The Potemkin Village in New Orleans

With this year’s Super Bowl it looks like the Powers That Be realized they could stop pretending that the Super Bowl had become anything but a chance to unite their financially, ethically, and spiritually bankrupted subjects in worship of the militaristic imperial state and into acceptance of the state’s push toward complete power over their lives. The whole show has become an embarrassing parallel of the circuses of the late Roman Empire.

Where to begin? There was the fawning praise and worship of the military as the nation’s “heroes”, as if these people weren’t the otherwise unemployable tools of foreign aggression and dominance. Even going so far as to have an ad that stated, “Without the military, there’d be no Super Bowl”! I nearly snorted my beer out my nose on that one.

Then there was the shameless display of kids from Sandy Hook. I guess being put on such display before the nation at the Great Games was considered a suitable way to help heal the emotional wounds of the youngins who survived the tragedy. It looked suspiciously like callous propagandizing and tear-jerking to my jaded eyes, however. You’d think that a country that gobbled up The Hunger Games books and movies in the last year would find it at least a little revolting to see children offered up for viewing like that amidst all the state propaganda and just before a form of gladiatorial combat.

The Sandy Hook choir was joined by Jennifer Hudson, of course. Her mother, brother and nephew were killed in a shooting in 2008. I was all but expecting them to lower the corpses of her family members from the rafters as the encore.

I’m not the only commentator in the liberty world who will make the observation that the Super Bowl is just one of the many circuses to go with the bread doled out by the collapsing USSA empire. But something else really struck me about the Super Bowl recently. It’s not just about the entertaining distraction or even about propaganda. In its hype and glitz, it’s like a Potemkin Village—an attempt to convince the hundred or so million people falling into possibly permanent poverty that everything is “Just Fine”. That the US is still a “rich” country on the verge of economic recovery after a temporary bad spell (caused by a few “greedy capitalists” and not central banking) and that the violent criminals running their lives have everything well in hand with the best interest of the people at heart. So sit back, relax and watch these millionaires tackle each other and the entire over-the-top spectacle!

I should point out here, however, that I enjoy sports. And, there’s nothing wrong with making millions for playing a sport. I want to make it clear that I have no problem with sports on the free market, or with athletes getting stupendously rich for using their talents in a free market. I’m not offended like those people who spurt nonsense about what a shame it is that men get millions of dollars from willing customers for carrying a ball around a field while teachers and soldiers, both of whom are subsidized by dollars taken from people under threat of violence, make so much less. I have no problem with athletes or actors and directors making millions if customers want to give them all that money to watch them practice their craft. As a peaceful person who hates the thievery and violence of the politicians and central banks, I hate when any talent is twisted to serve the state, as it is in the case of the Super Bowl (and Major League Baseball and Hollywood in general; it’s also why I can’t stand the inherently statist Olympics). I wish they would just play football. Instead there is all the flag-waving and state-speak of the state’s killers as heroes returning home to their families, as if they were reluctantly blowing up civilians to defend their homes instead of acting as mass murderers and state enforcers in exchange for a government paycheck.

So I do have a problem when what should be a free market pageant of the freakiest human athletes is instead used to help create a Potemkin Village. The term “Potemkin Village” comes from an apocryphal tale of Grigory Potemkin erecting fake settlements along the Dnieper River in order to make Russian Empress Catherine II (known as “Catherine the Great”) believe that things were going much better with the Crimean campaign against the Turks than they really were. The story of these false settlements are said to be as accurate as the stories of Catherine’s sexual appetite for horses. That is to say they were a deliberate twisting of real events, spread by enemies. (Catherine did have a healthy sexual appetite, as Grigory Potemkin, one of her many lovers, would know.)

The veracity of the story of the Potemkin Village is debated, with some experts claiming that the story is entirely a myth. Either way, Grigory Potemkin and his villages have slipped into our language as denoting something fake built up to impress and to hide the complete lack of anything underneath.

Which brings us back to the Super Bowl. Such a mighty effort to show wealth, unity, strength! And then the lights went out. Amidst this big, money-eating pageant, something as basic — and symbolic — as the lights staying on the whole time couldn’t be managed.

That’s what they get for holding the Super Bowl in a third world communist country, though.

I was almost wishing the lights would stay out for a few more hours and we could watch in HD a remake of Hurricane Katrina in the Superdome… but this time with rich people.

My more philosophical and poetic friends tell me that the gods are drawn to hubris because they like cutting prideful people down to size. So maybe they were watching this year’s Super Bowl and decided it was time for a slight hiccup in the proceedings, maybe giving a small, easily dismissed warning that the whole facade is going to come down and reveal the moral and economic emptiness just beneath . . . .

It may not be the wisest thing to shrug off a subtle message from the gods. If they are indeed suggesting that the jig is just about up, shouldn’t you be making your plans accordingly? If getting out of Dodge — and getting ready to annul your marriage to the USSA — isn’t on your immediate lists of things to do, at least make sure you can get the best economic and actionable advice possible to thrive as the economic reality in the US can no longer be covered up by bread and circuses.

Super Bowl 2013 Recap: The Illuminati Agenda Continues

Feb 5th, 2013


The 2013 Super Bowl featured the Sandy Hook chorus, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, a whole bunch of advertisements and, oh yeah, a football game. While things were not as overt and in your face as last year’s half time show/celebration of Great Priestess Madonna, there were nevertheless a a lot of Illuminati Agenda-pushing going on. Here’s a recap of the noteworthy elements that occurred in the 2013 Super Bowl, the TV event of the year.

The Sandy Hook Chorus


Jennifer Hudson sings with the Sandy Hook Chorus … a group that was NOT created by the young kids that are part of it.

As described in my recent article, Sandy Hook Survivors Are Made to Sing “Over the Rainbow” to Commemorate the Shooting, children that survived the shooting are currently being used in all kinds of media events. A few weeks ago, they recorded Over the Rainbow (an MK-Ultra trigger song) and were made to perform on live television. For the Super Bowl, the Sandy Hook Chorus was sent to New Orleans to sing before 70,000 spectators and millions of TV viewers. Why? Why do we keep bringing this horrible shooting to the center stage? To remind people that “gun control is good”? Isn’t it very sad and ironic that these kids must sing America the Beautiful after witnessing a horrible massacre, one that might have been caused by a mind-controlled patsy? Why are these kids being booked and flown to all kinds of nerve-wrecking mass media events? Is this still part of their “healing process”? Why are they being mixed with the Illuminati entertainment industry? Shouldn’t they be home with their friends and families instead of being under the spotlight? The exploitation of their image is rather unsettling.

The performance was led by an industry-favorite, Jennifer Hudson – aka the “new Whitney Houston” – who is always chosen to perform in important occasions. Hudson also survived a strange and terrible tragedy, with the triple-murder of her mother, brother and nephew in 2008.

The Half Time Show

The best word I can use to describe the half-time show is “Beyoncé-ish”. It was like, sooooo Beyoncé. After “singing” (kinda) at the Obama inauguration, Beyoncé was again the star of a major event. No need to say that she’s an industry favorite, a figure-head of the Illuminati music industry. As described in several articles on this site, the symbolism in her work clearly indicates who she is working for. While her half time show was not the big, pharaonic occult display of Madonna’s 2012 show, we still witnessed the mind-control symbolism that is usually part of Beyoncé’s material.

The entire show focused on duality and the multiplying of personalites, two concepts that are extremely important in Monarch mind control (read the article Origins and Techniques of Monarch Mind Control if you don’t know what I’m talking about).

The first and most visible cue to the concept of duality and alter-personas is the stage itself which consists of two faces that somewhat look like Beyoncé.

The stage is made up of two faces facing each other, an image evoking duality and multiple personalities.

The first part of the show contained a combination of symbols and visual effects that refer to the concepts of duality and multiple personalities.

At the beginning of "Baby Boy", Beyonce is in front of a black and white background (a representation of duality). Through video effects, she then "multiplies herself".

More play with black and two white silhouettes (alters personas?).






Here we see one black silhouette (which is Beyoncé, the “core” personality) and two white silhouettes (alters/personas?).

The two white silhouettes turn into real human Beyonce look-a-likes who dance with her for a while, amidst confusing effects. The blurring between reality and illusion is a focal point of mind control and is aptly displayed here. At one point, the look-a-likes disappear.

We then see a lot of lights flashing and confusing effects, making us wonder who is the real Beyoncé.

Even the saxophone girl has the theme of duality plastered all over her.




Even the saxophone girl, with her Masonic checkerboard pattern dress, conveys the concept of duality. At one point, the screen behind Beyoncé displays the classic symbol representing the fracturing of personalities, one that is almost ALWAYS part of MK-themed narratives.

The screen that displayed alter personas and dualistic patterns shatters with a loud shattering noise, a symbol indicating the fracturing of persona in MK symbolism.

The first part of the show was therefore all about duality and multiple Beyoncés. Then, the group Destiny’s Child was randomly brought back from the late-90s to sing along with one of Beyoncé’s solo hits. During Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It), Beyoncé briefly flashes a hand sign – one that readers of this site probably already know all too well. This gesture generated a lot of media attention.

Quite a few mainstream websites such as Yahoo! and Huffington Post published articles about this hand sign, asking if Beyoncé was “flashing an Illuminati symbol”. These articles however all come to the same conclusion: Beyoncé was doing the ROC sign to shout-out her husband’s label (duuuh) and everyone who thinks otherwise is a moron. Many of the articles then provide a quick, half-assed recap of what the Illuminati is, making sure to distort many facts to make the whole thing seem completely idiotic. This trend is becoming increasingly appearent on the web and mass media.

I admit that the mainstream sources are right: This hand sign is indeed the “ROC sign”. But here’s my question to these “journalists”: Where does the ROC sign come from? What does it represent? Why does a label named Roc-A-Fella (a nod to the Rockefellers, one of the most powerful Illuminati elite families) uses a triangle hand sign to represent itself? How about going a little further than the obvious superficial answer for a change, mainstream media?

The ROC hand sign refers to the All-Seeing Eye within a triangle, the ultimate Illuminati symbol.

In Judaism, the gesture is known as Kohanim hands or Priestly Blessing. It is depicted on 18th Century grave.

The hand sign is not random. It signifies something and flashing it during the Super Bowl tells a lot about who is running the show.

Also, to respond to the ridiculous claims of those mainstream articles: No, Beyoncé and Willow Smith are not IN the Illuminati. They are USED by the Illuminati-owned music industry to push an elite agenda. Pop artists are pawns who signed a contract binding them to the elite and requiring them to do their bidding. Most readers of this site know this already, but there is growing push in mainstream media to discredit “conspiracy theories” by writing stuff like “Look at these idiots who think that Beyonce is part of an 18th century secret society”.

Anyhow, let’s look at the rest of the Super Bowl.

Lights Out

During the 3rd quarter of the football game, half of the lights go out. It was caused by a mysterious “anomaly” that caused the system to shut down.


Considering the Illuminati sub-text of the event, I cannot help but think about the occult pseudo-meaning of having half of the stadium basking in light and having the other half being in darkness. I am not saying this happened on purpose, but it is still an interesting synchronicity. One thing is for sure, the “glitch” energized the 49ers, who scored a few touchdowns and got back in the game. All of a sudden, this lost cause became interesting and the fourth quarter was rather … thrilling. Apparently, Mercedes-Benz knew that would happen.

This Mercedes-Benz magazine ad was eerily correct.

This Mercedes-Benz magazine ad was eerily correct.

While the ad seemingly refers to the fourth quarter of the fiscal year, the literal meaning of the ad is still perplexing, considering what happened at the game.

If we combine this ad with the one I described in The 2013 Mercedes Super Bowl Commercial and its Occult Message, one can at least say that Mercedes-Benz brought a lot of strangeness to the SuperBowl.

In Conclusion

While things were somewhat more subdued and abstract in this year’s SuperBowl (versus the 2012 edition), there were still many elements that went right along the Agendas described on this site. When we combine all of the elements together, we realize that there’s a common and reoccurring theme going on, one that points directly to the “hidden hand” of the Illuminati and its many Agendas.

The mass media coverage of Beyoncé’s Illuminati hand sign, also reflects a new trend: Mass media are now directly addressing, discrediting and ridiculing “conspiracy theories” (I hate that term) in order to make sure that people do not start thinking too much about the strange things they are witnessing on TV. Media coverage of Sandy Hook also followed that trend as several TV personalities went on air to “debunk” the theories. Fortunately for the powers that be, most people still teared up when they saw the Sandy Hook chorus standing in the middle of the SuperDome, singing about how America is beautiful. Yes, America is beautiful, but the elite that run it, and who exploit people’s lives and emotions to push their own Agenda, is most definitely not.

Oh yeah, and the Ravens won the game.

No link to Beyonce’s electric Super Bowl XLVII show and power outage: Superdome official

The halftime show ran on its own power and had nothing to do with the main stadium grid.

Singer Beyonce’s shows was run on its own power at Super Bowl XLVII. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says that “there is no indication at all” that the show and the outage are linked.

Beyonce was electric … but she wasn’t hot enough to turn the lights off at the Super Bowl.

According to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, “there is no indication at all” that Sunday’s 34-minute power outage that disrupted Super Bowl XLVII had anything to do with Beyonce’s sizzling halftime show.

Goodell’s denials that the halftime show triggered the outage didn’t stop speculation that the massive show had something to do with the blackout. Boomer Esiason, for instance, said on WFAN that he was told that Beyonce had caused two Superdome power outages during rehearsals.

“The interesting thing is, about five or six minutes prior to I guess the breaker going, where our radio booth was up on the seventh floor, we were almost at the ceiling of the dome, and Kevin (Harlan, the play-by-play man) says to me, ‘Man, do you hear that buzzing?’




Beyonce performs during the Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show at the Superdome. Her performance was electric, but had nothing to do with the outage, says Doug Thornton of SMG Management Company, which manages the Superdome.

“And I took my headset off and there was this like electrical buzz sound coming from the ceiling. This was after halftime, it was after Beyonce. And by the way, Beyonce blew the electric in the Superdome twice, I’m told, during her rehearsals during the week.”

According to Doug Thornton of SMG Management Company, which manages the Superdome, the halftime show was on a separate generator and was not drawing power from the stadium’s resources.

Thornton, speaking at a press conference with Goodell Monday morning, said the amperage actually went down during the halftime show because the lights had been lowered and that the juice for the show came from a separate generator.

Authorities were still trying to determine exactly what went wrong.

The sudden power outage that lasted 34 minutes in the second half during Super Bowl XLVII between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers.

“The halftime show was run on 100% generated power,” Thornton said. “It was not on our power grid at all … All we know is we had an interruption in service.

“We’re going to get to the bottom of it,” Thornton added. “We know that the interruption in service … there was a piece of equipment that did its job. It sensed an abnormality in their substation and it shunted the power to the Superdome. We don’t know anything beyond that. So it’s premature at this point to say what it was or what caused it.”

While SMG and Entergy — the power company that supplies electricity to the Superdome — began their search for answers, the NFL tried its best on Monday to divert attention from the Super disruption.

Goodell called the blackout “an unfortunate incident,” while Eric Grubman, the NFL’s executive vice president of business ventures, insisted the blackout “looms actually pretty small in the grand scheme of things.”

The lights were out at the Superdome after a sudden power outage.

Both insisted the outage wouldn’t affect the chances of New Orleans hosting another Super Bowl in the future, nor would it detract from what Goodell said “will be remembered as one of the greatest Super Bowl weeks.

“I fully expect we’ll be back here for a Super Bowl,” the commissioner said. “I hope we will be back. We want to be here.”

First, though, officials need to figure out what happened with 1:38 gone in the third quarter of Super Bowl XLVII, when all but a small bank of lights hanging from the ceiling suddenly went dark. Power was lost everywhere in the stadium, and the air conditioning stopped.

Thornton said he believed the “unfortunate circumstance” happened because of a malfunction in an electrical feeder system — which was upgraded as part of $336 million in renovations the 38-year-old building has undergone since Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005.

Colin Kaepernick #7, Frank Gore #21, and head coach Jim Harbaugh of the San Francisco 49ers wait on the field during the power outage that occured in the third quarter of Super Bowl XLVII.

According to a joint statement issued by SMG and Entergy, when a computerized monitor sensed an abnormality in the system, it shut the power down and the backup generators switched on.

Goodell also said there were no safety issues and only one minor injury, which occurred when an escalator stopped short as the power went out.

The long delay, Thornton said, was because the complicated electrical system in the building needed time to “reenergize.”

When the blackout occurred, Goodell was sitting in his luxury box with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, whose state will play host to Super Bowl XLVIII at the Meadowlands next year.
