Obey, Stay Asleep, Doubt Humanity 

“[T]hey are safe as long as they are not discovered.” 

On November 4, 1988, four days before the presidential election that made Skull and Bonesman George Bush Sr. the forty-first president, filmmaker John Carpenter’s cult classic They Live was released. A promotional poster for the film stated: 

“You see them on the street. You watch them on TV. You might even vote for one this fall. You think they’re people just like you. You’re wrong. Dead wrong.” 

If you haven’t yet watched the film, click this link and do so. You won’t regret it (that said, review this guide regarding the film’s rating and what to watch out for before watching. Turn off the final scene of the movie to avoid a brief nude scene). The film – like a parody of everything Alex Jones has been right about – is stunningly accurate in the way it depicts how a secret alien race has secretly seized control of society through careful infiltration, indoctrination, and mass media mind manipulation. And that’s precisely what I want to discuss today – the takeover of our society by a similarly hostile clique using the same means of control. 

If you’re subscribed to my Red Alert newsletter, you know that in Red Alert No. 34 published this past weekend, I covered media manipulation. I talked about how the controlled press uses pre-selected themes and messages to program us to think and react in certain ways. Specifically, I showed the inconsistencies between the mainstream media’s biased and lying reporting on the Arizona Senate election audit hearing and what the presenters actually said. It’s crucial that we, as citizens and patriots, develop a sense of discernment. We must learn to see through the lies, recognize when we’re being sold a false narrative, and discern truth from error. Everything depends upon our ability to see clearly. 

The ability to see clearly was the key element in They Live. I won’t explain the entire movie, but suffice it to say that it took place in an economically depressed Los Angeles during a time period when the public had been put into a state of consciousness resembling sleep – total cognitive oblivion. Subliminal messages emitting from satellite dishes hidden atop a news station building in the city put the public to sleep and prevented them from recognizing their alien attackers. 

This alien race had covertly mingled among the humans, infiltrating business, banking, government, police, and media. The president was one of them. The local newscasters were their agents. And even little old ladies in the corner store could be imposters. Many of those who were not aliens were recruited and paid handsomely for their silence and complicity. Together, the aliens and their abettors had lulled society to sleep, were squeezing out the last underground cells of resistance, and were chemically transforming the earth’s atmosphere to their own in preparation for final victory. 

Unfortunately for the invaders, some could see through their lies. With diligence and sacrifice, a group of dissidents created a type of sunglasses that allowed the wearer to see the aliens in their true hideous form. The sunglasses also let them see the subliminal messaging for what it was. To prepare humanity for an awakening to their awful reality, the dissidents periodically hacked into the mainstream news feed, giving bursts of truth. For instance, in one scene, the hacker warned: 

“Our impulses are being redirected. We are living in an artificially-induced state of consciousness that resembles sleep . . . The poor and the underclass are growing. Racial justice and human rights are non-existent. They have created a repressive society and we are their unwitting accomplices. Their intention to rule rests with the annihilation of consciousness. We have been lulled into a trance. They have made us indifferent to ourselves, to others. We are focused only on our own gain. Please, understand, they are safe as long as they are not discovered. That is their primary method of survival. Keep us asleep. Keep us selfish. Keep us sedated.” 

What was the reaction of the average person who heard this blast of cold, hard truth? Dismissal. Skepticism. Anger. In fact, they experienced a physical reaction – a painful headache. These people had been asleep for so long that they’d lost their ability to discern reality from fabrication. Their sense of self-preservation became skewed as they learned to be helpless and submit like sheep. Because of their waking sleep, they experienced sharp cognitive dissonance and pushed back against the hacker, calling him a conspiracy theorist. They refused to even consider the ideas though those ideas were correct and would help them free themselves from slavery. 

Though the majority were hopelessly asleep, at least a few honest souls retained their sense of reality, their capacity to reason, and their ability to recognize truth. The movie’s main character was one of those curious and honest enough to at least entertain the radical thoughts being shared. Through a series of events I won’t go into, he obtained a pair of those sunglasses mentioned earlier. That’s when everything changed. 

As our protagonist walked down the street trying on the sunglasses, he glanced at a large billboard. On it was the word “OBEY” in big letters. He quickly ripped off the glasses to look again. To his natural eyes, the billboard – ostensibly representing a company called Control Data – read: “We’re creating the transparent computing environment.” Donning the glasses again, he saw that the altruistic advertisement was gone and the word “OBEY” was back. 

Rubbing his eyes and walking on, he passed a stand selling books, magazines, and other reading materials. Through the sunglasses, he saw that the book covers appeared totally different. Instead of glittery covers with stories about sports, celebrities, taxes, etc., the books bore radically different titles promoting defeatism, consumerism, and conformity. I took the liberty of writing down every title and dystopian message in the evocative scene. Here is the list: 

Honor Apathy 
Reward Indifference 
This is Your God (inscribed on money) 
Marry and Reproduce 
Watch TV 
Stay Asleep 
No Ideas 
No Imagination 
No Independent Thought 
Do Not Question Authority 
Obey Authority 
Doubt Humanity 

These were the messages that bombarded humans all day, every day on billboards, in print, and on the news. They were designed to make people complacent, unthinking, and subservient. The messages represented the sad reality of humanity’s degraded existence – apathy, indifference, no imagination, conformity, hopelessness, and surrender. The only message that the aliens got right was “marry and reproduce,” though even this was twisted to mean that humans should mix with the alien imposters, thus breeding themselves out of existence. 

In addition to these insipid messages, 24/7 the aliens sent out a subliminal signal imperceptible to the normal ear but recognizable to the subconscious: “Sleep. Sleep. Sleep.” And that’s exactly what happened – humanity was in a deep sleep and gradually, unwittingly, embraced their thralldom. 

In They Live, the protagonist reacted to his new reality the way any normal, red-blooded man would – with disgust and aggression. At one point, he remarked: “I got news for ‘em. There gonna be hell to pay. Cuz I ain’t daddy’s little boy no more.” Another time, he called out a woman in a store whom, he saw, was actually an ugly alien in disguise. In turn, she reported him to authorities via her watch-communicator: “I’ve got one that can see!” From that moment on, our hero was pursued by the police and their concealed controllers. He soon had to defend himself with force to avoid unjust arrest and, presumably, liquidation. Eventually, he used the guns he took from his altercation with police to open fire on the alien invaders before going on the run. 

While in hiding, he went to a friend to explain everything. The friend, however, thought it was better to keep his head down and not rock the boat. Consequently, he violently refused to simply try on the sunglasses and see the truth for himself. He and the protagonist got into a prolonged fist fight over it. Our hero kept telling him to simply put on the sunglasses and look – a seemingly simple task. But the cognitive dissonance was controlling and the friend refused. Finally, with a lot of effort, our hero literally forced the sunglasses onto his friend’s face, making him see the world for what it really was. 

Even for those who became awake and aware, the tendency to keep your head down and not make waves was strong. Within the resistance movement, there were those who wanted to start spilling alien blood. Others, however, urged them to go about their normal routine and bide their time. Ultimately, their hand was forced as the aliens, tipped off by a traitor in the ranks, descended upon the meeting spot, guns blazing. It was guns and guts that decided the day. I leave you to watch the conclusion of the tale for yourself. 

Let’s analyze a little. Anyone conversant with modern life knows that the same messages being beat into the minds of humans in They Live are the exact same being inculcated into society today. We’re told that humanity is inherently sick and diseased, destructive and dangerous. We’re told to stay glued to our TVs and to stop thinking for ourselves. We’re told to accept what we’re told, to accept authority, and to accept our fate. We’re told to buy, consume, and waste our time on meaningless things – bread and circuses. Those who ask questions and seek hidden truths, are branded as dangerous while those who remain indifferent and apathetic are congratulated. Finally, we’re told in no uncertain terms to obey, submit, comply, conform, and surrender. 

That this mind manipulation campaign is successful was acknowledged by the father of modern propaganda, Edward Bernays. Said he: 

“There are invisible rulers who control the destinies of millions. It is not generally realized to what extent the words and actions of our most influential public men are dictated by shrewd persons operating behind the scenes. 

“Now, what is still more important, the extent to which our thoughts and habits are modified by authorities. 

“In some departments of our daily life, in which we imagine ourselves free agents, we are ruled by dictators exercising great power. . . . 

“The invisible government tends to be concentrated in the hands of the few because of the expense of manipulating the social machinery which controls the opinions and habits of the masses” (Edward Bernays, Propaganda, 61, 63). 

Bernays further explained: 

“We are governed, our minds molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. . . . 

“Our invisible governors are, in many cases, unaware of the identity of their fellow members of the inner cabinet. . . . 

“Small groups of persons can, and do, make the rest of us think what they please about a given subject” (Bernays, Propaganda, 37, 57). 

Who are these “invisible governors”? Who are these “small groups” and “dictators” who exercise such great power over our minds and lives? I’ve discussed them time and time again. They are, in the final equation, Satanic communists and their complicit followers. Click on the link and read my summary of the Order of Illuminati. Out of this Illuminati conspiracy grew the communist cabal that has destroyed more of humanity than any other system in history. 

There’s no single group that controls everything. Those who believe that a single group rules the earth don’t fully understand the nature of the beast we’re up against. It’s true that the conspiracy is, as JFK called it, “monolithic.” But it’s monolithic only in the sense of its ideology and in the fact that it is Satan who ultimately inspires and empowers those who submit to him. We can thus say we’re up against a conspiracy of ideology. Numerous aspects of that devious ideology are outlined in my articles “The Bible of Communism,” “Five Facts About the Communist Conspiracy You Should Know,” and “Communism is Treason!” 

Just as in They Live, there is a secret society – a network of secret societies, think tanks, foundations, corporations, and financial institutions, to be more accurate – that works tirelessly to put people to sleep and lure them into slavery. This society seeks to figuratively reshape earth’s atmosphere so that only those who comply with their rules of wickedness and who breathe together in their perversions and plots can thrive. It’s a true cult. 

This Kabbalistic cabal is also tampering with the literal atmosphere, polluting our soil, air, water, food, and pharmaceuticals with toxins. They dumb us down through public schools, entertainment, mass media, social media, and fluoride in the water. They make us sick and cull our population with vaccines, psychotropic drugs, radioactive phones, and harmful electro waves that bombard us all day. The human race is suffering a grizzly death of a thousand cuts. 

More importantly, the cabal is initiating society into its evil. More than a war against the earth or humanity, it’s a war against the spiritual plain and against the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As one important figure of the Twentieth Century said: 

“Bolshevism, which is in reality an attack on the world of the spirit, pretends to be intellectual itself. Where circumstances demand, it comes as a wolf in sheep’s clothing. But underneath the false mask which it here and there assumes, there are always the satanic forces of world destruction. And where it has had the opportunity of practising its theories it has created “The Paradise of the Workers and Peasants,” in the shape of a fearful desert of starving and hungering people. If we are to take the word of its doctrine then we find a terrible contradiction between its theory and its practice. Its theory is glowing and grandiose but it carries poison in its attractive gloss. Over against this, what we have from it in reality is terrible and forbidding. This is shown in the millions of sacrifices which have been made in honour of it, through executions with the sword, the axe or the hangman’s rope or hunger. . . . 

“. . . [Bolshevism is a] world disease . . . 

““Murder of individuals, murder of hostages and mass murder are the favourite means applied by Bolshevism to get rid of all opposition to its propaganda. . . . 

“We have thus before our eyes a full picture of this fearful and harrowing mass terrorisation which is only approximately paralleled by even the most bloodcurdling examples of war or revolution that are recorded in the history of the world. This is the actual system of bloodshed and terror and death which is carried out by hysterical and criminal political maniacs who would have it copied in every country and among every people with the same terrorising practices, in so far as they might find the possibility of doing so. . . . 

“Bolshevism is the declared enemy of all nations and of all religions and of all human civilisation. The World Revolution is now, as always, its acknowledged and proclaimed goal” (Joseph Goebbels, speech, September 13, 1935, “Communism With the Mask Off”). 

It was true in 1935 and it’s true now. This conspiracy is the embodiment of “the satanic forces of world destruction.” It’s a frightful “system of bloodshed and terror and death” beyond anything “recorded in the history of the world.” It kills the mind, the body, and the spirit. Wolves in sheep’s clothing are carrying out this war against “all nations” and “all religions,” destroying anything that stands in the way of its brutal power grab. 

A great thinker, J. Reuben Clark, Jr., raised a strong warning voice against Satanic communism. He once described it as an “alien” threat that was foreign to Americanism: 

“This influence is in leadership largely alien, – in birth, or in tradition, or in training and experience, or possessing alien concepts and alien philosophies. With them are some American-born rebel conspirators. These all form a vast army, some 3,000 of whom, handpicked, are said to swarm in Government offices, many in key positions, all ready, able, and willing to take over if their opportunity shall come, or be made” (President J. Reuben Clark, Jr., October 7, 1943, in Jerreld Newquist, ed., Prophets, Principles and National Survival, 221-222).  

It’s so contrary and destructive to human nature that communism may as well be a literal alien ideology transplanted by off-world invaders. A year prior to his statement, Clark was part of a trio which issued another powerful warning: 

“Infidelity, atheism, unchastity, intemperance, civil corruption, greed, avarice, ambition – personal, political, national – are more powerful today than at any other time in the lives of us now living. They are pulling and thrusting us almost at will into new fields of action, new lines of thought. They are shaking the faith, undermining the morals, polluting the lives of the people. They have thrown many so far off balance in all of their activities, economic, social, political, and religious, that they stand in real danger of falling. Satan is making war against all the wisdom that has come to men through their ages of experience. He is seeking to overturn and destroy the very foundations upon which society, government, and religion rest. He aims to have men adopt theories and practices which he induced their forefathers, over the ages, to adopt and try, only to be discarded by them when found unsound, impractical, and ruinous. He plans to destroy liberty and freedom – economic, political, and religious, and to set up in place thereof the greatest, most widespread, and most complete tyranny that has ever oppressed men. He is working under such perfect disguise that many do not recognize either him or his methods. There is no crime he would not commit, no debauchery he would not set up, no plague he would not send, no heart he would not break, no life he would not take, no soul he would not destroy. He comes as a thief in the night; he is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Without their knowing it, the people are being urged down paths that lead only to destruction. Satan never before had so firm a grip on this generation as he has now” (First Presidency message, General Conference, October, 1942). 

This declaration can be read in 2021 without missing a beat. It’s perfectly, chillingly accurate. Everything about this conspiracy is anti-human, anti-peace, anti-prosperity, anti-Liberty, anti-sanity. It’s a full-blown assault on humanity. The officers in this rebellion against God and eternal law are Satanists, occultists, and communists. They hate you, hate your family, hate your Freedom, hate the universe, and hate the God of Creation. 

Ladies and gentlemen, they live! These vicious conspirators exist, walk among us, and are working to enslave us. They’re building a GULAG for me and you to live in. It’s high-tech tyranny – Twenty-First-Century feudalism. It’s demonic. It’s horrifying. And it’s your reality. 

Are we all out of bubble gum yet?

To push back against this cruel conspiracy, we must put on our sunglasses to see properly, lock and load, and take the fight to the ideological invaders. Sitting back and waiting for the right time to do the right thing is wrong. Let J. Edgar Hoover’s words ring in your ears as you go on the offensive: 

“Communism can exist only where it is protected and hidden. The spotlight of public exposure is the most effective means we have to use in destroying the communist conspiracy. Drag that conspiracy into the light! Tear it apart. Reveal the flaws in its philosophy. Keep the pressure on it. Force it into retreat” (J. Edgar Hoover, The Lion, October, 1957).

  1. Hello from the UK.

    Wow! Spot on. The only thing I would say is that one must add Nazism to communism as they came out of the same stable, Germany. If you research you will see what I mean. I did not know this until my wife told me about a book she had read.

    This explained how Germany used the communists to undermine Russia and bring in revolution so that Germany could concentrate on the western front. It almost succeeded in defeating the Allies as a consequence. The USA’s entry into to the war tipped the balance in the allies favour.

    I have written myself about the fear factor. I don’t know if you will really benefit from reading it as you understand so much, but here is my link anyway. I have also done a Covid 19 Summary which explains in part what has been going on. The link is at the bottom of the Fear is the key post.


    Kind regards

  2. I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated this piece. My wife and I watched it when it came out and we immediately thought it was an eye opening metaphor. We watched it with two Birch society members just returned from their missions. They got it. Over the years I have recommended it, often quoting. Hey we are all out of bubblegum. You also struck a chord quoting our first presidency back around 1942. As I am finishing rereading Pres. Benson’s An Enemy Hath Done This, the astounding degree of parallels has been most helpful. Yes, They Live. And the reward is awaiting those who act to the utmost of their abilities. More later….
