Regardless of where you stand politically, it is hard to deny the cycle of abuse that has been perpetrated against the American people for the last few decades. The cycle of abuse I am referring to is the endless cycle of government lies, spying, false flags, erosion of civil liberties, corny capitalism, market manipulations, Ponzi schemes, currency debasement, and destruction of the American standard of living, …just to name a few. More and more, and day by day, many of these crimes against us are being recognized as the amount of Americas becoming awake and aware is undoubtedly on the rise. Although most of the sheep still can’t connect the dots, millions of Americans are mad as hell. Congressional approval ratings are lowest in history, and Obama has his hands full juggling scandal after scandal.
There are some people who are going to take issue with what I am about to say here, but it will be difficult for them to say I am completely wrong, and that my observations are baseless. One of the “side effects” of your awakening and leaving the matrix of our criminal government and its current debt based Ponzi scheme is …Paranoia. We have been lied to, and taken advantage of so much that it’s difficult, if not impossible to trust in anything we are told by our Government and “The Powers That Be”.
There are people that will argue that “paranoia” is the wrong term to describe what is being described here. I don’t have a problem with anyone calling me, or telling me that I am “paranoid”. Especially someone that by my standards is “ASLEEP”. It’s been my experience that a little paranoia has never killed anyone. Paranoia has lots of side effects in itself, both positive and negative. On the positive side, paranoia makes you more alert, and more cautious. It may heighten your senses. On the negative side, it may cause you to be distrustful to the wrong person, or it may have negative consequences on how you live your life. Regardless of what word you use to label this reaction to constantly being lied to an abused, you have to recognize the symptoms, and limit negative effects on your life. It’s easier said than done.
“Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you.” – Woody Allen
If you have ever had the experience of interacting with a person or an animal that has been abused, then you know what I am talking about. It’s difficult to touch or physically approach an abused person or animal. They wince in anticipation of pain when someone approaches to touch them. On a lighter note, another analogy I am going to use here: (SGT Ladies don’t get upset with me) is breast augmentation. If you are a guy, once you see big breasts on a woman and you know they are fake, it causes you to wonder the next time you see a woman with big breasts: You wonder to yourself: “Are they real, or are they fake?” I am joking a bit here, but hopefully you get the picture.
Everything we are told by our Government or the “Powers That Be” from the details of an “official story” about an investigation to keeping your existing health insurance benefits has become suspect. Unfortunately, if you are awake, there is NOTHING, no information, no directive, no story, and no explanation of ANYTHING that is disseminated to the citizenry by our Government that should now be above suspicion. Is that “Paranoia”? You can call it anything you want; as long as you realize that we are constantly lied to and we must now question everything. Anytime we are told that something is as stated, it usually is the exact opposite. Example: The” Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009” was exactly the opposite of what it sounds like. It allowed the banks to screw over its customers, raise or modify rates, switch terms, and close customer accounts. The “Affordable Care Act” has resulted in such a mess it’s not even necessary to elaborate. We could go on and on with example after example.
It is NOT wrong for people to feel and think this way. We have been abused enough to have built that reflex and reaction into the way we process information from “TPTB”. However, some people have just accepted this to be the norm in life. Their attitude is “If the Government is talking, they are lying.” At this point in history, you can’t really blame people for being naturally distrustful of their governments.
In my opinion, this Paranoia which has become instilled in those awake and aware Americans is being used to the advantage of “TPTB”. They love it when people from our camp jump onto an event and call it a “false flag”. It makes us look like “conspiracy theorists”, which the lame stream media takes every opportunity to mock and ridicule. The “TPTB” lie to us, and then throw our distrust back into our faces and call us “paranoid” or “conspiracy theorists” in return! How convenient for them. How sinister.
Over the last year, whenever a new mass shooting occurs, I get emails and phone calls from people asking me if I think this or that incident was a “false flag” or not. Before I say yes or no, my answer has always been “If the media, which is controlled by TPTB, is focusing / obsessing on an incident, then there is a reason for it.” That does not make it a “false flag” and that does not make us “paranoid”. Instead of being paranoid we need to analyze the focus on the event or incident. I don’t always think we are being lied to, but I do believe the “spin doctors” are always at work. Not every mass shooting is a “false flag”. However, I do believe that most mass shooting incidents are spun for maximum effect towards the advantage of any agenda the “TPTB” wants to push or focus on. If some lunatic shoots up a movie theatre, the spin will be that we need more gun control and why we need it now. I said “most”, NOT all incidents are spun, because the media does not pick up on, or focus on “all” of them. The incidents they don’t focus on are probably more difficult to spin, as the circumstances surrounding the incident are undesirable. How often do you hear the mass media mention legal gun owners using deadly force with a firearm to defend themselves or their property? Never! Yet, it happens every day.
In my opinion, instead of having our paranoia causing us to focus on details of an incident and trying to prove it’s a “false flag’, we need to focus on why, and for what cause incidents are being used and spun for. When we can do this as a society, we are far less likely to be lied to and manipulated by weapons of mass distraction from TPTB and the mass media they control.
In closing, I do think that there is a positive side to all of the abuse and lies. What the TPTB have done by instilling this distrust and paranoia in our citizenry will ultimately blow up in their faces. “The Powers That Be” have forced us to re-calibrate our bullshit meters. Instead of being “paranoid”, people are learning to think for themselves. They are choosing different sources of news and information (Go SGT Report & Alt Media!!!) They are abandoning the mocking bird main stream media sources that they no longer trust. They are learning some critical thinking skills, and learning to question what they are told, instead of swallowing government disseminated information as blind truth.
Best Wishes & Stay Safe My Friends!

[Ed. Note: At the exact moment I finished editing this piece for Mark on Monday evening, I saw this comment post to the site from ‘Old Phart’:]
A list of Obama’s lies (not comprehensive):
#1 “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.”
#2 “My administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government.”
#3 “We agree on reforms that will finally reduce the costs of health care. Families will save on their premiums…”
#4 “I don’t want to pit Red America against Blue America. I want to be the president of the United States of America.”
#5 “We’ve got shovel-ready projects all across the country that governors and mayors are pleading to fund. And the minute we can get those investments to the state level, jobs are going to be created.”
#6 “And we will pursue the housing plan I’m outlining today. And through this plan, we will help between 7 and 9 million families restructure or refinance their mortgages so they can afford—avoid foreclosure.”
#7 “I will sign a universal health-care bill into law by the end of my first term as president that will cover every American and cut the cost of a typical family’s premium by up to $2,500 a year.”
#8 “We reject the use of national security letters to spy on citizens who are not suspected of a crime.”
#9 “For people with insurance, the only impact of the health-care law is that their insurance is stronger, better, and more secure than it was before. Full stop. That’s it. They don’t have to worry about anything else.”
#10 “We will close the detention camp in Guantanamo Bay, the location of so many of the worst constitutional abuses in recent years.”

#14 “We reject sweeping claims of ‘inherent’ presidential power.”
#15 “Will eliminate all income taxation of seniors making less than $50,000 per year. This will eliminate taxes for 7 million seniors — saving them an average of $1,400 a year– and will also mean that 27 million seniors will not need to file an income tax return at all.”
#16 “We support constitutional protections and judicial oversight on any surveillance program involving Americans.”
#17 “If we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do. I will get our troops home, we will end this war. You can take that to the bank.”

#19 “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”
#20 “We have a choice in this country. We can accept a politics that breeds division and conflict and cynicism…. That is one option. Or, at this moment, in this election, we can come together and say, ‘Not this time….’”
#21 “We’ve got to spend some money now to pull us out of this recession. But as soon as we’re out of this recession, we’ve got to get serious about starting to live within our means, instead of leaving debt for our children and our grandchildren and our great-grandchildren.”
#22 “[T]oday I’m pledging to cut the deficit we inherited in half by the end of my first term in office. This will not be easy. It will require us to make difficult decisions and face challenges we’ve long neglected. But I refuse to leave our children with a debt that they cannot repay – and that means taking responsibility right now, in this administration, for getting our spending under control.”
#23 “I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear that I will execute the office of president of the United States faithfully, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the constitution of the United States.”
#24 “My fellow Americans…”Help us spread the ANTIDOTE to corporate propaganda.
