How Popular Music’s Lyrics Perpetuate American Idiocy

22nd July 2016

By Claire Bernish

“Pop music in America right now is so superficial… there’s no substance at all. It’s devoid of any meaning. And I’m not just saying that as a 45-year old rock musician, I’m saying that as a human being. If the Number One song is about your butt, that’s a problem.” ~ Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters

A recent study served to confirm the patently obvious: song lyrics for the most popular genres of music are ridiculously obtuse — and getting worse over time. Though this might not be a revelation, the figures are distressing indicators of both an intellectually vapid societal and cultural future.

If you’ve already moved away from Billboard music, congratulations, you refuse to be insulted. But if you haven’t, or if you’re concerned about pop culture trends acting as portents of systemic dysfunction, you should probably pay attention.

Facts that should have been front-page news everywhere somehow got buried among the “official narrative” we were given about the Orlando shooting.

Judge Andrew Napolitano has told FOX News that an FBI transcript indicated that no one died until 05:13am Sunday morning, June 12th, when the police SWAT teams entered the building.

“Here’s what is news in the summary – nobody died until 05:13 in the morning, when the SWAT team entered. Prior to that no one had been killed. The 53 that were injured, and the 49 that were murdered all met their fates at the time of, and during, the police entry into the building,” Judge Napolitano said.

The Coming Revolution – A New Vibrational Reality

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration  – Nikola Tesla

Energy is a property of objects, which can be transferred to other objects or converted, but cannot be created or destroyed. Literally, everything in the known universe is energy in some form or another, whether it’s thoughts, emotions, actions or objects. The law of vibration states that all energy in the universe vibrates at a particular frequency, therefore it’s in a constant state of motion. The vibrational frequency directly determines the form in which the energy will take and according to the law of attraction, energy which vibrates at a particular frequency will attract other energies that vibrate at the same frequency. The question is, what vibrational frequency is society tuned to? Continue Reading – The Coming Revolution – A New Vibrational Reality

Censorship Still Rampant Around the World

20th June 2016

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

Censorship is still a big issue around the world. Censorship remains at high levels in many countries, despite the fact that we tend to think we live in a world without that much of it (at least in the supposedly “enlightened and developed West”).

Why are censorship levels so high? There can really only be one reason for it in the end: our so-called “authorities” are afraid of free thought, free speech and the free flow of information. Why? Because it would uncover their secrets, expose their corruption, contradict their fake narratives, dissolve mental structures and undo notions of citizen obedience and civic duty that have been drilled into us since birth, mainly through military- and Rockefeller-influenced education.

The Information Carousel to Nowheresville

By Zen Gardner

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

Have you ever felt like you’re in a wash-rinse-repeat cycle watching the news, not just mainstream but even alternative media? Much of it is just that, in effect, if it doesn’t draw actionable conclusions or serious elevation in thought and perception. If newly discovered or implicated avenues of personal as well as social expression aren’t pursued, what’s the purpose of pointing out the need for them?

Yes, information is crucial to awakening humanity from its disconnected slumber. But when the dots are connected and we realize we’re in a fabricated landscape of illusion, what then?

Internet Freedom? How Government Attempts to Subvert Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Press

One resists the invasion of armies; one does not resist the invasion of ideas. — Victor Marie Hugo (1802 – 1885), The History of a Crime

While sharp looking liars in suits transmit the state approved “news’’ readily packaged for public consumption, the American people are waking up to the televised lies and deception of the mainstream media. Recent attacks on the U.S. Constitution and thus on the people, have shaken many more minds out of the hypnotic trance perpetuated by the mainstream propaganda machine which falls apart when analyzed with the facts omitted from their scripts.

Why “Alternative” Media is the New Mainstream

By Ethan Indigo Smith

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

The revolution will not be brought to you by Xerox… There will be no highlights on the eleven o’clock news… The revolution will not be right back after a message… The revolution will not go better with Coke… Because the revolution will not be televised. ~ Gil Scott Heron

Let’s face it, the mainstream media, like CNN, Fox News etc. are great at reporting on the surface understandings of surface issues; car accidents and plane crashes, shootings and robberies; as well as reinforcing why our latest foreign war or domestic loss-of-rights is good/necessary/the only way to peace and security. But if you really want to investigate and comprehend what is actually going on in the world, and why, you have to go past the mainstream.

Just look at the countless global events being reported by the underground news and compare it to the selective, politically-biased fear-fare of the mainstream; there is little journalistic integrity on display in the mainstream media, just the regurgitation of B.S. And lots of it. Even the surface events reported in the mainstream are often filtered, distorted and even blatantly constructed by media corporations that conceal their corporate and political alliances behind the guise of “news”.

Black Magic: Satanists Rule the World, Not Politicians, Bankers or Military Heads

By Makia Freeman

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

“The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists.” ~ J. Edgar Hoover

Black magic is the force that rules the modern world, so it is the Satanic black magicians that constitute the true controllers of the world – at least in the human Earthly realm. The Satanic black magicians pull the strings, not politicians, corporate bosses, military heads, intelligence chiefs or even international bankers – although they also hold many of those roles.

The NWO (New World Order) elite fulfill a hidden role and an outer, more respectable public role. While many Satanic black magicians are also businessmen and bankers, their true ruling power comes from Satanism and the twisted use of humanity’s creative power (black magic), which they then use in their secular roles in society.

Oligarchical Collectivism: The Institutional “ism” That Threatens Our Very Biology

By Ethan Indigo Smith

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

“There will be no curiosity, no enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be destroyed. But always… there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.” ~ 1984, George Orwell

Capitalism, communism, socialism, fascism, imperialism, corporatism, authoritarianism, monarchism, postmodern colonialism, and whatever form of government “ism” you can imagine, all eventually degrade over time to become oligarchical collectivism — the kind of ism that benefits the powerful few at the expense of the powerless many.

America – The Great Illusion

By Tim Bryant

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

“Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” ~ Albert Einstein

Life is the greatest gift in the known universe. It is incredibly precious, vastly diverse in its scope, and without judgement or prejudice – it just happens. One does not have to possess any specific talent, live any particular lifestyle, or be any one particular person in order to enjoy its enormity. In fact, the profound beauty in life does not come through force or will, but instead through surrender to the natural flow.

However, today’s world has become increasingly complex. Social forces mold individuals into thinking, behaving, and believing in a way that benefits the consumer driven society; essentially telling the child, “you can be whatever you want to be as long as you do what you’re told”.

Mind Control, Subliminal Messages and the Brainwashing of America

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

“Is the purpose of the TV ad to make you an informed consumer?” asks Noam Chomsky. “The purpose of the ad is to delude and deceive you with imagery so you’ll be uninformed and make an irrational choice.” 

In October of 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a warning, advising that children under the age of two should not be exposed to television because it can lead to developmental disorders, delayed speech and sleep problems. Similar concerns have been raised regarding tablet use. Despite that, Media Watch founder Ann Simonton found that advertisers “start targeting children at 9 months. They’ve noted that, by two years old, they can achieve brand loyalty and recognition.” This is especially concerning when we take into account subliminal messaging is unregulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) not only in advertising, but television and film as well. The Internet has recently come under scrutiny too. We are basically being brainwashed as babies and it continues throughout our lives.

Add to this governmental propaganda and we would be hard-pressed to have an uninfluenced and unique thought about anything. And, sad to say, it has only become worse…

10 Signs You’ve Bought ‘Spin’

By Christina Lavers

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

We live in a world with an incredible imbalance of power. Whether you believe in ‘conspiracies’ or not, there is no doubt that a tiny fraction of the world population has the means to manipulate and sway public opinion in order to maintain a paradigm that promotes and maintains their ability to control and profit off the masses. Common sense would dictate that any group who had the wherewithal to successfully claw their way into a top position would naturally invest heavily in ensuring their interests were protected. As increasing corruption is exposed in so many areas of society, we would be naive to think collusion wasn’t happening at the highest levels as well.

For instance… Recently a German journalist, Udo Ulfkotte, came forward to expose how he and, according to his claims, many other journalists were coerced into not only slanting their stories in order to sway public opinion, but to sign their own names to articles that were written by CIA staff as a means to garner support for war. (see video.)
