I haven’t posted to my blog for a long while, mostly because I didn’t really have anything pressing to say.
There is also the *grim* factor, in that things are becoming so execrable that it’s downright unpleasant to regularly write about what’s going on in the world.
But what I can say is that in recent weeks I have again drunk ayahuasca, the revelatory, Amazonian shamanic brew. My long-time readers know that my principle reason for originally coming to South America in 2010 was to embark on a shamanic vision quest. I am happy to report that the quest is ongoing! — and ayahasca has played, and continues to play, an integral role in my continuing process of self-inquiry and exploration of broader reality in every sense.
So it is that in recent weeks ayahuasca, in its considerable wisdom, has seen fit to impress upon me, yet one more time, just how fake and FALSEeverything is. It has shown me hours of the most HIDEOUS, GHASTLY,HORRIFIC aspects of this world and this reality that one man can bear to take in. Every corpuscle and fiber of my organism automatically reacted in instinctive revulsion and I was reduced to repeated rounds of vigorous retching and deep sighing as I repeated over and over and over: “It’s so false. It’s all so false!”
Indeed, I cannot begin to tell you, though I will nevertheless try, how fake, empty and horrifically EVIL it all seems when ayahuasca shines its inner spotlight on the world that we all know and live in.
Let me enumerate some of the fake, FALSE reality for you:
false stock market
You can easily add to the list yourself.
What came through for me very clearly, with heavy emotional immediacy, is that things are too far gone to be substantially remedied or reformed at this point.
The current FALSE order of things is irredeemable, cannot be reformed. A deeply negative, satanically programmed, karmically driven, species-wide, planet-wide, probability tree, or decision tree is now self-executing and counting down to a predetermined time zero.
PURE EVIL does not become good, as it were, (or else it would not bePURE EVIL — see?) and so things will be running their dire course in the coming months and years.
In other words, the whole dynamic is powered by hundreds of millions and billions of deeply programmed, humanoid, meat puppets on largely reflexive, un-self-examined, cumulatively self-destructive auto-pilot, firmly rooted in the numerous FALSE factors that I have listed above.
It boils down to this: humanity has contrived to bring itself face to face with the sum of all its karma. And it will be resolved! It is simply inevitable, because the karmic burden is so darkly heavy. How could it be otherwise after so many thousands of years of warring, slaving, stealing, murdering, lying, exploiting, plundering, looting, torturing, robbing, despoiling, etc.?
But it’s even worse than that. Ayahuasca has shown me unambiguously that a purely satanic A.I. (artificial intelligence) is now in control on this planet and ruthlessly, mercilessly pushing towards a nuclear war that has been locked in, that is locked and loaded, and is ticking down to nuclear D-Day.
It is very much as if we are pawns caught up in a satanic, ruthless, merciless video game that is programmed to self-destruct. It’s like an evil, virtual reality movie reel is automatically unspooling under the ruthless guidance of a demented, homicidally psychopathic projectionist who has locked himself in the projection booth of the global movie theatre and cannot be stopped.
Look around — you’ll see 7+ billions of ostensibly *human* pawns stupidly marching into a grim future bristling with nuclear missiles, a rapidly collapsing global ecology, ecosystems littered with millions of tons of plastic garbage and toxic chemicals of every description, diminishing fresh water sources, an increasingly poisonous, radioactive environment thanks to out-of-control nuclear technology, a crushing, global debt burden that cannot possibly be paid, rampant criminal corruption in government after government the world over, and much more.
How Do We Get Out Of This Terrible Situation?
A friend of mine to whom I described my visions rejoined: “But, Richard, if there were to be mass repentance and a change of heart by humanity couldn’t this all be avoided?”
from Daily Mail:
An Oregon man has been arrested for using his infant stepdaughter to make child porn, police say,
Kelly Shane Rice, 29, faces multiple child sex charges after Homeland Security found evidence he had produced the disturbing pornography and shared it over private messaging app Kik, court records show.
Investigators tracked the uploads to Rice’s Roseburg, Oregeon home, where they executed a search warrant on November 2.
Homeland Security and state police say they found evidence that Rice had been using his one-year-old stepdaughter to produce the child porn.
‘During the search of the residence and the following investigation, it was discovered that one of the child pornographic images was produced at that residence,’ state police told KVAL 13.
Rice is charged with using a child in display of sexually explicit conduct; sex abuse, unlawful sexual penetration and encouraging child sex abuse.
He is currently in the Douglas County Jail and bail has been set at $1.1 million.
This isn’t the first time that an alleged pedophile has been caught sharing child porn on Kik.
The app, which was founded in 2009 by a group of University of Waterloo students, has become something of a haven for predators in recent years.
The app grants its users anonymity as unlike others, it doesn’t require a working phone number – just a unique username. This, according to the app’s website, is so ‘users are always in complete control of who they talk to on Kik.’
Kik is a smartphone messenger app that allows users anonymity
However, the app’s anonymity makes it a minefield when it comes to solving crimes, such as child exploitation, bomb threats and terrorism.
It allows users to search for others by age and send photographs that are not stored on phones – making it popular with pedophiles and predators and the bane of law enforcement.
Ted Livingston, the start-up’s founder and chief executive, has said the service, which has 240million users, reaches roughly 40 per cent of Americans aged 13 to 25.
The free app uses native advertising – including video advertisements – to earn revenue. To target its primarily young audience, it also offers advertisers the chance to reach consumers using branded GIFs.
However, in a guide for law enforcement, Kik says names, emails and ages do not allow the company to find user accounts – the exact username is required. They will, however, preserve data for a period of 90 days, pending receipt of a valid order from law enforcement.

Suzie Dawson calls the Snowden Files “the gift that keeps on giving,” and with good reason. Legacy media likes to distill the information into only the past tense, a single take-away sound bite regarding the exposure of mass surveillance in 2013. However, as Dawson notes, much of the important content residing in the Snowden documents has never been addressed by mainstream press, due in large part to the volume of the data.
However, as Dawson contends, there is a wealth of knowledge remaining in the files that are often unrelated to the widely publicized revelation of the NSA’s domestic surveillance, but that provides important contextual understanding of intelligence agency intent and motivation.
This author collaborated with Dawson in examining Snowden files that, though published, had not been publicized at this time. Dawson said: “This is information in the public arena, that has not been examined by journalists.” Dawson added: “The true power of the documents is not so much in examining the content of each single document, but in actually pulling together the whole picture.”
Discussion of the results of two previous live streams on the matter are included below.
Dawson told Disobedient Media that analyzing the files had: “Changed the way I think and feel about surveillance, intelligence agencies, the UN, the USA. and the system that ultimately governs the entire world.”
One of the first documents we looked at was in regards to an “Advanced Analysis Seminar” on “Computational Neurobiology.” The event involved the Fair Isaac Corporation, or FICO, a credit scoring company that also describes itself as interested in Artificial Intelligence.
The lecture was presented by Dr. Robert Hecht-Nielson, who spoke regarding Confabulation theory. The intent of the theory is to find a mechanism that explains cognition in humans and animals – a unified theory of mind – that can then be applied to artificial intelligence. Hecht-Nielsen’s association with the credit score company FICO resulted from a merger with his HNC Software, which press reports described as involved in both the credit industry and “After the Sept. 11 attacks, it has also been looking to use its software to help airlines identify high-risk passengers.”
Dawson pointed out that Johns Hopkins and other Universities had been partnering with the NSA to run seminars, which leads to the disturbing implications of the intelligence agency’s influence on academic institutions, a point which would come up again later in our discussion.
Another important point raised by the Snowden documents is the fact that the European Union is considered the top strategic threat to the United States, eclipsing even nations like Russia and China.
The second document we discussed indicated that during the immediate aftermath of the Iraq War, NSA overtime skyrocketed to such an extent that the agency was forced to publish a document outlining limits on overtime and described measures to prevent mental breakdown of employees.
An additional issue raised by the Snowden files was the role of SIGINT regarding ‘hidden meanings’ in public broadcasts. Dawson pointed out the importance of the document because of its relevance to foreign press, as well as for individual live streamers on the ground, who may then face violent repercussions for their ‘public broadcasts.’
This was a significant document because it demonstrates that the NSA’s description of SIGINT differs from its described targets revealed by Snowden. Publicly, SIGINT is described as targeting: “electronic signals and systems used by foreign targets, such as communications systems, radars, and weapons systems.” However, no mention of ‘public broadcast’ is made in this public definition.
This public description is belied by Snowden documents which show that SIGINT also targets ‘public broadcasts,’ which could include individual civilian livestreams. This single document shows that the NSA’s practices significantly differ from their publicly acknowledged activities in both scope and intent.
An additional document, “Winning the War Was the Easy Part: Challenges of Nation Building,” discussed UN involvement in ‘rebuilding’ Iraq after the initial devastation of the Iraq War. This information corroborates the presence of the NSA for economic purposes. The document mentions the “lessons learned from previous Nation-building exercises,” which as Dawson pointed out, appears to be an admission that many past US interventions have been exercises in ‘nation-building.’
The document goes on to differentiate nation-building from peacekeeping, and mentions “Previous UN and US experiences in post-conflict reconstruction.’ This raised the question as to the actual motivations behind the UN’s initial refusal to support the war in Iraq. Dawson asked: “Was this a PR exercise?” The mention of previous experiences in US-UN nation building suggested a “cycle,” where the US invades a country and the UN then acts in the reconstruction phase. Disobedient Media previously reported on problematic paramilitary organizations repeatedly given UN contracts after conflicts and in disaster areas.
Disturbingly, the document states: “Rebuilding a country from scratch is an extremely difficult challenge.” This chilling statement omits and takes for granted the reality that rebuilding a nation “from scratch” is only necessary after that country has been utterly devastated by a military invasion. As the document states, nation-building is not simply peacekeeping. It suggests an active role in both the destruction that necessitates rebuilding, and control of the process of reconstruction both physically and politically.

So…some people actually want to be microchipped like a dog. They’re lining up for it. They’re having parties to get it done. It if isn’t available to them, they’re totally bummed out.
I’m not even going to venture into the religious aspect of having a microchip inserted into a human being. Let’s just talk about the secular ramifications.
Certain folks won’t be happy until everyone has a computer chip implanted in them. Here’s how this could go.
Read on, because I could not make this stuff up.
Last summer, the internet was abuzz about a company in Wisconsin that wanted to microchip their employees. Workers at the technology company, Three Market Square, were given the option of having a chip implanted in their hands and 50 out of 80 eagerly lined up for the privilege.
Why? So they could buy food or swipe their way through building security with a wave of their hand. Software engineer Sam Bengtson explained why he was on board.
“It was pretty much 100 percent yes right from the get-go for me. In the next five to 10 years, this is going to be something that isn’t scoffed at so much, or is more normal. So I like to jump on the bandwagon with these kind of things early, just to say that I have it.” (source)
He wasn’t alone. In fact, they had a microchipping party and some people got chipped live on TV so the rest of us reluctant humans could all see how cool it was to get microchipped. Watch what fun they had!
It isn’t just this American company chipping workers. Here’s an example in Sweden.
What could pass for a dystopian vision of the workplace is almost routine at the Swedish start-up hub Epicenter. The company offers to implant its workers and start-up members with microchips the size of grains of rice that function as swipe cards: to open doors, operate printers or buy smoothies with a wave of the hand.
“The biggest benefit, I think, is convenience,” said Patrick Mesterton, co-founder and chief executive of Epicenter. As a demonstration, he unlocks a door merely by waving near it. “It basically replaces a lot of things you have, other communication devices, whether it be credit cards or keys.” (source)

Unsurprisingly, the Republican tax plan moving forward in the U.S. Congress and championed by Donald “Drain the Swamp” Trump, is very swampy. Today’s post will highlight a few examples.
First, let’s hear some of what billionaire fund manager Jeffrey Gundlach had to say. Via Bloomberg:
Jeffrey Gundlach, chief investment officer of DoubleLine Capital, said the congressional tax plan would expand the federal deficit and help a small fraction of the U.S. population, including hedge fund managers.
“I’m very disappointed incidentally about the shape of this tax cut that is being proposed,” Gundlach told a gathering of industry participants at the Drake Hotel in Chicago on Wednesday. “I am just appalled that we are going to continue to have a carried-interest scheme for hedge funds.”
The House bill set to be voted on Thursday keeps the carried-interest tax treatment that benefits private-equity managers, venture capitalists, hedge-fund managers and certain real estate investors. During last year’s campaign, President Donald Trump had vowed to get rid of the loophole. White House top economic adviser Gary Cohn has said Trump is committed to ending the tax break.
“After I saw that tax bill, I lost hope with the drain the swamp concept,” Gundlach said. “The swamp keeps getting bigger.”
Carried interest is the portion of a fund’s profit — usually a 20 percent share — that’s paid to managers. Currently, tax authorities treat that income as capital gains, making it eligible for a rate as low as 20 percent. The top tax rate for ordinary income is 39.6 percent.
He called the tax plan “a cosmetic tax decrease for the middle class that will go away over time.”
Of course, none of this is really surprising. Donald Trump’s been a Wall Street bootlicker ever since he came into office, just like Barack Obama before him.
But there’s much more swampiness to be had. For example, there’s the fact that the corporate tax rate cut is permanent, while the individual cut is temporary. From the Los Angeles Times:
A gambit by Senate Republicans to make a large corporate tax cut permanent by having benefits for individuals expire at the end of 2025 created new problems for the legislation Wednesday as lawmakers were still grappling with the controversial decision to add the repeal of a key Obamacare provision.
The decision by Republican leaders to double down on risky maneuvers to overcome budgetary hurdles with their tax overhaul threatened to put the entire effort in jeopardy.
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) declared he would not support the bill because it treats large corporations differently than many small businesses, which pay taxes through the individual code.
“If they can pass it without me, let them,” Johnson told the Wall Street Journal. “I’m not going to vote for this tax package.”
He later said he hoped “to address the disparity so I can support the final version.”
Here’s some more on what Ron Johnson’s complaining about, via CNBC:
Johnson said he’s been working for months behind the scenes to make changes, but he added that he’s not going to let his “version of perfect” sink tax reform. “I want to get this thing fixed, and vote for pro-growth tax reform that makes all American businesses competitive globally,” he said. “I care deeply about this country, I care deeply about this deficit.”
As a former small business owner, Johnson said he’s particularly concerned about the so-called pass-through rate, in which the profits and losses of sole proprietorships, partnerships, and S-corporations “pass through” to their owners who are then taxed at individual income-tax rates, currently as high as 39.6 percent.
“We can’t leave anybody behind, which is why they came up with the 25 rate for pass throughs,” he said. “The problem is, neither the House or the Senate version really honored that commitment to pass-through businesses, which I argue are a huge engine of economic growth.”
“I don’t have the information on how much it would cost, how many pass-through businesses are being left behind that do compete globally. I can’t get the information. I’ve been asking. They don’t give it to me,” said Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee.
Moving on, if you’re still in denial that this “tax reform” was written for oligarchs and mega corps, take a look at the reaction of former Goldman Sachs executive and Trump’s White House Economic Council director, Gary Cohn, when his audience of corporate executives were asked a simple question.
As Zerohedge perfectly summarized:
The eagerness to shift incentives away from buybacks to capex is also the basis for much of Trump’s economic policy as designed over the past year by his top economic advisor, former Goldman COO Gary Cohn who is the White House Economic Council director. In fact, the motive behind the administration’s entire push for tax reform (cutting corporate tax rates) and offshore cash repatriation, is to the funds domestically, though not on buybacks and M&A (which also leads to “synergies” and other headcount reductions), but on reinvesting the funds in growing one’s business and hiring.
Which is why we were amused to observe the following brief interchange yesterday between Gary Cohn and an audience made up of executives, where in the span of a few seconds Gary Cohn realized that his entire economic policy had been a disaster.
During an event for the Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council, an editor at The Wall Street Journal asked the room: “If the tax reform bill goes through, do you plan to increase investment — your company’s investment, capital investment?” He asked for a show of hands.
Alas, as the camera revealed, virtually nobody raised their hand.
Responding to this “unexpected” lack of enthusiasm to invest in growth, Cohn had one question: “Why aren’t the other hands up?”

The international whistleblower group WikiLeaks confirmed the website Wlsearch.tk mentioned in a biased Atlantic hit piece against the organization and President Donald Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr is genuine.
Now the website Wlsearch.tk loads not to WikiLeaks emails like before the election, but to a page dedicated to Seth Rich with an ominous message. Was it hacked or done deliberately? What is mentioned has the Internet buzzing with excitement.
“Donald Trump Jr tweeted out the missing context to the alleged Twitter correspondence,” WikiLeaks tweeted out.
The WikiLeaks website for searching through John Podesta’s emails that it sent to Trump Jr. now reads:
“You finally found me! I’m the source of the John Podesta/DNC Email hacks. I’ve been waiting so long for you to join me.
Thanks to Wikileaks and Trump Jr you’ll all soon know why Hillary Clinton and John Podesta had me killed.
As you can see I’m no Russian agent. I was just a proud DNC staffer who believed in the system until I found out Hillary Clinton and the DNC rigged the primaries against my candidate Bernie Sanders. That’s when I decided to take action and release these emails to Wikileaks.
John Podesta was determined to make an example out of me and had me taken care of. Why did you think they didn’t let the FBI examine the DNC servers? Yep, those servers would have lead them straight to me. John couldn’t let that happen.
BTW, did you know that John Podesta is a Pedophile? Just ask him about Pizzagate next time you see him for me. Thanks.
Thanks again Wikileaks for upping my reward to solve my murder. I wonder why you’d do that for me? Oh, you are trying to tell the world I was your source. Whoops cat’s outta the bag now.”
The domain was modified on 11/14/17. Upon further researching, we learned the domain was actually re-registered and is provided by a free domain host the Freedom Registry. This means that anyone within or outside of the WikiLeaks campaign could have access to the domain. We just don’t know who owns it.
“Freedom Registry makes money through ads on expired domains. Zuurbier says registration and renewal are free for users, but when they abandon the site or don’t meet the minimum requirements of 25 unique visitors every 90 days, the domain gets ‘parked.’ That means the URL still exists, but the content is replaced with ads tailored to the original site,” CNN reported about the domain registrar.
If it was indeed done by someone within the whistleblower coalition, the message is quite telling and doesn’t hold back accusing both Hillary Clinton and John Podesta of murder, and Podesta separately potentially being a pedophile, making note to ask about Pizzagate.
Speculation has exploded about Podesta using codewords throughout his leaked emails that were published by WikiLeaks over the summer, possibly revealing corruption throughout Clinton’s campaign and creepy “spirit cooking.” One of the stranger emails suggests to Podesta that someone found his handkerchief and it has a “map that seems pizza-related,” a sentence that makes no sense.
— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) November 4, 2016
In the final months of the 2016 presidential election, the WikiLeaks Twitter account promoted not just its new publications, but also frequently anti-Clinton articles like her alleged “role in the death of White House counsel Vince Foster.” DailyMail also published a story that WikiLeaks posted that indicated an interview with HRC went missing from the U.S. National Archives on Vince Foster’s death, a story I also covered while working at We Are Change, last year.

LAS VEGAS (INTELLIHUB) — Anyone who has been closely following the Las Vegas shooting investigation knows that Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, for whatever reason, has not been fully forthcoming about all of the events which took place on the night of October 1.
One glaring detail that throws a wrench in the entire Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s official story in which authorities claim Stephen Paddock acted alone is the fact that the door which adjoins rooms 135 (Paddock’s suite) and 134 (a queen suite next to Paddock’s) was locked and had to be breached by SWAT after Paddock’s suite was secure.
If the adjoining door was locked and Paddock was already dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, then who locked the adjoining door to room 134 where the second window was broken out?
If SWAT had to breach the door it had to be locked from the opposite side. If that’s the case, then who rented room 134? Did they exit into the hallway Campos was in?
More importantly, who put the cart in front of the door which leads from into room 134 from the hallway and who ran the wires from the camera on the cart into room 134 under the door?
Keep in mind, as of yet, we do not know exactly who rented room 134. Although an Austrailian man by the name of Brian Hodge reportedly told “The Courier-Mail” that he was staying in room 32134 he may have been mistaken because receipts obtained by journalists after the fact reveal that Hodge was staying in room 32143, and not room 32134.
As you may already know, on Nov. 1 Intellihub was the first to publish the precise video timestamp and a screenshot of what appeared to be a single ‘muzzle flash’ emitting from the room adjacent to Stephen Paddock’s 32nd-floor Mandalay Bay suite but now an independent ballistic analysis confirms the flash was, in fact, actual gunfire.
In the video, a flash can clearly be seen (at the 6:52-second mark) coming from room 32-134.
You can best view the flash by enlarging the video to ‘full screen.’
