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.

Killing Us Off vs. the Transfer of Money

Millions of people believe that the New World Order is trying to kill us off and reduce the population. And maybe they are. But behind every single wacky assault – from Bird Flu to Zika virus, the real goal is to have an excuse to transfer money.  Millions of dollars have gone into “research” of Bird Flu, and billions into Zika “research.” Who really got this money? I doubt that any workers got a raise just because the government was handing out emergency money. I’m sure the labs who received some of this money felt more secure, but who got the biggest chunk?

An even bigger money transfer game is climate change. Google the question, “How much money has been spent on climate change?” and just look at the first page of search results. Shocking! The amount was $21.4 billion in 2014, which was a little less than was spent in 2013.

That’s about $43 billion in only two years. Has the climate changed? Yes. Did the government do it? No. Where has the climate changed? It’s gotten cooler in a lot of places that were too hot, and warmer in a lot of places that were too cold. Record cold and incredible snows are occurring in northern Europe, across Russia and China, and down into Saudi Arabia. All of that is on the other side of the world. Meanwhile, record warmth has been occurring in America and Greenland.

If one side of the planet is suddenly cooler, and the other side is suddenly warmer, and natives of the Arctic and Greenland are saying the sun is coming over the horizon earlier than normal in the spring, then does it make sense that the planet may have rolled a little? Yes. Did the government make that happen? I doubt it. I know the government likes to think it is all-powerful, but if there is any climate change, they didn’t do it and neither did we ‘ordinary’ humans.

On the other hand, has there been a change in our environment? Yes. Why? Because we are tearing up our own home. Does it make any sense to keep dumping millions of tons of waste into the ocean when the oceans feed more than half of us? Does it make sense to build mega-cities in low-lying areas or in areas where there isn’t good air flow? Does it make sense to run miles of fragile oil pipelines across the landscape when we know that small earthquakes can and do happen regularly around the entire planet, shifting things about? Does it make sense to ruin the rivers, creeks, and streams so that the only clean water we can get is immature water from underground? Does it make sense to cut down forest after forest when we know that trees provide oxygen for us? Does it make sense to pour millions of tons of poisons and heavy metals onto our soils and then grow our food in it? Does it make sense to eat factory-made foods with no nutrition in them? Does it make sense to keep using oil when we have access to plasma?

We need to wise up and sort things out. Most of the stuff we accuse the government of doing to kill us off may be mostly something they dreamed up to transfer money among themselves. Much of what we call ‘climate change’ is really destruction of the planet’s systems that support our lives. No wonder the planet has rolled over! Thank god she hasn’t rolled into her grave. We need an entirely new way of living if we want to survive our own mess!

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.

 

 

Ch. 1, America—Breeding Ground for Psychopaths?

“It is 10:30 a.m. in central Florida. Beads of sweat drip from the foreheads of tourists waiting in long, winding lines at Disneyworld for an exciting ride on the Submarine Nautilus. Less than 10 miles away, 9-year-old Jeffery Bailey Jr. is also waiting. He is waiting for his young companion to die. After making sure that no one else is around, Jeffery has pushed 3-year-old Ricardo “Nicki” Brown into the deep end of a motel pool. He knows the younger child cannot swim and is afraid of the water.

“It is taking Nicki a long time to die. Jeffery gets tired of standing, so he pulls up a lawn chair to the edge of the pool. He wants a better view of how someone drowns. Jeffery stays by the pool until Nicki sinks to the bottom, lifeless. Then he puts on his shoes and shirt and saunters toward home.

“A short time later he asks another neighborhood child what the “icky white stuff” is that comes out of someone’s nose when they’re drowning. He doesn’t mention that Nicki is at this moment lying at the bottom of a pool.

“Nicki’s body is recovered from the pool at 6:40 p.m. by the police. Later, after neighborhood children have told Jeffery’s mother about the drowning, the youngster tells his mother about the “accident.” (Kissimmee Police Department, June 3, 1986)

Police officer Beth Peturka who investigated the case says she found Jeffery “kind of nonchalant, like he was enjoying all the attention.” On June 3, 1986, the State of Florida charges 9-year-old Jeffery with murder.”   —from  High Risk – Children Without a Conscience by Dr. Ken Magid and Carole A. McKelvey

I knew there was corruption, but I didn’t know how ugly, and I can’t help thinking about those lost children. How many parents and families put out photos of their missing babies, searching, hoping, but never seeing them again? What sort of agony must they be going through as they wonder, ‘Was it my little one among those who fell into the hands of the Clintons?’

I did not get much sleep last night. I would wake, weep, and then go back into a very restless state of half asleep, half awake. Few things get to me the way the corruption of Hillary Clinton and her team of psychopaths has. When something upsets me, I usually go inside to work on myself until I arrive at a new balance point and in the process, I learn something useful about life.  It is not often that I allow myself to get vividly angry.

The definition of a psychopath is one who is not bonded to anyone else, and is superficially very charming then suddenly explosively enraged. Someone with psychopathic characteristics is cruel, controlling, remorseless, tends to be impulsive without relying on common sense, and is given to primary process lying (which is continuing to lie even when it is blatantly obvious that they are not telling the truth). They are often very smooth and manage to project exactly what they are doing onto others, thus shifting the blame and responsibility to everyone but themselves. We have a government of pathological control-freaks and psychopaths.

I’m sure that I will be able to find that elusive balance point eventually, maybe when I am done grieving, but for right now… in spite of the fact that I keep trying to tell myself that maybe the reports coming out about the Clintons are not true…I’m so angry, so sad… for us, for those who have been raped, murdered, or defrauded…for the people of our country…for the people of Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine, and other countries invaded and destroyed by our crazies…for our future…and for the way the Clinton/Bush/Rockefeller/Soros machine just keeps marching ahead, media in hand, as if nothing has happened…as if we are going to fall in line as we usually do. How pathetic and stupid of them. I’m so ashamed of what passes for “government” here in the U.S. and for the way the rest of the world must be looking at us.

I worry, if I am so deeply angry about this, what are other people feeling? Three hundred million angry people would be a lot of anger. What are we going to do with all that anger? Anger is change energy that has not been allowed to go anywhere. How do we channel that energy into something better than what we’ve had for the last few decades?

9 Guidelines to Use When Navigating the Alternative News

This started out as a reply to Tom Van Berckel, but became an entire blog. Thanks for the inspiration, Tom! And thanks for the compliment.

You aren’t the only one who gets confused when trying to figure out what to believe or who to listen to when wading through the ocean of alternative news. In my experience, and from conversations with many others, it takes at least a couple of years to learn to navigate that ocean and develop the capacity to put together a realistic picture of what’s going on out there. Along the way you discover several things that really have more to do with consciousness than anything else.

#1 – everyone has their own point of view and whether we think their views are right or wrong is somewhat irrelevant. Their point of view tells us where they are at with their perception, NOT where we should be at with ours! We each NEED our own point of view because that is the center point from which we communicate, learn, change, and grow.

#2 – we live in a consensus reality system – but that consensus is VERY loose. In my view, it is amazing that it holds together at all given the huge diversity of beliefs, experience, and perception that exist here. It is only because of our tolerance (unspoken) for one another, and our gratitude (unacknowledged) for their willingness (unconscious) to help hold it all together, that we are able to continue with the reality.

#3 – the idea of “proof” is useless. Even the best of scientists rarely think in terms of “proof.” They say, “This is what most of us agree on at the moment,” and they know that new insights and information will eventually go beyond the current agreement. My own stand is that there is no proof, there is only what we each experience, and each of us is responsible for assessing that experience from moment to moment and responding to it wisely and well. For most of us who are trying to wade through the huge amounts of alternative news, a good rule of thumb for judging any news is that the reporter should at least have some evidence to show, and when they have finished offering evidence, they should make it clear when they are switching to their own interpretation of that evidence.

#4 – you will resonate deeply in your gut, your heart, and your mind when you see or read news that is true and important for YOU to know. Not all news is relevant to all people.

#5 – listen to what people say, but watch carefully what they do. Keep a notebook handy in which you jot down lists, or create a folder on your computer in which you save speeches of key promises and predictions that people make. Then pay attention to whether they do what they said they would do, or how they behave when the prediction doesn’t come true. A few people will complain that this is too much work, but this is the burden of being a real citizen. We are where we are in this country because the hens have been selling eggs AND fresh chicken to the fox – and no one is paying attention!

#6 – find news sources that do a fairly good job of synthesizing lots of information and presenting a well-thought-out view of the big picture, or that consistently present smaller slices of information in a clear and honest way. The task here is to eventually find news sources you trust and that you can return to again and again because their information is always presented in a straightforward,  thoughtful way that makes you think.

#7 – learn to discern the difference between sources that sometimes get excited or upset about something, those who are continually outraged and spouting off about it, or those that are always trying to incite fear and dread. It’s like the difference between fresh milk (news), sour milk (news with an attitude), and fermented milk (news with a hidden agenda). In each case it’s milk, but you will respond differently to each.

#8 – you have a right to be interested in some things and not others. Follow the threads of conversation and information that you find interesting, and let yourself become knowledgeable and aware in the areas that you are interested in. Some people love politics, others love to read about the economy, some are only interested in technology, or science, or war, or psychology. Some follow music closely, or entertainment, or sports. So follow your nose, consuming information and arguments about the things that interest you, and occasionally graze in other pastures that offer other topics.

#9 – as for “truth,” there is only one unchanging and reliable truth – and that is that everything in existence is made of an intelligent Light that we call God, or Source, or The Universe, or whatever. All the stuff that emerges from that Light is temporary, which is why we say it is an illusion. It’s really not an illusion, it’s just temporary in the sense that it is not eternal and forever unchanging like that Light is. But you can damn well count on having a sore foot if you drop a brick on it. You can’t just blow that off as “illusion.” The truth is that it hurts!

In closing…we are in the middle of a paradigm shift of global proportions. A paradigm shift is a change in consciousness. If you are going to make that shift along with everyone else, you have to take responsibility for what you feed that consciousness and what you do with that consciousness. We are moving out of the paradigm of one-size-fits-all-and-one-story-informs-all. How you assemble the world is up to you!
