Fear is the currency of tyranny. Why listen to the drum beat?

Russia, North Korea, Terrorism… Fear as Currency of Western Tyranny

By Finian Cunningham

February 11, 2016 “Information Clearing House” – “RT” –  For those with a weak heart it has been a testing week. Russian nuclear aggression, North Korea’s ballistic missiles, terrorists planning to attack the US and Europe. Please almighty, benevolent Washington – protect us!

History has long shown that fear is the currency of rule by tyrants. Get the people to fear some external enemy and then you can command their submission to any form of control – because it’s for their “protection”.

Organized crime calls it a “protection racket”; colonial powers called it “protectorates”; and modern Western supposed democracies claim it is in the name of “state security”.

In many ways it constitutes a risible ruse that should be easily seen through for the farce that it is. But the otherwise unbelievable farce is given a facade of plausibility, credibility and normality due to the immense conditioning power of the Western news media.

That, by the way, is why alternative new outlets are so vilified by Western powers because they dispel the fiction in a way that exposes the fiction-tellers as the dupes, liars and charlatans that they are.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov this week pointed out the absurdity of Washington and its NATO allies hyping the “myth of Russia’s threat” to Europe. Particularly insulting to ordinary decent human intelligence is the claim put out by Western countries that “Russia is planning to use nuclear weapons to intimidate Sweden and the Baltic countries.”

As ever, Washington and its NATO allies do not present evidence to support their far-fetched claims. Tendentious assertions are simply turned into “facts” by force of repetition and dissemination, and sheer double think, as illustrated by NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg making the bizarre statement that the military alliance is not posing a threat to Russia.

The fear factor in this case works to subdue public criticism in NATO countries of their governments piling up more military firepower around Russia’s borders. This week, the American Pentagon announces plans to increase its military spending in Europe fourfold to $3.4 billion, purportedly to “deter Russia’s threat”. Not only is this expenditure depriving American people of needed public services, such as clean drinking water, it is actually a deeply provocative act of aggression towards Russia.

But the trick tends to work, with apparent public consent, because it is all done in the name of “protecting us” from “evil Russians”.

The same goes for implementing state emergency powers in France this week and the long-established post 9/11 so-called Patriot legislation in the US, giving the authorities license to erode civil liberties.

The US Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told Congress this week that the country is facing a major attack this year from the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIL/ ISIS) terror group. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer described Clapper’s presentation as “a sober assessment”, thus giving it a veneer of substance. But in reality all that the intelligence (sic) chief said was that there were thousands of ISIS cadres in 40 different countries. How this presents a clear and imminent security danger to the US is not evidenced, but no doubt it will serve to maintain, if not extend, federal police powers against their own citizens.

And, of course, CNN or any other Western corporate media outlet would never question or probe the origins of ISIS and other Al Qaeda-linked terror networks as a willful creation of American, British, French, Saudi and Turkish state intelligence.

In the same Congress briefing, the US disinformation chief also gave a grim assessment of North Korea producing plutonium for nuclear weapons. Clapper said with apparent gravity that the secretive authoritarian state is “making steps towards developing intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) which could target the United States.” And, dutifully, the Western news media amplify those words in order to give them credibility and ominousness.

A BBC World news ticker read: “North Korea close to having bomb”. Funnily enough, the very next ticker headline read: “Andy Murray’s wife has a baby”.

So you see, not only are vacuous claims about the alleged threat from North Korea transformed into a seemingly serious fact, the issue is also given a sense of normalcy and banality by mixing it up with news on a tennis player’s family.

Last week, North Korea did indeed launch a ballistic rocket into outer space to put an observation satellite in orbit. Yes, the launch breached UN resolutions banning Kim Jong-Un’s regime from using ballistic power. Pyongyang is no doubt using the satellite story as a cover for testing dual ballistic technology that could be, eventually, used to build an ICBM.

And, yes, North Korea carried out a nuclear test explosion last month – the fourth such explosion since 2006, again in violation of UN resolutions.
But such activity is a distant remove from actually being able to mount a nuclear warhead on to a serviceable ICBM and to be able to fire the weapon thousands of kilometers. Most international ballistic experts do not believe that North Korea is anywhere near that stage of development.

The AFP news agency quoted aerospace engineer John Schilling, who has closely followed the North’s missile program, as saying: “An ICBM warhead, unlike a satellite, needs to come down as well as go up. North Korea has never demonstrated the ability to build a re-entry vehicle that can survive at even half the speed an ICBM would require.”

In short, despite what the US and heaps of Western media coverage would have us believe, North Korea is not a threat to international security. Sure, the secretive state can be said to be in breach of UN resolutions. But a nuclear enemy of the world it is most certainly not.

Meanwhile, Washington possesses more than 1,500 actively deployed nuclear warheads across the globe, ready to launch at the touch of a button. The US is the only country to have ever used nuclear weapons, killing more than 200,000 people in the attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Nearly, 40 years after signing the Non-Proliferation Treaty mandating nuclear disarmament, the US is in a process of upgrading its nuclear arsenal at a cost of $1 trillion over the next 30 years.

Behind all the bombast over North Korea’s alleged “threat”, the US is moving ahead with the deployment in South Korea and Japan of its “missile shield” system. Such a move is much more destabilizing to international security than any alleged violation by North Korea, because as China and Russia have consistently argued over many years, such a so-called defense shield tends to give the US a “first strike nuclear capability”. That increases the risk of a nuclear war, making nuclear weapons escalation a relentless tendency rather than disarmament. So who is the rogue state here?

It should be noted too that the US-led NATO alliance is pushing ahead with deploying a similar missile shield system in Poland, Romania and Bulgaria, at the same time that NATO is building up ever-more of a presence.

Where is the accountability of Western governments to their public for such provocative, precarious, police-state policies? If there is no accountability, then that is the definition of tyrannical power.

But how could such tyranny pertain in notional democracies, you may ask? Fear. Fear is the currency of tyranny. And servile news organizations – more accurately perception-management services – condition public acceptance of these fears. Fears that in a more rational perspective would be dismissed as outrageous fabrications.

  1. On the topic of fear. Bearing in mind how I have noticed the very divergent opinions between Dublinmick and Laura Walker about Nibiru/Planet X. And how I left a comment somewhere (cant remember where), about how Paul Laviolette doesn’t really feature Nibiru threat on his etheric.com website. yet he does concern himself a lot with a galactic core Superwave. And I raised the point, I didn’t see why TPTB would be going to all the trouble of chemtrailing, GMOing, fracking, warmongering, smartmetering, vaccinating. Why bother if Planet X the Destroyer is right here now? And I mentioned our 6th and 7th chakras and the Superwave.AND I DONT NECESSARILY THINK THIS WILL ANNHILATE US ALL, WE CAN BUFFER IT MUCH BETTER THAN A PLANET X
    So bearing all that in mind, take a look at this 2 days ago
    Prophecy of Bulgarian Mystic Peter Deunov Predicts Coming Superwave 39 Years Before the Superwave Theory Was First Proposed


    Posted February 11, 2016
    P. LaViolette

    Just days before his death on December 27, 1944, well known Bulgarian mystic Peter Deunov had a vision which inspired him to relate a prophecy of what was in store for the human race in the century that was to follow. Deunov, also known to Bulgarians by his spiritual name Beinsa Douno, was a philosopher, musician and spiritual teacher who developed a form of esoteric Christianity. Curiously, his prophecy anticipated in great detail the concept of a superwave which he predicted was to purify the Earth in the very near future and not only bring about tremendous geological transformation, but also spiritually change the world, bringing into being a new human race, the “sixth race.”

    One would do well to read his amazing prophecy which is related in this four page document which is an adaptation written by Olivier de Rouvroy – September 2003: http://www.progressions.info/Peter%20Deunov.pdf. Alternatively, for a synopsis one can also view the following youtube video which tells a bit about Deunov’s life and narrates highlights of his superwave/human transformation prophecy:

    Peter Deunov begins his prophecy with an accurate reference to a coming Galactic superwave. He states:

    “…everybody will soon be subjugated to divine Fire, that will purify and prepare them in regards to the New Era.

    Some decades will pass before this Fire will come, that will transform the world by bringing it a new moral. This immense wave comes from cosmic space and will inundate the entire earth. All those that attempt to oppose it will be carried off and transferred elsewhere.

    Although the inhabitants of this planet do not all find themselves at the same degree of evolution, the new wave will be felt by each one of us. And this transformation will not only touch the Earth, but the ensemble of the entire Cosmos.”

    Later he refers to terrestrial upheavals which indicate the occurrence of tremendous climatic and seismic effects. He states:

    “There will be floods, hurricanes, gigantic fires and earthquakes that will sweep away everything. Blood will flow in abundance. There will be revolutions; terrible explosions will resound in numerous regions of the earth. There where there is earth, water will come, and there where there is water, earth will come.”

    Further on he refers to waves of “cosmic electricity” (cosmic ray electrons?) which will sweep the Earth. Indeed, the main component of a superwave would be its cosmic ray electrons. Here he indicates an ongoing volley:

    “The earth will soon be swept by extraordinary rapid waves of Cosmic Electricity. A few ……..continued at link

    First Discovery of Quadrupole Gravity Waves Still Does Not Prove Existence of Black Holes

    Posted by P. LaViolette, February 12, 2016
    Thanks to George Papado and Patricia Lagrange for notifying me of these news releases.

    After sitting on their discovery for 5 months, scientists affiliated with the LIGO observatories finally announced that they had for the first time unequivocally detected a gravity wave. This culminated a four decade search for gravity waves. First, one may note that if our own Galactic center were ever to launch a killer gravity wave heralding a coming superwave, don’t expect to hear about it from LIGO. They will likely sit on the data for months and then you would never hear about it because all global communication systems would be down two days later after the gamma ray/cosmic ray pulse arrived.

    This gravity wave was seen on September 14, 2015 in LIGO’s raw signal data as a 35 Hertz oscillation which sped up to 250 Hertz. The scientific community in their highly elated state leapt onto the bandwagon to proclaim that they had just observed the fusion of two black holes, having masses of 36 and 29 solar masses respectively; see stories available at:

      RT news….. reference …..illuminati afficionado…Einstein and the …DISCREDITED ….”gravitational” waves, “recently” discovered by LIGO !


      In your comment above you mention Paul Laviolettes reference to a…… Galactic Core Superwave.

      I am wondering if…….

      1) Einsteins “gravitational” waves………
      the RT…. BS ?….story.
      2) Paul Laviolettes ….Galactic Core Superwave.
      3) Niburu….a FAKE destruction story promulgated by the ill-LOONATI.

      Are….ONE and the SAME ? ?

      The…. SATANIC SCUM ….AGENDA….is to harness the …NATURAL ENERGY…of a cosmic superwave, which they are calling….Einsteins “gravitational waves”…….and…..with a few …PYROTECHNICS….”rod from God”….etc will ….CONvert….a natural event into an….EARTH DESTROYING event ? ?

      Gordon posted a revelatory and mind boggling link reference the ….phenomenon of TONGUE DISPLAY !


      The article refers to a……DESTROYING RAY !
      I believe, the “deity” she refers to is …….SCUM-bag …..EVIL………..

      Writing in 1962 Alice Bailey speaks in Esoteric Psychology Vol 1 about this destroyer
      “The will of Deity coloured the stream of energy units which we call by the name of the Ray of Will or Power, the first ray,3 and the impact of that stream on the
      matter of space insured that the hidden purpose of Deity would inevitably and eventually be revealed. It is a ray of such dynamic intensity that we call it the ray of the Destroyer. It is not as yet functioning actively. It will come into full play only when the time comes for the purpose to be safely revealed.” pg 27

      That sounds very ominous and threatening and when you dig deeper it is since the First Ray is called by Alice Bailey
      “the ray of the destroyer” pg 27 Esoteric Psychology Volume 1,

      which she explains is
      “the work of antichrist” pg 44 Esoteric Psychology Volume 1.

      Now Antichrist to Alice Bailey and Occultists is not a bad thing. They consider it is merely the flip side of building. Yin and Yang.

        If my suspicions above are correct…..

        I deny consent …I deny consent …I deny consent.

      • Kingel its very interesting, but im lost your comment above, what it means. gravity waves, I seem to have a mental block on them.
        Are you saying the nibiru, superwave, Alice bailey the destroyer, are all fake psyops?
        Or is Baileys the Destroyer, real and imminent?
        Bailey was an occultist. Not wanting the masses to know truth. Occult. Hidden to the few
        Could it be whatevers coming, would blow it all away for them, the last thing they want is you and I, the man in the street, to have their 6th and 7th chakras opened up? Communicating with God freely, and not controllable by any Khazar or whoever else? Independent

        But overall Kingel. Please forgive my thickness, needing an in a nutshell summary. But what is your conclusion above, in simple terms? Im simple minded, and prefer it that way, a simple life

      I am wondering if a ….NATURALLY CREATED ENERGY WAVE…..EVENT………is about to occur ?

      An energy wave that will effect a DNA and neurological …UPGRADE… in mankind ?

      An energy wave that might open up the 6th and 7th chakras and………DEPOSE the “EL-iteS” from THEIR usurped positions of …..UNLAWFUL DOMINATION ?

      An….UPGRADE….that the…. “EL-iteS” …….SATANIC-i’ll thieve everything SCUM……….know about.

      An ….UPGRADE….whose ….KNOWLEDGE…..has been denied to mankind ?

      Media talk about an …….UPCOMING ENERGY EVENT…….

      1) Paul Laviolette……is talking about a ……Galactic Core Super wave.

      2) RT…….ran an article based on Einsteins discredited “gravitational” theory saying or, intimating that ……FORCES of ENERGY are operating in Space and there may be some FUTURE REPERCUSSIONS…… from these ….ENERGIES.

      3) Planet X Niburu.
      WE ….are all doomed.
      We are going to be wiped from the face of the Earth.
      WE….the 99% ! !

      4) Alice Bailey an….OCCULTIST…..a…MANIPULATOR of the TRUTH…..a….VILE specimen of INHUMANITY…wrote in 1962 of……….
      “ENERGY UNITS……. and ………
      A RAY of such DYNAMIC INTENSITY that …we call it the ….RAY of the DESTROYER”.

      Alice Bailey went on to say……
      “It is not as yet functioning actively.
      It will come into full play only when the time comes for the purpose to be safely revealed”.

      Alice Bailey described it……..

      “The ray of the destroyer…..the work of antichrist”

      As an “occultist” it is likely Alice Bailey had a connection to the “ILL-LOONATI” and knew that MANKIND… would receive an ……UPGRADE……derived from a …Galactic Superwave.

      An …UPGRADE…that would …..DEMOTE….the SCUM.

      An ….UPGRADE….that would have to be ….CO-OPTED & CORRUPTED…….in order to …….PREVENT and THWART the ASCENDANCE of MAN-KIND.

      I am wondering if a ….NATURALLY OCCURRING SUPER WAVE…is imminent.
      A super wave that will create a ….NATURAL ENHANCEMENT in mankind.
      A super wave that will….ACTIVATE..in mankind …ALL STRANDS of DNA ….returning to mankind the ……SUPERLATIVE POWERS…..previously possessed ?

      If ?…..this is the case……. ?
      a$hkeNAZI …….degenerates…..will do everything they can to PREVENT it.

      So….I am wondering if a ….NATURALLY OCCURRING SUPER WAVE……is about to be ….HIJACKED ?

      Hijacked and ….CORRUPTED….with a few…..PYROTECHNICS…..”rod from God”….stuff ?

      Hijacked, corrupted and the ….ENSUING CHAOS…….attributed to a ……”planet” named “niburu” ?

      a$hkeNAZI scum doing what they do best……….

    It is BS to scare the masses. They think nothing through and are stupid. We are catching them out with some very clever Intel. The Zika virus failed because the real doctors investigated. Then they blamed Roundup. Then they dropped mozzies over the areas that don’t survive the temps..so dying immediately. How screwed up are their plans. If they wanted superiority surley you would invent a master race…not dumb down everyone else to make you look bigger and better. Stupid only does stupid. The clever Intel have them marked for the sub humans they really are. Let’s keep spreading the news.

    • Great point Lynn. They have amassive chip on their shoulders for millennia, their Neadnerthal Haplotype roots. Letsnot beat around the bush. There is intelligence there too, in a very evil paranoid warped way. I hesitate to think and go too far back, because WHO KNOWS exactly whats gone down whether with annunaki, alien creators, whatever. Atlantis. WE DONT KNOW FOR SURE.

      But the point im driving at is. The type of sly insidious viruslike evil of these Pharisee Ashkenazi Khazars . We must start thinking in terms of………demonic entities who have invaded earth, and inhabited the Neandethals.

      How? I think…..there might be truth in the idea of stargate portals at leyline crossing vortex points. This needs more thought. But the evil and awful ways they have, and mentality, it is alien that’s for sure

    They all seem to blow themselves up sooner or later don’t they?

    That is a very interesting concept on the super wave. I will have to go over and finish reading it.

    It took a while to dig this up, I mirrored it years ago off Rense. It is a piece by Karl Schwarz, the guy who ran fro president, got fed up and moved to Czechoslavakia.

    Betelgeuse BOOM – Calamitas Apocalyptica

    This is what I was referring to:


    This was the article that had the discussion and the link:


    My instincts say Earth may well be facing foreclosure and eviction. This area of the Milky Way galaxy may be destined to become a star creation nursery in the future. That is when the clock of the Universe process starts over, along with evolution of new life forms. Everything in the way has to be demolished, possibly even us. I guess we could consider it God’s version of urban renewal. It may not set well with inhabitants of Earth but this entire area might be rezoned for something of a higher and better use.
