The Common Sense Show
by Dave Hodges
I was recently relating a story to young adults about how managed care companies make money by denying care. One case in point involved a mother and her precious daughter who was only 18 months old. The child had developed a 104 degree temperature. The mother called 911 and was told to go to Martin Luther King Jr. hospital in Los Angeles. Upon arrival, hospital officials told the desperate mother that Kaiser Permanente had denied the use of this “out of network hospital” to her daughter. Fearing that her daughter’s death was imminent, the mother begged and pleaded for the hospital to ignore Kaiser and treat her 18 month old anyway before she died. Both were forcibly removed from the hospital. The mother arrived at the second hospital just in time for her daughter to go into cardiac arrest and die.
A group of American expatriates, living in France, were once filmed reacting to this story and they said it would be impossible for this to happen in France because the “government feared the people”, while in America, the “people feared the government”. I asked these young people if they feared their government.
“In France, the government fears the people. In America, the people fear the government”.
What I discovered was that this was not a yes or no answer. Instead, many expressed the view that they feel powerless in the face of a government that permits these heinous behaviors to continue to happen. I was awestruck by the implications of what I was hearing. In that moment, I saw the future of our nation. I realized in that one small moment why America will never reclaim her glory. I now completely understand why this nation will never experience a rebirth where, like in Iceland, we throw all of the criminal banksters in prison and erase all public debt to Wall Street. I now know that only individual salvation is possible.
There are two reasons why America has no chance of reclaiming our position of prominence: (1) As a nation, we are absolutely and irrevocably spiritually bankrupt. As a result, God will not inspire a national rebirth because we are now a nation under judgment. Although, individual salvation is still possible, national revival is out of the question; and, (2) For the most part, our people are psychologically paralyzed. Our individual and national self-esteem is very low. Americans have lost their spirit of resilience. We no longer equate positive action with positive outcomes. We have been conditioned as a people to accept defeat without so much as a struggle.
America is Spiritually Bankrupt
Abraham asked if the Lord would spare the two decadent cities if fifty righteous people lived there. The Lord said yes. Boldly, Abraham kept bargaining down, until God agreed not to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah if even ten righteous people lived there. Then the Lord departed. Unable to find even 10 righteous men, the Lord subsequently rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah, destroying the buildings, the people, and all the vegetation in the plain. This is our future because we have lost our true Christian heritage. The wages of sin are death and destruction. Apparently, we have learned very little from the lessons of history.
If the Lord were to visit Washington DC and encounter the likes of Pelosi, Reid, Feinstein, McCain and Obama, he would find that there were not 50 righteous men, there were not 40 righteous men, not 30, not 20, not even 10 righteous men and just like Sodom and Gomorrah, we will surely be destroyed. Our government is the source of nearly every war on this planet which kills and maims untold numbers of innocent people including the very old and the very young. Our government is controlled by the minions of the NWO, many of which are empowered to serve Lucifer. Our government and our military no longer serve the people of this country. Prior to the 2008 first round of bailouts, former Goldman Sachs executive and the Secretary of the Treasury, Hank Paulson, stated that if we did not bail out Wall Street, we would see tanks and troops in our streets in one of the most treasonous statements ever uttered by a government official. And before the Libyan invasion, the Congress was told that our military was now under the control of NATO and the UN and that they had no say in whether we go to war, or not. Our country and government have been totally hijacked and it is not just the bankster thugs who have stolen our most precious resources. The minions of the NWO are controlled by Satan. This is not hyperbole, please consider the following quote from an United Nations official:
“No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation.”
David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations
WE LIVE IN A COUNTRY THAT HAS MURDERED 60 MILLION BABIES AND THEN ALLOWED PLANNED PARENTHOOD PROCEEDED TO SELL THEIR BODY PARTS FOR PROFIT. HOW CAN ANYONE BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS NOT WITHDRAWN HIS PROTECTION OVER THIS NATION? WE ARE A CONDEMNED PEOPLE!
America Is Psychologically Paralyzed
When I was growing up, I remember hearing phrases like “Yankee ingenuity” and the various play on words Amer”ICAN” to describe the resilient spirit of our people. America is a psychological shell of what it once was.
The Corporate Controlled Media
Six, count them six corporations control 98% of the media. They virtually control everything you read, see and hear. These six corporations are intertwined with controlling forces of big oil, the military industrial complex, the Federal Reserve and Wall Street. They control who gets elected through campaign donations and more importantly, they have brainwashed an entire nation to accept serfdom at the hands of their corporate masters.
The corporate controlled media uses specific psychological techniques to control the belief systems of the public.
Behavior Modification Through Operant and Classical Conditioning
Russian physiologist, Ivan Pavlov, at the turn of the 20th century, conducted a set of experiments which became known as “Pavlov’s Dog”. In the experiment, Pavlov would repeatedly ring a bell when he presented food to a dog and the dog would salivate to the food only. Eventually, the dog associated the hearing of the bell with the food and Pavlov discovered that the dog was subsequently trained to salivate to merely the sound of the bell. This principle became known as Classical Conditioning.
Classical conditioning techniques, present in the corporate controlled media, can condition most members of the public to denigrate anything sounding like a “conspiracy theory”. For example, anyone who suggests that anyone in government would ever engage in a conspiracy is quickly marginalized. Try explaining the concept of fractional reserve banking and how the Federal Reserve banks can take in one dollar and then turn around and create, out of thin air, 10 more dollars to loan out. Or, explain the simple forensics of the JFK assassination which proves that Lee Harvey Oswald did not fire a shot, and what happens? You are quickly marginalized by those around who say something like, “I did not know you were one of these conspiracy theorists”. Therefore, the mere use of the term “conspiracy theorist” becomes a programmed, automatically conditioned trigger to reject any notion of a verifiable conspiracy theory. The NWO never cease conditioning us with an endless supply of propaganda because they own the media.
There is a second set of principles that is being used by the mainstream media to reinforce the “fallacy” of any conspiracy theory and this is called Behavior modification it is a set of therapies / techniques and it is based on operant conditioning which was first brought to light by B.F. Skinner. The main principle comprises changing environmental events that are related to a person’s behavior and beliefs. The best example of these techniques at work would be the old Nazi notion that if you tell a big enough lie, often enough, the people will begin to accept the lie as truth. Subsequently, these two techniques are used in conjunction to create a false paradigm to the American people.
The Normalcy Bias
Once the globalists have control of the media and they have utilized the principles of classical and operant conditioning, a normalcy bias sets in and pervades the belief systems of the American people. The people become so convinced that there cannot be conspiracies, that when events such Fast and Furious, Benghazi and the present Jade Helm crisis begin to come to light, the public has been conditioned to ignore anything which smacks of a conspiracy. What would have sent millions of Americans to the streets before the advent of TV, now rolls right over the heads of most Americans.
The Normalcy Bias condition is well known to psychologists and sociologists. It refers to a mental state of denial in which individuals enter into when facing a disaster or pending danger. Normalcy Bias leads people to underestimate and minimize both the possibility of a catastrophe actually happening, as well as its possible consequences to their health and safety.
The Normalcy Bias often results in situations where people fail to prepare for a likely and impending disaster. The Normalcy Bias leads people to believe that since something has never happened before, that it never will happen. Therefore, like an infant with a security blanket we cling to our habitual, repetitive, and normal way of life, despite overwhelming proof that serious danger lies ahead. The viewing of President Obama as a danger to the American people by engaging in unprecedented dissident extraction and martial law drills through Jade Helm.
The Normalcy Bias is part of human nature and, to some extent, we are all guilty of participating in it. Unfortunately, the Normalcy Bias inhibits our ability to prevent and to eventually cope with a disaster once it is underway. People with Normalcy Bias have difficulty reacting to something they have not experienced before. The Normalcy Bias also leads people to interpret warnings and to inaccurately reframe information in order to project an optimistic outcome which leads the person to infer a less serious situation. In short, it is kind of a pain-killing drug which numbs a person to an impending danger.
Do you suffer from Normalcy Bias? Could you become a victim of the “my people perish from a lack of knowledge?” If you are being honest with yourself, and do not see a threat in the existing power structure with the advent of Jade Helm or the ongoing California water crisis, then you are likely a sufferer of Normalcy Bias.
Even when the evidence of a conspiracy is so massive, the globalists have a means to counter the real facts and this falls under the category of learned helplessness as discovered by Martin Seligman.
“There is nothing we can against criminal corporations and a corrupt government”.
Psychologist, Martin Seligman, discovered that “Learned helplessness” occurs when an animal is repeatedly subjected to an aversive stimulus that it cannot escape. Eventually, the animal will stop trying to avoid the stimulus and behave as if it is utterly helpless to change the situation. Even when opportunities to escape are presented, this learned helplessness will prevent any action”.
In the first phase of the learned helplessness experiment, Seligman placed a dog on an electrical grid, shocked the dog and noted that the dog would demonstrate the ability to escape the aversive stimulus.
In the second phase, the dog was barricaded on the grid and was unable to escape the painful shocks. Eventually the dog laid down and passively accepted the shock.
Seligman then removed the barricades and the dog could have easily escaped the shocks. However, the dog, conditioned by the prior set of events, simply laid down and accepted the shocks, without mounting any resistance whatsoever. This is present day California.
Learned Helplessness In America
This is how present day America has been conditioned to not act in the fact of absolute criminal behavior coming from the Obama administration. Today, we lay down in the face of the abject criminality of our government. We accept GMO’s, chemtrails, CPS sponsored child sex trafficking, the theft of our mortgages, the murder of dissidents, constant surveillance, unsafe medicines and foods, and the privatization of our most vital resources which are being priced out of our reach (e.g. water). We simply give up as a country in trying to change things because the system has been so unresponsive to the demands of the public, we have become conditioned to believe that our actions will not make any difference.
We sit primed today to accept everything our government does to us on behalf of their corporate controllers (phase three). The end result of our passivity is depopulation.
Today’s America is morally and spiritually bankrupt. We are a nation that embraces every form of perversion and are unable tell right from wrong. We are also a nation that is psychologically paralyzed who won’t even move to defend herself in the face of life-threatening danger. Yes, you should continue to speak the truth, you might be able to wake up and save a few people. However, your focus should be on adaptation and surviving what is unfolding. You cannnot stop it, you can only adapt. Save your soul while America prepares to rest in peace.
