Why A Growing Community of Women & Men Are Abstaining From Porn & Masturbation

Published

on

They are known as “fapstronauts,” and they are part of a growing community of hundreds of thousands of men and women who are abstaining from masturbation to internet pornography.

Their community is called “NoFap,” and its founder, Alexander Rhodes, is a man on a mission to educate and inspire the world about the damaging effects of masturbating to porn.

What could possibly be wrong with harmless masturbation, you might wonder? Aren’t we meant to enjoy the simple pleasure centres of our bodies?

According to Rhodes, masturbating to porn isn’t harmless at all. In fact, it is a silent epidemic of disastrous proportion.

“The emergence of internet pornography has changed the landscape of sexual development and relationships in a way never-before-seen in human history,” he said during his speech at the Out of the Shadows national press conference. “As a result, countless people are having their sexual tastes shaped by porn producers rather than real, human, experiences. These days, exposure to pornography seems to be a virtual certainty and young men [and women] are therefore automatically ‘opted-in’ to potential addiction, relational difficulty, porn-induced erectile dysfunction, and more,” he continued.

During his speech, Rhodes discusses the idea that porn is a relatively new variable in human evolution, and we are only beginning to see the repercussions of its use arise in the current generation of men and women.

He says exposure to porn is so rampant that it is practically mandatory for children to come into contact with some image or video before puberty. He quotes an Australian study which asked 258 male participants about their exposure to porn. Only one reported they’d never been exposed. Even more concerning, the median age of first exposure was 13 for males and 16 for females.

In this way, Rhodes says, kids are learning about sexuality through porn before their first kiss.

Frequent masturbation to porn is causing erectile dysfunction in a generation of men.

Today, a large community of “fapstronauts” is coming forward to talk about the impact this exposure has had on their lives. They report heavy reliance on porn and masturbation is manifesting in disturbing ways­ — erectile dysfunction (ED) and anorgasmia, the inability to orgasm during partnered sex, being a few of them.

According to a Kinsey report, in 1948 less than 1% of men under 30 had ED. In 2012, Swiss researchers found this number at 30%.

And the effects of watching porn span far beyond the physical, says Rhodes.

“Different studies on porn users are showing associations with sexual dysfunction, brain hypofrontality, desensitization, sensitization to porn cues, increased stress, less motivation, relationship problems, decreased sexual satisfaction, and other life-altering detriments.”
(For an extensive list of research articles on the effects of porn, click here.)

Numerous scientific studies have found that excessive porn use has biological and behavioural ramifications.

Rhodes also stresses that he and the NoFap community are in no way ‘sex negative’:

Being skeptical of pornography is not the same thing as being sex negative – there’s a huge difference between pornography and sex. In porn, the viewer is a voyeur, rather than a participant. It is on a screen. It is available in virtually endless amounts and pirated all over porn tube sites without monetary cost. It is always accessible, just a tap or click away. To our brain’s reward system, this can be an especially enticing quick and repeatable path to an orgasm, compared to partnered sex. In fact, many people who are quitting porn are doing so in the pursuit of better sex. Quitting porn is sex positive.

He notes many NoFap community members are there to improve their interpersonal relationships, whether it be for a marriage, a relationship, or single life. For others, it is simply a challenge of willpower — to seize control of your sexuality and turn it into superpowers.

“There are many, many different reasons to join but we’re all on NoFap with one goal – to help each other abstain from PMO (porn/masturbation/orgasm).”

Men And Women Report Incredible Life Shifts After Quitting Porn and Masturbation

Within the many pages of the NoFap forums, whether directly on the NoFap website or within the large and fast-growing Reddit community, it is easy to see the profound shifts taking place for people who’ve succeeded in the NoFap challenge, which consists of setting an intention to abstain from masturbation and watching porn for a certain amount of time and then riding it out.

The NoFap community is growing at a rapid pace.

Participants report diverse and overwhelmingly positive results from their efforts, like increased confidence, reduced anxiety, improved focus and memory, increased concentration, improved social skills, deeper sleeps, enhanced abilities to feel emotions, less brain fog, and even seemingly being more attractive to females.

While some might say these are rather normal powers, fapstronauts say that after years of feeling depressed, scattered. and unmotivated, the onset of these new changes feel as incredible as real ‘ superpowers‘ would.

One user, “borninthenorthwest,” said committing to NoFap altered his attitudes toward sex and women entirely:

My relationship with porn began at the age of 13 with nude Playboy photos of Pamela Anderson and Jenny McCarthy. This was in the days of dial-up Internet, and I was initiated by my childhood best friend at the time. Although this did not seem pornographic, relative to what my peers were beginning to look at, I now see that this was the beginning. It began a cycle where every woman I met was judged by these photogenic standards, and felt no real attraction towards most girls in high school, despite being popular and well-liked for my prowess on the guitar.

He explained his warped attitude toward women posed issues in his sex life.

“None of the girls I met in college could compare to the standards in my own mind. What few girls I was attracted to, I felt incapable of asking out for a date, and often would simply fantasize about them instead.”

He admits he developed an addiction to porn, and at 31 he discovered the NoFap community.

“Since then my relationship with both pornography and far more innocent triggers is vastly different. I no longer use porn at all, and no longer place the celebrity notion of beauty on the pedestal either, and am interested in real life and real people, slowly but surely engaging in reality.”

“Fapstronauts” claim that abstaining from porn and masturbation improves their overall confidence and sex lives.

Here is what a few other fapstronauts had to say.

Thesexymountainman:

“Went to a dance last night and asked a bunch of girls to dance. Felt like a boss. A few months ago I would have been sweating and shaking doing that. I would’ve been looking at the floor with my head down like a whipped puppy trying to ask a girl to dance. Stay strong everybody! There’s life after PMO, and it’s awesome af!”

Amadadado:

“Today I am walking around with random erections all day long, like a teenager. I am in my 40s, so this feels strange.”

IronWide:

“Life is amazing and it’s only been two weeks! I have found out how much more confident I am in public, and how much more secure I feel about myself.”

TheGaurdian97:

“I finished a 300 page book in one sitting today. Before I would fall asleep or procrastinate and play on my phone. Now I can read and actually remember what I read.” 

The Most Important Takeaway

Today, Rhode’s mission is to get the message out to parents so that healthy conversations can start happening at an early age.

Educating children about sexuality and the effects of watching porn is a crucial component in preventing porn addiction and porn related side effects.

“Families need to educate their children about pornography – and they need to do so before the porn producers do, since right now minors are getting hooked on porn long before they are made aware of the potential negative effects.”

And for the ones currently suffering from porn related side effects, he offers that the treatment to these symptoms simply comes down to one thing— removing porn from their lives:

We simply want people to ask themselves the question, how is porn impacting my life and relationships? And if they do not know how porn is impacting them, they can simply take a quick break, changing one variable in a self experiment, to see what impact it might have on their lives and their relationships. Already, thousands have made the personal decision to leave porn in the past, and have gone on to live more fulfilling lives with improved interpersonal relationships. It’s time we think about and openly discuss our heavy usage of pornography. In the meantime more and more people around the world will continue to declare their autonomy and reclaim their sexualities from the porn production companies.

If you are struggling with porn addiction, or are simply curious about what others are reporting from abstaining from masturbation, join the NoFap communities through their website or on Reddit. NoFap offers many resources as well as a global support network to help you transition away from the addictive influence of porn.

Mental Health Disorders To Cost $16 Trillion Worldwide By 2030

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Mental Health Disorders, in the eyes of big pharma, are a huge money making scam. This is intertwined with the serious issue of mental health and the factors that may be leading to it.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is the main treatment being pushed prescription drugs? Have you researched things like diet and other activities for treating mental health issues? Do these issues reflect how humanity feels about the current state of our world?

Pediatric vaccines represent a $40 billion dollar market, and with emerging studies showing numerous causes for concern, coupled with the scientific fraud we’ve seen conducted by multiple pharmaceutical giants, it’s imperative that we really start to question the medicines being prescribed to us, and the influence that the medical industry has on manufacturing these medicines as well as providing medical education.

It’s truly a shame that for the majority of human history, various cultures developed and utilize natural medicines effectively, but with the birth of chemical medicine (via John D. Rockefeller), all of the traditional ‘hospitals’ were completely destroyed, along with their methods of treatment. This effort to maintain a monopoly on healing is still seen today with the multiple attacks that have occurred on holistic naturopathic medicine.

It’s been more than a decade since John Ioannidis, an epidemiologist at Stanford University School of Medicine, published an article entitled “Why Most Published Research Findings Are False.” It became one of the most widely accessed articles in academic history. Since then, numerous scientists and people within the field, from doctors to professors, from whistleblowers within major medical organizations and pharmaceutical companies to editors-in-chief of the most prestigious medical journals in the world, have all been trying to create awareness around this issue.

Take doctor Richard Horton, current editor-in-chief of The Lancet, who publicly stated that most of the published research, possibly half of it, could be false due to corruption and scientific error. Arnold Seymour Relman, past editor -in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine has also expressed his disgust with regards to Big Pharma basically buying the medical industry. Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime editor-in-chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) has also done the same thing, along with many others.

Scientific Fraud

Then we have real-life documented examples of scientific fraud, whether that be pharmaceutical companies not disclosing the full results of their clinical trials, and downright lying about their medications in order to simply get them approved. And who is doing the approving? Government agencies and regulatory agencies who have extremely close ties to these companies. We clearly no longer live in a democracy, it’s become a corporatocracy.

Dr. Asseem Malhotra, a well-known doctor in Britain had some choice words to say in front of the European Parliament about modern-day medical education and overall knowledge doctors possess. He’s one of many who continues to emerge and speak out. You can read more about what he had to say, letting the world know that we have an “epidemic of misinformed doctors,” here, and you might also be interested in the following article, Why “Peer Reviewed” Science Continues To Lose Credibility.

Mental Health

Mental health is a HUGE money maker for the medical industry, and unfortunately, it’s highly targeted towards children. What I mean by that is that it seems so easy these days to label a child with ADD, ADHD, or even with ASD, depression, anxiety disorders and more. As a result, many of these children are medicated, and there are lots of them. Coupled with this initiative is a massive mental health awareness campaign that’s basically being used as propaganda to further perpetuate the problem.

When it comes to these labels, something that’s never really discussed are the financial ties between the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) panel members and the pharmaceutical industry. It was never really investigated until American psychologist Lisa Cosgrove and others decided to take the initiative. They found that, of the 170 DSM panel members, more than half (large number) had one or more financial associations with companies in the pharmaceutical industry.

One hundred percent of the members of the panels on ‘mood disorders’ and ‘schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders’ had financial ties to drug companies. The connections are especially strong in those diagnostic areas where drugs are the first line of treatment for mental disorders. In the next edition of the manual, it’s the same thing:

The DSM appears to be more a political document than a scientific one. Each diagnostic criteria in the DSM is not based on medical science. No blood tests exist for the disorders in the DSMN. It relies on judgements from practitioners who rely on the manual. – Lisa Cosgrove, PdD, Professor of Counselling and School Psycyhology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. Lisa Cosgrove (source)

$16 Trillion By 2030

This is very concerning, especially because mental health disorders are expected to cost the global economy approximately $16 trillion a year by the time we hit 2030. As the Daily Mail reports, this comes as a result of the collective failure to respond to this global health crisis, which will result in monumental loss of human capabilities and avoidable suffering.

Although the information above goes to show how much of a fraud a large part of the mental health industry represents, it’s a real growing problem, and we continue to simply pad the problem with medications instead of addressing the actual causes. These include our food, the heavy metals present in the environment, air quality, pesticides, pollution, trauma and a whole lot more. It seems these are never addressed, and when they are, it seems there is a harsh opposition to accept some of these things as the actual cause.

This is because if true, a complete change would come for many. Take Monsanto, for example: what happens if the pesticides they produce, spray, and approve for use with their collusion inside of the government are actually causing multiple diseases? This means a shutdown of an entire company, and billions/trillions of dollars lost.

The $16 trillion cost was estimated from World Bank data based on the loss to the global economy if people of a working age suffer from mental health problems.

‘Anyone who cares about poverty, education, social cohesion or economic progress should work to improve mental health, putting the vast knowledge we have on promotion, prevention and care, into action,’ Professor Vikram said.

Around 13.5 million deaths, including suicides, could be avoided globally every year if more money was invested into mental health, the authors estimate.

The Commission also urged low and middle-income countries to raise their spending on mental health from less than one per cent of their healthcare budget to at least five per cent.

The report, which was launched at the first Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit in London, claimed people with mental illness still suffer ‘gross human rights violations’ in many countries.

‘Human rights violations and abuses persist in many countries, with large numbers of people locked away in mental institutions or prisons, or living on the streets, often without legal protection,’ the report, which was put together by 28 experts, claims.

It Shouldn’t Cost So Much

In fact, money is not even the answer. These figures come from multiple costs, but mainly from the cost of medications. Medications when it comes to mental health issues are iffy at best. The very fact that we can’t see chemical flows on the brain from which apparently many mental health disorders arise, should ring off alarm bells in the heads of most people.

It because the only imbalances we know of in the brains of people called mental patients are the ones inflicted on them by the psychiatric drugs. We make a false claim that they have biochemical imbalances and then we give them biochemical imbalances. There is much we don’t understand about ‘mental illness.’

Why shouldn’t it cost so much? Because mental health interventions that show success deal with mindfulness, talking about emotions, thoughts and feelings. Meditation can help, and multiple therapies that don’t involve medication exist. The sad thing about this is that people who has been diagnosed with mental health issues are not provided with any options or resources other than a medication recommendation from their physician. For the most part, the physician doesn’t really know what is going on.

The main reason we take so many drugs is that drug companies don t sell drugs, they sell lies about drugs. This is what makes drugs so different from anything else in life… Virtually everything we know about drugs is what the companies have chosen to tell us and our doctors… the reason patients trust their medicine is that they extrapolate the trust they have in their doctors into the medicines they prescribe.

The patients don’t realize that, although their doctors may know a lot about diseases and human physiology and psychology, they know very, very little about drugs that’ve been carefully concocted and dressed up by the drug industry… If you don t think the system is out of control, please email me and explain why drugs are the third leading cause of death… If such a hugely lethal epidemic had been caused by a new bacterium or a virus, or even one-hundredth of it, we would have done everything we could to get it under control.” – Dr. Peter Gotzsche (source)

The Takeaway

Question what you read and hear. We have massive mental health campaigns happening right now to create awareness of the problem, but none of these campaigns address the issues mentioned above, and it seems the medical industry, in general, is never questioned at all. In my opinion, mental health disorders and diagnoses represent the heart of medical fraud.

It’s important to recognize the increase in environmental factors mentioned in the article that are no doubt contributing to mental illness. Furthermore, it’s important to address the fact that we are never advised or taught how to deal with trauma, our emotions and our feelings while growing up. We learn how to memorize, we don’t learn how to empathize. Reversing this would assist in coping with the modern day mental health epidemic we see today.

We Now Know The Government Funded Group Pushing Facebook Censorship

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Facebook has partnered with The Atlantic Council to 'stop fake news and propaganda.' This council is funded by US government agencies and massive corporations who are arms dealers and fund war and terrorism.

  • Reflect On:

    Given who funds this organization, does it point to the fact that Facebook is truly the one election meddling? Are the mainstream media the only ones to be trusted with election news? Think about who is controlling the narrative here.

On October 11, 2018, 58+ more pages were removed from Facebook causing yet another uproar in the ‘war’ against independent media. My inbox flooded with messages as friends and other page admins began asking me when I thought we were going to be next.

The thought crossed my mind, the day could come, but for now, we will keep building our platform off Facebook, stay grounded in our thoughts and continue producing quality, neutral, conscious media and journalism. We feel Facebook will not have any REAL excuse to come after that, but we know they don’t need an excuse per se.

After all, all of my friend’s pages were just deleted because Facebook felt they were tied to some sort of Russian/US election meddling. It’s interesting when you consider the only people meddling in the election is Facebook. Why else would they delete numerous Facebook pages which often oppose the state-controlled mainstream media?

Beyond the political pressure Facebook seems to be receiving, what actually goes on during this all-out targeted censorship? We may never know exactly, but signs point to a specific group that appears to be heavily involved in the process.

The Group That Guides Facebook Censorship

Enter The Atlantic Council (TAC).

According to a Google Search,

advertisement - learn more

TAC is an American think tank in the field of international affairs. Founded in 1961, it provides a forum for international political, business, and intellectual leaders. It manages ten regional centers and functional programs related to international security and global economic prosperity.

Sounds nice, but then again so do many things that have profit and control driven intentions. Take Monsanto for example, here is an explanation of what they do according to a Monsanto rep.

Monsanto is a global modern agriculture company. We develop products and tools to help farmers around the world grow crops while using energy, water, and land more efficiently. We believe innovation has the potential to bring humanity’s needs in balance with the resources of our planet.

A look into what Monsanto really does might reveal such things as harming and destroying nature en masse. Poisoning the masses and feeding them a genetically experimental food that in many studies shows dangers.

The point is, we have to look a little more closer at corporations.

So who exactly are The Atlantic Council? And are they actually helping Facebook decide who to censor? Good questions. Let’s begin by looking at who funds TAC.

Here are a few donors according to TAC’s website. They include the US and foreign government agencies as well as prominent companies and figures tied to deep state activity.

HSBC Holdings plc
Rockefeller Brothers Fund
Google Inc.
Foreign & Commonwealth Office of the United Kingdom
Lockheed Martin Corporation
The Coca-Cola Company
Chevron
Bahaa Hariri (prominent Lebanese billionaire)
United States Army
United States Chamber of Commerce
United States Marine Corps
United States Navy

Below is a recent tweet from Daniel McAdams, the Executive Director, Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, outlining the funding of The Atlantic Council.

With my 11 years of research into this space, I feel as though this is the type of group responsible for controlling narratives around the world. Whitewashing wars, creating hatred between nations on the public level, and fostering narratives that lead to wars and conflict. After all, it’s funded by arms manufacturers like Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, and Boeing.

In other words, TAC may very well be a propaganda arm for agencies like NATO, the US Government and so forth. This would mean they work to control the narratives that come out of mainstream media to control what the public thinks and discusses. This leads to what the public will ultimately support.

According to Facebook’s newsroom, on May 17th, 2018, Facebook announced its partnership with The Atlantic Council to combat ‘fake news.’

Today, we’re excited to launch a new partnership with the Atlantic Council, which has a stellar reputation looking at innovative solutions to hard problems.

How did the mainstream media view this partnership with a council such as this? A council backed by the very billionaires and corporations independent media organizations prove fund wars, terrorism, and harm/mislead the public?

“US think tank’s tiny lab helps Facebook battle fake social media” – Reuters

Facebook partners with Atlantic Council to improve election security” – The Hill

Facebook Partners With the Atlantic Council to Fight Election Propaganda” – Fortune

Everything points to ‘fake news’ and ‘propaganda.’ The narratives that began the moment Hillary Clinton, the next Deep State chosen president, lost the 2016 election.

As the public, we have to ask the question, who’s watching the watchers? If mainstream media holds the position of never being purveyors of propaganda, then how do we know who’s truly holding them accountable? Well, I guess it’s the Atlantic Group. Helping to create narratives that point to independent dissenting media voices as ‘propaganda.’

Perhaps this is the group behind the ‘Russian/US election fraud narrative.’ Maybe this is the group who is still trying to big up the highly corrupt Clinton’s. Maybe this is a group that is creating the propaganda that enters the mainstream. (A story we’d love to investigate once we can afford to hire our investigative team.)

Does TAC Really Create Propaganda? Yes!

How do we know The Atlantic Council creates propaganda themselves? Let’s look back to when Ben Nimmo, a one-time NATO press officer, and Atlantic Council board member, stated that grammar mistakes were “proof” that journalists or social media users were paid Kremlin trolls.

Ben Nimmo later went on to create a worldwide fake news story, that the mainstream media heavily ran with, calling a retired British citizen a Russian bot. The British citizen and Twitter user Ian56789 later came out on Sky News showing his real face and identity, proving Ben Nimmo was wrong about him being a Russian bot. Of course, the mainstream media didn’t go national with that story, only the fake news version.

WikiLeaks was critical of Nimmo and The Atlantic Council after that bout of propaganda.

The point here is, Facebook choosing to work with this group essentially states Facebook is becoming nothing more than a narrative controller just like the mainstream media. TAC on several occasions has created fake news stories, that went viral, about the very political narratives independent media is pointing out as false yet are being called propaganda. So who is truly creating propaganda?

As a side, this is a council that gave its top global leadership awards to former US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

What Do We Do & The Takeaway

Independent media, specifically conscious media as well, are crucially important voices in our society during a time where Orwell’s 1984 is happening right in front of us. As Facebook, Google and other corporations strip funding from organizations like Collective Evolution, the reach stops, the work slows down and the propaganda voices of the mainstream get louder.

This is a time for us to come together and truly choose which direction we go forward in. We must stop supporting mainstream media outlets and do our best to share and keep independent media alive. CE has lost 80% of its funding since two years ago. We have regained about 10% of that so far through our community support campaign. It’s up to us to see what prevails here. We must become active.

Since we can be removed from Facebook at any point, join our email list to stay updated with our content.

Is Saudi Journalist’s Disappearance & Allegations Of Murder A ‘White’ False Flag?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    US-based Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi walked into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 and never came out. Turkish sources claim to have audio and video evidence that Khashoggi was murdered, and Saudi officials deny the claim.

  • Reflect On:

    Can we start to see beyond the perceptions being created by players in the geopolitical arena? What will it take for deception to end and truth to reign in our world?

US-based Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a well-known critic of Saudi Arabia and its leadership, went missing in Turkey on October 2. He entered Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul around 1 pm to obtain a document certifying he divorced his ex-wife. He has not been seen since.

The former editor of Saudi newspaper Al Watan fled the kingdom last year fearing for his safety amid a wide-scale crackdown on dissidents. He had become a frequent contributor to The Washington Post and continued to critique Saudi Arabia from the safety of the U.S., often raising concerns about the war in Yemen as well as diplomatic tensions with Qatar.

There is video evidence widely circulating that show Khashoggi entering the consulate in Istanbul. One would think that if it existed, video evidence showing him exiting the building would be just as accessible, but none has been forthcoming.

Claims Of Proof

US and Turkish officials have now been quoted as saying they have proof that Khashoggi was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in what Turkish sources describe as “premeditated murder”.

Sources told Al Jazeera that a delegation of 15 Saudi officials arrived in Turkey the day Khashoggi, 59, disappeared. “The Saudi officials flew into Istanbul on two different flights on Tuesday,” the sources said. There is video that has been put out in the public by Turkish officials piecing together the movement of this Saudi team while in Turkey that traces their involvement.

However, the most damaging evidence has not been released to the public. It allegedly consists of audio and video recordings from inside the embassy that implicate this Saudi team in Khashoggi’s murder. As reported in this Washington Post article,

advertisement - learn more

The recordings show that a Saudi security team detained Khashoggi in the consulate after he walked in Oct. 2 to obtain an official document before his upcoming wedding, then killed him and dismembered his body, the officials said. The audio recording in particular provides some of the most persuasive and gruesome evidence that the Saudi team is responsible for Khashoggi’s death, the officials said.

“The voice recording from inside the embassy lays out what happened to Jamal after he entered,” said one person with knowledge of the recording who, like others, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss highly sensitive intelligence. “You can hear his voice and the voices of men speaking Arabic,” this person said. “You can hear how he was interrogated, tortured and then murdered.” A second person briefed on the recording said men could be heard beating Khashoggi.

Why Is The Evidence Not Made Public?

Apparently, Turkish officials are wary of releasing the recordings, fearing they could divulge how the Turks spy on foreign entities in their country, according to those same officials. It’s not clear that U.S. officials have seen the footage or listened to the audio, but Turkish officials have described their contents to their American counterparts.

Saudi officials have denied any involvement in the disappearance of Khashoggi, saying he left the consulate shortly after entering. Again, video evidence of him leaving the consulate should be as easy to obtain as the video of him entering, if this was true. This sentiment was echoed by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan earlier on. Certainly, video of Khashoggi’s fiancee waiting outside the embassy for him, and her testimony that he never came out, doesn’t help matters for the Saudis. This seems to be an iron-clad case.

Key word: seems.

Could This Be A False Flag?

Bear with me here, because this is just speculation. But I believe it is worth considering.

As in previous articles such as ‘Russia Exposes Deep State Tactics Ahead Of Impending Syria False Flag Chemical Attack,’ my instincts about false flags start with the question of the motivation for the act perpetrated:

When I do have conversations with people about Syria or other false flag scenarios, I don’t get much into the hard evidence that makes me believe these chemical weapons attacks are staged events. I talk more about the motivation. I ask the question that if Bashar Al-Assad, President of Syria and commander-in-chief of the Syrian Armed Forces since 2000, seems to be winning the battle against rebels in his country who seek to remove him from power, then what could possibly be his motivation for authorizing chemical weapons attacks against his citizens, which ends up harming and killing innocent children? Surely he realizes this would not only bring the wrath of the international community but also a complete breakdown in the support of his own people?

In the case of Khashoggi, we have to ask about the motivation that Prince Mohammed Bin Salman and the Saudi regime would have in killing the dissident journalist in the fashion they did. Yes, it could certainly be argued that the Saudi regime may have wanted him dead, and certainly Western media has been providing evidence to this effect. However, one has to ask if this powerful regime would ever want to do things in this way, in a way that CLEARLY implicates them directly in the disappearance of Khashoggi, and brings upon them a totality of unwanted scorn and contempt from the international community at large. Why unwanted? There are at least 3 reasons:

1. Image

Saudi Arabia under Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has at least been trying to present an image of a country in the process of implementing economic and human rights reforms. The idea that Saudi Arabia would go so far out of its way to kill a dissenting voice that was not even in the country tears this new image to shreds.

2. Business

Saudi Arabia has a lot riding on their growing business partnerships and the continued work through the upcoming ‘Davos in the Desert’ conference in Riyadh. British billionaire Richard Branson summed up the impact these murder allegations could have: “I had high hopes for the current government and its leader Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. What has reportedly happened in Turkey…if proved true, would clearly change the ability of any of us in the West to do business with the Saudi government.”

3. Military Protection

Saudi Arabia wants to maintain good relations with the US, in order to continue the military protection they have enjoyed for the past several decades. Donald Trump has hinted that this arrangement could be severely impacted if it turns out that Khashoggi was murdered by Saudi Arabia.

Clearly, a plan as elaborate as this one to kill Jamal Khashoggi in an embassy in a foreign country would have required plenty of thought, and surely some of the thought would concern the impact of such a transparent plan on Saudi Arabia’s standing with the rest of the world, an impact, as noted in the previous section, that would be wholly negative for the Saudi Kingdom. That’s the part that doesn’t make sense.

Motivation For The Other Side

And so let’s consider the ‘other’ side of this situation, which I will define here as the Alliance affiliated with the Trump administration intent on taking down the Deep State, as discussed in the recent article ‘Many Insiders Believe Military Tribunals For Deep State Will Happen Any Time Now.‘ If we could be so bold and presumptuous as to believe that this Alliance is as perfectly willing and able to commit false flag operations as the Deep State has done throughout history, the question of motivation starts to take shape.

Having no access to insider information this is broad speculation on my part, but given that Saudi Arabia is considered by many commentators to be one of the few remaining Deep-State controlled nations (along with Israel and a few others), then attempting to negatively impact the status, financial stability and military protection of Saudi Arabia would seem high on the Alliance wish list.

The bullet-proof narrative that has been created here, and the clear, conclusive evidence that is being put out to the public (or withheld, for strategic reasons) seems perfectly designed to cause a significant hit to the reputation of Saudi Arabia in all forums of world opinion.  And Saudi Arabia clearly seems to have been caught off guard, unable to offer much resistance to the evidence other than complete denial of the prevailing narrative.

Could the Alliance have pulled this off in concert with newly-compliant ally Turkey and Khashoggi himself? Sure. Arrangements could have been made with allies planted inside the Saudi Embassy in Turkey to escort Khashoggi back out of the embassy clandestinely, into some witness-protection type arrangement; perhaps his fiancee is not his true fiancee, and participated in this in order for him to have a credible reason to enter the embassy–seeking divorce papers so he could then marry her. The video and audio ‘evidence’ that is being talked about could have been role-played and recorded in advance. Footage of the Saudi nationals flying into Turkey could also have been staged. No part of this kind of plan, which could have been hatched when Khashoggi became a US resident, would have been materially difficult to pull off.

If this was a false flag, Saudi Arabia would certainly know it. But in a way, it wouldn’t matter. There would be no way for Saudi Arabia to change the perception that has been created, and politics is all about perception. The negative image that has been foisted upon Saudi Arabia gives the Alliance and the Trump administration leverage in dealing with Saudi Arabia politically, economically, and militarily. When Donald Trump talks about Saudi Arabia, his calm, slow-playing posture makes him appear to be a man who suddenly has a lot of leverage.

The Takeaway

What I have proposed here is just a theory, but at the very least it is an attempt to discern the hidden motivations behind an event that is playing out in the political arena. The very reason that geopolitical theatre continues to be acted out in front of us, featuring deception, lies, false flags, and so on, is that these tricks have worked for so long to create their desired perception.

Our collective discernment thus becomes very important here. The more we question and investigate stories that don’t quite make sense, and the better we become at seeing through these schemes designed to get us to go along with certain political agendas, the less we will have to deal with it. Eventually, as our consciousness grows, all lies and deception will become transparent to us, and the truth will reign.
