Well, in my humble opinion, the terminology or idiom is "To put a gun to the head", meaning to blackmail or threaten a person to force them to do something, or to provoke a confession. It's interesting you mention JFK, two speeches got him killed. These days, if you run for President and win the "selection", upon your first day in the White House, you are taken into a room by faceless men, shown the Zapruter footage (from a different angle) and asked if you have any further questions. I wouldn't be surprised if Trump underwent the same treatment, but he would take it as par for the course. Trump is probibly too megalomaniacal to let it bother him, his monumental ego, delusions of grandeur and obsession with power eclipses any threat to his well being, he also probibly believes he is protected by the secret service, but don't forget he is nothing more than a here today, gone tommorow "gofer". Truely the hidden hand are behind the Syrian attacks, again it's the "Hegelian Dialectic" or "Problem, Reaction, Sollution" in motion. A classic example of this is "911". Supposed terrorist hijackers crash into the World Trade Center, supposedly with Osama Bin Liner at the helm. The towers fall, thousands die, the world reacts, war breaks out. In this case, we see the first phaze, the "Problem", a supposed chemical attack by Assad on his own people, phaze 2, the "emotional reaction" of the general public, and phaze 3, the bombing of Syrian airbases in "retaliation", based on the excuse that there was a chemical attack by Assad on his own people but without any evidence to support it (Manufactured Terrorist Threat), thus offering the sollution to the problem that they covertly created. Demonising Assad to justify bombing and ground troops agains't him, it's the same old story, but make no mistake, these crazy people are not kidding around when it comes to nuclear war! All that is happening is a shuffle of the same cards in the hands of the Elites.One fatal move before they go in for the kill, just like a spider waits in the center of the web, then brutally attacks it's prey, spinning it into a cocoon, the centralization of power. Definately, Trump is being manipulated by his own authorities, but he is a full blown narcissistic psychopath anyway, the favored personality type of the illummati, they hand pick psychopaths to run in office, so in their twisted minds, Trump was the ideal candidate, the perfect lunatic who is not in his right mind to play war games with other mentally inbalanced dictators. Anyway, we all have ways of knowing things, VioletRay, but remember, what is true for you may vastly differ to that of your neighbour, just as this comment may not resonate with you. Stating you have "ways of knowing things" without any factual proof or evidence to back those claims is never going to make any waves, it never makes an impact, especially with truth seekers, much like certain other members who claim to be in contact with certain off world entities but without a shred of evidence to support it, people who make those kinds of claims generally alienate themselves, especially from those of us who seek truth based on logical observation and critical thinking, rooted in facts, not based on science fiction. There are facts, based on evidence, in other words "clear proof", then there is misinformation, lies, falsehoods, rumors, hearsay and gossip, but thanks for your opinion nonetheless. If it's true for you, then fine but unless you can provide undeniable proof of a claim, it only fades away because it dosen't carry any weight, it dissapears if it's not grounded in reality, it's just whatever is in a persons own head. There are countless people in new age communities claiming the validitiy of this, that and the other, "Nesara" is a perfect example, or that a mass UFO landing is "imminent" etc, but there is no proof in the pudding, only their "way of knowing things" which may be factual to them but can be bullsh!t to others. True, some of us understand things about infinite conciousness and the multidimensional nature of the human spirit, we feel it in our hearts because we understand vibration, frequency and that there is a whole lot more going on then we were taught in school, we study the fractal nature of a flower and we can prove it, but making a claim based purely on a guess is only valid for the one who is doing the guessing. You can never convince an atheist of the existence of God and vice versa, My perspective could contain certain understandings, but my neighbour may have other ideas, then again her son may have all the answers based on his way of knowing things, his girlfriend may tend to differ, and so on. Anyway, who cares, thank you nevertheless, I appreciate your input, make what you will of my own perspective for it matters not to I, I respect your opinions, even though I may not resonate with all of them, but no love lost, we're still family, we still love one another. In conclusion, nobody really knows anything, if people can grasp that, it makes them pretty damn smart! Terence McKenna nailed it when he brilliantly observed:
"The great evil, in my humble opinion, which haunts our enterprise, and I say this realizing I'm setting the fox among the chickens... The great evil that has been allowed to flourish in the absence of mathematical understanding is relativism. And what is relativism? It's the idea that there is no distinction between sh!t and Shinola, that all ideas are somehow operating on equal footing. So one person is a Chaos Theorist, another is a follower of the revelations of this or that New Age guru, someone else is channelling information from the Pleiades, and we have been taught that political correctness demands that we treat all these things with equal weight. Because we have no mathematical ability, no logical ability, we don't know how to ask the questions that expose some positions as preposterous, trivial, insulting to the intelligence, and unworthy of repetition. We all are very comfortable bashing science and flailing away at that, but that isn't our enemy. Science is capable of undertaking its own reformation and critique, and has been engaged in that fairly vigorously for some time. The enemy that will really subvert the enterprise of building a world based on clarity is the belief that we cannot point out the pernicious forms of idiocy that flourish in our own community."
Stick, I appreciate that very, very much, I never really know how my words come accross, so it's a privilage for me to know that it reaches like minded souls, I am very grateful to you and if I may say, to read your own words which are always filled with never endng devine truth, powerfull spiritual insights and infinite wisdom, I wish I could write half as clear, as intelegently and as eloquently as you do, so thank you my friend... as the flowering of conciousness arises in all, flourishing amidst the mass confusion of still many slumbering souls, it's often the whispering, heartfelt acknowledgements that make all the difference, and so it is I who is also humbled, my brother. The battle for truth, light and devine understanding.. moves ever onwards!
