“I Don’t Know Why Liars Lie…

… But They Do!”

“Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice; shame on me.” If I continue to be fooled, the blame lies with me.

In the early stages of my awakening to the world and the true nature of reality, I found myself engaged in intriguing conversations with friends. We would discuss unconventional perspectives, such as the possibility of a flat Earth or the potential deceptions of NASA. The recurring question that always echoed back to me was, “But Franklin, why are they lying?

Initially, I would attempt to rationalize these deceptions. I would argue, “They’re lying because they’re trying to suppress us,” or, “They’re lying because they don’t want us to uncover the hidden nature of reality.” While these explanations seemed plausible, the stark truth is I don’t know why they lie.

I don’t know why they deceive us about the nature of reality, the model of the world, or the origins of viruses. These are mysteries that remain unsolved. However, I’ve found solace in accepting that I don’t know why they lie. The crucial point here is not the reason behind the lie, but the existence of the lie itself.

In today’s society, we often find ourselves aware of the lies yet uncertain of the reasons behind them. It becomes easier to accept the lie as truth rather than confront the deception. In this article, we will delve deeper into this phenomenon of recognizing lies without understanding their purpose.

The key takeaway here is this: if there’s a lie being told to us, we don’t need to know the truth right away. We might not even need to know why they’re lying. But the fact of the matter is, if someone’s lying to us, we should be aware and stop believing the lie.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice; shame on me.” If I continue to be fooled, the blame lies with me.

It’s time we stop justifying the lies and start seeking the truth.

The phrase, “I don’t know why liars lie,” began to resonate with me profoundly after watching an interview with comedian Katt Williams on YouTube1. The interview, conducted by former football player Shannon Sharp, had been recommended to me by numerous people, and for a good reason. It went viral, amassing around 40 million views in just nine days.

For those unfamiliar with Katt Williams, he could be likened to a modern-day George Carlin – a comedian who speaks the truth, albeit a shorter, blacker version. After watching the interview, I was impressed by how Williams exposed the inner workings of the entertainment industry to many who were oblivious to its true nature. The key takeaway from his podcast was simple yet profound: “Liars lie. We don’t know why they lie, but we have to know that it’s a lie.”

In the past, other celebrities, such as Cedric the Entertainer and Steve Harvey, have appeared on Club Shay Shay. As Williams watched these entertainers on the show, he noticed them spewing lies, particularly against those who couldn’t defend themselves, like the late Bernie Mac and lesser-known comedians like Mark Curry, whose show Steve Harvey copied. This prompted Williams to defend the truth because one cannot let liars continue to push false narratives.

Upon reflecting on Williams’ words, I realized the importance of recognizing a lie. I don’t need to know why they’re lying, but as long as I know they’re lying, I can stop focusing on their words and start discerning the actual situation.

Today, I want to focus on two examples that illustrate this point: the Super Bowl and NASA. These case studies will demonstrate how liars are lying, why we need to be aware of this, and why we must ensure we’re not falling for the lies being told to us. The journey to uncover the truth continues, and the first step is to stop believing the lie.


The inspiration for this article came from a piece I read on

Substack, titled “Superb Owl, a ‘Roasted Baby’ and ’22 Shot’ in Kansas City.2” I had written a Substack on the Super Bowl, focusing on the spiritual and occult significance of the event. However, ET’s World Occult Substack delved deeper, revealing other events surrounding the Super Bowl that had gone unnoticed.

One story that particularly struck me involved a mother and a baby. It reminded me that there are countless ways to perceive the world. To really comprehend this conversation, we first need an accurate understanding of how the world operates. The saying, “truth is stranger than fiction,” is particularly relevant here. Often, we find truth embedded in fiction.

Parables, for instance, are vehicles of truth. Stories, too, convey truths, suggesting that fiction is rich with truth. This concept was reinforced for me when I watched the show “Mad Men” about eight years ago. The show, set in the 60s, follows the rise of early marketers. One memorable scene involved marketers paying two individuals to fight over some chicken in a supermarket. This staged fight became a news story, leading to an increase in chicken sales.

While “Mad Men” is a work of fiction, it provides insights into our reality. In my articles about corporations, I’ve mentioned Edward Bernays, a PR genius who shaped our world. Bernays is the reason why women started smoking; he staged performances that portrayed smoking in a positive light. He staged protests that started wars and ended wars. He moved masses of the population with the flick of a finger due to propaganda. Public relations and propaganda are real, and they shape our world. Fun fact: Bernays nephew is the founder of Netflix. Let that sink in for a second.

To note, propaganda is also legal. The government can lie to you under the guise of propaganda, which is protected. If the government wants to use fake noises, like wolf sounds3, as they did in Canada, it’s possible. We need to comprehend this facet of reality.

Many people believe that the government would never lie, that the news would never deceive, that false flags would never occur and that conspiracy theories could never be real. This naive approach to viewing the world and reality is flawed.

I discuss this in my articles titled “They Would Never” and in another where I reach out to

on conspiracy theories. When we truly understand the world and have a glimpse of how propaganda moves the world, we realize that this is a fundamental facet of life. This understanding gives us a better grasp of the reality of the world.

Without any insight into how propaganda works, we will never be able to see the lie that’s right in front of us.

As we begin to understand how the world works, as we start to comprehend the propaganda aspect of reality, and as we start to see the illusions for what they are, we can start to discern specific elements. For instance, there’s a ritualistic element to stories and an occultic aspect to this.

To be fair, the general population does not delve into these topics because we have been deterred from them. I discuss this in my article “Esoteric Philosophy.” We avoid these subjects because we have been told they are dark and negative. However, if you muster the courage to explore these matters, you will start to see the world in a brand-new light.

In my book, I guide readers through the process of identifying the illusions set before us and how we can start to dismantle them. I also discuss this in my Substack, especially in my paid content, known as “Esoteric Wisdom.” Not only do I do this, but other individuals do as well. This article is being written because of what ET mentioned in their article. Knowing how propaganda works and reading ET’s article, you can start to see the hidden message.

With that background, we have arrived at what I wanted to discuss in this article. Kansas City won the Super Bowl. However, what was also happening in Kansas City was a story about a mother who accidentally put her baby in the oven. Any parent knows that this is unrealistic. But because the news reported it, are we just supposed to believe that?

I’ve discussed this in my article on why we shouldn’t watch the news. The news propagates false information, gives us a false understanding of reality, and puts us in a heightened state of anxiety. We should not watch the news unless we want to receive false information and the negative energies being broadcasted.

Staying on topic, the news reported that a baby was burned dead. If you look at the symbology of a baby being burned, as ET did, there’s an image that’s being invoked with this story, and there’s a reaction within the individuals who are receiving that story.

Again, we don’t know why liars lie. But when something’s odd, we need to act on the principle that it’s odd and acknowledge that it’s odd. If we don’t, we will continue to believe the story. As I stated in my article, do I Believe in God, “believe” is the state of being lied to. If we simply believe these narratives because we’re told them, we are consistently turning off our intuition, our instinct, that silent, peaceful voice in our heads. And that is a problem.

Again, we don’t know why liars lie. But if we’re able to see there’s a lie, if we’re able to see there’s an occultic aspect of things, then we need to start waking up. We may not exactly know the occult meanings. Again, we’re not in these institutions. However, there is something going on here.

By paying attention to that still, small voice, this is how we develop the skill of Gnosis. The skill of Gnosis applies in many different ways. From the Christian perspective, it’s the Holy Spirit, where you just know, intuition, you just know something’s off here. So if we know something’s off — again, we’re not in these occult ceremonies at the Bohemian Grove — and if we can recognize the signs and the games being played, we’re already better because we can guard ourselves against this.

If you don’t think this is real, you may be living in fairyland.


A prime example of recognizing the signs of propaganda and occult rituals was the pandemic. With my background in the health industry and the ability to scrutinize studies, I could see how things could be propagandized. In the 2000s, Marcia Angell, the editor of the highly recognized medical journal NEJM, stated that she could not validate the vast majority of published studies because many were not clinically or statistically sound. This fact exemplifies how science and medicine can be propagandized. From her, we read the following4:

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”

“No one knows the total amount provided by drug companies to physicians, but I estimate from the annual reports of the top 9 U.S.-based drug companies that it comes to tens of billions of dollars a year in North America alone. By such means, the pharmaceutical industry has gained enormous control over how doctors evaluate and use its own products. Its extensive ties to physicians, particularly senior faculty at prestigious medical schools, affect the results of research, the way medicine is practiced, and even the definition of what constitutes a disease.

If you haven’t already, I recommend my work on Viruses and Lies within the Truth Community. 

Before I was removed from Medium, I was an ardent supporter of Dr. John Ioannidis from Stanford. When the pandemic hit, he was one of the loudest voices, surprisingly absent now, who spoke out against the pandemic measures because they did not make any scientific sense.

When you see and hear things like this during the beginning of the pandemic, you realize, “Okay, there is propaganda at play here, so whatever lies I am being told, whatever narratives I’m being told, I must be mindful of the propaganda.” One of the biggest indicators of propaganda and rituals during the pandemic was the masks, as I’ve written about in my article “Why I Don’t Wear Masks.”

Why I don’t wear a mask

Why I don’t wear a mask

I originally wrote and posted this article on June 20th, 2020, during the midst of the pandemic. This and other articles eventually got me kicked off Medium for “counterperspectives and unpopular opinions.” I’m reposting it here on Substack (especially as we’re hearing “waves” on the topic recirculating). Enjoy!

Prior to the pandemic, all the clinical studies and literature on mask-wearing were that masks should be worn by individuals who were sick. No one wore a mask to protect themselves. Individuals who were severely ill (i.e., in a hospital setting) were wearing masks. In fact, there were studies on the efficacy and the fear that wearing a mask symbolizes. There were scientific studies on this, and I talk about this in that article. However, once the pandemic happened, masks had to be worn. When you realize the occult symbology of this, you realize, okay, there’s an initiation here at play.

Within the pandemic, you had the visible sign of mask-wearing and the practice of isolation. These were occultic rituals and occultic practices, and whether you knew them or not, you were partaking in them.

The pandemic is an excellent example of propaganda and occult and esoteric rituals being influenced on the population. And even though the population unknowingly knows this, they partake in these rituals instead of questioning why. And this brings us to the point of this article.

We don’t know why liars lie. However, we can either accept the narrative that’s being told to us, which is blatantly a lie, or realize that it’s a lie and pay attention to that inner voice that’s saying, “Huh, I don’t know what the fudge is going on, but I do know that something’s off.”

Knowledge, intuition, wisdom, and discernment are the tools and skills we will need in this brave new world we find ourselves in. Even look at the books, “Brave New World” and “1984.” Aldous Huxley talks about the occult being used to influence the masses, and we find ourselves there today.

And so we must begin to understand this is the nature of the world we live in. If we are going to survive and thrive, we must develop our skills of intuition, knowledge, and discernment to be able to survive in this reality of illusions.

This Article Is Good!

This article was primarily inspired by the events in Kansas City, the Chiefs, the energy of the event, the news story, the propaganda, and the ritual. However, I was recently informed that NASA landed on the moon.

If you’re familiar with my work, you’ll realize that the narrative of space, as we’ve been told, is nothing but a propagandized narrative to tell the public, “Hey, listen, we’re going to the moon, we’re going to space, we’re launching satellites.” However, the reality is that we’re funding military budgets, black budget operations, and probably running propaganda on the entire nation as we speak.

From SpaceX to many more, I equate this concept of traveling outside of Earth to evolution.

For those who don’t know, evolution is the number one case study of how you should not believe in something. I discuss this in my article “Lies That the Truth Community Does Not Discuss.” Within evolution, Nobel nominee George Wald states, “Listen, evolution is not real. The truth is there is an intelligent being who created everything. However, I don’t want to believe that, so I will believe in this false narrative that I propagate,” which is evolution.

We must realize that a New World Order has been pushed for the last 800 years, starting in the 1400s or 1500s, with the man John Dee. When you understand this philosophy, you start to realize that “Oh my goodness, there is something here. They are going to propagate something that they know is not true.” It’s up to us to make the decision: are we going to fall for the propagation or not? Again, we don’t know why they lie, but it is a lie.

And by understanding it is a lie, that is all we need to know. Once we realize it is a lie, we can stop giving our attention to it.

This attention is key, as I discussed in my podcast, “The Cost of Paying Attention.” Attention is a currency, or rather, the currency of consciousness. In this world, only two things exist: consciousness and energy. If we direct our attention, the currency of consciousness, towards lies and fallacies, that’s an improper use of our attention.

We need to start directing our attention towards ideas, thoughts, and themes that benefit our world and our fellow humans. Meditating, hanging out with a friend, or better yet, reading Unorthodoxy is a better use than being zoned out and giving your consciousness to something else.

Author’s Note: I just realized this NASA landing was on 2-22. Again, as I’ve stated in the other article on the Super Bowl and how wars happen, there’s a numerology, astrologically occultic thing to these dates. And once we’re aware, we can see this for ourselves.

To conclude, I don’t know why these individuals do these things, but I know they’re doing it. So, I’m going to make sure I don’t fall for the distractions, and instead, I’ll focus my time, my efforts, and my actions on what I want to do. I won’t give them my reaction because that’s what they want. They want my action. They want the energy in my reaction.

As the Netflix propagandized show states, “Stranger Things” are going on here, and there’s a whole spiritual reality out here that is slowly interfering with our physical and material reality. I would recommend everyone to listen to my podcast titled “Why Gnosticism is the Christianity That’s Needed Today” because we’re slowly being warned of an alien invasion. But I’m realizing that as we throw terms around like aliens, we’re also referring to terms such as demons, archons, and spiritual entities, so something is bound to happen.

Why Gnosticism is The Christianity That’s Needed Today

In this episode of Spiritual Sundays, we’ll touch on a topic I’ve wanted to discuss for some time now. The discussion is going to be on the spirituality known as Gnosticism. The conversation will cover these main points: My previous Christian walk and how, as Christians, we need to come to terms with some of the ugly truths of the religion, such as:

Hey, this is the Age of the Kali Yuga. Our current era is the great book of revelations per se. And guess what? The more we’re aware, the more we can guard ourselves and protect ourselves. The more we can elevate our families, friends, and reality.

Thank you for the time and the attention, the consciousness toward this article. Please let me know your thoughts in the comments. If this moves you, I strongly recommend and propose that you become a paying member of Unorthodoxy. If this really moved you, I suggest you become a founding member to give that currency of value and support work you deem important.

PS: I’m working on an offer for founding members. Something along the line of 30mins monthly 1-1 sessions to talk about whatever topics from a spiritual perspective. Definitely open to ideas and suggestions.
