Ed Jewett: On the Nature of Life in These Disunited States

Cultural Intelligence

On the nature and quality of life in these disunited states

“In the technotronic society the trend would seem to be
towards the aggregation of the individual support of millions of  uncoordinated citizens, easily within the reach of magnetic and attractive personalities effectively exploiting the latest  communication techniques to manipulate emotions and control  reason.”
Zbigniew Brzezinski

When I was a young boy, at the dinner table and beyond, I was told to shut
up and not speak until spoken to. Today, we are told to shut up, get in line,
and not believe any of that nonsense we might read from those crazy
people. In between, I discovered (gradually, and painfully) that I’d been
purposefully lied to and misled for decades. What are we to believe?
What sources can we consider to be credible?

Someone suggested in the comments section at Naked Capitalism
that a book by the late, great Michael Crichton called “Airframe”
would help explain the importance of the wing.

I don’t fly ( I can’t afford to, and refuse to submit myself to the TSA)
so the wing has little value to me, but I do read voraciously, and
frequently buy books at the bottom of the used books heap from
companies that deliver quality with reasonable speed at prices
acceptable to someone living on Social Security. Crichton is most
instructive about the nature and power of the press, especially TV,
and he shows you how the sausage is made. “He was
continually studying and exploring one subject or another, not only
for extensive research for his books but also for his insatiable love
of learning. This hunger for knowledge and his constant desire to
share it with readers made him a natural-born teacher. However, it
is also the human angle. The unique perspective and genuine
interest in humanity that Michael Crichton brings to his writings
makes his readers curious learners themselves.” [ http://

If we could craft an anthropological reconstruction of Crichton’s
mind (“he obtained his bachelor’s degree in biological anthropology
summa cum laude ) to the extent to which he has not already done
so, we could perhaps develop a small cadre of people who
could teach the rest of us how to do top-drawer investigative
journalism. (I could have gratuitously suggested cloning.)

But I digressed…

Robert Steele has already suggested a TruthChannel “that must combine
text messages, emails, posts, videos, and shared documents and must
not be subject to censorship, manipulation or digital assassination” and
has begun to aggregate critical insights on SCADs like 9/11 and Sandy
Hook. “State Crimes Against Democracy (SCADs) are actions undertaken
in direct violation of sworn oaths of office to circumvent, exploit, or
otherwise undermine or subvert laws and institutions to advance personal
or political gain and/or to silence or otherwise suppress public
foreknowledge and awareness.”

The focus of the recent suppression of information and opinion appears
to have been centered on Sandy Hook; we’ve already been through the
same thing with 9/11, and the numerous assassinations before that.
Recently this strategy has claimed a web site that provided a string of live
weather radar feeds: https://liveweatherfeeds.wordpress.com. Politically,
there are some severely ominous storm clouds on the near-horizon.
Warnings of upcoming economic collapse and a serious Grade A “falseflag”
incident are widespread. Everyone fears the future, though it can be
argued that this is merely some form of Tavistockian cage-rattling. But
astute observers can and have also detected a significant shift in the
systems and policies pertaining to information flow in our economy and
our culture, the transfer of data relative to finance and the economy, Wall
Street trading and banking, including the presence of a surveillance
mechanism used by the Federal Reserve, that private and closed world
that controls the tiller of our financial system; there are significant issues
regarding the regulation of the nation’s pharmaceutical industry, and of
agriculture and foods (see this story on cancer-causing Monsanto
ingredients showing up in the cereal we feed our kids:). The average
consumer is bombarded and bamboozled by information on health care
and wellness with differing and changing reports about the value of meats,
butter, and coffee in our diets. There have also been systematic attacks on
the civil rights enumerated in the Constitution. And the social media are all
quivering about the fact that the President of the United States has said
that the news media are the enemies of the people.

The American people can be described as being illiterate when it comes to
politics, geography, the Constitution, and more. See, for example, this
Salon.com article from several years ago on American political ignorance.
Most people don’t vote. The strength of interest and awareness on the
part of most citizens about history is poor, a function of both our education
systems and our media systems.

It can be said that most of us are poorly informed about the degree and
depth of collaboration between the US intelligence systems and the Nazi
brain trust (including the role played by Henry Kissinger), the true story of
Timothy McVeigh and the Murrah Building bombing, or the vagaries of
social engineering (“a discipline in social science that refers to efforts to
influence particular attitudes and social behaviors on a large scale,
whether by governments, media or private groups in order to produce
desired characteristics in a target population …. Social engineers use the
scientific method to analyze and understand social systems in order to
design the appropriate methods to achieve the desired results in the
human subjects.” Nor are we likely to know much about the Israeli project
called Talpiot, or social engineering as it pertains to cyber-security.
Social engineering, in the context of information security, refers to
psychological manipulation of people into performing actions or
divulging confidential information. A type of confidence trick for the
purpose of information gathering, fraud, or system access, it differs
from a traditional “con” in that it is often one of many steps in a
more complex fraud scheme.…[1] Here’s your introductory primer.
The more advanced material has to to with the degree and depth to which
the behavioral sciences and data sciences are becoming woven into our
social media and our increasingly weaponized cyber-world:
“[T]he development of behavioral technologies intended for military-grade
persuasion in cyber-operations is rooted in a specific perspective on
human beings, one that is at odds with the way they should be viewed in
democratic societies…. If these technologies are becoming the core of
America’s military and intelligence cyber-operations, it looks as though we
will have to work harder to keep these trends from affecting the everyday
life of our democratic society.”

While the topics of ritual abuse, mind control and pedophilia are becoming
more frequently discussed, in great part because of the efforts of Robert
Steele and others here at PhiBetaIota.net and Joachim Hagopian, whose
work is available in serialized chapter format on Kindle at Amazon for 99
cents per chapter , PhiBetaIota.net and his own blog, the background
histories of secret societies remain largely unexplored, as does the role of
Wall Street law firms in the creation and funding of both Nazism and
Bolshevism, as well as the degree to which eugenics is a mainstream
theory in US history. Nor has there been extensive discussion about the
impact of the transhumanist movement on “US popular culture, politics,
science, and even in big business”, nor the disturbing and rapid trends in
genetic manipulation.
Because of the failure of our educational systems and our media, there is a
burgeoning problem with our cultural social well-being and mental health.
Stress levels are elevated; suicide is on the rise. Both are aided and
abetted by an opioid crisis which can be lain at the feet of BigPharma and
the CIA/military role in trans-shipping heroin. Our society is slowly being
poisoned to death. We are being manipulated into a form of interpersonal
apartheid in which dialogue is suppressed, and community interaction is
becoming non-existent. We are confused, misled. And the NDAA makes it
legal for the CIA and the Pentagon to bathe us in propaganda and

Donald Trump is right; the media are not contributing to our health,
happiness, and prosperity.

“The game has nothing to do with accuracy, or the facts, or the
reality. It’s just a circus…. Now day-to-day life is false, and the
media image is true.”
Amos, pages 422-423, “Airframe”
