Wag the Dog

Ever since March 2020 when President Trump declared the national emergency, I've been saying “We're watching a movie.”

My friends were freaking out about “COVID” but I knew that was just a cover for what was really going on. I mean, yes, there is a virus and yes, it's a real virus (although I'm sure it was engineered in a Chinese lab with money from Fauci et al and I don't think it's worse than a really bad flu — did you notice flu deaths disappeared this year? That's a whole ‘nother blog post.)

But COVID is not the real enemy. The enemy is the Deep State Cabal.

Wag the Dog

As Q has said repeatedly, “Enjoy the show.”

Well, the movie just got a whole lot more awesome. And it has a very happy ending.

In this post, I'll tell you why. As President Trump says, “The best is yet to come.”

We're Watching a Movie

When I say “we're watching movie,” you may be asking yourself, “Which movie?”

In Hollywood, when people pitch movies, they say it's “X meets Y.” For example, “It's the Lego Movie meets ET.”

So far, my best description of the storm we've been living through is this:

It's Wag the Dog meets The Book of Esther (the 17th book of the Bible) meets Independence Day meets The Sum of All Fears meets The Truman Show meets The Matrix. (And for those of you who haven't read the Book of Esther, I promise to write a post on that in the future.)

OK, let me back up.

Wag the Dog

To understand what I am talking about, you first need to watch the trailer for the 1997 movie, Wag the Dog, starring Dustin Hoffman and Robert DeNiro.

Wag the Dog is a movie about a D.C. spin doctor who teams up with a Hollywood producer to change the media narrative.

Even if you saw it when it came out like I did, you probably need a refresher:

Wag the Dog: The Plot

Here's the Wikipedia summary of Wag the Dog. Skim this section in case you haven't seen the film:

The US president is caught making advances on an underage girl inside the Oval Office, less than two weeks before the election. Conrad Brean, a top spin doctor, (played by Robert De Niro), is brought in by presidential aide Winifred Ames (Anne Heche) to take the public's attention away from the scandal. He decides to construct a fictional war in Albania, hoping the media will concentrate on this instead.

Brean contacts Hollywood producer Stanley Motss (played by Dustin Hoffman) to create the war, complete with a theme song and fake film footage of a photogenic orphan. The hoax is initially successful, with the president quickly gaining ground in the polls.

When the CIA learns of the plot, they send Agent Young (William H. Macy) to confront Brean about the hoax. Brean convinces Young that revealing the deception is against his and the CIA's best interests. But when the CIA — in collusion with the president's rival candidate — reports that the war has ended, the media begins to focus back on the president's sexual abuse scandal.

To counter this, Motss invents a hero who was left behind enemy lines in Albania. Inspired by the idea that he was “discarded like an old shoe”, Brean and Motss ask the Pentagon to provide a special forces soldier with a matching name (a sergeant named “Schumann” is identified) around whom a POW narrative can be constructed. As part of the hoax, folk singer Johnny Dean (Willie Nelson) records a song called “Old Shoe”, which is pressed onto a 78 rpm record, prematurely aged so that listeners will think it was recorded years earlier, and sent to the Library of Congress to be “found”. Soon, large numbers of old pairs of shoes began appearing on phone and power lines, and a grassroots movement takes hold.

When the team goes to retrieve Schumann (Woody Harrelson), they discover he is in fact a criminally insane Army convict. On the way back, their plane crashes en route to Andrews Air Force Base. The team survives and is rescued by a farmer, an illegal alien who is given expedited citizenship for a better story. However, Schumann is killed after he attempts to rape a gas station owner's daughter. Seizing the opportunity, Motss stages an elaborate military funeral for Schumann, claiming that he died from wounds sustained during his rescue.

While watching a political talk show, Motss gets frustrated that the media are crediting the president's upsurge in the polls to the bland campaign slogan of “Don't change horses in mid-stream” rather than to Motss's hard work. Motss states that he wants credit and will reveal his involvement, despite Brean's offer of an ambassadorship and the dire warning that he is “playing with his life”. After Motss refuses to change his mind, Brean reluctantly orders his security staff to kill him. A newscast reports that Motss has died of a heart attack at home, the president was successfully re-elected, and an Albanian terrorist organization has claimed responsibility for a recent bombing.

Wag the Dog: What Does It Mean?

Okay, so, what does “wag the dog” mean?

Wikipedia tells us:

Wag the dog is, in politics, the act of creating a diversion from a damaging issue. It stems from the generic use of the term to mean a small and seemingly unimportant entity (the tail) controls a bigger, more important one (the dog). The phrase originates in the saying “a dog is smarter than its tail, but if the tail were smarter, then it would wag the dog.

That's technically what it means — the act of creating a diversion from a damaging issue.

However, since this movie was released, most people these days understand “wag the dog” to mean political propaganda in general. Whether or not we know the phrase “Operation Mockingbird” (the CIA infiltration of the media), we know that the media is constantly pushing propaganda on us and most of what we see in the news can't be trusted.

From crisis actors to green screens to deep fakes, there's so much astroturfing going on, it's hard to know what's real anymore. I love that Roseanne Barr and Donald Trump call themselves “real” on Twitter, as in @therealroseanne and @realdonaldtrump. I think I can speak for most people when I say we're so sick of being lied to; we just want the truth.

While technology has gotten more sophisticated in our modern age, political spin and propaganda goes way, way back. Wikipedia goes on to trace wag the dog back to Abraham Lincoln.

The earliest usage of the phrase in politics found in print seems to be an article originating in 1871, discussing one Democratic convention. In it, they reference a popular play, Our American Cousin, the very play that Abraham Lincoln was watching six years earlier when he was assassinated by actor John Wilkes Booth. In the play, the character Lord Dundreary is a sympathetic character who constantly utters confused catch phrases a-la Yogi Berra, which were known at that time as Dundrearyisms:

Calling to mind Lord Dundreary's conundrum, the Baltimore American thinks that for the Cincinnati Convention to control the Democratic party would be the tail wagging the dog.

President Abraham Lincoln

I just want to point out here that Abraham Lincoln was one of the 3 presidents who challenged the Federal Reserve Bank.

Two of them were killed: Lincoln and JFK.

President John F. Kennedy

And one is currently in office: Donald J. Trump.

President Donald J. Trump

But this will make more sense in a second…

What the Heck Does Wag the Dog Have to Do with 2020 & the Coronavirus?

OK, OK, so you read all that and now you're probably even more confused.

You're probably like, huh? What's the point? What does Wag the Dog have to do with 2020 and the coronavirus and President Trump?

OK, let, me ‘splain.

On the Q board, there were a whopping 74 drops that said “Enjoy the show.”

Q also tells us repeatedly to “get popcorn” or asks, “Got popcorn?”

In other words, you're watching a movie.

OK, let's get right into it… Are you ready?

Drum roll…

Steven Mnuchin is a Hollywood Producer

It just so happens that Steven Mnuchin, the US Secretary of the Treasury, is a bonafide Hollywood producer.

Steven Mnuchin, 77th United States Secretary of the Treasury

Whoa, wait, what? Really? Yes, really.

Go look at his IMDB.

He has produced an incredible 44 films, including The Lego Movie, Mad Max, and many others.

According to Wikipedia:

Steven Terner Mnuchin, born December 21, 1962, is an American politician, investment banker and film producer who is serving as the 77th United States secretary of the treasury as part of the Cabinet of Donald Trump. Previously, Mnuchin had been a hedge fund manager and investor.

In 2004, Mnuchin founded Dune Entertainment as a side business, which was the financier of a number of large budget films, mostly for 20th Century Fox, including the X-Men film franchise and Avatar.

The Producer Never Gets the Credit

If you know anything about the way Hollywood works, the producer is the one who never gets any credit. He's the one who finances the whole movie, the one who puts everything on the line, but usually nobody knows who he is.

Stanley Motss, the movie producer in Wag the Dog, played by Dustin Hoffman, is the unsung hero who doesn't get any credit.

Watch this scene where Stanley explains that the producer never gets the credit:

When spin doctor Brean (De Niro) first meets Stanley the producer, Stanley says, “I never won an Oscar.”

That's the running joke in Hollywood. Directors and actors win Oscars. Producers don't win Oscars. They never get the credit.

Watch the earlier scene, when Motss first indicates that he never got any credit:

https://youtu.be/M-FXkj-r9Mc

Here's the part from the script:

This is significant, I think, because Treasury Secretary Mnuchin's role today is very similar to the role of a Hollywood producer. They do the heavy lifting to get the show made, but nobody knows how important they are.

OK, I need to say this. Technically, Mnuchin has only ever been an executive producer. Which means he didn't actually handle the books, and just put up the money. So not the same thing as Stanley in Wag the Dog.

But still. The fact that Mnuchin is so connected to Hollywood validates my theory that there are good guys / white hats in Hollywood.

I could be wrong about Mnuchin but I think he is a good guy.

Here's my number one reason: I don't think Trump would ever put someone he didn't trust in charge of the money.

But let's watch and we'll find out. As Trump says, We'll see what happens.

Relax, it's just a meme

Why is Steven Mnuchin's Role So Important In This Movie?

So let me explain why Mnuchin's role is so impotant. And what this “war with a silent enemy” is about — the one President Trump says we're fighting.

Three words: Follow. The. Money.

What's that old saying? Money makes the world go around.

Remember that scene from Cabaret where they sing “Money”:

“Money” from Cabaret

And that's just one of many songs about money. Remember this one by Abba?

“Money, Money, Money” by Abba

And who could forget the famous song from Trump's show The Apprentice?

Opening song from “The Apprentice” & “The Celebrity Apprentice”

NESARA = Draining the Swamp

Mnuchin. Treasury Department. Money. But what does this have to do with the war with the “hidden enemy”?

I alluded to it earlier in this post when I said Lincoln & JFK were killed for for the same reason.

Three words: Federal Reserve System.

Three more words: End. The. Fed.

If you haven't heard of NESARA yet, it's time to educate yourself. NESARA stands for the National Economic Security and Recovery Act (NESARA).

Wikipedia tells us:

NESARA was a set of proposed economic reforms for the United States suggested during the 1990s by Harvey Francis Barnard. Barnard claimed that the proposals, which included replacing the income tax with a national sales tax, abolishing compound interest on secured loans, and returning to a bimetallic currency, would result in 0% inflation and a more stable economy. The proposals were never introduced before Congress.

Draining the Swamp

Did you catch that?

Harvey Barnard's book was called Draining the Swamp: The NESARA Story — Monetary and Fiscal Policy Reform.

Draining the Swamp: Monetary & Fiscal Policy Reform by Harvey Barnard

Harvey Barnard died in 2005 of a heart attack. Hmm… suspicious.

Just like Stanley Motss in Wag the Dog (scroll up to read the plot summary again).

Google “CIA heart attack” and you find this article on Military.com: The CIA's Secret Heart Attack Gun.

Also suspicious that the book is out of print. However, you can find it on Archive.org. You can also find it in PDF format on various websites. I won't put the link here because it keeps changing.

Drain the Swamp

Where have we heard the phrase “Drain the Swamp” before?

Go to Advanced Twitter search and type in “Drain the Swamp” and @realDonaldTrump and see what you find: Drain the Swamp from @realDonaldTrump

Drain the Swamp by @realDonaldTrump on Advanced Twitter Search

He has repetitively used the phrase on Twitter since his campaign in 2016.

NESARA

To learn more about NESARA (and GESARA, which is NESARA for the rest of the world), I highly recommend watching Santa Surfing's very comprehensive primer:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7f1_UQr9dM

If you don't have half an hour to watch that right now, bookmark it and promise me you'll watch it later. It is the key to this whole deal.

And I love Santa; she explains everything very succinctly. Been following her since March of this year.

The Federal Reserve is Going Down

What this all boils down to is the Federal Reserve is getting put out to pasture.

Why? Because it's an illegal globalist cartel that has been controlling our money supply for a century — and robbing us blind in the process.

The Federal Reserve System was created just over one hundred years ago, on December 23, 1913. According to Wikipeida, the Federal Reserve is “controlled by member private banks but not owned by anyone.”

Red flag, anyone? You should have alarms going off. The Federal Reserve prints and controls our money and it's owned by private banks? Which banks? Not owned by anyone? What does that mean?

Here's a good video outlining the history of the Federal Reserve and who really controls our money supply (it's not good, but you need to watch it):

I also highly recommend reading a book called The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve.

The Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin

I read it in 2020, and actually, I plan to read it again because it is so chock full of information — so much to absorb. I truly believe every American, heck, every citizen around the world should read this book.

Reading this book is when you finally wake up to the truth — that criminal Deep State bankers rule the world.

Here's the summary from Amazon:

This is the classic exposé of the Fed that has become one of the best-selling books in its category of all time. Where does money come from? Where does it go? Who makes it? The money magician's secrets are unveiled. Here is a close look at their mirrors and smoke machines, the pulleys, cogs, and wheels that create the grand illusion called money.

A boring subject? Just wait. You'll be hooked in five minutes. It reads like a detective story – which it really is, but it's all true. This book is about the most blatant scam of history. It's all here: the cause of wars, boom-bust cycles, inflation, depression, prosperity. Your world view will definitely change. Putting it quite simply, this may be the most important book on world affairs you will ever read. 608 pages.

The 5th Edition includes a no-holds barred analysis of bank bailouts under the Bush and Obama Administrations that are shown to be nothing less than legalized plunder of the American people. Many other updates have been added, including a revision to the list of those who attended the historic meeting at Jekyll Island where the Federal Reserve was created.

I can't recommend this book highly enough.

How Do We Know The Fed is Ending?

Again, please watch Santa Surfing's video linked above, but I'll leave you with a few key points that illustrate the fact that the Fed is all but dead:

  1. The Federal Reserve and the Treasury were merged in March, 2020.

    For proof of that, read this article: The Fed's Cure Risks Being Worse Than the Disease.

    In case you don't have time to read the article, I highlighted the key point below:

2. Judy Shelton!

Who is Judy Shelton, you ask? One of the other key players in this movie (along with Mnuchin). She's Trump's pick for the Federal Reserve's Board of Governors.

She's an advocate of going back to the gold standard and she's also in favor of cryptocurrency: Trump’s Fed Pick Isn’t Just a Gold Bug – She’s Also a Crypto Bull.

CNN story on Judy Shelton

Wikipedia says this about Judy:

Judy Lynn Shelton is an American economic advisor to President Donald Trump. She is known for her advocacy for a return to the gold standard and for her criticisms of the Federal Reserve (which she has compared to the Soviet Union's economic planning). 

Ahem. “Advocacy for a return to the gold standard,” and “criticisms of the Federal Reserve.”

It goes on:

Trump announced on July 2, 2019, that he would nominate Shelton to the Fed. Her nomination stalled on November 17, 2020, with a 47–50 vote in the Senate, with the possibility of being retried by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell after the Thanksgiving recess.

Ahem again. November 17.

If you've been reading my blog or and/or following Q, you know what 17 means. Don't know? Read this.

MarketWatch reported in September 2020 that “More than 100 economists, including at least seven Nobel winners, have signed an open letter urging the Senate to reject Federal Reserve nominee Judy Shelton, calling her views ‘extreme and ill-considered.'”

Here's a copy of that letter. You should bookmark it so you can remember who all the traitors are.

OK so what's the latest on Judy? President Trump just renominated her yesterday. It all hinges on the Senate vote. But you know what, I'm 1000% confident that we will keep the Senate and she will be confirmed.

I think she's pretty confident, too. Just look at her tweet from Dec 31st:

That same day she tweeted this:

Looks like GOLD on the horizon, doesn't it?

And then on January 3rd (yesterday), she retweeted this from Wall Street Journal reporter, Nick Timiraos:

And then she retweeted this:

Someone commented under that tweet asking, “Is Judy Shelton in or does she have to wait?”:

And the response is:

OK, take that last tweet with a GIANT GRAIN OF SALT. Here's why…

Yes, the Georgia Senate race is tomorrow (Jan. 5th) but we Anons already know that not only will Trump win re-election but we will hold the Senate and we will gain the House. I would explain how I know but it would take me a billion more paragraphs and I need to wrap this up.

So, needless to say, I'm very confident Judy will be confirmed.

3. OK, I'll leave you with ONE more final point on why I think the Fed is ending. And then I can finally put an end to this blog post.

Trump Las Vegas tweeted this last June:

And it got me to thinking… why would Donald Trump, who has all the money in the world, have such an obsession with gold?

This article goes into detail about Trump's love for gold: A Psychologist Reveals What Trump's Fixation with Gold Really Means: He surrounds himself with the metallic color and swapped out the White House curtains for his signature shade.'

It's a stupid article because the genius psychologist says, “In nearly all cultures, however, gold represents luxury and wealth… It can also symbolize greed and excess.”

If you think about it for 5 minutes, you know why Trump loves gold. Because returning to the gold standard is the key to ending inflation and taking control back from the Deep State bankers.

Don't believe me? Doesn't matter. Instead, listen to one of Donald's friends (they've been friends for decades, wrote a couple books together, and I think they even started a couple of businesses together), financial expert, Robert Kiyosaki.

Last time I checked, Kiyosaki was worth over $100 million, so he knows a thing or two about money.

I read Kiyosaki's latest book, Fake, last year, on my way to Cancun (the incentive trip I earned from selling MONAT).

Truly, an excellent book. I recommend everyone read this book ASAP. Click here to buy it on Amazon. (I got the audio version — it's a great listen.)

It's all about the Deep State cabal and how they rule us by controlling the money supply. And why we need to go back to the gold standard.

I love this book because just like in his bestselling first book, Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!, Kiyosaki writes in PLAIN ENGLISH so the average person can understand what he is saying.

He is truly one of the good guys. Unlike most financial gurus out there, who lie to you to make money off of you.

Please, Do Your Own Research

As with all my blog posts, don't take my word for it. Research for yourself.

I hope this just opened up a bunch of new questions for you and you go and dive down some rabbit holes of your own.

Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments — I love to hear from you guys!

And please go read The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve and watch Santa Surfing's excellent video about NESARA:
