothing behind them, we become each others’ burden, in an immediate sort of way, that would come as a shock to most people. The indignity of such physical interdependence would be psychologically devastating to many people, raising the human toll from financial collapse beyond what you’d expect from a problem that really only exists on paper. This is going to be particularly hard for a nation brought up on the myth of rugged individualism.
