For those interested in Jade Helm and have an open mind, Steve Quayle will be on Coast to Coast am Tuesday night talking about what he sees coming from this "experiment". He also has a website SteveQuayle.com.

Several Wrong Planetians listen to Coast to Coast AM Radio.

They do find it entertaining though as-if though the man were a satirist.

This might be an easier-to-understand example of a parody/satire...


That was a cute video.

This guy was so subtle and had all the tropes that Poe's Law was in full effect for me. I honestly wasn't sure (earlier in the thread) until he made it more obvious by going so far over the top and then putting clues in his About page in case people still didn't get it.

I googled a bit to see if I could find out something about the real guy behind the videos and found this:

http://happyplace.someecards.com/videos/this-guys-jade-helm-satire-video-for-his-friends-went-viral-among-the-gullible-and-people-who-got-it-alike/

Quote:
Kris Martin, a nursing student and former Army medic residing in San Angelo, TX, accidentally trolled the living crap out of them (while delighting everyone else) with his intentionally stupid but wildly popular video "proving" ninja soldiers are coming for us.
"At first I thought it was just gonna be a funny thing to amuse five of my friends on my Facebook page," Martin told Texas Monthly, “We'd just have a little giggle, but it's been amazing to me that it's blown up into what it is. I'm having fun with it."
Indeed he is. The comments on the first video fell into three categories: people who earnestly believed him, people who called him an idiot because they didn't believe in Jade Helm thought he did (this was the largest group, btw), and people who got it. Check up his follow-up video, where he really gets creative with the folks who believe him (and those who just like his humor):


When I checked out his follow up video is when I finally got that he was joking. Kudos to him.

This is a better explanation. Please watch and I'd appreciate any input. Thank you.

It looks like he buys into conspiracy theories because they are much easier to understand than the brain-hurting complexity of global economics (which I don't understand either). On the one hand, he keeps saying "scary" while spinning a scary narrative. On the other hand, when you spin your own narrative (or adapt other peoples') it is actually less scary because you get to be in charge of the narrative.

The world isn't static. Trying to get a handle on the immense social,economic and political forces affecting the world is difficult. There is comfort in a narrative,however scary.

But it isn't plausible.

I wonder of Glenn Beck is the inspiration for Kris Martin's satirical chalkboard antics?

Said explanation doesn't really seem very well-organsed. The map is also... well... that map.

Something like this might be a better description.

Also, I have PERSONALLY experienced & witnessed the corruption that is the Court-Systems, and have even asked the Jailers themselves, and even Jailers agree that the Courts are Corrupt !

This is regarding the collapse of the economy. Expected to be worse than The Great Depression. Read what happened in Cypress. Greece falling is the start of the domino effect that will lead to this.

Of course, we all know the only people that exist in Texas are Steers and Queers (at least to a former boss I had while I still worked for Pizza Hut). :skull:

If you don't understand global economics (I sure as hell don't), that what do you make of the current advertisements being run on TV right with Ron Paul predicting gloom and doom and the inevitable collapse of the U.S. Economy? Personally, if you look at who is actually running the ad, you'll find out that Porter Stansbury, of Baltimore-based Stansbury Research is behind this. If you look further at Porter Stansbury, he is a charlatan, and a convicted felon. I trust him less than I trust the government economists.

Anonymous Can be Anybody & Everybody. Many Anonymous Value our Freedoms & That of Which Benefits the Public (and Thus We Are Frequently or Perhaps Even Always Opposed to Corruption That Impoverishes the Population).

Anybody who doesn't know by now that America has already become mostly a Police-State has their heads not only buried deep in the sand but also shoved far up their own asses & has probably never done any real work within their lives that makes any actual contribution into actual economic-activity (see the writings of EBTX regarding False-Labour).

This is the person who will be controlling your One World Order.



Goodnight and sweet dreams.

Beck doesn't even go into how any of this is suppose to transpire. He does a lot of talking about alliances and carves up the world map by placing his colored dots all over it but never gets around to how any of his rhetoric leads to this "new world order".

One problem I also have with his theory is this.

I see Russia and China making some nice gains in territory, but somehow the U.S. loses ground. If the U.S. is a part of this operation then where the hell is our cut in this deal?

I used to like RP. then I found out that he's hitched his cart to Stansbury. I can't imagine why he'd do that, he's no dummy and should know to stay away from Stansbury. I guess it's the same problem that led Robert Kiyosaki to gut his credibility (what he had of it) by selling Rich Dad Seminars to Russ Whitney, a con artist who threatens to sue anybody who talks smack about him, and whose "seminars" are basically just upselling the marks to ever more expensive seminars, with the promise that the NEXT ONE UP holds the secret to wealth.

Fortunately wealth cons have largely gone away, now the big thing is doom and gloom cons, with people saying that the economic collapse is right around the corner, and to prepare by fleeing the city for a homestead in the woods. The same ideas have been around the far right since the 70s. The basic conspiracy theories-FEMA camps, hyperinflation, "red lists" of dissidents who will be wiped out, stuff like that-also has its roots in 70s survivalism.

Somebody "purged" the wikipedia article on the 70s back to the land movement, but before that happened the page detailed how people who relied on income from homesteading activities like selling eggs eventually lost their land and went back to the city, while the few people who were able to make it work relied on practicing a trade in a nearby town.

Glenn Beck has made survivalist doomerism mainstream, along with typical pitches for gold, gear, and unmilled wheat.
