The Black Magic of Mental Warfare: A Retrospective on Michael Aquino's "From PSYOP To MindWar"
The late Lt. Colonel Michael Aquino led a bipolar and deeply controversial career. Known both as an Army veteran with decades of work in the psychological operations (PSYOP) community and as a high profile occultist and professed Satanist, Aquino has justifiably received his fair share of suspicion from the conspiracy theory world. As an occultist, he was known for founding the Temple of Set, a radical offshoot of Anton Lavey's Church of Satan. The introduction to Aquino's autobiography Ghost Rides immodestly describes him as “arguably the greatest Black Magician of his generation.” (Intro, p15) Aquino first became interested in Satanism while serving in Vietnam, during which time he corresponded with Anton Lavey, founder of the Church of Satan. He became something of a protege to Lavey, rising through the ranks of the cult between 1969 and 1975. Eventually, dissatisfied with the non-literal, non-theistic Satanism of Lavey, Aquino broke ranks and founded the Temple of Set. A 1998 Washington Post profile on the Church of Satan describes Aquino's role as a schismatic: As the years passed, Aquino grew more and more frustrated by LaVey's policies. In Aquino's eyes, LaVey had always refused to believe in Satan as an actual supernatural being. Now, the high priest was selling priesthoods in the church for cold cash. This undermined the true purpose of Satanism, Aquino thought, and reinforced the reputation of the church as a farcical sideshow. In 1975, Aquino left with many church members and priests (some say 28, he claims 100) to form the Temple of Set, a tightly organized religion that revolved around an Egyptian deity on whom the Hebraic Satan supposedly was based. According to his CV (published on his website Xeper.org) Aquino's other occult affiliations included such obscure sects as the Order of the Trapezoid, the Rune-Gild, the Esoteric Order of Dagon (a bizarre cult modeled on the horror mythology of sci-fi author H.P. Lovecraft), and the Ancient and Mystical Order Rosae Crucis. Aquino's sordid reputation has been further darkened by allegations of pedophilia associated with the Satanic Ritual Abuse scandal of the late 80s and 90s (this was discussed at some length in the 2020 documentary Out of Shadows). But his career was not strictly limited to the black arts. A decorated Vietnam vet, Aquino boasted an extensive resume in psychological operations both during and after the war. Aquino's best known non-occult article, From PSYOP to MindWar: The Psychology of Victory was commissioned in 1980 at the request of Colonel Paul Vallely, at the time commander of the 7th PSYOP group. (Vallely is best known today as a Fox News military analyst and a conservative conspiracy theorist who, among other things, endorsed so-called “birther” theories about Barack Obama, and has defended the QAnon movement as a “whitehat” psychological operation. The precise relationship between the politics of Aquino and Vallely is difficult to determine.) Aquino's article proposed a supercharged revision of PSYOP doctrine in the wake of post-Vietnam disillusionment in the PSYOP community. Although not officially intended for publication, Aquino states that MindWar was circulated as a “talking paper” among “governmental offices, agencies, commands, and publications involved or interested in PSYOP” (p2) during the 1980s – apparently to lively response. We read through MindWar, and found it worth discussing. Its circulation among unspecified government agencies, and the broader context of Aquino's occupational “double life” raise many points of concern which ramify far beyond the idiosyncrasies of a Vietnam vet self-styled as a black magician. On the surface, the article in itself is not particularly scandalous, as its primary focus is ostensibly psychological warfare against hostile foreign powers. But the author is sneaky (which should be no surprise, considering his infernal patronage), and the devil is in the details. Aquino's best act of black magic might indeed be the impossible rhetorical backflips by which he simultaneously pays lip service to the illegality of employing PSYOP against the American populace, while at the same time using innuendo and semantics to suggest that MindWar (which, according to the author, is not propaganda because it always tells the truth!) must in fact target the American populace as well as foreign adversaries. In the next section, we break down points of interest in Aquino's article. From PSYOP to MindWar: A Breakdown From PSYOP to MindWar opens with a reflection on the then-nascent field of psychotronics, particularly “intelligence and operational employment of ESP.” (p4) Aquino calls such research “decidedly provocative,” but states that conventional communication technologies are adequate to the task of “map[ping] the minds of neutral and enemy individuals and then to change them in accordance with U.S. national interests.” (p4) Aquino elaborates: [PSYOP] must strengthen our national will to victory and it must attack and ultimately destroy that of our enemy. It both causes and is affected by physical combat, but it is a type of war which is fought on a far more subtle basis as well - in the minds of the national populations involved. So let us begin with a simple name change. We shall rid ourselves of the self-conscious, almost "embarrassed" concept of "psychological operations". In its place we shall create Mind War. The term is harsh and fear-inspiring, and so it should be: It is a term of attack and victory - not one of the rationalization and coaxing and conciliation. The enemy may be offended by it; that is quite all right as long as he is defeated by it. A definition is offered: MindWar is the deliberate, aggressive convincing of all participants in a war that we will win that war. (p4-5) Reflecting at length on the failure of Vietnam War era PSYOPs at home and abroad (he asks, elsewhere: “Was the United States defeated in the jungles of Vietnam, or was it defeated in the streets of American cities?” [p7]), Aquino lands on a disturbing point. He writes: Like the sword Excalibur, we have but to reach out and seize this tool; and it can transform the world for us if we have the courage and the integrity to enhance civilization with it. If we do not accept Excalibur, then we relinquish our ability to inspire foreign cultures with our morality. If they then desire moralities unsatisfactory to us, we have no choice but to fight them on a more brutish level. MindWar must target all participants if it is to be effective. It must not only weaken the enemy; it must strengthen the United States. It strengthens the United States by denying enemy propaganda access to our people, and by explaining and emphasizing to our people the rationale for our national interest in a specific war.Under existing United States law, PSYOP units may not target American citizens. That prohibition is based upon the presumption that "propaganda" is necessarily a lie or at least a misleading half-truth, and that the government has no right to lie to the people. The Propaganda Ministry of Goebbels must not be a part of the American way of life.Quite right, and so it must be axiomatic of MindWar that it always speaks the truth. Its power lies in its ability to focus recipients' attention on the truth of the future as well as that of the present. MindWar thus involves the stated promise of the truth that the United States has resolved to make real if it is not already so. To this end MindWar must be strategic in emphasis, with tactical applications playing a reinforcing, supplementary role. In its strategic context, MindWar must reach out to friends, enemies, and neutrals alike across the globe - neither through primitive "battlefield" leaflets and loudspeakers of PSYOP nor through the weak, imprecise, and narrow effort of psychotronics - but through the media possessed by the United States which have the capabilities to reach virtually all people on the face of the Earth. These media are, of course, the electronic media. (p7) This rebranding of PSYOP as MindWar is a sloppy and rather transparent attempt to bypass the patent illegality of using PSYOPS on the home front. This, in fact, is the main thrust of Aquino's whole argument. It becomes crystal clear that Aquino's rebranding initiative for psychological operations was ultimately aimed at finding a technical workaround to existing prohibitions against PSYOPing the American people. Moreover, having only just condemned the domestic use of Nazi-style propaganda, Aquino claims that MindWar can be waged without deception, citing the orations of Kennedy and Hitler as glowing examples (notably, Aquino was well known for his strong interest in Nazi occultism – see Out of Shadows): Unlike PSYOP, MindWar has nothing to do with deception or even with "selected" and therefore misleading - truth. Rather it states a whole truth that, if it does not now exist, will be forced into existence by the will of the United States. The examples of Kennedy's ultimatum to Khrushchev during the Cuban Missile Crisis and Hitler's stance at Munich might be cited. A MindWar message does not have to fit conditions of abstract credibility as do PSYOP themes; its source makes it credible. (p8) Aquino's logic is admittedly baffling. How, precisely, does MindWar make any pretense to truth, when the very metric of said truth is based on nothing but an appeal to the dubious authority of the US government to bring about conditions that do not yet exist? If the argument of MindWar is rather obfuscated, a condensed version of its basic structure runs something like this (my words, not Aquino's): Vietnam represented a failure of traditional “leaflet and loudspeaker” PSYOPs at home and abroad. Therefore, the PSYOP community must adopt new technologies and a more comprehensive ideology. However, the use of PSYOPs on the American people is illegal – but only because of the false notion that all propaganda is deceptive! Thus, PSYOP needs a makeover. Enter MindWar, which allegedly only tells the truth. As such, it eludes existing prohibitions on propagandizing American citizens. But what is truth? Truth is what we say it is. And if present conditions do not reflect said “truth,” we'll bring it about soon enough. Just take our word for it. You can trust us. The conclusion of MindWar finally circles back to the question of psychotronics. Recall that Aquino opens his article with an ambivalent attitude toward so-called parapsychological techniques as ESP, claiming that existing technologies are more effective than supernatural forces for the purposes of psychological warfare. In this vein, he goes on to claim that natural environmental phenomena such as invisible electromagnetic wavelengths can be manipulated, in conjunction with media broadcasts, to exploit vulnerabilities in the human psyche, and thereby can make targets more susceptible to MindWar. For the mind to believe in its own decisions, it must feel that it made those decisions without coercion. Coercive measures used by the operative, consequently, must not be detectable by ordinary means. There is no need to resort to mind-weakening drugs such as those explored by the CIA; in fact the exposure of a single such method would do unacceptable damage to MindWar' s reputation for truth. Existing PSYOP identifies purely-sociological factors which suggest appropriate idioms for messages. Doctrine in this area is highly developed, and the task is basically one of assembling and maintaining individuals and teams with enough expertise and experience to apply the doctrine effectively. This, however, is only the sociological dimension of target receptiveness measures. There are some purely natural conditions under which minds may become more or less receptive to ideas, and MindWar should take full advantage of such phenomena as atmospheric electromagnetic activity, air ionization, and extremely low frequency waves. (p9-10) In footnotes 19-21 (p10), Aquino elaborates on the applications for weaponizing such invisible frequencies in the context of MindWar. [Footnote 19] Atmospheric electromagnetic (EM) activity: The Human body communicates internally by EM and electrochemical impulses. The EM field displayed in Kirlian photographs, the effectiveness of acupuncture, and the body's physical responses to various types of EM radiation (X-rays, infrared radiation, visible light spectra, etc.) are all examples of human sensitivity to EM forces and fields. Atmospheric EM activity is regularly altered by such phenomena as sunspot eruptions and gravitational stresses which distort the Earth's magnetic field. Under varying external EM conditions, humans are more or less disposed to the consideration of new ideas. MindWar should be timed accordingly. Per Dr. LJ. Ravitz: Electromagnetic field constructs add fuel to the assumption unifying living matter harmoniously with the operations of nature, the expression of an electromagnetic field no less than non-living systems; and that as points on spectrums, these two entities may at last take their positions in the organization of the universe in a way both explicable and rational ... A tenable theory has been provided for emergence of the nervous system, developing not from functional demands, but instead deriving as a result of dynamic forces imposed on cell groups by the total field pattern. Living matter has a definition of state based on relativity field physics, through which it has been possible to detect a measurable property of total state functions. (Ravitz, StateFunction, Including Hypnotic States" in Journal of American Society of Psychosomatic Dentistry and Medicine, Vol. 17, No. 4, 1970.) [Footnote 20] Ionization of the air: An abundance of negative condensation nuclei ("air ions") in ingested air enhances alertness and exhilaration, while an excess of positive ions enhances drowsiness and depression. Calculation of the ionic balance of a target audience's atmospheric environment will be correspondingly useful. Again this is a naturally-occurring condition - caused by such varying agents as solar ultraviolet light, lightning, and rapidly-moving water - rather than one which must be artificially created. (Detonation of nuclear weapons, however, will alter atmospheric ionization levels.) Cf. Soyke, Fred and Edmonds, Alan, The Ion Effect. New York: E.P. Dutton, 1977. [Footnote 21] Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) waves: ELF waves up to 100 Hz are once more naturally occurring, but they can also be produced artificially (such as for the Navy's Project Sanguine for submarine communication). ELF-waves are not normally noticed by the unaided senses, yet their resonant effect upon the human body has been connected to both physiological disorders and emotional distortion. Infrasound vibration (up to 20 Hz) can subliminally influence brain activity to align itself to delta, theta, alpha, or beta wave patterns, inclining an audience toward everything from alertness to passivity. Infrasound could be used tactically, as ELF-waves endure for great distances; and it could be used in conjunction with media broadcasts as well. See Playfair, Guy L. and Hill, Scott, The Cycles of Heaven. New York: St. Martin's Press, 1978, pages 130-140. Conclusion Although Michael Aquino is deceased, and MindWar is more than forty years out of date, his writings and career are illustrative of two broader areas of concern: first, the infiltration of military and intelligence agencies by subversive occult elements; and second, a crossbleed of military PSYOP practices into state-sponsored media messaging toward US civilians. If Aquino's claims about the wide inter-agency circulation of his article at the time of its publication are truthful, there is ample reason to suspect that MindWar is not isolated to foreign conflicts, but has disturbing domestic applications even during peacetime. Furthermore, if there was any doubt that the idea of MindWar is directly inspired by occultism, consider that according to his own website, MindWar was the first installation in a trilogy of works dealing with occult topics (see also MindStar and FindFar). Finally, reflection on the extensive propaganda campaigns associated with the COVID crisis, 2020 election, and Russia-Ukraine War (to name the most prominent examples in recent memory) only indicates that the American people are being targeted by MindWar in an ongoing fashion.
The Club Of Rome's Plan For Mass Human Depopulation
IN APRIL 1968, a group of thirty individuals from ten countries gathered in Rome to discuss "the present and future predicament of man." Out of this meeting grew The Club of Rome, an informal organization of intellectuals and business leaders whose goal is "a critical discussion of pressing global issues." In 1972 the Club of Rome published the report The Limits to Growth which warned that the then-current trends of population growth and economic expansion were unsustainable and would ultimately result in a societal collapse unless measures were taken to limit population growth and economic expansion. The report argued that the world population, if allowed to continue growing unchecked, would eventually collapse due to a combination of land and food shortages, depleted natural resources, and pollution. The report suggested that in order to avoid an inevitable and uncontrolled population collapse, humanity should quickly work towards achieving an "equilibrium state." This "equilibrium state" would be the point at which the birth rate equals the death rate and the capital investment rate equals the capital depreciation rate. The report states that "An equilibrium state would not be free of pressures, since no society can be free of pressures. Equilibrium would require trading certain human freedoms, such as producing unlimited numbers of children or consuming uncontrolled amounts of resources." It is clear that the purpose of the report was not simply to warn of a potential calamity if existing trends continued unchecked, but also to push an agenda of population control. The report states that "deliberately limiting growth would be difficult, but not impossible. The way to proceed is clear, and the necessary steps, although they are new ones for human society, are well within human capabilities." One of the co-authors of "The Limits to Growth" report was Dennis Meadows. In an interview published in 2016 by We Love Earth, Dennis stated "The planet can support something like a billion people. Maybe 2 billion, depending on how much liberty and how much material consumption you want to have. If you want more liberty and more consumption, you have to have fewer people. And conversely, you can have more people, I mean we can even have 8 or 9 billion, probably, if we have a very strong dictatorship . . . But we want to have freedom . . . so we're going to have a billion people. And we are now at 7, so we have to get back down. I hope that this can be slow, relatively slow, and that it can be done in a way which is relatively equal, so that people share the experience and we don't have a few rich trying to force everyone else to deal with it . . . These are pretty pessimistic hopes, but that's what lies ahead." Today the United Nations is pushing an agenda that would be applauded by the authors of The Limits to Growth. In 2015, the United Nations general assembly adopted the "2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development." The agenda provides a "blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future." Agenda 2030 outlines a blueprint for world socialism, stating that "we are embarking on a collective journey" to build "a world free of poverty, hunger, disease and want." At the heart of Agenda 2030 are the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs). These SDGs, if implemented successfully, can only result in the depopulation of humanity. The goals include: reducing consumption, limiting and eventually ending the use of fossil fuels (the lifeblood of human civilization today), promoting LGBTI sexual orientations (these people most likely will not or cannot have children of their own, an implicit form of birth control), and establishing a world socialist state (socialism has killed more people over the last 100 years than all of the major wars in the same time span). The United Nations and associated organizations are proceeding full steam ahead with the implementation of this agenda. Powerful entities are working around the clock to eliminate the majority of the world's population. Bill Gates is funding technology to block out the sun, the World Economic Forum is encouraging people to eat bugs instead of meat, and despite the fact that the COVID-19 lockdowns killed millions of people across the globe, the imposition of climate lockdowns appears to be on the horizon. If the warning of Dennis Meadows is correct, then statistically speaking, you will most likely be a victim of depopulation. The time is now to peacefully and forcefully oppose this agenda before it is too late.
Yuval Noah Harari Exposed! Globalist Mastermind or Intellectual Air Bag?
In the popular imagination, the World Economic Forum is almost synonymous with Klaus Schwab, the bespectacled, German-accented, vaguely Sith Lord-esque figure who presides over the annual conference of globalist shills and social engineers at Davos. Every year, the Davos forum generates a new set of ominous soundbites forecasting a bleak collectivist future governed by platitudes about eating bugs, owning nothing, and being happy. You know the drill, provided you've been paying attention. If you've been keeping an eye of scrutiny on Davos, you've also likely encountered the public intellectual and amateur futurist Yuval Noah Harari. A new darling of the PR and marketing arm of Globalism Inc., this sleight, balding professor of history at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem has become a fixture in meetings of the elite cartel. Harari most recently received headlines for provocative comments on AI and the future of religion made in May 2023. Likening AI to the “superhuman intelligence” behind world religions, Harari remarked: “In a few years, there might be religions that are actually correct. Just think about a religion whose holy book is written by an AI. That could be a reality in a few years.” (Side note: If the gibberish generated by new “King James AI” software is any indication, this is hardly a promising prospect.) Harari's comments on AI and religion are only the most recent in a long history of creepy hot takes on technocracy, transhumanism, surveillance, and social engineering. Few areas of futuristic speculation have escaped his comment. An atheist, Harari claimed in an interview with Huff Post that “we really are becoming gods in the most literal sense possible,” and remarked that technologies such as Google and Facebook are making deity obsolete. In a TED Talk, he argued that artificial intelligence was slated to render entire classes of humanity useless, concluding that “we just don't need the vast majority of the population.” During peak pandemic panic, Harari was also suspiciously enthusiastic about seizing opportunities for social engineers to exploit the COVID crisis. “Covid is critical because this is what convinces people to accept, to legitimize, total biometric surveillance,” he told the WEF panel. “We need not just to monitor people, we need to monitor what’s happening under their skin.” In a BBC interview, he remarked that "People could look back in 100 years and identify the coronavirus epidemic as the moment when a new regime of surveillance took over, especially surveillance under the skin which I think is maybe the most important development of the 21st Century [...] this ability to hack human beings." But who exactly is this so-called intellectual who speaks with such relish about ushering in a techno-dystopia? What are his qualifications, and how did he achieve his present level of influence? Readers may not be surprised to learn that Harari's pretensions of expertise as a leading futurist are dubious at best (as is the field of futurism itself, for that matter). His academic background has precious little to do with anything remotely technical or scientific: Harari's early bibliography is comprised of work on medieval and early modern military history (a rather obscure academic niche which he probably should have stuck to). His career made an apparent about face when he ambitiously pivoted into writing on popular science, publishing titles like Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind (2014), Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow (2016) and 21 Lessons for the 21st Century (2018). His popular science books have been met with mixed reviews, garnering praise from the likes of Barack Obama and Bill Gates, while receiving far more critical reception from the academic and scientific community. Harari's questionable professional rebranding from niche historian to globalist guru seems to have served him well, as he has managed to ascend from a relatively unglamorous academic career to the echelons of elite think tanks. But in spite of all this worldly success, Harari's credentials are ultimately fraudulent. As Darshana Narayanan observes in an excellent critical profile of Harari in Current Affairs magazine: If you are not yet disquieted, consider: among Harari’s flock are some of the most powerful people in the world, and they come to him much like the ancient kings to their oracles. Mark Zuckerberg asked Harari if humanity is becoming more unified or fragmented by technology. The Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund asked him if doctors will depend on Universal Basic Income in the future. The CEO of Axel Springer, one of the largest publishing houses in Europe, asked Harari what publishers should do to succeed in the digital world. An interviewer with The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) asked him what effect COVID would have on international scientific cooperation. In favor of Harari’s half-formed edicts, each subverted their own authority. And they did it not for an expert in any one of their fields, but for a historian who, in many ways, is a fraud—most of all, about science. Admittedly, Harari strategically tempers his enthusiasm for social engineering with vague gestures of circumspection about the potential abuses of technological power. Yet, while it would appear from certain angles that he is a critic of such abuses (as claimed by spurious debunking articles), his faux caution is toothless and overgeneral. When he criticizes surveillance and social engineering, it is generally only in context of nation states using technology to flout global interests. (He cites a speculative example of a North Korean techno-dictatorship, for instance.) Conveniently, the potential for future abuses of surveillance and social engineering by global governing bodies are quietly omitted from his considerations. For the discerning, Harari's egregious comments, coupled with the very fact that he has entered league with Schwab and the WEF on the globalist project, is evidence that he and his friends are cooking up a main dish of tofu totalitarianism, with a sparse garnish of civil liberties at best.
Southern Border Collapse Echoes Ancient Roman Disaster
The history of the late Roman empire offers dizzying parallels to the present stage of American civilization. This is not a novel observation, of course. It is common knowledge that, not unlike America, the declining empire was plagued by runaway inflation, deteriorating infrastructure, violent transfers of power, sexual debauchery, religious infighting, a decline in civic life, and influxes of so-called barbarians into imperial territories. It is this final cause of collapse – unrestricted migration – that I will examine further here, in comparison to the present stage of American civilization. A survey of the period during which what Edward Gibbon termed a “deluge of barbarians” overran the empire is beyond my present scope, but it will suffice to say that the fall of the Western Roman Empire was preceded by a long series of migrations and invasions across compromised Roman borders. A case study of a disastrous border incident in the fourth century AD encapsulates the essence of the ongoing crisis along America's southern border today. Primary sources attest that, like our own government, the imperial administration of the late empire was directly responsible for bringing about a migration crisis on its own borders for political gain. In the final book of his History of Rome (Res Gestae), late Roman historian Ammianus Marcellinus records the infamous moment that a swath of Gothic refugees was officially invited to cross the Danube River during the rule of the emperor Valens in AD 376. Ammianus writes: “Therefore […] they [the Goths] took possession of the banks of the Danube, and sending envoys to Valens, with humble entreaty begged to be received, promising that they would not only lead a peaceful life but would also furnish auxiliaries, if circumstances required.” To condense a long sequence of events, the huge company of Gothic migrants that had suddenly descended on the imperial border was seen not as a danger, but rather as an opportunity by the Roman political and military elite. Ammianus records that “the affair caused more joy than fear,” since the recent arrivals were viewed as a pool of fresh recruits by which the emperor might bolster his own military power and profit financially. It is not hard to detect similar political interests behind the weaponization of migration by today's Democrats, who clearly stand to enjoy an enormous swelling in their support base by allowing unrestricted migration from central and South America. A 2022 study from Pew Research Center confirms that Hispanic voters continue to heavily favor the Democrat Party (60% of Hispanic voters surveyed indicated that the Democrat Party represented their interests, especially on immigration issues). At length, we read that the Roman state promised food and resettlement to the Gothic refugees, and not only permitted but facilitated the influx of Goths across the Roman border en masse. “In this expectation various officials were sent with vehicles to transport the savage horde, and diligent care was taken that no future destroyer of the Roman state should be left behind, even if he were smitten by a fatal disease. Accordingly, having by the emperor's permission obtained the privilege of crossing the Danube and settling in parts of Thrace, they were ferried over for some nights and days embarked by companies in boats, on rafts, and in hollowed tree-trunks...” This is where parallels start to pile up. Like Rome, the US government (collaborating with globalist-aligned NGOs) has acted to facilitate the perilous journey from central America to the southern border, and to provide direct transportation such as flights and busing across the country from major border crossing sites in Texas. Yet, the enthusiasm of both the Roman and American governments in encouraging and directly facilitating the entry of vast numbers of foreigners (unvetted and unscreened for disease) proved disastrous even to the refugees they invited: migrants face(d) extreme perils such as drowning, starvation, and slavery. Ammianus writes that many perished while attempting to cross the Danube River into Roman territory: “[...]because the river is by far the most dangerous of all and was then swollen by frequent rains, some who, because of the great crowd, struggled against the force of the waves and tried to swim were drowned; and they were a good many.” Moreover, the Gothic migrants who crossed successfully were soon beset by great hardship. Ammianus attests that many sold their own children into slavery to the Romans in exchange for dog meat. Circumstances on our own end of history look disturbingly similar. In September 2022 alone, the Texas Tribune reported that nine migrants perished in the waters of the Rio Grande during an attempt to cross into the US near Eagle Pass. Several drowning incidents have also been documented in May 2023, in addition to a disturbing close call involving an infant carried across the river by illegal border crossers. Another hazard presently faced by migrants on both sides of the border is slavery and sexual exploitation. Senator Ted Cruz has outlined the disturbing details of what he calls the “narco slave trade,” through which cartels exploit migrants, including children, to extract repayment of debts incurred during the illegal border crossing process. Cruz places blame squarely on the Biden administration for allowing human bondage in America on levels unseen since the Civil War. If we chart the parallel course between Ammianus' narrative and current events, we can mark this particular point in the history with a big, bold YOU ARE HERE. Much like the self-serving actions of the Roman elite in the fourth century, the Biden administration has brought about a humanitarian disaster at our southern border in the wake of Title 42, for no other conceivable reason than to consolidate political control by bolstering the bloc of dependents on the state. The events that followed the Gothic refugee crisis offer a dire warning to modern America. Ammianus elaborates on how corrupt Roman officials abused the Goths and quickly reneged on the promises made to them, ultimately leading to violence that consumed the empire. Two years later, in AD 378, Valens was routed by the Goths in the Battle of Adrianople. In AD 410, Rome was sacked by a Gothic army, and in AD 476 – just less than 100 years after Adrianople – the last Western Roman emperor would abdicate to a Gothic king, signaling the end of empire and the onset of the middle ages. It should not be lost on us that Ammianus places moral blame for this catastrophe less on the Goths, who were “as yet blameless” at the time of their crossing, and more on Roman corruption and cruelty. Moreover, lest any object that the barbarian analogy is prejudicial, we must recall three facts. First, that the category barbarian was by no means ethnically specific, and referred (if problematically) to all non-Romans and Greeks. Second, that the Goths were white by any definition. And third, that the poracity of our own southern border is an invitation for bad actors from all parts of the world to enter the US (yes, even Russians, if that is enough to galvanize the Democrats into action!). Open borders not only apply further heat to America's multicultural powder keg, but are also entirely unsustainable on an economic, infrastructural, and legal level. The only foreseeable result is that the US government will inevitably renege on its promises to migrants, and far worse, on its obligations to the American people. Nothing can follow but complete and utter collapse.
Gradually Then Suddenly - Cases of Hyperinflation in the Last Century
On June 13, 2023, Janet Yellen, former chair of the Federal Reserve and current Secretary of the Treasury, suggested that people should expect a gradual decline in the US dollar as the reserve currency. Although this is a rare moment of directional accuracy for Yellen, who is correct to imply that the dollar's days as the world's reserve currency are numbered, history shows that she is incorrect to suggest the decline will be gradual. Currency declines tend to happen gradually, then suddenly. Once a critical mass anticipates a future devaluation of their savings (which may have been happening "gradually" up until that point) there is a mad rush to the exit. Everyone hurries to exchange their currency for something of intrinsic value before the next guy. This sends the prices of goods soaring and drives the currency's value lower. Inflationary fuel is then added to the fire via government debt monetization. As the process above unfolds, sectors of the economy fail, the tax base collapses, and government obligations cannot be fulfilled. Politicians then turn to the printing press in a desperate attempt to "stimulate" the economy into recovery. The vicious cycle continues until citizens finally abandon the failed monetary unit and adopt a new form of money. Here are 5 cases of hyperinflation over the last century that transpired gradually, then suddenly, with total currency collapse taking a year or two at most. 1. Germany August 1922 - December 1923 After WWI, Germany was forced to sign the Treaty of Versailles. The treaty stated that "The Allied and Associated Governments affirm and Germany accepts the responsibility of Germany and her allies for causing all the loss and damage to which the Allied and Associated Governments and their nationals have been subjected." Later, on April 27, 1921, the Reparations Commission set Germany’s total war liability at 132 billion gold marks (roughly equivalent to $450 billion USD in 2023). Realizing that Germany would be unable to fulfill its reparations payments, the Reichsbank began a campaign of buying foreign currency with German marks at any price. Germany had infinite paper marks but no foreign currency, which was desperately needed. The policy of money printing was also done "to satisfy the work men’s demands by increasing their wages with worthless paper marks, to avoid political troubles and disturbances" (When Money Dies, p45). From here, collapse was inevitable. In December 1922, a loaf of bread cost 163 marks. By November 1923, the same loaf of bread cost 201 billion marks. Between August 1922 and December 1923, the average daily inflation rate was 20.9%. The highest monthly inflation rate was set in October of 1923, at 29,500%. Within one year, the German mark was destroyed and the wealth of millions evaporated. The rise to power of Adolf Hitler can be attributed, in part, to the economic destruction left in the wake of Germany's hyperinflationary tidal wave. 2. Hungary: August 1945 - July 1946 Following the end of WWII, the country of Hungary was in ruins, with total damages estimated at 40 percent of annual national income. To remedy this, the Hungarian government embarked on the primrose path of money printing to "stimulate" the post-war economy. Within one year, the total supply of Hungarian pengős went from 25 billion in July 1945 to 1.646 trillion by January 1946, to 65 quadrillion by May 1946, and finally peaked at 47 septillion (trillion trillion) in July 1946 according to Business Insider. From August 1945 to July 1946, the average daily inflation rate was over 200%, with monthly inflation peaking at 40 quadrillion (4.19 × 10^16) percent in July 1946. Finally, in August 1946 a new currency, the forint, was introduced at an exchange rate of 1 forint to 400 octillion pengő. This remains the worst case of hyperinflation in modern history. 3. China December 1947 - May 1949 Following the end of WWII, China was embroiled in a civil war between the Nationalist government of Chiang Kai-shek and the Communist forces of Mao Zedong. Unable to finance the war effort, Chiang's nationalist government printed the necessary funds. It is estimated that 65-80% of the nationalist government's annual expenses were financed via money creation. In December 1947, the money supply of China sat at 60 trillion Yuan. Seven months later, in July 1948, the money supply had expanded to 399 trillion Yuan. In August of 1948, a new Yuan was introduced, at an exchange rate of 1 new Yuan to 3 million old Yuan. Originally, the supply of new Yuan was just shy of 300 billion. By April of 1949, the supply of new Yuan had exploded to 5 quadrillion. At this point, monthly inflation was over 5000%. Ultimately, Chiang's nationalist army was defeated and forced to withdraw to Taiwan. Although the explanation for Chiang's loss is multicausal, it is undeniable that reckless monetary policy, by destroying the wealth of millions, helped to push portions of the Chinese population into the hands of the communists. 4. Federal Republic of Yugoslavia April 1992 - January 1994 After the collapse of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFR Yugoslavia) in 1992 the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (known simply as Yugoslavia) emerged. The combination of economic damage from the collapse of SFR Yugoslavia, a UN economic embargo (as punishment for Yugoslavia's involvement in the Bosnia War), and ballooning budget deficits resulted in the Yugoslav government resorting to debt monetization to solve its economic woes. By January of 1994, annual inflation was at 116 trillion percent with monthly inflation at 313,000,000%. On January 17th, 1994, the average pension payment of 4.8 million dinars could not pay for a kilogram of beef which sold for 70 million dinars. Citizens circulated banknotes with a face value of 500 billion dinars. According to the CATO Institute, the daily inflation rate between April 1992 and January 1994 averaged 64%, with prices doubling every 2 days. 5. Zimbabwe: March 2007 - November 2008 In the late 90s and early 2000s, the economy of Zimbabwe was suffering from low productivity and high national debt. The land reforms of President Mugabe redistributed large swaths of farmland from the white minority to black Zimbabweans who had little farming experience, resulting in a collapse in productivity. On top of this, the decision to fight in the Second Congo War cost Zimbabwe hundreds of millions of dollars it could not afford. To make up the difference, the money printer was turned on. In March 2007, the monthly inflation rate was 50%. A year later in March 2008, the monthly inflation rate was 281%, and by November 2008 monthly inflation peaked at 79,600,000,000%, according to the Cato Institute. Before the Zimbabwean dollar (Zimdollar) was abandoned in mid-November 2008, 100 trillion Zimdollar notes were circulating with an exchange value of less than 1 USD (around 40 cents to be exact). It is said that history doesn't repeat, but it often rhymes. Over the coming decades, the US has over $150 trillion worth of unfunded liabilities that will come due, such as Social Security, Medicare, pensions, etc. Add to this the tsunami of dollars held abroad that will flood American shores when the USD no longer functions as the world's reserve currency, and it is clear that the United States is soon to enter an era of epic inflationary proportions.
The 2030 Mass Migration Agenda
In September 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the "2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development." The agenda consists of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). You have probably seen the SDG logo which is a color wheel made up of 17 segments. Agenda 2030 outlines a blueprint for world socialism, stating that we are embarking on a "collective journey." What is largely undiscussed is the agenda's plan for mass migration. The Agenda 2030 white paper only mentions migration in regard to ensuring "safe, orderly, and regular migration involving full respect for human rights and the humane treatment of migrants." However, in a report by the IOM (International Organization of Migration) titled "Migration and the 2030 Agenda", an intentional mass migration plan is presented. The 156-page paper almost immediately states "The 2030 Agenda recognizes migration as a core development consideration, which marks the first time migration is integrated explicitly into the global development agenda" and further states that migrant men, women, and children are recognized as "agents of development." The report goes on to claim that "Many SDG targets can only be fully achieved if migration and migrants are considered. Not doing so may limit progress made by constraining the comprehensiveness and sustainability of efforts." This point is furthered when the report mentions "It is possible to link migration to every Goal in the 2030 Agenda." The report then goes on to show, in detail, the importance of migration in each of the 17 sustainable development goals. The report continues. In a section titled The Implementation Process, the paper lists various ways to raise "public awareness" of the 2030 agenda through means such as social media, traditional media, print and electronic materials (my Samsung phones came with an SDG app pre-installed), cultural events such as fairs, concerts, bike rides, and radio sessions, media training to "introduce migration in the SDGs to journalists and others working in media", and more. We encourage you to download the paper yourself and read it thoroughly, this is just a quick glimpse at the plan. The full report can be found here. A few more important white papers that relate to UN migration objectives can be found below: Migration and the United Nations Post-2015 Development Agenda Migration and the SDGs: Measuring Progress IOM Institutional Strategy on Migration and Sustainable Development Global Compact for Migration The collapse of the US southern border is part of a deliberate and carefully executed plan to usher in Agenda 2030. The United States is the largest financial contributor to the United Nations. Despite this, it is clear that the UN has become a creature that not even its master can control, with an agenda to change the United States of America as we know it.
San Jose Police Bureaucrat Busted for Fentanyl Importation
The executive director of the San Jose Police Officers' Association faces charges of drug trafficking for allegedly importing large quantities of synthetic opiates into the United States. Joanne Marian Segovia, 64, a twenty year employee of the police union, stands accused of “attempt[ing] to unlawfully import a controlled substance (specifically valeryl fentanyl).” Filed on March 27, 2023, the charges in question are based on US Customs and Border Protection records, which show that “between October 2015 and January 2023, Segovia had approximately 61 shipments mailed to her home” from international drug traffickers based primarily in Asia, especially India and China. According to court documents, the shipments of narcotics were marked as mundane items like “Wedding Party Favors” and “Gift Makeup.” When held for questioning, Segovia placed the blame for the illegal shipments on a family friend and personal housekeeper who, according to Segovia, used her smartphone to impersonate her in order to place the orders. Seized chat logs from Segovia's Whatsapp account, however, tell a different story. Authorities believe that Segovia was in fact using a computer at her work office to arrange the illegal shipments. In several different text exchanges seized by authorities, Segovia goes as far as to casually divulge department info to an Indian drug trafficker. For instance, a text from May 2, 2022 reads “Im so sorry, im on a business trip because we had 2 officers that got shot! I should be home tomorrow night...” The allegations against Segovia are particularly troubling, not only because the mass importation of incredibly deadly narcotics like fentanyl leads to upwards of 100000 overdoses a year, but because of the complicity of law enforcement in this crisis. Though comparatively rare, perhaps, the case of Joanne Marian Segovia is not an isolated incident. It is unclear whether any Segovia had any accomplices in the San Jose law enforcement community, or whether any colleagues were privy to her dealings. AP reports that Segovia's professional associates were shocked by the allegations. According to San Jose police union spokesperson Tom Saggau, “we didn't have any reason to suspect her.” The ignorance of Segovia's colleagues in law enforcement is hardly comforting, however. If a 64-year old police bureaucrat can be so brazen as to conduct international drug trafficking from her department work computer, under the very nose of the San Jose police force, one can only imagine what drug trafficking crimes routinely transpire in police departments across the nation, on the taxpayer dollar no less, while thousands die every day from the toxic drugs flooding our streets. (Take, for instance, two cases from 2022 alone, one involving an officer from NYPD, another from Columbus PD.) How many major police forces harbor (knowingly or not) such criminals on staff, even on active duty, all while we we pour billions every year into a failed war on drugs?
Psychedelics, Psyops, and Secret Societies
Hallucinogens are hip again. Far out. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 2021 saw a record-high rate of 8% for past-year hallucinogen use among young adults. With rising rates of hallucinogen use has also come a general softening of old attitudes toward laws outlawing psychedelic drugs. Oregon, for instance, decriminalized possession of psilocybin mushrooms in 2020. Colorado followed suit in 2022. As of December 2022, California is considering legislation (Senate Bill 58) that would do the same. Read the news for a month or two, and you are certain to encounter a slew of (mostly softball) pieces shining up the psychiatric, creative, or spiritual benefits of psychedelic drugs (and it's not just VICE anymore). Consider suggestively titled headlines such as The "Psychonauts" Training to Explore Another Dimension (New Republic), The Psychedelic Revolution is Coming. Psychiatry May Never Be the Same (New York Times), and Aaron Rodgers says psychedelic drugs led to "best season of my career" (New York Post). Such favorable perceptions of psychedelic drugs can, of course, be traced back to the familiar cultural “myth” of hallucinogens and the golden age of American counterculture in the 50s and 60s, when such popular intellectuals as Aldous Huxley, Richard Alpert (Ram Dass), R. Gordon Wasson, and Timothy Leary hailed the “mind-expanding” properties of drugs like LSD, psilocybin mushrooms, and mescaline. Picked up by the Beats and the Hippies, such drugs were used by some of the brightest young minds of those decades, catalyzing great artistic innovation and cultural change. Or so the story goes. But the closer we look, the more we realize that this familiar narrative is based on a misconception, if not a deception. Early psychedelic drug culture appears not so much to have grown organically, erupting into western consciousness from the “bottom up” as a vital outgrowth of marginalized countercultures in the 50s and 60s, but rather “top down” as a byproduct (or intentional manifestation) of abusive psychological ops such as MK-ULTRA, perpetrated upon the American public by elite factions in the CIA. Even foundational Beat poet Allen Ginsberg, first introduced to LSD through government-funded psychedelic experiments at Stanford University, asked himself: "Am I […] the product of one of the CIA's lamentable, ill-advised, or triumphantly successful experiments in mind control?" –Quoted from Martin A. Lee, Bruce Shlain, Acid Dreams: The Complete Social History of LSD: The CIA, the Sixties, and Beyond. (USA: Grove Press., 1992) p xix If we interrogate the cultural myths about the so-called psychedelic era, many cracks begin to appear. In particular, disclosures about grossly abusive CIA involvement with psychedelic drug research (the notorious MK-ULTRA psyop in particular) have become a matter of public record. While not yet mainstream, such revelations are also no longer “fringe.” Yet, despite the public availability of verified historical accounts on the matter (see David McGowan, Henry Makow, Peter Levenda, Jim Keith), we have not yet been able to square these disturbing revelations with increasingly positive perceptions of psychedelic drug use. What are we to make of this? As a veteran of the Beat generation, poet, religious scholar, and conspiracy analyst Charles Upton had a front row seat to the psychedelic era. Upton delves into this impasse in Vectors of the Counter-Initiation (2012), a collection of essays probing the complex relationship between global political elites, occult ideologies, and the New World Order agenda. The ninth chapter Drug-Induced Mysticism Revisited: Interview with Charles Upton (p207-258), presented as a dialogue between Upton and Samuel Bendeck Sotillos, considers the impact of psychedelic drugs on public consciousness during the 20th century as a possible vector of occult influence. Upton remarks: And we also need, not just to remember, but to grasp the full import of, the fact that LSD was first distributed in the United States by the CIA, partly in the context of the infamous MK-ULTRA mind-control program, which included experiments practiced upon unsuspecting American citizens that were worthy to stand beside those conducted in the Nazi death camps [...] Timothy Leary was assigned to feed acid to the intelligentsia, Ken Kesey to everybody else; the idea was to compare how it acted under “controlled conditions” with its effects in a totally free-wheeling, “party” atmosphere. And the hippies actually knew about this! They said “SURE we were a CIA experiment, man – an experiment that GOT OUT OF CONTROL!” But the fact is that LSD initiated a kind of “bardo” or revelatory decay of American culture […] And the social engineers simply sat back and took notes. […] The hippies naively equated social control with a simplistic authoritarian repression; they rarely awoke to the fact that REAL control is based on co-optation, on the covert implantation of engineered beliefs and attitudes in the mass mind. (p239) Elaborating on this point, he cites examples of connections between the US intelligence community and psychedelic counterculture during the 1960s. He notes, for instance, that William Mellon Hitchcock, associate of CIA front organizations Castle Bank and Trust and Resorts International, was not coincidentally landlord of Timothy Leary's “psychedelic manor house” at Millbrook. Hitchcock was known to have paid chemists to produce “millions of doses of acid,” having collaborated with Robert “Tim” Scully to produce the famous “Orange Sunshine” LSD. (p241) As Upton reveals, such entanglements are only scratching the surface of elite involvement in psychedelic research. Cults and secret societies, in fact, have demonstrably steered psyops such as MK-ULTRA to study psychedelic drugs for their own questionable purposes. Upton presents a number of compelling pieces of evidence on the involvement of Freemasonry and other cults in the early history of psychedelic research, via vectors of influence in the intelligence community (see Endnote VII, p255-256) He quotes conspiracy researcher Jim Keith: "Curiously, another MK-ULTRA faction consisted of representatives of the Scottish Rite of Masonry, which had sponsored research into eugenics, psychiatry, and mind control since at least the 1930s. MK-ULTRA doctor Robert Hanna Felix was director of psychiatric research for the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, and the director of the National Institute of Mental Health. Felix was the immediate senior of Dr. Harris Isbell, already noted in relation to MK-ULTRA. Another prominent Freemason involved in MK-ULTRA was Dr. Paul Hoch, financed by the Army Chemical Center." —Jim Keith, quoted from “The CIA and Control” in Mass Control: Engineering Human Consciousness (Kempton, IL: Adventures Unlimited Press, 2003) p65 Upton also notes the career of Andrija Puharich, a parapsychologist who who was involved with a new age divination cult which claimed to channel the will of a group of extraterrestrials called the Council of Nine. He quotes Keith: After the demise of Puharich's Round Table [Foundation, located in Glen Cove, Maine] he spent time with social engineer Aldous Huxley in Tecate, Mexico, again studying the effects of electronics on the human organism. Puharich was also employed at the Army's Chemical and Biological Warfare Center at Fort Detrich, Maryland, researching the effects of LSD for the CIA in 1954. He delved into the effects of digatoid drugs at the Permanente Research Foundation, with funding from the Sandoz Chemical Works. –Jim Keith, quoted from “Electronic Mind Control” in Mass Control: Engineering Human Consciousness (Kempton, IL: Adventures Unlimited Press, 2003) p176 Are cults and secret societies still involved in studying psychedelics? Evidence points in this direction. In the Afterword to chapter nine, Upton notes that during the 1990s, the Freemasons again took interest in funding psychedelic research. He writes: Some time after granting this interview, I talked with a physician acquaintance of mine who had participated in the second round of psilocybin experiments within academia in the 1990s; I hadn't realized that they had started up again that early. He investigated the source of the funding for the experiment he'd been part of at the University of New Mexico, and discovered that the money for the DMT research that led up to the experiments he had been involved in had been provided by the Scottish Rite Foundation for Schizophrenia Research – the Freemasons!” (Afterword, p243) Upton corroborates this report with a quote from Dr. Rick Strassman himself, the same UNM scientist whose research (notably presented in the book DMT: The Spirit Molecule , turned into documentary film in 2010) was responsible for catapulting the hallucinogen DMT (dimethyltryptamine) into the public eye. Upton quotes Strassman (see Endnote VII): “A grant from a branch of the Masons, the Scottish Rite Foundation for Schizophrenia Research, helped establish the merit of my study a year before I actually began it. Why the Masons had an interest in schizophrenia in general, and DMT in particular, I do not know, but I believe that garnering such support enhanced the esteem of my study in the eyes of the relevant regulatory and funding agencies.” (emphasis added) —Rick Strassman, quoted from “DMT: The Brain's Own Psychedelic” in Inner Paths to Outer Space: Journeys to Alien Worlds through Psychedelics and Other Spiritual Technologies (Rochester, VT: Park Street Press, 2008) p48 You don't need to be a “square” to find this alarming. I do not particularly object to ethical scientific research on, or even limited therapeutic usage of, psychedelic drugs in a controlled psychiatric context (for treatment of PTSD, for instance). Do some people have positive, even genuinely therapeutic, experiences with psychedelics? Yes. Have thousands of otherwise harmless citizens been harshly, even unjustly, incarcerated for simple possession and personal use? Also, yes. Yet, there is reason to view the recent spate of media enthusiasm for psychedelic drug use with great suspicion. Patterns of cult and intelligence community involvement in hallucinogen research should be a huge “red flag.” We must be especially wary of propaganda which elevates drug trips to the level of mystical revelation, and thereby reifies the various visions and delusions experienced by the tripper. Projects such as the quest to “map” the DMT headspace and its resident “sentient entities” by researchers at Imperial College London's Center for Psychedelic Research, for instance, smack of occult influence. Even as alternative media giants like Joe Rogan excitedly promote such undertakings, I believe we should maintain skepticism, even caution, toward those who make such claims. Be safe out there, and as the hippies said, question authority. Especially if they're offering you drugs.
Biden's biotech order a blank check for transhumanism
On September 12, the Biden White House issued an unusual and deeply concerning executive order, titled “Executive Order Advancing Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Innovation for a Sustainable, Safe, and Secure American Bioeconomy.” Section 1 of the executive order calls for numerous federal agencies – including the DHS and DOD – to expand funding for research on novel applications of biotechnology. From the outset, the order exploits the COVID-19 pandemic to claim the importance of new government spending on biotech research and development. “The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the vital role of biotechnology and biomanufacturing in developing and producing life-saving diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccines that protect Americans and the world.” This is a bad start. The unconstitutional incursions of medical police states around the world (in Australia, the UK, Canada, and here in America) – enabled by gross exploitation of biodata, such as vaccination databases used to grant, or deny, digital health passes – suggest an ominous trajectory for the future of biotech. The executive order goes on to claim that biotechnology will “help us achieve our societal goals” – a grim foreshadowing, perhaps, of an immanent scaling-up of the biotech-powered social engineering we have witnessed in the wake of the pandemic. “For biotechnology and biomanufacturing to help us achieve our societal goals, the United States needs to invest in foundational scientific capabilities. We need to develop genetic engineering technologies and techniques to be able to write circuitry for cells and predictably program biology in the same way in which we write software and program computers; unlock the power of biological data, including through computing tools and artificial intelligence; and advance the science of scale‑up production while reducing the obstacles for commercialization so that innovative technologies and products can reach markets faster.” Here is further reason for pause. The executive order stakes as broad a mandate as possible... An incredibly sweeping program to “predictably program biology” with genetic engineering (of which the experimental, ineffective, and often deadly mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are touted as shining examples). A few questions present themselves... Whose biology? Are we talking about the genetics of tomatoes, mice, and pigs? Or of human beings? The language of the executive order suggests the latter. More importantly, who is the aforementioned “we,” so privileged to spearhead opening the Pandora's Box of genetic engineering on humans? The answer, we find, is none other than the unelected officials of the deep state. In vague phrasing, “biotech,” “biomanufacturing,” “bioeconomy,” and “biodata” are repeatedly connected to a paramount but ill-defined “biosecurity.” The executive order states, with little explanation, the priority of “elevat[ing] biological risk management as a cornerstone of the life cycle of biotechnology and biomanufacturing R&D.” The official White House Fact Sheet for this executive order contains another concerning piece of jargon: we must, it asserts, “Build a Thriving, Secure Global Bioeconomy with Partners and Allies.” What, precisely, does a “Secure Global Bioeconomy” mean? And why does the executive order link advances in biotechnology so closely to globalism? We need only reflect on recent presentations at the 2022 World Economic Forum to grasp the dystopian implications of such a paradigm. This year, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla presented a devilish pipedream of microchip-enforced pharmaceutical compliance to an enthusiastic Davos elite at the 2022 conference... For the past half a decade, at least, the same WEF shills have been shamelessly promoting the transhumanist arm of the Great Reset. The WEF hails, for example, the emergence of a so-called “internet of bodies” comprised of wearable and implanted digital devices – ingestible microchips to diagnose (read, “surveil”) medical conditions, brain implants to "cure" depression, and an economic transition to implanted microchips as a medium of digital identification. You can connect the dots. Is Biden's new executive order a covert implementation of the WEF's transhumanist agenda? All indications would point to this. But the lofty pretenses of transhumanism may in fact be setting in place the technological infrastructure for a police state. In the two decades following 9/11, Americans have entirely ceded their private electronic communications, and thereby the minutiae of their private lives, to the government and big tech. All that remains to make this surveillance dystopia absolute is the establishment of a biotech regime. The autonomy of the body, and the privacy of the mind, are the very bases for human liberty. Both are under threat from state and corporate weaponization of biotech as a tool of economic exploitation and social control. The time for vigilance has never been greater.
