Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” – Synopsis Of An Illuminati Manifesto

with 2 comments

March 8, 2011: Vigilant Citizen Editors / Vigilant Citizen.com – March 7, 2011

Link below to read this entire article after watching the video… - SJH

Lady Gaga’s single “Born This Way” introduces the viewers to the birth of a “new race” and to a new world, using intricate imagery and a precise narrative. It is a psychedelic trip filled with occult and archetypal symbols, telling the story of a cosmic birth and new ideals. However, behind its outward message of acceptance, a more sinister message lies embedded in the symbolism of the video. We will look at the underlying meaning of “Born This Way” and analyze the meaning of the occult symbolism in the video.

Lady Gaga is back, y’all.  And she’s got horns on her forehead. And she’s in space. And she’s making 90′s dance music. And my head just exploded. But seriously, Born this Way seems to provoke in people two opposite reactions, depending on their knowledge of occult symbolism. It is either “What the heck just happened here?” or “This is really blatant”. 

The reason is simple. The video contains new strange elements that might confuse viewers but it also contains symbolism that is extremely ancient. Although the video is set in a futuristic, intergalactic world, it deals with the most primal concept of humanity: motherhood. It plays on human’s archetypal fascination and/or repulsion towards the act of giving birth.

Although the lyrics of Born This Way are about unconditional acceptance, with a special focus on homosexuality, the video’s scope goes way beyond the subject of sexual orientation. It narrates the birth of a new race within humanity. Laurieann Gibson, the creative director of the video describes this concept:

“At first, when I thought about birthing a new race and adding the prosthetics, I thought that maybe they should have a certain way they should walk or maybe they move a certain way, but then I realized it is actually a race within our race; it’s a mindset.”- Source

Gaga is not giving birth to a human but to a “new race” within humanity. The symbolism of the video makes it clear that this birth is not natural, but artificially provoked. A twisted immaculate conception. As is the case for most Lady Gaga videos, the theme of mind control is important in the video. It is the process through which the metamorphosis will take place. In Monarch programming terms, we are witnessing the birth of a new persona within the “core personality” of humanity. The birth is happening within the minds of people and is visually represented by creepy facial horns.

(If you have not read previous articles on this site, mind control programming is the process through which a handler causes within a subject the “birth” of a new persona that can be programmed at will, through trauma and abuse. It is an actual process used by the CIA – MK-Ultra – and symbolism pertaining to this practice is widely present  in popular culture. In the context of the video, the programming does not happen on a single person, but on a mass scale – a new race).

Furthermore, the esoteric imagery in the video describes a world change that is occurring as an alchemical process: The creation of magic through the unification of opposing forces portrayed through the use of archetypal symbols and messages. Yup, we’re still talking about a Lady Gaga video… [read more below]

Don’t Worry, Be Happy: Unemployment Is Down, The Stock Market Is Up, And The Economy Is Going To Be Just Fine In The Great USA

leave a comment »

March 5, 2011: The American Dream Editors / The American Dream - March 5, 2011

Haven’t you heard?  The coming economic collapse has officially been canceled. 

The U.S. economy is in full recovery mode.  It has just been announced that the U.S. unemployment rate fell to 8.9% in February.  That was the third monthly decline in a row.  192,000 new jobs were created in the U.S. during February.  That was the fifth month in a row in which the U.S. economy has gained jobs.  Corporate profits are way up. 

For the most recent month that numbers are available, sales of GM vehicles were up 49%, sales of Chrysler vehicles were up 13%, and sales of Ford vehicles were up 10%.  Can’t you see?  The great American economic machine has roared back to life.  The stock market is way up this year.  The recession is over.  Our financial system is more stable than ever.  Pretty soon all Americans that want jobs are going to be able to get jobs and all of our government debts are going to be paid off.  The greatest days for the U.S. economy are just around the corner.  So don’t worry, be happy.

Don’t worry, be happy – the U.S. unemployment rate is falling and it will continue to fall.  Don’t be concerned that according to Gallup, the U.S. unemployment rate actually rose to 10.3% at the end of February.  Everyone knows that U.S. government numbers are far more accurate than the numbers that Gallup puts out.  Just don’t pay any attention to the “doom and gloomers” and just keep on watching American Idol.  Very soon there will be plenty of jobs for everyone.

Don’t worry, be happy – globalism is doing wonderful things for the U.S. economy.  Just look at all the incredibly cheap products from foreign nations such as China that are available in our stores.  Do you think that all of this stuff would be so cheap if we didn’t have free trade?  We may have a massive “trade imbalance” right now, but this is just temporary as we transition over to a one world economy.  The job losses may look bad right now, but once our wage levels go down low enough we will be able to export more stuff to the rest of the world.  So don’t be alarmed when the “protectionists” tell you that between December 2000 and December 2010, 38 percent of the manufacturing jobs in Ohio were lost, 42 percent of the manufacturing jobs in North Carolina were lost and 48 percent of the manufacturing jobs in Michigan were lost.  Those workers just need to get more “education” so that they can be competitive in today’s global economy.  And please don’t listen to people like Alan Blinder, an economist at Princeton, who is projecting that offshoring will ulti­mately affect up to 40 million American jobs.  The truth is that there are many jobs that simply cannot be outsourced.  For example, workers over in China and India will never be able to flip the burgers that need flipping here in the United States and they will never be able to welcome people to your local Wal-Marts.

Don’t worry, be happy – the fact that the number of Americans on food stamps has set another new all-time high (44 million) is just an indication that more Americans are learning how to use government services.  At some point this number will start to go down as the U.S. economy roars back to life.

Don’t worry, be happy – the fact that new home sales in the United States have been setting record lows just means that the only direction they have to go is up.  As the employment situation continues to brighten, it is inevitable that the housing industry in the U.S. will surge to greater heights than ever before.

Don’t worry, be happy – the fact that so many Americans are going back to work means that lots of additional tax money will soon be pouring into the coffers of state and local governments.  In Idaho, Boise County has just declared bankruptcy, but that is just an isolated incident.  We shouldn’t be seeing too many more local governments default on their debts.

Don’t worry, be happy – the economic improvement that we are seeing right now will soon mean that the austerity measures being implemented across the United States will soon come to an end.  Yes, times have been tough in many communities lately.  The following is an excerpt from a recent New York Times article that describes the brutal austerity that has been implemented in Vallejo, California…

Vallejo is still in bankruptcy. The police force has shrunk from 153 officers to 92. Calls for any but the most serious crimes go unanswered. Residents who complain about prostitutes or vandals are told to fill out a form. Three of the city’s firehouses were closed. Last summer, a fire ravaged a house in one of the city’s better neighborhoods; one of the firetrucks came from another town, 15 miles away. Is this America’s future?”

Sadly, that article in the New York Times was far too negative.  The truth is that things are starting to turn around.  Soon our cities and towns will be more prosperous than ever and all of this “austerity” will just be a bad memory.  It is only a matter of time.

Don’t worry, be happy – Barack Obama has announced a great plan for reducing the federal budget deficit.  As the U.S. economy grows at a 5 or 6 percent pace for the rest of the decade the budget deficit is going to just keep on shrinking.  Thanks to Obama, our budget deficit will be reduced to 607 billion dollars by 2015.  Obama’s policies are going to lead to much greater financial strength for the U.S. government.  Those that are warning that the U.S. government cannot handle this much debt simply do not understand history.  As a percentage of GDP, our debt really isn’t that bad.  When analyst Mary Meeker recently told BusinessWeek that the U.S. government has a “net worth of a negative $44 trillion” she was just exaggerating the situation.  The truth is that the U.S. government is on really solid ground financially.

Don’t worry, be happy – the price of oil cannot possibly stay this high.  Yes, U.S. crude rose to $104 a barrel today, but that is just because of the crisis in Libya.  The American people are just going to have to deal with higher gas prices for a few weeks.  ABC News is reporting that regular unleaded is selling for $5.29 a gallon at one gas station in Orlando, Florida.  But of course that won’t last for too long.  Things will get back to normal soon.

Surely Barack Obama and his crack team of national security experts are on the verge of solving the crisis in Libya even as we speak.  With incredibly competent diplomatic professionals such as Hillary Clinton on the job, it is only a matter of time until the chaos in the Middle East comes to an end.

The peace and stability that the Obama administration is going to bring to the Middle East is going to drive oil prices back down.  So please don’t worry – you will probably be paying 2 dollars for a gallon of gasoline by Christmas.  The price of oil is not going to set a new record high and it is not going to cause another financial panic like we witnessed back in 2008.

Everything is going to be okay.  Please do not listen to any of the “doom and gloomers”, the “gold bugs”, the “protectionists”, the “armchair economists” or the “conspiracy theorists”.  Do you think that they know more than the highly educated experts in the Obama administration, the highly educated experts running the Federal Reserve or the highly educated experts on the mainstream media?

Yes, we have had some “glitches” in the economy recently, but very competent people are very busy fixing all of those problems.  So instead of being obsessed with our “economic problems”, you should just relax and have some fun.  Baseball season is getting ready to start and all month fantasy baseball leagues are going to be forming.  Now is a great time to join one.  A new season of Dancing With The Stars is going to begin shortly, and this cast looks like the best one yet.  Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler have been wonderful additions to American Idol this season.  Did you see the dramatic unveiling of the “final 13″ on Idol the other night?  It was great television.  A new Matt Damon has just come out and Justin Bieber just got a new haircut.  Life in America is good.

Many of you already have to work two or three jobs just to pay the bills.  Why spend your precious free time reading websites like The American Dream which will just get you all riled up about the state of the economy for no reason whatsoever?

There is nothing to worry about. Everything is under control. Don’t worry, just be happy…

Woody Guthrie: 1913 Massacre – True Story Of Labor Vs The Corp

leave a comment »

February 28, 2011: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – February 28, 2011

This piece was cobbled together by TTR… - SJH

The Italian Hall Disaster (sometimes referred to as the 1913 Massacre) is a tragedy that occurred on December 24, 1913 in Calumet, Michigan.

Seventy-three men, women, and children, mostly striking mine workers and their families, were crushed to death in a stampede when someone falsely yelled “fire” at a crowded Christmas party.

Background

The Calumet and Hecla Mining Company (“C&H”) was formed from the consolidation of the Calumet and Hecla mining companies in 1871. C&H was the single largest copper mining company in Michigan’s copper country, which includes Copper Island. One of the longest strikes in the copper country took place in 1913, and included all the C&H mines.

The Western Federation of Miners first established a local in the area in 1908 but it wasn’t until 1913 that the WFM had a large enough membership to effectively strike. At the time, there were perhaps 15,000 men working in the mines and the WFM claimed 9,000 of them as members. The membership voted in favor of demanding union recognition from management, and asking “for a conference with the employers to adjust wages, hours, and working conditions in the copper district of Michigan.”

The membership also voted to “declare a strike” if management refused to “grant a conference or concessions.” After the vote was held, the WFM sent letters to the mines demanding the conference; the mine managers refused the request and the strike was called on July 23, 1913. The strike would not end until April, 1914; the miners and the mines were still at a standoff at Christmas, 1913, in a strike that was then five months old.

The Disaster

On Christmas Eve many of the striking miners and their families had gathered for a Christmas party sponsored by the Ladies Auxiliary of the Western Federation of Miners.[4] It is estimated that there were over five hundred people at the party, which was held on the second floor of Calumet’s Italian Hall. A steep stairway was the only way to the second floor, although there was a poorly-marked fire escape on one side of the building and ladders down the back of the building which could only be reached by climbing through the windows.

The tragedy began when someone yelled “Fire!”; there was none. However, people panicked and rushed for the stairs. In the ensuing melee, seventy-three people (including fifty-nine children) were killed. To date there has been much debate about who cried “fire” and why. The most common theory is that “fire” was called out by an anti-union ally of mine management in order to disrupt the party…

Citizens Of Europe Rage Against The Machine As Americans Belch!

with 2 comments

November 28, 2010: Eric Blair / Activist Post – November 28, 2010

Austerity measures drive 100,000 protesters to the streets of Ireland, and another 100,000 in Italy as Europeans continue to rage against the international banking machine…

The international bankster regime seeking to colonize Western nations through debt is now meeting resistance from Greece, to France, to Ireland, to Italy, to Spain, to Portugal, and to the UK.

These new protests in Ireland and Italy follow a crippling 2-week strike in France where citizens took over fuel refineries and other vital infrastructure, more strikes in Greece which took over the Acropolis, and a massive student protest in the UK that caused physical damage to government buildings. All of these protests were sparked by governments reducing benefits or increasing fees and taxes on a population that had little to do with the private gambling of banks.

These European protests are intensifying as the international bankers move to collect their “pound of flesh” through austerity and sale of public assets.  As Europeans are becoming acutely aware of the dubious plan to loot them and the anger at their corrupt elected officials for bowing to banks has reached a boiling point.  In all cases the governments are enforcing austerity measures on the people after the private banks over-leveraged themselves to the breaking point, threatening to bring down entire nations.

For years the bankers churned out easy credit to these nations while they invested public and private funds into worthless credit default swaps and derivatives. As if orchestrated to perfection, they pulled the plug on those toxic assets, essentially bankrupting the more fragile developed countries, followed by calling their debts due.  Now they’re demanding that European governments be forced into IMF bailouts that impose drastic austerity measures on the populace.

By forcing tax increases and reducing benefits for the citizens of sovereign nations, the IMF is essentially rewriting their laws.  Well, it appears that the citizens of Europe have had enough.  The massive protests, strikes, and riots that have swept through the streets of many European countries have resulted in growing calls to reject the bailout money used to prop up failed banks and corrupt governments.

The protesters are getting support from someone who is experiencing the outcome of resisting public bailouts of private banking debts.  The President of Iceland recently remarked that they’re in much better shape than Ireland because they let the private banks fail and their currency naturally devalued, allowing them to regain some competitiveness relative to their neighbors:

“The difference is that in Iceland we allowed the banks to fail,” Grimsson said in an interview with Bloomberg Television’s Mark Barton today. “These were private banks and we didn’t pump money into them in order to keep them going; the state did not shoulder the responsibility of the failed private banks.”

UK’s Libertarian politician, Nigel Farage, once viewed as a fringe player, is now getting international recognition for forewarning his European comrades about the troubles in the system.  He’s quickly becoming a hero to the banker resistance as his credibility reaches new heights for being proved right — much like his U.S. counterpart Congressman Ron Paul. His rants in the European Parliament are going viral on YouTube as the people are waking up to their servitude to banks and a lack of true democracy and sovereignty.

Nigel Farage speaks with such confidence against the EU, as he should, given that a recent mainstream media poll showed 99% of UK citizens want out of the Euro.  The battle against the banking cartel is clearly happening with Europe as the spearhead.  As Europeans continue to fight back against corrupt international banksters, lazy Americans continue to live with a much lower standard of living and do nothing to challenge the system.

The rage in Europe and quiet streets in America is causing the euro to fall against the dollar.  The dollar was all but declared dead in the lead-up to the Fed’s QE2, but now the eurozone debt crisis has taken center stage.  The European Council is set to meet again this December to amend the Lisbon Treaty to essentially legalize more bailouts.  Some insiders are calling it an impossible mission to get all European countries to agree on fair amendments.  The outcome of these December meetings will assuredly be pivotal in determining whether the euro “experiment” will survive.

If it crumbles, so then does the structure for a global currency.  Indeed, the front lines in the battle to conquer plans for a global currency and the end of sovereign nation states is being waged by the angry citizens of Europe.  Bravo comrades, keep up the fight!

Nigel Farage: Just Who The Hell Do You Think You Are?!

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: Ron Paul is the only American “counterpart” that can even remotely come close to MEP Nigel Farage’s patriotism and courage. The vast majority of people in our country are nothing but pathetic fools dragging America into the depths of war, debt, and generations of death and despair! - SJH

TTRs “Just Because!” Cream Performed A Falstaff Beer Commercial

leave a comment »

November 27, 2010: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – November 27, 2010

Falstaff beer was one of, if not the first beers I ever tried back in the Sixties while raiding my parents refrigerator listening to Cream…

Cream were a 1960s British blues-rock band and first supergroup consisting of bassist/vocalist Jack Bruce (left), guitarist/vocalist Eric Clapton (right), and their drummer Ginger Baker (center).

Their sound was characterised by a hybrid of blues, hard rock and psychedelic rock, combining Eric Clapton’s blues guitar playing with the voice and basslines of Jack Bruce and the jazz-influenced drumming of Baker. Wheels of Fire was the world’s first platinum-selling double album.

Cream is widely regarded as being the world’s first notable and functioning supergroup. In over two years, they sold over 35 million albums.

Cream’s music included songs based on traditional blues such as “Crossroads” and “Spoonful“, and modern blues such as “Born Under a Bad Sign“, as well as more eccentric songs such as “Strange Brew”, “Tales of Brave Ulysses” and “Toad”. Cream’s biggest hits were “I Feel Free” (UK, #11), “Sunshine of Your Love” (US, #5), “White Room” (US, #6), “Crossroads” (US, #28), and “Badge” (UK, #18).

Cream made a significant impact upon the popular music of the time, and along with Jimi Hendrix popularised the use of the wah-wah pedal. They provided a heavy yet technically proficient musical theme that foreshadowed and influenced the emergence of British bands such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, and The Jeff Beck Group in the late 1960s. The band’s live performances influenced progressive rock acts such as Rush, jam bands such as The Allman Brothers Band, Grateful Dead, Phish and heavy metal bands such as Black Sabbath.

Cream was ranked #16 on VH1‘s 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock and Rolling Stone named them the sixty-sixth greatest artists of all time.
