Actor James Woods (patsy portrayer) returning on Twitter:

“I’ve tried this past year to live without the wealth of knowledge available on Twitter, but this kind of blazing insight can be found nowhere else, so… I’m back!”

“I was on vacation awhile, avoiding the news. How’d the Mueller thing work out? The impeachment scam? Who won the Democratic nomination for President? How’s Jeffrey Epstein doing?”

Perhaps the most paradoxical of lessons is that our god in a physical sense, Enki, is the one who we today call the devil; whereas our oppressor, the one who was dead-set against the advancement of mankind, the one who literally regarded us as disposable pieces of trash, is the one we now worship as our God - Enlil, the primary Jehovah/Yahweh of the Old Testament" - Michael Tellinger


You see, the devil's greatest trick wasn't convincing others he didn't exist, but into deceiving others that he was God. For a great deception is to be revealed. Now you know what we're up against.

On a side note, I watched Snowden recently as it was finally on broadcast cable. The rule of war is never reveal your position. The movie comes highly recommended by me. Another Oliver Stone masterpiece.

The catastrophe bond resolves the apparent dilemma -- [to "think the unthinkable"] -- by transforming uncertainty itself into a tradable event, protected by a legally binding contract. In the process it invents a form of property right that seeks to capture the speculative biological future at its most unpredictable—literally, before it has even emerged.

"It is increasingly clear that, in the twentieth century, the expert will replace (...) the democratic voter in control of the political system (...) Hopefully, the elements of choice and freedom may survive for the ordinary individual in that he may be free to make a choice between two opposing political groups (even if these groups have little policy choice within the parameters of policy established by the experts) (...) in general, his freedom and choice will be controlled within very narrow alternatives." - Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, p.866

"The society of experts will control propaganda and education. It will teach loyalty to the world government, and make nationalism high treason. The government, being an oligarchy, will install submissiveness into the great bulk of population (...) It is possible that it may invent ingenious ways of concealing its own power, leaving the forms of democracy intact, and allowing the plutocrats or politicians to imagine that they are cleverly controlling these forms (...) whatever the outward forms may be, all real power will come to be concentrated in the hands of those who understand the art of scientific manipulation." - Bertrand Russell, The Scientific Outlook, p. 175

the nostalgia cycles will be so close together that people will not be able to take a step without being nostalgic for the one they just took. At that point, everything stops. Death by Nostalgia. - Zappa

I know it's "quotes only," but I'm going to comment anyway.

Everything has stopped. The prophesized cultural stasis is an endless immersion. Enter the internet. Here it does not matter what you engage with, but that you are engaged. Not what you watch, but that you watch. Not the stuff you say about stuff, but that you say stuff about stuff.
Both his words and manner of speech seemed at first totally unfamiliar to me, and yet somehow they stirred memories - as an actor might be stirred by the forgotten lines of some role he had played far away and long ago.

I just say nonsense+harry potter house and people think I am insightful and not stupid.

i.e. "Pompeo thinks he is Slytherin but if you read the news it is clear he is actually Hufflepuff."
