Immaturity Among Nations

I have to laugh. The new trend in inflammatory rhetoric is complaining about other countries that “interfere” in national policy or procedures. First, it was the U.S. blasting Russia for the alleged hacking of Clinton emails. The latest is China blasting the U.S. because we invited Taiwanese delegates to Trump’s inauguration.  This reminds me of my children as they grew up. Each one got into trouble in some way and got caught…because adults talk to one another

I will never forget the day my second daughter stood in front of me, hands on hips, and said in her strictest, most powerful voice, “You may not discuss me with anyone. I forbid you to talk to other people about me!”

Trying not to laugh out loud, I simply said, “Sorry! Parents talk, teachers talk, and neighbors talk. That’s how we make sure no one gets into serious trouble.”

“That’s not fair!” she argued loudly.

“Life is not fair, and I want you to get to adulthood in one piece!” I replied. As I walked away I added, “And I’m going to talk about you with whoever I need or want to as long as you’re under my roof.”

The nations of the world are like a bunch of siblings with no parents. The truth is, there is no way that any nation can afford to not do what it must to find out what the rest of us are up to. There is no way that one nation can forbid others to talk, visit, or trade with anyone else. We need to talk. We need to know what is going on. We need to know one another. It will keep us out of trouble.

Media, Truth, and Perception

There have been a number of people asking me what sources I use for my information. The latest was Janet, so I decided to answer in a post.

When it comes to television, I watch it rarely, maybe once every couple of months. When I do, I watch Link TV with Amy Goodman. The rest of TV has been a wasteland for a long time and network TV will probably never fulfill the promise of its potential to develop and educate us.

Regarding newspapers, the mainstream newspaper I still read most often is the New York Times – mostly to get a good feel for the propaganda being perpetrated on the U.S. The NYT seems to have suddenly tempered some of their reporting a tiny bit since the election, but is still very biased and still failing to report all of what is going on in a balanced way. As for radio, I no longer listen to radio or NPR at all – most of that stuff is milktoast.

A side note… Since I travel to the east coast a fair amount, it is clear to me that the people in Washington DC and New York – all of whom have been lost in some very comfortable illusions for a long time – are about to experience a taste of what Detroit experienced when the Big 3 automakers suddenly found themselves ousted by Japanese carmakers…uncertainty, loss of income, abrupt expulsion from the illusion of security, a total paradigm shift, and a feeling of their world being turned upside down. My point in mentioning this is that all of the mainstream media has been totally controlled by the people in Washington DC and New York.

To get an idea of what is really going on and how people think and feel outside of DC, New York, and the U.S., I visit sites like NSNBC (my favorite), InfoWars, DrudgeReport, Breitbart, Truthdig, ZeroHedge, RealistNews, NewEasternOutlook, Xinhua News Agency, Jon Rappaport, RT News, Veterans Today, Washington’s Blog, Gmail News, French news, English news, Russian news, and a number of sites that are not well known at all but still provide a serious context for what is happening in the world around us.

I think it would be important to say that I am not looking for “the truth” from any of these sources. I am looking at the consciousness and assessing the language that is represented by each of these outlets. I then put together a picture for myself of what people are saying, thinking, and doing here and there. I weigh all of this along with what my own inner knowing is telling me, and out of this emerges a picture of what might be called “What is.”

This picture of ‘what is’ gets sifted, sorted, added to, subtracted from, dumped, retrieved, tweaked, and re-shaped again and again over the ensuing days and weeks, eventually resulting in something much broader and deeper than any media outlet could ever present. It allows me to see what is happening and to examine all of the factors that are in play at any given time.  In other words, “the truth” is something I discern for myself, and I am never in a hurry to declare what that truth is. What most people think is true, is usually just a momentary snapshot of where they are pointing their perception and attention.

People Voted for Change in Government…Not in the Electoral College!!

People are pushing the idea of removing the Electoral College!?! IMHO this is a very bad idea.

The Electoral College was formed with an eye to preventing any possibility of groups of states with selfish regional interests from ganging up on smaller states or states far away from their problems and issues, and then pushing their agenda onto those smaller or more remote states. It was a way of making sure that we were all in this together. Removing the Electoral College will clear the way for exactly this kind of ganging up to happen and will probably guarantee the breakup of the U.S. into smaller regional governments with localized platforms.

We stand a chance of breaking up anyway because we have grown past the practicality of democracy. The concept of “one-person-one-vote” does not work well once you get past a certain number of people. It’s like nanotechnology – all the rules change at certain sizes. Of course, we may also break up simply by leaving Mr. Trump in place, however, there is no reason to expect that anything bad will happen just because he is president – unless we are not paying attention to what is going on! People voted for change, but I don’t think they wanted change in the Electoral College… they wanted a say in their own lives.

Trump is only in for four years. Someone else may follow him IF we hang together as a country. Tearing up the Electoral College is almost certainly going to have long-term results that we do not want and didn’t expect, including the breakup of the nation. However one chooses to look at the situation, it is clear that Trump is a harbinger of change, and going back to change what worked in the past is not where we should be putting our time and attention. We must keep the democratic principles and move on and up to new forms of self-governance that are yet to be created.

Act One – Worries about the Donald

I was in bed and almost asleep at 10:26 last night when my iPad began going off.

A student wrote:

“OMG heaven help us!! This election is nailbiting!! WHAT did the Robes see in Trump over a woman (Clinton)?”

I wrote back:

“LOL, it isn’t about Trump vs. Clinton. It is about consciousness. It is about learning to see past illusions (Hillary represents a huge illusion) and choosing something above the consciousness of murder, rape of children, fraud, and betrayal that she represents. Trump is like the clown in the Memorial Day parade that distract your attention from the wounded and surviving veterans who march along in lockstep. We are the marchers in this parade, quite wounded, and needing to refuse the distractions that pull at us. We are at a serious point in our civilization’s evolution. If we choose the corruption of the past, we will collapse and disintegrate. Even if we choose the higher consciousness, there will be civil war to finish breaking down the old systems. Sometimes the only thing we will have to sustain us will be the knowledge that we made the right choice. If Trump is elected, he will have served his purpose and will likely not be with us very long. So quit biting those fingernails and watch what is unfolding. In itself, the whole election circus is a distraction from the drama of a huge gold theft going on across the sea. The Cabal has falsified ownership papers of 1 million tons of gold and is preparing to make off with it in order to stay in power. That is where the real tragedy is!

She then replied:

“.?! sigh..breath..breath…Gold is already rising like crazy… and what about Russia pushing into Estonia while we are preoccupied…

I replied:

“LOL YES… Breathe deeply…there is some really awful stuff taking place while we are occupied elsewhere. I heard that the U.S. blew up the power grid in Murmansk today putting 300,000 Russian people in the dark and cold. That’s up near the Arctic circle, so really inconvenient for those people. I am not surprised about the gold price. I expect silver will climb as well…and later on other things will fall, like our dollar.”

Electing Donald Trump is only the first act of evolving our civilization. I am going to look up an old story that teaches a lesson and brings insight into our situation. Back soon.

 

 

Underneath the Election Drama

I am watching the current election drama with great interest and a sense of the appalling. What appalls me is not Hillary’s corruption or Trump’s pompousness, it is how few people seem to recognize what is going on and what is at stake. I don’t want to get into a long story about my sources, but here is what is happening according to their first-hand involvement.

There are three factions involved in our political elections at the moment. One is the Bush-Clinton-Rockefeller cabal (BCR). Another is the Rothschild group (RG). The third is the old French and German noble families (FGN).

The BCR cabal has been described as a bunch of money-hungry, blood-thirsty elites who want to maintain their control over the U.S. financial system AND reduce population. The RG hates the BCR, however, the RG does want to maintain financial control and doesn’t really care if the population count goes down as long as they can profit from whatever is happening. The FGN families were a target during WWI and many went underground in order to survive the long-ongoing attempts to destroy the monarchy. They have regrouped, have come together, and want to break the back of the Cabal.

Even though the Rothschilds hate the Bush-Clinton-Rockefellers, these two groups have come together to support Hillary Clinton and get her into the presidency so the financial control will remain in Cabal hands. The French-German nobility are the ones who convinced Trump to run and are backing him all the way in the hope that he will win and break the Cabal’s grip on the financial system. These two sides (the BCR/RG vs. FGN) are in an all-out war. The BCR/RG side has said they will do anything to prevent Trump from winning. They are considering three possibilities: a nationwide EMP to knock out the computers at election time, a virus in the banking system that would bring everything to a halt, and a serious false flag attack in a major American city. In my humble opinion, if they were to use either of the first two options, they would be shooting themselves in the foot. The third option – a major false flag – is their usual “go-to” solution and if they were going to do anything at all, it would probably be the third option, especially if they could figure out a way to blame Russia, much as they blamed Iraq for the Sept. 11th attack.

Even though I would love to see a woman in the presidency, it is not Hillary. Some women are blinded by the idea that it is time for a woman to be president and don’t want to see the bigger picture of corruption hiding in plain sight in her background. If we’re going to have a woman at the helm, I want her to be someone with integrity, honor, and truth in her background.

Even though I wouldn’t ordinarily choose someone like Trump for president, I look at him and think, “Trump is a wild card. We really don’t know what will happen if he is elected.” Then I look at the Cabal’s history of corruption, murder, and deception that has filled the last few decades and think, “Do we dare use Trump to break the pattern…the power…the back of the Cabal???”

There is an old saying that may apply here. If you don’t like what you’re getting, do something different…do anything different…and be ready to ride the waves of change!

If Hillary gets elected, the Robes said long ago, “When the first woman gets elected, you will know that the end of your nation is near.”

If Trump gets elected, it is impossible to say how things might unfold. But I suspect that government will never be the same again. He may act more like a king than an elected president, but he is very smart and very capable of learning quickly. He would learn to respond. The question is, which of the many competing groups would he respond to? And can he rise above the competition to inspire a cooperative vision in all of us? That is what we must have in our leadership or we will continue to come apart.

I’ve tried to see which way things will go, but the problem is that I can’t see an election at all! I don’t know if I just can’t see clearly, or if, somehow, there isn’t going to be an election. We will have to wait and watch.

Is Hillary the Marie Antoinette of Our Time?

I look at Hillary and Bill Clinton as the Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI of our time. The truth is going to come out, and they are likely to be destroyed. If she becomes president of the U.S., and she continues to host the ongoing financial corruption, she may even inherit the French queen’s title, Madame Deficit.

Snapshot

[This is longer than I like my posts to be, but I couldn’t make it any shorter. It is structured as one brief introductory paragraph and one long, run-on paragraph because I wanted the information in the long paragraph to engulf you without a break in the same way the world engulfs us all…without a break, without time off, and without the ability to take little bites in the form of separate sentences that allow us to grasp things in neatly segregated pieces that we never put together as a whole.]

When I give a talk somewhere, I am frequently surprised that so many people have no idea what is going on in the world. They can hardly believe some of the things I mention, and I can hardly believe they don’t know what I’m talking about. At a talk last June, I promised to put together a list of newspapers and websites that I read frequently. As I was putting the list together, I ended up reviewing what is happening in the world. That led to forgetting the list of links and news sources, and putting together a “snapshot” of what is going on at the moment. I think the reason people don’t know what is going on is because U.S. media is feeding them drivel in order to keep things under control. You have to go outside our media to get the truth…or at least a broader and deeper view.

There are wars raging across the northern tier of Africa, all the way around the eastern end of the Mediterranean, up into the Ukraine, and over into Afghanistan. All of these wars have been started by the U.S. in an attempt to keep Russia landlocked, cut off Russian pipelines, and encircle China in order to contain the once-sleeping giant. Russia is bombing the strongholds of the U.S.-created, U.S.-trained, and U.S-financed terrorist groups known variously as al Quaeda/al Nusrah/ISIS/ISIL/IS. Japan is arguing with Russia over the Kuril Islands to the north of Japan, and Taiwan is the subject of arguments between the U.S. and China to the south. There is a ferocious but hidden war going on within the U.S. to wrest control of the U.S. from those who have taken over our financial system, our legal system, and the republic itself. When the corrupt ones in the U.S. were in full control, the goal was to get control of poor Syria, kick out Assad, and put in a “democratic” puppet. Now that the corrupt ones are teetering, the good guys in the white hats have made deals with Russia, Iran, and Iraq to make sure Assad stays, which is why Russia is bombing the heck out of ISIS strongholds in Syria…and why the U.S. really can’t say much because if they do, they’ll expose the truth about the fact these are U.S.-backed terrorists doing U.S. dirty work. Brazil is reeling from the same kind of corruption that has taken over the United States. Venezuela and Spain are arguing between themselves, even as Venezuela is fighting within itself and assassinating grassroots leaders who try to improve life for all. Somalia continues its fight against al Shabaab while it tries to deal with refugees from Ethiopia. Ethiopia continues to struggle with Eritrea and is the source of the second biggest refugee crisis in Africa. Eritrea is struggling with itself, its poverty, its martyrs, and its requirement of unending education and then unending “service,” which never allows anyone to leave. “The unfortunate ones who try to escape are kidnapped, or deported, held for ransom, sold, or used as body parts and left in the desert.” Egypt has seen a drop in their foreign reserve financial accounts from $35.8 Billion down to $16.8 Billion, making it clear that tourists and investors don’t like revolution. Yemen is still bombing and being bombed, caught in the foibles of the West and its northern neighbor, Saudi Arabia. Jordan is in bed with the Israeli-U.S.-Turkey corrupt ones and is involved in training terrorists. Europe is being swamped with refugees from Syria, Iraq, Libya, and other countries in northern Africa who are trying to get away from the wars that have bombed them back to the Stone Age. An international court has declared that data mining by the NSA is illegal, thus closing off NSA access to information from U.S. and E.U. corporations. Mexico is struggling to retain at least a little of its power, quite a bit of which has been smuggled away by drug lords who control whole cities. Afghanistan was a major site of fighting until the U.S. pipeline went through in the south of the country. It seemed to move to the back burner, but has recently re-emerged because the problem of how to keep control of that pipeline out of the hands of the Taliban have come up again. China’s economy has lost 40% of its value since June. It is being slowly smothered by coal smog, and the Chinese are not sure what to do after vicious attacks that tried to explode their main financial supercomputer in Tianhe, a computer that is twice as fast as anything the U.S. has. Canada seems frozen in a position of subservience to the corruption in Washington DC and can’t admit that their involvement in current wars is in direct violation of their own national laws. Ditto for France. Israel-The-Paranoid continues to pull the strings in Washington DC, because the U.S. military is the major military arm of Netanyahu’s cabinet. Fighting may have slowed between North Sudan and South Sudan, which recently broke into two countries, but both are uneasy. Chad, Niger, and Nigeria continue to fight Boko Haram – another bunch of terrorists started, funded, and trained by the United States. Turkey continues to play monkey-in-the-middle between Russia, Israel, and the U.S., while all four countries continue to exploit the amazing fighting skills of the Kurds who usually get dumped once the fighting is over. Libya may never recover from the various factions now fighting for control within it. It, too, may as well be back in the Stone Age. Ukraine continues to fight, then smolder on the back burner, then fight, then smolder on the back burner, depending on whether or not the U.S. needs it as propaganda against Russia. Australia can’t seem to find itself or a humane position from which to operate and suffers from serious foot-in-mouth disease as it struggles with the fact that it is located within the Asian sphere of influence while strings are being pulled from yonder England. Japan is under the thumb of the U.S. and their Prime Minister Abe is one of our puppets. Their struggle to get free of this has been ongoing since their loss to us in WWII. There has been a serious financial war going on between East and West that centers around the price of oil and an attempt to sink the Russian economy, which is based heavily on oil. Stupidly, we put sanctions on Russia, which merely taught them to be more resourceful and more creative. Within the West itself another war unfolds between the Rockefeller camp and the Rothschild camp. The Rockefellers are losing, mostly because the Rothschilds are older and have more experience. They also have the good sense to read the writing on the wall and have learned over time to go along with big changes while watching for ways to re-establish control. The Rothschilds don’t waste time trying to win petty battles only to end up losing the war. I think it’s quite interesting that, 1. An article in an Iowa newspaper presents an amazing and coherent story containing considerable evidence, including dozens of photographs belonging to Otto Skorzeny, that Prescott Bush and his son, George Herbert Walker Bush, were originally Nazi operatives and George’s real name was George H. Scherff. 2. That many Nazis fled to South America and assumed new identities, and 3. The Bush family has purchased huge amounts of land in South America where they intend to run if things get difficult for them here. Is the Nazi history trying to repeat itself? The Israelis are doing the same thing to the Palestinians that was done to them by Hitler. How will we ever heal Israel when she has cast herself as the perpetual scapegoat child of Earth’s family? In Argentina they are still using the excuse of “no birth certificate or paperwork – no rights” to deny hundreds of thousands of people the right to education, medical care, and income-producing work. The fastest internet systems in the world are not to be found in the Americas – either north or south. Almost all are in Asia or Europe, which brings the question, why doesn’t the U.S. have decent internet? Are they afraid of what full connectivity would do? There is talk of the coming Balkanization of the United States – a breakup into half a dozen regions – which has been the fate of many places, especially in Eastern Europe, and now the Middle East and Africa. Why? Because a small regional power will not have the ability to challenge a one-world government. The U.S. will run out of money on November 5th of this year. There are serious droughts in Zambia and faltering efforts to keep what little electricity they have going. South Africa is having similar problems. The islands of Kiribati continue to sink slowly as the seas rise. Germany is making the same attempt to distract its citizens with sports and movie drivel as the U.S. does to its citizens. That may backfire as the Germans try to absorb 1.5 million refugees from everywhere who are hungry and tired and have no interest in drivel. And if you have any doubt that Americans are being fed a lot of belly-button gazing, narcissistic crap designed to keep us distracted and dumbed down about what is happening, take a quick look at this website!!:

The great paradox about this age of perfect communication, of course, is that nobody knows anything about what’s going on.” – Wolcott Gibbs, from Backward Ran Sentences, written in 1941.
