I would like to talk about gaslighting. Only fairly recently
did I learn the term. I was talking to clergy friends maybe two and half years
ago now. We would talk candidly about our experiences as pastors. I was talking
about how I was made to feel that I was doing a crappy job in church, that I
was aware of whispering behind my back that I wasn’t doing what I was supposed
to do and so forth. My clergy friend simply said, “Gaslighting.” He explained
that is when a group or an individual make you feel crazy or unworthy or bad
about yourself. That it is all your fault.
I was grateful that he named something that was true. It
happened enough to clergy that there was a name for it and clergy knew it
(although I didn’t know the term at the time, I did know the concept).
Since then, I have heard and used the term often. Medical
News Today offers this definition:
“Gaslighting is a form of psychological
abuse where a person or group makes someone question their sanity, perception
of reality, or memories. People experiencing gaslighting often feel confused,
anxious, and unable to trust themselves.
The term gaslighting
derives from the 1938 play and 1944 film Gaslight, in which a husband
manipulates his wife into thinking she has a mental illness by dimming their
gas-fueled lights and telling her she is hallucinating.”
Gaslighting. Is it the same word when applied to a
population of people as the victim? Gaslighting may be the best term to
describe the collective psychological attack on humanity that we are
Gaslighting. Making someone think they are crazy.
Gaslighting. Making someone think something is their fault
when it isn’t.
Gaslighting. With clear intent, making people feel anxious,
confused, and unable to trust themselves.
Let’s think of some recent examples. Recent examples that
It is powerful, authoritative entities that do this.
Controlling personalities. Narcissistic personalities do this. Gaslighting is
also a tactic that is taught to people say Facebook fact-checkers to demean
people on the internet. Nearly every day, so-called “fact-checkers” interrupt
your conversations correcting what you said. It is unbelievably Owellian that
this is happening. They are trying to make you as the author or any reader not
believe what you posted, as if their fact-checking is absolute divine truth.
You are crazy and wrong if you don’t believe this. Most of this fact-checking
is done by bots and algorithms, not even people.
This fact-checking is of course selective. They only
fact-check heresies in the narrative that their bosses or programmers do not
want heard. For example, say anything about the needle and you get the
fact-check that the vaccines are all safe and effective. But not just vaccines.
After awhile you learn the narrative that they are pushing and begin to realize
that if you are being fact-checked, you are getting close to the target.
Assuming you do have your facts right.
Fact-checking is a form of gaslighting. Gaslighting as
tactic. You find this in the Facebook comment section of a news channel. Every
story has as many people as needed to come out and stop any honest questions
with ridicule or passive-aggressive comments. Millions of dollars, maybe tens
of millions of dollars are spent on paid accounts and bots to reinforce the
narrative on these news outlets. The affect is gaslighting. Making people doubt
themselves or shy away from expressing their own opinions or honest questions.
They are hostile comments. They are comments that try to shame people. All
kinds of different strategies are used by these commenters. But the goal is to
make people doubt their own selves and their own experiences.
For instance, I remember seeing a bunch of chemtrails over
Portland a couple of years ago. It was quite obvious that we were being
sprayed. I can’t recall exactly where it was that this discussion was happening
on-line, but immediately, the authoritative, “I am smarter than anyone else
here” commenter would fact-check and shame anyone who would say that what they
saw in the sky was anything but planes doing their natural thing.
You know this experience. It took me a long time to realize
that many, many, many of the accounts on Facebook are fake and are for that
purpose. Once I realized that, I felt two things. First, depression at one more
instance of the money and pressure constantly poured into silencing us. We are
up against a powerful, well-trained enemy. But secondly, it also made me
realize that these are not real people. They are fake people, literally in some
cases, bots, but also even if real, fake, because they are paid accounts. That
second realization was freeing. Once you ignore their noise, there are real
people asking questions, and more than I thought. Now I just block them. This
is war. They are enemies. Anyone who puts a mocking emoji on my post, I block
them. Anyone who comments in line with the narrative, I block. I am not
conversing with them. They are enemy. I may toy with them. But I block them. I
am conversing with real people who have been gaslit and yet still are waking
Here is an example of gaslighting.
We are coming up on the 20th anniversary of
Anyone with two eyes can see that World Trade Center Towers
One and Two, the twin towers were blown
to kingdom come in pyroclastic dust clouds. Another skyscraper, the 47
story World Trade Center Building Seven, came down in classic controlled
demolition at 5:20 in the afternoon. Anyone who looks at a video of it can see
Except that you can’t see that. You can’t see it because you
have been gaslit for twenty years by the best gaslighters on Earth. If you
didn’t know the story, and just saw the buildings, you would know they were
blown up with explosives. But because we were trained in the government’s
orthodoxy from the very first minutes, and shamed, cajoled, threatened, and mocked,
since then, by every institution, media outlet, and government agency we have
been, as a whole, with a few exceptions, gaslit on a major scale.
The gaslighters, ultimately those responsible for the false
flag of 9/11, were able to convince the American people that what you see with
your own eyes cannot be trusted. Experts need to tell you what really happened.
This psychological tactic has worked.
What else? Cannabis and hemp. For a century, cannabis has
been framed as a horrible drug. It was made illegal around the world. Why? Hemp
is a valuable product. It is high energy and it is able to be made into many
products, like oil is. It was seen to be a threat to the oil industry as well
as the pharmaceutical industry. So people have been gaslit that cannabis is
bad. I recommend a documentary by Massimo Mazucco. It is somewhat dated in
regards to the current legal status of cannabis in some states, but it tells
the history of the gaslighting against the people regarding this natural plant
that has co-evolved with humanity for millions of years. His film is called,
“The True History of Marijuana.” He has
made a number of important documentaries including films about cancer, 9/11,
and even the moon landing. I interviewed him about his film American Moon a
couple of years ago on KBOO in Portland.
The more I look into this, and I am just a newbie, I am
finding that we have been are being gaslit in major ways about virtually
everything. Let’s get specific again.
What if you convince a healthy person that she is sick when,
in fact, she isn’t sick? Even though she feels healthy, she has no symptoms;
nonetheless, she doubts her very health because you wouldn’t lie to her, would
you? That is called gaslighting.
This is one of the central pillars of this scamdemic that
has been used to destroy us these past 18 months. Asymptomatic transmission.
Meaning, you have no symptoms, but you could be sick anyway. Because of this
gaslighting, the whole lockdown extravaganza, masking, social isolation, all of
it, is able to be done. If people trust their own bodies, their own
experiences, their own senses, they would know if they are sick or not. But the
gaslighting, because it comes from a massive authoritarian arsenal of
propaganda, the experts, people are psychologically attacked and are anxious,
confused, and doubt their own senses. After a while, people believe it and even
defend it. The gaslighting becomes the Stockholm Syndrome, where people are so
brain-addled that they take the side of their oppressor.
Back to gaslighting.
No one goes to the doctor and says, “I don’t have any
symptoms, Doc, but I may have the flu.” But now, you don’t need symptoms. You
take a test. An ominous take a stick up your nose almost into your brain test
to show you have the disease. Dr. Annie
Bukacek, on my show three weeks ago, showed how the PCR is unreliable, that is
putting it mildly. Fake is the way to say it properly. It is a scam. The
“cases” are not of sick people but positive results of a fake test.
But it doesn’t end there. Children and adults have been
gaslit into believing that children are potentially contagious with a disease
they do not have, and cannot even get, but they can spread it.
This is all absurd on the face of it. It is a blatant in your face lie, but it
has been foisted upon us by the media, primarily, so that most people, the vast
majority have been gaslit into submission.
We have been shut down by gaslighting. People wear muzzles
because they are afraid that you are sick when you are not. They are gaslit
further by being told that they wear their masks for you. If you don’t wear it
for others, you are selfish. If you make an objection to the governmental
actions based on the Bill of Rights, or any fundamental human right truth, you
are singled out as a selfish individual, even as you are fighting for the
individual rights of those who participate in the government’s gaslighting.
Individual rights are everyone’s individual rights.
The gaslighting is pervasive. Everything is thrown at you if
you stand up for your own self and your own experience and your own expression.
The namecalling, oh my gosh. You are an idiot! You don’t believe in science!
Where is your medical degree? You don’t love Jesus!
Now it is at a level of mass insanity. The world is a very
dangerous place right now. After 18 months the gaslighting has now turned people’s
minds into cement. Now the Covid Psyop is perhaps as cemented into
consciousness as the 9/11 Psyop or the Cannabis Psyop or even the Climate
I was on the other side of this for a while, until I began
to realize that it is a similar thing. Those pushing the narrative have an
agenda for its solution. The world is messed up because your carbon footprint
is too big. You eat meat. You drive too big of a car. Whatever. It is you who
are responsible for the wildfires and the hot temperatures and the violent
storms. The only solution is to have the experts solve the problem for you. We
are being gaslit into thinking that everyday people are destroying the planet
and in a very weird way that only supposed scientists can figure out.
Part of what is consistent in gaslighting is that so-called
science and experts have the truth and you do not. Gaslighting is based on
fascism. It is based on authoritarianism. It is based on abuse.
From my perspective, that is all it is, but it is mine and I
will express it. From my perspective, climate change is a scam. We are being
gaslit by it. The real problem is energy contraction, namely Peak Oil. We have
been on the downslope of conventional oil production for at least ten years. We
have hit energy limits and are collapsing. I recommend the film, “End of
Suburbia” but not the one on-line. Get the full version. People to recommend
include James Howard Kunstler, John Michael Greer, Richard Heinberg, and
But back to gaslighting. The connection between the climate
change solution and the covid solution is eerily similar. Austerity. Stay home.
Less driving. Less flying. Less contact with others. Less use of energy. New
cars are not being made. Agricultural equipment is not being made. I paid the
other day $96 for two sheets of plywood. Construction materials, when you can
get them, are three times what they were before this scamdemic. It has nothing
to do with a virus. That is the gaslighting. It is the so-called response to
the virus, a response that has been planed for a long time. And now, eat less meat. In fact, the
controllers will be manufacturing some nice insect burgers for you. Why?
Because cows fart and are creating methane that is warming the planet.
All of this is done through lies. Gaslighting is a lie. But
it is a particularly insidious lie as it makes people doubt their own reality.
It takes your humanity away from you. You are sick. You are sick until proven
healthy and you will never be proven healthy, because you could have just
picked up the covid right now.
Will people ever wake up to this?
What I mean essentially, is the gaslighting regarding this
covid thing. The other issues I am exploring as I learn. I am not insisting
that you accept everything I say. I don’t insist at all. I don’t care what you
believe or don’t believe. I don’t want to imply that to get the concept of
gaslighting and in particular the gaslighting regarding Covid that you have to
accept all the other examples that I think are also gaslighting.
Back to the basics. I hope to make a successful impression
that gaslighting is the central psychological operation used against all of us
by the billionaires controlling us. The pillar of this scam is based upon
believing that everyone is sick when they don’t have any symptoms. That is the
scam in a nutshell.
That you are sick until proven healthy. Unless you wear your
muzzle, unless you take the needle, you are hurting other people. That is
gaslighting. It is a lie.
Unless you wear your muzzle, unless you take the needle,
unless you isolate yourself from others, you are preventing society from
getting back to normal. That is gaslighting. It is a lie.
If you say things that challenge the narrative of the
authorities that you hear on “the news” you are crazy. You are wrong. You are a
conspiracy theorist. That is gaslighting. It is a lie.
We know how to take care of ourselves when we are sick.
Nothing magically changed in the world to change that. But those in authority
act as though it did and are doing everything in every institution possible to
make you think that is the case. That there is an invisible sickness that you
must believe you have. It is gaslighting.
The cure, in my opinion, is to ask yourself, are you sick or
not? I am not. If I do get sick. I will stay home. I won’t sneeze on you.
This is all a scam. The world has been shut down for this.
Now the variants. Well, do you think these variants, to the
extent that they exist, might actually be reactions from the injections
themselves? The media is pushing out fear porn every ten seconds. When that
happens, the default should be, “Bullcrap.” They are lying. They are
Does that mean that no one is getting sick? No, I am not
saying that. There are biological
agents. I think the US attacked Iran with them for sure. There are likely many
of these agents that can be used and are used to attack people and make them
sick. Think of all the crap everywhere that is making us sick. It will get
worse. Now, people are getting injected with poisons. They are having adverse
reactions to them.
We are told that it is the unvaccinated that are filling up
the hospitals. Well, I am not so sure about that. Especially as I have seen
reports that people with just one jab are considered unvaccinated. They are not
fully vaccinated. So therefore they are unvaccinated. In my accounting, they
have still been injected and that injection could be the cause of the illness.
I don’t know. Who knows? Who knows what is really happening
in those hospitals?
As I see it, this is the collapse of civilization and the
rearranging of our human systems. The Great Reset. Check out my interview with
Tessa Lena. She is writing some great stuff on the Great Reset. Same with
Michael Rectenwald, also on my show recently.
But the tactic that is consistent, in my observation, is
Making you doubt your own self, senses, experiences, and
expressions. Gaslighting steals your humanity from you. It browbeats you. It
You have to keep telling yourself:
I know what I see, hear, taste, smell, touch, experience. I
will not be gaslit. I cannot stop people from trying to gaslight me. I can’t
stop them from saying stuff that isn’t true, but I don’t need to internalize
it. It isn’t real. I know who I am. I may be wrong about some things. I can change
my mind. I can research for myself. I do not have to be told what is
authoritative and what is not. I don’t have to be told what is a reliable
source and what is not. I don’t have to be fact-checked. I can figure these
things out for myself, thank you. If you are interested in exploring with me,
well freedom loves company.
Gaslighting is a spiritual attack. It is an attack on our
soul. It is important to do good stuff for your soul. It is good to internalize
love and peace and joy. It is good to internalize
courage. It is good to internalize truth. It is good to hang out, in person,
and online as well with people who do not gaslight you. Don’t let people call
you crazy. Keep a safe distance from them. They are not healthy for you.
Sadly the divisions that are constantly being thrown at us
are dividing families and friends. This is not about health. Healthy
authorities who cared about actual health would never do this kind of stuff. A
media corporation, a president, a governor, a doctor, who cares about you, does
not lie to you with all of this fear porn and then scapegoat those who question
it as awful people.
We are in for what James Howard Kunstler calls a long
emergency. The authorities will be throwing panic after panic after panic upon
us. The road is dangerous and bumpy and long. It won’t be over with some
dramatic nuclear bomb next year, at least I don’t think. We are in for a long
transformation. While dangerous, it does not mean we should live in fear.
We are going to die, someday. Until then, let us live.
This really is my point. Don’t let anyone gaslight you.
You are good. You are beautiful. You are healthy. You are a
carrier of joy and goodness and truth and these bastards are not going to take
Gaslighting is deception.
Spirituality conquers deception in a few important ways.
Fear is not from God. Fear is from the Deceiver. These
Serpents feed off of our fear. There is nothing to fear. They can kill us.
That’s it. They can kill the body, not the soul. We will die anyway at some
point. Let us die for Christ. Let us die for Allah. Let us die because it is
better to die than be a slave. Banish fear from your life. When you feel
afraid, find your Bible. Find your Qur’an. Pray. Breathe. Breathe in and out.
“I am not afraid. God is near.”
From the Qur’an:
Do you think that you could enter paradise without having
suffered like those [believers] who passed away before you? Misfortune and
hardship befell them, and so shaken were they that the apostle, and the
believers with him, would exclaim, “When will God’s succor come?”
O, verily, God’s succor is [always] near!
From Psalm 46:
God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble with its tumult.
Feeling afraid? Pray it. Doesn’t seem to work? Pray it
again. Pray away the fear.
Second: Stay away from the media.
It is programming designed to mess you up. Know that. It is
enemy propaganda. Purify yourself from it. It is everywhere. Social media is
controlled by the enemy, too. All of it belongs to the enemy. All media. Don’t
spend too much time on the screens. We have to use it, but it belongs to the
enemy. Know that. Be careful. Don’t spend so much time in it that you get
burned. Don’t listen to the smooth-talking celebrities or politicians, no
matter how much you like them. They are tools of the enemy. This is all
of thumb that I mentioned last week. Anyone who is unable to be
truthful about 9/11 cannot be trusted. They either haven’t done the research or
they are lying about it or they are so deceived that they are worthless.
Three: Instead, spend your time researching what is real.
Here are some names to search through Duck Duck Go on your
Brave browser. There are more than this list. There are people out there
searching for what is true and reporting it to you. These are a few that I
This is not an exhaustive list. They are people I know.
Watch their videos. Read their articles. I post a lot of
stuff on my Facebook page from different sources. I will do so until it is
deleted and until I am deleted.
We are being erased. However, the truth is rising. We need
Don’t believe everything. Discern for yourself. Be strong.
Four: Know who your friends are and who the enemy is.
This is war. Be careful. Know who your friends are. They are
few. Know who the enemy is. Most people are computer programs. The government
presses ENTER and people stand in line, put on a mask, and snitch on their
neighbors. They work for the enemy. The enemy is the one who imposed this
lockdown. Remember, we did not ask for this. We did not discuss this. This was
imposed upon us.
Five: Know that you have a purpose.
It is no accident that you are here now. It is no accident
that you are hearing this or watching it or reading it. This is the apocalypse.
You are alive in the midst of it. You need to be strong. You need to be a
Six: Take risks.
Take the risks you can to live like a human being. I cannot
tell you what to do. You will have to figure that out. But meeting with a
community can help.
1) Do Not Fear. 2) Stay Away from the Media. 3) Research What is Real. 4) Know Your Friends and Your Enemy. 5) Know You Have a Purpose. 6) Take Risks
You didn’t sign up for this. I get it. This got dumped on
The best I see it is that you and I are Eternal Consciousness having
a particular experience. When we identify so closely with the experience
that we cannot free ourselves from our emotions, we need to remember who we are
spiritually. We need to meditate, pray, journal, exercise, do whatever it takes
to realize that we have a body but we are not our body. We have emotions but we
are not our emotions. We have thoughts but we are not our thoughts. We can step
back from them and realize that reality. We are from above. We are part of the
eternal. We are of God. One day we shall return. We will ascend like Jesus
One of the practices that has been taken from us, perhaps
the most important practice, is to gather physically and share our experience.
We have to take that back. Get together physically, with people you love, and
be human. Touch. Hug. Embrace. Pray. Weep. Laugh.
That is the church, the Greek word is ekklesia, the physical
gathering of people.
As a pastor who is interested in scholarly things, my interest throughout my ministry was with the figure of Jesus. What was Jesus? Who was Jesus? I followed the scholars who were searching for the historical Jesus, that is what can be known about the person of Jesus, as opposed to the theological Jesus or more precisely the Jesus of Creed.
The views range widely from 1) Jesus being mostly what the gospels say he was, to 2) the gospels provide little information and are mostly legend, to 3) Jesus didn’t exist at all. I studied the so-called Gnostic gospels, the Qur’an and whatever people said about Jesus.
The scholars and their fans were quite passionate about what they knew and suspected, and often, sadly, in my opinion, were less than gracious to people who had in their view, wrong points of view.
It was a fascinating study and fruitful really in my ministry as people in my churches were interested in this kind of thing as well. The study of the historical Jesus, including reading all the varieties of Jesus was helpful to me in navigating a spirituality.
I opened myself to a variety of views, trying them on to see what fit. I don’t think I found the answer, but I did find a deepened awareness for spiritual literature and for the person of Jesus, however elusive he might be.
What I am finding is that the debate among skeptics regarding COVID reminds me of the historical Jesus debate.
Is the virus Sars Cov 2 and the resulting illness COVID 19 what the media and our institutions say it is? Most skeptics are skeptical of the powers who under the banner of “science” that looks to many like “authoritarianism” have the corner on orthodoxy, which means straight words, straight thinking, or right thinking. They promote it and enforce it. There is no doubt what everyone must think, believe, and do regarding COVID 19.
So they are wrong for the very fact that they don’t allow debate. There are many scientists, doctors, and smart regular people who question the orthodox narrative, but are censored.
So the orthodox position has problems not only in its content but in its method of suppressing debate.
But if Sars Cov 2 and in particular, COVID 19 is not a disease that originated from a wild bat and is so ferocious that the world must be locked down and everyone must lose their freedoms and rights and engage in dubious behaviors to prevent its spread, such as wear masks on their faces, avoid other people, and take experimental injections, then what is it? What is COVID 19?
The skeptics are not on the same page.
Some say that this virus is a bioweapon that accidentally escaped from a Chinese lab.
Others say the virus is a bioweapon that the US Deep State created and released to attack China and Iran and it then blewback upon the world.
Others say, it is mostly a media creation—a collection of symptoms labelled as COVID, symptoms that resemble a cold, flu, or a respiratory disease, but in and of itself really is nothing.
Others say it is the flu, rebranded.
Others say it is a natural virus in a large family of viruses that we deal with all the time, this happens to be more severe for those who are ill or elderly.
Still others question the existence of viruses altogether and say that what are called viruses are really exosomes, our own body’s response to an outside pathogen.
Other views combine elements of the above.
Others, and I find myself sympathetic here, is that COVID 19 is a mythical collection (think in terms of sacred myth) of smaller events, perhaps unrelated, that have been manipulated and collected and narrativized. So for example, it is quite likely that the US deep state attacked China and Iran with a bioweapon. Does that mean that what is called COVID 19 by the media and governments and especially the response by the same – really the same thing as what might have been released? It may have started there, and it may have made people sick and contributed to their deaths, but it has also metastasized into a full-blown myth, particularly in regards to the response to it by authoritarian governments around the world.
It is like historical Jesus research in that the challenge is to separate the myth from the man, or the myth from the virus, and it depends a great deal on your perspective about what is myth and what is real.
It is very important that we get this right. What we think of it, directs our response. For example, what should we worry about: the virus (especially if it is a bioweapon and the geopolitics of this) or the response (lockdowns, restriction of rights, etc.) or the injection?
Your answer will depend upon what you think of the historical Covid.
In the debates over the historical Jesus, it appeared that scholars and their fans spent their time defending their pet theories. Evidence brought forth from those with different views was often dismissed or relegated to minor status, while one’s own evidence was given prominence. I guess that is the way it goes for most things.
I also found it distressing that people were in different camps and were often quite hostile to others, not always, but more often than I found desirable.
This is my point. This is sadly true with the covid skeptics. They are ruthless to each other at times, calling each other controlled opposition or disinfo agents, or worse. It is all very unpleasant.
My hope is that we can be open to a variety of views and be discerning and polite and have uncensored debate. We live in a time in which all skeptics are being erased. The orthodox want it all. We need to ban together even as we disagree over certain aspects of this. As I see it, we are being purposefully confused and divided. It is true that we are being deceived with disinformation. But we don’t always know what is and what isn’t, especially in an area that few people really know that well, in fact, even experts do not seem to agree on basic things.
This is a psyop. That is a guarantee. We are the experiment. Don’t get caught up in squabbles or envy. Seek the truth, even when, and especially when, you find evidence that challenges your pet theory.
