What is the End Game of Government Psychological Warfare and Deception?

Listen up. A society that stops thinking for themselves is a populace that is easily led, easily manipulated and easily controlled whether through propaganda, brainwashing, mind control, or just plain fear-mongering.

White House Resident Joe Biden told CBS’ Scott Pelley on “60 Minutes” last week, “The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with Covid. We’re still doing a lot of work on it. It’s – but the pandemic is over.”

A few days later Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi sent a letter to all Congressional representatives that because of COVID and the “public health emergency is in effect” she was extending proxy voting until November 10, 2022.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) responded in the New York Post, saying “the Commitment to America champions policies to restore voters’ confidence in Congress, starting with ending Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s proxy-voting abuse of power that allowed 90% of House Democrats to get paid without needing to show up for work.”

Democrats and RINOS are again using the COVID-19 pandemic as both psychological warfare disguised as a pandemic threat, and for unconstitutional political purpose. They are gaming the system.

Pelosi and Deep State operatives have repeatedly used COVID to persuade and force citizens to march in lockstep with a police state.

The more nimble and quick Americans recognized the Pelosi-Fauci types were ratcheting up the fear-factor. In retrospect, we know it was a sham–a carefully calibrated crisis set up in time for the 2020 Election and beyond. Part of the control included teaching and training the more gullible to distrust any who diverge from the norm: stay home, wear a mask, get a dangerous shot, vote by mail, etc.

As science writer David Robson explains: “Fears of contagion lead us to become more conformist and tribalistic… Daily reminders of disease may even sway our political affiliations… Various experiments have shown that we become more conformist and respectful of convention when we feel the threat of a disease… the evocative images of a pandemic led [participants in an experiment] to value conformity and obedience over eccentricity or rebellion.”

This is not a new experiment in mind control.

Add the government’s bias and capabilities to monitor online activity and change truth to so-called “disinformation,” and we settle in with false polices for speech, assembly, worship and employment. Using the three giant propaganda megaphones of…

🔹Media,

🔹Academia

🔹Hollywood

…ensures that facts conform to whatever version of reality the progressive propagandists embrace.

“…it is an illusion to believe that we as conservatives or as Christians can retreat into our private spaces, drive our pick-up truck to school or to work, pray in church, and (those who oppose Christianity) will leave us unmolested,” Dinesh D’Souza explained it back in 2016.

The policing of your mind in schools, in the military, on television and in news media reveals the dangers of how information and communication sources are gradually being linked together into a single computerized network. The result is intended to be your unrecognized and near anonymous control of what you will see broadcasted, what will hear, and ultimately what you will think.

Consider the state and federal level hate crime legislation that is intended to subdue so-called “hateful” thoughts and expression.

🔹It encourages and trains self-censoring and reduces free debate on various subject matter.

🔹The end goal of these mind-control campaigns—packaged in the guise of the greater good—is to see how far the American people will allow the government to go in re-shaping the country in the image of a totalitarian police state.

Do you recognize NEW WORLD ORDER and WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM creeping forward yet?

🔹The government’s fear-mongering is yet another key element in its mind-control programming.

🔹The formula is a simple tried and tested one. National crises, global pandemics, reported terrorist attacks, and sporadic shootings leave us in a constant state of fear.

🔹The emotional panic that accompanies fear actually shuts down the prefrontal cortex or the rational thinking part of our brains. In other words, when we are consumed by fear, we stop thinking.

🔹Fear not only increases the power of government, but it also divides the people into factions, persuades them to see each other as the enemy and keeps them screaming at each other so that they drown out all other sounds. In this way, they will never reach consensus about anything and will be too distracted to notice the police state closing in on them until the final crushing curtain falls.

The frightening part for me is that so many Americans don’t even realize they are being brainwashed—manipulated—into adopting an “us” against “them” mindset. All the while, those in power—bought and paid for by lobbyists and corporations—move their costly agendas forward.

One of the great American theorists, Edward L. Bernays was my introduction to propaganda studies originally going back to the late 1970s. What he referred to as “an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country,” makes more sense now. We call it the “Deep State.”

Nurse Dodie’s Myths About Nutrition Debunked

The big myth I heard most during 40 years of nursing and training others about pregnancy, childbirth, nutrition and good health, is that “eating healthy is too expensive.”

It may sometimes take some planning and time in the kitchen, but eating healthy on a budget is possible. Plus, it could save far more health related expenses in the future. Plan meals and snacks around sales.

Here are ways to make it happen:

🔹Shop seasonally, especially with fruits and vegetables.

🔹Create a shopping list and stick to it.

🔹Stock up on staples, such as brown rice, whole-wheat pasta, dried beans and lentils, when on sale.

🔹Consider purchasing frozen or canned fruits and vegetables as an alternative to fresh products. Be sure to check the ingredient list to avoid items with added sugars or salt.

Using Neuro Linguistic Programming to Modify People’s Thinking

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else. You are the one who gets burned.’

Powerful Winning Hacks That Take Venom Out of Angry People

During a job performance review in the 1990s, my boss, H-E-B Food-Drugs Vice President Ralph Mehringer said something that I remember to this day.

“You have the unique ability to take the venom out of angry people,” he noted. “You quickly de-fang them.”

I liked that.

Ralph is a keen observer and calls it as he sees it. His words were motivating, so of course, it reinforced my learning and practicing.

I became interested in studying Neuro Linguistic Programming, or NLP for short. Eventually I became a certified NLP Practitioner.

It helped immensely in leadership and dealing with others through powerful techniques such as “anchoring,” reading body language and facial expressions, “reframing thoughts” and building rapport.

As the years progressed, “de-fanging” became natural and automatic-like.

Here are some tips I learned along the way and continue to use today:

1. When someone is angry and confrontational, stand next to them, rather than in front of them. You want to appear not to be much of a threat, after all you’re physically on their side, and they eventually calm down.

2. Slow the pace of speech.They are likely to be yelling or talking rapidly. It’s critical not to engage in a like manner. When it’s your turn to reply, do so in a deliberate, kind, quiet and slower tone.

4. Rephrase what the other person says and repeat it back to them. In that slower, quieter voice, this helps you understand their concern. This makes them feel you care and are listening to them. It shows your genuine interest in them. It validates them and helps you. Note: Don’t overdo it. You don’t want to appear condescending.

3. Open with “I need your help.” Most people don’t like the guilt of not helping someone out. When asking for a favor from someone, begin with “I need your help.” It GREATLY increases the chances of getting the favor done. But best of all, it can be used as an opening line to someone very irritated about something. Usually I act innocently not knowing why they’re upset. It’s a good precursor to leading them out of their anger towards a better outlook.

5. If you want someone to agree with you, nod while you talk. I learned this as a door-to-door insurance salesman in the early 1980s and discovered it works well with group presentations too. When you notice them beginning to change their attitude, or better yet nod back, you’re on the right track. They are beginning to subconsciously agree with you.

6. If someone doesn’t like you, ask to borrow a pencil or pen. This is called the Benjamin Franklin Effect. It’s just a small favor that actually helps nudge them to like you. Not as effective, but still good, is to subtly touch someone’s upper arm when you ask for a favor.

7. Mimic them without them realizing it. It’s called mirroring and takes some practice. It has to be subtle and with finesse. If you don’t feel comfortable doing it try folding your arms in a non-threatening way. It helps to determine their interest. If someone is observing you, they will likely mimic you.

8. Repeat a person’s name many times in the conversation. Don’t overdo it, but it helps you remember their name, and makes them like you more.

9. If the person is a child, bring bubbles. Hint: this can work for adults too. Bubbles are magical mood changers.

Please note this article begins a series on posts offered to help our readers understand how NLP can not only help you in everyday life and business practice, but reveals the ways politicians, propagandists and others can manipulate your thought process to change your beliefs.

← MAGA Caps Making Early 

Where Did ‘He Ain’t Heavy He’s My Brother’ Come From?

During World War II (1945), a Japanese boy stood in front of a funeral pyre and waited his turn to cremate his little dead brother.

The person who took the photograph said, in an interview, that the boy was biting his lips so hard to keep from crying that blood was dripping from the corner of his mouth.

It was then that the guard asked him for the body and said, “Give me the load you are carrying on your back.” And the boy answered:

“He ain’t heavy, he is my brother”. He handed over the body, turned around, and left…

In Japan, even today, this image is used as a symbol of strength.

In college during the mid 1970s, I had the opportunity to meet and interview some music entertainers of the times. As the Fine Arts Editor for the Southwest Texas State (now Texas State) University Star, it helped me go backstage for artists like Freddy Mercury and Queen, Willie Nelson, Jackson Browne, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Alvin Lee with Ten Years After, and more.

One of my classmates was a young fellow who would sit out in the hall before a business class trying to catch up because he had been out singing late into the night before. You may have heard of him–George Strait.

A special moment was meeting Kenny Loggins and Jim Messina backstage before their San Antonio Municipal Auditorium (now the expanded Tobin Center) concert. I secured autographs, asked a few questions and was allowed to watch their sound check.

From the side of the stage they sat on stools, side-by-side, singing to an empty auditorium that would soon be filled to the brim.

The song was “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother.” I had heard the recordings by The Hollies and Neil Diamond, but this one time “personal” performance remains in my heart and memories to this day.

It was written by Bobby Scott and Bob Russell. They only met three times to collaborate before Russell died of lymphoma.

A guy name Reginald played piano on The Hollies’ version which was released in 1970. It was a worldwide hit. You likely know the piano player by another name–Elton John.

The title actually didn’t come from the Japanese picture shown above. It came from the motto for Boys Town, a community formed in 1917 by a Catholic priest named Father Edward Flanagan.

Located in Omaha, Nebraska, it was a place where troubled or homeless boys could come for help. In 1941, Father Flanagan was looking at a magazine called The Messenger when he came across a drawing of a boy carrying a younger boy on his back, with the caption, “He ain’t heavy Mr., he’s my brother.”

Today, there is a statue with that phrase that serves as the symbol for Boys Town.

In 1938, actor Spencer Tracey portrayed Father Flanagan in the movie Boys Town, which also starred Mickey Rooney. In 1941, they made a sequel called Men Of Boys Town, where they used the phrase “He ain’t heavy, Father, he’s my brother” for the first time in a movie.

Why It Is Critical Now To Know Exactly Where You Stand

 Sometimes, if you are capable, it is a good idea to know where you stand.

Those of us who know some history tend to understand (where we stand) versus those who skip the historical lessons.

Those who spend their time on less reading, more television propaganda, lots of video gaming, and indoctrination activities have no clue where they are standing.

A lot of times, you’ll get exactly what you put up with, no more and no less.

Once you start catering to people’s pathologies, it seldom ends well or at a reasonable point.

One of the best rules to live by is if you realize there’s something you should do, but you’re afraid to do it, you MUST do it. It’s hard at first, but after you overcome your fears enough times, you learn to live a life without fear.

Not that you feel it, you do, but once you believe you can force yourself to act even though you’re afraid, fear isn’t that troubling of an emotion.

Unless you understand both sides of the argument, you don’t understand the argument.

If you listen to God when He whispers, He won’t have to lead a whale into your life to swallow you in order to get your attention.

If someone couldn’t tell what your priorities are by watching you for a week, maybe you’re fooling yourself about your priorities.

It is time. Honor those who fought and advocated for our freedoms. Do your duty.

Vote in person. Share wisdom, truth and real history. Less TV (far less). Read. Walk. Smile. Defend freedom. Pray.

What Does the Bible Say About the Christian Lifestyle?

Christians should live as ambassadors for Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:20 says, “Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.”

Christians should live to glorify God.
1 Corinthians 10:31-33 says, “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. Give no offense, either to the Jews or to the Greeks or to the church of God, just as I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.”

Christians should love God and avoid the lusts of the flesh.
1 John 2:15-16 says, “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.”

Christians should live completely for God, not patterning their lives after the world.
Romans 12:1-2 says, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”

Christians should think about things that are pure and holy.
Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.”

Christians are changed by what they see.
2 Corinthians 3:18 says, “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”

Things My Policeman Father Taught Me

Some of our regular readers know, my father, Walter “Corky” Dennis was a policeman, homicide detective for the San Antonio Police Department for decades.

What Does the Bible Say About Child Training?

🔹What is the value of early attention to child training? It’s in the Bible, Proverbs 22:6, NIV.

“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”

🔹What does God expect from parents as they raise children? Parents must be godly examples in words and actions. It’s in the Bible, Deuteronomy 6:6-7, NIV

“These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”

🔹God expects parents to be patient. It’s in the Bible, Colossians 3:21, TLB.

“Fathers, don’t scold your children so much that they become discouraged and quit trying.”

🔹What does God expect of a mother?It’s in the Bible, Proverbs 31:26, TLB.

“When she speaks, her words are wise, and kindness is the rule for everything she says.”

🔹Discipline is an expression of parental love. It’s in the Bible, Proverbs 13:24, TLB.

“If you refuse to discipline your son, it proves you don’t love him; for if you love him, you will be prompt to punish him.”

🔹Kind, firm correction helps children learn. It’s in the Bible, Proverbs 29:15, TLB.

“Scolding and spanking a child helps him to learn. Left to himself, he brings shame to his mother.”

🔹The purpose of discipline is to help the children mature, not to anger them. It’s in the Bible, Ephesians 6:4, TLB.

“And now a word to you parents. Don’t keep on scolding and nagging your children, making them angry and resentful. Rather, bring them up with the loving discipline the Lord Himself approves, with suggestions and godly advice.”

🔹Children often bear the consequences of their parents’ sins. It’s in the Bible, Exodus 34:7, TLB.

“I, Jehovah, show this steadfast love to many thousands by forgiving their sins; or else I refuse to clear the guilty, and require that a father’s sins be punished in the sons and grandsons, and even later generations.”

🔹What response does God expect from children? It’s in the Bible, Ephesians 6:1, NIV

“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.”

Are Mega Windmills Really Awesome as Big Environment Proclaims?

A two-megawatt windmill is made up of 260 tons of steel that required 300 tons of iron ore and 170 tons of coking coal, all mined, transported and produced by hydrocarbons.

It holds 700 gallons of oil and hydraulic fluid, and just as a car, these need to be replaced every 9 months.

People might fall for the idea that we can merrily run on sunshine and breezes alone, but with a few trillion dollars worth of mythical mega-batteries providing backup for a few minutes, it could spin until it falls apart over and over again and never generate as much energy as was invested in building it.

In fact installing the foundation of a single offshore turbine can consume 18,857 barrels of marine fuel during construction, according to calculations published by Forbes.

Offshore wind farms often have over 100 wind turbines, meaning that building them requires almost 2 million barrels of fuel just to power the ships involved in construction.

“You can’t even construct or operate offshore wind turbines without oil,” Chris Warren, a spokesman for the free-market Institute for Energy Research, explains. “For decades, we have been told that wind, solar, and other so-called ‘green’ sources are the future, and yet these sources remain expensive, intermittent, and unreliable despite government mandates and subsidies. Offshore wind in particular remains one of the most expensive sources of electricity that exists.”

Consider the life cycle of a wind turbine:

🔹giant diesel powered mining trucks and machines dig deep into the earth for iron ore

🔹fossil-fueled ships take the ore to a facility that will use fossil fuels to crush it and permeate it with petro-chemicals to extract the metal from the ore

🔹This metal will be taken in a diesel truck or locomotive to a smelter which runs exclusively on fossil fuels 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for the 12 to 20 years they may last

🔹There are over 8,000 parts to a wind turbine which are delivered over global supply chains via petroleum-fueled ships, rail, air, and trucks to the assembly factory.

🔹There are 435 million miles of asphalted roads in the world. Wind turbines and solar panels and their raw materials depend on these roads, and the energy to build and maintain them. Roads are how the diesel cement trucks arrive at the wind turbine site to pour many tons of concrete while other diesel trucks carry segments of the wind turbine to the site and workers arrive in gas or diesel vehicles to assemble it.

Turbine being loaded in China for ship transportation.

.

Here are more considerations not usually revealed in corporate media, Big Energy, Big Environment and the Biden White House:

🔹Windmills require petroleum every single step of their life cycle. If they can’t replicate themselves using wind turbine generated electricity, they are not sustainable

🔹Not enough dispatchable power, such as natural gas or hydropower, to balance wind intermittency and unreliability.

🔹Wind blows seasonally, so for much of the year there isn’t adequate wind.

🔹The role of an electrical grid is to keep the supply of power steady and predictable. Wind does the opposite, at some point of penetration, it may become impossible to keep the grid from crashing.

🔹Windmills can’t be built without huge subsidies and tax breaks.

🔹The best wind is too high to capture.

🔹Wide-scale US wind power could cause significant global warming. A Harvard study raises questions about just how much wind should be part of a climate solution.

🔹Wind is only strong enough to justify windmills in a few limited regions.

🔹Wind blows the strongest when customer demand is generally the weakest.

🔹Wind Power surges harm industrial customers.

🔹Windmills take up too much space

🔹Wind turbines break down too often.

🔹Large-scale wind energy slows down winds and reduces turbine efficiencies.

🔹Offshore windmills battered by waves, wind, ice, corrosion, are a true hazard to ships and ecosystems.

🔹Offshore wind farms are susceptible to hurricane destruction.

🔹The costs of lightning damage are extremely high.

🔹Turbines increase the cost of farming.

🔹Wind turbines are already going out of business and fewer are being built in Europe

🔹Germany has been spending more for much longer than other nations, and Energiewiende is a huge failure

🔹The quality of wind resources is location specific, with the best locations often found far from the load center where the transmission grid already exists.

🔹Dead bugs, birds and salt reduce wind power generation by 20 to 30%.

🔹Wind turbines are so much more expensive to decommission than construct, they are so often not even recycled. Here is one of hundreds of graveyards:

🔹Decommissioning wind turbines costs as much as $500,000 per wind turbine

🔹Transmission lines need to be much longer than for traditional plants, and are likely to spark firestorms causing billions in damage.

🔹Wind turbines threaten biodiversity in hundreds of protected, key biodiverse and wilderness areas

🔹Operations and Maintenance (O&M) costs are extremely high.

🔹Increasingly high insurance costs from hurricanes, wildfires, tornadoes, defective equipment, untrained personnel and more.

🔹Blades need to be de-iced with helicopters in the winter.

🔹When oil prices rise, the cost of building and maintaining wind turbines rises.
