The Two Faces Of The US Empire

The Biden/Harris inauguration event is going to be a star-studded celebration spanning an unprecedented five days, a giddy orgy of excitement at a murderous oligarchic empire having a new face behind the front desk after promising wealthy donors that nothing will fundamentally change.

This comes at a time when Americans are now reporting that they trust corporations more than they trust their own government or media, when pundits are gleefully proclaiming in The New York Times that “CEOs have become the fourth branch of government” as they pressure the entire political system to smoothly install Biden, when the leading contender for the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division is an Obama holdover who went from the administration to working for both Amazon and Google, and when Americans are being paced into accepting an increasing amount of authoritarian changes for their own good.

And this manic celebration and increasing brazenness of corporate power are of course overlaid atop an unceasing river of human blood as the globe-spanning empire continues to smash any nation which disobeys it into compliance so as to ensure lasting uncontested planetary hegemony.

But hey, at least they voted out fascism.

The US empire is ugly and creepy. The more you look at it, the uglier and creepier it gets. That’s why so much effort goes into keeping the public from looking at it directly.

The US empire has two faces, one rooted in the west coast and the other in the east. The first face, which sprouts up from Hollywood, presents a grinning plastic smile to the world depicting how fun and wonderful and righteous America is and how all its systems are working completely fine. The second face, which sprouts up from DC, Arlington and Langley, is wild-eyed and covered in blood.

Just like any other two-faced monstrosity, the face you will see depends on where you are standing.

If you live in wealthy western nations, or in the US itself, you are mostly presented with the first face. The artificial culture pipeline runs from Hollywood to the rest of the world and keeps everyone seeing American life as fun, enjoyable and packed full of hilarious repartee, interspersed with the sexual attention of beautiful women and kicking bad guys into molten lava. Freedom and Democracy™️. Capitalism is totally working. You can trust these guys to run the world. News at eleven.

If you live in the Middle East, Asia, or in the Global South, you are far more likely to encounter the second face. The blood-spattered face. The face of murder. The face of tyranny. The face whose actions amount to nothing other than an endless war on disobedience, where any government which tries to insist on its own national, military, resource, commercial or financial sovereignty is smashed into the dirt by any means necessary until it either collapses or complies.

The empire needs both faces. Without the murder face, it could not exist as an empire. Without the grinning face, the public would never consent to the murder face.

People who inhabit the hub of a murderous empire are historically unaware of its horrific nature. In the old days that was because information was easy to restrict access to. Today it’s because information is easy to manipulate and distort. That’s the only difference between this murderous empire and those of old. That and the fact that this one is brandishing about weapons that can end the world with increasing recklessness.

Humanity will not know health and harmony until it knows truth. Until we collectively come to a lucid reckoning with what’s going on in our world, in our nations, in our society, and in ourselves. The movement toward a healthy world is a movement toward becoming aware of things we previously were not aware of. In this case, as a first step, this means collectively seeing behind that grinning plastic mask to the churning death machine underneath.

  • Losing weight in a short space of time has always been thought of as a near impossible task. For years,OSK doctors and dieticians have told the public that it takes months and sometimes even years of hard work to see any progress with weight loss, or to sculpt the perfect body. But that is simply not true at all.

    • Roundball Shaman – I’m not trying to be a stalker here, but I want to say, that I’m guessing you have been deep down in the rabbit hole just as I have been. That poem is really appreciated – thank you for posting it!
      ~
      So, if you haven’t been deep in the rabbit hole, let me tell you the first lesson to learn when you are there is………………
      ~
      Holy, moly – I’ve got to go. Sorry. Maybe later……

    • OK, I’m back. Here is the first lesson you learn in the rabbit hole.
      ~
      Things are not as they seem. Your senses sometimes play tricks on your mind, and even more-so, sometimes the things you thought, that were pushed into your mind when you were just a kid are so incredibly WRONG that you have to almost deny your whole existence to get over that hump of learning.
      ~
      But if you do that, then so much opens up. If you don’t, then when you go down into the hole get ready to be scared. It is pretty simple at the end of the day.
      ~
      Here is Lesson #1 of the rabbit hole:
      ~
      Learn or Die

      • And now just for the fun of it…..
        ~
        If you get Lesson #1, then Lesson #2 is this:
        ~
        FIGHT or be killed!

        • Lesson #3 is up to you.
          ~
          If you don’t fight, then you must be a puppet and if you are puppet the I have no time for you! If you are a psychopath causing harm to innocence just remember this – some of us have been deep down in the rabbit hole and we are coming to kick you asses – one at a time!

            If a government uses the instruments of power in its hands for the purpose of leading a people to ruin, then rebellion is not only the right but also the duty of every individual citizen.

  • Once again with even more feeling, the US government borrows money to fund its wars of aggression and world domination on behalf of transnational corporations. Therefore, any individual, or any nation, or any corporation, or any hedge fund, or any pension fund that buys US treasuries, or stock in US war corporations, or mutual funds that are, essentially, investing in US war corporations, are investing in the US’s perpetual wars. THESE “INVESTORS” WANT THE US’S WARS TO CONTINUE! THEY’LL “LOSE MONEY” ON THEIR INVESTMENTS IF THE US’S WARS DO NOT CONTINUE!

    BTW. speaking of blood money, I think investing in private prison corporations would be a very wise decision, profit-wise. I’ve been looking in my crystal ball and I see wildly increasing demand for their services from the federal and state Governments in the very near future. (There will almost certainly be a big boost in demand for barb wire, tear gas and pepper spray, too, so “get in” while you can.)

    • So right on morality and policy. So wrong on economics.

  • The world saw how gross and evil the monster really is in Vietnam and nothing changed and resistance was suppressed via some really ugly, horrible methods. The bad guys are winning and there’s nothing we can do.

    • There’s ALWAYS something we can do. You’re doing something, David, by reading and commenting on this blog, a weapon Caitlin wields to wound and weaken imperial propaganda. The bad guys only win if too many of us lose heart.

      • Amen Bro !!!

  • That’s all well and good, Caitlin and Tim (great article, BTW), but have you heard the really great news?!
     
    “Bill Gates is the biggest private owner of farmland”
    https://www.rfdtv.com/clip/15176635/bill-gates-is-the-biggest-private-owner-of-farmland
     
    240,000 acres equals 375 square miles equals a square with each side 19.4 miles long
     
    –What if the other 613 billionaires in the US follow Bill’s example?
     
    375 square miles X 613 billionaires equals 229,875 square miles
     
    –Even more exciting, what if the other 2,825 minus 613 equals 2,212 billionaires in the WORLD follow Bill’s example?
     
    375 square miles times 2,212 billionaires equals 829,500 square miles of probably the very best farmland owned “privately” by 2,825 human beings.
     
    –There are approximately 3,537,000 square miles of farmland in the US.
     
    Therefore, 829,500 square miles of the very best farmland divided by 3,537,000 square miles of farmland equals 23.5% of the farmland in the US.
     
    –The population of the world is approximately 7,400,000,000 people.
     
    Therefore, 2,825 billionaires divided by 7,400,000,000 total human beings equals 0.000038% of the population of the world (I’d call that a “microscopic percentage”, wouldn’t you?) would “own” 23.5% of the farmland in the US. That sounds fair, doesn’t it?
     
    — I’m beginning to think that rather than all of us living in a real-world version of “The Matrix”, we are actually living in a real-life version of the board game “Monopoly”. Which single human being of 7,400,000,000 human beings is going to own the whole goddamned world at the “end game”? Will it be Bill, Jeff, Jeff, Elon, Bernie, Mark, or Warren (I guess George is permanently “out” now, which is really too bad)? Things accelerating at the rate they are now, we might very well find out the “winner” very soon!
     
    (BTW, I suggest that from now on you go with “Notes from the edge of the narrative Monopoly game”)

    • Excuse me, I should have said corpse “Sheldon” rather than almost-a-corpse George. George is still in the running, but his time left on earth to become Master Of The World is fast running out. Hang in there, George.

    • God, I made a math error. Measure twice; cut once.
       
      The US’ 613 billionaires will own 229,875 square miles of prime farmland in the US. The other 2,212 billionaires of the world will own 829,500 square miles. Therefore, the world’s 2,825 billionaires – again, 0.000038% of the world’s population – will own 229,875 plus 829,500 equals 1,059,375 square miles of the very best US farmland. And 1,059,375 divided by 3,537,000 square miles equals 29.7% of US farmland, not 23.5%. Even more fair! ( BTW, 1,059,375 square miles is the area of a square with sides that are 1,029 miles long.)

    “EU Gives Go-Ahead For Eating Worms | ZeroHedge” https://www.zerohedge.com/political/eu-gives-go-ahead-eating-worms

  • “The movement toward a healthy world is a movement toward becoming aware of things we previously were not aware of.” To this I would add: “and don’t want to become aware of.” What run-of-mill American wants to believe that Uncle Sam is a split personality with a psychopathic side? The perfect example of such denial is that which has greeted the persistent efforts to reveal the truth of September 11, 2001. “It Is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.” Substitute “patriotism” for “salary,” and the statement still holds.

    • Broaden that metric out to ‘his/her sense of identity’, and the premise becomes universally applicable.

      • This really gets to the bottom of it. Thank you, Greg.

  • We are now within color-revolution warfare inside the “United” States. The best a people can do in this is to avoid taking the bait and attacking each other. “We” are not doing well with that yet.

    Here is an interview with senior US war correspondent, Michael Yon, who was outside the capital 1/6/21, observing agents provocateur and their tactics. He compares to his 7 months in Hong Kong, among protesters/insurgents there. He also compares to the successful agents provocateur hired by Ross Perot during the Iranian Revolution to turn a protest into a jailbreak of some Americans.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nvqvvsqJ_s&feature=youtu.be

    Masako Ganaha, from Okinawa, tracks divisive agent provocateur tactics in Asia, and details an extensive video timeline of the agents, two of them, setting the stage for somebody to jump into the window they smashed and called the crowd to, while a third got most of the video, and later appeared on CNN.
    All three are well tracked before, during and after the fatal shooting, and immediately begin publicizing it to agitate Trump supporters on the scene.

    • Where’s the interview with Von? Both links go to the interview with the Japanese journalist.

  • Caitlin, thats a very beautiful piece.
    More grease to your elbows…….. Pls been long we av not receive notes on psychedelic…..

  • The great American disconnect began after the Vietnam debacle. That was the last time people in the USA got to see the horrors of war on TV. Then Hollywood went into gear with movies like Top Gun selling the macho image to teenage boys, and TV news went to General Teddy Bear with a power point presentation. The sheeple have been drowned in infotainment ever since. And of course, the all “volunteer” army makes war a poor people’s reality. They think of college and a career, and the survivors wind up with PTSD and maybe a job as a cop or a security guard.

    Now screen time has replaced reality completely with “smart” phones. Almost all the sheeple completely hypnotized, and the sociopaths are running the asylum.

    “You say you want a Revolution, well you know, you better free your mind instead…”

    • Few Americans realize that the USA slaughtered some three million Vietnamese, and fewer than a million were combatants. Millions suffered from Agent Orange spraying, and thousands died from starvation from Agent Blue spraying on rice crops to destroy them. Here is a short video of this genocide.

  • After WWI, invasion of nations to steal resources fell somewhat out of favor in the world, which was awkward. If war and murder were out, then Capitalism-a euphemism for our government-had to find an alternative. It gambled that the next best thing to conquest was corruption, which proved to be cost effective besides, always a critical factor to us. You just pull the Marines out of Nicaragua, Haiti, Cuba, and the Philippines, and install a dirty elite to hand you the country for a tiny cut of the gross. It was much cheaper than murdering thousands of people.

    Coup, Coup, Kachoo…By Paul Edwards!
    http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/56194.htm

    • Short, honest, hard-hitting article. Truth in a nutshell. Thanks, Ron, for the link.

  • She lays out the kippahs on both coasts for all to see but won’t name them. Why?

    • what’s a kippah?

    • Perhaps because she doesn’t share your taste for red kippahs, dahling.

      • Or it may be that the elected officials where she lives frowns so much at pointing out the kippah connection that they need laws (as in Eurpoe) to stop anyone discussing kippahs and their inherent subversive proclivities.

        Or just maybe they are protected.

        • Or maybe it’s not vital to the point she is primarily seeking to make. If you think that it is then you say it exactly how you want it said. Why rely on someone else to do your talking for you?

          • Greg,

            Since when I write or make videos or communicate in person, I always name the problem. I wonder why others don’t.

            Its the leftist coastal Hollywood (owned lock stock and barrel by the little black hat wearers) and the MIC which is totally in the hands of neocon little black hat wearers, its such an obvious thing.

            There are plenty of reasons to NOT write it. But to suggest it isn’t pertinent is really idiotic.

            • I said vital not pertinent. Also, not everyone sees the problem exactly the same way. It might be her opinion that this additional info is neither vital nor pertinent toward establishing the basic tenet(s) being made. Perhaps that additional detail is omitted for clarity and/or breadth of access to audience to the particular points being made. Maybe there is disagreement as to the certainly of the veracity of that additional info. She is the one writing the article and gets to make those calls. The discussion can then exchange respective thoughts about that. Seems to be working fine.

              • Is what I wrote true about Hollywood and the MIC?

                And if I were to suggest that it is the Chinese infiltrating America, that wouldn’t be pertinent or vital?

                Knowing WHO is doing this is not “vital”?

                Please. That is ridiculous on its face.

                I’m not telling the woman what to write. I wonder why the elephant in the room, taking up all the oxygen, is left unidentified.

                As I wrote, there are ample reasons. But in my opinion, the end result in not saying it equates to HIDING it. Because of this, I question the real motivation of her work.

                • What is happening is structurally clear as day yet many still cannot or will not grasp it. Identifying, in general terms, what sectors, mechanisms and very high profile identities are perpetrating this dysfunction is also quite evident. Yet this is also beyond the vision of many people. Raising these patently evident themes with the majority of ‘ordinary’ people and the gate-keepers that surround them, incurs almost certain attack with diversionary smears such as ‘conspiracy theorist’ and ‘extremist’. But the facts about these themes are very clear and indivisible and those smears can be pushed through.

                  Breaking down the perpetrator list to more specific detail cannot be so readily or so certainly evidenced. The resolution of this finer detail of causality is largely inductive rather than deductive. What that means is that the ‘tin-hat’ and ‘nut-job’ smears become much more easily and intractably attached to the story being told.

                  Many people who agree on the primary elements of the problem will disagree and argue regarding this finer level of detail. In that context these details are not vital to a useful understanding the issues being raised in the article. Indeed they could be obstructive toward those understanding reaching a wider audience.

                • BTW, this author has repeatedly outed Hollywood as a key player in the construction and dissemination of Empire narratives. She doesn’t take it to the ethnic level as you seem to demand she does. Getting people to see that Hollywood conjures nightmares not dreams is more incisively productive than being bogged in a wallow over ethnic claims. It is best to restrict this aspect to where it is objectively clear, such as AIPAC’s pressure upon elected US decision-makers.

                  • Greg,

                    My “demand” came in a question.

                    I understand that some people think that what is glaringly obvious still needs to stay unknown in the minds of my fellow Americans. But to me, at this juncture, it is time for the regular Joes to KNOW who, precisely, is doing the dirty deeds of control and manipulation.

                    Nebulous “Hollywood” and the MIC, etc are good, but still lacking.

                    KNOW the people. Name them. And when you do, what type of names are the most obvious?

                    Then, with just a little research, one can understand that it is this very group, over and over and over, throughout millennia, that has done the same things to many different countries, leading to their expulsions hundreds of times. A little more research shows that their religion teaches such and that understanding that these people are raised to believe those Talmudic renderings as truth, meaning they can rule over everyone else as they treat them like cattle.

                    NONE of this is imaginary in my brain. AND it is MOST important.

                    I like her writings, but like so many more, she won’t go to the root of the problem.

                    It is sad, but not unexpected.

                    No, I don’t demand that she name them. But since she won’t, I question her motives.

                    • The motive can reasonably be to project maximum clarity and penetration regarding what is happening without that being obstructed by fractiousness about who precisely is doing it. Not nearly enough people adequately know or accept what is happening. Until they do assertions about precisely who is doing these things that they don’t yet understand do act to enormously confuse things.

                    • The only confusion is NOT telling people exactly what is going on. Is truth actually truth when people hide it? How will people ever learn what is truly happening (and by whom) if it is constantly hid (for whatever her reason is)?

                      Don’t bother answering for her. I already know the why.

                      Its just sad that this hesitancy keeps the power in place and there are plenty of commentators who push for the secrecy. Most are brainwashed, and many are shabbos.

                      Thanks for the dialogue, even tho there is little you offered to explain it adequately. Its just hiding the truth. Just like most sites and authors.

  • Those who really do have more money than you can shake a stick at will spare no expense for their triumphalist globalist celebrations! Trump’s patriotic nose will be rubbed in brown smelly stuff forever for standing up to the megalomaniac globalists as they take the glittering prize. Now the gloves will be off for the genocide* of all the ordinary humans of the entire world under a plandemic disguise. The time of the Bolsheviks was a mere dress rehearsal pure and simple. The long game approaches its insane conclusion unless, of course, the gullible wake up and snap out of the MSM hypnosis. The fat lady is not singing as yet but she’s getting ready…

    * Depopulation in other words.

  • Dunno if you fix typos; proofing help if you do:

    Extraneous word: “brandishing about weapons”

    • Please? Is this your contribution to Caitlin’s piece? If you can find anything you agree with, then go with that. Getting stuck on typos always the fate of people who write.

    • That would be “proofing helps”, no?

  • Great article. Reminds me of a sign at my bank years ago. It read, We will be closing at 5 pm instead of 6 pm starting next week for your convenience. Pretty much describes America.

    • Delete the “y” from “your” and it’s fixed!

  • You’re right about the two faced bitch; I once had a tiny glimmer of hope but even our new Muslim Legislators, appear to be plants of the British Empire, who will be unleashed upon the world in much the same way as Obama was raping both the peoples of the world as well as Americans themselves. The Speaker of House openly talks of the nuclear bombing of American cities by Americans, an event that has a high probability of occurring on the 22nd of this month, but it hardly matters one way or the other if it actually does, because the ground work has already been laid, and I doubt that anyone cares, at least here in the U.S.. In any event I think that I’m hearing from the heavens that there has been a change of heart, and that there will be no visitation but rather we will be abandoned to our own devices and thus our own extermination ensured.

    • I wonder if we’ll get another Purim war this year. Last one was the invasion of Libya on Purim March 19, 2011. Before that was the invasion of Iraq on March 19, 2003 and before that was the famous Highway of Death massacre in Iraq on Purim February 27 1991. This year it’s February 25 – 26 and Pompeo has declared Al Qaeda’s new home base is in Iran the B-52’s are in position.

    • So Jesus has stopped praying that the Kingdom of God will come on earth, has stopped demanding that we believe in such a future (which perhaps helps it to come)? You and I are hearing different voices from “from the heavens.”

  • So perfectly expressed. Kudos

  • I am making a good salary online from home.I’ve made 97,999 dollar.s so for last 5 months working online and I’m a full time student. I’m using an online business opportunity I’m just so happy that I found out about it……..Read More 

    • Myrtle, you are truly a pathetic poster child for online censorship, but we’re not buying that bullshit, or yours. You’ll never break that elusive $98,000 barrier around here. We’re all a little edgy these days, so the best I can hope for you is that no one recognizes you from your picture.

      • Myrtle most likely doesn’t exist. It may well be that you’re talking to digital robots.

        • Spammers are like a bad disease; they never go away and they are everywhere. May you get sick and die Ms M!

          • If Myrtle is not a robot, then she’s likely desperate to make ends meet by spamming away her days, perhaps being paid only when she makes a connection between exploiter and exploitee. If she’s a real person in such desperate circumstances, do you really hope that she gets sick and dies?

            • How does a robot get around reCAPTCHA? As for myself, I would live under an overpass and eat out of a dumpster before I’d become a spammer or a telemarketer.

        • Hard to tell anymore, innit?

          • I’ve been able to obtain “Myrtyles” personal information. Is anyone interested?Is Myrtle?

            • Is it a real person or a machine entity? A bit of a wave of this occurring right now. I was wondering if an algorithm had breached the captcha filters.

  • Caitlin do you ever feel hopeless? If so how do you pull yourself out of it?

    There’s no writer I trust as much as you for news and commentary. Caitlin’s the best.

  • Ms Johnstone, my fellow United States citizens turn a ” blind eye ” to the bloodshed our government promotes and condones all over this planet because we very willingly swallow the ” hype ” and brainwashing constantly fed to us. Our government will continue to do whatever it wants to because the people living inside this country do no care what it does or to whomever it does it to. As long as we have our illusions and our electronic gadgets to play with we will continue to look the other way.

  • Americans are so afraid, they hide under their filthy face diapers in terror of getting a virus or of getting punished by the American Gestapo. They are the kind of people who would run to catch the last train to Auschwitz while the Allies are landing on Normandy just because the Fascist Fauci told them too.

    • Wow, that didn’t sound crazy at all.

      • A perception at the extreme end of reckoning perhaps, but not crazy.

        • A subtle distinction at best, dude.

          • Craziness manifests as a wildly incorrect and incoherent perception and collation of observed happenings. Whilst extreme in their premise, Bill’s observations aren’t without foundation and are certainly not incoherent. It’s not reasonably possible to say without any doubt that he is fundamentally incorrect in seeing any or all of it that way.
