Farm Wars

We are a gaslighted nation run by malignant narcissists and sociopaths. A nation that is being deceived into doing its master’s bidding through deceit and trickery by the malevolence of those who would be king and their flying monkeys.

The Narcissist


What is Gaslighting?

This term comes from the 1938 stage play Gas Light, in which a husband attempts to drive his wife crazy by dimming the lights (which were powered by gas) in their home, and then he denies that the light changed when his wife points it out. It is an extremely effective form of emotional abuse that causes a victim to question their own feelings, instincts, and sanity, which gives the abusive partner a lot of power (and we know that abuse is about power and control). Once an abusive partner has broken down the victim’s ability to trust their own perceptions, the victim is more likely to stay in the abusive relationship.


What are Flying Monkeys?

The term “Flying monkeys” was adapted from the movie The Wizard of Oz  to describe those who have been conned by the Narcissist into attacking his victims. In any other circumstance, these  flying monkeys are generally nice and decent people. However, they’ve been convinced through a smear campaign launched by the Narcissist, that  he is the real victim in this situation. The ultimate goal for the Narcissist is to create maximum drama and chaos with himself at the center of it. The reason being is that all this negative attention feeds his insatiable ego. The more chaos he can cause, the more important he feels.

We the People are Victims of Narcissistic Abuse

Like an abused wife we are beaten down, lied to at every turn, isolated from the truth, and torn apart by selfishness and greed. We lay in a pile of our own excrement and call it heaven on earth while we trample each other for the latest gadget tossed our way from corporations that rape us at every turn. And we return to our own vomit as we grovel and lick the hand that feeds us poison on a plate, all the while praising the narcissists who look down on us with disdain and loathing. We are their good little lap dogs. Obedient slaves conditioned to be docile and dependent on the system they created for us to live in. We attack when ordered to, sit on command and give them our lives in exchange for a pat on the head. No wonder we disgust them. Yet, if one of us grows a spine and exposes them for what they are, hell hath no fury like an enraged narcissist. Any thought of rebellion must be crushed.

Narcissists have created this system by promises wrapped in flowery rhetoric designed to deceive, and behind this veil of lies is a program created to enslave. Promises such as:

Food promises – GMOs are good for you

Chemical promises – We cannot live without toxic chemicals

Vaccine promises – Injecting poison into our bodies starting at birth is necessary for health

Education promises – Indoctrination by public schools is the only way to teach our children

Wealth promises – If we work hard for corporations all of our days, we can achieve unlimited wealth

Promises of protection – Law Enforcement is here to serve and protect us

Fancy catch phrases designed to lure unsuspecting benevolent souls into a trap that is anything but benevolent in design and intent. Through programs that espouse wonderful promises of health, wealth and prosperity, the individual consents to enslave him/herself.

We hear the following phrases over and over again, but fail to understand that beneath the contrived surface of what appears to be beneficial, lies a dark underbelly of control and manipulation.


Sustainable Development

Feeding the World through Genetic Engineering

If we only look at the surface, we see nothing but sunshine and roses, and think that by joining in without thorough examination, we are doing good. What we are really doing is swallowing the bait, hook, line and sinker.

Lacking a compassionate bone in their bodies, the narcissists behind these schemes stand to gain nothing but a much needed supply of personal inflation. The words they use do not convey what they are really up to. And what they are really up to is not in our best interests.

The question is, what stage are we in as a nation? There are three stages in a narcissistic relationship:




liarThe first stage, deceive, is when everything is wonderful. We the People are free! Our nation is the best in the world and we are united in democracy! A lie. Narcissists always lie. They say what they must to get you to believe in them and give your life to them.

The second stage, devalue, is when the veneer starts wearing thin and you begin to see behind the curtain. To keep you under control, the narcissist erodes your sense of self worth in order to turn you back around into a good little obedient slave, hanging on his/her every word. Gaslighting is a favorite tactic.

The third stage, discard, is when the narcissist deems that you are of no more value to him/her and decides to move on to the next victim. This is when the real destruction begins. The mask is off and the true nature of the narcissist is up front and in your face. They no longer care what you think and are intent on your destruction.

What stage do you think our country is in? Personally, I think that we are in the latter stage of devaluation, headed quickly into the discard stage, and Lord help us when it is in full swing. The narcissist has no mercy because he/she has no love, compassion, or empathy towards anyone. What the narcissist needs is your destruction. That is the only way to feed his/her need for self-fulfillment.

To see through the gaslighting perpetrated by the narcissist, we need to understand that first and foremost, the truth must be known. The narcissist must be exposed and our lives need to be taken back. The narcissist is an expert liar. When the lies are exposed, the narcissist moves on. It is time to expose the narcissists running our nation. It is the only way to survive the attack.

    […] When I wake up, I start my day with a positive thought, in order to entrain the thinking that will change the perspective of how I think. Einstein once said “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” The current polarity of duality mindset is embedded through our common education; a fiction written by narcissists, gaslighted through emotional abuse inflicted by flying monkeys. (Thank you for the imagery, Barb). […]
