The Turn on Ukraine and the UnReality Paradox
It’s easy to forget that, for most of us in this awakening, questioning community, the very concept of Information Warfare, PsyOps and Fifth-Generation Tactics—concepts we discuss with frequency and increasing mastery as we continue to forge this decentralized collective into the most powerful intel apparatus in history—is still new to most.
And yet, the very fact that we are aware that these tactics—these campaigns launched by the largest and most complex criminal empire ever codified—have been and are being deployed both against and for the peoples of the world puts us in rarified air compared to our sleeping brothers and sisters, who believe that they CAN believe not only what they see, but even what they’re told about the world around them, and even of the world as it’s described to them in the mires of the Donbas half a world away.
It may seem reductive to say that knowing is half the battle when it comes to Information Warfare, but it’s actually much more powerful than that, for how can one even begin to fight, or begin to arm oneself with the psychological, cognitive and even spiritual tools with which to fight without that baseline knowledge?
And so, we are aware that we are in a war, and not just one for the Collective Mind of American—and world—society, but also for its mandate, its sovereign will and the will of all free and would-be free souls. We are in THE war that puts all other wars to shame, not because it is grander or more violent, deadlier or more dramatic, but rather because it is the war of all wars, the war all wars have been leading to and have been a part of.
Because it is the war for peace.
Whether you first engaged with the Info War consciously as a result of the paradigm-shattering arrival of Donald Trump onto the sociopolitical scene, were piqued and prodded by the Q Op and other patriot-engineered info dissemination programs, or whether the Deep State themselves accidentally terrorized you, angered you … provoked you into the search for the right questions to answers you could not have imagined, the very act of attempting discernment makes each and every one of you—of us—Infinite Players in what will ultimately prove to be a Finite Game.
Perhaps one oversight we make—and I am as guilty of it as any—when it comes to the engagement with the Info War and the War of Stories, however, is the assumption that, while each side on the Game Board is made up of various factions—Micros within vast, coordinated Macros—said factions tend to push in the same direction.
That said, as is the case in any war—particularly Info Wars—sometimes factions turn in on themselves, and sometimes a Macro is only as unified as momentum and the illusion of control allows it to be. While this affliction can and likely does affect both patriots in the Sovereign Alliance whose goals we attempt to track AND the Deep State’s subversive System of Systems we try to catalogue and map, I believe that, since the latter side occupies the Finite role—owing to their attempt to obfuscate and hide the truth rather than revealing that which is inherent and self-defined—they are much more likely to engage in this self-immolating behavior, with all the best laid plans undone more so by their own hubris, paranoia and engineered panic than by the final springing of traps patriots have lying in wait for any of those who make it toward the endgame.
Very recently in these pages, I outlined what I feel is one of the most powerful tools we might employ in order to discern when this self-destructive or canabalistic pattern is emerging within the enemy System; this cognitive cypher, Overton’s Goalpost, lays out a progression that seeks to track enemy Narrative regression (the irony is delicious, right?) so that we might not only see Narrative turns in progress, but also project those to come, and the Actuals that might follow them.
From the Biden Crime Family to COVID-23 and the second chance at a last impression, which we’ll dive deeper into next week, Overton’s Goalpost isn’t a pattern associated with the Infinite Side—and thus, the ‘winning’ side—on the Game Board, but rather one that has been driven at least temporarily from psychological ground they once held in the Collective Mind.
The reaction to this piece blew me away, and brought a lot of new eyes to this publication (welcome!) and was not only my attempt to apply patterns to those whose very existence has relied upon the tenets of deception and obfuscation so that we might better see the dark ones huddled and working in the dark, but so that we might see the distant rays of light the truth of winning represents far before we crest the final rise that will afford us the view of a new world I believe we’ll have stepped into long before we recognize the passing of the threshold.
In short, Overton’s Goalpost was and is an attempt to map the once-subtle, but increasingly direct Narrative Convergences of the enemy’s interlocking—and now competing—stories en route to a Crisis Cascade of Narrative Whiplashes, each of which play a pivotal role in shattering Micro (individual) paradigms by knocking down cognitive dissonance walls so that we might etch splintered lines into the Macro—the illusory paradigm or, ascalls it, the False Reality.
(How’s that paragraph for BB terminology?!)
More so than training the advanced pattern recognition some seem to have been born with, or else had awakened within them due to the ‘events’ or stories of the last decade, Overton’s Goalpost’s primary goal was to provoke and encourage the ability to see the wins within the myriad perceived losses that dominate the Info War.
Last week, we put together short-form versions of this concept, applying the quick-hit cypher to the Biden Crime Family Narrative Convergences/Retreat, as well as the Ukraine vs. Russia conflict. Today, I want to dive into the latter in a bit more detail in light of recent … deployments disguised as developments.
Instead of focusing in on the Cypher pattern (Deny > Diminish > Qualify > Distract > Admit,) zooming out by focusing on the confluence of all of the above allows us to see just how big a Prussian Pickle the powers that would be seem to have got themselves tangled up in in full view of the Collective Mind not just of the American people, but of the slow-waking world as well.
And what sort of confluence and convergence have we seen in the lands once called Prussia of late?
From the much-promoted and now much-maligned, ‘failed’ counter-offensive in the Donbas to the ghosts of the Baltic ballet that has been the Narrative War surrounding Nord Stream 2, the curious case of the Kahkovka Dam to the twin strikes on the Crimean Bridge, and now, to the vast mystery of the ‘vanishing billions’ in western ‘aid’ from Ukrainian coffers—or did it ever arrive?—and the arrest of the very oligarch who installed the Prussian Prince himself into his false throne, the Gordian knot that is the story of Ukraine is threatening to unveil a keystone of truth that could start the whole Forever War paradigm crashing down onto its splintered pillars.
And before the Media Industrial Complex in the western hegemony began inching their way into a slow, pregnant and too-late turn on their prized proxy, they first attempted to draw a line of demarcation between the escalation of that hegemony—of that grand, corrupt collective—and the Russian Federation and the rising Sovereign powers in the reforged global south and east by highlighting the renewed and ratcheting strikes—from the kinetic to the psychological—of the ‘innocent’ unto the tyrannical … or was it the other way around?
Recently, publications from the Washington Post to the Economist have got in on the action, promoting—and what a strange word for it—the Ukrainian drone strikes on the Russian Federation and not only seemingly celebrating such wonton death and destruction they ostensibly stood opposed to just one year ago, but adding in some rare Fifth-Generation Warfare terminology by acknowledging that Ukraine herself is waging psychological warfare on the people of Russia, and by extension, the peoples of the world.
While these sorts of deployments may seem negative or Hegelian at first glance—the enemy coding the deployment of PsyOps into the Collective Mind as a ‘good’ thing—it still represents Narrative retreat on the psychological battlefield, as the enemy has now been forced into the definition of core tenets of their Hegelian strategies they would otherwise have liked to avoid, even if the framing still leaves much to be desired in relation to the foundational truths at the heart of the conflict in and around the Donbas—one between the rising sovereign powers in the east and the demonic and hegemonic of the Globalist west.
For an example of this, look to the recent seeding of the very drone strikes Ukraine launched on Russia (or that CIA and intel proxies launched in their name) by the Baltic States and Poland, as the time between their troop movements on the borders of Belarus and the escalatory assault on the Russian Federation left no Narrative distance between the two within the Collective Mind; typically, such movements and posturing on the part of the Baltics could have been framed as preparatory, but in light of the drone strikes launched VERY close to such posturing, both Actually and Narratively, even the slowly-waking Collective Mind is beginning to wonder who the true baddies are in this conflict, which shows no signs of abating.
Similarly, the German publication Spiegel recently ran an in-depth piece concerning the ‘truth’ of the Nord Stream 2 sabotage as they would like their readers to absorb it, and the story—no matter which side of Reality it falls on—also represents Narrative retreat in its direct framing of Ukraine—the Proxy for NATO itself—as the prime culprit behind the most escalatory deployment to this point in what we are told could be the precursor to World War 3.
This story is literred with hints of both Patriot Ghosts within the media machine AND Deep State, Hegelian Ghouls, as the former—in my estimation—have successfully guided the latter into a series of grudging exposures of their own factions on the 5GW battlefield.
To wit, while it’s still very likely a lie that Ukrainian operators planned and carried out such an intricate and False Flagian attack on German energy infrastructure without the direct knowledge and coordination of the German government and the clandestine arm of the US Deep State (ie: the CIA,) the only choice these Ghouls had to them over the course of the last few weeks has been to distance the core pillars of their System of Systems from the proxy state that could and IS exposing it all.
Even the very framing within the Spiegel piece characterized the ‘exposures’ within its pages as being akin to a complex spy thriller, as the puppet masters admit their fictionalized retellings of escalatory events are just that, while patriots in the Sovereign Alliance continue to expose them by allowing them to expose themselves.
In essence, they’ve waited far too long to cut the strings that lead from the twitching fly back to the spider’s web, and the Anonymous ants are marching, and can’t be stopped or even slowed, only temporarily redirected.
This pattern of Narrative Convergence can be seen in all theaters of the Info War.
On our side, we might see patterns of convergence between Donald Trump, Elon Musk and RFK Jr. as they divide and conquer in the (totally not) coordinated exposure of the Media Industrial Complex and weaponized DOJ. But on the enemy side of the board, we see an inverse convergence taking place, as their own retreat and admissions shed light onto core truths of the mechanisms and structure of the System of Systems they wish to remain buried.
And make no mistake, a deployment like the Spiegel piece doesn’t JUST lend credence to arguments this community has laid out for months regarding Ukraine as a proxy state, but also exposes connections between it and the CIA, western intel agencies, NATO escalation, energy dependence and the concepts of False Flags and Proxy Wars, which have been actioned against the worldwide population for decades, stretching back to Vietnam and even Pearl Harbor.
No matter which way the Western Media Industrial Complex attempts to frame the Nord Stream 2 Op and any of those that have spun out from it, they’re being forced to choose between the exposure of their own clandestine enforcement arms, Military Industrial Complexes and the most valuable—and by extension—damning Proxy State on the game board … the one they could NEVER afford to lose, and the one Vladimir Putin is ripping from their grasp and holding aloft for the world to see, no matter what they think of him and his reforged and reformed Orthodox Christian Empire.
Herein, we might see why some of us weren’t just okay with the early framing of Ukraine as the Luke Skywalker in comparison to Putin’s Darth Vader due to our ability to peer through the utter absurdity of the lie on display, but rather due to our faith—logic-bound and codified—that the more dramatic and false the Narrative Deployment, the more psychologically violent, and thus, cathartic and freeing, the Narrative Whiplash to come, and we’re only at the beginning stages of that whiplash, which doesn’t just expose Ukraine, but the underlying structure of the System that gave birth to it in the first place, the system all sovereigns MUST recognize in order to guide our world into a more sovereign future.
And of course, ALL of this escalation and exposure is occurring while Donald Trump, the only world leader calling for peace on behalf of the global west is hunted by the very apparatus he so recently led.
This pattern of Narrative retreat and distancing by the powers that would be and the Prussian Proxy are indicative of the underlying fear the Deep State has of what could and would happen should the pendulum swing all the way back in their direction, which is why the ‘turn’ they are beginning to effect on Ukraine in the public mind is as hollow as it is halting, akin to turning the game board over rather than playing it out to its logical—and, for them, morbid—conclusion.
A popular refrain in the infamous Q drops asks, “Who knows where the bodies are buried?”
A good number of patriots in the know likely do. But you know who the enemy KNOWS has the full picture? Their own members. Their own scions. Most of all, their own puppets and proxies. Puppets whose strings have been cut, or else tied to the fingers of new puppeteers whose aims we might better align with.
After all, we’ve been told we’re going to like how this movie ends, we’ve been told there will come a time when we’ve grown tired, exhausted by winning … and not by a figure known for lying.
So, while we may be entering the beginnings of fall, we might see that the leaves aren’t the only things turning.
There's an obsession in segments of the Truth Community when it comes to assigning colored hats to public figures, especially 'world leaders,' and we've all been guilty of it.
That said, it's important to engage with the idea that 'bad' actors (literally) can be forwarding patriot objectives through a mix of direct leverage and Game Theory.
Strings can be cut, and new strings can be tied.
Leverage goes both ways, which means control goes both ways.
When it comes to Zelensky, I'm not the only one in my circles that has posited that the Ukrainian Proxy President has been working on behalf of or directly for Sovereign Alliance patriots for some time, stretching all the way back to the beginning of Russia's Special MIL operation in the 'nation' that is a country in name only, but which has actually acted as a den of Deep State money laundering and influence peddling.
That seems absurd to many Truthers on its face; after all, hasn't Zelensky presided over what looks to be a globalist laundering scheme and led his people further into war against a federation they can't hope to beat in the field, while escalating rhetoric re: NATO, the EU and the US while ratcheting WW3 tensions?
Yes. Which might be quite by design.
After all, I believe this 'movie' ends with the story of the Peacemakers, primarily Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, with Xi Jinping playing a role. I have argued before that the leaders of the Sovereign Alliance (both public and operating in the shadows,) have been guiding the world through a narrative war for peace ... the War of Stories refrain I spend most of my time writing about.
Well, in order to get the public mandate for the Peacemakers, you first need the threat of war, and while the Deep State wanted a kinetic version of WW3 to kick off, and likely hoped to use Proxy Presidents like Zelensky and, before him, Kim Jong Un to forward these Actuals, we believe strings were cut with the latter, so why is it so hard to believe they might have been for the former?
As for the 'Actuals' we have to map onto this reading of Zelensky not as a 'white hat,' but rather as an actor on the world stage caught between the weakening collectivists who installed him and the growing, and increasingly-revealed sovereign powers rising in both the east and west:
Zelensky is a literal actor, made famous and funded by the very Deep State Oligarch his own DOJ arrested over the weekend in Ihor Kolomoyskyi. The first point implies that he was installed for optics, while the second point underlies the apparent reality that he's no longer marching to the beat of the same drum he was.
Zelensky has access to more blackmail/leverage material on the Biden Crime Family via Burisma (also connected to the corrupt keystone that is Kolomoyskyi,) than any leader in the world; MAGA has long argued this, but I believe this leverage is being used for us rather than for [them.]
Donald Trump routinely points to his 'perfect phone call' with Zelensky directly relating to the above. Did Trump offer Zelensky a deal? Did Zelensky accept?
When Putin first announced the Special MIL Operation, he claimed Russia's goal was to 'deNazify' Ukraine. Ostensibly, Zelensky has been standing in the way of that ... or has he? Instead of committing national troops, the Azov battalion (ALSO funded/formed by Kolomoyskyi,) has seen the bulk of action on the Ukraine side, with Wagner seeing it on the Russia side. The Net Effects of this strategy has seen the devastation of the Azov/Nazi battalion, and thus, there are fewer Nazis today than when the 'war' began.
Zelensky has not only exposed NATO encroachment and corruption, and exposed the concept of proxy states and proxy wars to western sleepers, but he has shone a spotlight on each by his increasingly-dramatic, increasingly-memetic 'stunts' in public meets with his would-be puppeteers.
As the reporting of Seymour Hersh has demonstrated, clandestine operations have been ramping up since fall 2022, from Nord Stream 2 to the Crimean Bridge, each of which has threads leading back to the CIA, with Ukraine proxies on the ground. Is all of this 'intel' coming from US contacts ... or is the CIA's cover being blown from inside of the Prussian machine?
The concept of an anti-corruption purge in and of itself is synonymous in recent years with similar purges conducted in China, Russia and Saudi Arabia, each of which I believe play a pivotal role in the emerging Sovereign Alliance. Isn't it interesting that Zelensky's own campaign is beginning to show teeth, and toward known Deep State figures?
In the end, it matters less what color hat Zelensky has on at any given time in the public narrative, and much more what the Net Effects of his political, narrative and legal deployments are.
If you believe he's been a Net Positive for [them,] then you haven't been paying attention.
Hell, they're about to start telling you as much themselves.
They already have, from vanishing billions to vanishing favors, ‘the turn’ on the Prussian Proxy has only just begun, and as usual, the Deep State’s Media Complex is on the backfoot, and behind the 8-ball.
Why, then is the Deep State so concerned with this pattern of Narrative retreat?
Is it simply because their Proxy State is being exposed? Can they not simply spin up another in a long line of false keystones of corrupt power projection?
Perhaps … and yet, the very thing they have accused the Russian Federation of approximating appears to be synonymous with the very truth of the factions they have funded, trained and defended in full view of the western public for close to a decade.
Why so serious?
Because as this pattern of Narrative retreat accelerates, and as Russia’s initial claims are proven apt one after another in the Info War, the story turns back around to that prime Ghoul in the Collective Mind stretching back to the last World War; the prime evil, as far as many are concerned.
Ukraine may be the keystone to the System of Systems on a functional level, but it’s also the keystone on a far more foundational and psychological level, as the time is rapidly approaching when Ukraine and its defenders and enablers will not simply be known as corrupt, but evil.
That’s the problem with harboring, training and funding Nazis. It just doesn’t play well in the end.
We may be a fair march yet from the first hints of winter’s icy touch, and have not the faintest inkling of what a new spring will look like, and yet, the illusion is beginning to melt away, and the warped, shimmering reflection of truth lies beneath it, waiting not to be held up and raised onto a pedestal, but rather uncovered. Revealed. Rescued from the depths of our former ignorance and arrogance married.
Nothing Can Stop What is Coming. But that doesn’t mean they won’t try.
Scared things are stupid things, and there are a lot of scared things in the System of Systems of late.
When tracking all of the various Narratives as they spin out and then back in in the Info War, we are reminded of the Unreality Paradox, another cypher I’ve written about that seeks to codify the welcome observation that deployments of the false and fictional can and often do visit very real effects onto the Collective Mind, and by extension, onto observable reality, Actuals be damned.
Thus, in a war built on the obfuscation and corruption of information itself, sussing out what’s real is of lesser importance than sussing out how falsity is influencing the Realm of the Real.
Put another way, it is of far lesser importance WHY something is true than THAT something is true.
As my friend and peerrecently said, we’re watching a ‘Real Story’ play out in front of the Collective Mind, which is about as perfect a paradox as we can get to sum up the Info War, which is really a War of Stories.
Good thing we have better writers.
