Shallow State

by baldilocks

Remem­ber when con­spir­acy the­o­ries and the­o­rists were ridiculed? Those were the good old days. More and more, how­ever, Ibaldilocks find myself con­sid­er­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ties of things I had pre­vi­ously thought to be ridicu­lous. Watch­ing a con­certed effort to take down a nation will do that.

In addi­tion, I also find myself read­ing the opin­ions of per­sons who have been say­ing for decades, that there are groups long in exis­tence, which have had the USA, as it was founded, in their sites. The idea seemed so secre­tive and shad­owy before.

But, here is a man who points out that every­thing that’s hap­pen­ing to us has hap­pened out in the open. We just didn’t want to see it. (Be advised: the com­men­ta­tor is a 911 con­spir­acy theorist.)

This ever-​growing net­work has been con­structed right out in the open with a long lead-​up after World War Two, and then an expo­nen­tial ramp-​up fol­low­ing the attacks of 9÷11÷01 and the para­noia entailed by it. It is surely a remark­able thing that there have been no ter­ror acts on the grand scale in Amer­ica since 911. The 2013 Boston marathon “pres­sure cooker” bombs that killed 3 peo­ple and maimed over 250 oth­ers was a way smaller op than 911 and rel­a­tively ama­teur­ish, and the Deep State did not pre­vent the Chechen Tsar­naev broth­ers from pulling it off despite the fact that the elder brother, Tamer­lan, had been on an FBI watch list for two years prior to the bomb­ing. The Fort Hood mas­sacre of 2009 (13 fatal­i­ties [sic — 14, includ­ing the unborn child of one sol­dier]) was per­pe­trated by, of all things, an army psy­chi­a­trist Major Nidal Malik Hasan. You’d think the army would have been onto this fel­low… he being right under its nose… but what bet­ter illus­tra­tion of basic insti­tu­tional failure?

This national blind­ness is more than just a gigan­tic edu­ca­tional deficit. The blind­ness is spir­i­tual and it is the rea­son I often post about things Chris­t­ian. Many of us — includ­ing our earthly lead­ers – are unable to see what’s com­ing because of that blind­ness, one caused by things not flesh and blood.

I pray that God decides to open more eyes. Dis­cern­ment is your friend.

Remember when conspiracy theories and theorists were ridiculed? Those were the good old days. More and more, however, Ibaldilocks find myself considering the possibilities of things I had previously thought to be ridiculous. Watching a concerted effort to take down a nation will do that.

In addition, I also find myself reading the opinions of persons who have been saying for decades, that there are groups long in existence, which have had the USA, as it was founded, in their sites. The idea seemed so secretive and shadowy before.

But, here is a man who points out that everything that’s happening to us has happened out in the open. We just didn’t want to see it. (Be advised: the commentator is a 9/11 conspiracy theorist.)

This ever-growing network has been constructed right out in the open with a long lead-up after World War Two, and then an exponential ramp-up following the attacks of 9/11/01 and the paranoia entailed by it. It is surely a remarkable thing that there have been no terror acts on the grand scale in America since 9/11. The 2013 Boston marathon “pressure cooker” bombs that killed 3 people and maimed over 250 others was a way smaller op than 9/11 and relatively amateurish, and the Deep State did not prevent the Chechen Tsarnaev brothers from pulling it off despite the fact that the elder brother, Tamerlan, had been on an FBI watch list for two years prior to the bombing. The Fort Hood massacre of 2009 (13 fatalities [sic—14, including the unborn child of one soldier]) was perpetrated by, of all things, an army psychiatrist Major Nidal Malik Hasan. You’d think the army would have been onto this fellow… he being right under its nose… but what better illustration of basic institutional failure?

This national blindness is more than just a gigantic educational deficit. The blindness is spiritual and it is the reason I often post about things Christian. Many of us—including our earthly leaders–are unable to see what’s coming because of that blindness, one caused by things not flesh and blood.

I pray that God decides to open more eyes. Discernment is your friend.
