You don't really need those glasses from "They Live" to see who the "Aliens" are. All you have to do to realize that both Obama and McCain are "Aliens" is to consider the following facts:
(1) 80% of Americans want greatly reduced immigration
(2) Both Obama and McCain have not so subtlety told the Hispanic ethno-centric PACs that they will both grant Amnesty to 12-30 million Illegal Aliens as soon as they get into office.
(3) Only 9% of American citizens believe Congress is doing an adequate job -- a historic low.
(4) There is absolutely no doubt that our government has been hi-jacked by a Global Corporate Elite whose agenda is to destroy all national sovereign states in favor of a One World Global Corpocracy. You see this in NAFTA, the NAU, the EU and the FTAA.
You will see, in the following description of "They Live," that this 1988 film almost perfectly portrays what is going on in this country today. Soon I will be setting up a petition (both online and paper) to get at the Achilles Heel of this fraudulent election: A demand for a 20 Year Moratorium on ALL Immigration into the US.
They Live is a 1988 film directed by John Carpenter, who also wrote the screenplay under the pseudonym “Frank Armitage”. The movie is based on Ray Nelson's 1963 short story Eight O'clock in the Morning.
Part science fiction thriller and part black comedy, the film echoed contemporary fears of a declining economy, within a culture of greed and conspicuous consumption common among Americans in the 1980s. In They Live, the ruling class within the moneyed elite are in fact aliens managing human social affairs through the use of subliminal media advertising and the control of economic opportunity.
Here is a synopsis of the plot to help aid with your discussions. You can either get the file from the video store or connect your router connected laptop to a television for the purpose of group viewing.
Nada (Roddy Piper) is a homeless laborer who finds work on a Los Angeles construction site. One of the workers, Frank Armitage (Keith David), takes him to spend the night at a local shantytown. While being shown around, he notices odd behavior at a small church across the street. Investigating the next day, he discovers that the soup kitchen they are operating is a sham. The choir practice is a recording, scientific apparatus and stacks of cardboard boxes are scattered around the rear areas of the building, and he accidentally stumbles on several more boxes hidden in a secret compartment in a wall.
That night, the police surround the church, forcing the inhabitants to flee. The police then turn on the shantytown, destroying it with bulldozers and beating the blind minister of the church. Nada returns to the site the next day and investigates the church again, which has been emptied. He takes one of the boxes from the secret compartment and opens it in an alleyway, finding it full of sunglasses. He keeps one pair and leaves the rest in a garbage can.
When Nada later dons the glasses for the first time, the world appears in shades of grey, with significant differences. He notices that a billboard now simply displays the word "Obey"; without them it displays the ad that Control Data is "creating a transparent computing environment". Another billboard (normally displaying "Come to the Caribbean" written above a lovely woman lying on a beach) now displays the text "Marry and Reproduce". He also sees that paper money bears the words "This is your God". All printed matter around him contains subliminal advertising.
At the meeting, they learn that the aliens' primary method of control is a signal being sent out on television, which is why the general public cannot see the aliens for what they are. An unknown but brilliant inventor creates a lenses. It is called the Hoffman lens named after Albert Hoffman, the inventor of LSD (this is not explained in the movie). The glasses show the word as it really is.
[Commentary (Bruce W. Cain): My guess at the explanation for the "Hoffman Lens" is due to the deprogramming aspects of LSD. Anyone that has ever "tripped" understands that it forever changes the way you look at the world. Entheogenic drugs, such as LSD, have been used by the mystic traditions for at least 10,000 years. It was used by Socrates, Pythagoras, and most of the other philosophers of the humanities, whose ideas are prominently embedded in the US Constitution. These philosophers were all participants in the Eleusinian Mysteries: a annual ritual that archeologists now believe included the use of a LSD-like substances that served as the sacrament. The following 10-minute video elaborates on the origins of the Eleusinian Mysteries:
Another mystic tradition, Zen Buddhism, also shed some light on this as the term "Zen" transliterates into "as it is."
I would also recommend that you watch some of the related videos on the "mysteries" on YouTube. This, by the way, is exactly why we need to assure "net neutrality" which is the 10th plank in the "New Agenda for America." For the internet has truly become the repository for all knowledge: certainly eclipsing the Libraries of Alexandria. And it is worth noting that the Libraries of Alexandria were burned to the ground in order to destroy the access to this complete repository of human knowledge. Knowledge is power. And the elites, from which ever age, have always been afraid of the people having too much knowledge, because it is a threat to their hegemony.]
