I wrote this bit back in 2006–over eight years ago. Recently ran across it and it was amusing; I was just playing around, but perhaps the germ of future NRx can be discerned here? Or perhaps the germ of a paranoid whackjob. YOU be the judge!
(Unedited except to protect the guilty: May, 2006. Not all links come with a money-back guarantee!)
I’m currently on vacation in Arizona and reading Jim Marrs’s Rule by Secrecy: The Hidden History That Connects the Trilateral Commission, the Freemasons, and the Great Pyramids, which is a pretty even-handed look at the connections between secret societies, the ‘money power,’ Big Business, Big Government and the space aliens (okay that’s a joke…that was a different book by Marrs).
While it makes for a fun poolside read for a guy like me, who can’t go in for bestselling novels without falling asleep, I don’t take it all too seriously; except–
Why would supposedly ‘populist’ politicians in the United States Senate ignore the overwhelming poll numbers and communications from their constituents in favor ‘border enforcement,’ and continue down the path of amnesty (don’t call it that!)?
Why would a President whose poll numbers are alarmingly low not do likewise? For that matter, why were both major candidates for President in 2004 members of Skull and Bones, a Yale ‘fraternity’ that only taps 15 new members a year?
Why was a little-known governor chosen to be a member of the Trilateral Commission in 1973 and why and how did he become the ‘shocking’ winner of the Presidency in 1976?
Does it really matter who we elect to office or is it just a show for the rubes to keep ’em happy while the decisions are made for them by a technocratic elite?
For that matter, does this ‘elite’ actually know best and is doing all this hard and dirty work behind the scenes to guide humanity to a better future than it could ever have through so-called ‘democracy?’
Just think for yourself and don’t take anything for granted, all right?
