Synchronicity is truly a divine thing, isn't it?
I was just thinking on Monday evening about all those unsung heroes. The many annonymous humans who died for and with their particular brand of Truth. I sent gratitude and deep thankfulness to all those who lived their lives to help us in our quest for freedom in whichever arena. And to the ones still standing, still fighting, to bring us Truths we can use.
And then I saw Zen Gardner's tribute to David Icke.
Of course, he was the first person that popped into my head while contemplating all this. He refused the 'soul sell out' offers that must have come his way from the Illuminati. Which must have brought with it troubles of its own. Yet, he's still in business, seemingly stronger than ever and has accomplished great works on this plane.
In the late 90's and on one of his earlier global lecture tours here, I was privileged enough to interview him and see him in action. And like many have said before me, nothing in my life was ever the same after that encounter. It was a massive turning point for me.
Keep on keeping on David. Your consciousness has affected all of ours in unimaginably liberating ways.
The David Icke Effect
Wednesday, May 29th, 2013.
by Zen Gardner
One figure in the alternative or Truth movement, if you will, that I deeply respect and who has influenced me probably the most profoundly is David Icke. His brave, bold, even brazen stance and proclamation of the fundamental principles of Truth and Love and his always upbeat, empowering conclusions have so enlivened and influenced my personal awakening I cannot begin to articulate it.
But I’ll try. I’ve just felt moved recently to give this brave, big-hearted man my personal thanks and appreciation.
His story is each of our stories. The ridicule, the change of paradigm, the battle to inform. His example has led the way while many others were stuttering with uncertainty. Not that anyone is better than another, but when someone has the guts to keep on against unspeakable odds in a very public setting of scoffing naysayers, I think that’s pretty damn remarkable.
The Icke Effect
Be it compelled, propelled, repelled, or impelled, you won’t be the same after confronting David’s information and passion. I have one dear alternative activist friend who told me he was just plain shocked and knocked back by a David Icke book he read early on during his awakening. Understandably. The information he freely offers is some pretty amazing fodder for the mind and soul.
This remarkable friend whom I know, love and implicitly trust eventually became co-creator of one of the most passionate, respectable and well informed alternative websites on the internet. The rebound has been phenomenal. He, of course, is an avid reader and researcher of his own right, but when discussing this with him a couple of years ago that story stuck in my mind.
This is not a unique event. I’ve spoken to many who’ve read David’s books that were clearly having their calcified minds busted up and awakened and 3rd eyes squeegeed, as dear Bill Hicks would say.
I’ve met many others who’ve also been “challenged” by the Icke effect, usually citing the reptilian agenda as their stumbling block. Good. I’m glad there’s something to sort the wheat from the chaff, as they say. If one thing anyone says turns someone off to a resource, they deserve to be diverted in my opinion. They don’t grasp the deeper magnificence of what we’re staring at, and are looking at the button off Mutt’s vest at the least to justify their own fears or narrowed perspective or lack of aware understanding.
Fine. Can’t see the forest through the trees, in other words. They’ve got some learning to do, but that’s how it works. A few more rounds and maybe things will make more sense to them. Hard to say, everyone is so different and we’re all on so many different levels.
But don’t start with the condemning. You have no flipping idea what you’re talking about.
We’re talking heart here.
David taught me a lot of things, and continues to do so. He and others took their knowledge to the streets. Like he says, he put out 3 to 5 chairs for a talk he would give at the beginning of his journey, sometimes a group he was hoping to address was the “size of a phone box”. That’s commitment to conveying your message.
That he has the viewership he has today I doubt was his intention. His intention was to get the message out there and let it have its effect.
And that’s what’s happening.
David’s example of standing up for the oppressed is, to me, something to live up to. He relentlessly exposes not just the overall elite scumbags, but specifically targets the horrific child abusers, the Zionist bankster warlords, and the political sell outs, to name a few categories. And with such clarity and persistence it is nothing less than a dogged commitment that we all should emulate if we’re serious about seeing some change and defending the defenseless.
And always with an emphasis on infinite conscious awareness and its profound answer to everything. I admire that so much and have sought to live up to this type of conviction in my efforts to contribute to the awakening.
And David taught me so much about this. How it applies, how it permeates everything, how it affects our vision of everything about us. We’re here to help each other and bring the light of Truth to a darkened world. That’s the call of conscious awareness, the yearning of our Creative Source. He reflects that awareness as I and many others also endeavor to do.
Thank you, brother. You won’t take credit as you, too, are just doing what you’re supposed to be doing. But I want to encourage you and heartily thank you that the ball you are rolling is having the desired effect.
Keep On Keeping On
As they chanted during the Chicago demonstrations in the 60′s while the police were tearing into the kids on live TV, “The whole world is watching! The whole world is watching!”
Big brother thinks he can shut the cameras down, but he can’t shut down the indomitable spirit of an awakened, conscious free humanity.
That fire will never go out – it will only continue to spread. Thank you for doing what you do David Icke, and to all others doing the same.
We all are the true Dream Team!
To a truly great man, with all my heart,
In sincere loving gratitude,

Synchronicity is truly a divine thing, isn't it?
Tuesday, May 28, 2013

May 24, 2013
In the 1950s, before television had numbed minds and turned them into jelly, there was a growing sense of: the Individual versus the Corporate State.
Something needed to be done. People were fitting into slots. They were surrendering their lives in increasing numbers. They were carving away their own idiosyncrasies and their independent ideas.
Collectivism wasn’t merely a Soviet paradigm. It was spreading like a fungus at every level of American life. It might fly a political banner here and there, but on the whole it was a social phenomenon and nightmare.
Television then added fuel to the fire. Under the control of psyops experts, it became, as the 1950s droned on, the facile barrel of a weapon:
“What’s important is the group, the family, peers. Conform. Give in. Bathe in the great belonging…”
Recognize that every message television imparts is a proxy, a fabrication, a simulacrum, an imitation of life one step removed. It isn’t people talking in a park or on a street corner or in a saloon or a barber shop or a meeting hall or a church.
It’s happening on a screen, and that makes it both fake and more real than real.
Therefore, the argument that television can impart important values, if “directed properly,” is specious from the ground up. Television tells lies in its very being. And because it appears to supersede the real, it hypnotizes.
When this medium also broadcasts words and images of belonging and the need to belong, it’s engaged in revolutionary social engineering.
The very opposite of living as a strong, independent, and powerful individual is the cloying need to belong. And the latter is what television ceaselessly promotes.
This is no accident. After World War 2, psychological-warfare operatives turned their attention to two long-term strategies: inculcating negative stereotypes of distant populations, to rationalize covert military plans to conquer and build an empire for America; and disseminating the unparalleled joys of disappearing into a group existence.
When, for example, television promotes “family,” it’s all on the level of fictitiously happy, desperate, yearning, last-chance, problem-resolving, melted-down, trance-inducing, gooey family.
This isn’t, by any stretch, an actual human value. Whether it’s the suburban-lawn family in an ad for the wonders of a toxic medical drug, or the mob family going to the mattresses to fend off a rival, it’s fantasy time in the land of mind control.
Television has carried its mission forward. The consciousness of the Individual versus the State has turned into: love the State. Love the State as family.
The political Left of the 1960s, who rioted against Democratic President Lyndon Johnson, at the Century Plaza Hotel, and ended his hopes to run again in 1968…that Left is now all about the State and its glories and gifts. The collective.
A great deal of the television coverage of mass shootings is now dedicated to bringing home the spurious message: we all grieve together and heal together.
In the only study I have been able to find, Wictionary partially surveys the scripts of all television shows from the year 2006, to analyze the words most frequently broadcast to viewers in America.
Out of 29,713,800 words, including the massively used “a,” “an,” “the,” “you,” “me,” and the like, the word “home” ranks 179 from the top. “Mom” is 218. “Together” is 222. “Family” is 250.
This usage reflects an unending psyop.
Are you with the family or not? Are you with the group, the collective, or not? Those are the blunt parameters.
“When you get right down to it, all you have is family.” “Our team is really a family.” “You’re deserting the family.” “You fight for the guy next to you.” “Our department is like a family.” “Here at Corporation X, we’re a family.” “Above all, this is a community.”
The committee, the group, the company, the sector, the planet, the family.
The goal? Submerge the individual and tie him inexorably to a group.
Individual achievement, imagination, creative power? Not on the agenda. Something for the dustbin of history.
All you need to do is fall into the arms of a group. After that, everything is settled. You can care exclusively about the collective.
Aldous Huxley, Brave New World: “‘Ninety-six identical twins working ninety-six identical machines’! The voice was almost tremulous with enthusiasm. ‘You really know where you are. For the first time in history.’”
George Orwell, 1984: “The two aims of the Party are to conquer the whole surface of the earth and to extinguish once and for all the possibility of independent thought.”
Television seeks to emphasize one decision: inclusion or exclusion. Exclusion is portrayed as the only condition that is possible if you aren’t part of the group. And exclusion carries the connotation of exile, excommunication, and criminality.
The soap opera is the apotheosis of television. The long-running characters in Anytown are irreversibly enmeshed in one another’s lives. There’s no escape. And with that comes mind-numbing meddling.
“I’m just trying to help you realize we all love you (in chains).”
“Your father, rest his soul, would never have wanted you to do this to yourself…”
“How dare you set yourself apart from us. Who do you think you are?”
The Matrix Revealed
Of the three elite network anchors, the one who fictionally conveys the sense that “we’re all in this together” is Brian Williams (NBC). He’s also the number-one-rated anchor on the evening news.
Am I saying that no groups anywhere can achieve important objectives? Of course not. I’m talking about a state of mind wherein the individual surrenders his own life-force.
There is an indissoluble link between the artifact called “we” and “limited context.” This is precisely what television news gives to the public. With each story that fails to explore the deeper players and their motives, the news speaks to a collective consciousness, which is to say, the sharing of a fabrication.
What “we” shares is foreshortened perspective, lies, misdirection, and superficial gloss. Those qualities are built for the group, and the group digests them automatically.
The group needs something to focus on, to claim is of the greatest significance. So it settles on those deceptions fed to it. It works with those deceptions, rearranges them, voices them, troubles itself over them, massages them, sculpts them, complains about them, praises them.
Retired psyops specialist Ellis Medavoy once said to me, “I think we’ve reached the point where the collective doesn’t even need a leader anymore. It can take all its cues from television.”
For some people, “we” has a fragrant scent, until they get down in the trenches with it. There they discover odd odors and postures and mutations. They find self-distorted creatures running around doing bizarre things with an exhibitionist flair.
The night becomes long. The ideals melt. The level of intelligence required to inhabit this cave-like realm is lower than expected, much lower.
Perceptions formerly believed to be the glue that holds this territory together begin to crack and fall apart, and all that is left is a grim determination to see things through.
As the night moves into its latter stages, some participants come to know that all their activity is taking place in a chimerical universe.
It is as if reality has been constructed to yield up gibberish.
Whose idea was it to become deaf, dumb, and blind in the first place?
The heart and soul of THE MATRIX REVEALED are the text interviews I conducted with Matrix-insiders, who have first-hand knowledge of how the major illusions of our world are put together. One of those Matrix-insiders is ELLIS MEDAVOY, master of PR, propaganda, and deception, who worked for key controllers in the medical and political arenas. 28 interviews, 290 pages.
And then perhaps one person in the cave suddenly says: I EXIST.
That’s starts a cacophony of howling.
The spell is being broken.
People dimly wonder whether, beyond this night, there is another whole world where individuals live, where some of them do, in fact, join together, but not in a desolate way.
Where individuals finally separate from the sticky substance of coordinated defeat.
The “we” that television gives us is a fiction designed to make the independent individual extinct. That is its job.
In the aftermath of the 1963 assassination of JFK and the 1995 bombing of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City, the covert theme was the same: a lone individual did this.
A lone individual, detached from the group, did this. See what happens when the group is rejected? Lone individuals are really no different than individuals. They are people who left the fold. They wandered from the communal hearth. They thought for themselves. This is what happens when individuals assert their independent existence. They become killers. They lose their way. They break the sacred bond. They are heretics who fall away from the collective.
In 1995, after the Oklahoma City Bombing, President Bill Clinton made a speech to the nation. He rescued his presidency by essentially saying, “Come home to the government. We will protect you and save you.”
He framed the crime in those terms. The individual versus the collective.
Of course, he was an individual who had chosen to be a mouthpiece and a middleman for the elite players who run the collective from above. But that went unnoticed.
The strongest argument against the free and independent and powerful individual, and in favor of the collective is, simply: the collective has advanced to such a degree that there is no going back; the individual can’t win; the battle is over.
All I can say is, I’ve never accepted an argument on that basis, and never will. The liberation of the individual has existed as an aim since the dawn of time on this planet. That aim will not vanish.
Why? Because underneath all the programs for mind control, there is, obviously, something to control. Otherwise, why bother? The deeper you go in discovering what “must be controlled,” the more freedom and power and imagination you encounter in the individual.
There is no limit. These three qualities are endless.
It may not seem so. It may seem that all the propaganda about the inherent weakness and smallness of the human being is accurate. But that is a false dream.
The reality is far different.
A million psyops won’t change that reality.
Exit From the Matrix
Finally, here is a 1980 quote from author Philip K Dick. He is writing poignantly about another titan of science fiction, Robert Heinlein. The relevance of his words to the subject of this article? There are probably a number of interpretations. I won’t try to flesh it out. I’ll leave it to you to decide:
“Several years ago, when I was ill, Heinlein offered his help, anything he could do, and we had never met; he would phone me to cheer me up and see how I was doing. He wanted to buy me an electric typewriter, God bless him—one of the few true gentlemen in this world. I don’t agree with any ideas he puts forth in his writing, but that is neither here nor there. One time when I owed the IRS a lot of money and couldn’t raise it, Heinlein loaned the money to me. I think a great deal of him and his wife; I dedicated a book to them in appreciation. Robert Heinlein is a fine-looking man, very impressive and very military in stance; you can tell he has a military background, even to the haircut. He knows I’m a flipped-out freak and still he helped me and my wife when we were in trouble. That is the best in humanity, there; that is who and what I love.”
Okay, I can’t resist giving you one more from Philip Dick. I don’t agree with the “motive” part of the quote, but everything else? Perfect.
“Because today we live in a society in which spurious realities are manufactured by the media, by governments, by big corporations, by religious groups, political groups…So I ask, in my writing, What is real? Because unceasingly we are bombarded with pseudo-realities manufactured by very sophisticated people using very sophisticated electronic mechanisms. I do not distrust their motives; I distrust their power. They have a lot of it. And it is an astonishing power: that of creating whole universes, universes of the mind. I ought to know. I do the same thing.”
The question is, in gaining freedom from these pseudo-realities, does the process happen for everyone at once, or is it one individual at a time? The answer is clear, and it tells us a great deal about the illusion of the collective.
