DeGraw the Controller? Assange the Messiah?
By Staff News & Analysis - October 17, 2011

Julian Assange arrived at the London protest outside like a modern day messiah flanked by his disciples … He pushed through the police kettle followed by an entourage shouting 'Julian, Julian'. He is now on the steps of St Paul's … The whole crowd went mental, chanting 'Julian' … – Guardian/BBC

Dominant Social Theme: It's the second coming …

Free-Market Analysis: Speaking of Assange-the-Messiah and his visitation to St. Paul's, we've recently received incessant calls from several paranoid friends. To stop the barrage, we've combine their rants into one narrative as follows …

"I dunno why you never take my calls, DB, {Ed note: Because you call so much?] but I'm one of your biggest fans! Look, I have to tell you the fix is in … These protests are controlled from the get-go. You were right the other day to call them the 'big Kahuana.' This is kinda the final push, I think.

"The elites – the REAL power elites – can take those Direct Democracy and Transparency memes that you've written about [Ed Note: See more on these themes at the bottom of this article] and carry them around the world just like you said. Who did Alex Jones just have on his radio program yesterday? That 'futurist' fellow Gerald Celente?

"He's great, but the interview was a surprise. [Ed note" Thanks to feedbacker Memewatcher for mentioning this as well.] Dude went on and on about how the hope of the future was DIRECT DEMOCRACY. Out of the blue! Suddenly everybody's talking about it. Five thousand years of republican history goes down the drain. Now only direct democracy will do.

"Of course, in a direct democracy, it will cost even MORE to influence the vote, and the only people with such deep pockets are the ones with really big money. Direct democracy is a way of ASSURING that the big money controls society, even more'n today if that's possible.

"Assange – just like you said, he may end up being a leader. That's his role. The rapist thing don't matter; it's only made him sound virile – a bad boy victim. Worst case, he goes to jail for a while, writes a book and returns bigger than ever.

"You've done great work on this whole issue! You even called Assange the new Messiah way back last December 10th, in your article, 'Ascension of Assange?' I looked it up! Remember what you wrote as a dominant social theme. He is nothing and everything. He is Alpha and Omega. He is yin and yang. Fallen and damned. God and Godhead.

"Admit it. You guys think he's being 'groomed' for leadership. A six-foot-four bottle-blond with money, fame and an anti-establishment 'tude … reportedly women were swooning when he arrived at St. Paul's and holding up signs saying they wanted his baby.

"No, you're not surprised Assange is part of these protests! He gets chased out of Sweden and lands in Britain just in time for the world to blow up. Convenient, huh, him in front of a church? BBC reported on the speech and said he'd been treated like some kinda deity.

"The police had stopped him and taken his Vendetta mask, but that didn't stop the show. The reporter said she'd never seen anything like the adulation he received. And speaking of Vendetta masks, I gotta tell you I didn't put it together before but these two movies … Matrix and Vendetta … I think they're part of that Hollywood 'preconditioning' process …

Yeah, you've written about it. The idea is to familiarize people with what's coming next. You can say what's happening with these protests is part of Hayek's spontaneous order, but … nah – whaddya call it – directed history is the game!

"Now how about this guy David DeGraw? You've mentioned him before. He just wrote a satirical piece saying he wasn't CIA or military Intel or whatever. That's what I call a 'preemptive strike.' Try to find out about this guy! I can't find anything on the 'Net before 2010, maybe 2009.

"Anyway, I read his stuff, his main article – the one that emphasizes elite influencers. It's called 'Full Report: The Economic Elite Vs. The People of the United States of America.' He starts with a pyramid, of course!

"He calls it the pyramid of greed, and at the very tiptop is the elite, which he calls the .05 percent. After that, he mentions institutions – the World Bank, IMF and then Corporations, Private Military, Covert Ops, then National Governments, Citizen Military and Mass Media.

"Now, that's a little strange. He's calculating the top economic elite consists of some 1.5 million people! What kind of elite is that? Sounds more like a convention. Hell, one man, David Rockefeller, was instrumental in the modern BIS, and in building the World Bank, the IMF and the UN. DeGraw doesn't even mention the UN!

"He doesn't even mention Rockefeller, or not that I could find – Rothschilds, either. But he's willing to blame this situation on a million wealthy individuals united by "an ideology of greed." That's not how it works! The concentration of power at the very top is always very SMALL, maybe a few people. Human nature. And look at the pyramid he comes up with for the US:

Federal Reserve

Business Council

Bilderberg Group

Conference Board

Brookings Institute

Advertising Council

Heritage Foundation

Trilateral Commission

Business Round Table

Chamber of Commerce

Federal Trade Commission

Council on Foreign Relations

"See how he's got all these business organizations right at the top? He's got the Advertising Council above the Trilateral Commission! And the Chamber of Commerce above the Council on Foreign Relations. The Chamber of Commerce! Here's some more from that article:

I don't view the Economic Elite as a small group of men who meet in secrecy to control the world. They do feature elements of conspiracy and are clearly composed of secretive organizations like the Bilderberg Group – this is not a conspiracy theory, this is a conspiracy fact – but as a whole, the Economic Elite are primarily united by ideology.

They're made up of thousands of individuals who subscribe to an ideology of exploitation and the belief that wealth and resources need to be concentrated into the fewest hands possible (theirs), at the expense of the many. That being said, there are some definite lead players in this group and it is important that we are not too vague and expose the individuals who publicly lead them.

Focusing on the fundamental structure of the US economy, we have people like Hank Paulson, Tim Geithner, Ben Bernanke, Robert Rubin, Larry Summers, Alan Greenspan, Lloyd Blankfein, Jamie Dimon, John Mack, Vikram Pandit, John Thain, Hank Greenberg, Ken Lewis, John J. Castellani, Edward Yingling and Tom Donohue.

In total, the Economic Elite are made up of about 0.5% of the US population. At the center of this group is the Business Roundtable, an organization representing Fortune 500 CEOs that is also interlocked with several lead elite organizations. Most Americans have never heard of the Business Roundtable. However, in my analysis, it is the most influential and powerful Economic Elite organization.

"So, who is this guy, DeGraw? When you look at his targets, it's institutions like the Business Council and the Business Roundtable. These are the problem? Really? The main problems? Not central banking and monetary inflation?

"DeGraw also said that this group Anonymous helped salvage his organization and effort a year ago. Sounds like a Hollywood script, huh? Do some research on Anonymous and who they've 'attacked.' Plenty of questions about this 'group' …

"And what about Adbusters? They come into the scene a few months ago, funded by the very elite groups that DeGraw and others say constitute the .05 percent 'enemy.' Someone from Adbusters magazine even reserves the domain name 'Occupy Wall Street.'

"What's all this talk about guillotines and the French Revolution? The French Revolution was a disaster, one that began at the 'top' and then ended up slaughtering everyone. Such revolutions aimed at 'perfecting' society and 'purging' inequities using government instruments always eat their own children. That means YOU.

"Of course, you can argue that the movement wants nothing to do with government solutions. But that's sure not how the mainstream media is playing it – and DeGraw himself is featuring that crazy Rolling Stone writer Matt Taibbi on his website! Every solution Taibbi offers involves more government, more taxes, more statist intervention.

"This bitterness being aimed at the 'rich' is dangerous. What starts with millionaires can easily ratchet downwards! That's what happened during the French Revolution – and in China, too, during the Great Leap Forward. And in Germany under Hitler.

"What's with all this chanting? When Assange ascended to the steps of St. Paul's to address the multitudes, the crowd repeated parts of his speech in a call-and-response! He would say something and the crowd would pick it up. Spooky. Very doctrinaire.

"OK! Enough for now. You keep doing what you're doing. Just wanted to get this off my chest! Things probably aren't what they seem, not even DeGraw and Assange!

OK, we've done our bit. So no more phone calls – though, it's true, still more questions than answers … Anyway, we're not so sure about DeGraw as our paranoid friends. The jury's out, as we wrote in "Who is David DeGraw and What Is Thrive?"

DeGraw himself is an obviously unusual and seemingly admirable person … Until we have other evidence, we will state for the record that he is apparently an invaluable person who has literally set the world on fire by providing the impetus for the Occupy Wall Street movement.

But we also wrote in the same article that, "DeGraw's ringing affirmation of the so-called 'Arab-Spring' in various writings makes us queasy. The Arab Spring was evidently and obviously at least in part a State Department and CIA caper."

And we added, "Yes … there's too much about the movement that seems manipulated at this point. The movement's emphasis on a weird form of direct democracy, pseudo anarchists like [Adbuster's] David Graeber (who somehow also favors communism) and the participation of the obviously elite-oriented bought-and-paid-for Adbusters magazine all provide Occupy Wall Street with the profile of a kind of 'controlled opposition.'"

Here's more we wrote from a "conspiracy standpoint" …

The current political promotional schematic began with elite operative Julian Assange who purchased WikiLeaks with (someone's) money and set about turning it into a philosophical embodiment of what can be called the Transparency meme. (The idea that government is rotten but can be fixed via Internet transparency efforts.)

Enter Occupy Wall Street – the other part of the pincer. Leaders of Occupy Wall Street want to assure us that direct democracy can prevail against money power. Apparently developed and promoted by communist-"anarchist" David Graeber, direct democracy is a portmanteau that can be easily transported (metaphorically) from region to region and country to country.

Thus, it is the power elite, behind these memes, has now developed the tools necessary for the steps in the effort to create one world government. The IMF, of course, will provide the world's single currency, SDRs.

Soon, there will be other sub-dominant social themes available for consumption, promotions such as 15October. These are intended either to add credibility to the current propagandistic schemes underway or to confuse them. As one of our feedbackers put it, they may be intended, in aggregate, to make those who oppose the current money system look "crazy as loons."

This is what one would call a highly conspiratorial reading of the events of the modern day. You will take it, dear reader, for what it's worth. … [Of course] even if this is the plan, far-fetched as it sounds, the Internet Reformation may itself make such elaborate strategies impossible to implement.

Editor's Note: People's movement or psyops? … There seems little doubt that the Occupy Wall Street movement is turning increasingly leftist and apparently its leaders (who do not exist) may have plans to remain viable by moving south for the winter to DC and Florida. Now there are suggestions for an OWS-inspired National General Assembly which is to be attended by 870 elected delegates in Philadelphia on July 4, 2012. The American Dream website reports on the plan and asks the following: “Are We Witnessing The Birth Of A New Far Left Political Party In The United States?” The article, also posted over at Alex Jones’ flagship website, cites a document recently released entitled "The 99 Percent Declaration” putting forth “tentative” demands related to the Occupy Wall Street movement. The American Dream article summarizes the "progressive" demands as follows: “[They] include getting all corporate money out of elections, forcing the wealthy to pay their "fair share" of taxes, Medicare for all American citizens, giving the EPA the power to totally shut down corporations, caps on carbon emissions [etc.] …” The various statements from American Dream do NOT however seem to represent official OWS sentiments. If for no other reason than to create a historical record, we'll continued to cover the question of whether this is a spontaneous movement or a controlled one.

After Thoughts

Our jury is still out … for now …
