Eradicate the Constitution

When I started thinking about Trump lacking enough support in Congress to fight off Impeachment if he manages to win, I started thinking about the early 1970s —- comparing it to today — and reading about that time. 

It’s highly interesting.

I noted at this first post how there were secret plans and counter-plans behind the scenes to prevent Nixon from calling on the Military for support against the effort of part of the Elites to throw him out of office despite popular support (as viewed by his massive landslide victory in 72).

Today, I’ll quote from the book The New World Order: An Ancient Plan of Secret Societies. — Concerning the effort that went on for a decade after Nixon was forced to resign. An effort to get enough states to call for a Constitutional Convention to radically alter the document.

It is not mere coincidence that in 1975, less than one year after the resignation of President Nixon, the first six states passed resolutions calling for a Constitutional Convention. Four years later, thirty states had passed resolutions. But in the decade of the 1980s, only two more states joined in, while two others, Florida and Alabama, withdrew their calls after citizens became aroused.

James MacGregor Burns, a board member of the lead organization trying to bring about a Constitutional Convention, known as Committee on Constitutional Systems (CCS), made this shocking admission in urging his forces onward: Let us face reality. The framers [of the Constitution] have simply been too shrewd for us. They have outwitted us. They designed separate institutions that cannot be unified by mechanical linkages, frail bridges, [or] tinkering. If we are to turn the founders upside down we must directly confront the Constitutional structure they erected.

This new constitution proposed that: The government would be empowered to abridge freedom of ex-pression, communication, movement and assembly in a “declared emergency.” The practice of religion would be considered a “privilege.”

Religion would become a privilege, not a right…

A move to Impeach Trump within months of him winning an election would cause the biggest Constitutional Crisis since Nixon.

It would be bigger — because back then – the Press and the Government enjoyed a lot more esteem among average Americans than they do today. Today, both institutions rate in the single digits in approval polls…

I believe it is in this context that you should view moves like President Obama announcing Transgenders in the Military and giving them medical priority just before the 4th of July!!

33 Senators for Trump?

Can Trump Survive Impeachment if he Wins?

When I realized Trump was unlikely to survive an Impeachment attempt, I started thinking about prior times a President has been hard pressed by a run at Impeachment.

Rahm Emanuel – Order to Chaos to New Order

Below, I’ll post a link to Mr. Emanuel explaining how (generating) a Crisis allows Power Players to push the nation much further than it would have been willing to go otherwise…

What a Coup can do for Us

What were the conditions in the early 70s when Nixon was run out of the White House and the society almost descended into Civil War:

I noticed with Nixon – He produced The Nixon Shock in 1971 by taking the $ off the Gold Standard.

– He was demonized by the Press, Academia, and Hollywood.

– He was so popular among the people, he won a massive landslide re-election victory in 1972.

– By Inauguration Day of March 73, his administration was in a constant fight to remain in office.

– By Aug 74, both the President and Vice President had been forced to resign, because they could not survive an Impeachment Process…

I’m in the first third of a book New World Order: An Ancient Plan of Secret Socities. It begins with what it calls an “Almost Coup” Nixon might have used to remain in power.

I took it a different way…

What about the Right-Wing Military?

I wondered why the man Nixon tapped in 73 to first head the CIA and then Defense Department — went around conspiring with some members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff — to have commanders prepared to rush their troops to DC if Nixon called on the Military to stay in office?

The very same Sec of Defense who was fired by President Ford later for refusing to follow orders more than once…

Secretary of Defense James Schlesinger had taken special measures to protect the military chain of command should any illegal orders come from President Nixon.

Defense Secretary James Schlesinger requested a tight watch in the military chain of command to ensure that no extraordinary orders went out from the White House during the period of uncertainty.

…Nevertheless, Defense Department officials said the word went out that no commanders of any forces should carry out orders which came from the White House, or elsewhere, outside the formal chain of command structure.

Defense Schlesinger investigated how quickly the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division could be brought to DC from Fort Bragg, North Carolina to counterbalance Marine contingents loyal to Nixon.

Mutiny

How could the Commander and Chief of the Armed Forces be breaking the law by going outside the chain of command?

Well, the obvious answer is — Secretary Schlesinger must have gone to members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and ranking officers in the Armed Services —- to get assurances they would not follow any orders from Nixon Schlesinger disagreed with…

…Thus forcing the higher ranking President of the United States to break the chain of command to go around their obstruction – whether lawful or mutinous.

Cover All Your Basis in a Soft Coup

So — it seems to me — whoever wanted Nixon out — had key Social Institutions — The Press, Hollywood, Academia — erupt in a non-stop war against a person they’d long demonized.

Whatever members of Congress they did not have on board with Impeachment – the effort to turn X% of the millions of American who voted for Nixon against him —- would turn the pressure up on Congressmen who need votes to survive…

Trump-ed?

The US Government has been preparing for possible large scale unrest since at least the 2008 Economic Meltdown — because they say we were facing a 2nd Great Depression that would make the 1st look like child’s play…

I would be a pretty penny discussions have gone on about what to do if Trump becomes President…

…They have the numbers in Congress to get rid of him.

They’d have to worry about — Blowback from the people who voted for him — and — the Military.

So – if they keep the society on edge in a high boil between now and inauguration day, we’ll be exhausted and willing to accept anything to bring Tranquility back…

…Thanks Mr. Emanuel…

Meanwhile, President Obama has already been fragmenting the Military by replacing generals, making non-conventional picks for command positions, and announcing Transgenders gaining medical priority to transition their sex the same week of the 4th of July…

Germanic Epicenter…?

It’s interesting to see Germany being thrown back into the center of upheaval in the West…

From before the first two World Wars, it and its rivalry with France and other European Empires made it the focal point of massive upheaval.

In the Cold War – it was the Tripwire – with NATO facing off in West Germany with the Soviets in the East — with Berlin too — guaranteeing that any mistake or stupidity on either side would —- start a chain reaction into WWIII just like WWI…

But, then the Cold War came to a surprising end.

The Berlin Wall fell and the two Germanies reunited.  Hurray!!

The Hard Road to World Order (1974) – Notes

The Hard Road to World Order by Richard Gardner of the Council of Foreign Relations

After outlining how the current state of the world at the writing of the paper (1974) is far from a willingness to cooperate on global initiatives like a World Judicial Court or UN-related orgs, he notes:

In short, the “house of world order” will have to be built from the bottom up rather than top down…but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.

Of course. When the majority of people your individual “world leaders” are supposed to “represent” —- hate the idea of World Government by elites — you have to think outside the box of Democracy if you want to gain Power to Control…

Can [world government] bring mankind into the twenty-first century with reasonable prospects for peace, welfare and human dignity? The argument thus far suggests it better had, for there seems to be no alternative.

That’s interesting.

Conspiracy Theory? – Or – Just what Everyone was Saying…?

I wrote this post pointing out a common example of Conspiracy Theory-ish claims that don’t look too crazy — if you have some familiarity with Philosophy and Science and Literature from the past…

Just look at a more contemporary phenomenon: When you see people everywhere – from Entertainment big shots to Power-Players in Washington DC to comic books — using references like — Trailer Trash – White Trash – and other variations of Redneck — You kinda get the feeling — something in the culture of that day — has a massive hatred for the Working Class – and more specifically – those with a particular skin color….

…I feel I know enough to say with at least a little confidence — Such contempt expressed like that isn’t limited to just low-income white people who happen to live in a trailer or trailer park…  That if you are black or Asian and live in one — they look down on you too… And that it is highly likely some amount of contempt is felt for all low-income workers and household —– no matter where you live or what your race, religion, gender, or whatever might be…

Importance

If you think this is just — sorta — name calling.  It can be more than that…

I’m not going to write a long post on this – but – if you were around in the 1970s – you’d have heard a lot about —- The Coming Global Catastrophe of Over-Population and Resource Scarcity…

— It was written about much in Intellectual-type material from Government Studies to Think-Tank stuff to the more literary products of the Intelligencia…

If you are cynical – you might start summing it up something like “Poor people take up too much Oxygen…”

And if you think I’m joking:

Slaves and Profitability…

This is no science fiction. The Harvard-trained neurobiologist was taking advantage of one of his own inventions, a device called Thync, which promises to help users activate their body’s “natural state of energy or calm” — for a retail price of a mere $199. (Washington Post)

What does this wonder-gadget using electroshock or magnetisms to produce “happiness” have to do with Caitlyn Jenner, Obamacare, and Hippies?

Much – if you think about it.

The “natural” state of the body is that – when you push it too far – it fatigues – when you stress it out too much – you discover there are things you are doing , or that are being done to you, that are not in your best interest. Pain, stress, fatigue, and “negative” outcomes of stimulation are not in themselves – bad. They are indicators.

The “body’s natural state of energy or calm” is an advertising slogan to norm a product and a behavior.

Let Science take away your pain. It can do miracles today.

Can’t afford it? Let the government help you out. Happiness is guaranteed in the Declaration of Independence, isn’t it?

If an unwanted pregnancy gets in your way, if the astronomical cost of maintaining your mental health is preventing you from getting an abortion, if your psychologist or school teacher helps you understand you were born in the wrong body, let Science produce your salvation, and get your insurance company to pay for it, or all tax payers.

What can be wrong with Mind over Matter if it produces – Happiness? There can never be too much of a good thing, right?

The Counter-Culture in the 60s and 70s thought so.

It was the first big push to combine Sex with Pharmaceuticals and Profit. All three produced psychological and physical dependence attacking the pleasure centers of the brain for a price. That sounds nice until you remember the toll it unleashed on countless individuals and society itself.

Discoveries made in the 1950s initially suggested that rodents could not stop electrically stimulating parts of their brain, mainly the nucleus accumbens, which was theorized to produce great pleasure.[1] Further investigations revealed that the septum pellucidium and the hypothalamus can also be targets for self-stimulation.[2] More recent research has shown that the so-called pleasure electrodes lead only a form of wanting or motivation to obtain the stimulation, rather than pleasure. (Wikipedia on what we learned about “pleasure” from the Skinner Box)

There are always hidden consequences when the reality of nature is warped too much at the hands of mankind – Science-driven or not.

THYNC and Muse are two wearable headbands that use electrical nerve stimulation and an EEG respectively to read your mind. THYNC looks to alters your mood, while Muse reads your thoughts to help in meditation.

There’s real, peer-reviewed science behind the theory driving these devices. It involves stimulating key regions of the brain — with currents or magnetic fields — to affect emotions and physical well-being. It isn’t too different from how electroshock therapy works to counter certain mental illnesses and how deep-brain stimulation smooths motion disorders such as  multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. Indeed, recent studies have looked at the technique as a possible treatment for stroke, autism and anorexia.

If grandma is getting on your nerves, or you made the mistake of not aborting your autistic child, hook her up to the jumper cables and let Science “cure” her… We’ve been doing it to “normalize” mental patients for over a century. What could be wrong with that…?

You aren’t against the Pursuit of Happiness, are you?

Lots of people and companies are making investments, too, from Silicon Valley venture capitalists to large pharmaceutical companies and even the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. And according to the start-ups selling the products, their technology appears to be safe and effective based on certain, very controlled tests.

Rampant drug addiction, a “spike” in violent crime becoming the new “normal”, and an equal spike in STDs – deadly and otherwise – came along with the benefits of the Hippie Culture of Peace, Drugs, and Rock n Roll.

“Turn on, tune in, drop out” is a counterculture-era phrase popularized by Timothy Leary in 1966. In 1967 Leary spoke at the Human Be-In, a gathering of 30,000 hippies in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco and phrased the famous words, “Turn on, tune in, drop out” (Wikipedia)

Maybe if the gurus of Well-Being back then had had the technology of today, everyone would be as happy as they promised when they sought to cure all social ills via narcotics, entertainment, and the eradication of moral norms deemed no longer acceptable in a more Enlightened Age?

Or, maybe the consequences of ignoring natural limitations and signals your body is trying to communicate from inside our thick skulls could turn out to be just as drastic and devastating as physical and psychological dependence on drugs, rapid spread of disease, and break down of the family have been since the 60s?

One thing is clear — a handful of individuals are going to get fabulously rich – no matter what happens…

Better Living Thru Chemistry has Failed – so…

These gadgets claim to be able to make you have more willpower, think more creatively and even jump higher. One day, their makers say, the technology may even succeed in delivering on the holy grail of emotions: happiness. (Washington Post)

The phrase “Better Living Through Chemistry” was used on products that were not affiliated with DuPont to circumvent trademark infringement This transmutation is now more commonly used than the original. This statement is used for commentary on several different topics, from the promotion of prescription or recreational drugs, to the praise of chemicals and plastics, to the sarcastic criticism of the same.

Fascism

One reason I’m ambivalent about the “pros” of Legalizing Drugs is — what are you goanna do – make em free?

Drugs are about Money + Control.

Get the masses hooked on something. If it costs money, you profit. If it encourages dependence – halleluiah…!

If it encourages dependence on the Government —- The New Age has Arrived…!!

Entertainment

Control of the Entertainment Industry is a far more chancy way to control the masses than dependence on Pharmaceuticals or Straight Out Narcotics…

The power of money and cost of production and distribution favor the consumers too much. (That’s why the “artist” and “patrons of art” have always decried Mass Consumption of entertainment as “base”, “unsophisticated”, and “lower art”.)

Health Care

Extreme pricing in the Health Care Industry — or turning it over to the Government — makes slaves of the masses much more easily…

Insurance Companies offer Salvation – but its a form of Medieval Indulgences. — It’s legalized Extortion. Pay the mafia don a certain sum every month, or when you break your leg physically – the Health “Care” Industry will break every bone in your body – financially…

Plus – Insurance distorts the pricing mechanism of capitalism – causing prices to soar – which produces the Mafia/Extortion effect…

Drugs

But making them Physically + Psychologically Dependant on Industry and/or Government is by far the best avenue for – Control…

A History of Post-Modern Slavery

They tried mixing Drug + Sex Culture in the 60s thru 80s – but it produced negative consequences at a time the Elites in favor of it —– did not dominate Education, Politics, and News…. though they did control Entertainment and sold Sexual Dysfunction + Addiction to Narcotics and Psychedelics as —- Liberating and Cool…

Focus on Youth — The Communists Understood That…

They did have professors preaching this — but they didn’t have the kind of Control of primary and secondary education like they do now.

No More Family

That is why they now have the ability to bypass not just the Church but Parents as well —- as they condition kids to believe —- absolutely anything they want them to believe —- like —- pronouns are evil – (Gender-specific and gender-neutral pronouns) – and sexual organs, naturally produced hormones, and sexual reproduction — are meaningless.  Meaning is whatever you want it to be + Science will help you reshape “reality” any which way “you” want it —- after they’ve brainwashed you…

Drugs Again

But if you really want to —- own the masses —– make them slaves to addiction…

Create Products that – produce Happiness.

If they end up coming with Harmful Side-Affects – make sure they produce as much Physical and/or Psychological Dependence —- as possible…

Then you have your slaves…
