It is clear now that the new Trump administration has a heavy military flavor. Some people think that Trump is assembling a bunch of reactionaries who want to impose overt fascism, in some sort of coup d’etat. The positive interpretation is that the corruption in our nation’s capital has reached such an extreme that military action may be necessary to clean up the mess. There are two potential timelines, and we the people will collectively determine which road we go down. No one knows what the future will bring. However, we can influence what will manifest in the future by understanding the power of our own co-creative consciousness. One thing is certain: Trump’s election is making people think about the future.
Corruption Is Endemic
It is clear that our political process no longer works. When my snowblower broke down, it had to be taken apart and a new carburetor installed – the old one was simply unusable. When a political system breaks down, you have to clean house and start over. CBS News reported that the Congressional approval rating in November 2015 was 11%. An average of all polling data between October 28 and December 20, 2016 shows the Congressional approval rate at 14.2%, slightly up after the election. However, when 86 people out of 100 don’t approve of what their elected officials are doing, representative democracy no longer exists. The system is corrupt, it is rigged, and we all know it.
240 years ago we faced the same problem: an unresponsive government ruled by special interests. Remember that our country was established during the Revolutionary War.Our founding fathers were armed combatants, determined to overthrow an established government that did not represent the common good. Today, we face the same problem. Our government is controlled by a private corporate elite, but the solution back then is not the solution we need today.
Although America’s War of Independence was a military conflict, the revolution itself was grounded in ideas (not dogma or ideology). Read the Federalist Papers, a collection of essays by those who built the philosophical foundation for the new country back in the 18th century. The founders of this country were idealists; but in the 1760s and 1770s we were still mired in the old consciousness. It was important to have a philosophical underpinning for the new country, but it was also necessary to take to the streets. Fortunately, in 2016, violent revolution is no longer necessary. We now have an almost instantaneous worldwide communication network where ideas can be transmitted around the world almost instantaneously; in this environment violent revolution will be harmful, not helpful. The final battle between good and evil is being fought in the mental plane; in our hearts and minds. It is a battle of ideas, not armaments and soldiers. The ideas we choose will determine the timeline and the manifestations that occur on that timeline.
The election of Donald Trump – like him or hate him – was a wakeup call to the entire nation, just as the Boston Tea Party was three centuries ago, on December 16, 1773. If you recall your history, the Americans threw 342 chests of excellent British tea into Boston Harbor. The British Parliament, outraged by the destruction of British property, then enacted the Coercive Acts in 1774. The Coercive Acts closed Boston to merchant shipping, established formal British military rule in Massachusetts, made British officials immune to criminal prosecution in America, and required colonists to quarter British troops. The colonists subsequently called the first Continental Congress to consider a united American resistance to the British. Today, the passage of the Patriot Acts, the Military Commissions Act, the Homegrown Terrorist Protection Act, the Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act of 2016 (which essentially creates a U.S. Ministry of Truth) and many others, have essentially gutted our constitution. Historically the parallels are never exact, but history tends to repeat itself if the lesson isn’t learned. Well, the lesson is again up for review, but this time we cannot fail!
Who Is to Blame?
Before we blame Trump or the Republicans (if you are a Hillary supporter) or Clinton and the Democrats (if you are a Trump supporter) for the mess we’re in, consider the idea that these actors were placed on the political stage by the decisions we have all made. We the people have caused the problems our country faces. Our collective consciousness determines what is possible and what isn’t, just as the condition of the soil determines what can and cannot grow. We have voted into Congress and the White House, decade after decade, people who were less and less concerned with the common good than with their own political and personal good; who abandoned their responsibility to the nation. When President Eisenhower told us to beware the military-industrial complex in January 1961, we didn’t listen. When JFK was assassinated in 1963 we did nothing. As our country has become further corrupted we have continued to vote for representatives from the same two parties, over and over again, trying to get different results. As a result, during the past 70 years, a private, trans-national security state has developed. Their unacknowledged special access programs have been out of the purview of our elected officials since Eisenhower’s warning. We the people have allowed that by choosing security over freedom; consumerism over idealism. Now, the situation is totally out of control. This planet is now a corporate fascism run by an unelected planet-wide security state. Public governments and their – our – elected officials are almost completely out of the loop. We are living in a Matrix of lies and deceit, and the heart of it is here in the United States.
On the surface, it is perfectly reasonable to conclude that the election of Trump is a continuation of the inevitable march into darkness – and many people have already so concluded. But things are not always as they seem. When the truth comes out people are going to be shocked. Our nation is going to be turned upside down, and the Trump election was just the beginning. Now, discernment is more important than ever. Some mainstream press outlets, in a desperate attempt to save the old order, have come up with a list of “fake news” sites from a group calling itself PropOrNot, most of which are guilty only of expressing alternative opinions, and some of which are on the leading edge exposing corruption. (Yes, there ARE fake news sites, but “fake news” is rapidly becoming a symbol for “information I don’t agree with.” Please use your own discretion).
One of the best ways to get a point across is to constantly repeat it. However, just because something is repeated over and over doesn’t mean it’s true. Repetition is an accepted tenet in advertising and in propaganda. Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda minister, said,
“It would not be impossible to prove with sufficient repetition and psychological understanding of the people concerned that a square is in fact a circle. What after all are a square and a circle? They are mere words and words can be molded until they clothe ideas in disguise.”
Goebbels also said,
“Not every item of news should be published. Rather must those who control news policies endeavor to make every item of news serve a certain purpose.”
In journalism this technique is called framing. (I have always wondered what the little phrase at the top of the New York Times meant: “All the news that’s fit to print.”) If you watch or listen to the news with discernment, you can tell if framing is occurring: do the stories have a similar theme, or do they make you think a certain way?
“Propaganda must facilitate the displacement of aggression by specifying the targets for hatred.”
This last quote is illuminating because politics today (at least in the US) is mostly emotional rabble-rousing and argumentation against someone or something; rational debate and tolerance for opposing viewpoints is almost totally lacking. Moreover, as in the second quote, there is a disturbing trend toward propagandizing the news, even in traditional, professional outlets, making it very difficult to discern truth from disinformation. For example, on November 24th the Washington Post published a story – "Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say" – that has been the basis for ridiculous claims that Russian hackers interfered with the U.S. election. The Post has since distanced itself from that story with an editorial comment appended to the article, which you can read here: https://www.washingtonian.com/2016/12/07/washington-post-appends-editors-note-russian-propaganda-story/
However, the idea that “the Russians” tried to undermine the U.S. election has made it into the public consciousness. It has been repeated by other news outlets and is now accepted as factual. This is a good example of Goebbels’ first and third quotes above.
What about Trump?
Donald Trump has made things worse with his crudity, but I believe that Trump himself is just a passing character on the stage, a bit character, a man who can and will be swept aside if he goes too far. The intelligence I read says that Trump right now is backed by white hats in the military and intelligence sectors, but that could change if he doesn’t do what history has placed him in the White House to do – act as a true change agent for the common good. As I said in a previous blog post, Trump is the smelly, ugly guy with the wrecking ball who is here to help knock down the decrepit old structure so the bright new shiny building can be erected. He is only a precursor to real change, not the end result. If he screws up he may be quickly removed.
This opinion, of course, presupposes a positive outcome. But what’s the point of living at all if you believe events will inevitably take us into the dumpster? What’s the point of nattering and thus creating potential negative outcomes? All of our complaining (and inspiration) goes directly into the planetary consciousness, thus shaping the collective consciousness, and our collective future.
We either believe in the ascension process or not. Ascension is the idea that the human race can finally cease our petty squabbling and work together on a planet-wide basis. Being negative just brings about negative outcomes. Personally, I have an unshakeable belief that we are headed toward a positive future. It may get ugly for a while as the filth gets cleaned up, but when light penetrates darkness some horrible stuff is going to be uncovered. Are we in the light enough to confront it and hold to our spiritual beliefs? I think we are / will be.
2016–2019 are going to be whirlwind years for change here in the US and on the planet. The momentum has just begun in 2016 with the election of Donald Trump.
The Second Revolution
In the US we have now reached a level of tension and polarity that, historically, could only be resolved by a revolution. We’re either going to embrace the Constitution and the Bill of Rights – the ideas laid down by the founding fathers – or we’re going to go down as a nation. That is what the old order is hoping. Get ready folks: Soon, names are going to be named, and butts are going to get kicked. And some of those butts belong to people that will shock us.
Personally I think Trump is just a temporary catalyst to get the changes underway. The rats nest in Washington DC needs cleaning up, and we are on our way to that. My guess is that we are going to have a peaceful revolution, backed by white hats in the military and intelligence community who are going to obey their oaths to uphold and defend the constitution of the United States. But chicken littles, “experts,” and press outlets – both mainstream and alternative – are going spread chaos, fear, and anger as fast as they can in an attempt to keep people fighting each other, as Goebbels’ third quote above advises. A good “straw man” is always helpful to stir up the emotions! The point is that despite perfectly good reasons for it, contention is contention, no matter what opinions you hold, and contention creates negative energy.
Problem resolution through conflict and fighting is the paradigm of the old order, and insanity is doing the same things over and over, expecting different results. We can’t solve problems with the same consciousness that created them in the first place. Therefore, we can’t just talk about peace, tolerance, and love, we have to demonstrate it. We have to walk the walk and not just talk the talk in our lives, every day.
(In the near future, if I am right, the names of those who have committed crimes against humanity will become known. Well, the only solution to that is tolerance even though it is perfectly reasonable to put these guys up in front of a firing squad. At that time the feeling will be, as King Steven said to his executioners about 100 discovered traitors, “I want them all out of this world before nightfall.” But to kill those who have killed is to immerse ourselves in the consciousness of the old paradigm for another 5,000 years. The solution to injustice is not more hatred! My suggestion is to create a website called Revelations that has a pic, a name underneath, and a list of crimes committed. Getting outted in front of 7.5 billion people is punishment enough! That is down the road a little way though. We are still in the beginning stages of an ascent to fourth-level consciousness [planetary consciousness]).
The Final Battle
The battle between good and evil is here, right now, and it’s in the hearts and minds of the people. Either we raise our consciousness to the next level or we will sink back into the darkness. Donald Trump is just a symbol of the coming battle. It was never Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton, or even freedom versus fascism; it’s love versus hate. It’s ALWAYS been love vs. hate. If hate prevails during this 2016–2019 window, expect war, poverty, injustice, crime, scarcity, and violence to continue during the current millennium, for we will have burned our future path into the collective consciousness. Our civilization will collapse and it will be OUR fault, not evil bankers, politicians, or David Icke’s alien masters. We are writing the script; the actors on the stage can only say the lines and do the things we write into the script. It’s called co-creation. Every planetary society is sovereign IF the people stop fighting each other and pull together!
The benevolent ETs aren’t going to land on the White House lawn; the angels aren’t going to come down from the skies and save us. We’re going to have to do this ourselves. Tolerance and compassion are the keys to a spiritual victory, and action when required. In our daily lives we are always presented with choices: get mad at people or try to understand them. Millions of these choices are made every day in this country and around the world, and every single one of them counts. Collectively, they have a profound effect on the mass consciousness and are tallied up on the board, energetically. Winning those battles will give us the victory.
All of the significant action is on the mental plane now. There is an invisible, holographic, programmable field of subtle energy that surrounds our planet, containing the thoughts, beliefs, and choices of 7.5 billion people. It dynamically interacts with every person on the planet. It’s what makes co-creation work. It’s real, not new-age bullshit. Our thoughts and actions create and maintain it.
The human energy grid stores all thoughts and, through the law of attraction, influences our individual thoughts and actions. Some guy in New Delhi is contributing to the collective consciousness just as much as someone in Berlin or Chicago or Beijing. Distance is irrelevant. This invisible grid of energy is consciousness-based; it’s like the script to a stage play, and determines what the actors think, say, and do on stage. We are writing that script, we have been writing it for 5,000 years. Now, as awareness increases, we are finally becoming aware of our co-creative power. It’s time we understood that our spirituality is the most important factor in whether we make it to a new civilization. In this crucial period, the decisions we make every day are counted in the ledger, and determine the balance. Make your decisions for a bright new world! It’s easy to say, “Choose compassion over anger,” but it’s the most important thing we do in our lives.
