Freedom fighter: A fighter for freedom, especially a person who battles against established forces of tyranny and dictatorship. (Dictionary.com)
Resistance: Organized covert opposition to an occupying or ruling power. (Dictionary.com)
The members of the Illuminati, the cabal or the powers that be (PTB) as they are sometimes called believe that they are the anointed ones destined to rule the planet. Their hands have been tightly wrapped around the controls on planet Earth for centuries. And historically incumbents don’t abandon their position of power at the first signs of resistance and go peacefully into the night. You could say that their determination to hold power is in direct proportion to the perceived value of vested interests they seek to protect.
The PTB have more than simply the power and assets conferred by their incumbency. They also possess an impressive array of weapons. Additionally, their skills in waging information warfare have been honed over centuries. Chief among these is their mastery of propaganda or more generally the art and science of perception management.1 Today, the PTB largely have the tools and propagandizing ability to cause the masses to perceive black as white and up as down,
The resistance movement on the other hand is fragmented, lacks a unified strategy and skills, and relies to a large degree on untrained volunteers. It also seriously underestimate both the deviousness and the strategic capabilities of its adversaries. In fact, when it comes to waging info warfare, it looks like a case of “no contest." This means there's a lot of work to do in equipping today's freedom fighter for battle. It can begin with something as basic as understanding the means whereby they are being manipulated and controlled.
The father of modern PR, Edward Bernays, described how the PTB control the masses in a modern democracy. The public mind is controlled by an invisible government that manipulates us at will by their string or "wire” pulling as Bernays put it.
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. ...In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons...who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”2
I was recently reminded just how empowering even a small amount of training or knowledge can be. My wife took her car to a dealership for an appointment to determine what trade in price difference she would have to pay on each of the two vehicles she test drove. It was a straightforward question. But she was handed off to a sales manager intent on turning her casual inquiry into an on-the-spot sale. While we were awaiting the sales manager, I reminded her that the steps in the sales process would lead to the use of the close. An example might be: Would you like to pick it up on Tuesday or Thursday? (This salesman actually employed this very close, the same one recommended in an old school sales course that I taught 20 years earlier.) Thus equipped, my wife deflected the sales manager's attempted close, and with the numbers in hand, left the dealership.
My point is that once you have a basic understanding of a process or a war strategy, you may be able to recognize and anticipate its coming. The strategies and tactics of the PTB are subtler and more sophisticated than those of a car salesman of course, thus the strategic importance of understanding the game is that much greater. With that in mind, I have outlined what I call Ten disciplines for freedom fighters. The first five are presented in Part A, and focus essentially on preparing the heart and mind for battle. The remaining five outlined in Part B, are action-oriented practices that build on the first five. Since every reader is at a different place, my advice to the experienced is the same as that of martial arts icon, Bruce Lee: Absorb what is useful, discard with is useless and add what is specifically your own.3
Ten disciplines for freedom fighter: Part A: 1-5
1. Know your adversary (mindset, morality, motives, modus operandi).
The PTB or the Illuminati don’t think or act like the rest of us. Most humans operate within some fairly well-defined ethical and moral boundaries. Normal humans struggle to understand why the PTB pursue an agenda of endless war, given its horrific nature and devastating outcomes. Normal human beings are unable to grasp the mindset of entities that engage in child trafficking for the purpose of serving and ensnaring politicians with a predilection for pedophilia.4 Normal human beings can’t understand how others are so unfeeling that they have imposed a false flag reign of terror in order to keep citizens compliant, confused and in a constant state of fear.5
There’s a reason why the crimes of the PTB continue uninterrupted long after they have been first reported. It’s not simply that they are carried out in the shadows, but that they are beyond the comprehension of most normal people. Some analysts have concluded that we aren’t dealing with normal human beings; those at the top of the world’s hierarchy are psychopaths. Others, including those that have escaped their ranks, often report that those at the very top identify themselves as the illuminated ones (thus Illuminati) and worship Lucifer.6 The Bible offers some insights into Lucifer’s predisposition.
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour.” (1Peter, 5:8, King James 2000 translation)
The modus operandi of the PTB is also more devious than the average citizen might imagine. It’s typically described within the resistance movement in terms of Hegelian dialect with its three essential elements: thesis, antithesis and synthesis.7 A more common variant is a sequential process that progresses from: problem to reaction, to solution.8 Here’s how the Empire’s magicians apply the process in the larger social-political scheme of things.
a) Problem: The PTB orchestrates a state-sponsored terror attack in a domestic or foreign setting. It may involve big explosions, shootings, fake blood and crisis actors (or real blood and people or a combination of the two).
b) Reaction: The public reacts in fear and confusion, demanding that the government do something to protect people from any such incidents in the future.
c) Solution: The PTB proceed with their original plan to ratchet up control over the populace by a) instituting new emergency measures, curtailing public freedoms, and increasing public surveillance, or b) intensifying foreign war efforts falsely described as aimed at defeating Islamic terrorists or some other threat du jour (See France, Belgium, US, UK, etc.).
Veteran freedom fighters are fully aware that the approach and methods of the PTB are dark, devious and outside the ethical boundaries and behavioural norms of the average person. They also remind us that if we remain so afraid of those who operate in the darkness that we do nothing, we are complicit in their crimes.
2. Learn the methods and tactics of information warfare.
Modern military forces combine carefully developed strategies and deployment of state of the art weaponry. Sound strategies and effective weapons are every bit as crucial to success in the information war and battle for truth in the 21st century. If we wish to expose and counter the enemy’s tactics effectively, we must learn what they are and how to neutralize them. Here is an introduction to some of the methods and tactics employed in warfare today.
Astroturfing: manufacturing “a political movement designed to give the appearance of grass roots activism.”9
Bait and switch: gaining public support by saying you stand for positions favoured by a constituency, then doing a pivot once you have won their support or gotten into office and supporting the opposite (Some would say this is the approach that was employed by Donald Trump).
Cointelpro: COINTELPRO was a series of covert, and at times illegal, projects conducted by the …Federal Bureau of Investigation aimed at surveying, infiltrating, discrediting and disrupting domestic political organizations.10
Note: These types of operations aren’t limited to the FBI.
Disinformation: a type of untrue communication that is purposely spread and represented as truth to elicit some response that serves the perpetrator’s purpose.11 H. Michael Sweeney’s The 25 Rules of Disinformation is a superb resource for those wanting further insights into the tactics used to stymie critics and defy logic.12
False flag: covert operations that are designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by entities, groups, or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them.13
Note: In recent years, we have witnessed an abundance of supposed terrorist attacks in the US and abroad. Most, according to former CIA agent, Robert Steele, were false flags or situations where the perpetrators were encouraged and enabled by the CIA. Dr. Richard Dolan offers an excellent introduction to false flags and the players that have made them a specialty.14
Operation Gladio: could also be put in the general category of false flag operations. It is described as: “… a top secret, Europe-wide more or less extra-governmental terrorist enterprise established after WW2. It was originally inspired by fear of communism, specifically of an invasion of Europe by the Red Army, and its members were trained to 'stay behind' enemy lines, where they to carry out their terrorist missions. Officially non-existent, these networks were hard for NATO/MI6/Deep state officials to control, and carried out bombings, kidnappings, and assassinations to such an extent that the network was publicly exposed in Italy in the 1980s.
Note: “It has retrospectively called Operation Gladio A after the project was adapted as "Gladio B", using radical Moslems as a substitute enemy image for communists.”15
Gas lighting: Gaslighting (someone) is a manipulative tactic that can be described in variations of three accusations or assertions: "That didn't happen," "You imagined it," and "Are you crazy?"16 Gas lighting has been a success if/when the questions his or her sanity.
Psyops (Psychological operations): are planned operations to convey selected information and indicators to audiences to influence their emotions, motives, objective reasoning, and ultimately the behaviour of organizations, groups and individuals. Used in all aspects of war, it is a weapon whose effectiveness is limited only by the ingenuity of the commander using it.17
Smearing: to stain or attempt to destroy the reputation or vilify.18
Note: This can be done by planting false documents or incriminating materials in someone’s possession or on their computer.
A basic knowledge of some of the historic covert CIA programs would also be helpful. By understanding the objectives and outcomes of these programs, you will be better able to make sense of current developments that are otherwise hard to explain. Some of the more publicized are: Operation Paperclip, Operation Mockingbird, and MK Ultra.19
3. Protect and renew your mind and spirit. Build spiritual reserves.
We are under daily assault. I recall hearing an individual who worked as a counselor with sex offenders, saying something to the effect that over time, the nature of his work just sucked the life out of him. After considering the nature of our enemy, its goals and its tactics, you will have a new appreciation of the draining effect that labouring in the truth movement can have on the human spirit.
It’s no accident that people are distressed. There’s a painful irony in those public service announcements encouraging members of the public to face their mental health problems and seek treatment. It lies in the fact that much of the distress that weighs on people these days is caused by the machinations of Big Brother, the sponsor of those same ads. Just how much government-induced conflict and war, how many lies, how many intrusions and how many false flag terror attacks is the average human able to endure?
My default skeptic says that Big Pharma and its friends aren’t troubled in the least by the spectre of declining public health. Widespread addiction to painkillers and antidepressants is good for business. The important thing we need to remember in all of this is that it’s the PTB that are insane, not us.
The goal of the PTB is complete control over the minds and bodies of the citizens of the Empire. The assault on minds and bodies is intensifying and the tactics becoming more devious and intrusive. It shouldn’t surprise you to learn that elements of the Deep State (think CIA) have been working on mind control methods and technologies for some time. The CIA’s Project MK Ultra was a research and development program aimed at developing chemical, biological and radiological capable of controlling human behaviour in clandestine operations.20
This week I read of two more troubling developments. I read that Facebook has been quietly working on technology to read people’s minds so they can ‘type directly from the brain.’21 And while the benefits are always framed in practical or humanitarian terms (e.g. like assisting the disabled), applications of such powerful technologies are seldom limited to that. I also read a report that “directed energy weapons” are being used to target humans and groups. These weapons are capable of directing radio waves or electromagnetic waves onto areas of a targeted individual’s brain. This can produce auditory and visual hallucinations or other artificially-induced experiences. The weapons lend themselves to mind control operations in psyops and strikes on targeted individuals, considered to be enemies of the state.22 While I can’t confirm the report, such forms of warfare aren’t beyond the imagination or the l boundaries of the PTB.
Given the nature and frequency of the assaults on our minds, bodies and spirits by the PTB, self-defense is more important that ever. Preserving your serenity is essential. This following piece of Biblical poetry, for example has taken on new meaning for me of late. The reference to the “darkest valley” seems particularly pertinent to our life in the Empire today.
The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.23
There are days that I know I will be digging into dark subjects like child trafficking or Luciferian sacrificial practices. On these occasions, it’s especially important for me to start my day with prayer. When I’m in the thick of such subjects, I make a point of playing uplifting music to help keep me from slipping into despair. Prolonged exposure to the dark workings of the Illuminati can weigh heavily on the spirit and employing such countermeasures can be health sustaining. I also recommend regular breaks, deep breathing, short walks outdoors, interaction with family or friends, and a change of subject matter from time to time.
There’s also a practical reason for safeguarding and monitoring our mental and spiritual health. Yes, there are times when we need to vent and rage against the darkness. And there are times to weep. On other occasions however, a clear mind and some detachment from the emotional dimension of our struggle is required. This is when strategic thinking, analysis and planning are required.
In summary, practicing some forms of spiritual and mental self-defense is necessary given that our struggle is both spiritual and political. Countermeasures like those described, can help ward off crippling attacks and develop the endurance of the freedom fighter.
4.0 Cultivate and practice discernment – this includes developing a powerful Nonsense-BS detector.
Your first line of defence against the daily barrage of propaganda is what I call default skepticism. Nothing Big Brother says today should go unfiltered. We’ve seen the movie many times before. A political party seeking election, for example, often conjures up a convenient belief that flat or even declining economies are “turning a corner” and “renewed growth” lies just ahead. I politely refer to this as "happy talk.” It’s the sunny, sweet rhetorical marmalade would be governments liberally spread over their campaign messaging. It could also be described as “Mary Poppins” economics, because a lot of sugar is often needed to get taxpayers to swallow the harsher economic medicine that may follow.
The politician who sets the benchmark for honesty and transparency is the legendary Dane, King Canute.24 As a version of the story goes, Canute was determined to shed the illusions his subjects had about his ability as King to alter reality. He demonstrated his limitations to his subjects by having his throne placed at the ocean’s edge and commanded the incoming tide to stop. It didn’t, thus demonstrating his point that secular power was nothing compared to the supreme power of God. I wonder where all the King Canutes have gone?
It’s also important to develop discernment regarding Big Brother’s “coded” speech, or what George Orwell called Newspeak. Today’s politicians have a fondness for playing identity politics. It expresses itself in language that smugly embeds “dog whistles” to special interest groups, les chou chou du jour. The politically unaware often miss the rhetorical winks and nods directed at favoured constituencies be it feminists, transgender lobbyists or particular ethnic or religious groups. It seems to be an integral technique in the modern political handbook. Governments manage the masses by playing off aggrieved minorities, protected by a shield of political correctness, against the majority. It's a variant of the old "divide and conquer" strategy.
A feature of this school of politics employs militarized speech or “word bombs” to suppress criticism or debate. Such terms typically have a stigmatizing “ist” or ‘phobia” suffix attached to them and are designed to silence critics. Failing that, these rhetorical hand grenades can unleash an on-line lynch mob upon the bewildered target who dared to offer honest criticism or an alternative view point.
“Islamophobia,” is a current example of one such control word. Its nebulous nature means it can be readily used to conflate honest critique and discussion regarding Islam with socially abhorrent “isms.” Andrew Cummins describes, “Islamophobia as, “a term created by fascists, and used by cowards to control morons.” Salman Rushdie described the term as: …an addition to the vocabulary of Humpty Dumpty Newspeak. It took the language of analysis, reason and dispute, and stood it on its head.”
Activist, writer and politician, Ayaan Hirsi Ali exposes the faulty logic underlying adoption of such terms:
“It’s nonsense to claim that a person hates or is prejudiced toward a set of ideas. This is a category mistake since, by definition, we do not owe competing ‘ideas’ any sense of fair play or equity. By logical necessity we are forced to choose one over the other, and this is as true of our metaphysical beliefs as it is of our political, social, or economic beliefs.”25
The Canadian federal government resolution passed in parliament in 2017 and condemning Islamophobia is a clear example of such word warfare. How’s this for an exquisite irony? A government that has supported the US- NATO led regime change wars that brought death and destruction to millions of Muslims in the Middle East passes a resolution presumably designed to protect Muslims? Your Nonsense-BS detector should vibrate rigorously every time you hear this free speech suppressing term or the political rationale for it.
Sometimes your default skepticism will pick up on a telltale silence. What isn’t being said can speak volumes. One of the more glaring examples of late is the loud silence concerning the war crimes Saudi Arabia’s is committing in its US-supported bombings of Yemen.26 When was the last time you heard a Western politician issue an unequivocal condemnation of this outrage? If the Empire’s conscience is capable of moral outrage, it appears it has been trumped by the prospect of more arms sales to the Saudis. Or is it the promise of continued support for the petro dollar?
Jon Stewart performed a useful public service in his reading of the news on Comedy Central’s Daily Show for many years.27 The show's cauldron boiled the day’s lies, inconsistencies and ironies to the surface and served it up as satire. Freedom fighters are well advised to develop a similar satirical bent. It will enable them convert low-grade propaganda into higher value entertainment. Besides, humour and laughter are essential to good mental health.
5. Develp your political literacy and political savvy.
Freedom fighters need to achieve a degree of political literacy. It’s not sufficient to know the traditional categories like Republication, Democrat, Libertarian, Conservative, NDP and Liberal. Such political labels can also be misleading. Americans should know by now that voting Democrat or Republican hasn’t made much difference for the last 16 or so years. Both parties have guaranteed America a bottom line of more war, more debt and widening economic disparity across society. Author and political analyst, Kevin Barrett has identified what may be the most powerful political amalgam shaping Washington and thus Western policies in this era, describing it as “Neocon-American- Zionist-Imperialist or NAZI”.28
Similarly, Canadian voters would be justified in asking how the foreign policy of Justin Trudeau differs from that of Stephen Harper. Puppet MPs in both of their parties dutifully recite lines like, “Assad must go,” and short hand smears, like “the butcher, Assad,” for example. And there’s few signs that Trudeau is any less deferential than Harper to the Israel lobby. And, both conveniently brand Putin’s embrace of Crimea as “Russian aggression”, despite the fact that the West first set the conflict in motion by orchestrating a false flag regime change in Kiev.29
Totalitarianism is the fashion du jour and intolerance is the new tolerance. Those wishing to understand the suppression of free speech on campuses will find some explanation in the confluence of third wave feminism, cultural Marxism and the social justice movement.30 Only recently have a few universities recognized the dangers inherent in betraying their central purpose and recommitted to defence of free speech.31
Before the tyranny of political correctness reached its fanatical fever pitch, comedian, George Carlin flagged it for what it is: “Political correctness is America’s newest form of intolerance and it’s especially pernicious because it comes disguised as tolerance.” Consistent with Carlin’s critique, another astute observer commented that some of the most racist people he knew were self-described anti-racists. The shackles of human enslavement come in many forms, political correctness being one of the more insidious.
In this chapter, I have outlined my first five disciplines for the development of freedom fighters. They are in brief:
Mastery of warcraft isn't achieved over night. It comes with training, learning from the masters, and from personal experiences -- sometimes painful ones at that. Some understanding of this material however, can help reduce the slope of the learning curve. In Part B, I prescribe an additional five disciplines with more of an action orientation. Again, as with all the disciplines, the real learning comes in their application.

For the better part of the last four decades, I have been encouraging people and organizations to anticipate the shape of their futures and plan accordingly. It can be daunting, but it can also be immensely practical. It can be as practical as using a set of binoculars to scope out a distant slope when hiking or winterizing your car before winter’s onslaught. Organizations that develop foresight capabilities are, among other things, creating a kind of organizational radar. This enables them to integrate discernible elements of tomorrow into today’s strategies and decisions.
