Critical Thinking

I was still a “sweet young thang” of 24 years, still listening to parents, the church, the government, the schools, everyone but myself, when I had a small but pivotal experience. I had an older friend, a woman that I was slightly afraid of because she tended to chew people up and spit them out on a regular basis. At least that was how I thought of her back then. Nevertheless, I liked her because she always seemed so clear about what she thought and wanted.

One day I read an article in the newspaper. It was brief and had to do with international relationships. I can’t remember now exactly what it said, but at the time, I was upset or unsettled and thought it was important for my friend to know about as well, so I took it to her and insisted she read it. When she did, I began spouting my opinions and attitudes about the article, only to be cut off at the knees when she handed it back to me and fired off a barrage of questions, “What do you know about the guy who wrote this? What is his agenda? Why does he use those particular words? How is he trying to hook you? Who benefits from this deal? Look at the bias of the newspaper itself! What does the article imply? What is it trying to get you to believe…to think…to feel? What is the history of international relationships between these countries? Where does this fit in the bigger picture of life and government and other countries today?”

I stood there in shock. Her questions implied that I did not know nearly enough to have an opinion of anything! They also implied that I had not done my homework. I was dismayed that I would have to do so much more work and pay attention to so many more boring details instead of allowing myself to get all worked up over a few juicy tidbits put out there solely to get me in a froth.

I only remember saying to her, “Where did you learn to think like that???” Suddenly, I wanted to see why things happened and know the understand the underbelly of life as it flowed through me and others.

What she presented that day was a small example of critical thinking. It is something we need right now in the U.S. If we don’t know HOW we have arrived at our present state of affairs…if we don’t know the hidden side of why people do what they do…if we aren’t looking outside the framework presented in a solitary news story… if we aren’t assembling a bigger picture of what is going on than the picture presented by the “authorities”… then we have not learned to think for ourselves or reached the point of critical thinking and will make serious mistakes in our choices for the future.

The Emperor Has No Clothes?

I happened to read a statement today that said student loans were the top asset of the U.S.Government after land and people. If there was ever a time when the the old saying about the emperor having no clothes could be said, this might be that time! Our government has no real assets (clothes)!!

Trust me, I know that bookkeeping systems classify money owed to you as money that should eventually come in on the positive side of the ledger. But the keywords here are “should” and “eventually.” First, who in their right mind would structure their budget and base their hopes for a secure future on such massive debt? Second, what system would base their future on massive debts owed to them by people who cannot pay because that same system has not made a single decision to benefit those people in years???

Trump the New Wife

Let’s imagine for a moment that you got a divorce and later met someone new that you fell in love with. Let’s say that this new love in your life already had children from a first marriage and that they ranged in age from 10 to 18 years of age. Let’s also say that you are enthusiastically focused on your new love and decide to get married. You look forward to spending time with a loving partner and assume that life will be better for both of you. However, after the marriage, you discover that the children are hostile. They are telling lies and awful stories to the ex-wife, their teachers, their friends,  the therapist, and the courts. These stories are not only untrue, they are based on childish points of view, immature perspectives, and old unresolved angers. How would you feel? What would you say? Donald Trump is in exactly this same situation.

The 2016 election was NOT about Trump, it was about we the people of the U.S. choosing to face and end the evils of financial corruption, child sacrifice, and sex trafficking. Mainstream news has not wanted to touch these topics except to say they are fake news. Why? I would think they’d be interested in bringing such charges to the surface, investigating, airing things out and getting to the bottom of such problems so we can heal and move forward peaceably. Instead mainstream media are going out of their way to destroy Trump.

The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, Daily Kos, Moveon.org (both Daily Kos and Moveon are supported by George Soros) and others are pouring out a steady stream of headlines and information that is SO negative and SO biased it’s likely to trigger a backlash and create exactly the opposite effect they are trying to bring about. Of the headlines that arrive in my inbox every day from U.S. mainstream media, a large percentage are blatant attacks on our government. Here is a small sampling from the past few days:

Trump Revealed Highly Classified Intelligence to Russia, in Break With Ally, Officials Say – (Did he really? If our president can’t discuss classified information with other leaders and officials, then who can? What about Hilary Clinton’s sale of classified information to other countries? Who is the classified information for if not our elected officials? What is the point of collecting it if he can’t use it when necessary? I know it can be seen as naïve of me, but if transparency and honesty were valued, we wouldn’t be engaged in sneaky, “classified” operations in the first place!)

Trump’s Fraudulent Voter-Fraud Commission  (Who says it’s fraudulent? Is it any more fraudulent than the shenanigans of the Democratic National Committee and the way they stole the nomination from Bernie Sanders?)

A Strong Case Against a Pesticide Does Not Faze E.P.A. Under Trump (Uh-huh…like Obama, and Bush, and Clinton were any different?)

When the World Is Led by a Child (This article is so vicious, so below-the-belt insulting that it’s hard to comprehend why anyone would print it in the first place. The article concludes with a statement that says Trump is a danger to the country…and completely overlooks the fact that this kind of writing is more of a danger to our country than 20 Trumps would ever be.)

How Trump Hurts the Spying Business (This article decries the tarnishing of America’s image as the ‘last, best hope of the world’ while proceeding to tear apart Trump and the current government…as if America had only been tarnished in the last 100 days. Anyone paying attention is aware that the real tarnishing started 16 years ago with the destruction of the Trade Center buildings by our own government.)

Trump White House is a Horror Movie with Hordes of Leakers and One Scary Clown (This story is so poorly written and so obviously distorted that it doesn’t deserve any comment at all. I was reminded that many newspapers and magazines know that approximately 70% of the people read only the headlines, so they try to get their digs in by juicing up the headlines in terrible ways.)

Students at Notre Dame Plan to Take Back Their Graduation from its Horrible Speaker – Mike Pence  (The author here tries to say that Republican speakers interfere with the graduates’ right to celebrate their academic success. She concludes by saying it would be nice if Pence ended up speaking to an empty room because everyone walked out. What does this teach the younger generation about how to treat people???)

Anderson Cooper to Trump Lackey Jeffrey Lord: If Trump Took a Dump on His Desk You’d Defend It (Disgusting! This is so low-class it’s pathetic! I wanted to cry at the ugliness of how we are talking about one another!!)

All of these are deeply negative, insulting to our government, and serve only to spread worry, fear, negativity, anger, distrust, poor attitudes, and severe biases designed to distort people’s perceptions and bring out the worst in us.

Something Very Interesting to Watch

While teaching Intuition classes last week the subject of the future came up and I was reminded of a lecture I watched last year about Paul Amadeus Dienach. Dienach lived in the early 1900s and experienced a 365-day spell of narcolepsy during which he went into the future to the year 3906. While there, he was schooled about the history of where civilization had been and what had happened between the early 1900s and the 3900s. It is an amazing story with some VERY interesting information! The lecture is called Memories From the Future: The Valley of the Roses and is 2 hours long. It was a lecture given at the A.R.E. in Virginia around 2013. There’s a book titled Chronicles From the Future available on Amazon that contains the entire story. If you haven’t already seen it, you might enjoy watching it on a Sunday afternoon orevening. Here is the link:

So Sorry, Mr. Soros

So sorry, Mr. Soros and other Globalists, but your attempts to set up Globalism have made us all into global citizens with global perception! We see and hear 360°; we get the big picture. Did you think we were all going to maintain 1950-style ideas and worldviews? Those worldviews were infantile. Perhaps if you had gone about things differently, we might have been able to work together. Perhaps the problem is that major portions of your plan were launched during and after the big World Wars when you worked hard to sell the idea of Nationalism in order to get people to join the army or navy and keep fighting. This probably made it seem that turning the ship of Nationalism would be impossible and therefore you would have to be sneaky with your new program to collapse it and turn us all into New World Order people. If you hadn’t been so busy mopping up after the war back then, you might have been able to think clearly. You might have been able to enlist our support for a new plan. After all, why wouldn’t we want to come together? Why wouldn’t we want to live in peace? Why wouldn’t we love to be in communication with our brothers and sisters around the globe? Why wouldn’t we want to resolve world problems together and help create an ideal world?

When I heard David Rockefeller say he was proud of what he was trying to do in creating the New World Order, I was stunned. He thought he was doing something good! When I really looked at the basics of the NWO, some of it was reasonable…some was even pretty high-minded stuff! So why did you guys sneak around behind our backs? Why didn’t you involve us in the process? We are an intelligent people. We see the over-population, the suffering, the wars, lack of development, hunger, and misunderstanding. We live the frustrations of our morbidly obese system! Why did you leave us out of what intimately affects us all? And for god’s sake, why would you do something as ass-backwards as trying to dumb people down? Why not develop them to a high degree in order to get cooperation and creativity? Not doing so was your biggest mistake.

Virtual Light Broadcast – May 2017

I have just returned home from a trip to Las Vegas where I had the great pleasure of being a guest of Steve and Barbara Rother and their Virtual Light Broadcast. You can check it out in the link below.

As usual, I drove, and it was – as always – very enlightening to go across the land, talk with people, and see what is happening in other corners of our country! Of course, old-time wisdom says that travel is not advised during Mercury Retrograde. I have to say there might be something to that old advice because I ran into numerous challenges. I discovered I had poison ivy my first night on the road. I ended up scrambling around in Rolla, MO. trying to find a soap scrub that would eliminate the ivy oils. I got to New Mexico where it was freezing and they were having a snowstorm…only to discover I had forgotten my coat. By the time I reached Gallup NM, the poison ivy was spreading wildly and I ended up online at http://www.DoctorOnDemand.com in the middle of the night to get a prescription that would reduce my misery, only to discover all of their pharmacies close at 10PM. I reached Las Vegas, which was HUGE compared to the last time I was there, and my interview and broadcast went well, but I had to scurry to a laundromat as soon as it was over to wash clothes in an effort to remove any poison ivy oils.

From there I went on to Santa Barbara CA where I stayed with a friend and had several important and interesting meetings. I also discovered that everyone in California is talking about leaving the U.S. and breaking away to form their own country! It made me sad to realize that from their point of view, they are finished with Washington DC and our union.

When it was time to come home, I had to contend with flooding and water everywhere. At my daughter’s home in Columbia, MO, the ground was so saturated that water was seeping up through cracks in the sidewalk and pavement! I was afraid I might have to stay west of the Mississippi for a few weeks, but by going north a little bit, I was able to cross! By the time I arrived home, I felt like I had been gone for months, not weeks. I slept for 11 1/2 hours. It was a good trip, Mercury Retrograde notwithstanding!
