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.  

 

 

 

 

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.

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.

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.
