We are truly in a war.
It is not the war we imagine we are in,
which is the way our true adversaries want it. It is not a foreign
war against a foreign enemy. It is a war on consciousness, a war on
our own minds. The global war on terror that is being fought around
the world is an embodied reflection in the material world of a
deeper, more fundamental war that is going on in the realm of
We have the most criminal regime in all of our history wreaking
unspeakable horror on the entire planet, while simultaneously waging
war on the consciousness of its own citizens - US. If we aren't
aware of this, we are unwittingly playing into, supporting and
complicit in the evil that is being perpetrated in our name.
A government's war on the consciousness of its own citizens is by no
means unique to the Bush administration. Abusing power over
others so as to limit their freedom is an archetypal process that
has been endlessly re-enacted by governments throughout history in
various forms. With the Bush administration, however, the
pathological aspect of this process has become so exaggerated and
amped up to such a degree that it is just about impossible not to
notice its staggering malignancy.
With the Bush administration, the
underlying evil that has played out in our government over many
years is becoming overwhelmingly obvious for all to see. With the
Bush administration, the underlying evil that informs systems of
government that are based on "power over" instead of "liberty for"
is coming out from hiding in the shadows. Instead of being acted out
underground, our government is acting out this evil above ground, in
plain sight for all who are courageous enough to look.
Impeaching Bush and Co. ultimately won't change anything
unless we deal with the corrupt powers which control and direct
them. George Bush is just a finger-puppet of the hidden
hand which animates him. Bush only has apparent power, as he
himself is a minion of far more powerful predator-like forces whose
nefarious interests he serves. Whether we call it
the illuminati, the
global elite, a
government, or a secret cabal, there is no doubt that there are
darker, self-serving forces that have insinuated themselves into and
taken over our government. The terrorists that we should be
worried about are domestic terrorists who are actually
implementing their agendas from deep within our very system of
The United States Government itself has become a "front" for the
underlying military-industrial-financial crime syndicate that
animates it. This is not to say that there aren't many good,
well-meaning people in our government they are simply prohibited
by the very nature of the corrupt system they are in from reforming
it. Our system of government is rigged in such a way so that there
is no way to transform the system within the system itself.
The underlying core of our government has become rotten such that
the entire operation simply feeds into and is an expression of the
same underlying corruption. All of the scandals continually coming
out are like the superficial skin rash of a much deeper systemic
disease, like a cancer that is infecting the greater body politic.
Citizens who are not aware of our government's insidious intrusions
into our lives are unwittingly feeding the corruption they are
looking away from in their very act of looking away.
The "powers" that have taken over our government have become
concentrated and centralized in just a few elite hands, proving how
easy it is for the few to control the many. They almost control all
the levers of power: financial, political and judicial. In this war
on consciousness, these powers-that-be are using the most advanced
mind-control technology that our world has ever known to make its
takeover complete. The essence of mind-control is information
control, which is one thing our overly secretive current
administration is very good at.
The private interests that control our government have an incredible
mind-control/propaganda machine at
their disposal in the form of the mainstream media, which if not
quite fully owned and controlled, is certainly under their
"influence" enough to serve their underlying self-serving agenda.
George Orwell once said that omission is the greatest form of
lie this perfectly describes the corporate owned media of
today which is nothing other than the propaganda organ of the state.
The corporate world and our government are becoming
indistinguishable, which is one of the hallmarks of fascism, or more
In addition to information, our government is adept at putting out
dis-information, whose intention is to create distractions and
confusion so as to cover its tracks and hide its true intentions. It
will purposely leak stories that are not true simply to cover-up
what it is really doing. By putting out misleading information, the
government hides behind its self-generated smokescreen like an
octopus squirting ink.
Quite often, right at the moment when people's focus is moving
towards some area of criminality in the White House, the
administration will even create a diversionary event for the public
to put their attention on. Memories of those color-coded terror
alerts that always seemed to happen right when something bad was
starting to happen for the Bush administration come to mind. In
creating distractions, our government is able to steer our
collective attention in directions that allow it to successfully
accomplish its malevolent goal of grabbing all the power it can get.
In a diabolical ploy, the administration will even feed stories to a
compliant press, and then reference these stories as justification
for enacting its pre-planned agenda. One glaring example is when the
administration fed Judith Miller of the New York Times
stories about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. Once this
propaganda appeared on the front page of the Times, the
administration was only too happy to use it as evidence for why we
should go to war.
WMD could easily stand for "Weapons of Mind Deception", as
our own government is continually trying to "Deceive" our "Minds",
which is the battlefield in which the war on consciousness is being
fought. We are all on the front lines in the war on consciousness,
whether we know it or not. Instead of shooting us, our government is
using cutting-edge mind-control technology
to psychically emasculate us. In order to be able to deal with the
evil that the Bush regime is perpetrating, we first have to become
acquainted with that very same potential evil in ourselves so as to
be able to recognize it in the outside world. The way to vanquish
our adversary is to be found hidden within the very nature of our
own awareness, which contains the key to its own freedom.
The corporate-mainstream media "captivates" our attention, capturing
a part of our self-reflective, discriminative awareness, thereby
restricting the range of our conscious awareness, which is what
hypnotism is all about. Once the attention of the masses becomes
entranced, the corporate/government media can then "play with" our
mind. This unholy trinity of corporate/government/media can create
an obsessive fixation on certain superficial events that "seize" the
collective psyche. For example, it feeds the masses sensationalized
stories such as Anna Nicole Smith ad nauseam so as to divert our
attention from the evil that is being done behind the scenes in
Ex-CIA director Allen Dulles used to say that the most
effective way to disguise a secret is to pretend to openly share
information. The Bush administration isn't interested in solving
problems as much as creating good PR (Public Relations) for itself.
With one hand the Bush administration will try to appear like it is
openly sharing information and being transparent, while with its
other hand it will be actively obstructing the very process it is
seemingly supporting. A vivid example is the government's 9/11
commission, whose aim was allegedly to shed light on what
happened on 9/11, while covertly behind the scenes the Bush
administration was doing everything it could to hinder the
commission's inquiries (see, for example,
9/11 Commission Report - Omissions and
Distortions, by David Ray Griffin).
All one has to do is investigate the
numerous ties to the core cabal of the neocon Bush administration
that the members of the 9/11 commission have and the degree to which
it was a deliberate operation to obscure the truth becomes apparent.
It was as if the White House was investigating itself; the foxes
truly guarding the henhouse. The 9/11 commission and its report,
just like the Warren Commission and its report on the Kennedy
assassination, was a façade, a show, a display in which it appeared
like our government was giving us what we wanted, while actually
being part of a deceptive game of smoke-and-mirrors. It is like a
magician has hypnotized us, and is stealing what's in our pockets
while they have us under their trance in which we believe they are
As if by a perverse Jedi mind-trick, the Bush administration has
bewitched us into believing that it controls the national dialogue,
when in a democracy the opposite is actually true. One of many
examples when confronted with overwhelming evidence that we have
been torturing our adversaries, Bush responds by saying he "rejects"
that claim, and the conversation stops right there and moves on to
other, more superficial topics. Our government is supposed to
represent us, which is to say that they are our employees. Bush has
turned this around and put himself in the role of the dictator with
us as his subjects. And somehow we have allowed him to get away with
this. There is no escaping our individual and collective complicity
in this sad state of affairs.
One difference between what is happening in our country and the
state-controlled media of the old Soviet Union, is that in the
Soviet Union, most people were quite aware that what was being
presented to them by their corrupt government as news was nothing
but mind-warping propaganda. Many Americans have fallen so under the
spell of the Bush regime's criminal lies that they don't even know
they are being lied to. It is like we are living in a land of
state-controlled zombies who think they are free citizens of a free
It is as if millions of our fellow citizens have fallen asleep, as
if they have become hypnotized and brainwashed by the powers-that-be's
incessant "managing" and "massaging" of reality. These powers simply
manipulate an already gullible and highly suggestible public into a
game of "divide and conquer." They get rich off of other's blood -
they incite conflict, and covertly support both sides, as they
themselves reap the benefit of the conflict.
The corporate war machine, which is co-dependently entangled with
our government, profits wildly from our invading other sovereign
countries. The government-military-industrial complex's solution to
the very problem that they created by instigating wars more war!
It's completely sick and totally insane. And we, in our dulled
denial like hypnotized sheep - simply go along and allow the whole
parasitic enterprise to be fed by offering our sons and daughters as
fodder. To the extent that we are not shedding light on the utter
criminality and insanity of what the Bush administration is doing
and saying "No," we are all complicit in feeding our own genocide.
Bush and our Congressional leaders are mouthpieces for the
advertising campaign of distortion and falsehood that is being
"bomb-arded" into our psyches on a daily basis. Our "leaders"
repetitive slogans and incantations brand and imprint themselves
deep into our unconscious, where many who do not have enough psychic
resistance fall under the spell. (see Chapter 8 "Breaking Bush's
The Madness of George W. Bush - A Reflection of
our Collective Psychosis).
People's ability to discern truth from
fiction has been rendered inoperative by our own government's
pattern of routinely taking liberty with the truth. Government
propaganda has inverted the perception of what is actually
happening, as lies are presented as truths, and up is portrayed as
down in a truly Orwellian universe of confounding doublespeak.
Through the "Big Lie" which is based on that the bigger the lie,
the harder it is for people to see the truth - the government has
transformed myth into seeming fact, and has achieved
its goal of muddling our minds so as to dis-empower us.
Many of us haven't developed the psychic immunity to be able to
fully ward off the toxic effects of our government's covert,
fear-based psychological warfare. An expression of the success of
our government's psy-ops against US is the fact that there's so
little awareness about the government's assault on our minds that
it's hardly even a part of our national dialogue. The insidiousness
of the government's covert manipulation of our minds is even found
in the very term "Global War on Terror".
Global War on Terror" is a crazy-making,
self-contradictory statement, as we can never stop terror with a war
on the contrary, wars induce terror! This term carries with it a
false and self-negating premise that if we accept we've already
given away our power. If we leave this underlying assumption
unquestioned, we unwittingly allow them to frame the agenda on their
terms. We have then already fallen under their spell without knowing
it, as our capacity to think and respond creatively is undermined.
Our inability to creatively respond to the war on our consciousness
is an expression of being immobilized in fear as if frozen in
trauma. The war on terror is really a war on our psyche. The war on
terror is ultimately about control control of our minds.
What Bush and our Congressional leaders are doing is so
morally outrageous that it is literally off the charts of accepted,
"normal", ethical, sane human behavior. In the words of French poet
Andre Chenier, Bush and Co. are committing "crimes that make
the laws tremble," as they are covertly undermining our very legal
and political system itself. The corruption that has infected our
body politic is like a virus that is exploiting weaknesses in our
political immune system so as to feed and spread its pathology.
Those of us who are somewhat sane can easily lack the imagination
for the depth of depravity that the Bush administration regularly
acts out in the world. Our lack of imagination works to the
government's advantage, as it allows them to continue to act out the
darkness in a manner which is incomprehensible to us. This is why
the great doctor of the soul C. G. Jung counseled us to
develop an "imagination for evil," as being able to imagine the
scope of evil that human beings can fall prey to and act out
empowers us to see it clearly and thereby deal with it more
Our government's lying and criminality is so pervasive that we have
become desensitized to their corruption. Their evil has become so
"normalized," that just like someone watching TV becomes numb and
anesthetized to the violence, we have become desensitized to the
horror of what Bush and his cronies are doing right in front of our
very eyes day after day. We've learned or, shall I say, become
programmed - to accept the fact that the Bush administration is
almost always lying, for, as we are told "All governments lie".
OF THE TRUTH
Bush and Co., with the help of the US Supreme Court and the
approval of Congress, rigged the 2000 and 2004 elections (see,
Fooled Again by Mark Crispin Miller). Then, with the help
of the corporate media which is dependent on the good graces of
military and government budgets and operations, Bush and Co. put out
mind-numbing propaganda that no such hostile takeover had even taken
place, to the point where after a little while most people forgot
that anything out of the ordinary had occurred.
The government's propaganda machine
plays with our minds, putting us in a somnambulistic state so that
we eventually begin to accept the version of reality (in our
example, that Bush has been "elected" to be our president) that
serves its underlying agenda.
Once the office of "perception management" convinces a critical mass
of people of a particular viewpoint, there is a "consensus" or
"agreement" that is reached among the masses as to what is
objectively true. The agreed upon version of reality takes on a
"weight" and becomes the established dogma of what is collectively
imagined to be really happening. Like a "religious" truth, it is
irrationally believed like an act of faith by its card-carrying
members, even if overwhelming evidence points to the contrary.
Anyone who doesn't buy into the arbitrarily established story is
marginalized and demonized, and either called crazy, a
conspiracy theorist, or even a terrorist ("You're either
with us or you're with the enemy").
If only one person believed the propaganda-created consensus version
of reality, they'd be thought of as crazy. If a small group of
people believed it, they'd be thought of as a cult. When a certain
critical mass of people irrationally believe this fictionalized
version of reality (in our case, that Bush has been "elected" by the
people) to be objectively true, however, they are considered normal.
Mass psychology then becomes the order of the day, as our species,
animated and inspired by fear which Bush and his regime are only
too happy to cultivate - reverts to the primitive psychology of the
herd. A collective amnesia ensues, continually fed by a
self-generating web of endless denial, as the manufactured consent
is recreated anew every moment. A field of force which literally
resists conscious reflection becomes conjured up around those who
have fallen under the seductive spell of the agreed upon and
artificially constructed consensus reality.
Anyone reflecting back their unconscious
condition is considered to be the enemy. Dissociating from their own
darkness, they fight with it outside of themselves as it is
projected into and reflected back by the world. Believing the
agreed-upon fantasy, they collectively fall into their unconscious
together and reinforce each other's delusions in a self-perpetuating
feedback loop, which is another way of saying that they have fallen
into a collective psychosis.
Bush was not elected by the people. The
military-industrial-financial crime syndicate's minions and
operatives had already insinuated themselves into key positions of
power so as to accomplish their long-planned for covert takeover of
the government. Some of their cronies had already infiltrated the
Supreme Court, where they literally derailed the democratic process
and decided, with no basis in law, to unconstitutionally invest
themselves with the authority of bestowing the election upon Bush.
Bush's seeming "election by the people"
was in fact a strategically implemented political coup d'etat. Very
few even noticed this act of violence because of the criminal
syndicate's control of the mainstream media. Their propaganda
machine succeeded in managing our perceptions just the way they
wanted, which is a polite way of saying they successfully pulled the
wool over most of our eyes, or pulled the rug out from under us
without too many of us even noticing.
In a diabolical feedback loop, the underlying crime syndicate, by
putting out propaganda (that Bush has been elected president)
creates the very situation (Bush becoming president) which confirms
the truth of their propaganda, like in a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Being in a position of power, they are tapping into how they can
shape the world in their own image, which they are imposing on the
world through forceful means. They have in some perverse way begun
to access how they can seemingly manipulate and create "reality".
Because of their position of power, these sick few can control the
masses by manipulating events in the world, as well as playing with
our perceptions. They are tapping into how in managing our
perceptions, they can literally create events, and in creating
events, they can manage our perceptions. This is a divine secret,
but in tapping into it with an impure heart, where power is
prioritized over love, it is always destined for failure. In the
end, these black magicians will ultimately self-destruct, there is
no question about this whatsoever. It is simply a question of
mitigating the disaster as they create their own ruin.
Another example of our government's attack on our consciousness:
After the 9/11 attacks, there is only one
thing certain the official story put out by our government, itself
a conspiracy theory, is not true. There is no question
about this to any thinking person who has even minimally studied the
evidence. The fact that our own government is not telling the truth
to us about what happened on 9/11, as well as actively obstructing
any investigation into what actually did happen, is a huge red flag:
Why would our own government be
lying, and covering up their lie?
Who knows (maybe the shadow?) at
this point whether 9/11 was a false flag operation, covertly
perpetrated by our own government against us, or whether
they knew about it beforehand but simply allowed it to
happen so as to gain political advantage?
Something's very fishy about the whole
The fact that our country, except on the
margins, is not even having an open discussion about what really
happened on 9/11 the official version put out by the government is
blindly accepted by millions of people as the objective truth
- is another expression of our government shaping our dialogue, both
nationally and within our own minds. The government's distorted
story about what happened on 9/11 is itself an expression of the
deeper and more general underlying conspiracy of our government to
defraud us of the truth.
The last thing this criminal enterprise wants is for us to see what
it is doing. These criminal war lords want us to believe that
we live in a democracy. For example, in a diabolical sleight
of hand, we are given the illusory stage-show of free elections,
while there is overwhelming evidence that the elections were rigged.
Even to be in a position to run for
president you have to be able to raise hundreds of millions of
dollars this itself is the entrance fee to the game. In addition,
the only people who would be allowed by these robber barons to be in
a position of power such as "Commander-in-Chief" is someone they
Barack or Hillary? It's
an illusion of choice, a stage-managed distraction from what's
really going on. We are left with the appearance, and a misguided
belief, that we live in a government run "by the people and for the
In a very real sense, the Democrats and
Republicans are simply various factions who are fighting for the
right to represent the underlying military-industrial-financial
crime syndicate that owns and operates our government. Those who
control "our" government want to keep their operations covert,
beneath our conscious awareness.
For if enough of us become conscious of
the evil and depravity that they are perpetrating in our name on the
entire planet, their gig is up.
HOW TO ACHIEVE
VICTORY IN THE WAR ON CONSCIOUSNESS
The powers that have taken over our country will do anything in
their sorcerer's bag of tricks to distract us and keep up the
illusion that they are protecting us so as to maintain power. These
banking and corporate pirates are willing and more than ready to
intimidate, buy off, or destroy any and all critics. It is important
for us to realize the depth of evil we are dealing with here they
are willing to kill as many people as needed to accomplish their
It is shocking to realize that the very
entity that is supposed to be protecting us our government is
the very thing from which we need protection. It is shattering to
realize that our leaders are genuine psychopathic criminals who are
trying to take over our planet, impose full-spectrum dominance,
enact a new world order and centralize power and control. Instead of
this being a conspiracy theory, the evidence is all around us, as it
is everywhere we look if we have the eyes to see beyond the
carefully crafted and disseminated spell that is being perpetually
woven all around us.
What is happening in our world has more the "feeling" of an invasion
from a parallel universe than a physical coup d'etat. This is
because the intrusion is taking place on the plane of mind, and only
secondarily on the physical plane. If we could stop this covert
incursion into our minds it would be much easier to mitigate the
outer wars that plague our world.
These criminals clearly have way more power than we do in terms of
guns, tanks, media and technology, but they are no match for us if
we activate the inherent brilliance of our consciousness a force
with unlimited potential. Part of the spell they are casting is that
there's nothing we can do, that we are powerless to stop them from
doing whatever they want, like when Cheney mentioned it doesn't make
a difference what Congress or the American people want, this
administration is not going to be stopped from sending more troops
The Bush regime's worst nightmare is for us to wake up to
how we've been manipulated, hoodwinked and played by them like fools.
The last thing they want is for us to access the natural
intelligence inherent in being consciously aware, and connect with
each other through the open-heart of lucidity. The powers-that-be's
greatest fear is for us individually, as well as collectively, to
connect with our intrinsic God-given power to create.
Once we clearly see what is being perpetrated in our name, we can
come together and "conspire to co-inspire" so as to awaken and
mobilize our collective genius, which is a power greater than any
weapon of mass destruction. In actuality, our connecting in shared
lucidity is the antidote to all WMD's it is what I call a WMC a
"Weapon of Mass Consciousness". It is what becomes activated when
enough of us come together and see (C i.e., become conscious of)
what is happening.
Connecting with each other is crucially important, as the more of us
that consciously associate with each other - as if re-membering
(putting our "members" back together to form a unified body) - the
stronger the field of unified force that we are able to generate.
Once enough of us sync up, we become more able to collectively
invoke and channel through our expanded awareness a power that is
able to dis-arm any WMD: the power of consciousness infused with
wisdom and compassion.
Genuine compassion can be very fierce,
however, as it both demands and empowers us to come together and say
"No" to the evil being done in our name. We can step out of the
fear-based reality in which we appear to exist separately from each
other in any moment and consciously connect with each other through
the open-heart of lucidity. When we are truly serving what is best
for the whole for everyone a world-changing power becomes
available to us.
The solution to winning the war on consciousness is for us to
RECOGNIZE the nature of the war we are in, which can only happen
through the agency of our consciousness. Realizing that the true war
we are in is an assault on our own minds is the expansion of
consciousness which is itself simultaneously the solution. From a
deeper, more expansive perspective, the war on consciousness is
itself the very catalyst and instrument for consciousness to awaken
It is our turn to come together so as to render powerless these sick
criminals who have been terrorizing us. We can help each other to
access our intrinsic heart-centered power and collectively turn the
light of truth upon them so that they have no where to hide from
their lies and corruption.
For "truth", to quote the
infamous Nazi Hermann Goerring, is "the greatest enemy of
Bush and the private interests who keep
him in power and profit richly from his actions are absolutely
terrified of one thing - the truth. As the late Supreme Court
Justice Louis Brandeis said, "Sunshine is the best
disinfectant." Like pouring water on the Wicked Witch of the West in
"The Wizard of Oz", when the true light of awareness is shed on what
Bush and the real powers behind him are doing, their
illegitimate power over us is dis-spelled as the illusion it always
