Hawkins is good

and makes very enjoyable informative vids, but to me he's like Russell Brand. Entertaining, knowledgeable, talks a great talk, but underneath it all, he's a Socialist.

When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign: that the dunces are all in confederacy against him. ~J. Swift

This guy

Does good video work. Very slick, polished and professional. One could almost wonder if he is associated with CANVAS or OPTOR. He would fit right in with the "demoralization" stage of subvertion.

Even his screen name is demoralizing. Susstein would love him.

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

While I enjoyed this video, I just want to bring attention

to the fact that this stormcloudsgathering guy (Aaron Hawkins) appears to hate private property and the free market.

Listen to the debate between Stephan Molyneux and Aaron Hawkins. It's a long, 1.5 hour debate, so I understand if you don't want to take the time to listen to it. I found it very interesting. Stephan is a great debater and does well here. Aaron makes many economically ignorant statements that make him sound like a progressive.

Listened to the whole thing, very enjoyable.

Very interesting also and almost comical how Stephan tried to stay on point with the meanings of words, very cool, thanks for posting.

My thoughts on the whole affair

I have been aware of the NWO phenomenon for at least a couple of decades and have become aware of huge volumes of associated info. I understand how it can seem overwhelming from the stand point of an individual who is concerned for themselves and their fellow man, but I have come to see it all from a perspective which is more personally responsible and less of the victim.

Even though I acknowledge that there are key powerful people / families who pull all of the strings, there is an aspect to our interconnectedness which I believe plays a pivotal role. Just as has been expressed as much by the suggestion that spreading the awareness of what is going on will make a big difference, when millions of people have a change of heart, everything changes.

I would also go so far as to say that when an individual has a change of heart everything changes, but that is another story. In relation to the "grand plan for the one world government", I see it less as a construct of a minority in power, and more as a manifestation of the consciousness or behaviour of the many. We each contribute to the greater society by holding our own values and making our own choices.

With every action that we make, be it how we choose to spend our money ( i.e where we place our support ), to how we conduct ourselves ethically ( our honesty and commitment to justice ) etc we effect every level of society. Everything has a trickle down effect and nothing is isolated. I believe that our solution to tyranny and the like is personal and does not even need to be associated with resisting it.

The time when enough people start to recognise and treat the brotherhood of man with the care that it has implied, problems such as the global elite will melt away IMO.

Freedom is a byproduct of acceptance - judge not.

Well actually it isnt true

Well actually it isnt true that he literally fiddled an instrument. The fiddle wasnt invented yet. In reality, fiddle was used to describe that his efforts were not effective. I suppose the same still applies today.

Historically accurate, thank you for posting this

SCG has some amazing videos and presents verifiable information from the culprits themselves. This shadow government consists of The Council on Foreign Relations & The Royal Institute of International Affairs. These are unelected, private groups. The other book by Carroll Quigley is "The Anglo-American Establishment" which complements "Tragedy and Hope" and fills in all of the missing historical blanks. Alan Watt has 1500+ hours of talks about this very subject at his site: http://www.cuttingthroughthematrix.com/

Thanks for posting this video...!!!

Root Of The Majestic/Magistique

"Those who suffer from conspiracy phobia are fond of saying: “Do you actually think there’s a group of people sitting around in a room plotting things?” For some reason that image is assumed to be so patently absurd as to invite only disclaimers. But where else would people of power get together – on park benches or carousels? Indeed, they meet in rooms: corporate boardrooms, Pentagon command rooms, at the Bohemian Grove, in the choice dining rooms at the best restaurants, resorts, hotels, and estates, in the many conference rooms at the White House, the NSA, the CIA, or wherever. And, yes, they consciously plot – though they call it “planning” and “strategizing” – and they do so in great secrecy, often resisting all efforts at public disclosure. No one confabulates and plans more than political and corporate elites and their hired specialists. To make the world safe for those who own it, politically active elements of the owning class have created a national security state that expends billions of dollars and enlists the efforts of vast numbers of people."

- Michael Parenti

Portraiture and landscape on The Wall is depicted here in this excellent video survey by StormCloudsGathering. The Big Picture is not just a matter of perspective yet depends upon the frame of your mind.


"Almost as an article of faith, some individuals believe that conspiracies are either kooky fantasies or unimportant aberrations. To be sure, wacko conspiracy theories do exist. There are people who believe that the United States has been invaded by a secret United Nations army equipped with black helicopters, or that the country is secretly controlled by Jews or gays or feminists or black nationalists or communists or extraterrestrial aliens. But it does not logically follow that all conspiracies are imaginary.

Conspiracy is a legitimate concept in law: the collusion of two or more people pursuing illegal means to effect some illegal or immoral end. People go to jail for committing conspiratorial acts. Conspiracies are a matter of public record, and some are of real political significance. The Watergate break-in was a conspiracy, as was the Watergate cover-up, which led to Nixon’s downfall. Iran-contra was a conspiracy of immense scope, much of it still uncovered. The savings and loan scandal was described by the Justice Department as “a thousand conspiracies of fraud, theft, and bribery,” the greatest financial crime in history.

Often the term “conspiracy” is applied dismissively whenever one suggests that people who occupy positions of political and economic power are consciously dedicated to advancing their elite interests. Even when they openly profess their designs, there are those who deny that intent is involved. In 1994, the officers of the Federal Reserve announced they would pursue monetary policies designed to maintain a high level of unemployment in order to safeguard against “overheating” the economy. Like any creditor class, they preferred a deflationary course. When an acquaintance of mine mentioned this to friends, he was greeted skeptically, “Do you think the Fed bankers are deliberately trying to keep people unemployed?” In fact, not only did he think it, it was announced on the financial pages of the press. Still, his friends assumed he was imagining a conspiracy because he ascribed self-interested collusion to powerful people.

At a World Affairs Council meeting in San Francisco, I remarked to a participant that U.S. leaders were pushing hard for the reinstatement of capitalism in the former communist countries. He said, “Do you really think they carry it to that level of conscious intent?” I pointed out it was not a conjecture on my part. They have repeatedly announced their commitment to seeing that “free-market reforms” are introduced in Eastern Europe. Their economic aid is channeled almost exclusively into the private sector. The same policy holds for the monies intended for other countries. Thus, as of the end of 1995, “more than $4.5 million U.S. aid to Haiti has been put on hold because the Aristide government has failed to make progress on a program to privatize state-owned companies” (New York Times 11/25/95)."

Amazing video! Thanks!! It's just as good as this one.

I just discovered this one yesterday, it's more of a history of wars, but I'd give it and the StormClouds video a 10/10 rating.

Spectacular! The best I've ever seen.

Towards the end, the author gives a solution on how we beat the Fed Reserve owners. It's thrilling and chilling. And it's been done before! Listen for the name Philip the Fair (I think was the name of the king) and what he did. Hopefully some patriots in the military will watch, and be inspired!


Happy viewing!

Do you guys know that Hawkins has socialist followers?

Big fan of StormCloudsGathering

And I think this may be the best video so far. Definitely looking forward to the next part(s) in this series.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

This video blows the hell out of the argument

We'll eventually get the right people in office.

The ruling elite could give a damn less about the People or the sham (s)elections they put on from time to time.

Big Bump!!

This is one of the FINEST most sophisticated video/history lessons ever.


It is ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE above any "Establishment" understanding of the way things work.

And SPOT ON at that.

These people at StormCloudsGathering are really advanced, enlightened, illuminated (in the good way lol) individuals.

I was in awe watching this video. Plan to share it far and wide.

THANK YOU for creating this forum and sharing.
