One of my Facebook friends posted: Today's observation: Drug cartels are a cohesion of evil.

That's true. The International Banks, the Military\Industrial Complex, Big Pharma, Big Agri, Big Government, the Controlled Media, the Disease Racket, an infiltrated and compromised education system that short changes our kids, psychiatry and a judicial system that strips our right to trial by jury are all big pieces of the jigsaw puzzle of our real and evil Matrix. See the evil in one and follow the links to the others and you unravel the web of evil that inexorably encroaches on our freedoms and liberty. If we are to regain and preserve our liberty we must successfully educate our peers to collectively defend against all of these influences.

Just saw an ad for wherein they promoted supporting local businesses rather than multinational corporations. I think that is a great way to support those who are genuinely trying to deliver pro-survival products and dry up the cash flow of many multinationals who fund our enslavement.

I also pay my suppliers before or on receipt of goods. Credit is an instrument of control that makes bankers money.

Tap on the Shoulder

A true story from the pages of the Manchester Evening Times

Last Wednesday a passenger in a taxi heading for Salford station leaned over to ask the driver a question and gently tapped him on the shoulder to get his attention.

The driver screamed, lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove up over the curb and stopped just inches from a large plate window.

For a few moments everything was silent in the cab. Then, the shaking driver said "are you OK? I'm so sorry, but you scared the daylights out of me."

The badly shaken passenger apologized to the driver and said, "I didn't realize that a mere tap on the shoulder would startle someone so badly."

The driver replied, "No, no, I'm the one who is sorry, it's entirely my fault. Today is my very first day driving a cab. I've been driving a hearse for 25 years."

CCHR exposes list of psycho-pharma front groups

A highly effective public relations technique is the "third party technique" of creating front groups to endorse or promote the need of any service or product. The first party is the original group or client that would benefit more from increased public trust or affinity. The second group is the public or consumers. A third group is created with a contrived name to appear publicly as a disinterested party endorsing the industry of the first party.

Sir Ken Robinson TED Speech

Ken gives a fabulous speech. You should listen just for what he has to say on ADHD! "If you are not prepared to be wrong you will never come up with anything original." "We are educated out of creativity." "In the next 30 years, according to UNESCO, more people world wide will be graduating through education than since the beginning of history."

The Other Side Of The Libyan Story

You won't see this on the 6 o'clock news. There are some anti-religion comments with which I do not agree and for which I had reservations about posting it. But there was so much data that the media fails to divulge and the video correctly targets the source of suppression that I ask you to not accept my whole hearted endorsement of it in its entirety but to use it to better understand the false picture constantly being painted by the controlled media as a tactic.

Want to Hear A Good One?

This little gem was found on Wikipedia: "A madness of civilization: the American psychiatrist Samuel A. Cartwright identified what he called drapetomania, an ailment that caused slaves to be possessed by a desire for freedom and a want to escape."

Sounds kind of similar to the "disease" psychiatrists 'have identified' as ADHD - the desire of children for freedom and want to escape a mind-numbing educational system.

Wow! I think most of my friends have drapetomania! I for one am desirous of ending the financial and cultural enslavement and working towards creating a new civilisation.

Getting off the Globalist Chessboard. An Introduction

An informative article on things you can do to increase your survival potential in the event of a major economic collapse.

This Is a Great Article on Sales Contact Process from Bob Bly

It happens to everyone in the service industry, all the time.

You get a phone call from a great prospect.

He's a perfect fit for your service - and he seems ready to buy.

So you send him the information he requested about your services.

And then you hear nothing more from him - despite your repeated attempts to get him on the phone.

"What happened?" you ask yourself, agonizing over this seemingly lost opportunity. "What did I do wrong?"

Relax. You didn't do anything wrong.

"I don't understand," you think. "He seemed so eager and interested when he first called. Did something happen?"

Yes, something happened.

And here, more likely than not, is what that something is....

The day he called you to inquire about your services, he had a pressing problem that he wanted to solve fast.

But priorities can change in a week, overnight, even in a minute - and suddenly, the problem he called you about is now at the bottom of his priority list instead of at the top.

However, you don't know this - and so getting the prospect on the phone is still at the top of YOUR priority list.

And that's where the disconnect is: closing the deal is now much more important to YOU than it is to your prospect.

Can you change that?

Some sales trainers would say yes, and give you a bunch of techniques for making the prospect's need more urgent.

But those techniques are largely useless.

Prospects move according to their timetable, not yours - and there is nothing you can do to change it.

So how do you save the sale?

Well remember, the prospect still has the problem he called you about - and still needs a solution.

Your challenge is to gain "top of mind" awareness - to implant your service in his mind and link it to the nature of the problems you solve.

Then, when the problem pops up and becomes a priority again, in a week or a month or a year from now - and it will - he thinks of you and calls you first.

And the way to make that happen is through good, old-fashioned follow-up.

If you sell a professional, creative, consultative, or technical service, the following 3-part "Triple Play" follow-up system can help you increase your closing rate of leads to sales by as much as 50% or more.

There are 3 components to the system: managed contact, automated contact, and random contact.

Let's take a look at each. They're all simple, and anyone can do them.

First, "managed contact" means you use contact management software - such as Goldmine or Act - to instruct your PC to automatically remind you of when it's time to touch base with any given prospect.

If you've never gotten any feedback from the prospect on the best time to contact him again, you should schedule regular phone or e-mail follow-up at an interval that makes sense to you - perhaps monthly or quarterly.

On the other hand, if the prospect has told you the best time to contact him - e.g., "Call me after Labor Day" - program your contact management software to remind you accordingly.

The second part of the Triple Play Follow-Up system is "automated contact."

This requires you to publish a monthly online newsletter you distribute free to your clients and prospects.

When you get an inquiry or meet a potential client, you always ask "May I sign you up for a free subscription to our on line newsletter?"

Nine out of ten will say yes, allowing you to add their e-mail address to your subscriber list.

Now, a reminder of you and your services - your e-zine - appears in the prospect's mail box every month ... resulting in automated monthly follow-up for all new leads added to your list.

The third type of follow-up is random or sporadic follow-up. This means the follow-up isn't planned; you just do it when the mood or opportunity arises.

My method of random follow-up is to clip articles from the magazines and newspapers I read that would be of interest to a particular client or prospect.

I scribble a brief note on the clipping (often nothing more than "John - FYI - Bob Bly"), put it in a #10 envelope, affix a stamp, and mail it.

And that's the Triple Play Follow-Up system in a nutshell: managed contact ... automated contact via e-newsletter ... random follow-up via the mailing of article clippings.

Any one of these follow-up methods can help make you stand out in your prospect's mind - and separate you from your competitors.

But the 1-2-3 triple follow-up is an unbeatable combination for imprinting your name indelibly on the prospect's memory ... so that when a need for your services does arise, he calls you first.
