The Illuminati Strikes Again: April 19th and 20th Are Fraught
April 20th is indeed a cursed date in history. Everyone and their dog knows about the two most cited events of this date is history: 1) Adolf Hitler was born in 1889, becoming the most famous advertisement for pulling out early ever, and 2) the Columbine High School massacre in 1999. But, certainly, there are other events that occurred on April 20th that prove it is the most cursed date in history. – Ghoulpool

Free-Market Analysis: April 19th and 20th are bad days, from a freedom standpoint. Here's a list of April 20th's historical sad and bad events, courtesy of Ghoulpool.com:
1792 – France declares war on Austria, the beginning of French Revolutionary Wars (did the French really deserve to be free?)
1836 – U.S. Congress passes an act creating the Wisconsin Territory (besides cheese, what has Wisconsin ever given us? The Green Bay Packers? Please....)

Now, a close reading of the above will reveal that the author, to some extent, has his tongue firmly planted in his cheek. A further reading of his article reveals that this was the day US President Jimmy Carter was attacked by a "killer rabbit," thus rendering Carter, according to the author, "the biggest doofus in our country's presidential history."
A more sinister list has been compiled at the website of conspiracy theorist Jack Blood and can be seen at his website, deadlinelive.info. This one feature's TODAY'S events ...

We're not just printing these lists for purposes of entertainment or titillation. They bring up a point we've wanted to make for a while about the use of numerology by the powers-that-be.
It's evident and obvious that the power elite that wants to run the world makes use of secret societies and likely Satanic symbolism. Even the repeated occurrence of bad things happening on certain dates in history fits into this larger effort.
And as a result, it's generated a full-out industry within the larger alternative 'Net media. There are hundreds, even thousands, of blog sites devoted to analyzing the "Illuminati" and its "Satanic core."
Masonic symbols are dissected freely and with excruciating detail. There is no doubt, of course, that such symbolism plays a part in what is rapidly turning into a kind of "new world order."
But we have often questioned whether this symbolism is sincere or part of a larger dominant social theme employed by the elites to cow and intimidate the opposition.
The elites are skilled at using fear-based propaganda. It occurred to us long ago that much of what is repeated about the elites – their purported use of child sacrifice and other equally horrible rituals – is merely more of the same, intentional propaganda designed for specific purposes.
We have a hard time, for instance, believing that people who can patiently plan to rule the world for centuries are simply demon worshippers. We would much rather suspect that these individuals and dynastic families EMPLOY numerology and certain religious rituals.
The history of humankind is the history of elites using various kinds of religious worship to cement their rule and intimidate supplicants and enemies alike. Yet we are supposed to believe that the current generations are somehow victims of their own belief structure.
In our view, it likely doesn't work that way. Those who give too much credence to Illuminati symbolism and Satanic cults may in fact be doing the handiwork of those who promulgate such themes with considerable effort and malice aforethought.
This is the same group that has planted various ethnic prejudices at the heart of the coming global governance. Those who link this movement to a specific ethnicity alone are likely supporting the very memes that the elites want touted. This allows them to then claim victimhood. They become victims of "prejudice."
Those who try to tar this elite group of dynastic families and their corporate, religious and military enablers and supporters with one – and only one – specific ethnicity and who then further imbue this group with numerological and magical characteristics may be falling into a subtle trap.
What if this group intends for these memes to be spread? That's how they work, after all.
We have often noted this group constitutes a criminal enterprise and that racial characteristics are a secondary aspect of a generalized manipulation. Remove the "race" factor and the manipulation would remain.
Conclusion: It is complicated by the incessant emphasis on "majick" that is designed to provide an air of mystery and inevitability. Are commentators, with the best of intentions, playing into the hands of the very groups they likely despise?

Yes,my sentiments. Exactly. At least. Some background could be in order. Click to view link . And if you have read much on astrotheology, the Mayan calendar only portrays the end of the era of Pisces, which Jesus Was representative of.

DB: "We didn't deny such events take place. The point of the article was that the TOP elites don't believe in what they purvey or even the murders they apparently create.
Do you have a pipeline to the very top of the dynastic families that seem to want world domination? If so, in your wisdom, clarify if they believe in Satanism, or if they use such memes to inspire fear."
M: I don't know what the top elites believe in, but clearly they have invested a lot of energy in these rituals (as documented in the links I provided and elsewhere on the 'Net) so it likely has an important function besides propaganda. What could be this function? Again, I do not know for sure, but I maintain that this conspiracy is, at heart, a spiritual one. Money (and material domination) is only a tool, or a consequence of this spiritual "war". Perhaps the occult meaning of these rituals (if there is one) can be found there.
Speaking of propaganda, it does not seem to me that the mainstream media promotes the idea that the top elites are involved in these rituals, rather it is mostly seen as the stuff of "conspiracy theorists". The Dutroux affair, in particular, is a good example of how the judiciary system was instructed/coopted so as to avoid incriminating any elites potentially involved in the scandal.

Yes, you have a supposition. Exactly. And so do millions of others. What if it is merely a manipulation? Something to inspire fear.What if they DON'T believe this stuff.
EVERYTHING else involving these top elites is a manipulation. But not the "Illuminati." Not Satanism. Not Numerology. Not Zionism.
These are supposedly sincere manifestations. How do you know? How does anyone know? And do we do ourselves a disservice by speaking of them seriously?
Do we create exactly the effect that the top elites may want? Do we create fear and instill panic? Do we create hopelessness by spreading these memes?
Is this not a question that the alternative media should grapple with? Is this not the "third rail" of a certain kind of alternative media? Sure, this is "outside the box" thinking. But that's what we do.
The idea is that the top dynastic families truly believe in Satanism and that they have signed on to a movement called Zionism that involves "all Jews" sees suspect to us.
If you control hundreds of trillions, the chances are you make up lots of narratives. But it doesn't necessarily follow that you believe them YOURSELVES.
We would argue that elites rarely believe their narratives at the very top. If they did, how could they manipulate them? To us, this is a significant question.
As for history ... and determining by what is written down what the real beliefs of Money Power has been for the past centuries and millennia ... well go to it.
Find the evidence. Everything else seems to be "directed history" but not when it comes to the supposed beliefs of the top elites themselves.
This, we are supposed to swallow credulously.

So this is all propaganda?
The DB elves may want to consider the following, if they don't already know about it (and of course, they surely do know about it):
The Pedophocracy, by Dave McGowan (yes, the same who wrote about the Apollo missions and Laurel Canyon):
Beyond the Dutroux Affair:

An interesting perspective on this:

Now, it may be that the number of reported cases of missing children has been exaggerated for whatever reason (see the DB's "Kutcher's Misguided War on Child Prostitution"), but there is every reason to believe that the phenomenon is real and that the elites are really involved in horrible rituals on a grand scale.
I find it strange that the DB, who ought to know better, is trying to pass this off as being merely "intentional propaganda". It reminds me of when the DB tried to convince its readers that Zionism was nothing else than a modern elite promotion (which, again, may be partially true but ignores the long history of pre- or proto-Zionist movements and, more importantly, tries to equate Zionism with other elite memes such as global warming, which is patently false).

As far as Zionism goes, you may wish to continue to use the word but to us it only confuses the issue and tends to incite racism.
Qualify it all you want, people aren't listening. You think what is going on is cultural and "ethnic" while we believe it is primarily criminal and uses ethnicity to further (and confuse) its goals.
Above all, we believe the top elites USE racism as a weapon. Within that context, your use of the term could appear naive.

My lucky day! I announced on my Facebook page TODAY the 19th that I am running as a write in candidate for the President of the United States of America. Good or bad, timing is everything. TOMORROW the 20th I planned to start fundraising and sending out press releases. Is this just a coincidence? I think not.

I agree, there's too much fuss over occultism. Having weird ceremonies doesn't give anyone any power, central banking does.

Same thing with '2012', in my view. Though I'm not in the position to evaluate what the Mayans were REALLY capable of, and what they predicted or calculated, exactly, it seems to me that the 2012 hype falls into the same category: Intimidation and consecutive passivity/fatalism.
However, what if there's indeed a cosmic game-changer in the cards - come December 2012 - and humanity would have the chance to enter a higher level of consciousness, and the elite, knowing and fearing this, is employing everything at their disposal to overlay the event with doom and TEOTWAWKI - they might even try to fake a hostile space alien attack - in order to PREVENT the human race from 'going' where there's no such thing as elite rule: freedom of our mind(s)?
