“Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight? That is something I ask all my prey.” Those are the haunting sentences uttered by Jack Nicholson by his movie persona as the Joker in the 1989 “Batman” movie just before killing his victims. It’s 24 years later and we’re not in fictional Gotham, but we are about to become the Joker’s real-life prey as the result of the unchecked mischief and outright criminality of multiple presidential administrations and decades of congressional bodies. The question is, will enough Americans awaken to the fact that we’re being lied to before we collectively feel and smell the hot, fetid breath of the Joker on the backs of our necks as those words are whispered? Will we awaken fast enough to take steps to prepare and “get out of the way” of what’s coming?
You must look at the bigger picture, soak in a view from space, to see that we are being led in a dance choreographed perhaps by the devil himself. As always, the devil can be found in the details, and amid the hypnotic melody of the orchestra under the pale moonlight. That enchanting melody is about to abruptly change to a crescendo as all elements of a perfect storm are now in place that will change our lives. It will not be the end of the world, but it will be the end of the world as we know it in terms of our lifestyles and the manner in which we are accustomed to living. Dramatic change for all of us is in the offing. We did not arrive at this moment in time by accident, although it is being made to appear that way. But you must remember, it was no accident.
Last summer of relative world peace?While most Americans are on mental hiatus and fully immersed in the dog days of summer, the war raging in Syria has taken an ominous turn and is escalating by the day. Nearly two million residents of Syria have been forced to flee their homes since the war began in March 2011. Just within the last five days, upwards of 40,000 refugees fled into Iraq from Syria. Over five-thousand men, women and children fled Syria yesterday alone, and the numbers are now climbing by the hour. Yet, the Western media remains silent on this consequence of Western intervention, while our political leaders from both sides of the ideological divide continue to push their psychotic agenda under the guise of installing democracy.
One must ask exactly what is taking place in Syria, a relatively stable country until the Obamas, Clintons and McCains of the world decided to push their agenda of change, that would cause normal, middle-class people and families to leave their homes and jobs to flee into war-torn Iraq? These refugees are not “street people,” or previously displaced and homeless families. No, they are the equivalent of our middle class, and they are running, not walking from their homes, taking only what they can carry and leaving all else behind.
