The Lies of Empire
The Empire needs to tell lies. It needs to convince us that it is a force for good. That it protects civilization against the unruly hordes. That it spreads peace and harmony. As long as we support the narrative all is well. If we point out the duplicity we end up like Assange. Jonathan Cook has an interesting article: How we stay blind to the story of power. They want us to submit to their lies. It doesn’t matter if we believe them or not.
A blast from the past. I tweeted this in 2016, from Q&A. I’m sure Tony Jones got Christine Dolan on because she was ex-CNN and therefore “mainstream”, but they were all shocked when she went off the reservation to speak truth, in this instance about Obama’s role in #regimechange. https://t.co/3a6Q8DCR9l— Robert Barwick (@RobbieBarwick) February 26, 2020
The truth leaks out
The truth always leaks out. The Nobel Peace Prize winner Obama (and Israel) was behind the destabilization of the Middle East. Oh, how they love to rub our noses in it. The “Peace Prize” – “blessed are the peacemakers”. Well they are still bringing “peace” and “freedom” to the Middle East. This is why they are after Assange (from 2016):

All Empires pass away
The bible tells us that God raises up the basest of men to rule in the kingdoms of men. Never truer word was spoken. History tells us that all Empires pass away. They are destroyed by internal pressures. They are corroded by lies and corruption until they are too weak to resist outside threats. We have had our bread and circuses. The barbarians are at the door. We did this to ourselves.
