Thank you for posting this! I’ve been waiting all my life for the truth about this guy to go mainstream.
Wow. Thank you for posting this!
Great to start seeing who is pulling which strings and why. I still don’t believe leaving the loonies in charge of the asylum is a good plan but perhaps there are more layers yet to be revealed.

October 13, 2013 In the interest of complete transparency regarding
the ever increasing attempt to conflate the OPPT (which is a
reconciled trust in any case – HOW MANY TIMES DO WE HAVE TO REPEAT
THAT?) with the actions of Swissindo. I am publishing this
conversation with Ben Fulford regarding the recent Dutchsinse video
claiming the OPPT asked him to sign an oath in exchange for huge
sums of money. The OPPT simply isn’t doing that.
Whomever is doing that, is not the OPPT. It
could very well be Swissindo (that has yet to be confirmed) and
those in the alternative media they recruited secretly as an
advisory council (under nondisclosure agreements) from the
volunteers who had been working for the OPPT in the first part of
the year. This has been unfolding for a number of
months, at least since April. Swissindo has approached…

Please click the link below to read the whole article on Truthout. I am posting a few quotes excerpted from it because it is such a wonderfully succinct explanation of how so many myths about government are false.
In order to solve our problems we have to see them clearly-going on our prejudices has obviously brought us to complete impasse.
(Excerpts below this line)
The argument goes like this: At best, government presents bureaucratic obstacles to economic efficiency, in the form of burdensome red tape, onerous taxes and ill-advised allocation of resources to unworthy projects (Solyndra, anyone?). At worst, government intervention in the economy is inexorably speeding the U.S. toward the nightmare of “communism.”Surely, we can all agree that the state must be kept at bay so as not to crush technological innovations that are the lifeblood of the free enterprise system?Like the ubiquitous iPhone, right? More than 250 million iPhones have been produced and sold since 2007, each serving as a tiny monument to the entrepreneurship of Apple founder Steve Jobs, the ingenuity of private enterprise and the dynamism of American capitalism.Or do they?
Economist Mariana Mazzucato, author of The Entrepreneurial State, recently gave a lecture challenging this precise point, in which she pointed out that all the core technologies that make the iPhone work–the Internet, GPS, touchscreens and cellular communications–were the fruits of direct government investment in research and development projects.The government also provided early financing to what we consider some of the most innovative companies around–Apple, Compaq and Intel, among others–through the Small Business Innovation Research program and other similar programs.The commonly held wisdom is that the U.S. is home to tech giants such as Facebook, Google and Apple–rather than, say, Europe–because the state sector is so much larger in other countries. But this turns reality on its head, according to Mazzucato. It’s the “visible hand” of U.S. government investment in research and development–investments that venture capital firms generally consider too risky to undertake–that has, in fact, given the edge to U.S. tech firms.
At the same time, both parties have been committed to “ending welfare as we know it,” as Bill Clinton famously pledged.In reality, the political elite, the wealthy and Corporate America only dislike government spending when they aren’t the beneficiaries–which explains their distaste for welfare spending that benefits the poor. The corporate titans are pleased as punch about welfare spending that serves the interests of Big Business–such as the many forms of government investment in tech innovation that allows venture capital firms to later swoop in and make massive profits after the government has absorbed all the risk by funding the research.
And both parties supported the Bush administration’s bailout of American financial institutions after those same institutions recklessly crashed the economy making bad bets on an obviously overheated housing market. Suddenly, after years of insisting that the government couldn’t possibly fund anti-poverty programs, better schools or sufficient workplace safety inspections, the neoliberal architects of the economy found literally trillions to bail out the icons of American capitalism.Now that the bailout has returned banks to making fat profits, where does that leave the taxpayers whose money funded all this? Facing an unprecedented slew of budget cuts, high levels of unemployment and an ongoing foreclosure crisis. And how many politicians demanding drug tests for people who receive food stamps have demanded the same of bank executives enjoying massive year-end bonuses also as a consequence of government policy? Please let me know when you find one.The bailout thus allowed the financial giants to “socialize” their losses while privatizing the profits.
According to investigative reporter Joshua Holland, there has been a radical shift in the income tax burden from corporations to individuals:At the beginning of World War II, individuals and families paid 38 percent of federal income taxes, and corporations picked up the other 62 percent. That’s changed significantly–last year, individuals and families paid 82 percent of federal income taxes, and corporations kicked in just 18 percent.So it’s easy to see why appeals to “lower taxes” gain traction with American workers–but then end up benefitting the corporations and the wealthy who have the campaign contributions and the high-powered lobbyists to make that a reality.Without question, most people don’t support giving billions of dollars in subsidies to oil corporations at a time when they are reaping the most gargantuan profits ever recorded by any corporations ever in the history of the planet. But on the other hand, they don’t hear nearly as much about such corporate welfare as they do about those feckless Americans allegedly using food stamps, which provide families less than $1.50 per person per meal, to feast on spreads of champagne and caviar.

I’VE BEEN REVISITING my notes from my teleclass back in June, where we talked about planetary influences in the last six months of 2013. Here’s what I wrote in my script for October:
“October seems like a turning point month to me. An important shift is set to occur in the weeks leading up to the Lunar Eclipse on the 18th, a shift that marks the next step in our evolutionary process.”
Based on my own life and recent conversations with clients and friends, I would say there’s a strong sense of “turning point” in the air. Something is ready to shift.
THE ENERGIES seem to be swirling in place at the moment. What is happening is a clearing of lower vibrations from our emotional, mental and physical bodies. The result is that we are experiencing similar challenges and situations over and over as the energies circle around.
We may feel stuck and confused by this “neverending story” — but if we can visualize the outdated emotional-mental-physical patterning being spun off, we can feel a rewarding sense of peace and calm beneath the storm. Then, when the gates finally open, those swirling energies will be ready to cascade into new territory, and we will move on as well.
PART OF THE BUILDUP of tension relates to the upcoming eclipses — the Lunar Eclipse on Friday of this week, and the Solar Eclipse on November 3. We’re also in the energy wave of the fourth Pluto-Uranus square, which is exact on November 1. Each of these planetary events is a potential gate-opener.
Our Lunar Eclipse is in the 26th degree of Aries, which corresponds with this Sabian symbol: “A man possessed of more gifts than he can hold: Obsession by potentiality.”
I CAN RELATE to that somewhat enigmatic phrase: “Obsession by potentiality.” There’s such a strong sense of potential in the air, it’s a bit difficult to stay on track with current reality. The mind and heart continue to want to live in the possibilities that lie ahead.
Here’s an abridged version of the interpretation of this symbol, offered by Dane Rudhyar in his book An Astrological Mandala:
“The mind which finds itself confronted with a totally unfamiliar and as yet unexperienced potential finds it difficult at first to adjust to its new world of perception and possibilities of action. It is best to try to reach a state of calm watchfulness, and to learn that even at this new, more advanced level, there are rules and limits to be learned… At this evolutionary stage, we must move carefully, for our consciousness is not yet fully able to operate in it.”
We’ve already been working with the energies represented by this symbol for a couple of weeks, since the New Moon on October 4. Perhaps that explains why life seems even more confusing and out-of-control than usual.
MARS ENTERS VIRGO on Tuesday, and quickly moves into place opposite Neptune in Pisces. While this opposition is not exact until Saturday, we are likely to feel it starting on Tuesday and lasting for about a week.
Mars represents the action principle — our ability to know what we want and to go after it. In Virgo, Mars is driven by a strong need to control and have everything go according to plan.Neptune, in the other corner, represents our ability to surrender the needs of the ego and to base our well-being on a knowing of our cosmic connections.
WITH THESE TWO in opposition, we will be working with a strong disillusionment with old ways of managing reality. It will be clear that any attempts to coerce or control are counterproductive, and that our plans must be flexible, to allow guidance from another level of reality. We will also be dissolving the ego’s need for perfection — both in self and in the process of life.
All oppositions require us to find a balance point in the middle. The fulcrum of the Neptune-Mars opposition is knowing what we can control and accepting what we cannot, doing the tasks that we define as important, and surrendering outcomes with faith that a higher plan is in effect.
MIDWEEK brings Venus into the spotlight, with Venus square Chiron and trine Uranus on Wednesday. Venus represents our relationships with other people and with the material/financial aspects of our reality.
Venus is currently in Sagittarius, so is appreciating its freedom and the ability to come and go as desired in relationship. Financially, this may mean having less awareness of the commitments that require conservative and responsible action.
THE VENUS-CHIRON SQUARE creates an obstacle that reins in the carefree/careless action. Chiron in Pisces hopes to remind us of our interconnectedness, to heal our knowing of Oneness. Chiron intends for Venus to remember the importance of compassion and humility.
At the same time, the Venus-Uranus trine provides the potential for change. Uranus in Aries is anxious to move forward into the future, to leave the old forms behind. This is a fortuitous aspect to have at this time, as it will assist us in having the courage and flexibility to redefine our journey by accessing the great treasure of new ideas, possibilities and wisdom available to us.
