Exit From The Matrix: Nature of the Covert Op

by Jon Rappoport

I’ve written a number of different introductions to my mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix.

In this brief one, I want to sketch the basis of the covert op.

Every major covert op has the same concealed objective: “defeat the enemy and thereby gain more control.”

But control over what?

Beyond the usual answers, the root answer is: “control over the mind.”

Why? Because if perception and thought can be channeled, directed, reduced, and weakened, then it doesn’t matter what humans do to resist other types of control. They will always go down the wrong path. They will always operate within limited and bounded territory. They will always ignore their own authentic power.

I’m talking about power that exceeds the “normal” and “average” ability to influence the stream of cause and effect.

The “prison” of cause and effect is a concept that is floated as part of the basic covert op to convince people they are small, diminished, and at the mercy of larger forces.

But underneath it all, humans have the capacity to “jump the chain” and become, as it were, “first causes.”

And not in some minor way.

Unfortunately, the popular view of how this can be accomplished is often rooted in New Age notions: the instantaneous fix; the Disneyesque manifestation; the “surrender to the universe.”

These are psy-op versions of the real thing, floated as part of the overall covert op to engage the gullible among us.

“Jumping the chain” is actually a matter of reversing the op. In other words, instead of accepting the mural of reality that has been created for us, each person creates his own.

This, dare I say it (yes, I do), is a heroic enterprise. And by heroic, I mean: without surrender. Without compromise.

Beyond the covert op, every human has the capacity to act in ways that change the flow of time, the architecture of space, and the sources of energy.

The degree to which an individual believes this is impossible mirrors his acceptance of the basic covert op on planet Earth.

When people speak about “hope for all of us,” they rarely refer to the power of the individual, but that’s where it starts. With the individual. Unchained.

Exit From The Matrix is the realization of those clues, fleshed out, clarified, and embedded in techniques and exercises anyone can do on a daily basis.

What has been called The Matrix is a series of layers. These layers compose what we call Reality. Reality is not merely the consensus people accept in their daily lives. It is also a personal and individual conception of limits. It is a perception that these limits are somehow built into existence. But this is not true.

What I’ve done here is remove the lid on those perceived limits. This isn’t an intellectual undertaking. It’s a way to open up space and step on to a new road, with new power.

Why I Call It The American Federal Republic

 By Anna Von Reitz

Apparently, some members of the military and Mr. Trump need a lesson in American History.
That is hardly surprising, because so much of American History has been hidden, neglected, and buried and deliberately hidden.
But here we are.
I call it the American Federal Republic because the Federal Republic was owned and operated by Americans for Americans.
Specifically, the Federal Republic was the American Federal Subcontractor, owned and operated by the Confederation set up under The Articles of Confederation in 1781.
When the original Confederation failed in 1860, so did the Federal Republic.
Both the American Confederation and the Federal Republic ceased operation and have never been Reconstructed.
The only entities with the power to Reconstruct both the Confederation and the Federal Republic are the States of the Union, and they are only able to act together in international venues (which Reconstruction requires) via the unincorporated Federation of States.
So when I told Trump that the U.S. Military — a British Territorial operation — can’t just occupy “the” Federal Republic without our express agreement and permission, it’s because there is no valid Federal Republic to occupy.
The Federation of States has the authority to create one, but nobody else does.
Put it this way:
There is only one intact unincorporated Holding Company with the provenance and authority and standing to create a new Federal Republic to function as the American Federal Subcontractor.
And if “the” Federal Republic is not owned, operated, and controlled by the Americans, we are being sold another British Bill of Goods, with the Pikers calling some creation of theirs “the” Federal Republic and trying to confuse it with ours — just as they have used semantic deceit and substitution to pull all their other Cuckoo Bird Operations.
We made it clear that that would be a recognizable act of fraud and Act of War, which it would be. So they might as well either: (a) do what is lawful and right and talk to us about getting their contract renewed and reopening an American Federal Republic, or (b) admit that they are nothing but a worthless pack of foreign mercenaries — the British/EU “Raj” trying to bilk us into letting them “represent” us.
Again.

Bureaucratic Madness — in the State Assemblies

 By Anna Von Reitz

Lately. I have seen some really inappropriate and highly detailed snooper-pooper “questionnaires” coming out of some State Assemblies —- these “Getting to Know You” pieces ask questions that are completely and utterly inappropriate, even when vetting Assembly Officers.
I want to warn everyone including those Coordinators who have allowed this. Think about what you are doing, what information is truly necessary, and strictly limit your inquiries accordingly.
Some of the “questionnaires” I’ve seen would pass inspection for induction into the CIA and give you a Top Secret Security Clearance. This is really crazy and invasive stuff. Don’t submit to that kind of interrogation from anyone, ever.
State Assemblies are Public Bodies by definition. They are not private clubs. People don’t have to “apply” or meet any other standard other than —-I am an American born in this country (or a Naturalized Immigrant adopting a State of the Union) and I am claiming my birthright — declared and on the record.
You don’t have to bare your soul to join your State Assembly. You have the unalienable right to privacy! Be offended when people start snooping beyond what is reasonable.
There are just two (2) questions to answer and one action to pursue to be a member of an American State Assembly.
(1) Were you born in this country or Naturalized here as an immigrant? Yes or no?
(2) Are you the man or woman who was born or Naturalized according to the BC or other records? Yes or no?
This is why we ask for Witnesses who can corroborate the fact that you are the baby who was born at such and such a place, etc.
You claim your birthright political status, prove you are an American, and place it on the public record for everyone to see, and that is that. No more to it. You can record your declaration through any State Assembly or through a State of State Land Recording Office or via our International Recorders.
And you are by definition a member of the State Assembly until you decide to move to a foreign country, etc.
There is no special magic to our paperwork, either. Our Living Law Firm has done its best to create a good, solid, foundational declaration using declarations going back to 1779 as examples, but we don’t claim that our paperwork is the only way by which people can declare their political status.
The important elements are:
(1) Where were you born? Give proof. Or, were you Naturalized — in this country for at least seven years without resorting to Public Assistance or committing a felony? Give proof.
(2) A declaration on the public record by Witnesses who can affirm that you are who you say you are.
(3) Publishing your declaration to create a public record.
That’s it.
Now, I can safely say that our Declarations cover the bases and make the proper claims and I can’t guarantee that homemade models do that, but if someone comes up with something that covers 1,2,3 above — they are “recognizable” as Americans and eligible to join the Assembly in their State of the Union.
The so-called Vetting Process for State Officers should similarly be simple and limited to answering two questions:
(1) Do you have a criminal record and if so, for what
crimes?
(2) Do you have commitments or regulatory obligations or financial interests that could represent a conflict of interest?
Again, this is not the FBI and this is not rocket science.
This past week we’ve had a big argument in some States about which “state” or “state of state” Witnesses come from and the answer is, it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter if a Witness is a British Territorial Citizen living in a Territorial State of State or a Municipal citizen of the United States living in FL or NV. Okay?
Think about what you are doing.
A Witness to a fact can be anyone from any place, any political status.
The primary requirement is to think about what you are trying to accomplish and don’t make it difficult with a lot of fearful mumbo-jumbo nonsense and added “requirements”.
Don’t gum things up with nasty, invasive, inappropriate questionnaires and extra added paperwork. Keep things simple. Keep things honest. Period.
Our Law Team spent twenty years grinding it all down to a single page. Get a clue. Making paperwork simple is the goal. The simpler and shorter it is, the better, and the less subject to meddling.
So think twice about what I am going to say to anyone adding to the paperwork burdens of others or to anyone violating their right to privacy for no good reason?

The Secret of Mystery Babylon

 By Anna Von Reitz

Okay, I know this may seem strange, considering all the talk about purported pandemics, bank and currency collapses, wars and rumors of wars—-why should I spend time thinking about or writing about things that happened (or maybe didn’t happen) thousands of years ago?
Because they are still impacting us today.
Because our actual literal salvation depends on knowing the truth.
Because we can’t play without a full deck of cards.
The records related to the teachings of Jesus and the choice of what to include and what to discard as scripture (canon) and much of the interpretation of the teachings of Jesus and his Disciples has been left to the Roman Catholic Church for over 1,600 years.
We have recently discovered the Roman Catholic Church’s role in promoting numerous crimes and criminal fraud schemes that have grossly harmed our government and our people for generations.
This has led us to question everything that the Roman Catholic Church has touched, both sacred and secular.
This investigation unavoidably impacts all Christians and all Christian Churches presently on Earth.
A key part of the fraud practiced against our American Government has been identity theft and substitution of one thing for another using semantic deceits and similar name confusions.
So, if this was their Modus Operandi in the secular realm, why wouldn’t it also be their Modus Operandi in the sacred realm?
We begin our examination by looking for signs of identity theft, substitutions of one thing for another, and semantic deceit.
The first thing that pops up is the name used to refer to “Jesus”. We know for a fact that his actual name would have been “Yeshuah” or, in English, “Joshua” and it would have most likely been spelled as “Ieshuah” or “Ioshua” because the letter “J” wasn’t even used at the time and the letter “Y” as a substitute for “I” was just gaining traction.
So, right from the get-go the name “Jesus” is somewhat dodgy. It’s certainly not spelled as it would have been back then and appears to be a Latin approximation for the Greek I?sous, which was their transliteration from Hebrew Yesh?a` which is a shortened form of Yeh?sh?a` meaning “God is help” and “Rescuer” —- which all boils down in English to the name Joshua.
In the attempt to be as honest as we can under such a circumstance, we will call “Jesus” by the best name we’ve got in modern English: Joshua, which, as it happens, is the same name as Joshua, the leader who came after Moses to lead the Hebrews into the Promised Land.
Note — it was the Promised Land under Moses, but Possession of the Land came under Joshua. This is not a trivial observation related to our present circumstance.
Next, we come to another odd issue with the name and title — “Jesus Christ”.
Christ means “Anointed One”.
And that then leads to the question — when, where, and by whom was Joshua “anointed”?
Anointment has a particular meaning — “an ointment” — means pouring oil on someone. So, when did this happen to Joshua?
Just before his death, Mary Magdalene poured oil on him— a lavishly expensive ointment.
This is the only incident of this kind recorded, so we must accept that this was the “anointing” that made him the “Anointed One” and that, in turn, led to him being called “Christ” and to the entire religion being called “Christianity”.
What?
How could that incident be so completely overwhelmingly important that the whole religion was founded on it?
I was in inescapable mental free fall when I realized that.
In ancient times, priests were anointed with oil, but this anointing of Jesus could not have anything to do with the Jewish priesthood, which is inherited and always kept within the temple confines.
What else do we know? Joshua himself said that Mary Magdalene was preparing his body for burial.
So, think about this — she was anointing him as a priest in anticipation of his death?
That sounds like a Death Cult priesthood, and indeed, when you dig down deeper, it turns out that the Baal Worshipers of Samaria and the Galilee region where Jesus grew up, had prostitutes anoint their priests with oil as part of their consecration to Baal.
Mary Magdalene was a former prostitute. We don’t know if she was a temple prostitute or not, but, if she was anointing Jesus with oil as a priest of Baal, that question gets resolved.
And, faced with this startling but logical progression, we check some other points.
Christ is not a name that Jesus ever called himself.
Christ is not a name ever listed in the long recitation of names found in Isaiah, either.
The word “Christ” doesn’t even appear in the Bible. It’s added. It’s applied afterward like a snood on a Chevy, and the question remains — why?
The whole “Christ” thing is dodgy title stuff —just like President of the United States versus President of the United States of America, persons versus people, and so on.
Has our beloved Rabbi’s identity been stolen and misrepresented using semantic deceit? Does this whole “Christ” narrative element create a different, secret storyline?
Has Joshua been passed off as a priest of Baal and ourselves been misrepresented as Baal Worshipers via the label “Christ” and “Christian”?
There is no sane reason that we should call him “Christ” or ourselves “Christians” based on an anointing by Mary Magdalene.
Her anointing is hardly the centerpiece of our “Christian” religion. In all the years that I was a faithful Lutheran I never once heard a sermon on this topic or any discussion of it at all. It was just there, part of the Gospel record.
But — there it is, inexplicably front and center, the fact responsible for the name of the whole religion, but never discussed?
When we look at this squarely, and everything that later happened, and our own circumstance now, there are only one logical possibility.
Mary Magdalene was the High Priestess of Baal who met Joshua and converted to his Way, making him her priest —-and bringing all her followers with her.
This is the most reasonable conjecture on many levels, as it explains things that are otherwise mysterious.
For example, in the years immediately after this, the once-mighty temples of Baal disappeared and the Baal Worshipers, too.
Baal Worship vanished in the Levant, and gradually disappeared from the known world over the course of a couple hundred years. And what rose instead, was “Christianity”.
That’s some powerful circumstantial evidence supporting the Baal Connection underlying Christianity.
It would also explain many otherwise inexplicable things.
Like the hatred that some Roman Catholic priests openly express toward Mary Magdalene. These men are not kind about their objections to her association with Joshua, but they decline to explain why, beyond her identity as a prostitute.
I once had the temerity to say, “But, he consorted with fishermen and tax collectors and whores. He came to rescue the sick. Why was she any worse or different?”
Crickets from the Jesuit Scholars.
This conjecture that Mary Magdalene was the High Priestess is also supported by the way her name appears in ancient texts as “The Magdalene” — apparently, “Magdalene” is a title, not a name. You still hear people call her “The Magdalene” in exactly the same way as you hear them refer to “The Pope” and “The President”.
It explains the tradition that Mary Magdalene had red hair — the Amorite giants, the Nephilim, had red hair, and they were Baal Worshipers.
This also provides a plausible explanation (otherwise lacking) for what changed the adoring crowds of Palm Sunday into the ferocious mobs calling for the release of Barabbas in preference to Joshua.
What could Joshua do –in a single week— that would adequately explain that change?
Being anointed as a priest of Baal would do it.
And what, other than the rather paltry payment of thirty pieces of silver, would cause Judas Iscariot to —all of a sudden, out of the blue— betray him to the Sanhedrin and the Romans?
Judas didn’t need the money. He was a Pharisee.
And what about the comment Joshua made at the Last Supper to Judas, telling him to go do what he had to do? Had Judas been instructed to do this? Or was this comment to Judas related to some earlier unresolvable dispute over the “anointing” and its implications?
If, as the evidence seems to suggest, Christianity represents a mass conversion of Baal Worshipers to the teachings of Joshua in the centuries leading up to the Council of Nicea, —with a few Jews thrown in, we’ve got a very, very different picture of what “Christianity” is and how it came to be.
Many aspects of the Roman Catholic Church also snap into view.
Baal Worshipers worship idols. That neatly explains all the statues of saints, medals, coins, icons, etc. Their worship of Mammon (money) is just an extension of the basic idolatry.
Baal Worshipers practice magic, both black and white — that neatly explains all the magical symbols littering Catholic churches and secular buildings like the Pentagon. It also explains the Church’s adoption of pagan holidays like Yule and Samhain.
Baal Worshipers practice deceit and honor the Father of All Lies — what more outrageous lie, than to pretend to honor the teachings of Joshua?
Baal Worship is a Death Cult, which neatly explains the Roman Catholic crucifix. If Joshua is risen, why do they keep him forever nailed to the cross and dead as a proverbial door nail, too?
Nothing like the constant reminder of Death and the idea that Death is the ultimate winner, hidden behind the image of the crucifix, to keep Baal Worshipers tuned up and stealing and killing and fornicating like there’s no tomorrow —- because in their view, there is no tomorrow and no reason to be good.
Just rip and tear and get what you can, however you can.
If that means pretending to be “Christians” or “Republicans” or “Jews” or whatever else, they will always say fine, so be it. One good deceit deserves another.
And that also explains why so many Christians speak with their lips and don’t walk with their feet or give with their hands, doesn’t it?
Consciously or unconsciously, for millions of “Christians” it’s not about Joshua or his teachings. It’s about insinuating oneself into confidence and trust, gaining social position, making money, and appearing to be upright and moral — with the emphasis on the word “appearing”.
Without being.
Just like magic. Just like the Templars who disappeared. Just like the Dutch East India Company that disappeared. Just like the Trojan and Spanish wealth disappeared and just like the wealth of America is disappearing, while all eyes are focused on a man-made pandemic — and nobody is prosecuting those responsible for creating and releasing Covid 19. No, the perpetrators are being venerated as experts and handed control instead of a jail sentence. Go figure.
Heck, go all the way —— just like Joshua disappeared from the tomb. The Baal Worshipers probably ate him, thinking that they would gain his powers by doing so.
Cannibalism and blood oaths are part of Baal Worship, and when we lift our heads and look, what do we see in the “Christian” churches?
Millions of people mindlessly repeating the Apostle’s Creed and then sealing their oath with “blood”, eating his body and drinking his blood in a symbolic act of cannibalism and never questioning or thinking a thing about it.
The Roman Catholic Church went so far as to espouse the Doctrine of Transubstantiation — the teaching that the wine in the communion cup turns to actual blood and the communion wafer turns into flesh.
And then, there is the Veneration of Mary. Which Mary is it?
Faced with this Apocalyptic conjecture and all the evidence, what can we do?
What can we think, except that those devotees of Baal Worship who were embedded in the early Roman Catholic Church, did what they do best — and distorted the truth into lies? Added and subtracted from the written records to give people a tweaked version of the Gospels?
And profited themselves from it, too. Indulgences, Baptismal Certificates traded on their own Black Market, Birth Certificate Bonds…. but never any real Jubilees.
I know that the Romans suppressed Baal Worship sometime in the years following their invasion of England, and did a ferocious job of it, resulting in the virtual extermination of the Druid priesthood and the systematic pollution of wells throughout the occupied territory with iron rods.
According to Roman belief, the Fey and Nephilim are allergic to iron, the primary atomic metallic ion in the middle of the Hemoglobin molecule. Perhaps it alters their blood by substituting iron for some other element, similar to the way Sodium substitutes itself for Potassium? Anyone who knows for sure, raise your hand….
Did this same suppression and persecution go on throughout the Empire?
It would take a better student of Rome and British History to tell us—but if the crackdown on the Druids was part of a more general crackdown on Baal Worship, it would provide a mighty motivation for Baal Worshipers to convert to Christianity during the first three centuries following the “Birth of Christ”— which, ironically, means the Death of Joshua, in the same way that we have been “murdered” as Americans when we are registered as British Territorial U.S. Citizens.
We can reject Baal Worship wherever it hides, and we can reject this ancient abomination with all our hearts, souls, and minds.
We can come out of Babylon. We can refuse to be part of these “churches” and leave the tainted “Christian” label behind.
We can form new Joshuan Fellowships to honor the love and the teachings of Joshua. We can embrace him in a humble way, day to day. No need for phallic cathedral spires and womb-like cathedral domes.
Moses, representing a mixture of Egyptian magic and Hebrew confusion, wandered around the desert for forty years, inflicting his own condition on all his followers.
It wasn’t until Joshua stood up and said — I don’t care what all the rest of you do, but for me and my house, we will serve the Lord —- that the Promised Land became reality.
Let me submit that we have been similarly confused and kept wandering about in a “wilderness” of doubt and deception, hardly knowing our right foot from our left.
We’ve been enslaved in the Land of the Free. We’ve lived our lives as Americans and been misidentified as Federal “citizens” instead. We’ve been faithful followers of Joshua and been mislabeled as “Christians”.
We’ve all been defrauded — not only materially, but spiritually — and by the same parties, too.
The evidence is right in front of our noses.
I invite all you Bible Scholars and Linguists and Church Apologists to pile on. Come all those who have spent their lives studying the Dark Ages and the history of Rome and the history of Britain and France. I’d be interested in what “Woo” Clif High might add to this?
Martin Luther and I and J.R.R. Tolkien and Frank Baum are not the only ones who smell the Baal Rat. Or was it the Balrog?
I wish it to be explicitly understood that this is not being said in any spirit of spite or hatred or meant as any indictment against Catholic people or Christian people in general – it’s not. 99.9% of them are victims right along with the rest of us.
No, this is being said in the same way that your Grandma might observe a rotten tree leaning over your house roof. Take heed. This is, I believe, the secret of Mystery Babylon.

Pentagon Retreats From Transparency At Guantanamo Bay, Builds New Secretive Room

If Benjamin Fulford is correct, there is something going on at Gitmo.  From dailycaller.com:

The Pentagon is building a new $4 million war court chamber at Guantanamo Bay that will not allow for public access, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

The new courtroom is expected to begin holding proceedings in 2023. Two military judges will be able to hold proceedings at the same time in the new chamber, and it will hold smaller cases, the NYT reported.

While members of the public will not be allowed inside the courtroom, they’ll be able to watch the proceedings in a separate building via video, and on a 40-second delay. This separate room is described as a “virtual gallery with multiple camera angles simultaneously displayed,” according to Office of Military Commissions spokesman Ron Flesvig.

It was designed prior to President Joe Biden taking office, the NYT reported. One of the current administration’s goals is to completely empty and close the Guantanamo prison. (RELATED: Biden Administration Sends 1st Guantanamo Prisoner Back To Home Country)

The new courtroom is yet another example of a lack of transparency at Guantanamo Bay. In recent years, photography has been barred in areas once commonly shown to visitors, and places like empty wartime prison facilities are inaccessible to journalists, according to the NYT.

Guantanamo Bay already has an existing courtroom that opened in 2008. Members of the public can watch proceedings live at this chamber, though they also hear audio on a 40-second delay. This gives time for those in charge to mute comments deemed classified, the NYT noted.

Bigger cases, like the five men accused of planning the September 11, 2001 attacks, will be held in the 2008 courtroom. Despite being accessible by Guantanamo Bay standards, there have been complaints about this court’s secrecy as well. A lawyer representing Encep Nurjaman, the lead defendant charged in two Indonesian terrorist bombings, has made complaints regarding how restrictive this court is.

“I’ve observed trials in Mongolia that were more transparent than this,” the lawyer James R. Hodes said according to the NYT.
