Personal message from Whitewraithe – This really is the end.

Dear visitors and readers,

Unfortunately, with sad and profound trepidation I am informing everyone that my 10 year collaboration and friendship with Northerntruthseeker seems to be at an end.

It’s been a wonderful experience knowing this intelligent and passionate man from afar as we’ve never met since he lives in Canada.  However, over the past 18-months my life has taken a turn for the worse with a series of many unfortunate events that I’m still striving to overcome and attempt to move on.  Under these conditions it’s extremely difficult to stay positive when it’s down to life and death.

However, NT lives in a different world, a world where it’s very difficult for him to understand that some people live with terminal problems where life is constantly falling apart.  NT was blessed with superior intellect which provided the long-term position he’s held with a telecommunications company for over 35 years.  He’s ready to retire and once again I am attempting to rebuild my life at nearly 59.

Due to these differences we’ve had to go our separate ways because what brought us together as a team fighting political injustice no longer exists as I am basically out of the game.  I can no longer read and study the horrors of the world because it’s broken my psyche into a million pieces.  I’ve also recently learned that I am a highly sensitive individual and I feel the weight of the world pressing down on me constantly.  Therefore, I’ve had to turn my back on all that I have accomplished in nine years with this blog.   What I have accomplished though will stand on it’s own for the sake of posterity.

Right now, I’m getting ready to return to work and the real world once again and sincerely hope the situation will be a long lasting one until I can no longer work.

I would like to leave you with a video from one of the greatest super arena rock bands of all time – QUEEN.  The song is called Innuendo and here is a link to the lyrics and explanation of the song.  It was recorded toward the end of Freddie Mercury’s tragic short life, who was taken too soon from this world.   I still greatly miss his charisma as an entertainer and a very generous human being.

I will occasionaly look at comments and respond.

Signing off (for now.)

Real News in on the 2016 election and it’s not what you were told…..

WW~Notes:  This was the ugliest most hateful election in history I’ve seen.  That’s why I’ve posted nothing on PW about it.   Now, we have the real results and of course, Donald Trump is not perfect and he has to deal with Israel like it or not.  But after 20 years of the crime and corruption of the Clinton and Bush administrations, Trump is a breath of fresh air.  This news came in November 14th, 2016 dispelling the lies that Trump did not get the popular vote.

donald_trump_hillary_clinton_final_vote_count_2016Final Vote Count 2016: Donald Trump’s Popular Vote And Electoral College Votes Win Election Over Hillary Clinton Claims Viral Twitter Rumor [Debunked]

The final vote count for 2016 has many scrutinizing Donald Trump’s popular vote since Hillary Clinton’s popular vote is currently highest in the 2016 recount. While some Americans have all but placed President Trump in the White House, others believe there is still a chance that Hillary’s electoral college votes could rise enough to make a difference. If so, could she win and become the first woman president of America?

The protests taking place on the streets of America are ample proof about the citizenry’s lack of conviction in the election results, but the final vote count isn’t in yet. The Democrats behind organized protests believe there is still a chance, albeit slim, that Hillary could race ahead and become the commander-in-chief of America if enough faithless electors were to jump off the Trump train.

Did Donald Trump Win The Popular Vote?

In response, Trump supporters have started a viral claim that Trump’s popular vote actually exceeds Hillary’s popular vote count.

The above chart has been making furious rounds of the internet and has been cited as a proof about Trump’s lead over Hillary. Moreover, there are multiple justifications that attempt to explain one of the most surprising results in America’s general elections. Experts seem to claim that Trump may not have flipped many Democrats to gain the lead.

Instead, Hillary failed to turn out liberal voters in as large numbers as they had done when the outgoing president Barack Obama had stood for reelection. This narrative may act as a soothing balm for the Democrats and makes Secretary Clinton responsible for her own loss.


While the numbers that came out on the great election night were enough for Trump to win the presidency based upon the electoral college votes, they are, by no means, complete. According to Mediaite, Twitter and several conservative media websites are spreading the idea that Trump’s popular vote is currently winning the final vote count. Also, Trump’s popular vote win has been psychologically cemented in the minds of Americans by the dominant search engine provider, since the current top search result for “final vote count” is for a website which claims Trump is suddenly up by around 700,000 votes.

Apparently, the website bases this entire claim on an erroneous tweet.

Needless to say, the information isn’t credible. However, owing to the domino effect of social media reporting, this false tweet about Donald Trump’s popular vote numbers has been popularly crowned as fact in some conservative circles. Unfortunately, they do have good reason to be skeptical of the 2016 vote recount since a CNN error started the idea that Trump won the popular vote.

Final election 2016 numbers

Popular Vote: TRUMP – 62,972,226

                                     Clinton – 62,277,750

Electoral College: TRUMP – 309, CLINTON -232

As you can see, CNN’s website once clearly listed Trump as the “projected winner,” but CNN confirmed the projection for Trump winning was in error.

What Is The Final Popular Vote Count For 2016?

Now, what is the final vote count of 2016 you may ask? David Wasserman of Cook Political Report has been keeping an online spreadsheet with a running tally of the 2016 recount. [Update] As of 10:00 AM EST on November 17, 2016, Clinton is at 62,825,754 votes, with Trump at 61,486,735 votes, giving Hillary a lead of 1,339,019 votes. As a comparison, the AP was reporting these popular vote totals at the time of this article’s original publishing on November 14th.

Donald Trump 60,375,961 (47.28%)

Hillary Clinton 61,047,207 (47.79%)

That’s a difference of 671,246 votes.

Will provisional and absentee ballots change the outcome of the election and be enough to accord Hillary Clinton the presidency? Surprisingly, even millions of votes do not hold the power to snatch the presidency away from Trump. This is because a majority of these votes weren’t cast in swing states. Instead, a huge number of uncounted ballots are on the coasts, in New York, California, and Washington.

Needless to say, these states have always swayed towards Ms. Clinton, and even showed their support to the Democratic candidate openly. Hence, Ms. Clinton should be able to win those votes, probably 2-1, said David Wasserman, an editor at Cook Political Report who is tracking turnout.

“We probably have about 7 million votes left to count. A majority of them are on the coasts, in New York, California, and Washington. She should be able to win those votes, probably 2-1. By mid-December, when the Electoral College officially casts its ballots, Clinton could be ahead by 2 percentage points in the popular vote.”

Why the huge delay? It all comes down to the liberal absentee and mail-in voting laws prevalent in these states. States like California allows residents to submit ballots up to three days late. The only caveat is that these votes must be postmarked on or before Election Day to be counted as valid.

Given the fact that California alone has more than four million votes pending, and Washington has still to slough through 700,000, the final 2016 vote count for the popular vote should still favor of Hillary Clinton. According to the Atlantic, Clinton has actually expanded her lead in the popular vote significantly. Will that change the final electoral college vote for Hillary? That event seems very unlikely since the majority of uncounted votes should be in states Hillary already won, although Democrats are crossing their fingers.

Ted Nugent to Angry Hillary Clinton Supporters: ‘Quit Being P–

Rick Diamond, Getty Images

Ted Nugent has a message for those protesting the victory of President-Elect Donald Trump: “Get over it, and get in the game of life. Quit being pussies. You’re embarrassing yourselves and America.”

Nugent, an early Trump supporter, argued that the outcry over the electoral defeat of Hillary Clinton is symptomatic of a larger issue in the country today. “We’ve got a lot of work to do in America to make it great again,” he wrote on Facebook. “Job #1 is to de-pussify all of the entitled, arrogant, ignorant, spoiled pussies created during the last eight years. That won’t be easy.”

He suggests a change in attitude, beginning with college administrators and the parents of the next generation. “What America needs,” he says, “are tough, hungry, competitive and smart young people to make it great again.”

In the end, life provides a series of steep challenges – and everyone has to be prepared for that, Nugent noted. “These entitled little rose pedals didn’t get their way in the election,” he said. “So they’re now whining, crying, protesting, bitching, squawking, complaining, walking out of school and demanding their sniveling, spoiled pussy voices be heard instead of manning up, putting on their big boy pants and wading into the white-water rapids of life where pussies get swept away and drowned.”

Moreover, Nugent wondered where all of this pent-up rage is coming from in the first place: “Interestingly, I don’t recall any young people on the right-hand side of the political aisle throwing temper tantrums like these crying pussies after Mr. Obama won the White House in 2008 and 2012.”


Greetings from Whitewraithe~

I returned home last Friday from a two week training course for my new career.  It was grueling and tiring, but I feel very positive that this venture will support me for the remainder of my time on this earth hopefully in a peaceful, but frugal existence.  And yes, as long as the government doesn’t decide to dip their greedy fingers in my pie.

Now, I have to build a customer base, make a gazillion phone calls and convince people that what I have to offer is beneficial and necessary in their lives.  I’ll talk a bit more about what I’m actually doing another time.

I haven’t looked at alternative news sites in two weeks and will make an effort to catch up.  Of course, visit for all the latest on just about everything.

Hopefully, I’ll have some articles up in the near future.  But with nearly 2400 articles on my site you shouldn’t be bored, there is always something to read and learn.

And thanks for still dropping by in my absence.


“I’m not mad; I am pissed off!”

After a very long hiatus from writing my own articles the spark has once again emerged.

Today I took the time while waiting on a job offer to listen to several interviews, two from Christopher Jon Bjerknes.  I’m extremely glad that he’s being interviewed so that he can share what I believe to be the truth about what is happening in America and around the world especially in Europe.

The truth is mostly ugly and most unwelcome and the truth of our plight most definitely is disgusting.

The Gentiles mortal enemy, the psychotic, emotionally dysfunctional Jews whether  Ashkenazi or Sephardic have been planning our demise for the past 2500 years according to Bjerknes.  If you are of white European heritage then you’re their number one target.  They want every white person on the planet eradicated either contrived or breeded out by miscegenation meaning interracial coupling to weaken the white genome.  That’s been their primary plan all along because our intelligent brains are their greatest threat.  Quite literally, we are smarter than they are.

So why is the white race allowing itself to be annihilated from the history books?  I can’t even begin to answer that question because even I don’t know.  Bjerknes’ suggestion; have lots of white babies and teach them to be proud of their heritage from an early age and prohibit interracial couplings/marriages if possible.  I suggest you listen carefully to the interview Bjerknes gave to Kyle Hunt at Renegade Broadcasting.  It’s posted right here on Pragmatic Witness.

However, since I’ve returned to watching quite a bit of television I am seeing interracial relationships everywhere on nearly every show I watch.  And it doesn’t matter what you watch whether family shows, adult drama, horror, etc., it’s there.  It is teaching our white children that it’s normal and natural to be with someone outside their race.  Well, it’s not normal or natural – it’s foreign.  Why, because every race including Jews have their own identity and conception of the world around them.  Their rituals for living are quite different from a normal white American.  And you can call me racist – I don’t care.  I have nothing against another race because I am something the Jews are not; compassionate and empathetic.  I don’t want to see anyone get hurt or die but I wouldn’t want a black woman marrying one of my grandsons either.  But the Jews are ramming this myth down every child’s throat that watches shows with this philosophy.   The white race in America is being threatened on every front and I am sick of the brainwashing or the threat of being labeled – racist, especially when every other fucking race on the planet hates whites.

At least this is one area of our lives the Jews cannot control.   They cannot make us marry or couple with another race, yet.

The other races mean nothing to the Jews although you may think they do.  You all are being used to exterminate the white population, then they will come after you because they care nothing for you either.  Unwittingly, you’ve become their patsies and lackeys.  Whatever you’ve been promised; women, wealth, safety will never come because you’ll be on a slab in the morgue.  Don’t think for one minute that you’ll be spared too?

The most effective way to wipe out the white races in America has been through consistent immigration just as the Jews have accomplished in all the white countries in Europe and Great Britain.  Sweden and England especially have been inundated with Muslims from the middle east, and Somalis from Africa and a number of other darker races.  Swedish women are being raped on an unprecedented scale to the point they need body guards to walk their once safe streets.

I say this to every white person living in America, be proud of where you come from since most of us were imported from Europe several hundred years ago.  We have a shared heritage and lineage with our European brothers and sisters.  Embrace that reality knowing we have at least our breeding in common with our distant cousins across the pond.

As for myself, I am part Anglo-Saxon English and Scottish, with a bit of Eastern Cherokee Indian mixed in.   But since I’m descended from the Anglo-Saxons, then I’m also descended from the Vikings which may explain my intense warrior spirit.  Northerntruthseeker has referred to me as “warrior woman” on more than one occasion.  I am extremely proud of my heterogeneous heritage.  It makes me special and like no other because there is no one like me.  White diversity is very unique and we are unlike any other race on the planet.

However, let me interject that doesn’t mean that I condone hatred of anyone regardless of where they derive or what race they are.  We all are human beings and it’s time we start treating each other with generosity and respect.  We all bleed red and we all die when our lives are snatched from another with malice in their heart.  The Jews have nothing but malignant malice in their hearts if they actually have one for all whites and every other race on the planet and it’s time everyone arrives at that reality no matter how unpleasant.

It’s past time to face these monsters and demons and put them down once and for all.

I want to live in peace and prosperity without fear – don’t you?


This Is Why False Flags Have Gone Haywire Under Obama

THE MILLENNIUM REPORT: Reporting the Most Important News in the World Today

“NDAA Legalized Gov-Sponsored False
Flags So Obama Could Manufacture
Consent For Max Gun Control”
– Ex-Intelligence Analyst 


“FALSE FLAGS” are LEGAL PROPAGANDA PRODUCED by the Department of Defense


By Anonymous Patriots

Why would the government support false flag events?

This question would go through our minds every time we would see a new false flag event plastered all over the media.  Like many of you, we would think, “It has to be real, otherwise the government and participants would be engaging in treason.” But the narrative and the evidence never seem to match up.  How odd that at Sandy Hook and at San Bernardino there were so many responders from federal agencies and that other drills were already happening on the same day just a mile away.  Coincidence seemed unlikely for one event.  Totally unlikely for two.

It even seemed that the “official story” that was “fed” to the news agencies was filled with holes on purpose.  When 450 responders showed up in San Bernardino, including FEMA, ATF, Homeland Security, FBI, DoD, and all local agencies, within 14 minutes and had their lawn chairs and coolers set up while most of them walked around aimlessly with no worries in the world, we couldn’t take it anymore.  We had always known that “false flags” usually precede severe military action and we couldn’t really imagine military action within US domestic borders since the military is not empowered to act against its own citizens.

Therefore, we decided to WAKE UP and study the false flag phenomena. Don’t presume to think this is just another conspiracy theory article.  What you will read will chill you to the bone. We know this is a long article, but while you were sleeping much has been done to destroy your country. You need to see the immense work that is being done behind your back to destroy your beloved country. And, most important, when you get to the end of the article, we have a CITIZEN CALL TO ACTION.


We beseech you, our fellow Americans, to read this article and pass it along to others. Unplug your electronic tethers and read this very important article.  If not for you, then the children and loved ones in your life who will live like slaves in this hellish New World Order that is already here.  Our patriotic duty was to do the research; yours is to read and distribute to other patriots.

Like many of you, we believe that 9-11 was a false flag event. We don’t know exactly who, what, why and how, but we know that when overwhelming circumstantial evidence points in the opposite direction of the official story, something is wrong.  So when the Sandy Hook and San Bernardino events unfolded, we became very uneasy as these events seemed to be a new type of false flag.  In both events, the president was demanding that Americans give up their guns and constitutional rights even before the fake pools of blood on the steps of the Sandy Hook school dried.

Actually, the pools of blood on the sidewalk at Sandy Hook were the first indicator of fraud: two anti-coagulated pools of liquid blood without a trail of blood, without any victims ever coming out of the building to “make” the pools, and authorities ignoring them and not even treating them as part of a crime scene.  Every picture we saw or video we listened to was completely fake and looked more like a drill.  Nothing added up.  In San Bernardino there were ten different “black SUV” pictures released that are completely contradictory. An alarm kept going off in our heads saying, “Why are they purposely releasing contrary evidence as though they didn’t care that the evidence made them complicit with a crime, or even treason?”

We started studying the evidence. We were beyond the basic evidence—that crisis actors were used to stage both events and multiple government agencies showed up within minutes.  But one thing that totally took us by surprise is that San Bernardino was the site of the largest Jade Helm 2015 military maneuvers.  We asked ourselves, “Why would so many people, including so many U.S. government agencies, be involved in deceiving Americans?”  It took courage to look beyond the first veil of illusion.

If you have followed Sandy Hook and San Bernardino you realize that no one (except the patsies) are killed.  No one dies; therefore, no crime has been committed.  This knowledge gave us some comfort, but raised many questions concerning false flag events in America.

What is the goal of the recent (since 2012) false flag events?

Who gains from the appearance of insidious criminal events?

What mechanisms are used to silence so many participants, i.e. paid crisis actors, government agencies?

How do these agencies “get away with” using creating lies, distortions, and false flags? Wouldn’t that be called propaganda?

After pondering these questions relentlessly, we lifted another veil of illusion. We asked, “What if these activities to manipulate public opinion were legal?  Could there be a law that protects the president and US agencies (local, state, and federal) from conducting false flag event?  So we changed our focus and began to research false flags as being legal propaganda.  We found the answers in plain sight.  We were beyond disbelief when we discovered that the US Congress has passed laws, post 9-11, that makes state-sponsored propaganda legal.  Take a moment and think about that before reading on.

Our research lead us to discover the tenets of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 which makes it legal to propagate and broadcast propaganda within America.  We are all being treated like enemy combatants whose “perception” must be managed to come in line with presidential “national security” policies.  The Department of Defense may now broadcast propaganda with the approval and authority of the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) both internationally and domestically.  Just Google it folks.  There is actually an agency with this name.

Perception Management

Any presidential policy may be accompanied by broadcasts that use subliminal programming as part of perception management.  These mechanisms that squelch dissent have been used since the Reagan Administration to shape public opinion to support administrative policies.  Wars require domestic support and these “black ops” programs started to use the “psy-ops” tools of the military.  DARPA, the research and development arm of the military, has created many tools to control the enemy through media that shapes public perception, which we will elucidate later in this article.  It is called perception management and has been used legally in advertising since the late seventies in electronic warfare throughout the world to “brain-wash” our enemies and shape their perception and opinion of America.

The only question left was the issue of what the goal of the president (or the real powers behind him—the Council on Foreign Relations) might be, besides the obvious one of having few people who disagree with his policies.  We then studied the United Nations Small Arms Treaty which Obama signed in 2011, but couldn’t get Congress to ratify.  In this treaty we found the goal Obama is driving towards — disarm America, with the help of the United Nations.  But two things have to happen: 1) we have to give up our guns or have them taken from us and 2) the UN has to have a military presence in our country.  Keep in mind that the United Nations cannot have a military presence in our country, unless invited.

Have you already started connecting the dots? Remember seeing all of the images of all that UN military equipment that was distributed throughout America during Jade Helm 2015?  It seemed that besides the San Bernardino exercises, moving UN heavy military equipment throughout America was the only thing that we noticed happening during Jade Helm 2015.  Another veil lifted.  Obama’s job was to go for a gun grab, either by Congressional action or UN treaty.  But patriots started waking up and our elected officials in Congress could not ratify the United Nations Small Arms Treaty.  So Obama and his political minions began to manufacture false flags, hoping that our horror to Sandy Hook and San Bernardino would cause us to lay down our rights and guns.

Keep in mind, that false flag incidents and state-sponsored propaganda could not be considered treasonous acts against Americans as Congress (through the NDAA) had made treason–legal.

Congress Does Not Ratify Gun-Taking Treaty

Congress would not, and has not, ratified the UN Small Arms Treaty, nor would they vote on Second Amendment restrictions.  So false flags were used to create conscious and “unconscious” support of a national gun grab.  Sandy Hook was the most heinous “example” of what “guns do.”  Incredible anti-gun sentiment was created by Sandy Hook and people still reel from it with anger and hatred for “people on drugs” and “gun lovers.”  San Bernardino happened right before the congressional vote on gun control. And even with images of San Bernardino a day before the congressional vote on gun control, Obama lost his attempt for gun restrictions.

Now do you see why he has taken things into his own hands and signed into effect 23 Executive Orders that move his gun control policies send in contradistinction to the fact that Congress rejected such ideas? The motive became quite clear once you read the UN Treaty – to dismantle the Second Amendment and disarm America.  Since Obama couldn’t use the United Nations or Congress to get his way, he just wrote his own laws and pretends like Executive Orders outrank congressional law.Obama is behind the UN timeline of disarmament, since the other nations who signed the treaty have already begun to disarm its citizens.

Controlling the Human Domain

Once we understood the goal and the legalization of propaganda, with its insidious DARPA electronic war devices, the rest fell into place as one Internet search after the next revealed the truth before our eyes.  This is shocking and almost inconceivable.  But it is law (NDAA) and Congress did not stop this law from being passed.

NTS and I knew ISIS/ISIL was a scam but missed this news story big time…


Simon Elliot, aka Al-Baghdadi, son of Jewish parents, Mossad agent.

According to Edward Snowden, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the boss of ISIL (aka ISIS),  is a Jewish actor named Simon Elliot.

According to the Financial Times, the US air strikes in Iraq “have failed to roll back ISIS’s advance and can be seen as a propaganda victory for the group…

“So far US forces have failed to target Isis’s buildings, weapons storage facilities or the leadership based in the desert near Mosul.”

“A couple of 500-pound bombs from F-18s and a couple of drone attacks are not going to stop Isis.

“We had one chance to hit their leadership and their command-and-control structures, and now it’s over…

“If we’re going to say that this is all about securing Erbil, which Isis never intended (to take over), the mission is over and we can go home.” / let me explain

Abdulla Hawez, a Kurdish political commentator, has told the Financial Times:
“Isis is advancing and their attacking abilities haven’t been weakened.”

Wladimir van Wilgenburg, an Erbil-based analyst at the Jamestown Foundation, has told the Financial Times:

“I’ve seen on social media that ISIS seem to not really mind that America is involved.
“Propaganda-wise, the American involvement is not so bad at all for them.”
