The Hidden Hand of Controlled Opposition

    “The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.” -Vladimir Lenin

    by Zen Gardner

    This concept eludes public awareness to a scary degree. It’s similar to the reality of false flag operations, the epitome of carefully planned societal manipulation by unseen forces who have no regard for the human condition other than to control it.

    This is so very similar to the slogan of the nefarious Mossad: “By way of deception, thou shalt do war.”

    And the war is on us; for the subjugation, exploitation and control of….us.

    The human race.

    It’s all misdirection, controlled opposition for the mind. This game of ruthless deception is endemic to the fabric of the entire matrix.

    Useful Idiots and the Puppeteers

    The obvious NATO/US backed insurgences in Syria, the Ukraine, Venezuela, as well as most of the Middle East and now Africa and other nations, past and present, are perfect examples of controlled opposition on the political stage. As awful as that is, the problem is way deeper than that.

    We’ve all been useful idiots at one time or other. No one’s been fully conscious or completely independent of these influences all of their lives. We all have had to compromise in some manner just to survive in the matrix.

    This social landscape is an engineered one, and we help build and maintain it at varying degrees of conscious awareness until we disengage. Some aspects become more obvious than others to different people. The banking system for example has been getting hammered by the awakening. The full extent of its control is known by very few, but people are getting the idea. And it leads to more questions.

    That’s how it works.

    Many people come to the awakening via the health crisis we’re facing, with contaminated and mutated foods being forced into the market without the slightest compunction from our ever-so-caring slightly disguised crypto fascist central State. Just going to natural food or natural or alternative medicine sites is another way to go into the Wardrobe and land in a Narnia of Truth they had no idea existed.

    For those looking to help others, this is a great way to approach someone still under the spell to get them started looking around. GMO awareness has jacked and is a great entry point. And just like the bankster revolving door with government, the Monsanto/Merck et al. infestation of so-called health agencies, this will make their heads spin if they’re willing to see it.

    Geoengineering and Fukushima are other portals to the awakening. The surreal potential ELE nature of these assaults is seriously disrupting many entrained minds.

    Finding out the extent of our own involvement is a trip in itself, and will lead to many wonderful, sometimes disturbing discoveries. Even more so is realizing the source of information we were trusting was tainted, twisted and distorted, or as in most cases, a complete fabricated lie, propped up by the energy of those that believed it. Matrix battery pods powering the collective.

    What Really Matters

    Religion, politics, education and the economic meme are of course the most predominant in the mainstream mind. But important things like where we came from, why we’re even here and where we’re going are barely addressed, and if they are it’s all gobbledygook designed to confuse and stifle the human spirit. Or freeze it into a debilitating religious paradigm where we wait for the cavalry to save us and are told “the powers that be are ordained by God”.

    This is the true controlled opposition, although we’ll get to the modern oracles of this insidious ploy soon enough.

    We have to see this for what it is. Anything short is not going to cut it. Just about every aspect of the opposing paradigms we’ve been handed as the absolute truth are designed. And even outside protesting elements who seem to know what’s going on are often generated by, or soon channeled by, these same overlords.

    A doctor puts his hand over his chest during a "House call" rally against proposed healthcare reform legislation at the Capitol in Washington
    Here’s where and how the manipulation kicks in. Just like the controlled State media propaganda, there have to be enough apparent facts to cultivate credibility. Just enough. They won’t overdo it unless it’s some innocuous subject. Many of those “facts” will be wrapped in fear and violence as well, designed to cauterize your sensitivity while heightening your fear.

    Religions have effectively done this for eons. Tapping into your inner knowledge of the spiritual and mixing in a few truths, they have no problem steering you straight into a numbed state of docile subservience to some weird-ass hierarchy of spiritual and physical abuse. In the name of God of course. Name dropping, anyone? Oh, and in the name of that guy they can send you and your kids off to fight their wars, build and support oppressive exploitative corporations, or be a professional gladiator and gain fame and fortune pounding other contestants into the ground to the roar of the frenzied, flag waving mob.

    It’s Rarely Black and White – Deliberately

    Layered in the imposed matrix are many overlapping memes and projected illusions, rendering fundamental empowering truths either hidden altogether, disguised or distorted. In a loving, uncontrolled conscious world there would be no need to hide anything. Instead, this mutant matrix system is built on deceit in order to spiritually disconnect and disempower those they wish to exploit.

    Think of the mega volumes of information and technology being held from public knowledge under the guise of “national security”. How about “closed door meetings” or “need to know basis” or the vast labyrinth of secret ops operating in their vast network built on compartmentalization in the name of science or military confidentiality.

    Now slide over to the Vatican sitting on brutally gained secret history accounts for centuries.

    Does this make any sense to you?

    Why do they keep all this as separate concepts? Connect them and they form a picture, a very clear one. Our entire society is completely staged, controlled and with vastly sinister intent.


    (Fareed Zakaria is a confirmed CFR member)

    Who’s Controlling Whom?

    I try to be very careful about what I read and certainly what I “take on board” in my mind and heart. I’ll look at just about anything, even mainstream drivel, to keep an eye on stuff and get the pulse of what’s going on.

    But I’m very careful. I know I get fooled sometimes like anyone, but I’m not afraid to admit when I’m wrong. In fact it’s a joy every time that happens. Hey, I got another damn velcro hook off my spiritual body!

    And media outlets and information sources are something to look at very closely and carefully. And keep watching.

    It’s never, or should I say rarely, totally clear cut as to who is who. Someone can be piping out a high percentage of true information, but then throw in some massive monkey wrench that few see coming. Sometimes it’s the tone. I’m skeptical of crass self-promoters who are caught up in their image. If there’s that much ego there’s that much less conscious awareness, and the love starts running thin. If people can’t see past all the evil in this world to the wondrous beauty of the Universe and the amazing unlimited potential of the human spirit, I wonder about their information, or at least how it’s used.

    But no one’s perfect, so we need to see and process the good and the Truth, and chuck the husks in the trash. It can take time and things morph, so it’s all part of the process.


    Snowden, Color Revolutions, Wikileaks, Occupy, “Parties” and Other Corruptible Things

    Keep a close eye out on these supposed whistleblowers. While we need real ones to come forward desperately, those that attain public acclamation by way of major media attention are always suspect. This is because the corporate media is completely controlled. They may let out some truth, but it’s always to inoculate us against the full truth. There is no more responsible mainstream media today.

    These 6 big corporations running everything media are a fascist cabal.

    I’ve written much about Snowden and my suspicions, as have many others. When the Wikileaks phenomenon appeared, I and many others were again very skeptical. It was playing right into the globalists’ plan, not the least of which is to muzzle the internet and smokescreen real events. Like most disinfo outlets, it conveniently sidestepped, minimized or dodged many of the really important issues. And sure enough, Assange was groomed in the Oligarchs’ machine for years. When he came out and said 9/11 was NOT an inside job…that cemented the deal.

    It’s very similar to how these “partial” whistleblowers never mention Israel or the Zionist influence. Incredible.

    The Occupy movement was clearly engineered to be a controlled opposition release valve. Wonderful things still happened, but they managed to dilute and mis-steer the message enough to diffuse its greatest potential effects. The Orwellian stomp down by the Police State was off the charts, and of course the State run media made nothing of it.

    Gone. But people got involved, that’s good.

    The Tea Party? Again, born of a driven passion to stand up within that paradigm. Now? Zionist stooges Michelle Bachman, Glenn Beck and Hannity types are all over a wimped out “movement”, a form of expression that desperate middle class folks were joining in for the first times in their lives. Neutered and detoured once again. And now a ridiculed arm of the republican party.


    Who Are the Moles?

    Who is this controlled opposition? Here is a recent example that came to light that would normally go unreported by the mainstream media.  This is a good sign.

    Did an undercover cop help organise a major riot?

    From the Stephen Lawrence inquiry we learned that the police were institutionally racist. Can it be long before we learn that they are also institutionally corrupt? Almost every month the undercover policing scandal becomes wider and deeper. Today I can reveal a new twist, which in some respects could be the gravest episode yet. It surely makes the case for an independent public inquiry – which is already overwhelming – unarguable.

    Before I explain it, here’s a summary of what we know already. Thanks to the remarkable investigations pursued first by the victims of police spies and then by the Guardian journalists Rob Evans and Paul Lewis (whose book Undercover is as gripping as any thriller), we know that British police have been inserting undercover officers into protest movements since 1968. Their purpose was to counter what they called subversion or domestic extremism, which they define as seeking to “prevent something from happening or to change legislation or domestic policy … outside the normal democratic process”. Which is a good description of how almost all progressive change happens. Source

    Their influence is vast. We have no idea how many inroads have been made and how the military industrial government complex has infiltrated and controlled all we see and hear at this point, even within our alternative community.

    It’s staggering, but it doesn’t frighten me. It’s expected.

    Follow your heart. You’ll know.


    So Will the Wake Up Be In Time?

    Clearly we’re up against massively orchestrated activities, outlets and manufactured disinformation, and there’s much controversy on this subject. It’s a huge part of their agenda. Never mind…it’s just the matrix at work. Rise above it.

    But will humanity “get it” in time?

    It’s always in time…individually and collectively. Once you’ve popped into Now awareness and even begin to grasp the fact that all this is a sham and a fabricated facade, you’re virtually home free.

    Your participation in propping up this fake social landscape will fall off like over-sized pants.

    It just happens.

    Enjoy it, but be responsive. We’ve all got to make a difference. That’s where the revolution lies. Right there.

    Respond. Consciously. And in love.

    Much love and all the best, Zen

    1. “If people can’t see past all the evil in this world to the wondrous beauty of the Universe and the amazing unlimited potential of the human spirit, I wonder about their information, or at least how it’s used.” – this is the best test out there………….I’m always suspicious when someone talks about a revolution but cannot see the beauty of a flower. Whistleblowers – I wonder if the truth needs to go mainstream to prove a point. Sometimes I’m not sure. I need to play my music live to sell records, or?………………but you are right: in the now, we melt every triangle. Thanks Zen for putting together the pieces.

    2. It is so hard to get across to the Alex Jones followers. He never criticized Israel or brings up Zionism but he will mention the banks, just not the fact that the Zionist control them. He is most definitely a gate keeper and a dangerous one at that since he can easily mislead almost 1/3 of the awakening movement. Yet, like you say, he has done a fair amount of good work helping people wake up. One thing I’ve noticed is the amount of money pouring his way which is another red flag considering the majority of his listeners are as broke as the rest of us. Thank you Zen, much love bro.

    3. If the veil was ripped to shreds and a mass awakening happened in an instant, what would really happen? Would people be dropping left and right from heart attacks, strokes, aneurysms? There would be people running around with their heads in their hands going mad.
      Slow and gentle might be a good way for this to happen, with some going ahead to “hold some hands”. We are in such a rush to reconnect with the divine, or source or what ever you want to call god, but when in a rush, are we prepared for the extra homework?

      I say this only because I have been pushing myself to “get there” and some pretty crazy glitches in the matrix let me know I was being listened to. I listened but have been knocked off my feet. It is all love, but it is not all rainbows and lollypops when you have to go deep inside the rabbit hole. Sometimes loving guidance has a strict hand.
      Zen, this one spoke to me so personally. It seems cosmic consciousness is flowing and blossoming.
      Big Hugs! Carla

    4. Great article. The controlled opposition is something everyone should be aware of. It’s everywhere. Practically everything has been hijacked, including the environmental movements that echo Agenda 21.

    5. I think the sooner we all get space travel the sooner we can all go off to another planet and start our own ways of life up. Vegans would go to there own planet…vegetarians to the own planet organic eating omnivores to there’s and other peoples with different ideologys and concepts would go to there own planets. Thus starting a new chain of evolution events creating new path ways in the tree of life……

      • Because if we lose the battle on earth, then the war resistance will need to carry on from other planets. Basically just like star wars movies with the Rebels station in hideouts on other planets.

    6. Parts of the whole add up to one ginormous holographic multi-dimensional jigsaw puzzle! OK so maybe a few pieces are missing, but now we see a big picture. I have some models of conciousness that explain a lot. But assuming we are part of the part that HAS got the picture, it’s extra-important to balance the INNER process along with the outer process, and NOT MISS THE BEAUTY along the way. If we are too close to anything we can’t see the context. Try to contact me telepathically/empathically. I’m listening!

    7. We just have to keep pulling at the strings on the frayed ends of the veil. Every once in a while, you pull a string and the veil weakens with a very thin, yet large hole. Other times you may pull a string and the darn veil bunches up and is harder to see through. Pull a string, sit for a moment and listen to your heart – then choose another string. They keep trying to sew the darn thing back up, but they can’t work fast enough without some major unnatural patches being used – and more are beginning to recognize those patches as well. So, we keep pulling and those that don’t know the veil is there, but have eyes to see – they will see through it. 😉

    8. I’ve figured out who the controlled opposition(and their ignorant followers) is a long time ago. People who use the word “matrix”. If you’re that retarded not to pick that The Matrix is a Zionist propaganda film then God help you. You are not “awake”. Another word used by the controlled opposition. Stop mindlessly spitting out the jingoistic intellectual filth of people like Alex Jones et al. Then, you’ll be able to see the issues from all sides and understand that conspiracies do not exist in isolation, or, even exist in exclusion to other plans which have been formulated. Quite the opposite.

    9. Zen – first of all, thank you for this truly wonderful website! You’ve helped me immeasurably with my awakening.

      I’m writing to you from Alma College in Alma, Michigan. Referred to as ‘Scotland, U.S.A’, this expensive-ass small private liberal arts college reeks of Freemasonry of the Scottish Rite. The logo is a pine cone on a branch, third eye symbolism. The pine river runs through Alma.The buildings on campus are all uniformly red brick. Greek life includes Sigma Chi and Tau Kappa Epsilon, with their alumni on the board of directors … These are the stepping stones into the ‘brotherhood’. One of the most lavish Masonic homes in the states is just down the road. The land the college is built on was donated by a mister Ammi Wright, who also sold the Masons the old Alma Sanitarium ( now “Masonic Pathways”) for … $1. His grave is adorned with an obelisk. Lodge #244 is conveniently located down the street from “frat row”. It’s possible that Alma is on a leyline convergence, from the maps I’ve seen. Most of the professors enlightened … Mortarboard hats and Saturnian black robes and all of the pomp and circumstance ritual you’d expect. It was a hell of a place to wake up to my senior year.

      The Hidden Hand is apparent if you know how to look – to tie in to this post.

      Much Love,

      • So glad you woke up to it in the midst of it, slams it home! You’ll be glad for that, no matter how discomfiting. Alma means soul, I guess you know. What we need to do is reclaim these energy centers. Give it a shot. Look for the monuments and feel for the vortecies. Work there. You’ll meet initial resistance but wow will help arrive!…I’ve done it. We surely are “strategically placed”… 😉

    10. Grrrr8 article Zen! For today’s thought: When we view these perpetrators with “seeing eyes” it is apparent that we are beholding an endless parade of naked people wearing only masks. The ultimate opera….Comedy & Tragedy :)

        • Core question Zenster! I love a challenge so here it goes from my book: The “best action” is to:

          (1)Connect with our earth mother….utilize the purest things naturally provided…stay grounded
          (2)Connect with others of like kinship….exchange of educational benefit….more eyes on the enemy
          (3)Think ahead and plan for the worst….if it doesn’t happen you were ready anyway
          (4)Meditate….(don’t think analytically)…..silence…..be still…. practice connection with Source
          (5)Create…..don’t buy anything…..if you live in a mud hut then build a mud man
          (6)Contribute….share your hands….acquired skills or God given talent….help others.
          (7)Laugh……self explanatory
          (8)Health….maintain your ship…..if it’s sinking you can’t rescue anyone else
          (9)Fun…..seek out the joys of life….if you ride a motorcycle….ride like ya’ stole it

          This is what I practice Zenster…..and sometimes I just rest….

          Love ya’ Bro’

    11. The one thing that i remember the most clearly over the past 40 years of my school days at Brandeis University in 1970’s are my student adviser’s words that when he was growing up that his grand parents and parents used the term “‘goyishe kup,’” meaning that the “Non-Jews are Stupid”
      Later in life I learned that the exact translation of “GOYISHE KUP” means that the “Cattle are STUPID”..
      I remember him recalling what his father told him when he was growing up in Eastern Europe. One of them being that when his father was in high school he and a group of friends would skip school early on Fridays and go over to his friend’s father’s butcher shop. That they would buy at cost any cows , that had not been butchered by the end of the day on Friday before the start of Shabat . They would take the cow home and wash it and then the boys would procede to “beat the udders of the cows so that they would swell up and turn pink” so as to sell them to the “GOYISHE KUP” as milk producing cows.
      The part that I remember him asking me if the East Europeans are so “naive, so gullible and so stupid” to buy an old “non milk producing cows” from a bunch of young Jewish Boys.
      So re-thinking of it now I agree with the Jewish saying that the “GOYISHE KUP” are indeed” Stupid” as they believe that a Bunch of Arab Moslem Kids who were not able to Fly a Cessna Airplane took it upon themselves to FLY a Jumbo 747 and outwitted the US Militaryand Civilian authorities. The “Jewish Lightning Insurance Scam” of the 1960’s is still alive and well has been put to good use by Larry Silverstein in putting 15 million down and comming out with 7 billion dollars for buidings that no one wanted to buy because it would have cost a billion dollars to remove the asbestos from. Then on top of that the people in America actually believe that they actually decide who is elected President or for that that actual VOTE is really counted and makes a difference in deciding who represents them in the White House and congress.

      Oy Veh, I agree that the American Non-Jews are indeed “GOYISHE KUP” or “STUPID CATTLE”

      • well put together!! the good news is that we’re chipping away at the herd – who’ve heard the word – and we “metastasize” faster than fabricated, hate fear and greed…. the war is on…

    12. Just seeing the title reminded me of something a talk show host mentioned a couple of days ago concerning the American presidency… that TPTB choose both candidates – the one they want to win the election and the one that will run against (the designated loser).

      Seems obvious in retrospect, but hearing it spoken aloud at the time was refreshing.

    13. Great post Zen. I have to thank you for being a large part of where I am today. It’s only been about two years and when the realization hit, it was like running full speed into a brick wall. Anger, denial, depression, well you know. And trying to scream the truth at the top of my lungs only isolated me from friends and loved ones. Nowadays it’s easier to try to enlighten strangers.
      here’s a hilarious clip of Glenn Beck putting Vicks Vaporub under his eyes to make himself tear up and cry.

      • clip??
        and yes, it’s been wonderful following your path since you first came on here – so inspiring! Yes, it gets easier to handle, in a way, although things are always fundamentally staggering – ha!!

    14. It was a retired Bank of England whistleblower who told me about the debt-free and interest-free Bradbury Pound. Check it out in its centenary year – THE solution for dealing with the banksters.

    15. Yet again, your bloodhound-like intuition has led you to sniff out what we need to know at exactly the right moment. Thank you, Zen! The pervasiveness of ‘controlled opposition’ has bothered me for quite a while now, having seen it within many institutions trusted by people who are aware and ‘awake’ (that word is becoming a bit of a cliche, but will do for now)
      In UK, one shining example is ‘The Guardian’ newspaper. This is seen as a bastion for liberal intellectuals, but it has revealed itself to be just another Establishment mouthpiece. It became in-your-face apparent in the last year or two, in its slanted Syria coverage. Further back, there was a puzzling approval of the Iraq war from several journalists, but only puzzling until the overall pattern of control system stroking is detected.
      What could be less controlled than the ‘Stop the War Coalition’, honest peace seekers may believe. Well, even this worthy organisation may unwittingly host a nest of vipers. At one of their meetings, a key speaker had the phrase ‘common purpose’ in his address, a strange turn of phrase or ‘freudian slip’ My trust in STW vanished when two speakers at a London meeting demanded that Syrian Nun Sister Agnes should not be invited to speak. This is a lady who could have given first hand testimony of the horrors inflicted on Syria by Western backed so-called ‘rebels’. To plot a course through the minefield of disinformation set for us, we are going to need to cultivate all our powers of discernment.

      • well said et Set! They have to seem to slide toward the overwhelming rise of awareness and alternative activity so they keep slipping in bait. One good example was the chemtrail coverage a year or so ago about “the lines in the sky caused by increased air traffic”…I think it was the Guardian. The blaring lack of criticism of Israel, Zionism and their participating in everything nefarious is usually the biggest indicator…cheers

    16. The fact that Snowden, Assange, Manning, Greenwald and the rest of their ilk get so much MSM “airtime” says it all. Your critical thinking cap to be ON constantly, or else you get vacuumed up by the disinformation machine.

    17. Hey man, I really appreciate this article. Especially the subject. Controlled opposition… agents provocateur… false flag… it’s all real, and it’s all serious. I am so glad that someone is finally talking about this. But I want this message to reach more people. I feel that your spiritual context alienates a lot of people. I have seen it alienate people, and it almost alienates me. People who aren’t already attuned to alternative spirituality, or are completely against spirituality altogether, are going to interpret this entirely the wrong way. Some will think of it as propaganda. Some will get wearisome with the secondary message, and ignore the important objective information. I hope you will produce some articles that are completely scientific and informative. Some evidence that people who aren’t already “awakened” can sink their teeth into. We’re not trying to circlejerk with the people who already know all this stuff. We’re trying to expand the movement so that the message reaches people who are still plugged into the matrix. To plug them out, you’re gonna have to appeal to more than just the inherent spirituality of some. You’re gonna have to PROVE to them that this is real. Show them WHY you think this. And prove to them that you’re not just trying to get hits on your website.

      Good read, and good luck,

      • You’re a little too concerned about reactions, although I know what you’re saying. There are plenty more articles here with more of that type of info, both here and throughout alternative media. I emphasize the spiritual because that’s where the solution lies, a full conscious perspective, otherwise we’re just reinforcing the old. What we may consider “facts” and “proof” don’t necessary get seen as such by others, no matter how much evidence is produced. 9/11 is the perfect example. We’re dealing with a form of mass hypnosis. Very strange animal.
        You have some good ideas, how about doing some writing and blogging yourself? Put the info together as you see fit and would be effective. This wake up is for each of us to activate into. Cheers
