Hell of a Deal was the first book I decided to publish, back in 2009. It is a satire of the “War on Terror” and Hollywood’s incessant propaganda to push empire, domination, torture, and war crimes. Hollywood, quite frankly, sickened me to my core and I had to respond in some way.

This book is more Gulliver than John Wick, more Faust than Charlie’s Angels. At the start, I wanted so badly to crucify the main guy, Executive Producer Al Smith. He was to represent the worst of Hollywood profiteering at the cost of all our souls. After hitting the movie lottery in the late 60s, his career evolved over the decades to promote more extreme degradation and nationalism, especially as we entered the Age of Terror. And that’s where Seaford stepped in.

The story needed a guy to push the envelope, to abandon the self-imposed limitations, which Hollywood had placed on itself, and to see how far these trends could go. So, as the title implied, it was literally about a deal–a movie deal. Only, nothing was what it seemed. The deal was not about money, and profit was the last thing Seaford cared about. It was all about the messaging, the propaganda, the final cut, the access into your brains.

By the time Seaford arrived on the movie scene, Al Smith was already old and on his last legs. He was dying. His time was over, almost. There was one thing that could possibly turn things around for him, and that was medical science. This was what Seaford brought to the table: “Youth.”

These pieces all fit together like a well-oiled machine. Just thinking on it, I knew I had something special here. Firstly, I had something to say. Secondly, I had a Faustian bargain plot like no one had ever seen before. In this Faustian story, things are meant to look one way, fairly normal even in the current normality. But things were far from normal.

As I said, I wanted Al Smith to suffer, but strangely that only brought the story so far. The story itself cried out for some kind of redemption. Could I flip everything and become sympathetic to Smith? What would he need to do?

In the end, perhaps some might think him redeemed. Others not. It’s potentially ambiguous, and with a big Hollywood ending.

Shitlibs are worse than fascists.

Of course, Denis Villeneuve is one of the top directors alive today, and of course I was gong to see this. The film makes sure every moment is lushly filmed and filled with visual and audio grandeur. It is quite spectacular filmmaking.

The story halted in the middle, and other films will need to complete it. Unlike the David Lynch version, this movie allowed the characters to take their time. Perhaps too much time, at 2:35 it does seem a bit longish, and yet I wanted more.

This was the one movie to bring me back into theaters after two years, and I didn’t mind getting out to see it. However, the AMC barrage of corporate garbage preceding the film and the deafening sound levels almost ruined it. I ducked out of the previews to save my hearing, and I expected the film not to abuse the ears. But, the…

Meet your new overlords.

Among [MITRE’S] most novel products is a system built for the FBI which captures individuals’ fingerprints from images posted on social media sites.

US digital vaccine passport push

Even Mitre’s own app shows a blatant LIE: it labels its compliance as “IMMUNE.” You are not medically “immune” to anything.That is Covid misinformation as a built in feature of its tyrannical app that it is forcing onto citizens.

“privately owned and operated ID systems with profit-maximizing business models threaten the privacy, security, and other fundamental rights of individuals and communities.”  

In Major Shift, NIH Admits Funding Risky Virus Research in Wuhan

EcoHealth Alliance, a New York City–based nonprofit that partners with far-flung laboratories to research and prevent the outbreak of emerging diseases, did indeed enhance a bat coronavirus to become potentially more infectious to humans, which the NIH letter described as an “unexpected result” of the research it funded that was carried out in partnership with the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

From day fucking one we were right.

They lied to us at every level, including in science journals like “Nature” and across the presstitute propaganda media.

FAUCI knew as of 2018 and still lies at every opportunity:

“These data were reported as soon as we were made aware, in our year four report in April 2018.”

ARREST THE GUILTY RIGHT NOW.

They are mass murderers.

Dr. Francis Boyle was 100% correct from the beginning.

For the national security state, digital immunity passports promise unprecedented control over populations wherever such systems are implemented.

How digital vaccine passports pave way for unprecedented surveillance capitalism

They are seizing control of your rights in broad daylight, creating a global authoritarian regime. Forced vaccination is a complete violation of medical ethics. The lies continue that the shot prevents the spread of the disease when it does not. There is no legitimate justification for creating a surveillance system around vaccination. This is a top-down power grab with no debate or much understanding, as the people cannot even conceive of the problems with giving up their right to say no to governments and corporations.

They force vaccines onto livestock as a matter of routine. Welcome to the barnyard. #sheeple
