Ken O’Keefe On Fire And Other Hot Things
Voices In The MindWar
The throngs, the hordes, the crowds and the great unwashed masses occupy points along social and cultural spectra. They are there. They are part of the overall. They are among us. We are among them. From their midst arises an intelligence which is more direct than proper platitudes and the comforts of compliant conformity.
In the “Be Here Now” moment of Baba Ram Dass; in the vernacular slang of the Beat generation’s greatest writers — Kerouac, Ferlinghetti, Cassidy, Ginsberg, Kesey, Burroughs, et al — that intelligence has come to life here and now in the visage of an awakened U.S. Marine. His name is Ken O’Keefe.
Mr. O’Keefe is quite outspoken. He lets his voice range into zones from which I, a much older Marine, personally shy away, but he speaks from an awareness level with which I am quite familiar.
He is aware of: Central banking at national and global levels; military-industrial complex mischief; Madison Avenue and Hollywood programming and conditioning; Feducation; authoritarian deviance from Constitutional constraints on how government shall administer itself upon the people; secret societies with superiority complexes and agendas; the Rhodes Round Table groups; the CFR and Trilateral Commission’s Technocracy; the entire hierarchy of organized insanity empowered on the backs of the American tax paying “citizen” – all that and more from the earthen bowels of hidden, lost, or forgotten static history reveal patterns in the tracks of mankind down Time’s path, and Ken O’Keefe sees it all. Well, allow me to qualify that just a tad, for no one “sees it all”. I’ll just say that Ken sees damn-well enough of it to hold my respect. His voice is his, and mine, mine. But we both see the potential of sin which accompanies at conception and is undeniably inherent in the very idea of government.
I do not know this, but surmise with poetic license, that Ken as a Marine home from the Hill, as a warrior home from the Gulf War, Ken O’Keefe the man must have had, even as I myself had after my time at war, just cause to re-examine everything he had been taught, and to learn to see clearly through the woven webs of illusion which activate what Bernays dubbed “The group mind”. (1)
In his reaction to discovering the hidden, underlying purpose of perpetual war, he would have begun to see through the “consensus consciousness” the common mind-set, the culture of inter-relating human beings teeming and teaming in the Cities of Man and in the Power-Centers of Man. As we now may see, a growing and glowing passion accompanied his new revelations as the old beliefs were swept away and replaced by awareness and clear vision. Life-controlling deceptions implanted into the group mind by self-appointed “world leaders” were unveiled and crumbled before his mind’s eye, his inner eye of understanding, where wisdom grows.
Ken now speaks of the smoke and mirrors. He urges all people everywhere to awaken and to see for themselves that their trust in government is the very empowerment government requires to oppress them and keep the world in turmoil. The world as Ken and I both see it is a labyrinth of amazement inter-twined, inter-woven, interpreted, and inserted early after birth into one’s personal unalienable-rights-bearing mind.
It comes in through family influence, language, school, religion or lack of religion, government proclamation and government’s promise of force to quell any non-compliance for the will, wish, and way of the group mind. It comes unconsciously and proves the wisdom in the Poet’s words —
The child is father of the man.”
The herd mentality is “go along to get along“, as we all know. The Individualist mentality questions everything, including custom, belief, and any external authority presenting itself to oneself. Ken O’Keefe strikes me as being an Individualist.
Ken and I both understand the deceptions carried secretly by some government departments which employ “false-flag terror events” and other clandestine leverages to shape, form and forge public opinion. We (and “they”) also know that public opinion begins with public perception. We also know that a sense of “trust” is abused when government withholds its black operations in secrecy. Indeed, the central core of the Liberty movement in general knows that.
Ken O’Keefe is right about war, and he’s right about what President Andrew Jackson called “The Money Power”, especially in its modern-day context as the Federal Reserve System, Inc. He is right about a lot of things, and his anger is righteous, though it waxes somewhat direct and blunt when he is ranting. So I must warn my readers – Sometimes Ken O’Keefe talks like a Marine. In public. So if you go looking for him on the Internet, be aware that some of his videos are laced with a colorful Marine-like vulgarity.
I have learned that Ken O’Keefe is on his last American tour. I’d like to give readers a heads-up in hopes some will be able to attend. But first, let’s look at Ken’s website to view a video which is rather powerful. Ken’s site is here — (language warning!)
From that site I’ve borrowed this shockingly vivid video:

PUBLIC RANT AGAINST THE SURVEILLANCE STATE, FEATURING KEN O’KEEFE
Ken O’Keefe will lead a PUBLIC RANT AGAINT THE SURVEILLANCE STATE on Memorial Union Terrace in Madison, Wisconsin on Sunday, April 3rd, 2 to 3 pm. Dr. Kevin Barrett, Dr. James Fetzer, and other notorious public ranters will participate. Passersby, sheeple, and other innocent bystanders should exercise extreme caution in the vicinity of this dangerous example of free expression. (If it rains, the ranters will move indoors to the Rathskeller.)
This event is inspired by Ken O’Keefe’s epic rant: TSA Denied Flight to Anarcapulco for Refusing Body Scanner at LAX https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqPofDjY0og
Ken O’Keefe is a former US Marine, Gulf War veteran, organizer of the human shield action to Iraq (2003), survivor of the Israeli attack on the MV Mavi Marmara, Irish-Palestinian citizen, and founder of World Citizen Solutions: “The tyrants have no power but that which we have unwittingly relinquished to them…in order to create a better world, we simply need to take our power back.”
At 3 pm, after the public rant, a private KEN O’KEEFE CELEBRATION will be held in the Memorial Union, to which “friends of Kevin Barrett” are invited. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and check www.union.wisc.edu/titu for the room number. Delicious gourmet-quality homemade cake will be served.
