The light is exposing the dark underbelly of human society. The Jeffrey Epstein saga, which gets more bizarre by the day, is the trigger point. An event, a person, acts as a trigger or a catalyst that releases hidden activities.  We know that Epstein kept meticulous records of his interactions with the people he associated with. A lot of powerful people (so-called “elites”) are worrying right now.

The idea that Epstein committed suicide is improbable. Only one prisoner has been able to commit suicide within the Manhattan Correctional Facility, and that was back in 1998. The Washington Post reports today (August 15)

An autopsy found that financier Jeffrey Epstein suffered multiple breaks in his neck bones, according to two people familiar with the findings, deepening the mystery about the circumstances around his death. Among the bones broken in Epstein’s neck was the hyoid bone, which in men is near the Adam’s apple. Such breaks can occur in those who hang themselves, particularly if they are older, according to forensics experts and studies on the subject. But they are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation, the experts said.”

The New York Post reported this, also on the 15th:

Jeffrey Epstein was confident he could fight the child sex trafficking charges against him and was in “great spirits” just hours before his jailhouse death on Saturday morning — even telling one of his lawyers, “I’ll see you Sunday,” The Post has learned.

The convicted pedophile also told his lawyers that the neck injuries he suffered in an earlier incident at the Metropolitan Correctional Center were inflicted by his hulking, ex-cop cellmate, which led the lawyers to request that he be taken off a suicide watch, according to a source familiar with Epstein’s case.

Epstein’s optimism behind bars — expressed during daily visits with his lawyers that lasted up to 12 hours each — was so great that it struck some of those around him as “delusional,” the source said.

“He thought he was going to win the double-jeopardy motion” that his defense lawyers were planning to file in connection with his 2008 Florida prostitution conviction, the source said.”

Jeffrey Epstein is not going quietly into the night. Unlike Jimmy Saville, who abused children for decades while working for the BBC, Epstein is eventually going to blow open the lid on the worldwide pedo networks. It’s going to take some time, but this is a positive development. As I’ve been saying on this blog for quite a while, humanity cannot make progress toward peace on earth until enough people confront the dark side the human race has created over the past several millennia. Epstein and his activities are part of that dark side. Pedophilia and child abuse has existed since before the time of Christ, in Babylon and even in Sumeria thousands of years ago. It has existed in every human society; no one culture or country is exempt. The time to expose it, and those involved, is now.

Why IS the duality Intensifying?

In the midst of the Epstein saga, the hatred between “left” and “right” is intensifying, fanned by politicians and media on both “sides.” #ClintonBodyCount vs #TrumpBodyCount (a recent Twitter trend) is a perfect example of how the duality has polarized, and how phony and superficial the debate has become. Alec Baldwin has even said that “the Russians” killed Epstein! I thought we had finally dismissed that idiocy with the testimony of Robert Mueller before Congress, but I guess people will believe anything.

Why is the duality intensifying?

Because the so-called “elites” are involved: “important” people in politics, business, and entertainment. They are fighting back, mainly against Trump, who was the moving force behind the arrest of Epstein. A lot of people hate Trump because of his divisiveness, but some of the “important” people hate him for fear of exposure. Some people say Trump himself is involved in pedophilia, but I don’t think so. We’ll see.

The driving factor behind the intensifying duality is a metaphysical one: the light is penetrating the darkness and exposing it. This is happening because the human race is experiencing a collective rise in consciousness, driven by the desire of the collective to change conditions for the better. That which has always remained hidden is now coming into the light.

Those who have no understanding of self, or lack spiritual awareness, won’t get this; it will sound like airhead nonsense. But it’s true! These days materialists are totally confused, for there is no “scientific” explanation for the insanity that surrounds us.  

As I’ve said before, we cannot reach ascended status unless the darkness within the human psyche, and in human societies, is exposed and dealt with. That’s just common sense. If you are one who refuses to even look at darkness, wanting to stay always in the light, you are going to be faced with the dark sooner or later. Either it will come from within your own Akash or you will see it in current events. The duality will probably intensify even further; it will reach even those who choose to ignore the current situation.

Staying in the light should be the goal of all self-aware persons; but those who resist the dark will attract it, simply because of the law of attraction and the law of vibration. A balanced person will be able to see both dark and light, and not be afraid of either.

I’m not saying that you have to listen to the news, or keep up with current events. But we are living in a co-created reality, and some of us are creating a dark reality. So, unless you are already a Master, you are going to be confronted with the dark side.

What does the dark do? Those who embrace darkness take the natural, divine, God-given duality and enhance the lower consciousness aspect. On a planet of free choice, this is a conscious choice.

In God’s design, the duality is a good thing. Contrast, or opposites, provide an impetus for change and advancement. It’s why people tell you to get out of your comfort zone. However, there is one aspect of the duality that is almost a universal law: low consciousness cannot see high consciousness, but high consciousness can see lower consciousness. This means that the bully, the predator, the anti-social personality, the child molester, are so limited they cannot see the higher vibrations of harmony, peace, and understanding. People like this say that pedophilia – having sex with children and even babies – is a natural human impulse.

Therefore, when confronted by low consciousness, the higher consciousness person has a harder time. You cannot reason with a person like this; they firmly believe they are justified in their twisted, dark activities. In the past, the only argument a low consciousness person understood was force. And so war and conflict prevailed on the planet for thousands of years. “Re-educating” someone in the old energy was hopeless. Dark army actors like Stalin, Mao, Idi Amin, and Pol Pot used “re-education” to justify the murder of millions.

How Does High-Consciousness Deal With Low Consciousness?

The vibration of the planet, although slowly rising, is such that a higher consciousness person may not be able to muster enough tolerance and love to transmute the lower consciousness person, who uses the tactics of fear, intimidation, and intolerance. We all know how it feels. In everyday life it’s called “having a bad day.”

What to do?

A lot of us take seminars and courses, go to inspirational lectures, or take a vacation. But that usually only works for a short time. Then you’re back to the grind.

What works for me is to understand that the darkness is part of the duality. When it comes into your life, recognize that it’s a natural phenomenon on a planet that is throwing off the dark and going to the light. The duality must intensify if the darkness is to be confronted and then transformed. That’s because most people simply ignore events. How did Jimmy Saville, the UK pedophile, get away with abusing kids right on the properties of the BBC, for decades?

Pedophilia is reported in the news almost every day, but people ignore it.

Therefore, the darkness is going to intensify until it is in the faces of everyone; until it is impossible to ignore.

This is true for individuals, groups, and nations. When the light hits it harder and harder, the dark gets exposed. The dark army will be forced to come out from under the rocks and openly organize for its very survival. When the planet was more low-consciousness, the darkness could remain hidden. Now, it cannot. So now it’s more visible. It’s being recognized and reported, so it seems that the planetary vibe is worse, not better.

Nope. It’s way better now, despite the insanity. Chaos is the natural result when light penetrates darkness. The dark guys go nuts.

It isn’t pleasant. Makes me wonder why I volunteered to come to this place!

Unfortunately you don’t get to wave a magic wand and make everything go away. In an advancing civilization that is coming out of the dark, the path to the light MUST lead through the darkness.

The Path Out of Darkness

That path, for each of us, is slightly different. However, there are some common elements that all who go to the light must master: tolerance and compassionate action. I didn’t say unconditional love, because that’s impossible except for the Masters.

Tolerance can often be, simply, biting your tongue. You want to lash out at the low consciousness person, but you know it will escalate emotions and make you (and them) feel worse. So you zip it and walk away. It works because when you get into a fight you almost always regret it afterward. Even if you think the other person is a bozo, by not manifesting anger you keep the social vibe from going to low-consciousness. That’s a win for everyone.

Humans in this society have been taught that backing down is a sign of cowardice, but not engaging is actually a sign of great strength. Anyone can get angry and let off their feelings. Adolescents do that all the time. But grown-ups are bigger than that. Simply by NOT getting angry you are raising the vibe of the entire planet.

In other words, you don’t have to express love to an angry person because for most of us this is impossible. Just not expressing your anger in the moment to another living being is an enormous accomplishment. Then you go home and smash something on your workbench, or go for a walk. Tolerance isn’t love, but it’s a great beginning to a personal state of higher consciousness.  

Compassionate action is recognizing when someone is in trouble and helping them.

Tolerance and compassionate action is what is needed now amidst the chaos and the intensifying duality.

As the Democratic debates descend into attack mode, with candidates even bashing the policies of former Democratic President Barack Obama, I’m wondering where this is all leading. After the first set of debates I concluded that in this era of Democratic identity politics, Kamala Harris surely would have the best chance, being a woman of color. But after the second debate, in which my favorite Dem Tulsi Gabbard (who served in the military and went to Afghanistan) eviscerated her record as a prosecutor, and got a lot of applause for it, it occurred to me that the Democratic debates were being scripted. The front runner, Joe Biden, is being attacked by the other major players (Elizabeth Warren, Harris, and Bernie Sanders) even though he still leads in the polls. Biden is being taken down, slowly but surely, like a pack of dogs harassing a weakened elk.

I was talking to a 28-year-old (a kid to me) and he says everyone his age and younger is all for Bernie Sanders. They like his anger at the “system” and his fresh new ideas! (Oh dear, the naiveté of youth). I can’t criticize because in my younger days I voted for George McGovern, who could be considered, back in 1972, as that era’s Bernie Sanders. But does Bernie, with his way-out socialist/communist program, really have a shot to beat the Trumpster? I don’t think so. There are still too many old fogies like me out there who remember the Cold War, and how the commies destroyed Russia, China, Cambodia (Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge), and Eastern Europe, establishing gulags and killing 100 million people in the process.

So what is my theory? That Michelle Obama is being groomed to step in as the Dem nominee. It’s kinda like friendly fire destroying the troops before they can get set to fight their enemy, Donald Trump. I was going to do some research for this and write it up. Then I saw that Robert Bridge, writing for the Strategic Culture Foundation, already did a bang-up job on this conspiracy theory. So here’s the link to the article. What do you think?

The election of Donald Trump was a wildcard in human affairs, as I have mentioned before. Like him or hate him, Trump’s election was a bomb exploding within the old system, breaking it apart. Here’s just one example of a crack in the old paradigm:

NY Fire Commissioners Call for New 9/11 Investigation, Citing ‘Overwhelming Evidence of Explosives’

History was made this month in regard to 9/11 as New York area fire commissioners called for a new investigation into the tragic events that unfolded that day. The resolution called for a new investigation due to the “overwhelming evidence” that “pre-planted explosives . . . caused the destruction of the three World Trade Center buildings.

On July 24, 2019, the Franklin Square and Munson Fire District, which oversees a volunteer fire department serving a hamlet of 30,000 residents just outside of Queens, New York, became the first legislative body in the country to officially support a new investigation into the events of 9/11, according to Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

The resolution calling for a new investigation was drafted by Commissioner Christopher Gioia and it was immediately and unanimously approved by the five commissioners.

‘“We’re a tight-knit community and we never forget our fallen brothers and sisters. You better believe that when the entire fire service of New York State is on board, we will be an unstoppable force,” said Commissioner Christopher Gioia, adding, “We were the first fire district to pass this resolution. We won’t be the last.”’

“According to the report

“The complaint cites the failure of the FBI and its 9/11 Review Commission to assess key 9/11-related evidence that the FBI can be shown to have had, or been aware of, regarding:

  • the use of pre-placed explosives to destroy World Trade Center Buildings, 1, 2, and 7;
  • the arrest and investigation of the “High Fivers” observed photographing and celebrating the attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11;
  • terrorist financing related the reported Saudi support for the 9/11 hijackers;
  • recovered plane parts, including serial numbers from all three crash locations;
  • video from cameras mounted inside and outside the Pentagon; and
  • cell phone communications from passengers aboard airplanes.”

Those of us who have been following “conspiracy theories” for decades are about to see a few of them, at least, become validated. I am excited to finally learn the truth about what happened on 9/11. The official explanation that airplanes took down the Towers was always preposterous to me. We’ll see.

The pentagram is a symbol used in black magick and other dark, occult practices. These practices are associated with evil, pedophilia, satanic ritual abuse, child trafficking and molestation. The people who do these things haven’t a clue what the symbol means. Many of the people who discuss the pentagram have no idea of the geometry behind the symbol.

This is a short article because the truth is simple and powerful. Ignorance and perversion occludes the truth and makes things complicated. When the dark twists the light it must hide the truth behind a lot of disinformation and silly ritual.

The pentagram is a geometric symbol. Here is what one writer says about it:

Morons who think the pentagram is an evil symbol use it in dark rituals.

The inverted pentagram, however, is just the interior of a pentagon, like so:

The pentagram is actually a representation of perfect, divine harmony

The pentagram has 5 points on the outside of the circle. You just connect the diagonals together as I have done here, to form the orange lines on the inside.

The pentagon, geometrically, represents perfect mathematical harmony. Do you see how the orange lines run into each other and form smaller lines? Each of the orange lines is divided into 3 smaller lines: a small one in the middle, surrounded by 2 bigger ones.

If you measure these lines and compare them to each other you discover an astonishing fact: they are all in Phi Ratio. Phi represents perfect mathematical harmony. This has been known for thousands of years. So the inverted pentagram actually represents God, or divine harmony.

Notice how the intersecting orange lines form a smaller pentagon in the middle. If you draw diagonals in this smaller pentagon you also get Phi ratios of perfect harmony. This pentagon can grow the same way into a bigger pentagon. So the pentagram, inverted or not, also means divine growth and divine contraction.

In fact, all of the lines in the pentagon (including the black ones) have a Phi relationship with each other. Thus the pentagon, and the pentagram, is literally a geometric representation of God – divine, perfect harmony.

Now ask yourself a question: How can people use this symbol in evil rituals?

Answer? They are really, really, really ignorant.

Don’t be fooled or scared by evil, or the dark. As Q says, “These people are stupid.”

This information can be found on my geometry pages at, which are excerpts from my geometry book, available at

Office of the Special Counsel head Robert Mueller testified before the House Judiciary Committee and the House Intelligence Committee yesterday. People on both sides of the aisle agreed that Mr. Mueller’s testimony  did nothing to forward the impeachment of Donald Trump.

Mueller seemed to bumble and stumble his way through. He couldn’t even identify Fusion GPS, the opposition research outfit that provided input into the famous Steele Dossier, which was used  to obtain FISA warrants on minor Trump campaign operatives George Papadopoulos and Carter Page, which was then used to get info on higher-ups in the Trump Administration.

People in DC were very confused by Mueller’s performance. Apparently, this guy is regarded as a razor-sharp pit bull who knows everything about his cases. So why did Mueller appear so befuddled during his testimony yesterday?

Here’s a theory.

Recall that Attorney General Jeff Sessions, an Alabama Republican, recused himself from overseeing the Mueller investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, which was to probe the connection between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. Sessions didn’t want to be seen as biased because he is a Trump supporter. Here’s how the New York Times tells it:

Mr. Rosenstein appointed Mr. Mueller to take over the F.B.I.’s investigation into whether Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election and what part any members of the Trump campaign may have played in those efforts, as well as whether the president tried to obstruct the investigation. He then oversaw Mr. Mueller’s work because Jeff Sessions, a former Trump campaign adviser and the attorney general at the time, had recused himself from all campaign-related inquiries.”

Source: “Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to Step Down in May,” New York Times,

So who was responsible for the oversight of the Mueller probe after Jeff Sessions stepped away? Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein.

Rosenstein was seen by Democrats in the House and Senate as sympathetic to Mueller, and not sympathetic to Trump. To see this, just look at the confirmation votes in the Senate for Rosenstein and Sessions. Rosenstein’s nomination was overwhelmingly supported by both Republicans and Democrats. Sessions’ nomination barely squeaked through because Democrats knew he was sympathetic to Trump. So when the Mueller probe began, from the first day, Sessions was gone and Rosenstein was in charge.

As we all know, Mueller hired people who didn’t like Trump. All of Trump’s 18 prosecutors/lawyers identified as Democrats. This is easily seen because Trump, during the two-year investigation, constantly railed (and still does) against the “18 Angry Democrats” and “the Witch Hunt.” Democrats basically gave Trump the finger, telling him to stop whining and live with it.  

What happened next is the interesting part.

In 2018 we found out about a “plot” (so the Republicans say) to wire people in the White House to secretly record Trump’s conversations. This plot was to collect info that would show that Trump is mentally incompetent, and to use the 25th amendment to remove him from office.[1]

 Rod Rosenstein, if you recall, called it “a joke.” But I’m not so sure it was a joke. Remember Omarossa, the former Trump aide? She was let go back in December 2017. Omarossa claimed this was because Trump is a racist. She even wrote an anti-Trump book about her time in the White House, titled Unhinged, which got a lot of media play. But what if the real reason for her firing was that she was wearing a wire? Here’s what Wikipedia says about this:

Omarosa Onee Manigault Newman (born February 5, 1974), often mononymously known as Omarosa, is an American reality television show participant, writer, and former political aide to President Donald Trump. She became widely known as a contestant on the first season of NBC's reality television series The Apprentice. After becoming assistant to the president and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison during the Trump administration in January 2017, Newman resigned the White House on December 13, 2017. Subsequently, she competed on the first season of Celebrity Big Brother, making it to the final five of the season.

In August 2018, Newman published Unhinged, detailing her tenure at the White House and criticizing Trump and his administration. Two days before the book was released, she released the first of as many as 200 secret tapes she recorded during her White House tenure. As of 26 July 2019, she has released four tapes. The first tape she released, which was secretly recorded inside the Situation Room, was described as ‘one of the worst White House security breaches ever,’ though the tape is thought not to violate the Espionage Act.”

Wikipedia, " Omarosa Manigault Newman "

This makes a nice conspiracy theory doesn’t it? But it gets better.

Recall that Jeff Sessions resigned as AG in November 2018.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned on Wednesday at President Trump’s request, ending the tenure of a beleaguered loyalist whose relationship with the president was ruined when Sessions recused himself from control of the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.”

(Source: Washington Post, 20 November 2018, “JeffSessions forced out as attorney general,”

Rod  Rosenstein retired from the Justice Department in May of 2019, just after  the Mueller investigation ended in April and the report was issued.  Trump then appointed William Barr to be Attorney General.

Apparently Bill Barr has a lot of respect in DC as an able lawyer, with both parties.

Here’s where the conspiracy theory comes in. What would have happened if Jeff Sessions had never resigned?

Well, the Mueller investigation would have continued. Leaks to the press would have continued, showing Trump and his alleged involvement with the Russians. But why? So that Trump, known for his gigantic ego and his impulsiveness, would have had to eventually fire Mueller and his team. This would have led to another Saturday Night Massacre. It would have been Watergate all over again. Trump could then, legitimately, be accused of obstruction of justice. This would have led to impeachment proceedings, just as it did with Richard Nixon back in 1972. Another Republican president would have bitten the dust, yay!

But, strangely, Trump did nothing except rant on Twitter for two years as Mueller and the media pounded him. He let the investigation continue, he provided documents, he did not cite Executive Privilege (as Nixon did) and allowed witnesses in the Executive Branch to testify before the OSC. (Trump has asserted executive privilege when it comes to his taxes, but that is an entirely different matter.)

But once Barr was appointed, Mueller and the OSC had to face the fact that they were now being overseen by a highly respected lawyer with high credentials, and someone they had respect for and had worked with in the past. The OSC knew they couldn’t mess around with Bill Barr.

Mueller, before he testified to Congress yesterday, realized he was trapped. During the previous two years he had the support of the Deputy AG and all Democrats in Congress. But after the 2018 mid-term elections, progressives like AOC, Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar began attacking moderates in the Democratic party, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The Democrats began to splinter. Moreover, the release of the Mueller Report itself was basically a dud politically. Mueller didn’t charge Trump with any crimes, although he did say Trump wasn’t exonerated. Nevertheless, Democrats (all of the people in the OSC identified as Dems) weren’t happy.

When the Mueller team disbanded, another attempt was made to breathe life into Russiagate. Mueller was asked to  testify before Congress about the report. But Mueller was in a bad spot. Although he didn’t like Trump, he knew that there was really nothing behind Russiagate. Christopher Steele, Mifsud, Stefan Halper, George Nader (who was accused recently of sex crimes) and the other actors in the Russigate play couldn’t connect Trump to Russian spying. Mueller knew his report was lame, he knew that his new boss, AG Barr, knew it was lame, and his Democratic backers were now in disarray.

Media observers were confused by Mueller’s performance. But Mueller knew he had a flimsy case with Russiagate. He could have given the Dems their sound bites but if he did, it would be a liability for himself and his teammates. He knew Barr already had an ongoing investigation about the origins of Russiagate, and that the actions of his team were being scrutinized. If his testimony actually did lead to an impeachment investigation of Trump (this was clearly the purpose for the hearings) the actions of the OSC would have been exposed when the investigation uncovered that their flimsy case against Trump was largely manufactured (the Mueller report itself is long on accusations and short on evidence).

Mueller didn’t even know what Fusion GPS is? Beyond his purview? Nonsense. Sure he looked tired, but Mueller is a sharp cookie.

I think he reasoned like this: If he admitted he knew Fusion GPS was an opposition research group whose research was paid for by the Democratic National Committee, and that the Steele dossier was paid for by Perkins Coie, the Clinton’s law firm, the question from Republicans would be, “What have you been doing for the past two years?”

Moreover, Mueller knows his report is filled with inaccuracies. Here’s just one example: the Mueller Report mentions Joseph Mifsud, a European academic with ties to Link University in Rome, a training ground for Western intelligence agents. John Solomon, of The Hill, says this:

Mueller’s team alleges that Mifsud is the person who fed a story in spring 2016 to Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos about Moscow possessing purloined emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”

[Note: this is the collusion story promoted by Mueller, that the Russians hacked the DNC server to get Hillary’s emails, and that the Russians then gave these emails to Trump.].

It was the earliest known contact in the now-debunked collusion narrative and the seminal event that the FBI says prompted it on July 31, 2016, to open its probe into the Trump campaign. Mueller concluded that Mifsud was a person with extensive Russia ties who planted the story about the Clinton emails in Moscow and then lied about his dealings with Papadopoulos when interviewed by the FBI in 2017. Papadopoulos has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Mifsud. But unlike others accused of misleading Mueller — including Papadopoulos, former Trump adviser Michael Flynn and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort — Mifsud was not charged with a crime....”


Why not? Could it be that Mifsud wasn’t really working with the Russians for Trump? Solomon continues:

A May 2019 letter from Devin Nunes [Republican House Intelligence Committee member whom the Democrats love to hate]­ to U.S. intelligence officials reveals photos showing that the FBI conducted training at Link in fall 2016 and that Mifsud and other Link officials met regularly with world leaders, including Boris Johnson, elected today as Britain’s new prime minister.... Mifsud received instructions from Link superiors to “put Papadopoulos in contact with Russians,” including a think tank figure named Ivan Timofeev and a woman he was instructed to identify to Papadopoulos as Vladimir Putin’s niece. Mifsud knew the woman was not the Russian president’s niece but, rather, a student who was involved with both the Link and LCILP campuses.... ”


Oh what a tangled web we weave, when we seek to deceive. Why didn’t Mueller even interview Mifsud, who was readily available? If the Russiagate narrative is correct, Mifsud could have provided direct evidence against Trump. Sounds like Mifsud is trying to entrap a Trump advisor, not collude with the Russians against Hillary. Moreover, if the FBI suspected that Mifsud had ties to Russia, why would it provide training to his academic group at Link University? These are the sorts of questions that would have been asked if Mueller didn’t present himself as dazed and confused.

Mueller did the only thing he could do: pretend to be an idiot. But he isn’t an idiot. It was a great acting job though. The special prosecutor was covering his ass. And he did a really good job of it.

What’s Next?

The Mueller Report will be swept aside by the investigations into child trafficking. Jeffrey Epstein is just the tip of the iceberg. Flight logs of those who traveled to Little St. James (“Pedo Island”) are known. All those who used Epstein’s “services” are known. Some of these people – businessmen, entertainers, and politicians – are famous. They are going down. When that happens, the silly blip known as Russiagate will disappear into the dustbin of history.

When Russiagate is analyzed it will be seen as an op by a group of people that couldn’t accept the results of the 2016 election. The reasons for that are tied up with the dark networks, including (particularly) the sex trafficking and child trafficking networks, and the organizations and people running them. By the time November 2020 rolls around, a lot of this stuff will be revealed.

We live in troubled, but interesting, times.

[1] The relevant portion of the 25th amendment is in Section 4, which states the following (italics mine):


“Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

   “Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.”

In the last blog post an image was posted of a trans woman and a straight woman:


The subject of sexuality is a hot button for many people. The debate between straight and trans, between lesbians, gays, and trans persons, can often get heated.

To understand this issue better, I suggest that we take a more meta-physical point of view.

First off, we’ll reject the materialistic Western theory of consciousness that “man is meat” and that self-awareness comes from neurons firing in the brain. Let’s accept a more Eastern view that people reincarnate, and don’t die after the body ceases to function. Let’s assume that each human being has a divine, spiritual, non-physical component that continues, lifetime after lifetime, incarnation after incarnation. In Western thinking, the human being has a higher self, or soul, that is not dependent on the physical body.

Now let’s ask the question, “Does a being reincarnate as the same sex for every lifetime?”

If you have only had a few incarnations on the planet, this question is moot. There are 5 billion newbies here now. Between 1926 and 2011 the population of earth increased from 2 billion to 7 billion. That means that most of the earth’s population have only had a couple of incarnations. Let’s say that in order to be comfortable during the lifetime, the newcomers have always incarnated with the same sex. But what about the souls who have been here dozens of times, hundreds of times, or even thousands of times? Does a person ALWAYS incarnate with the same sex?

That’s very unlikely. It’s much more probable that the other 3 billion of us have been both male and female, multiple times. For old souls, we have probably transitioned genders many, many times.

You get used to being one sex; it gets comfortable being a man or a woman. The Akash of the being becomes biased toward one sex or the other.

What happens when a being has been a man for 20 consecutive lifetimes but transitions into a female body? What happens when a being has been a woman for 20 consecutive lifetimes and then transitions into the body of a man?

When it comes time to transition to the opposite sex, the first lifetime after the transition can get uncomfortable. A being whose Akash is biased toward the male, when he gets into a female body, can become a lesbian. The physical body may be attracted to men, but the being is attracted to women. Similarly, a being whose Akash is biased female,  when she gets into male body,  can become gay.

This is an entirely natural process when we look at it from a meta-physical viewpoint. It would seem, then, that a certain percentage of the human population will always be LGBTQ, as souls transition between the genders.

Now that medical technology allows people to literally change their physical sex, it becomes easier for the soul to become a trans person. It is now possible to have much more compassion for transitioning souls as they try to adjust to a new sex, or change the sex of their body in order to lead a more comfortable life. Combine this with the ongoing light-dark battle, in which the light is penetrating everywhere, transitioning souls can be very uncomfortable right now.

So the trans woman in the image above may have been born into a male body with a bias toward the female. It’s not hard to imagine that such a soul would want to appear as a woman even though she is in a male body.

Old souls, as well as those with many lifetimes who have been through this process, will subconsciously/intuitively understand this transitioning process very well. The newbies won’t have a clue. They have been one sex for all of their incarnations. Naturally, it would seem ridiculous to them to want to transition to another sex. Idiocy! Well, these souls haven’t yet been here long enough to undergo the transition process. But they will, eventually. When that happens, they will need compassion, or at least, tolerance.

Politics and Religion

Religious beliefs tend to get in the way of sexual understanding. Religious persons will say that homosexuality is twisted and just plain wrong. LGBTQ people will overreact and call religious people fascists and bigots.

This is understandable if we take the meta-physical view, but without this big picture understanding a lot of hatred can be generated.

Both sides of this argument are right. For those who are comfortable in their bodies, LGBTQ persons seem weird. To LGBTQ persons, straight people can be awfully narrow-minded and bigoted.


The sexual molestation of children (or anyone) is, however, inexcusable. Pedophilia is a dark, twisted expression of the incarnated soul that must be eliminated from our societies.

While the straight-LGBTQ issue is just a straightforward soul/Akash/body issue, pedophilia is a dark-light issue. No matter how many TED talks are given, or posters printed (see below) pedophilia is not a natural human impulse. It is dark, twisted, and evil. Pedophiles must be identified and removed from society. If you disagree with that, too bad. Abuse of any kind is low consciousness and has no part in a planet that is going to the light.


What’s the difference between fake and real?

That is usually in the eyes of the beholder. Mostly, people accept as fact that which is in agreement with their beliefs. It is a rare person indeed who objectively looks for info on both sides. Certainly not anyone in the current political madness.

However, underneath the surface, a clearing of sorts is occurring. The real IS being separated from the fake.

“Nah,” you say. “Reality is perception, and that’s different for every person. Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda minister, said that he could convince anyone that a square is a circle if he repeated it often enough.”

This argument has validity. Propaganda is based on the simple truth that repetition, even of a blatant untruth, can be accepted as fact if enough people agree.

Nevertheless, propaganda is based in materialism, in the idea that people are pieces of meat, unintelligent ciphers that will simply absorb information. Those who promote propaganda are themselves materialists interested in a service-to-self paradigm. Their calculations are based on getting people emotionally excited and/or stirring up opposition and hatred for their own benefit.

However, they simply cannot calculate for the unexpected/unknown spiritual factor in a human being. This factor is present even in people who claim to be atheists, because inside the biology of every human is the God template. This higher template can be ignored, but will often show up during times of confusion or severe stress. The 2020 election is likely to be very stressful.

This spiritual/higher self connection is ignored, necessarily, in polling and surveying, be cause this invisible  connection is not measurable. It is the variable that results in “wildcards,” or unforeseen outcomes such as the election of Donald Trump in 2016 when the election of Hillary was supposedly a given.

The 2020 election will be based on the perception of fake versus real. It’s already happening.

Here is a pic of a trans woman confronting a binary woman. Which one is fake and which one is real? Here is what one anonymous commenter posted:

Observe his vaguely threatening stance and gesture; the difference in size between his massive skull and hers....the remnants of what appear to be sideburns on the side of his face versus the woman’s clear cheeks; the intense expression on his face versus the bewildered expression on hers, the sheer difference in size between their torsos – his is probably double the size of hers; his masculine profile with his chin jutting out and his longer face versus her rounder face. [The] assertion that...there is no meaningful difference between them makes for the most exquisite irony when their differences are juxtaposed so vividly. The contrast is almost divine. On the left is man’s hubris, his desire to capture the beauty of nature and make it his own, his cerebral and conscious understanding of what it means to be what he thinks he is, his intentional “becoming.” While on the right is nature, beautiful, effortless being. No doctor’s appointments or hormones or surgeries, just an “is” that needs nothing added to it in order to be complete. He tries so hard and yet the harder he tries to “become” the further he takes himself away from the effortless “is” of the thing he wants to be.”

I post this not to make fun of anyone, but to show starkly the difference between real and fake. There IS truth, but truth is not facts, figures, statistics, opinions, or emotions. TRUTH is what appeals to the divine within each one of us. When we fail to appreciate what and who we are, we diverge from real and become fake. The object of life is the discovery of who we are, and the acceptance of our life path and our soul mission. That discovery goes beyond the tawdry materialism of the body.

Who knows, maybe the life path of this guy is to balance the energies of male and female; perhaps he feels the feminine energy and is doing all he can to make himself congruent with it. I applaud that, as long as it does not infringe on the rights of others to have their own beliefs.

 Looking at a photograph like this will inform you of what you consider to be real. I’m all with the woman on the right, but an LGBTQ choral group I attend the concerts of has many trans people in it, and they would identify with the person on the left. To each his own, but the essence of a person goes beyond the physical body.

An assertion that two things are identical when they are not is a lie. It’s fake, it’s Orwellian. It’s a diminution of the language and the startling difference between what is real and what is fake. The guy on the left is not a woman, no matter how many cries of “transphobic” are uttered. The assertion of something over and over is an attempt to propagandize; it is not (necessarily) a fact.

For example, I accept completely the fact that the person on the left believes he is a woman. But to say, “If you do not believe that the person on the left is a woman, then you are transphobic,” I will not accept.  For the simple reason that such an assertion, and the demand that I alter my own belief system, destroys my personal self-determinism and my integrity. No one has the right to demand that of another.

A person is free, as far as I’m concerned, to assert that he or she is anything he or she wants to be, and to demand my tolerance of that assertion, but not to control my own thinking. Nevertheless, fascists, communists, nazis, dictators, lunatics, and other psychopaths have been doing this since humanity came out of the caves. The demand to control another’s thinking is rooted in a terrible personal insecurity, and indicates mental, emotional, and/or spiritual imbalance. Persons who demand that you change your beliefs to suit them NEED others to change in order to be happy, but this is an insufficiency within them.

The need for others to change is a violation of their free will, and denotes personal immaturity. Sorry to say, but a person’s feelings and emotions are their responsibility. A person learns this after he or she (or they, if you are gender neutral) grows from adolescence into adulthood. If you never learn this, you never learn any responsibility at all, for if you do not have sovereignty over your own emotions you cannot live a happy life. You can’t be happy if you constantly demand change from others but not yourself. It’s pretty simple.

 Now that I’ve insulted half the readers, I’ll get back to the point of this article: The election of 2020 is the most important in this country’s history. We have to decide, as voters, what kind of country we want: a country that recognizes personal responsibility and personal freedom, or a fake country that demands adherence to a “one-size-fits-all” line of thought. Will we become a country that continues to tolerate pedophilia, child abuse, satanism/satanic ritual abuse, and corruption?

Before the election next November, enough info will have come out about the dark networks across this country to scare the shit out of you. Then, all of us will have to decide what is truly real, and what is fake.

How is it all going to work out? In today’s chaotic political environment everyone is shouting at each other. This is the goal of the dark army, whose aim is to spread chaos.

Most of my friends simply don’t pay attention to any of it, which is probably the sane way to go. However, by not paying attention you make decisions based on a lack of information, and are more easily manipulated by a mainstream and alt-media where journalistic standards have been abandoned in favor of strident political agendas.

On the one hand we have Trump, who claims everything is getting better and better. On the other hand, the opposition Democrats claim Trump is a racist and a fascist, but offer no workable solutions other than Green New Deals and Medicare for All. Each of these programs would cost twice as much as our $22 trillion dollar deficit to implement.

The US is in the middle of a systemic breakdown of the old order, run by elites who are used to rigging the system to benefit themselves.

How is it going to work out? The answer to that question is 100% dependent on We the People. On the surface this seems like an absurd statement, for do not elites hold the power? What can the little guy do?

The Power of Consciousness

Over the years, in my articles, books, movies, and blog posts, I have made the argument that the collective consciousness of humanity assigns the parameters of action for everyone, including so-called elites who have rigged the system. The Game is actually controlled by the 8 billion, not the elites. That’s because of the incredible creative power of consciousness. In the body, for example, disease cannot take hold if your vibration is high enough. Royal Raymond Rife proved, 80 years ago, that the pathogens that attack the body resonate at a much lower level than do the organs and cells of the body. However, a human being can lower his or her vibe and become susceptible to disease.

“But environmental pollution also causes disease.” Yup. And what is the collective vibe of humanity that allows corporations to pollute our air, land, and water? It aint very high folks. Whose fault is that? Evil corporations? Or a collective humanity mired in low consciousness and ignorance of its own power?

Actions follow thought. Action is determined on the mental plane, via the thoughts and intentions of the population. So far, humanity has been fragmented. We have not gotten our collective shit together, because we have been convinced that a human being is powerless and  insignificant. We have been convinced by dead-head materialists (the so-called “elites”) – who have no self-awareness or spiritual understanding of their Higher Selves – that we are powerless. So the human race does not use its power to create reality because we don’t think we can. Or, more accurately, human beings unconsciously create a default reality shown to us by mass media. It’s the same thing.

The only power the “System” has is to convince us that we are powerless. That about sums it up.

Look at the situation this way. Reality consists either of many, many worlds depending on which quantum experiment we conduct (decisions we make), or there is one universe with an infinite number of potentials, and our decisions determine what materializes. According to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy,

The Many-Worlds Interpretation (MWI) of quantum mechanics holds that there are many worlds which exist in parallel at the same space and time as our own. The existence of the other worlds makes it possible to remove randomness and action at a distance from quantum theory and thus from all physics.

“The fundamental idea of the MWI, going back to Everett 1957, is that there are myriads of worlds in the Universe in addition to the world we are aware of. In particular, every time a quantum experiment with different possible outcomes is performed, all outcomes are obtained, each in a different world, even if we are only aware of the world with the outcome we have seen.”

“The Many-Worlds Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics,” at

In this interpretation, what’s done is done. You make a decision, you live with the outcome. The other decision you MIGHT have made now exists in another universe, and another you is living it. Basically, in this interpretation, you missed the boat and are stuck with the decision you made. (Of course you can always make another decision, but that in turns spawns a chaos of more and more worlds, and more and more “yous” living them. A person can get spread mighty thin doing that!)

In the other interpretation, which corresponds quantumly with the Schroedinger equation, there are an infinite number of potentials in one universe, all superimposed on each other. You get to decide which one manifests. In this interpretation of reality, if you don’t like the outcome you can select a different one from the “soup” of potentials.

I like the second one better because it puts you at the center of your personal universe, not spread out all over the place. It makes you the creator of your universe and empowers you. Potential outcomes in the physical universe surround you all the time. You just have to pick the best one.

The problem is, we don’t do that.

“That’s nonsense,” you say. “I’ve tried that and it doesn’t work. How can a couple of thoughts stand up to reality? I want to be a millionaire and that aint happening.”

Sigh. Saying that you want to be a millionaire (or similar ideas) is saying “I want to be prosperous.” If everyone was a millionaire, everyone would have the same amount of purchasing power and NO ONE would be rich. Saying “I want to be a millionaire” is saying, “I want to be the rich guy.” OK, that’s cool, but that is a zero-sum game. If someone is a millionaire then a lot of other people have to be just average, or poor. This kind of goal is self-defeating because it doesn’t operate on the axiom of the best solution for everyone. It’s a service-to-self postulate that can work (because of the law of attraction) but it requires that a few win but many more lose.

Doesn’t that sound like a description of the world we live in? It’s a service-to-self world where a few land on top and the rest are scrambling to survive. These self-serving goals/postulates very often don’t work because they aren’t inclusive enough.

However, the statement “I want to be prosperous” is much more open-ended. It includes being a millionaire, and a lot of other potential outcomes. It doesn’t require a zero-sum game where some win and some lose. You can select from a number of potential outcomes and let the laws of the universe sort it out for you.

“That’s stupid,” you say. “WTF are the laws of the universe? That’s nonsense.”

Well, there are laws of the universe, but I’m not talking about physics. I’m talking about meta-physics. These laws are invisible to scientific instruments but they operate everywhere. They are based, not in materialism, but in the mind of God, who created the universe and everything in it.  Sorry, but materialists who are dissatisfied with this explanation will continue to struggle, whether they are “on top” or “on the bottom.” If you have any self awareness at all, you know there are higher laws that are beyond today’s materialistic science (see The Vibrational Universe).

Let’s get back to the title of this essay, “Interpreting the Chaos.” The chaos is being created by 8 billion human beings who don’t understand the power of consciousness. Most of us have no clue what consciousness IS. Science and neurobiology tell us that a human being is a piece of meat, and that consciousness comes from neurons firing in the brain.

Ladies and germs, if we are ever going to make it out of the chaos we have to stop giving adolescent ideas like this any credence at all. This is an idea promoted by an elitist orthodox “science” that is geared to keeping human beings stupid and brain-dead.

The current political chaos is being created by confused human beings who don’t understand they can choose an outcome that benefits everyone (not just themselves) and that the laws of the universe will work to mesh these decisions together.

You Aren’t Believable

This philosophy has been decried by thinkers for centuries. The best (and funniest) criticism is Voltaire’s character Pangloss in Candide. Pangloss says, cynically, that all is for the best “in this best of all possible worlds.” Yet bad things continue to happen to him. In a brilliant analysis of Candide on Sparknotes (believe it or not) the author says the following:

This optimistic sentiment is the main target of Voltaire’s satire. Pangloss’s philosophy parodies the ideas of the Enlightenment thinker G. W. von Leibniz. Leibniz maintains that an all-good, all-powerful God had created the world and that, therefore, the world must be perfect. When human beings perceive something as wrong or evil, it is merely because they do not understand the ultimate good that the so-called evil is meant to serve....

Voltaire illustrates two major problems inherent in Pangloss’s philosophy. First, his philosophy flies in the face of overwhelming evidence from the real world. Pangloss is ravaged by syphilis, nearly hanged, nearly dissected, and imprisoned, yet he continues to espouse optimism. He maintains his optimistic philosophy even at the end of the novel, when he himself admits that he has trouble believing in it. Voltaire advocates the induction of ideas from concrete evidence; Pangloss, in contrast, willfully ignores any evidence that contradicts his initial opinion....

Second, Pangloss’s philosophy encourages a passive and complacent attitude toward all that is wrong in the world. If this world is the best one possible, than there is no reason to make any effort to change things perceived as evil or wrong.”

“Pangloss,” at

Here is where the chaos occurs in our thinking: We don’t recognize the power of consciousness. Eight billion human beings continue to vibrationally co-create a world of conflict, struggle, and endless war. Through our expectations and intentions we set the vibrational baseline, or scope of action, for everyone on the planet. This “reality” is, however, a created reality. A very powerful reality created by most of the human race. The evidence for this reality manifests because action follows thought, and is congruent with the level of consciousness.

Fortunately, some of us are beginning to wake up and create something different. When enough of us do this, the power of thought and consciousness will be further recognized and the world will shift vibrationally upward, making lower consciousness activities impossible, just as a body with a higher vibration will reject a disease that others might get.

Pangloss Was Right

I argue, despite all evidence to the contrary, that Pangloss is right. The laws of the universe work to bring to humanity precisely that which is being created in the collective consciousness, in the most harmonious way possible. If we are dissatisfied with the current reality, why do we focus on what is not wanted by fighting and resisting it? “Resist” is the goal of the dark army because it spreads hatred and chaos.

Truly, the world we live in is, as Pangloss says, “the best of all possible worlds.”  We’re creating the reality we live in. Now we have to become bright enough to recognize that we’re doing it.

The latest in the battle between dark and light involves Elon Musk, the owner of the Tesla corporation, and SpaceX. Musk wants to go to Mars and the moon and he has all kinds of grandiose ideas. His latest, as I discovered from the NBC News site:

Elon Musk wants to hook your brain directly up to computers — starting next year The Tesla and SpaceX founder announced a goal of implanting chips into human brains as early as next year to create direct human connections to computers.

Elon Musk, the futurist billionaire behind SpaceX and Tesla, outlined his plans to connect humans' brains directly to computers on Tuesday night, describing a campaign to create "symbiosis with artificial intelligence." He said the first prototype could be implanted in a person by the end of next year....

Musk founded Neuralink Corp. in July 2016 to create "ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers." The company said in 2017 that its initial goal was to devise brain interfaces to alleviate the symptoms of chronic medical conditions.

It's widely presumed, however, that Musk is characteristically after something much larger. He has frequently warned that the rapid advance of artificial intelligence, or AI, threatens to leave humanity in the dust, calling it an existential risk.

Musk repeated Tuesday night that one of the goals of Neuralink was to treat brain disorders, saying, "We can solve that with a chip."

But he went on to say that it also sought to help you "preserve and enhance your own brain" and to "create a well-aligned future."

As he has before, Musk warned that as it stands, humanity is at risk of being left behind by the rapid advancement of artificial intelligence, or AI — "even in a benign AI scenario — hopefully, it is a benign scenario."

Addressing that, Musk said Tuesday, will require finding a way for the brain to "merge" with AI, most likely through tiny wireless chips implanted in the brain through a 2-millimeter incision to create what he called "some sort of symbiosis with artificial intelligence," with a goal of no less than securing "humanity's future as a civilization relative to AI."

What do you think of that? My opinion: it’s more transhumanist garbage.

The transhumanists don’t believe in spirituality, or that the human being has a soul. They don’t believe that humans reincarnate. They are materialists firmly rooted to a dense, three-dimensional, dystopian reality. They want you and I to stay there as well.

Where do you think guys like Zuckerberg and Musk get their funding? These are people connected to the intelligence community. They get whatever money they need to set up their companies, hundreds of millions of dollars, if necessary. Then a shore story is invented for the gullible public – such as that cutesy movie about Zuckerberg (“The Social Network”) – to explain their sudden, meteoric success, and ability to attract mega-donors. They didn’t tell us in that movie that Facebook is DARPA’s Project Lifelog, they didn’t tell us where he got the money and, more important, the support and the infrastructure, to make Facebook a planet-wide operation.

Transhumanists are afraid of death. Their only solution is cryogenics or biological “enhancement,” which is the destruction of human biology by implanting it with foreign, dead material (electronics) that is yet programmable by more of these dead-head materialists.

We all have free will.

You wanna implant your biology (which contains the God template within it, in a multi-dimensional format), and destroy that God-given  temple of yours – good luck! You can only discover the road to higher consciousness by meditating, by spiritual understanding, by realizing your divine origin.

Materialists are people with low consciousness. They have no understanding of their own spirituality, or the beauty of human biology and its merkaba, the vehicle of light that is an extension of the soul.

Poor Elon.  He is either a dupe, or is willingly participating in an agenda that will eventually destroy the physical lives of those who attempt it.

The good news: No matter what you do to your body, your merkaba remains intact. You will ascend out of the body at physical “death,” leave all of your energy on earth from the lifetime, and return to Source good as new.

So, I suppose my ranting about transhumanism is pointless.

It’s just that I object to lower consciousness people trying to turn humanity into a planet of controlled zombies.

The question for transhumanism is: Who are the controllers?

You can find the article here:

On this blog we’ve said for a long time that when the light shines on the darkness, the old order will start to crumble. We’ve noted how Donald Trump is the change agent for the entire planet, whether you like him or not. Some people call the chaos we are experiencing as the end of the world, but it’s not. It’s just the beginning of the end of an old-energy paradigm based on darkness and lies.

This idea is beginning to seep even into the mainstream media. A remarkable (I think) NBC news article written by Steve Krakauer expresses this idea. I think this article is very important so I’m quoting the entire piece, which can be found at the NBC news site:

Jeffrey Epstein's downfall and the crumbling of America's elites. Society is tearing down the broken and rotten institutions and pushing bad actors previously shielded by their ivory towers into the spotlight.

Steve Krakauer, July 16, 2019

It was December 2010, and Jeffrey Epstein was sitting down for dinner with some of his famous friends — personalities who spanned the TV dial from morning to late night. There was George Stephanopoulos, then the host of Good Morning America, CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric, and E! comedian and late-night host Chelsea Handler. It was 18 months after Epstein had been released from “prison” (in reality, he spent six days a week working in an office during his year-plus work-release stay in a Florida jail) for pleading guilty to a lesser charge of solicitation of prostitution with a minor.

Accused of far worse, Epstein pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of solicitation of prostitution with a minor. The dinner also took place less than a year after Epstein settled “at least a dozen civil lawsuits … filed by women who allege they were molested by Epstein when they were underage,” according to the Miami Herald. It was a mere five months after the registered sex offender finished his probation and was allowed to leave the state of Florida.

The downfall of Epstein is great news for his victims who were denied justice the first time around, But it’s also the latest example of a recent, broader phenomenon.

All of this was reported in a 2011 piece in The Daily Beast by Alexandra Wolfe, which has taken on new resonance as Epstein has, finally, mercifully, been arrested again.

The downfall of Epstein is great news for his victims who were denied justice the first time around. But it’s also the latest example of a recent, broader phenomenon — the crumbling of the elites. This crumbling can be traced to a growing distrust with all forms of power. A 2017 poll by The Associated Press found an astoundingly high 82 percent of America say they think “wealthy people” have too much power and influence in Washington. At the same time, Americans’ trust in government is at historic lows, according to a Gallup poll this year. For Democrats and independents, the percentage of respondents who trust government was at 28 percent, the lowest percentage recorded (since 1997), with 59 percent of Republicans also expressing record-low frustration with those walking the halls of power.

But the governmental distrust is only part of the problem, as Epstein shows. During the past few years, we’ve seen the unraveling of the power structure that protected elites across industries. The #MeToo movement in particular gave this unraveling momentum, with the myriad allegations against Harvey Weinstein. Weinstein’s criminal treatment of women was more than an open secret for years, yet he was deeply connected. He held a $2 million fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in June 2016 and Bill Clinton called him a “really good friend.”

The #MeToo movement enveloped others who were previously looked upon fondly, from the popular former entertainer and potential 2020 nominee Al Franken, to billionaire casino mogul and former finance chairman of the Republican National Committee Steve Wynn, to celebrity chef Mario Batali.

Then there was the celebrity college cheating scandal, which has lifted the curtain obscuring the inherent unfairness of the college admission process. Another example took place as the 2016 election was playing out, with Elizabeth Holmes’ Theranos being exposed as a fraud to investors, but more importantly, consumers. Holmes had spent years gracing the cover of magazines, speaking at the Clinton Global Initiative and serving as a member of the Obama administration’s Presidential Ambassadors for Global Entrepreneurship. In the recent HBO documentary, “The Inventor,” journalist Roger Parloff described the “honorary horseshit” which Holmes used to shield her deceptions from so many for so long.

The movie also introduced an interesting experiment that relates to Epstein, Weinstein and others. Behavioral economist Dan Ariely explained a dice test he had conducted, which gave participants money based on an honor system. What Ariely found was that when participants were receiving money for themselves, they would lie less, and the lie detector would catch the lie more often. When the participants were giving the money to charity, they would lie more, but the lie detector would rarely catch the lie.

For a long time, our culture was willing to forgive the probable crimes of those who were simultaneously doing “good” in other areas or succeeding in their industries. Epstein gave hundreds of thousands to AIDS research. Weinstein created a media empire that amassed incredible power both with critics and at the box office. (He also gave plenty to charity.) Trump himself, who so far has yet to experience the repercussions of the #MeToo movement, was fond of boasting of the “millions” he’d given away — even when it wasn’t true. (The Epstein story has already had reverberations within Trump's administration, with the resignation of his Labor Secretary Alex Acosta, who was responsible for Epstein's lenient plea deal.)

We are living in a time of radical transparency, especially on social media. This exposing the emperor’s lack of clothes is an apolitical groundswell.

But that benefit of the doubt is in shorter and shorter supply.

We are living in a time of radical transparency, especially on social media. There is overreach to be sure. But in significant ways, this exposing the emperor’s lack of clothes is an apolitical groundswell. It is tearing down the broken and rotten institutions and pushing bad actors previously shielded by their ivory towers into the spotlight. What happens when that spotlight dims, of course, is yet to be seen.

This is crucial. But we must acknowledge the uncharted territory we’re entering. We are left with important and uneasy questions about what’s built once the rubble of the elite is cleared — how we build a better, fairer culture, together as a country.”

The last two paragraphs are particularly insightful, I think. We are entering uncharted territory, but the co-creative power of human consciousness, all 8 billion of us, is beginning to send us upward into the light as we walk through the darkness.

Fake News

While we’re on the subject of the old order, here’s an interesting one by the late Dr. Udo Ulfkotte, posted on the Global Research site. Ulfkotte was formerly an assistant editor for the largest German daily newspaper, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) for several years until 2003.

The Global Research article states that,

 “Recently, Dr.Udo Ulfkotte went on public television stating that he was forced to publish the works of intelligence agents under his own name, also adding that noncompliance with these orders would result in him losing his job.”

World Class Journalist Spills the Beans, Admits Mainstream Media is Completely Fake

Another interesting article in this vein appeared on Glenn Greenwald’s Intercept site. This article was written in 2014 by Ken Silverstein and is titled “The CIA’s Mop-Up Man: L.A. Times Reporter Cleared Stories With Agency Before Publication”

Here are the first two paragraphs:

A prominent national security reporter for the Los Angeles Times routinely submitted drafts and detailed summaries of his stories to CIA press handlers prior to publication, according to documents obtained by The Intercept.

Email exchanges between CIA public affairs officers and Ken Dilanian, now an Associated Press intelligence reporter who previously covered the CIA for the Times, show that Dilanian enjoyed a closely collaborative relationship with the agency, explicitly promising positive news coverage and sometimes sending the press office entire story drafts for review prior to publication. In at least one instance, the CIA’s reaction appears to have led to significant changes in the story that was eventually published in the Times.”

The rest of the article can be found here:

I think we can all agree that both mainstream and alternative news cannot be fully trusted. Discernment and intelligence is necessary in order to sort out the truth from the disinfo. But as Steve Krakauer points out above, the broken and rotten institutions of the old order are being torn down. That’s a good thing, and vitally necessary.
