NB Commentary: Excellent article. Excellent!!!
I would add that it ain’t just black folks that only need tokens to feel they have got it all. The people overall have been manipulated, socially engineered, mind controlled, etc., into believing the little trinkets, drips and drops they get is the whole thing, to means they are cared for, or even needed. BEYONCÉ is just a symptom of a bigger anomaly that has overcome the masses. The “Cult Of Personality”.
She like her cohorts are the modern day Gods, and like the Gods of old, they only promise and promise and promise and threaten of course. But they are displaced authority, enchanted illusions, distorted creations of the human psyche. They are not real. So anything that she says as it relates to Black Empowerment has absolutely nothing to do with Black Empowerment or she would give more than a trinket to acknowledge Black Folks.
They keep saying that the masses are waking up, but it seems they are working feverishly to keep the folks’ finger on the snooze button.
Beyoncé- A Win for White Supremacy
Following her Grammy speech and performance, superstar Beyonce garnered abundant praise. Beyonce’s grammy performance portrayed Queen Bey in a manner that proved as royal as her title. Beyonce’s look seemed reminiscent of the queens of our indigenous homeland— a connection that did not go unnoticed by spectators. However, Beyonce garnered the most praise for something fans are not used to associating with Beyonce—loss.
Beyonce lost to Adele in the “Album of the Year” category. To most, this loss was inevitable due to a racially aware stance accompanying some tracks in her latest studio album Lemonade. Lemonade presented the contemporary world with all that has come to associate with Beyonce while intertwining a “woke” perspective not commonly aligned with the singer. The visual album featured the mothers of slain teens Trayvon Martin and Mike Brown and songs like “Freedom” that sought to paint Beyonce as an ally to the black collective in our time of turbulence. For these reasons, many regard Beyonce’s loss as a win. This is certainly the stance of Myles E. Johnson, author of popular New York Times article “What Beyonce Won Was Bigger than a Grammy.” The article referenced the price blacks who dare to exist outside the parameters of white conventionality pay as being overlooked if not ignored in terms of acknowledgment. For this assertion, Johnson is completely correct. However, does a few tracks on an album largely about relationships, infidelity, and love, place Beyonce in the same category of black activists like Assata Shakur, Angela Davis or singer-activists Nina Simone who unapologetically dedicated themselves to the plight of blackness in America?
Of course not.
If you can control a man’s thinking you do not have to worry about his action. When you determine what a man shall think you do not have to concern yourself about what he will do. If you make a man feel that he is inferior, you do not have to compel him to accept an inferior status, for he will seek it himself. If you make a man think that he is justly an outcast, you do not have to order him to the back door. He will go without being told; and if there is no back door, his very nature will demand one.

The Occult Cult of Celebrity and the Erosion of the Self.
The cult of celebrity is no different from the multifarious ancient cults of Gods, goddesses and mortals mixed up, often with fatal results, in the general spiritual hierarchy of the ancient world. http://www.truthspoon.com/2015/09/the-occult-cult-of-celebrity-and.html
Remember, Abraham who was told by his God to sacrifice his son to prove his faithfulness? That was not unusual for that to happen. Human sacrifice was not rare. They say Yeshuwa was the last “human sacrifice” and yet people eat his body and drink his blood, every Sunday. Think about that.
John A. Keel points out that historical records say the priests claimed to have the ability to communicate with other-dimensional beings, and that the kings and emperors, including people like Julius Caesar and Napoleon, met with strange beings who materialized and dematerialized. The same goes with today’s leaders who consult their other-dimensional demonic masters. Keel details the literature on secret societies that describes many materializations of fearsome demons, which gave out orders and directed their followers to commit murder or political manipulation. Those who disobeyed would be killed by the entity or fellow members.
NB Commentary: By now it is clear that the so called 1st Amendment is in grave jeopardy. Not like it wasn’t before but it has become blatantly apparent that it is seriously going down hill a thousand miles an hour.
With the President weighing in on the threat of “Fake News” sites being an affront to Democracy, these wondrous outlets are browning their noses to keep in the good favors of the establishment while corporate media loses its grip on mass consumption. Day by day, little by little, sites are going down, one by one. And we thought the UN take over of the Internet was bad. We never guessed, or did we, that our favorite social media sites would turn us over to the Big Guys and shut us down.
As we all know, The New York Times is liberal propane a tool and today’s article calling VC’s article “fake news” is a perfect example of how the perverse elite network of child pedos will present a united front to discredit any effort that blows the whistle and publicizes their debauchary. This is what the owner of Comet Ping Pong meant when he arrogantly stated he wasn’t worried about anything because he has “community support” and is protected from the blowback. They have created this new topic “fake news” and included all real whistle blower efforts under this moniker to fool the masses who are still asleep. But those of us who are Awake know there is nothing fake about the numerous missing children and testimonies and allegations of children who say they have been mercilessly exploited by a network of powerful military, government, celebrity and wealthy elites.

NB COMMENTARY: There’s a rumor going around that Barack Hussein Obama may be elected into the Office of Secretary General come this December, 2016.
Now wouldn’t having Obama as Secretary General of the UN, just bust a lot of buttons??!!
Obama would be the perfect choice, as he is most in alignment with the type of puppet they need. But wouldn’t that be some history right there, the 1st Black President, and the first African American to be Secretary General of the UN!!!
OMG, I see stars, I see fireworks, I see no fly zones all over the planet, and I see drones.
Quiet as it’s kept he was allowed to preside over the security counsel which was unprecedented. Quiet as it’s kept the US has an overriding veto in the UN. And even more quiet is the fact that these folks do whatever they want to do. So if they decide that this is what they want, who cares about rules, laws, protocols. They are all made just to be revised and at the behest of the revisionists who spring up amongst us from time to time.
With Obama as Secretary General of the UN, the most lauded President in US history, the pronounced Global citizen, the man who literally stated at his last speech at the UN that a new day and a New World was in order to the cheers of all the straw voters. What’s to stop them? Everybody would just roll over and support the rolling out of the New World Order, hands down. Imagine, he will be able to sanction all his unsanctionable deeds. His predecessors, Kofi Anan, there during the kidnapping of Aristide from Haiti.. Moon, watching Libya burn.. would pale in the face of Mr. Drone Master as he rules the skies.
Now wouldn’t having Obama as Secretary General of the UN, just bust a lot of buttons??!!
We are in for a roller coaster ride.
by BILL BLUNDEN
A few days ago both the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal cited anonymous officials who claimed that North Korea was responsible for the recent cyberattack on Sony. These agenda-setting elements of the press conveyed the information without question, despite the fact that the evidence provided has been (as journalist Kim Zetter put it) flimsy. Contemplating the corresponding headlines is instructive.
As I wrote in the Times back in September of 2014, sophisticated anti-forensic technology is actively being developed by both American intelligence services and private sector companies. To think that other countries aren’t doing the same is naive. False flag attacks are standard spy tradecraft.
Furthermore high ranking, ostensibly credible, national security officers like Keith Alexander, James Clapper, and John Brennan have demonstrated the tendency to lie to the American public. Not small innocent lies but rather colossal brazen lies. Lies regarding essential constitutional rights. Why, pray tell, should we trust what we’ve been told by officials?
Your author contacted Zetter to offer the proverbial high-five and she voiced her frustration about the utter lack of skepticism by reporters like Sanger and Perlroth. Blind acceptance is part of the miracle of modern propaganda. As Noam Chomsky and Edward Herman described in their classic text Manufacturing Consent the large multinational corporations that constitute the mainstream press are able to frame debate and control the acceptable boundaries of public discourse by leveraging an apparatus which burns through literally hundreds of billions of dollars each year.
Of course this isn’t the only instance in which the stalwarts of the corporate media have botched their job as society’s watchdogs. Anyone following what’s happening over in Ukraine will also notice an astounding groupthink on behalf of the press corp. What’s painted as Russian expansion is really a NATO expansion. Putin is responding to Western incursion. Even an establishment figure like Henry Kissinger admits as much (and when a guy like Kissinger starts making sense it’s a sign that something is seriously amiss).
All of this underscores the role of modern propaganda as an incredible tool of social control, a textbook application of the science of coercion. The public is so distracted with celebrity gossip, mindless entertainment, wildly inflated alleged national security threats, and empty consumption that they fail to recognize the unraveling of our social fabric. Officials hyperventilate over an obscure contingent of jihadists while disregarding far greater, but less spectacular, threats.
Sadly the countervailing ideologies and organizations that served to keep capitalism in check in the aftermath of World War II have dwindled. Hence the plutocrats who funded the neoliberal revolution have a captive audience and they’re free to kick and beat the rest of us with relative impunity, while sanctioned policies like Quantitative Easing and offshoring allow them to swallow up nearly all economic gains.
And to think that former NSA director Keith Alexander had the audacity to claim that Chinese cyber espionage entailed the greatest transfer of wealth in history? Never mind the trillions spent on the self-perpetuating military conflict in the Middle East.
As inequality grows and the global climate becomes less habitable, the immiseration of the average Joe will inevitably lead to mobilization. The ruling class is well aware of what happened to French aristocrats in the eighteenth century. To save themselves from a similar fate they will switch the cogs of the Mighty Wurlitzer into high gear to give voice to popular discontent and subsequently co-opt emerging movements. That’s how fascism normally works. Mass interception will also be employed to identify activists and independent thinkers who see through the deluge of clever propaganda. Likewise a militarized police force guided by programs like Garden Plot will be waiting in the wings as a last resort.
When this juncture is reached, where a critical mass of people are angry enough to take action, the likelihood of a positive outcome will depend in part upon people acquiring access to alternative sources of accurate information. In this way organizations can foster accountability and properly apply the sustained pressure necessary to alter large systems. Looking out over a media landscape flooded by corporate money and an endless series of murky deep-pocketed foundations, a modest reader–funded outfit in Petrolia, California, is an encouraging sign: Season’s Greetings CounterPunch.
