Three Moves Ahead by Bob Rice is a solid synthesis regarding the seemingly disparate aspects of business and chess.

Rice reveals many core aspects of Chess theory and gameplay that can and do apply to business in everyday life.

Weaving the reader into myriad historical business ventures – both successes and failures – the author illustrates what made these particular businesses succeed or fail, and goes to underscore the essential Chess tactics that were involved in those scenarios.  Furthermore, Rice journeys beyond that to show the reader how even more can be gained from further introspection if one carries out that additional mental weightlifting.

The analogies Rice employed in the book to compare the subjects are rather adequate.  Admittedly, some are much stronger than others.  Still, Rice gives the reader ample information to chew on regarding the similarities between chess and business.

A noteworthy point is that, even if the reader isn’t an avid player at all or knows nothing of the game of chess, the author explains himself rather well and is easy to follow as he seamlessly flows from topic to topic within the book.

Three Moves Ahead is definitely something to ponder for business-oriented individuals who are seeking ways to grow.  But even beyond that, the principles of the book can be applied to other aspects of life depending on how creative the individual uses what Rice delineates in the book.

If you’re looking for an additional book along the same lines, but with more Chess flavor to it, go on to read Garry Kasparov’s How Life Imitates Chess: Making The Right Movies, From the Board To The Boardroom.  It’s kind of similar to this book, but from the opposite side of the spectrum.  For me it was more enjoyable than this one, although because am coming at it from a chess perspective than a business point of view.  Still, both complement each other rather well if you’re looking to see ‘two sides of the same coin’.

Book Review: Phantom Self by David Icke

“When you’re the only sane person, you look like the only insane person.”
– Criss Jami

“Nothing is easier than self-deceit.  For what each man wishes, he also believes to be true.”
– Demosthenes

David Icke is surely a controversial speaker.

Icke’s work has come to be known as fascinating as it is wide-ranging, and for good reason.   The man will leave no stone unturned.  He’s not afraid of heading into places other people can’t even fathom, and many have come to appreciate this.

In Phantom Self, David Icke does a resounding job of not only showing various methods the system employs to carve out the consciousness from individuals, but he also shows the numerous facets the system has that play a role in making this process possible.

Throughout the book, Icke makes it a point from differentiating that we have two selves, the more superficial version of us that goes through life unaware of the deeper structure of life and reality, and the deeper level of conscious awareness that holds our unending potential, which is rarely tapped by individual.

Phantom Self showcases some of the previous information that Icke has shown, with good reason.  Much of this information is just as vital now, if not more so, as it was in the past.  And things have only gotten worse globally.

Readers of his previous work will be familiar with some of it.  Still, the information that Icke provides and how he distills it is vital to understanding how individuals and society will shed its shackles from the control grid as long as they take the appropriate action.

Issues such as education, media manipulation, propaganda, technology, genetically modified foods, bloodlines, depopulation/eugenics, Agenda 21/Agenda 2030, weather modification, et al are addressed quite extensively throughout.  The push for a transhumanistic future is also saliently detailed by the author.

As an avid researcher, my one qualm with the book is that Icke doesn’t source all of his statements.  He does provide quite a few sources, but a lot of the information that he writes as ‘matter of fact’ would be much stronger if he at least buttressed those statements with how he came to those conclusions.  There’s nothing wrong with giving your opinions about a matter, and they surely might be facts mind you, however, in order for some people to visualize the extent of control and corruption they will need to see a roadmap.  A roadmap is made up of those signposts, and those signposts in research are sources.

Be that as it may, that last fact doesn’t detract from the book.  Phanton Self provides more than ample information for it to be worth one’s money.

How icke chose to conclude the book resonates quite well, and certainly makes a lot of sense.

Its through individual self awareness and realization of our deeper conscious state that we as individuals will be able to see that we are the solution to the system.

Aggression will not be the solution to overturning the system.  In fact, the opposite is the case.  The system is ready for aggression in more ways than most realize.  Once we realize the depth of the power of our true selves – the power of the love for another – we will be able to detach ourselves from the meaningless and head on a new path.

The system will be changed only by people removing their support from it in every way shape or form.  Then, and only then will we be able to birth a new process and reign in the beginnings on the morrow.

As Ghandi once said:

“You assist an evil system most effectively by obeying its orders and decrees.  An evil system never deserves such allegiance.  Allegiance to it means partaking of this evil.  A good person will resist an evil system with his or her own soul.”

Book Review: Web Of Debt, By Ellen Brown

“The real truth of the matter is that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson.”
– Franklin D. Roosevelt

Ellen Hodgson Brown, J.D., is author of the recently published Public Banking Solution, but also the incisive and well documented The Web Of Debt – The Shocking Truth About Our Money System And How We Can Break Free. Her latter work is what will be covered lightly here.

For most of the modern world, money has been a staple of everyday life. A great deal of our daily functions revolve around this much used, but poorly understood economic tool.

In recent years, the monetary system has grown to untold levels. With the dollar losing value year after year, student loan debts reaching preposterous levels, and debt itself growing unabated in many different sectors of finance, it’s no wonder that the ‘too-big-too-fail’ economic system has its issues.

This is not to say a collapse is imminent as many alternative media pundits espouse.  In fact, am more of the mind that what we are in fact in is what has been called a ‘controlled descent” by former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Catherine Austin Fitts.

Getting back on track, many of the above issues stem from our inherent corrupt monetary system. However, what this book does not cover is how the black-budget has been leeching money from the public sector, and transferring by the trillions [according to Ms. Fitts] to the black sector.

The modern birth of this [public] financial control grid is covered in extensive and mind-blowing detail in Brown’s Web Of Debt book.  [Note: For a deeper analysis into the covert side of the off-the-books financial control grid, please take a gander at Joseph P. Farrell’s Covert Wars And Breakaway Civilizations – The Secret Space Program, Celestial Psyops and Hidden Conflicts.]

Pulling no punches, this historic piece has got gall. Not afraid to name names, and branching through centuries of historical data, Brown’s work showcases what the financial, political, and elite minds of these times were pondering.

This particular piece also offers data/ideas on some of the vital issues we face and how we might overcome said issues.

From the inception to the private, and heinous Federal Reserve, up to current times, the reader will get ample evidence of the financial mishaps/crimes that are taking place. This is important, because much of the populace is unaware of these dealings.

If you wish to know the truth about our financial monetary system, the truth about its wide-ranging and sinister history, and ways in which to enrich your knowledge on this esoteric subject, then this book is definitely for you.

“Recreational shopping is the shortest point between two points: you and broke”
– Victoria Moran

This is being written in order to help some friends out showing some of my person mishaps that have taken place, as well as hopefully aid anybody else with any ideas that might help them in any way/shape/form.

In Financial Flagship – Managing Oversights [Part-1], we covered some of the more basic financial oversights that yours truly was partaking in. From there in we analyzed how much was the total amount spent wasted due to such actions.

Now, we’re going to cover some additional mistakes that were zapping much of our financial latitude away at the outset.

Please keep in mind, these are conservative estimates for most of these.

Gym Membership @ LA Fitness:

Weekly: $50 [two people]
Monthly: $200
Yearly: $2400

Fast Food:

Weekly: $75
Monthly: $300
Yearly: $3600

Clothing:

Weekly: $20
Monthly: $80
Yearly: $960

Total from all financial oversights:

Weekly:$145
Monthly: $580
Yearly: $6960

Again, very similar to last time, if that last number isn’t disturbing, [SN] nothing will be.

Am showing you all this in hopes that you can all learn from my lapses in judgment.

Its easy to show one’s track record when its ahead of the stampede, running sky high, with nothing to cast shadows on your endeavors.

It takes guts however, to carry out some in depth insights into what kind of mistakes one is doing daily. With that said, what you ultimately do with this information is up to you. This is just shown in hopes to help people realize what kind of financial leaks they might undertaking that is blowing a hole into their savings/retirement funds at an enormous rate.

Do you carry out any similar things that you realize could be done better, or avoided? What have you learned from it? Hope that regardless of what’s taking place in each of our daily lives, a move forward is in the process or already being undertaken.

Ultimately, be it to spend, or to save, the choice is y/ours.

Retail Rapture – American Estimated To Spend Over $700 Billion Dollars On Largest 5 Holidays In 2015

Shopping

By: Zy Marquiez
January 15, 2016

“Recreational shopping is the shortest distance between two points: You and Broke.”
– Victoria Moran

The new year has begun in earnest. Goals have been set by individuals. The sun is rising on a ‘new beginning’.

With that in mind, where we travel on our way forward into the future has everything to do with where we’ve been.

Let’s see where we were financially – as a nation – in the year 2015.

What follows is an amalgamation of the biggest holidays in the American landscape, and what the establishment estimated the nation would spend as a whole during those days:

Fourth Of July

The establishment had expected $6 Billion dollars spent for this holiday

Labor Day

It was estimated that $13.5 Billion would be spent on labor day what.

Halloween

Americans planned on spending $7.4 Billion on Halloween alone. P.S. That includes $350 million dollars for pet Costumes. You read that correct.  

Thanksgiving

During Thanksgiving, which is off course now notoriously coupled with Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, Americans were estimated to spend $80 Billion.

Christmas

At the top of the proverbial pyramid of consumerism, Americans were expected to spend $600 Billion dollars.

The total estimated Americans would be spent just on those 5 Holidays was $706.9 Billion dollars. That’s nigh 3 quarters of a Trillion dollars. That’s a lot of freaking money paper!

Some will instantly say, but those are estimates and they would be right. But estimates have precedents, and while the number could be lower, it could also be higher. Especially since it doesn’t seem like Retail Rapture is ending any time soon.

—————————–

One of the main tenets of this blog is empowering the individual. In order to forge ahead, individuals, which are the foundation of society, need to be cognizant of what they do if they want to move forward – breakawaybeyond the current system that taxes every aspect of y/our life.

With that said, in order for the nation to spend nearly 3/4 a Trillion Dollars, it takes a lot of individuals to carry that out.

Ponder this: what would happen if the entire country saved just 10% of that money? That seems quite reasonable. That would be a savings of $70 Billion in one year, as a nation.

And people are saying that the economy is going to collapse? Are you kidding me!

In any case, narrowing down this to the local, individual level, what would saving just 10% of your Holiday expenditures help you accomplish? Ruminate on that a bit. In fact, take your time and think long and hard how much saving just 10% of your Holiday money can help you building your future. There is a lot that can be accomplished given how much money was estimated to be spent.

Being cognizant of the above, where do we head too financially, as individuals, from here?

That, my friends, only you know can know.

Because the choice, is ultimately yours.

What Does It Mean To ‘Breakaway’?

Retail Rapture – Christmas Shopping

“Recreational shopping is the shortest distance between two points: You and Broke.”

Approaching the bottom of the 9th of the year, the Holidays are winding down.

People are snazzy, have a pep in their step, and are spending dollars ubiquitously like their lives depend on it.

Its that last fact that is often quite overlooked.

The holidays are used by the establishment in a myriad of ways. Most duplicitous among the underhanded reasons lies the profit motive. This is the least analyzed, and often most harmful of all notions parroted during the holiday season to individuals & families.

Why is such the case? Because many folks will go all-in during holiday shopping, and some do it without even having the funds to do so [i.e. credit cards, loans, borrowed money, etc.]

If the holidays truly are about quantity shopping quality time, as many people are quick to expound, then the material component to the holidays isn’t needed to carry out such.

For something to have meaning, the time/experience/memory had should be exceptional to the individual. This, and this alone, should be what is related as a message. However, we know the establishment and deceitful media does not ever come close to that idea without touching the material realm.

This isn’t to say that a gift, something tangible, cannot have meaning. Far from it.

Meaning, most of the time, comes from the eyes of the beholder in a sense. Overlooked many times though, is the fact that meaning many times comes from how others see things, which just so happen to be material a lot [most?] of the time.

For instance, an object by itself is just an object. But we have all seen the power that any material object can have – no matter what it is – over people when others besides themselves crave it.

If an object isn’t lusted for by thousands, people usually don’t give it a second look. However, the second ‘everyone’ wants something, then its en vogue, in style, the new fad.

Some examples of this are phones, games, toys, purposes, clothing, brands [which comes from the word branding, which has a nefarious history, but that’s another story] so on and so forth.

At its most basic premise, what we are talking about here is the overwhelming urge to shop, for the sake of shopping. It is recreational shopping at its finest.

And if that is what is carried out, rather than the search of something meaningful for the happiness of other, then its void of substance.

Why is this? Because shopping can be done at any moment in the year, any time, any place, any locale, and the only reason most people shop during the holidays is because the corporate conglomerates and media have helped socially engineer retail rapture to unheard of levels.

The amount spent during the holidays is ludicrous. It’s the type of resources used that could literally change entire families/communities/regions, but are used to shop for things that most people aren’t in need of.

Sure, it’s called meaningful, but why should something material that’s purchased during a time that you’re ingratiated to spend money on, have any more meaning than any other time that you are taught to spend money on?

Here are some memes expounded by the establishment/media and how much money was expected to be spent for each particular holiday:

– If its 4th of July, you’re a patriot. Of course, with the establishment expecting $6 Billion for this holiday, why wouldn’t they carry out propaganda. True Translation: spend money to ‘support’ your country corporations.

– If you spend money on Labor Day, you’ve earned it due to hard work. Then again, with the establishment having expected $13.5 Billion to be spent on labor day what wouldn’t they say? True Translation: you’ve earned the right to line corporate pockets to the hilt.

– If its during Halloween, then it’s a celebration and whathaveyou. And this has become an enormous time of the year for money spent compared to what it used to be decades ago. If you’re skeptical it was estimated Americans planned on spending $7.4 Billion on Halloween alone. True Translation: spend money because that’s what celebrations are for. P.S. That includes 350 million dollars for pet Costumes. You read that correct.  

– Thanksgiving? One needs to be thankful of course! Coupled to this is Black Friday, in which people spent in 2014 $89 Billion in online sales alone. True Translation: spend even more money.

– Finally, Christmas. The reason for all bliss to exist. The propaganda is extremely high, especially given the fact that Americans are expected to spend $600 Billion dollars. True Translation: quantity/objects are where meanings are at, thus, spend money.

In none of the examples above is the press ever even dabbling into just spending quality time with people, without lining the pockets of the corporate cartels. The mere thought is sacrilegious. Such is an act of suicide for presstitutes to engage in such abhorrent behaviour. How dare they?

This is why it rests solely on the individual – the foundation of society – to be prudent, incisive, and rather discriminatory in the way that any money is spent, especially during the holiday season. Coupled with that is the fact that the very loot money that’s gathered by the corporate crooks is the profits used to throw the populace under the bus at every given turn.

That laughing sound behind the curtains is irony by way.

However, complaining about corporations that ‘run the show’ and giving them dollars day in and out, every holiday in and out, having that money used against you, is shooting yourself in the foot is shooting yourself in both feet and blaming the weapon for you shooting yourself.

Spend money? Sure. We just be wise about it.

Just remember, quality is quality.   Quantity is quantity. Some people use them interchangeably, – unknowingly [more gifts = more love] – but they are not.

In reality: quality = love / more quality = more love.

Now there’s a choice you won’t hear the current paradigm expound upon any time soon.

Be prudent.

Have fun.

Enjoy your time with those you love. That’s what life is really about.

America 2020 – What Will The Landscape Look Like?

By: Zy Marquiez
December 18, 2015

We are going to put imagination to a test.   You are each encouraged to do this on your own.

Put pen to paper, and imagine the world as it will be during the year 2020.

Let’s begin.

Monsanto‘s stock will be completely eviscerated as more information comes forth regarding their full range of cancerous products and genetically modified food garbage.

Cyber false flags will increase at a monumental rate. Said events will be used by the mainstream media presstitutes and the comptrollers to push further for a digital currency. Most people will be skeptical given the banking /financial establishment’s unstable records.

The powers that shouldn’t be will keep pushing the Vaccine agenda, but they will stir a hornet’s nest as millions of parents, specifically women, will draw the line at forceful vaccinations [such as SB277] which will also merge into a greater agenda, that being forceful medical procedures. Lines will be drawn. The parents will make sure there is hell to pay if anyone touches their children.

People will figure how to breakaway from fluorideFluoridation information will go widespread, as information will reach critical mass as countless more towns will continue to clamor for the removal of fluoridation such as this, and this, and this, and this, oh and this. Untold numbers of folks will begin to realize the benefits of real, clean water, and will purchase, and create their own filters as time goes by.

Aspartame will be seen as equal to diseases by a sizeable portion of the population and outright bans will be requested, which storm all the way up to congress as more and more people continue to file thousands of adverse side effects from the consumption of such products poisons.

The mainstream media will no longer be seen by the majority of the populace as the most trusted news source. Their numbers will continue to plummet, which will force buy-outs, mergers and outright shutdowns of entire news stations. More independent journalists will detach from the system and they will be coming out in droves. They will smell blood, and the sharks will circle, for the first REAL time in quite a while.

More cancer cures will be found, and an exponential number of people will find out the truth about the causes/cures for cancer and how Big Pharma/Big Medica and the comptrollers are responsible for the suppression of many [most?] of the cures.   An increasing number of people will also begin to seek alternative remedies for their diseases, and even more will learn how to combat diseases in more ways than most can imagine.

Organic, non-genetically modified, gluten free, locally grown fresh foods, will grow exponentially to the tune of tens of billions of dollars, with an outside shot at overtaking 100 billion as more corporations position themselves for the global change. This will propel a tidal wave of companies into a bottleneck for decent portions of the market share. New faces will rise, old ones will fall, but folks still remain weary given the previous behavior of corporations in years past.

Tangible assets will grow in people’s portfolios, and those said assets will become more readily known by the ‘average’ investor. People will take the reins of their financial flagship and steer it where it makes most sense for them, and not the corporations.   Savings rate will be the highest its been in decades. Banks won’t be as trusted as before, even though they will continue to clamor for a digital currencies.

Average health in the United States, and in many western nations, will begin to shift due to the unprecedented change of people shifting to real foods. More people will quit smoking and drinking due to the deleterious effects those vices cause on their health.

Homegrown foods will increase at an extremely rapid rate, and people will begin saving bucket loads of money due to this transition. Their health will also benefit greatly from such an endeavor.

Tyrannical government players will continue to play the ‘gun-control’ cards after real shootings coupled with false-flag operations. However, they will realize that similar to the Vaccine Agenda, the Gun-Control card will only be worse for them and will serve to wake people up as its continuing to do.

The controlled descent of the economy will have begin to shift into a holding pattern, as 3D printing, coupled with local/online small businesses which are infused with cash via crowdfunding programs that will continue to take the entire globe by storm as individuals stampede into taking their power back. Manufacturing within the United States will begin to look better than it has in over a decade. Small business will be a boon to the economy, especially local ones.

The fracture that is taking place behind the scenes between different warring factions of the globalist empires – some of them no doubt breakaways – will amplify in breath and scope. Mysterious murders and deaths will litter the American/European/global landscape as hidden players keep vying for power in this global game of chess. Who will win? That’s up to you to decide.

New whistleblowers will emerge within the Cancer, Vaccine, Health, Biotech, Financial and Intelligence structures. Data dumps will be the name of the game, and this will cause chaos behind the scenes.

Lockheed Martin’s stock will continue to grow due to their unprecedented technological innovation directly tied to the Breakaway Structure and powerplayers. Many space related corporations/assets will grow, many of them privately, and a select few will hold more power than people imagine. Space Ports will begin to grow en mass within the BRICS Nations. Space Tourism will be the talk of the day, but false flags will morph on the horizon beyond our atmosphere in the form of ‘accidents’.   Some battle lines will be drawn in the sand in space between the Breakaways and newer players.

But more importantly, you will realize how to play their game, which is by removing yourself from the board completely thus not allowing your time/money/energy to be tapped by such a noxious system.

The question isn’t why would those events take place? The question is why not? Some strong currents of change are already being felt.

The power will ultimately lie in the individual. Will the individual choose to continue the toxic life, or will they realize that there are other doors, other options to be able to live a better, happier, more product life for themselves? Time will tell.

All of this will ensue with billions of choices. You can either help your freedom, or help your slavery. In the end, everyone helps polish one side of the coin or the other.

—————————————–

On the pillars of tomorrow, Orwell and Huxley will be sitting. While relaxing on rocking chairs, volleying back and forth in a heated game of chess, they eventually note the change in the currents of humanity. Each will gaze at each other, nod, smirk, realizing that for the first time in modern times the tsunami of chaos that was heading in our direction, was redirected right at the powers that shouldn’t be.

Then Orwell proceeds to tell Huxley, “Guess Tesla was right?”

“Regarding what?” Huxley counters.

“Last week at our roundtable discussions remember he said ‘Every living being is an engine geared to the wheelwork of the universe. Though seemingly affected only by its immediate surroundings, the sphere of influence extends to infinite distance.’

“Guess humanity is figuring it out after all…” finalizes Huxley.

Orwell nods in appreciation as they fade away into the memories of the Universe.

The end? Or the beginning?
