Double Speak such as Patriot Missile, Patriot Act. There’s nothing patriotic about a missile or the Patriot Act. In fact, it’s the exact opposite. Another good one Federal Reserve. It’s not Federal, there are no reserves.

Excellent video. I regularly look up the meaning of words, even common words, because most people do not know what they’re actually saying most of the time. The entire legal system is set up with the most devious double speak, literally changing and hiding definitions of words publicly to trick people into compliance with unlawful things. Legal and lawful are 2 totally different things, for instance. Inversion is the name of the game for the elites and they delight in watching the masses live in opposite day every day, but if you educate yourself on what words really mean, you start to see that absolutely everything they say is a lie, and the truth is pretty easy to figure out whether you like what it is or not.

Oh yes. Every single question a defendant is asked in court serves to hex and disable him. For example “Do you understand the charges against you?” And the defendant is obliged to say “yes”. Too bad “understand” technically means to “stand under”, essentially to “agree”, NOT to “comprehend”. Ignorance to the law is not a defense, so why should it matter if the defendant comprehends the charges? It doesn’t. It’s a devious way of getting the victim to affirm verbally that he agrees with the charges against him.

“They want to download a Microsoft Office System into your body, into your brain and hook it up to the Jedi Cloud Contract and the Amazon Cloud Contract at the CIA. And if they can get seven billion people hooked up directly to their cloud contracts and use the virus… I mean it’s very clever. Use viruses to keep those updates coming. It’s the same exact models you use in the computers. Just like Bill Gates made it possible for the intelligence agencies to get a back door into our data and our computers. They want a back door into our mind. They are trying to load an operating system into our bodies. I call it the injection fraud.” — Catherine Austin Fitts

Another example of how far our culture has degraded, this is much more intellectual than anything you see on tv today.
