Pope Frances now believes that the devil is mounting a systematic and effective campaign to wipe out the Catholic Church. I learned that from the link above, sent to dozens of us from a staunch Trump supporter. Trump believes that he too is victim of a conspiracy, and that Hilary Clinton is the master devil.
This is a very dangerous misunderstanding, THIS WEEK, because it blinds them to the very intelligent and effective conspiracy aimed at destroying all three of them and more in order to achieve its own vision of a new world order: the Moslem Brotherhood (MB), for whom Erdogan (caliph in waiting) is the new primary instrument. MB has sprung a major trap on us this week, and the danger is very imminent.
Does MB really exist? I find it incredible how the New York Times and others are so oblivious to what MB is doing, after they themselves have printed excellent investigative reports on how it works, fueled by a certain kind of fundamentalist billionaire in Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, also well documented in the 911 commission report, which any of you could find on the web. Prince Mohammed of Saudi Arabia is the only world leader who has displayed a full understanding of the threat, and of how serious (even desperate) the situation is today.
Of course it is only natural that the top goal of MB right now is to eliminate Prince Mohammed by all means fair and foul. But why does the Times just echo what Erdogan and MB billionnaires ask them to do, to try to eliminate Prince Mohammed? They talk of the threat to democracy from Russia (which does have some hacker gangsters, to be sure), but dark money totally trumps hackers right now, and guys like the governor of Georgia can hire their own hackers to ensure elections which are thrown to MB puppets, of whom there are many in Congress, eager to pressure Trump to do MB's bidding.
Money in politics is the real swamp, and MB has been delighted to lead the coalition. Those billionnaires mainly get money channelled from oil and they have lots of close friends in oil service companies such as Halliburton headquartered in the Gulf. (Did you imagine they were American? Comparing Cheney to Palpatine is not so far off as most people assume.) Even Flynn worked for Qatar and Erdogan. Poor Trump has been dragged around like a mule, wanting to thrash out of it, but without the awareness needed to do so.
And yes, they even emasculated his space corps plans, unless he has a new general to break Griffin's little games.
I have done my best to make this post simple and direct, because there is a need for much greater first order situational awareness here. In a way, this situation reminds me of physics, where there are lots of important issues over the horizon but where people have to go one step at a time. Because there really is an impulse towards crazy actions this week in Washington, and because my internet access is very limited right now, I have simply chosen not to discuss many important aspects of this situation.
For example, a full understanding requires understanding of all sides. Luda sometimes gets me to watch some netflix which have some bearing – like the one about the Unabomber (very much like MB underneath), Snowden, and United States of Secrets (showing some aspects of Cheney's use of Hayden to rewire administrative agencies and drive folks like Snowden to do what they did). MB is not the first organized group of people to demonstrate the kind of characteristics some call paranoid schizophrenia – immensely clever and competent focused thinking at a kind of tactical level, with gross fatal errors in defining larger goals. We need clearer vision and some kind of bandaids in our thinking to survive the week, but we should not be under the illusion that surviving the week is the only issue before us.
MB and the Times are both right, of course, in saying that the Catholic Church has had many real problems through the years. But so does Islam, and the attacks seem motivated less by a desire to fix and more by a desire to destroy, based on old style zerosum thinking, leading to something far worse. MB has funded and inspired groups who murder Sufis, and anyone who tries to strengthen the direct connections between humans and spirit. It is the old animal authoritarian stuff, motivated by a very mundane instinct like chickens and roosters pecking to try to achieve dominance, with little real care for what gets damaged in the process.
MB is a huge immediate threat, along with the perversions of culture which it and its allies have perpetrated, but there are other schizos in the world too. How to create more balance and more real freedom for real people? Important as that question is, it belongs in another post (though my previous posts give some introduction already).
==The crisis of the week:
MB wants US to help them knock off Prince Mohammed based on his alleged role in death of Khashoggi (Let me call him K.) As if they had not done and ordered many many thousands!
Times keeps repeating the vivid “leaks" from Erdogan. So why believe Erdogan actually knows what happened to K? Erdogan obviously has motive and ability to make up a story to serve his ends, as he has done over and over again. To know something, you must assume he has a reliable agent inside the Embassy, in a position to observe. But: Prince Mohammed's toughest problem is exactly that, agents of MB hard to root out in Saudi itself. Yes he needs to work harder to keep them from performing such operations, but no, it is a gross error to assume he is a likelier puppetmaster here than MB itself. A charitable view of the Times position on this issue is that it resembles their support years back for Condoleezza Rice's plan for instant democracy in Gaza, ever so pious, ever so disastrous.
As for devils and Loyola.. another day.
