I call 'em how I see 'em

Hopefully by now many of you know that I dedicate a more than reasonable amount of energy toward researching and sifting the truth out of the sea of misleading information available today. I also have spent the better part of the last 20 years preparing for these days to help those who are awake stay alert and aware. There are so many tricksters and shills operating these days it is out of control. From my perspective, the shit hit the fan a long time ago, and as predicted, millions of people woke up a little bit and started asking some questions. I do not ever try to sway anyone to think one way or another about anything. I freely and openly admit when I am wrong and happily change my opinion if presented with enough solid facts. I hope you can all continue doing the same. I have seen so many of you go from wondering to knowing and it warms my heart. I just want you all to know that if I ever come across as rude or blunt, it is not meant to be that way. The most important thing we have is truth, if we can't be trusted to bear it, what good are we? Conclusions can only be drawn after you have exhausted your research and have enough solid data to make a reasonable, objective anaylsis. Your findinds may not be what people want to hear all the time, but they will be the TRUTH. I generally research a topic or watch a trend for months or even years before commenting on it anywhere.
Stay awake everybody, it's gonna be a bumpy road ahead. We need you all keenly aware.

Mike, You are doing a great job!

Great post! You have alot of patience and sometimes it is only natural that it might wear a little thin! I have seen you be blunt... but it has never appeared rude in my view. The truth hurts and I think it is human nature to want to deny it sometimes. I believe that goes along with the Mental Preparedness post. I've learned alot of new truth in a relatively short amount of time...things I did not want to beleive and at times it has been so overwhelming I became temporarily paralyzed. I agree , we all need to sharpen our research and critical thinking skills and also steel ourselves mentally /emotionally for some very tough times. The more I know and take time to discern.. the better I feel prepared. I have been reading alot of history also and that helps my perspective immensly! I really feel sorry for the ones that are going to be hit hard when the SHTF...those that won't even have a clue as to why and how it is happening.
Keep up the effort ..it all helps! Just today as I have come back on I seem to sense a change in the level of discourse here.. for the better!

Thomas, maybe you do lack patience, but...

... you have passion and a good heart and mean your efforts toward a good end.

Your efforts and good intentions are not unnoticed...especially with Whom that matters.

You will get to that end more effectively by sowing the right seeds.

Seek understanding regarding this. It will not be in vain. :)

I agree

We all need to keep digging and learning!

Nice post Mike. I think

Nice post Mike.

I think many of us sometimes have come off as rude, I know I have, although I have been ableto learn a lot this past year or so on how to present my case on forums. We can all learn from each other, we can even learn from people we dislike or disagree with if we just learn to listen once in a while.

What I usually do now before posting is listen to the words of a wise man name Ron Paul "We can never force our good will on others; We must set good examples and hope people wish to emulate us"

This is also a good rule to follow : A wise man learns from the mistakes of others to where a fool only learns from his own!

You're doing just fine, Mike...

When I hear two points of view from two great patriots that makes sense...I just go back to see what the good Doctor says about the subject and run with that ALWAYS. He is my leader and certainly knows a lot better than I.

Thanks , Mike, for your insights and clarification of issues.

I have never learned so much so fast in the area of politics, economics, and world affairs as I have in the few months of being part of DP. I think it is because we are all researchers and head off naturally in multiple directions if something is brought to our attention. It is like a big think tank, and most of us multitask by nature. For me it all started with hearing Ron Paul just once on TV. He was so different from anyone I had heard. Most others I dismissed as not worth listening to. He seems to have positive effect on everyone who hears him, even the media, if they are at all capable of hearing. Some are totally lost in the fog; regret to say. But if we keep telling the same story over and over and make it as simple as possible we will eventually get through!

you work hard for liberty...deserves a bump.

Yesiree ...

the road ahead has lumps, bumps and potholes, no question. I am confident to get through, over and around them w/help from people like you and so many others here at the DP who I have learned so much from and know I will continue to learn from. Thanks to all!

Some of us older (but young at heart)

people have been fully awake and fighting this stuff since the 60s.

So you know exactly what I mean.

I've seen you shine plenty of light around here. There's no doubt we're in very unique times and all our newly awakened friends need us now as badly as us middle aged (but young at heart) needed folks like you for the last 20 years. When I was about 17, they had me on the shapeshifters hook-line-and-sinker, an old militiaman pulled me back to earth. I never forget that.

"newly awakened friends"

Equals. It does not matter how long you "got it" what matters is if you hold it in THIS moment. When we become convinced of our expertise, we are most vulnerable to being deceived. Someone who believes in shapeshifters right here, right now, still may have a great truth they could reveal to you. Would you hear it, or would you deny their truth because from your lofty view, you spotted the lie they are deceived by?
Blind spots are very tricky. It is a compassionate, loving thing to wish to shine light into another person's blind spot, but unless they WANT enlightened, you are going to cause them to close their lids even more tightly. And, of course, by their very nature we do not see our own blind spots.
Peace!

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

Why do you assume I hold a lofty view?

I don't dismiss anything. I check it out but I don't dismiss it. I follow paths that people randomly bring up at the grocery store with the same vigor as something G Edward Griffin says. I refer to the newly awakened because we had the luxury of time and a LACK of information. Now people are quicly running out of time and are swimming in information. I feel a responsibility to help people sift through the information and get to the truth and to alert them if something needs more study. In 1992, when Ruby Ridge was going on, there was a smaller but still significant awakening. We didn't stay vigilant and we lost a lot of good people to the lull of quiet ignorance. In 2001, we lost even more people to the upswing in misplaced patriotism. This time has to be different. So please do do not think I am saying "my info is better than someone else's" that is NOT the case. I want us all to have GREAT info. I want us all to learn to seek and analyze that info too.

You had a FANTASTIC post earlier with original source data, a strong working theory and solid material to back up your claim. I had never even thought about that, you taught me something. Keep it coming!! I didn't stick with this journey so long because I don't like new information.

If everyone stays on their toes, we have a real chance at making a real difference. Things are likely to get extra-confusing soon. It's up to folks like you to help others get and stay razor-sharp. I know you're up to it, I've kept an eye on your posts for a long time. You don't get that ROCR approval unless I know you know your stuff and can effectively communicate it.

Did not mean to offend

or even to single you out. It is our natural tendency, when we have an area we have studied, we take a certain amount of pride in our knowledge and feel a certain level of confidence in our accuracy.

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

No offense taken at all. It was a perfect opportunity to clarify

Maybe you can help me congeal a thought. I realized the other day that many of the same people who call us "kooks" for paying such close attention to the news and world affairs, even though (in their mind) there's nothing we can do to effect the outcome, are the same who glue themselves to a sofa during football season and need to pause a movie to get the score of a game. They pay really close attention, to the point of needing real-time information and screaming at the television, to a game that they have ABSOLUTELY no control over. But that's not kooky? Anyway, Its just a little thought, but I think it may help some folks wake up, if it can be boiled-down into a succinct argument.

I see many things that look like hypnosis to me

This behavior is typical. There is a deliberate attempt to keep the public overstimulated. It causes anxiety, and eventually a desperate need to "relax" and we have been trained like Pavlov's dogs to "relax" in front of the TV... where the hypnosis begins in earnest. Flicker-rate brainwave entrainment is very real, and very effective. Svali talks about being taught to walk into a room of slobbering TV zombies and plant post-hypnotic suggestions. She may be a phony (I actually think she is legit - your thoughts?) but the concept is absolutely valid. The irony is the TV makes the overload WORSE, and leaves these poor should DESPERATELY running back to the machine that is overloading them the most.
Want to know what OUGHT to make grown men quake in their boots? Consider this - how much do you REALLY think the government wants the masses to have a clearer picture? I don't know what they have up their sleeve, but I know what they have now and know how soundly they put the sleeple under regarding 9-11...
I am putting a seminar together, I don't know if I have time or anyone who wants or needs the information, but I am going to try. We are to be sorely tried, I am pretty sure. I would love to be wrong, but we are learning to be happy and fey... happy and gay got twisted anyway!
Anyway, my kids have teased for years that we were about to be invaded by zombies... I thought they were kooky, too. ;)

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

I totally think that TV is hypnotic. Beta-waves and the like

Partly why the whole world going digital kinda makes me wonder about that ole sleeve too.

I think football goes beyond TV though, it's like a lifestyle, a definition of who you are. Yesterday for example, probably 85% of the people I saw out and about were wearing Ravens shirts because I guess there was a game?? They talk about it at work, spend real time putting together fantasy rosters and carefully administrate a whole little record-keeping system. These folks are not relaxed. They are more hyped up than Alex Jones would be if he interviewed Sean Hannity. I think they have an inner-spark that never quite got lit all the way and football season gives them something to follow, research, and learn (they become quite the experts). As I said, it's still in the rolling around my head aimlessly stage.

I think this deserves your researching

All major league sports turn me off.
I see a combination the herd mentality and latent homosexuality behind obsession with sports. We all have the need to belong to a group for reinforcement, but why? Because we don't understand that each of us is 'divine'. We don't believe in ourselves. Or should I say 'they' don't, it's the reason 'they' need reinforcement from the herd.
My heart is telling me that if you look into the timeline of when major league sports rose in popularity, that it was a result of the depression, when 'we' were ripe for escapism.
However, there are far more pressing concerns facing us and I don't want to cause you to lose focus.

and then, when reality is brought in, like the economy..

they are so overwhelmed they take the head in the sand approach.

I have never in my life seen

so many people "get it" in such a short period of time.We can thank Ron Paul for that.Now if we can keep this thing going foreward,we have a chance.

Thanks to Ron Paul and our thirst for the Truth

Back when I was in my late teens or early twenties, I can remember this pulling or desire toward finding out how things around us, in our world and in our universe works. That desire has grown with my age, it has taught me to search for the knowledge in which our answers are derived. Now that I’m much older, I have learned to question all of the answers because the majority of things around us are not what they seem to be… I have only known of Ron Paul for a little over a year now and interested in politics for the same amount of time. I have always known that our government was somewhat corrupt, as I believe most Americans do ( even the ones that are still asleep ). I would just like to say thanks to Mr. Ron Paul for opening my eyes to how deep the corruption really goes and for the insight of our future if we do not change our path. It has allowed me to somewhat prepare myself and my family for our hard times ahead, not that anyone could be prepared for such an event…It gives me a sick feeling deep in my soul... Ron Paul you are truly a patriot in a time when the world seems hell bent on destroying itself…

Thank you Sir for showing us the Truth…
And thank everyone at DP and everywhere for sharing that truth…
