Why is Kitty Frightened?

Blackcat-Lilith

According to Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, a psychiatrist and a pioneer in near-death studies, when one suffers a serious loss, as in the death of a friend or spouse, one passes through a series of predictable stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Depending on the scale of the loss and the make-up of the person suffering the loss, these stages may vary in time or might be experienced so quickly they are not easily detected, or they may extend for months or years.

There is a mental condition which has been labeled, somewhat capriciously, as “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”  The label is intended to explain the bizarre behavioral response of Democrats to the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States. While every election has its winner and loser, the result of this particular election has been to pit those who voted for Hillary Clinton as enemies of the Trump voters and vice versa. The country is now approaching the two-year anniversary of the election, and this strained and contentious relationship continues. The Never-Trumpers remain firm in their conviction that President Trump has no redeeming qualities, and the MAGA Trump supporters at times appear to worship him as a savior. Moving away from these emotional responses, there is a small portion of the population who maintain some level of equilibrium. But every American citizen is in the same historical lifeboat. The boat is being dangerously rocked back and forth by the warring factions, ballasted somewhat by a small number of neutral thinkers who suggest, with wary caution, that we allow the American government to sail into the future guided by the principles of the Constitution, the strength of its system of checks and balances, and the common sense of the American people.

Are the Never-Trumpers really deranged in their quest to defeat Donald Trump? Are the Trump supporters oblivious to reality, blinded by their love of their savior?  What is happening here? Will Trump be impeached? If not, will the Never-Trumpers seek vengeance in violence? Will President Trump institute martial law to maintain order under threat of an impending civil war?

Let’s return to the concept of great loss leading to anger, denial, bargaining, depression and ultimately acceptance. First, what was the loss experienced by the Never-Trumpers? On the surface, it would appear to be the elimination of Hillary Clinton as the first female American President. That certainly could be an emotional loss for many voters who embraced this concept and Donald Trump would be the likely target for the anger of many of the Hillary voters. But every election has a winner and a loser. Historically, Americans get over their loss (passing through the stages of grief) and move on to the business of daily life. Americans are pragmatic. They recognize that the country has survived many presidents and that no single election can destroy the continuity of the American way of life.

The last time such raw emotion over an election bubbled to the surface was in 1932 when Franklin Roosevelt won the office. Roosevelt lovers and haters marched, schemed, and blasted each other in newspapers, magazines, and over the new medium of radio, much like the media battle waged today on the internet. FDR had his “fireside chats” just a Trump has his “Tweets.” Like Trump, Roosevelt was worshipped by some and detested by others. The intensity of people’s emotion was fueled by the Great Depression which gripped the country in national suffering. There was great economic and personal loss. People were angry at Roosevelt and the American system. They looked to other countries for solutions. The economic/political systems of Communist Russia and Nazi Germany appeared to be working better than the American way. Citizens argued violently over extreme solutions to their problems: socialism, communism, and fascism were offered up.  People sought a savior. In time, FDR became that man…a benevolent dictator who concocted a confusing bureaucratic stew of social programs which smelled tasty but did not always satisfy Americans hunger for stability, progress, and individualism.

After Roosevelt’s first two terms in office, many problems remained unresolved. Brewing in the background was global political instability. The Great War was fresh in the memory of many Americans. The Great Depression continued. FDR deceptively promised to avoid foreign entanglements and war. He promised economic growth. He puffed up his accomplishments. He won the 1940 election.

Great Depression Americans had moved through the stages of grief and loss: denial of their economic loss in the early 1930s, acting in angry divisiveness in the following years, bargaining away “rugged individualism” for the stability of FDR’s semi-socialistic policies, and finally accepting America’s transition into today’s post-war modern globalist state.  This was a fifteen-year process.

Seventy-three years later, intuitively, Americans anticipate losses greater than the economic deprivation of the Great Depression, the loss of individualism with the American transition toward collectivism, and the loss of innocence in the slaughter that was World War II.

Today, without conscious recognition, Americans face the total annihilation of all remaining innocence, the destruction of ancient traditional societal crutches, and the lifting of their blinders exposing their own massive denial, stupidity, and slave-like mentality. For most Americans it will be the greatest loss they will ever confront. This disturbing sub-conscious view into the future has made Never-Trumpers angry and has made many Trump supporters view him as a savior. Trump is the messenger, the harbinger of change, and possibly the anointed person to move America into a new and more virtuous but tumultuous future.

These are some of the mind-bending losses facing Americans in the coming months.

  • They may lose all or part of their life savings in an economic reset,
  • They may lose any justification for wars and killing done in the name of patriotism,
  • Institutions like the Catholic Church, the Red Cross, and some parts of government may crumble under the weight of pedophilia and corruption revelations,
  • Disturbing revelations will depict many public figures and politicians as pedophiles and Satanists,
  • Arrests, convictions, executions and disappearances of deviate politicians will frighten and anger people,
  • False flags like 9-11, Las Vegas, Oklahoma City, and many others will come to light,
  • The actual world power brokers and puppeteers will be exposed,
  • New World Order plans promoted by previous presidents calling for total domination of humanity for will come to light.

Sub-conscious awareness of these impending events reinforced by propaganda and mind control from the Deep State may be the root cause of what is called Trump Derangement Syndrome creating massive, intense and otherwise inexplicable denial and anger for about half the population. Can President Trump, the “evil Messenger”, become the Great Healer? We shall see.

Who Do You Trust?

bhitler-bush

Who do you trust to provide truthful news? The New York Times, The National Enquirer, your favorite YouTube site, CNN, FOX News, or “none of the above”? Getting a handle on reality has become more challenging now that more possible realities are surfacing. It was so much easier when people relied on the Mockingbird system and its predecessors. Of course, that ease of decision-making sucked us into WWI and WWII, Vietnam, the “War on Terror” and many other negative realities. In five years, we may look back on the present era fondly, at least from the point of view of seeing the “truth”. At the moment, various truths are competing for our attention. One approach is to remain interested and attentive, but detached and skeptical. Filter reality and build your own “truth.” Here is a guest post about “truth” from one of my characters, Emma Neumann from my novel Saving Trump.

“The well-known story of All the President’s Men written by Washington Post reporters Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward chronicled the exploits of these two reporters during the early 1970s Watergate scandal. The book was a classic David and Goliath tale of the bulldog reporters using inside information, in this case from a mysterious source called ‘Deep Throat,’ to investigate and break the big story which would ultimately take down President Richard Nixon.

Let’s fast forward from 1972: Nixon was re-elected President of the United States; Vice-President Agnew resigned (1973); Gerald Ford became Vice-President (1973); Nixon resigned as President after the Watergate scandal (1974); Ford became President (1974); Nelson Rockefeller became Vice-President (1974).  History books covering this era must be action-packed, exciting reads.

Then in 1975-76, the Church Committee investigated United States intelligence activities, and Operation Mockingbird was exposed. Begun in 1953, Mockingbird was a CIA program which used legitimate news sources to influence domestic public opinion. Brand-name reporters working for the New York Herald Tribune, Newsweek, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and others were allegedly subject to control by their CIA Mockingbird masters. Other reporters, not working within the propaganda system, were wire-tapped to determine content. Basically, it was a continuing propaganda campaign running within, and capable of manipulating, the revered ‘Fourth Estate,’ the news media.

More recently we have the story of the leader of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, buying The Washington Post newspaper in 2013 for $250 million. Earlier in the same year, Bezos’ company Amazon received a $600 million contract to provide cloud services to the CIA. The Washington Post has been a constant source of negative information about President Trump, much of which has been obtained from anonymous sources.

Logically, one might assume that the truth once exposed would negate any propaganda efforts by the CIA or anyone else. Of course, Edward Bernays, the father of modern-day public relations or propaganda, said in his 1927 report entitled The Minority Rules that “the most effective propaganda, indeed, is that which enlarges and presents the truth so that an indifferent public will understand it and accept it.” Later in the same article, he says that if propaganda “strays into untruth, the course of events will show it up, and its power will end.”

But, what is the truth?

Some definitions state that a verified fact conforming to reality, and not false (untrue) is the truth.

And what is a lie?

A lie is an idea or statement that is untrue but which is presented as if it was true.

It could be said that all reported news may or may not be true depending on verification of the facts and the honesty of the reporter. Like the quantum physics question: is it a particle or a wave?, determining whether it is the truth or a lie depends on your filter and interpretation.

Hitler had a method of establishing the truth. The Nazi propaganda leaders said that if you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, it will become the truth. This is the problem with public relations and propaganda. It is a process which establishes the truth and then sells it to the public. In effect, it is ‘fake news.’ Because news reporting is not only a fact-reporting machine, it is a fact-filter or lens.  It diminishes or magnifies any event according to the bias of the source. Or in some cases, news is totally or partially fabricated.

Is the CIA still in the business of manipulating domestic and foreign public opinion? Are the Russians involved in manipulating domestic and foreign public opinion?  Is President Trump doing the same? Are the Democrats and Republicans doing the same? The easy answer is, yes. Is all the news presented on television, and in newspapers, magazines, movies, podcasts, videos, websites and word-of-mouth the “truth”? Or is it some form of propaganda? The answer is that it is all propaganda. From instantaneous electronic reporting to time-delayed historical reporting, it is all the same. Let the reader beware.

In the very near future, it will be reported that the Russians co-opted Facebook, Google and other sites that offered advertisements along with their information and news. Most likely their intent was to disrupt the elections. Maybe they were just testing the concept to determine the best way to influence our elections. The Russians will be exposed for buying ads which promoted specific candidates and issues in the 2016 Presidential Election. Possibly Donald Trump was one of those promoted. If so, does that mean he colluded with the Russians? Or does it reflect on the transmitter of the news, Facebook or Google? Are they in some capitalistic, business-like way colluding with the Russians? Or is this all about free-speech for everyone including foreign intelligence operations?

Mockingbird news survives. It will never be killed by the truth because the truth is an imaginary bullet.”

Off With Their Heads

Woodrow Wilson

If we could only fix history by chopping off the heads of statues, wouldn’t life be great? Chop off the stone heads of Wilson and the idiotic European leaders. We could stop World War 1 and save the lives of 19 million people. We could stop the racist President Woodrow Wilson from creating segregated government workplaces. Chop off the stone heads of Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon to avoid millions of deaths in Vietnam and Cambodia. Chop off Hitler’s stone head and stop the unapparelled violence of World War 2. Chop off the stone heads of Margaret Sanger, Rockefeller, and of course Adolph Hitler, all strong pushers of eugenics. We could chop off the stone heads of Ben Franklin, John Hancock, Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington, slave owners all.

Once all the statues were beheaded, we could change the names of thousands of cities and buildings named after people having dubious histories. We could celebrate the elimination of all the horrible events of history once and for all by removing anything written reference in history books to anyone who did anything evil, despicable, or politically incorrect.

Off with their stone heads. However, we must never remove any of the evil living power hungry politicians running our national, state and local governments. Real change requires recognition and prosecution of real-time crimes, not just toppling statues of long-dead historical figures, but real change is impossible because the criminals run the system.

Piglets and Propaganda

Farm 2a

In the Great Depression of the 1930s, President Franklin Roosevelt recognized that farmers were going broke because the cost to produce their farm products exceeded the prices paid by the consumer. One of his solutions enacted was to reduce the supply of farm product, and the intended result would be higher farm prices.

In September 1933 six million piglets were killed on orders of the government of the United States. Some of the meat was fed to hungry poor people. Some of it became fertilizer. According to Henry A. Wallace, then Secretary of Agriculture, this pig killing program successfully raised the price of pork helping the pig farmers and everyone in America by providing a balanced supply of pork to the market. He called it “Agricultural Adjustment.”

FDR’s New Deal programs were established to give the government more control over markets. Killing piglets was a market control device followed by many other government programs, some successful, others not.

In periods of a paradigm shift, like the Great Depression, people and their governments do strange things. We are in such a period of paradigm shift now, and as a result, strangeness abounds. In the 1930s Franklin Roosevelt was in charge. He was praised and attacked for his activities. Today, Donald Trump is the President of the United States. His efforts to deal with the unknown are subject to the same kind of attacks as those experienced by FDR, but unlike FDR he is unable to manipulate and cajole the news media. Today, instead of hearing the squeal of slaughtered piglets, we are witnessing the anguished cries of propagandist news critics skewered by Donald Trump. Strange change marches on.

The Time Travel Twins have time-traveled to the 1930s to save Franklin Roosevelt.
