Movies and television programming require a suspension of judgment to be enjoyed - we immerse and lose ourselves in the unfolding story.

Because our habits so shape us, is this process not *training* the mind to suspend judgment and independent thinking, and embrace stagecraft?
One of the most disturbing trends I've noticed accelerating over recent years is a *profound* decrease in our ability to discern real from fake, or truthful from deceptive.. I'm not referring to the words being said, but rather intonation, body language, 'micro-expressions'...
and how could one hope to master this type of discernment, when the majority of the sensory input they're taking in involves actors and actresses, writers and directors.. whose very role is to convincingly mimic genuineness and sincerity, and thus blur that line?
This may seem like a trivial thing, it's absolutely not.. and not merely because we have sickly storytellers shaping the minds of children and adults alike, but because having the false/contrived make up such an overwhelming % of our 'intake' has very real ramifications in itself

Obsession with 'racism' represents the fruits of a new quasi-religion, developed by/for the Godless.

It's tenets allow only positive things to be said about certain races, only negative things to be said of another, and the end goal is total inversion of the power structure.
(1)
It's not just the race they want dead and gone forever, but it's history, culture, belief structures - it's very *nature*.

This is happening across all western nations, and might be thought of as 'colonialism' of int'l finance, with minority groups used as foot soldiers.
(2)
The difficulty is that a significant percentage of this indoctrinated army are not 'evil', but rather being taken advantage of, in the manner of useful idiots.. like troops fighting for a corrupt and deceitful general, whose true intentions they don't understand.

When the purchased-press covers any ‘conspiracy theory’, almost without exception it’s a mischaracterization of an exaggeration of a mischaracterized exaggeration.. leading to an end-product headline so absurd that the public becomes ashamed to be associated with it.

‘the most powerful banking families now have such unchecked power and control that even much of the military-industrial complex, including new space-based weaponry, is directly or indirectly under their sway,’

becomes

‘Jewish space lasers!!’

.. opening the door to mockery

‘The owners and operators of this business seem to have unique/extensive ties to both child predators and traffickers, and an undeniable overlap with their ‘culture’, demanding investigation’

became

‘Hillary Clinton eats and sells children from a basement in a pizza shop’

Jan Ott, the capable man behind the upcoming translation of the Oera Linda book, is one of those impressive people that so often go ‘unsung’ due to a quiet modesty..

He’s been handling all things OLB practically on his own, in preparing the book for publication, and
(1)
ensuring relevant and reliable research material is available online.

I often receive outreach from skilled individuals looking for ways to help, in the broadest sense - this would be a great opportunity to do so, in a meaningful way:

Web design, layout, content display

and organization isn’t his specialty, and because he has so much else on his plate, I thought I’d put the word out - in hopes that someone with the skill set and willingness to help might reach out to him.
I’d personally appreciate it.

He can be reached at ott@oeralinda.nl

As our world crumbles, and a handful of parasitic jackals (and their errand-boys and useful idiots) set the world on fire in attempt to retain undeserved power, life can become profoundly *draining*.

For what it’s worth - remember that *you* are in control of your inputs.
(1)
Remember that, at any time, you can simply shut out these informational inputs designed to grind the human spirit to dust.

Am I suggesting that not paying any attention to the world is the ideal?
Absolutely not. As with so much else, a balance seems best:

Take in enough

to have some firm understanding of what’s going on, while making certain you don’t lose yourself in hundreds of redundant examples of the darkness we’re facing. There’s nothing to be gained from swimming in infuriating and demoralizing material -

The ascendancy of men like Saul Alinsky as foundational political philosophers marked the beginning of the end of all hopes of truthfulness or decency in politics because his particular brand of shrewd intelligence chose to frame all politics as a by-any-means-necessary

Devoid of any strong love for nation, or culture, or a belief in God - or any fundamental reason or desire to *better* the world - his ‘rules for radicals’ playbook so heavily

For anyone that hasn't followed the election happenings closely, a summary:

Biden starts out with an early lead across the board, due to (as the networks mention over and over again) the counting of the mail-in votes early.

After roughly half of the non mail-in votes are
(1)
tallied in most key states, Biden's lead has evaporated completely, and many states flip to Trump.

It's clear who's going to win. I call it, many others call it, betting markets call it (Trump becomes an 8 to 1 favorite, from his starting point as a 3 to 1 underdog).
(2)
Things then begin to get very strange.
Vote counting essentially stops in most key states, and CNN and others begin to suddenly claim the mail-in vote WASN'T actually tallied yet, but rather remains to be counted.

From this point forward, nearly every vote tallied in
