Bamboozled

Written by Emmanuel Charles McCarthy

Does anyone really believe that the current government and media script we are living in just emerged on the spur of the moment from nowhere to take over the entire national conversation and reality? Does anyone really believe that the official government and media script of the events of September 11, 2001, that two planes knocked down three giant skyscrapers into their own footprints at free fall speed? Does anyone really believe the government and media script of the Patriot Act, which began the process of systematically closing down democratic processes by placing unprecedented authoritarian dictatorial power in the hands of a relatively small coterie of people, and which was supposedly was written at warp speed and which was passed at warp #10 speed by a 99% vote in a Congress 99% of whom never read the Act before voting, is unrelated to the life people in the U.S. are enduring on September 11, 2020, and will be living under for the rest of their lives?

For that matter does anyone honestly believe that the murder of Salvador Allende, the democratically elected President of Chile, on September 11, 1972, by the U.S. Government under the immediate direction of Henry Kissinger, National Security Advisor to the President Nixon, is not the product of the same mind-set and U.S. government policy as the murder of 2,400 people on September 11, 2001, and the murder of God only knows how many as of September 11, 2020, by the Covid19 government operation? On April 3, 2020 Henry Kissinger joined up with Bill Gates calling for the mass vaccination of everyone to stop Covid19!

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge — even to ourselves — that we’ve been fooled.” — Carl SaganThe Fine Art of Baloney Detection 

Being bamboozled by a daily diet of government and media scripts is just a risk everyone must live under who resides in the United States in the twenty-first century. There are in the U.S. an overgrowth of multi-million dollar “public relations” and advertising corporations whose sole agenda is to bamboozle as it fit their clients, government or private corporation, including religious corporation’s, needs. 

Politicians, who are professional bamboozlers, give hundreds of millions of dollars to these advertising firms at election time. Major and even minor U.S. elections are largely determined by who has the best bamboozling team. And, since bamboozlers have to pay, via their PR firms, big, big bucks to the media to effectively bamboozle the populous, the media will put out any script, truthful or untruthful, on which it can make a buck. The U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Sullivan vs the New York Times makes it all but impossible to win a libel case against a media outlet even when it is proven beyond all reasonable doubt that it intentionally lied and its lying caused harm. So, when these bamboozling politicians get into power is it even sane to believe they will renounce their old bamboozling ways and tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?

Such is the world in which everyone who lives in the U.S. today has to function. People just have to continually be figuring out whether, say, the food they’re buying will, as they are told in the advertisements, build strong bones and muscles, or will, as they are not told in the advertisements, cause cancer. C’est la vie. Today, truth is totally mobile. And, money is the vehicle that carries each day’s “truths” to the populous. Again, c’est la vie. Such is life at this time and probably for centuries to come in a society controlled and governed by bamboozlers. Live with it.

There is, however, one aspect of this bamboozling national environment that concerns me infinitely more than all others that I will not serenely live with nor voluntarily participate in, namely, when Christians are intentionally bamboozled into doing evil to other sons and daughters of the Father of all under the auspices that they are doing good and God’s will as revealed by God Himself in His Word “made flesh” Jesus Christ. The most egregious and long-running example of this is institutional Church officers bamboozling their people into believing that Jesus’ command to “Love your enemies,” is morally and spiritually compatible with the most ordinary activities of war, e.g., ripping people’s eyes out, slicing their throats, burning their faces off, blowing their brains out. Such bamboozling of the people of God by Church leaders generation after generation is radical evil in the strict sense. It is the institutional brainwashing of the beloved disciples of Jesus as well as all of the sons and daughters of the Father of all into accepting as the truth of Jesus that the way of hell is the Way to heaven.

Church rulers know well and use shamelessly to their advantage, the truth which Carl Sagan is communicating when he writes, “If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us.”

P.S. Tomorrow, September 12, I will present a spiritual/moral reflection by Dr. David Ray Griffin, who has been for over forty years a professional theologian focusing on process theology as a method to perceive and interpret the Good News of Jesus Christ. He has written eleven books, e.g. The New Pearl Harbor, on 911and the lies the U.S. government and media have propagated to hide the fact—and its immense implications and consequences—that the official 911 government report is erroneous to the point of absurdity and a cover up. But, he has written twenty-four books on philosophy, theology and religion. What he writes about tomorrow will not have one direct word about 911 in it.

What’s really going on?

So, let me get this straight: A week or two ago, a study found that people are overestimating the spread and fatality rate of COVID by far. When asked how many people they thought had died in their country from COVID, people across the world were guessing between 100-300 TIMES higher than the number of people who had actually died! This is evidence of mass delusion, hysteria, the molding of mass consciousness that cannot possibly be achieved in any other way besides that of an organized attempt, i.e. via the harping of the corporate legacy media day after day, night after night (the same corporate media that is bought and paid for by BigPharma).

Meanwhile, instead of 180,000 dead from the virus, a more pertinent figure of 10,800 now emerges (from the CDC). Those other deaths (even if you ignore the evidence of fraudulent reporting, which was widespread, and take the 180,000 number at face value) were not caused by COVID alone but by the virus combined with other health issues… and most of the time with the fact of simply being old and weak. (Respiratory illnesses have always been a #1 killer of the old.) Proven therapuetics like hydroxychloroquine + vitamins, which could be used cheaply, were deemed suspect and in some places made illegal, while expensive treatments like the PATENTED Remdesiver were considered acceptable, pushed. Doctors who talked about cheap and effective treatments were silenced and scorned. Doctors who talked about herd immunity and how to boost immune systems were silenced and scorned. Doctors who talked about “there’s no way out of this besides a vaccine”? Accepted!

The American economy was decimated by lockdowns, 1/3 of the American population is now unemployed, and 21% of small businesses are gone and never coming back. There is widespread social unrest and violence, and yet amid all of this: “The top 12 American billionaires have seen their combined wealth soar by 40 percent, from $283 billion to over $1 trillion since the health crisis began.”

There is no science to prove that a face diaper will protect you or anyone else from contracting a virus, yet everyone in the world has to don them everywhere they go, putting them on to enter and exit restaurants, for example, while being allowed to remove them while sitting. (This is not science. This is more like ritual.) Young people are not “put in cages” in school, but they might as well be! Reports coming in from college campuses make it sound more like prison than college.

And we hear Trump touting “Operation Warp Speed” and the development of a vaccine to combat this virus by end of year. Bill Gates, a man who comes from a family obsessed with eugenics, who is, himself, obsessed with population control, and has no background in medical science, is our new Public Health Czar, apparently. The vaccine that he wants to push on the population (which the American government has already paid BILLIONS for) is called an RNA/DNA vaccine: It’s new and experimental. (You should look into it.) President Trump has named the push for a vaccine “Operation Warp Speed.” I’ve read that to make a safe vaccine, with all of the standard animal and then human trials, it can take up to five years, sometimes ten, and I’ve read that 93% of them are never deemed safe and therefore never go to market. But they are going to create a vaccine for a “new” virus that was only discovered earlier this year and deploy it by end of year? Mind you they can’t even guarantee that the flu shot you get is the exact formula for the specific strain of flu that you have—and they have been studying the flu virus for over 100 years! President Trump has said he will use the military to get this vaccine to market. The Department of Defense is involved. Why? Why should the Department of Defense be involved in the development and administering of a “voluntary” vaccine?

Meanwhile the globalist oligarchs have admitted to engaging in a massive worldwide social and economic engineering project, using the virus as an opportunity to “reimagine, rebuild, redesign, rebalance, reset, and reorder” the world. (Their words, not mine.) It’s called the Great Reset. (Their words, not mine.) You can read all about it at the World Economic Forum’s website. It’s like a glossy new brochure for “our” future.

So, what’s going on here? My guess is: The purpose of the masks and the lockdowns are not to save anyone from disease (obviously) but to psychologically condition whole populations to be prepared to accept a “New Normal” (previously referred to as the New World Order), which they have re-branded “The Great Reset.” Once we get accustomed to not being able to do anything without a mask (shop, socialize, worship, work), it will be a smaller jump when they tell us we can’t do anything without a vaccine. (Have you ever heard of the frog in boiling water?) Am I wrong? Am I nuts? I hope so! I hope I’m proven wrong. But until then, consider this: “Most tyrannies have been possible because men moved too late. It is often essential to resist a tyranny before it exists.” – G.K. Chesterton, Eugenics and Other Evils: An Argument Against the Scientifically Organized State.

Sidenote: When I brought all of this up to my priest, and suggested that maybe Christian communities should start talking about all of this, he told me I shouldn’t trouble myself with worldly and political concerns, that it is all a distraction from my eteral destiny, that I need to pray and work on my relationship with God. Then he asked if I would come in and give a talk on racism at the symposium he’s setting up for the purposes of talking about race relations among our Catholic communty, at our parish in September. True story!

Fr. George Zabelka

Don’t miss the latest CAM podcast: Episode 50!

I know, I know — it’s almost three hours long! But it is the 75th anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and this episode provides a great “behind the scenes” oral history that you won’t hear elsewhere; not to mention it acts as a great testimony to the way God works in human lives and human history, carrying out his plans in ways we can’t even see or could ever possibly plan.

God had a plan for George’s life. Find out more about:

  • What he did as a Catholic chaplain in 1945 at Tinian Island
  • Why he “blessed the bombs” of the 509th composite group, the group that dropped the atomic bombs on Japan
  • How belligerent Fr. Zabelka was when he first showed up at Fr. McCarthy’s retreats in the mid-70s. (“Are you telling me Jesus wouldn’t enjoy a good boxing match?!”)
  • His eventual conversion.
  • How his story came to be known around the world, despite Catholic media having no interest in it whatsoever.
  • How his story helped to spark the movement on the part of the U.S. bishops that eventually led to the writing and publishing of their 1983 pastoral “The Challenge of Peace” (which was a really big deal back in its day)
  • Why Zabelka is “considered a saint” in some circles of Japanese Christianity

To me, the story of George is unimaginably important. The story of why there are hardly any Catholics who know about George is equally important. It’s a great story, one about conversation, repentance, peace. Why were so few media outlets in the United States, both American and Catholic, so disinterested in telling it?

Don’t forget to watch the documentary about George as well, “The Reluctant Prophet”:

Moral Equivocation 101

Father Raymond J. de Souza wrote “The Morality of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, 75 Years Later” at The National Catholic Register:

https://www.ncregister.com/daily-news/the-morality-of-hiroshima-and-nagasaki-75-years-later

In it, he said: “It is beyond dispute that nuclear weapons — a single bomb capable of killing 140,000 in Hiroshima and 75,000 in Nagasaki — changed the military dimension of the war. The atomic bomb made it clear that every major city in Japan could be obliterated with a few dozen American sorties. The unconditional surrender of Japan thus followed swiftly.”

He is wrong. Maybe he should listen to members of the military at the time, some with titles like Admiral and General and names like MacArthur, Eisenhower and Nimitz, to understand the “military dimension” of the use of the nuclear bombs on Japan.

It’s sad when we have to rely on the LameStream news of Yahoo/LA Times to help us unequivocally understand the horrors of war, over the FakeNews of a supposedly Catholic publication:

“Military” Cathedral in Russia

Watch the creepy dedication of this “military” cathedral in Russia.

“His Holiness Orthodox Patriarch of Moscow and all the Rus Cyril, has consecrated the Patriarchal Main Military Cathedral of Christ’s Resurrection. The Cathedral is built to thank God for the Victory of Russia in the Great Patriotic War (Second World War), and to remember all the pious and baptized fallen soldiers. This is the third largest Cathedral in Russia.”

COVID, American Empire, and Social Engineering

Regarding the necessity of discussing the coronavirus crisis as well as militarism, the following video provides a powerful explanation for the near total capitulation of the Catholic Church to State propaganda in regards to both phenomena. The topic is discussed starting at the ten minute mark. Below the video are transcripts of the most important points from the discussion.

E. Michael Jones speaks on the crisis we face:

—“I think it’s the first time the entire world has been subjected to one form of social engineering. This is unique in all of human history. We’ve had various catastrophes in the past. They’ve always been used as an excuse to impose some form of control.”

—“I think a lot of people feel that the Church’s reaction was weak. I think they feel that way and the problem with the Church is consciousness. The Church still does not understand the term social engineering. They still don’t understand what it means, because if they did they would have a whole different view of their own history in the United States of America.”
 
—“They [the Church] still have a sense that America is a benign force in human history. They believe in, it’s called Americanism, it was even a heresy that was condemned by Pope Leo XIII. They don’t understand that this regime was the enemy of the Church. They don’t understand that, and so they have difficulty coping with this latest crisis, and the classic example of their failure to cope is the Jesuits in America. They have a magazine called America, which is significant, and they had articles, one article was ‘I am a scientist we must close down our churches.’ That is a complete acceptance of the dominant oligarchic narrative, complete acceptance of that, even to the point of shutting down your own worship services.”
 
—“If your life revolves around promoting homosexuality, you’re at war with nature. If you are at war with nature, then you feel very vulnerable. You need the big state to protect you. You don’t feel that the Church can protect you, because you’ve abandoned all of the principles that the Church is based on, including especially the moral law, which is your primary protection in life because it tells you how to act. That’s the problem with the Church. The Church, to make a long story short, has internalized the commands of its oppressors.”
 
—“I think the main problem is Americanism…. I think that America after World War Two became a global power and the Achilles heel of the Catholic Church is always reliance on princes ….”
 
—“We’re now in a position where the Church has to separate itself from the American Empire because the American Empire has become the main enemy, not just of the Church, but of the world. It is the main source of chaos in the world right now.”
 
—“What is the American Empire based upon and it turns out it’s science and because it’s based on science they can operate in contact with ultimate reality and so what you saw here was the Church completely capitulating to that understanding. It’s implicit in that article that I told you about in America.I am a scientist therefore we must close our churches.’ Well if you’re a scientist, I can’t argue with you. You have absolute truth on your side. What am I supposed to say? And so the bishops just throw up their hands and they say, well, we’ll do whatever the scientists tell us, and so you have this ridiculous spectacle of people wearing face masks in church, they’re 6 feet apart. I just went, they just reopened the churches here. It’s enough to make a grown man cry.”
