Tiny, Tiny Ripples of Hope

Please note that I am going to be writing more frequently at Substack. I will also still post here, but would like to make Substack the primary outlet for my articles. Please consider subscribing: https://donaldjeffries.substack.com/

I get weary of constantly posting pessimistic thoughts. I try to summon the Frank Capra-part of my personality, but it’s been overwhelmed by a deluge of Orwellian tyranny. It can’t break past the Plandemic. Or the never-ending lockdown. Or the increased censorship. Or all the unpunished fraud and corruption. Looking for a fairy tale ending, or a light at the end of this draconian tunnel, is like cold-calling as a telemarketing representative. Just as it takes a special soul to weather all the angry hang ups in telemarketing, it takes a special soul to withstand the nonstop negativity in our present troubled world. How many times can you keep bouncing up from the canvas, when the referee has tied your arms behind your back? The game is rigged, and most of the people not only can’t see that, but continue to actively cheer on those who are rigging it.

I’m a sensitive guy. The kind women claim to love. I want everyone to like me. So when former cyber friends delete me on social media, as far too many have, it hurts. I understand why; in almost every case, it has been because of my writing about this “pandemic,” which I call the Greatest Psyop in the History of the World. All the residual effects of the deadly Trump Derangement Syndrome have been channeled into this virus. Those who continue to irrationally hate Trump/Goldstein are clinging to their masks and embracing every restriction on their liberties that our corrupt leaders devise. This is the only disease we’ve ever seen where people want it to be worse than even the fear porn artists say it is. Some of my old friends are seriously suggesting that we should just continue to wear the masks forever.

When you have talked to the whistleblowers I have, and the recurring theme is that their own families virtually never support them, you become even less hopeful. It does make my own experience, of having my niece delete me on Facebook, or old friends telling me I’m “dangerous” for doubting the Great Plandemic, a little more understandable. Misery loves company, and all that. But it does quell the urge to blow the whistle, when your own family and close friends not only aren’t understanding, but actually resent you for it. Nobody likes the unpopular, and no one is more unpopular than a whistleblower.

My nature was nurtured by a bitter, alcoholic father, and a bubbly, upbeat mother. I am grateful everyday for my mother, whose sunny, laughing persona counteracted my father’s dark cynicism. It’s no mystery why I was drawn to the writings of Ambrose Bierce, the most famous literary cynic, as well as Frank Capra’s populist-themed films, which featured implausible but delightfully attractive fairy tale endings. Yin and Yang. However, considering how thoroughly the dark side seems to be winning at this point, my perspective is more skewed than ever now to Bierce rather than Capra. I still sometimes turn to Bierce’s The Devil’s Dictionary for comfort.

My favorite novel of all time is 1984. I have written about how this whole plandemic/lockdown psyop has incorporated so much of Orwell’s language. Recently, a coalition formed to pressure Joe Biden into establishing a Disinformation Task Force. Among the groups lobbying for this include Pen America, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and most laughably, an outfit calling themselves Free Press. One of their quotes bears repeating. “We know that fighting disinformation also means remaining vigilant against censorship and other threats to free expression,” stated Matt Bailey, director of Pen America’s Digital Freedom Program. “We also know that disinformation itself is a profound threat to free speech, because it prevents the robust exchange of ideas and sows distrust and polarization.”

This is today’s Left in all its glory. So “fighting disinformation” equates to counteracting “threats to free expression?” Kind of like we dropped the bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to save lives. They ought to just drop all pretenses and create a literal Thought Police patrol. Because that’s exactly what Orwellian terms like “hate speech,” “conspiracy theories,” and “disinformation” are; attempts to control and punish thoughts unfriendly to, and unwelcomed by, the government and its sycophants in media. They are contending that “conspiracy theorists” are “yelling fire in a crowded theater,” much like they claimed Eugene Debs and other WWI protesters were “shouting fire” by protesting the war.

With the disappearance of Trump from the national scene, we are back to cold reality. Not even a fake White Hat in sight. The evil virtue signalers are in charge of everything in society now, and they are wielding their authority like a gaggle of Genghis Khans. The stupid, Republican “opposition” stands for nothing, and will apologize for things they never said, never intended to do, and never believed, on cue when ordered to. They have been labeled Recucklicans for good reason. No one with a large public platform is on our side. Tucker Carlson is about the best you’re going to get. Years of scoffing at “conspiracy theorists” brought us to this point. You don’t “trust the plan” when the planners are demented, eugenicist elitists.

Maybe we go back to the “all change is local” tactic. Try to overturn the tyranny from the bottom up, instead of looking to the top, where the corruption is most obvious. Perhaps we can start with a few honest dog catchers. This plandemic and lockdown has exposed the rot at the middle and lower levels of the system. The Lori Lightfoots and Rachel Levines of the world used to be unknown outside their spheres of influence. Now we know that the states and cities are full of this kind of monumentally incompetent leadership. Mayors used to be spoofed on television programs like Green Acres and The Andy Griffith Show. The real mayors we’ve watched oversee such shocking incompetence over the past year don’t have any comedic value. You can’t laugh at compromised buffoons presiding over the destruction of the country.

Literary giants of the past recognized how bad those in charge historically have been. Jonathan Swift talked about the judges of the eighteenth century being so corrupt you couldn’t bribe them to do the right thing. Charles Dickens lambasted British leadership for being “experts in how not to get it done.” Our modern leaders are so devoted to chicanery and crime that it would be hard to bribe them into doing anything good. And virtually every present-day leader, at every level, in unquestionably skilled in “how not to get it done.” There’s always another country to bomb, or a corporate bailout to fund, instead of addressing that Third World infrastructure. Misplaced priorities and naked hypocrisy rule.

I am so grateful for all the messages of support I get, from people all over the world. They are what keeps me going. Knowing that I’m having an impact makes it all worthwhile. Despite my incessant complaining and default gloominess, I get far more positive than negative feedback. There are lots of trolls, but I don’t feed them too much. I’m told I am too tolerant of them, but I guess that’s part of being a civil libertarian. As I’ve told some of them, at least they’re paying attention. They’re reading and listening. That’s more than I can say for most everyone who knows me in real life. Or at least they don’t admit it. I suspect some are lurkers, reading my work and listening to my radio show.

I won’t invoke fire and brimstone, but at this point we all need to rely on our faith. Our problems are so enormous, and the corruption so extensive, that only a supernatural force could fix it. How many powerful personages have lived long, happy lives of crime, and died unpunished? We shouldn’t relish vengeance, but if they aren’t held responsible for their actions, what does morality really mean? How many good people have lived lives, short and long, of “quiet desperation,” to quote Thomas Wolfe, of financial hardship and ceaseless frustration? Was all their suffering and sacrifice in vain? Is there no “eternal reward?”

My faith, shaky as it often is, is what spurs me on. Every fiber of my being tells me that this vale of tears cannot be all there is to life. The grave is not life’s goal, to quote Longfellow. The evidence for life after death is extensive. Look at the intricate detail on a butterfly’s wings, or the shell of a box turtle. That didn’t happen because of some random occurrence. We are not meaningless microbes in an endless, incomprehensible universe. We aren’t here because of some ridiculous Big Bang. We didn’t crawl out of the primordial ooze, whatever that is, and mystically leave the sea for land. Why did anything stay in the sea? If we evolved from apes, why are there still apes? Creation proves a creator.

As John Lennon once said, “Okay, so flower power didn’t work. So what? We start again.” So politics didn’t work. So Trump didn’t work. We start again. Try to change the hearts and minds you can. As Robert F. Kennedy put it, “Each time a man stands up for an ideal or acts to improve the lot of others or strikes out against injustice. He sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest wall of oppression and resistance.” It sounds corny, but be the change you want to be. Send forth tiny ripples of hope.

  1. Just finished this post, and all I can say is….Thank you for doing what you do in your work, Know that what you do matters(maybe more than what seems apparent at the moment) and I think with time, your audience will grow more and more.

  2. Norman h kangas

    I’m with you brother. Keep up your excellent efforts.

  3. Very well-written and moving, Donald.

    Everything you wrote echoes so closely my own thoughts and feelings, that it makes me certain that so many other people must be thinking and feeling very much along the same lines as you – not that that offers much comfort, if any at all.

    Your reference to a butterfly’s wings was so close to my own thoughts of late – thinking that since it is so clear that someone, or something, created everything on this world of ours, that surely that creator is not going to just let us go into the night which seems to be descending so rapidly now.

    I remember giving a speech long ago to some powerful people in D.C. The man who spoke before me was talking about his parents – saying that they were both 65. He asked:

    “What have they got to look forward to?”

    Well, I’m not 65 yet – but I find myself asking the same question, almost every day.

    The more clearly one understands what is being engineered now by the incredibly evil people running the Covid, ‘vaccines’ and Great Reset operations, and the better one visualizes their end game, the more difficult it is to see any light ahead.

    But the best-laid plans can run into unexpected trouble, since they are made by humans, no matter how evil. We should remember, I think, that so far in human history, no one has been able to carry out evil on a vast scale, without whatever they created collapsing in due course.

    Perhaps people across the world will suddenly reach some critical mass moment of clarity – for example, if they see vast numbers of the vaxxed dying this Winter, and see the un-vaxxed not dying…. and that they suddenly realize what is going on.

    I hadn’t thought of the propensity of so many people to believe the scamdemic narrative as being a continuation of TDS, but you could be right. It would be appropriate, because Trump was selected in 2016 by TPTB to neutralize the (armed) Right last year so they wouldn’t resist the lockdowns and other initial scamdemic tyranny that Trump enabled and often supported. But regardless of why the majority of the population is so willing, and even as you say, eager, to believe the official narrative, I don’t see any way back. There is no light at the end of this tunnel, at least in the traditional sense. We are never going back to anything that resembles life as we knew it before the scamdemic began. However, if this is actually the beginning of the NWO depopulation to reduce the world population to about 500 million, which it looks like it probably is, then I am actually optimistic about the outcome. It will mostly be the stupid people on this planet who die, since the smart people will largely survive the turmoil and hardships of the next few years. Call me cynical, heartless, and callous, but if most of the stupid people end up dead, that will greatly increase the average IQ of the (remaining) population.

    A world populated by about half a billion people with an average IQ significantly higher than the current average will be a formidable force, both because of their own superiority and because they won’t be hindered by the billions of stupid useless eaters that currently populate the planet and do nothing except drain resources from the smart people and get in their way. Now obviously the NWO doesn’t see things the same way I do. They certainly aren’t seeking to empower the half billion survivors. However, the globalists may be smart but they aren’t infallible. Their power is due not so much to the fact that they are smart, but due to the fact that the rest of the population is extremely stupid on average. The globalists rely on the ignorance of the masses to stay in power, in fact that is precisely why they devote so much energy to making sure the masses stay ignorant (especially via public schools and the MSM). But the globalists are extremely few in number compared to the world population. It is like the grasshoppers and the ants in “A Bug’s Life”. If a significant percentage (not a significant NUMBER, but a significant PERCENTAGE) of the population knew what was going on, and decided to take matters into their own hands, it would be extremely easy to take down the NWO. So what I see is a shift in the dynamic after the depopulation. A smaller population of smart people unhindered by the useful idiots criticizing everything they do and continuously obstructing them could easily take down the NWO. The result would be the closest thing to paradise that humans have ever experienced, at least in modern civilization.

    Of course it is likely that the NWO has already anticipated that shift in the dynamic and has plans to prevent it. But I am up for that challenge and a battle of the wits. And since that is our only chance, I don’t have much choice.

  6. David,
    There is no “NWO”.
    There will be no depopulation. We are not going from more than 7 billion to half a billion. I don’t care what the Georgia guide stones say.

    Yes. I do see sort of a worldwide corporate oligarchy. That’s not the same as a”NWO”. This corporate oligarchy still must deal with mother Russia, China and certain knuckleheads with oil.
    You think China is controlled by the “NWO”? Have another vat of gin.

    As I told the fool who runs this page, you live in luxury compared to most people in the world. And certainly more than almost everyone in the past. You have a wealth of knowledge at your fingertips, but you choose to ignore it.
    Covid 19 is not a “scamdemic”.
    Change. Stop pretending to know things you do not know. Stop pretending that you are special and have secret knowledge others do not have.

    “if a significant percentage of population knew what was really going on…”
    Like you? Yeah? Tell me what is “really going on”.

    The fool who runs this page is implying that the murders at Sandy Hook were a “hoax”.
    He tells the standard BS of “I’m just asking questions”. No. He is not very subtly claiming that the murders of Sandy Hook were a “hoax”.

    How ’bout you? Do you think the murder at Sandy Hook were a “hoax” too, davey?

    • David Erickson

      It is precisely because of people like you that I am looking forward to the depopulation. You, specifically, might survive just by being lucky (just as some smart people will not survive by being unlucky enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time), but most of your type will not survive. Then I won’t have to listen to your drivel and nonsense anymore.

      • Hahahahha You’re the candidate for depopulation. fatty!
        Intellectually, you’re not fit to shine my shoes, davey!
        Hope you get cancer since the “NWO depopulation won’t happen. Been hearing that for decades.
        Just like Jeffries, you have no friends and your family despises you. Who would miss you? No one.

  7. Yes!! lol Tossing my post down the “memory hole”!! I bet your sci fi stories are really good. I mean that. Just because they are not published means nothing, But you must change Mr. Jeffries.
    Yes. Please give me a way to read your sci fi.

    • I don’t know what attracts you to this page- you obviously swallow the official narratives and don’t agree with anything I say. Your strange devotion to my page has now compelled you to post under another name. “Blue” has the exact same IP address as AJ Killian.

  8. I’m just “asking questions”!
    Like the one about “Do you really think you’re more convincing than the Sandy Hook parents I have spoken to?”
    or “What is the motivation for this “hoax”? (and if you say you, “I never said it was a hoax”….well…..hahhhahah).
    Answer, bmade!

  9. Ralph B. Seymour

    Things are going to get so bad in the near future that people at least some people will be forced out of apathy. Perhaps that will happen before our rulers are able to perfect the digital prison and there is no way out.

  10. Hahaha I hope my notsosmartphone can hold all the excellent articles you write. Every bit you’ve mentioned has been keep worthy. Also isn’t woke kinda like a misnomer?

  11. Have you ever watched TheGreatestTruthNeverTold series on youtube, Mr. Jeffries? Chris Duane is the creator of the channel, and is a self-proclaimed ‘Apocaloptimist’ and silver-pusher, but he’s done a lot of good work regarding history of money and human behavior, especially considering he’s just a normal guy like most of us. He just might give you even more hope. As he says, you can do is work on yourself, as there are no collective solutions to collectivist problems.

    This world cannot continue the way it is, and it seems you are aware of this. So if you are aware, you can prepare. And let’s wait it out and get to the other side.

    Peace, brother.
