Pristine D.C.

Back in 2011 or thereabouts, I happened to be in Washington D.C. to give a lecture. I met someone for lunch in a nice neighborhood, and on my way home took a wrong turn and got lost. Trying to find my way back to my hotel, I ended up driving through one neighborhood after another. These were fabulously expensive neighborhoods with beautifully landscaped yards. Workmen were everywhere, mowing lawns that looked like green carpeting, pushing wheelbarrows filled with new flowers to replace the ‘out of season’ ones, trimming bushes and trees, sweeping driveways, blowing leaves and miscellaneous debris into neat piles to be picked up. It was all so pristine.

I thought about my farm back home in Michigan with its dandelions, wildflowers, untrimmed trees, and the wildness of its fields. I thought about Detroit, and Flint, and the many abandoned houses I saw everywhere I went across the entire state. I thought about how I was struggling to hang onto my place, how everyone I knew was hurting financially, looking for work – any kind of work – when it suddenly struck me that the people in Washington D.C. had not even been touched by the financial collapse of 2008. They were living in a different world. They neither knew nor cared what was happening in Michigan.

I eventually found my way back, but the stark awareness of the ignorance of Washington D.C. about what it was like to lose your livelihood, your workplace, your security, and your home never left me. With the election of Trump, I wonder if Washington is going to have their own version of upheaval, loss of livelihood, workplace, security, and home.  

 

 

 

 

12 Wishes for Christmas – #11

#11 – May an expansion of consciousness free us all from illusions of grandeur, control, and unnatural majesty. May we learn to recognize when the king has no clothes… when the grandeur is false, the control is constricting, and the majesty is a foolish waste… and realize that we seek only to know the truth.

12 Wishes for Christmas – #9

#9 – May men and women figure out the framework of the new relationships of the future that balance commitment, freedom, integrity, respect, and the need to continue developing one’s consciousness. The object of a relationship is not to preserve the relationship, it is to be mirrors for one another…and to enjoy the gift of life while you have it.

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.

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?

Bilderbergs?

I was traveling with my daughter this past week and mentioned something about the Bilderbergs.

Her response: “What are Bilderbergs? Sounds like some kind of Lego toy.”

Not only had she never heard of them, she perceived their name as sounding like a toy. I thought this was hilarious and had to share.

Hillary – Health Drama…Or Planned Escape?

A number of people sent me articles about Hillary’s “collapse” at the September 11th memorial ceremony and the mistaken announcement by ABC that she was dead. Several people even called to ask what I was seeing around Hillary’s health. So here is the straight answer.

There is something that doesn’t sit right with me about the rather sudden focus on health issues for her and for Bill Clinton. Is the whole drama a script designed to fake her death…and then Bill shortly afterward, so that we all think they are gone…when their real plan is to “disappear” and go off to Argentina or Bolivia or some equally distant and unknown place to live out their days without being prosecuted for all of the murders and other crimes they have committed? It has been reported that Richard Rockefeller faked his own death last year or the year before and is now living the good life freely in South America.

A plan to fake one’s death has to be very carefully organized and carried out so no one figures out what is really going on. In the case of Hillary, her “death” would have several benefits. First, she could retire in peace.  Second, she would be able to abscond with the money she’s made through so many unethical deals. Third, if the death occurred before the election, it could possibly delay the entire election process and give the Democrats time to try to figure out how to prevent Trump from being elected. If it happened after the election, her vice presidential choice would step into the presidency. The Republicans used that same plan with Ronald Reagan. They forced Reagan to accept George Bush for vice president because they were planning to assassinate Reagan and usher Bush into the presidency. But the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray! Reagan survived, the Republicans had to slow their plans and bide their time, and Bush was forced to go through his own election process, although there was no sweat in doing so because that process was already being manipulated to get the outcomes the Cabal wanted.  If Hillary’s VP was previously hand-picked by the Cabal to carry on the same old agendas, the corruption would continue, perhaps even deepen, and it would be more difficult to create needed changes.

Of course, it is possible that Bill and Hillary are just getting older. It is possible that in spite of all their money, they don’t have the time or inclination to seek out the best and latest medical care. It is possible that they don’t know how to take care of themselves, or have just been so busy with their political careers that they’re worn out and falling apart…but somehow I can’t buy any of that. As usual, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
